Privacy

The following describes the Privacy Policy for Ourkidsthankyou.com website.

Your Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we
provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the
choices you can make about the way your information is collected and
used. You agree to agree to these policies by virtue of using our
website in a way that leads to you providing us with personal information.

State Law & Accompanying Rights

Please understand that you may have additional rights originating from
State laws based on where you live. These State-based rights may
augment, strengthen, or otherwise somehow compliment any privacy rights
you have inherently or under Federal law. Our policy is to comply fully
with the privacy policies of every jurisdiction in which we operate.
Accordingly, you are free to use our Contact information to reach us at
any time to assert any State rights.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For
that reason, our website will never collect or maintain information at
our website from those we actually know are under 18, and no part of our
website is structured to attract anyone under 18.

Under our Terms of Service and Conditions of Use, children under 18 are
not allowed to use our website and access our services. It is not our
intention to offer products or services to minors.

Google Analytics

Ourkidsthankyou.com uses Google Analytics to help analyse how users use
the site. The tool uses cookies, which are text files placed on your
computer, to collect standard Internet log information and visitor
behaviour information in an anonymous form. The information generated by
the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is
transmitted to Google. This information is then used to evaluate
visitors use of this website and to compile statistical reports on
website activity.

We will never (and will not allow any third party to) use the
statistical analytics tool to track or to collect any Personally
Identifiable Information of visitors to our site. Google will not
associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Neither we
nor Google will link, or seek to link, an IP address with the identity
of a computer user.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings
on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be
able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this
website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in
the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Other Collection of Personal Information

When visiting our website, the IP address used to access our website may
be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is
purely used to analyze trends, administer our website, track users
movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use such
as statistical assessments and website improvement. Most importantly,
any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable
information.

Other information may be collected as well, which is rather typical of
most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our website
is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website, and your
destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other common
data collected includes the type of operating system the computer you
are using to access our website has. Similarly, the type of web browser
is often noted. Again, this is common data collection, and helps
ultimately produce a better end-user experience.

Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means of
improving user experience by allows us to customize your use of our
website. Simple information is transferred to your computer to allow the
content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on.
You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies, and note
that you are free to make adjustments in your web browser to disable
these or otherwise receive notification of cookies so you can take
whatever desired action you so choose. Please understand that refusing
cookies may cripple some of our website features and render some aspects
useless to you.

At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are
the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog
post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder),
provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise.
Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information,
such as credit card information, Paypal addresses, your physical address
for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to
provide some of this information may lead to us being unable to provide
you with the products or services you’ve requested.

A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may be
protected by a username and password. Whether a username and password is
generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be
connected with some other information related to or connected with you.
This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is
subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must
necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords,
by their very nature, should be kept private.

Handling of Personal Information

Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us
or our vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose
something in a blog post comment. That private? information is now
public, and we have no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing
information with any other third party not functioning as a service
provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes
subject to the policy that party has in place.

Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information
from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally
to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your
personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you
have authorized us to do so.

Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with
third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they
provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and
are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services
in-house. However, you are never required to deal with any such third
party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and
they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall
whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to
understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this information
about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third
parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion.

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we may
be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face
ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the
same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or
allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those
cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may
simply be compelled to do so by law.

On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your
private information in order to protect our own interests. For instance,
in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other
intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal
information.

Comments Policy

As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few
simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match
that discourages others from entering into the fray.

So here is Ourkidsthankyou.com comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following:

You may comment without registering. You can log-in via Disqus, OpenID,
Twitter, Facebook?or not at all. It’s up to you. You may post
anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I
may change this rule if it is abused.

You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are
you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I
would rather receive your comments on Ourkidsthankyou.com than via email.
It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather than
answer several similar emails.

You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you
disagree with me?or anyone else, for that matter?do so in a way that is
respectful. In my opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public
square to tolerate it here.

Ourkidsthankyou.com reserves the right to delete your comments. This is
my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The First
Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not
mine.

Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that is,
in my sole opinion, (a)snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory,
abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive,
false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to
violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including
intellectual property laws; or (d) spam,? i.e., an attempt to advertise,
solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post
a link to your site or your most recent blog post.

You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly
disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting
on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you
post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that
may result from those postings.

You grant Ourkidsthankyou.com a license to post your comments. This
license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You
grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce,
and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to
a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring,
honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy
will facilitate this.
