We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to websites.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through this Site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this Site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the website You just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. Other information may include information about your laptop, tablet, mobile device and system, software, your usage of the Site, location data, time zone, network Media Access Control (MAC) address, language preference, referring pages, exit pages, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, and the date and time of this activity, etc.  We may also receive either non-personal or public information from third parties in connection with market and demographic studies and/or data that We may use to supplement personal information provided directly by You. In addition, this Site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or web beacons. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this Site might not work without cookies.

This Site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Site visitors, customize the Site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Site for your use. Such information is not combined with Personal information collected elsewhere on the Site unless You have consented.

More Information about Cookies

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about You and your preferences.

“Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve navigation, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the site “remembers” previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters and blocks subsequent changes), and collect aggregate statistical information on the site. They are erased once you exit your web browser or otherwise turn off your computer.

“Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (such as passwords), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. Persistent cookies placed by this Site on your computer may hold personally identifiable information, but only if You have registered or have otherwise consented to the retention of personally identifiable information you have provided at the Site. Otherwise, Our Site’s server only knows that an unidentified visitor with your cookie has returned to the Site. You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. To learn more about cookies and how to specify your preferences, please search for “cookie” in the “Help” portion of your browser.

A site may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so You can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). The IP address can be used to diagnose problems with a server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to a site, and administer and improve the site.

“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Tags may be placed both on online advertisements that bring people to the site and on different pages of the site. Such tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.

“Navigational data” (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.

For avoidance of all doubt, any other non-personal information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists

Notwithstanding the above, You acknowledge and agree that We may continue to use any non-personally-identifying information in accordance with this Privacy & Cookie Policy (e.g., for the purpose of analysis, statistics and the like) also following termination of your use of Our Site, for any reason whatsoever.

The collection, use, and disclosure of information contemplated in this Privacy & Cookie Policy may involve a transfer of the information to jurisdictions located outside your country of residence that may not have equivalent laws and rules regarding personally identifiable information. In these cases, you will be asked to consent to such transfers and disclosures in accordance with this Privacy & Cookie Policy.
