It also requires us to obtain verifiable consent from a child's parent for certain collection, use, and disclosure of the child's personal information. Our Website is not intended for children under 13 years of age to visit or utilize without parental consent and supervision.

We may request additional information about your child, such as birth date, personality traits, and color and style preferences, but this information is optional. We specify whether information is required or optional when we request it.

Our Practices for Disclosing Children's Information

- To third parties we use to support the internal operations of the Company who are bound by contractual or other obligations to use the information only for such purpose and to keep the information confidential.
- If we are required to do so by law or legal process, such as to comply with any court order or subpoena or to respond to any government or regulatory request.
- If we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Company, our customers or others, including to:
- protect the safety of a child;
- protect the safety and security of the Website; or
- enable us to take precautions against liability.
- To law enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety.
At any time, you may review your child's personal information maintained by us, require us to correct or delete the personal information, and/or refuse to permit us from further collecting or using the child's information.
You can review, change, or delete your child's personal information by:
- Logging into your account and visiting your “Kids Info” page.
- Sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. To protect your privacy and security, we may require you to take certain steps or provide additional information to verify your identity before we provide any information or make corrections.
Disclosure of Information
We do not sell or share information about our customers, except in the specific cases described here:
Third-Party Service Providers: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and email, developing systems, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
Business Transfers: As our business evolves and grows we may buy or sell other entities or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless the customer consents otherwise). In the event that the Company or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will likely be one of the transferred assets.
Business Partners: Company may share aggregated usage and demographic information collected via the Website about our users and the services we provide, as well as information that does not identify any individual, without restriction.
Protection of the Company and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe the release is appropriate to comply with the law, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Company employees, users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. This does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
Security of Information
We work to protect the security of your information during order transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts order information you transmit. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, the Company cannot ensure the security of any information you provide, and you do so at your own risk. Once the Company receives your transmission, we will make reasonable efforts and comply with industry practices to ensure its security on our systems. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to log off after using a shared computer.
We do not store any credit card information on our Website or servers, but if you elect to save your credit card data, it is stored with an industry standard CIM service such as Stripe, Paypal, or others that are officially PCI compliant (a standard for payment, credit card and data security).

- To present our Website and its contents to you.
