Privacy policy

KIDSTIR PRIVACY POLICY

Welcome to www.kidstir.com (the “Site”), a website owned and operated by Kidstir LLC. (“Kidstir,” “us,” or “we”). We know you are concerned about privacy, so we developed this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) to explain how we collect, use, and disclose information from you, our user (“you” or “your”). As a guiding principal, our mission at Kidstir is to help parents spark a love of good food in their family, as well as a number of related services (“Services”). Read on and we will tell you how this all works.

So we are clear on the terminology we use, “Personal Information” means contact information (i.e., your name, address, email address, and/or telephone number) and any other non-public information that is used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual, and any other non-public information that is associated with that information. “Anonymous Information” means information that is not used or intended to be used to personally identify an individual. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy will have the meaning ascribed to them in our Terms of Use.

CHILDREN
Our Site and Services are targeted to parents. The Site and Services are not directed to children and children are not eligible to use our Site or Services. Protecting the privacy of children is very important to us. We do not collect or maintain Personal Information from people we actually know are under 13 years of age, and no part of our Site or Services is designed to attract people under 13 years of age. If we later learn that a user is under 13 years of age, we will take steps to remove that user’s Personal Information from our databases and to prevent the user from utilizing the Site and the Services.

By registering with the Site and/or using the Services, you are consenting to our collection, use and disclosure practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy describes our practices for both a “Visitor” (which means that you simply browse the Site) and a “Member”, which means that you have subscribed to a membership for our Services and created an account (your “Account”).

BY USING OUR SITE OR SERVICES OR SUBMITTING PERSONAL INFORMATION THROUGH OUR SITE OR SERVICES, YOU AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION ACCORDING TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY US OR ON OUR BEHALF IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AS WELL AS OTHER COUNTRIES (INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES) WHERE LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
Personal Information
In general, the Personal Information we gather enables us to provide the Site, Services (including Membership) and Products to you. We collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily when you register with us, become a Member and/or order Products. To create an “Account” with a user name, we require that you provide certain Personal Information, including your name and email address.

You are not required to have an Account to place an order for Products, but you are required to have an Account to become a Member. Payments on the Site may be processed by our service providers who collect your credit card information directly, and we will not have access to or see your credit card information as part of such transaction. We also collect other types of Personal Information that you provide to us voluntarily as you use the Site or if you contact us via e-mail regarding the Site or Products.

If you participate in a sweepstakes, contest or giveaway on our Site, we may ask you for your e-mail address and/or home number (to notify you if you win or not). We may also ask for first and last names, and sometimes post office addresses to verify your identity. In some situations we may need additional information as a part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice. These sweepstakes and contests are voluntary. We recommend that you read the rules for each sweepstakes and contest that you enter.

If you choose to use our “Refer a Friend” feature, we will ask for your friends’ email address. We will send your friend a one time email inviting them to visit the Site. We do not store this information or use it for any other purpose other than to fulfill send the email at your request and to validate participation in our Refer a Friend program.

Information We Collect via Technology.
As you use the Site or the Service, certain information may be passively collected by Cookies, navigational data like Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and third party tracking services, including:

• Information Collected by Our Servers. To make our Site and Services more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.

• Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. This includes some of the actions you take on the Site, such as the content of searches you perform on the Site. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Site, track users’ movements around the Site, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Services to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Site or the Services again, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.

• Cookies. Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Site more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept cookies from our Service for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or all functionality of the Services, such as taking courses. If you have any questions about how to disable or modify cookies, please let us know at the contact information provided below.

• Third Party Service Providers. We may use third party service providers such as Google Analytics to help analyze how users use the Site. By way of example, Google Analytics uses Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Site, what pages they visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve our Site and Services. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Site, rather than your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the information generated through the use of Google Analytics with your Personal Information. Although Google Analytics plants a persistent Cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit the Site, the Cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to the Site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy.

HOW WE USE INFORMATION

• Respond to your requests, resolve disputes and/or troubleshoot problems;

If you do not want us to send you emails or otherwise contact you, you can always opt out of receiving certain communications by following the instructions we provide to you when we contact you or by emailing us at hello@kidstir.com. Please note that even if you opt-out, we may still send you Site and Services related communications such as purchase receipts and reminders to complete purchased courses.

We may also use your Personal Information to create Anonymous Information by excluding information that makes the information personally identifiable to you.

Anonymous Information
Generally, we use Anonymous Information in statistical analysis to help us analyze patterns in the use of our Services. We may, through our use of Cookies, keep you logged into our Site, collect your click-stream data, tailor web content to you and personalize your experience on the Site. We may also use your Anonymous Information to improve our internal operations, notify visitors of updates to our Site and Services, and software and customize the content and layout of the Site and/or Service.

ACCESSING AND CONTROLLING YOUR INFORMATION
You may correct and update information we collect from you by logging onto the Site and accessing your Account.

We try to process these requested changes as soon as is possible, but it may take up to thirty (30) days to make requested changes.

Certain information is necessary in order for us to provide the Site or Services; therefore, if you delete such necessary information you will not be able to use the Site or Services. Please note that even though you may request the deletion of your Personal Information by us, we may be required (by law or otherwise, such as to prevent fraud, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, or enforce our Terms of Use) to keep this information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time) in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements. When we delete Personal Information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives.

USER FEEDBACK
If you provide feedback to us, we may use and disclose such feedback in accordance with the terms in our Terms of Service, provided we do not associate such feedback with your Personal Information.

THIRD PARTY SITES
The Site may contain links to other websites. Kidstir is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other websites.

The ability to access information of third parties from the Site or Services is for your convenience and does not signify our endorsement of such third parties, their services, other websites, locations or their contents.
