Google Advertising Cookie and Privacy Policies
At Story Soup Kids, our purpose and goal is to encourage creative
storytelling. Literacy is very important in our eyes and we want every child
to have fun and enjoy reading. We welcome our visitors, help parents to
parent more effectively and treat guests with the utmost respect. We also
take the issue of privacy very seriously. We respect the privacy of
children, and do not collect any more personal information than is
reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in the activities we
offer at our Web sites.
Kids: Be sure to ask your parents for
permission before you send any information about yourself (your name,
address, e-mail address, etc.) to us or anyone else over the Internet.
Parents and Guardians: We encourage you
to get involved with your children's online usage and to be aware of the
activities in which they are participating. While we welcome all of our
guests to enjoy the many features of our site, we encourage you to limit
your children's time online. When used properly, the Internet can be
entertaining and educational. But even we at Story Soup Kids realize that
there is a lot more to a well-balanced life than just 'surfing the web'.
Information Collection Policies
At our sites, we have a policy of collecting limited personally identifiable
information. To enable children to participate in some of our online
activities, we may ask them to provide us with their first name and e-mail
address. Story Soup Kids will only use this information for internal
purposes – for fulfillment of a requested transaction or to respond to
children’s specific requests to participate in activities, such as sending
stories they have wrote.
When you, or your child visits our sites, we automatically collect certain
non-personally identifiable information, such as the type of computer
operating system (e.g., Windows 98 or Mac OS) and browser (e.g., Netscape or
Internet Explorer) that you use, and the domain name of your Internet
service provider (e.g., America Online, Earthlink). (See “Cookies”
below.) We use this information to improve the design and content of our
site, and to enable us to personalize your Internet experience. We also may
use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage and to offer you
products, programs or services.
We Do Not Share Personal Information
We do not share any personal information. No third parties will ever receive
any data collected
Story Soup Kids uses an order form for users to request products and order
information. For that order form, we collect the user’s name, e-mail
address, billing address, phone number, shipping address, and necessary
financial information to process the order (i.e. credit card number).
We will disclose the information we maintain when required to do so by law –
for example, in response to a court order or subpoena. We may also disclose
such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request.
If Story Soup Kids, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, the
information we collect may be one of the transferred assets. Any such
transfer will be subject to applicable privacy laws.
