Anonymous Information Collected Passively By Annie's
When you visit the Site, Annie's will automatically capture certain anonymous information from our visitors. This includes the Internet provider's name (e.g. AOL), paths taken through a given site, "click stream" activity such as when you click on a banner advertisement, and IP address. No information that could identify you as an individual is collected in this manner.
Personal Information Collected By Annie's
As required by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"), we will not collect more personal information from children under 13 than reasonably necessary to participate in activities.
Children are not permitted to join the Creative Girls Club themselves. Adults can sign children up for the Young Woodworkers Kit Club by providing the child's name and address as well as the subscriber's name, address, email address, and credit card information. The use of information provided by adults is governed by Annie's Privacy Pledge.
We may collect demographic information from children, but will not combine such information with children's personal information unless we obtain verifiable parental consent.
Use and Disclosure of Your Information
Annie's will use a child's personal information for the purpose for which it was provided and as otherwise set forth herein.
We may share a child's personal information with certain independent contractors, vendors and suppliers with whom we contract to provide specific services and products related to the Site or our business, such as hosting and maintaining the Site. Access to and use of a child's personal information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for them to perform their services. We may also share a child's personal information in the event of a merger, acquisition, transfer of assets or bankruptcy. We may disclose a child's personal information when we determine that such disclosure is necessary to comply with applicable law, subpoenas, or court orders, or to protect the interests or safety of Annie's or other visitors to the Site.
We may share aggregated demographic and other non-identifiable information with third parties from time to time. This information is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person.
Parents may consent to the collection and use of their child's personal information without consenting to the disclosure of this information to third parties, unless such parties are providing services on Annie's behalf.
The Site may make available message boards and/or other community functions. All messages may be monitored and edited before posting. Please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal, financial or other information. You use community functions at your own risk.
Security of Your Information
Annie's values your privacy and the security of your information. We utilize firewalls, secure access storage facilities and other industry standards to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information.
Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure online commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, to protect the privacy of your information as it travels over the Internet. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
