You do not need to provide your e-mail address or other personally-identifiable information in order to use and enjoy our Web site. But, in order to receive Kids Off The Couch e-newsletters, we will need your e-mail address and zip code. We will not disclose, sell or rent this information to any third party without your consent. In addition, every Kids Off The Couch newsletter provides a link to "unsubscribe" which allows you to remove yourself from our subscription list. You will have an opportunity to correct, update or modify your personal information at any time by changing your personal preferences. Furthermore, whenever you use the "Send to A Friend" button [contained in our newsletter and on the website] to forward our newsletter, the recipient(s) will NOT be added automatically to our subscription list.
Our website is directed towards users who reside in the United States. It is not our intent to gather personally identifiable information from persons residing outside the United States.
Please note: Children under the age of 18 currently cannot receive our newsletters.
We may also request additional "demographic" information about you, such as favorite movies and adventures and ages of your children. This demographic data allows us to provide you with a site that is better suited to your needs and helps us to make our Web site more user-friendly. You do not need to provide this information in order to receive our newsletters. We may share, on an aggregated basis, demographic information with advertisers, partners and other third parties, but no such information will be personally-identifiable to you.
Our Web site is directed at adults seeking to find new and interesting ways to get kids off the couch and explore the world. We think we can do this through our Popcorn Adventures and "Tips for Success."
In compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, we will NOT knowingly collect, use, or distribute personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian. Accordingly, we cannot at this time send any newsletters to children under the age of 18.
You should also understand that in the course of serving advertisements to our Web site, third party advertisers and sponsors may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser. We do not control these cookies. Additionally, Kids Off The Couch also uses transparent GIF images. We use these images to track the e-mails that we send out.
Like most standard website services, Kids Off the Couch uses log files. This may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks. This information helps us to analyze information to figure out how subscribers use our site. For example, this information will tell us how much time users spend on our site and which functionality is most utilized. The collection of this information allows us to, among other things, prepare for traffic load demands and to efficiently deliver your Popcorn Adventures. We typically do not link IP addresses and other log file information to any personally identifiable information. This means that a visitor's session will be logged, but the visitor remains anonymous to us.
All information under our control is stored on restricted database servers. We employ security measures to safeguard your personal information and privacy. However, you should understand that "perfect security" is never guaranteed.
