Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy   in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and make use   of personal information. The following outlines our Privacy Policy.

When accessing our Website, The Polite Child Inc. will learn certain information about   you during your visit.

Similar to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology   called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”)   and Web server logs to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information   gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of   visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited   just before and just after our Web site, your IP address.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique   identifier. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer   for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically   designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser   if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser   only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not   the cookies sent to you by other sites.

IP Addresses

IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the   Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network   to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web   server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data”   so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you.

Email Information

If you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content   of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We   provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ   in the maintenance of information received online, mail and telephone.

How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?

Broadly speaking, we use personal information for purposes of administering   our business activities, providing customer service and making available other   items and services to our customers and prospective customers.

The Polite Child Inc. will not obtain personally-identifying information about you when you   visit our site, unless you choose to provide such information to us, nor will   such information be sold or otherwise transferred to unaffiliated third parties   without the approval of the user at the time of collection.

We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words,   when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection   of our legal rights.


A Special Note About Children

Children are not eligible to use our web site and services and we ask that  minors (under the age of 13) do not submit any personal information to us. If  you are a minor, you can use this site only in conjunction with permission and  guidance from your parents or guardians. Any information you do submit will be held in strictest confidence.

How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?

Email is not recognized as a secure medium of communication. For this reason,   we request that you do not send private information to us by email. However,   doing so is allowed, but at your own risk. Some of the information you may enter   on our Web site may be transmitted securely via a secure medium known as Secure   Sockets Layer, or SSL. Credit Card information is never transmitted via email.

The Polite Child Inc. may use software programs to create summary statistics, which are used   for such purposes as assessing the number of visitors to the different sections   of our site, what information is of most and least interest, determining technical   design specifications, and identifying system performance or problem areas.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available   to all users, The Polite Child Inc. uses software programs to monitor network traffic to identify   unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.

Policy Changes

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy at any time with or without   notice. However, please be assured that if the Privacy Policy changes in the   future, we will not use the personal information you have submitted to us under   this Privacy Policy in a manner that is materially inconsistent with this Privacy   Policy, without your prior consent.

We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with these principles   in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected   and maintained.
