Our Commitment To Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct use of information, the Company has put in place appropriate physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the personal information we collect on-line. You should, however, keep in mind that no internet transmission is wholly secure or error-free. Information collected by the Company is used internally by its authorized employees for three main purposes. First, we collect information to determine how to improve our Website by seeing which content areas, features and products are most popular with our customers. Second, we collect information in order to personalize the Website for our returning customers. For example, in the future, we may recommend products or features you may like based on what you have liked in the past. Third, we keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends and statistics, and then we discard it. We do not sell, rent, loan, or transfer any personal information regarding our customers to any unrelated third parties.
Children Under 13
Some of the content on this Website may appeal to children under the age of 13. This Website is governed by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) and the guidelines of the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc. We encourage parents to spend time online with your children and to monitor your children's internet use. Children under 13 should get parents' permission before giving out email addresses or any personal information. We highly recommend that parents view with their children the Federal Trade Commission's website at www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/index.html to learn more about how COPPA protects children's privacy online. On this Website, occasionally, we may collect personal information from children under 13. However, every effort will be made to ensure that we obtain parents' consent before collecting personal information from children under 13. Parents can provide their consent via credit card verification, by email or by an authorization form faxed to our office. Types of personal information that may be collected from children under 13 may include their name, home address, email address or date of birth. Such information may be used as part of a promotion, contest or birthday club program. Personal information will never be shared with advertisers or other third parties. At any time, parents may request to review the personal information collected from their child, to have it deleted, or to request that no further information be collected from their child. Parents also may request to have the Company discontinue further e-mail communications to them and/or their child.
