Information Collection and Use
Smartycat Kids® is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. Smartycat Kids collects information from our users at several different points on our web site.
In order to access certain features of this web site, a user may be required to complete a registration form. During registration, a user is required to give his/her contact information (such as name and e-mail address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date). This information is used to contact the user about the services on our site in which they have expressed interest, and is used for billing purposes to fill customers’ orders. If we have trouble processing an registration, this contact information is used to get in touch with the user.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. Our web shopping cart utilizes cookies to facilitate the ordering process; our login service uses session cookies to remember subscriber login information.
We use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movements, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We use an outside credit card processing company to bill users for services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.
These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we, Smartycat Kids LLC, are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this web site.
If a user wishes to subscribe to any of our mailing lists, we ask for contact information such as name and e-mail address. Registrations to our Smartycat Kids programs are registered to our mailing list and can unsubscribe at any time.
This web site takes every precaution to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, your information is protected both on-line and off-line.
When our registration/order form asks users to enter sensitive information, such as a credit card number, that information is encrypted and is protected with the best encryption software in the industry – SSL. While on a secure page, such as our registration/order form, the lock icon on the bottom of web browsers, becomes locked.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information on-line, we also do everything in our power to protect user-information off-line. All of our users’ information, not just the sensitive information mentioned above, is restricted. Only those who need the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information.
If you have any questions about the security at our web site, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
