Privacy Policy

Lil Readers Book Club (“Company,” “we,” or “us”) provides access to  information through our website accessible at the URL  http://www.thepreschoolbox.com/ (the “Site”) and we may provide the  ability to use certain functionalities of the Site or provide services  of various kinds (the “Services”). This privacy policy describes our  information collection and use practices in connection with our Site and  Service, as well as circumstances under which we disclose information  collected from you. Our commitment to you is that we will not use or  disclose information collected from you other than as described in this  policy.

In order to access and use the Site and Services, you must agree to  our Online Terms and Conditions (the “Terms and Conditions”) posted on  the Site. Persons and organizations with permission to use the Service  are considered “Registered Users.” You may view portions of the Site  even if you are not a Registered User of the Service. This privacy  policy applies to Company’s collection, use and disclosure of Personal  Information (defined below) from Registered Users of the Site, as well  as from persons who merely visit the Site. Company has adopted and  implemented this privacy policy as part of our commitment to protecting  your personal information from misuse.

By submitting Personal Information through our Site or Services,  you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and you expressly consent  to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information in  accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Your Personal Information may be processed in the country in which  it was collected and in other countries, including the United States,  where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less  stringent than the laws in your country.

What Information Do We Collect?

“Personal Information” means data that allows someone to identify  or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone  number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information  about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing  data. “Non-Personal Information” means data that is not associated with  or linked to your Personal Information; Non-Personal Information does  not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We  collect Personal Information and Non-Personal Information, as described  below.

Company collects Personal Information as required to offer  Services, as listed in the Terms and Conditions, as voluntarily provided  by you in the course of correspondence or registration, and as  otherwise identified below. In addition, we collect certain information  which cannot be used to personally identify any user, such as anonymous,  aggregate or statistical data.

In order to use some Services, you may be required to complete the  applicable registration form accessible on the Site. All persons who  register are referred to as “Registered Users.” Some Services may not  require registration. Company collects and maintains a record of all  data provided through such registration forms, e.g. your name, e-mail,  mailing addresses, and password and information about your child, e.g.,  your child’s name, birthday, interests, and gender. For example,  individual users who desire to order a Product (as defined in the Terms  and Conditions) must provide certain contact information, shipping  information, billing information, and financial information (e.g., a  credit card number and expiration date) (which will be collected by us  or our third party payment processing service providers).

For some Services, each Registered User may be provided a unique  username and password that enable access to the Service. We may track  the use of those usernames and passwords in order to collect and  maintain records of individual transactions conducted through the  Services by Registered Users, and those records may be associated with  each Registered User’s individual account profile within the Company  system.

We also collect other types of Personal Information that you  provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version,  product registration number, and other requested information if you  contact us via e-mail regarding support.

We also collect and maintain records of information that you  voluntarily provide to us. For example, we may ask you to participate in  a survey, and may ask you to provide Personal Information, such as age,  gender or other demographic data. If you enter into a contest or  promotion on our Site, we will collect the information you provide to  participate in the contest or promotion. If you provide us feedback or  contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as  well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a  reply. When you post messages on the message boards of our Site, the  information contained in your posting will be stored on our servers and  other users will be able to see it. However, unless such information is  necessary for the Service or required by the Terms and Conditions, we do  not require you to provide such information to us.

We collect additional information through the Site and the Service  that is not associated with any online account or registration  information, and that cannot be used to personally identify you.  Non-Personal Information ordinarily includes aggregate, summary, or  other anonymous data, and may include, by way of example, statistics  regarding popularity of particular pages within the Site, or information  regarding types of Internet browsers used by Registered Users.

“Cookies” are small files placed on a user’s computer by a Web site  in order to facilitate use of that Web site. For example, a cookie may  contain information about a user’s preferences, so that the Web site  automatically complies with those preferences whenever the user visits  that Web site. When using the Service, we may create “cookies” on your  computer for purposes of facilitating and maintaining your current user  session, and may collect Personal Information using those cookies in  order to enable Company to identify you in connection with the Service  and to track use of the Service for purposes consistent with this  policy. 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), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.

The Site is not directed to children and children are not eligible  to use our 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 18, and no part of our Site or  Service is designed to attract people under 18. If we later learn that a  user is under 18, 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 Service.

If you decide to invite a third party to create an Account, we will  collect your and the third party’s names and e-mail addresses in order  to send an e-mail and follow up with the third party. You or the third  party may contact us to request the removal of this information from our  database.

Use and Disclosure of Collected Information

Company uses information collected from the Site and Service in  several ways, as outlined in this policy. For example, we use Personal  Information as needed to provide Site and Services, to create Accounts,  and to communicate with Registered Users. We also use both Personal  Information and Non-Personal Information when evaluating ways to improve  the Site and the Service. As further described below, in limited  circumstances we may disclose collected information, including Personal  Information, to certain third parties in connection with providing  Services or as required by law. We will not use or disclose collected  information in ways different from what is described in this policy  unless otherwise required by law.

We also use information collected through the Site and the Service  to communicate with Registered Users from whom such information was  collected in order to provide promotional materials about us. However,  unlike communications which are necessary to provide Services  (“Necessary Communications”), promotional communications are optional  (“Optional Communications”), and Company will refrain from sending that  kind of information to you if you inform us that you prefer not to  receive them, as described in more detail below.

Company uses Non-Personal Information in a variety of ways,  including, by way of example, to evaluate the performance of the Site  and Service and the general preferences of users, or to generate  anonymous statistics for our benefit or for our business partners.  Because Non-Personal Information is entirely anonymous, and therefore  can never be used by us to identify you, this policy does not limit our  ability to use or disclose Non-Personal Information. We may create  Non-Personal Information records from Personal Information by excluding  information (such as your name) that make the data personally  identifiable to you.

If we collect information through the Site and/or the Service that  you provide to us voluntarily through online forms or surveys, through  e-mail communications or by other means, we will treat that information  as described above, as applied to both Personal Information and  Non-Personal Information.

As a necessary part of providing Services, we may disclose  information collected from you as described in this policy. For example,  we may disclose certain Personal Information about you to our  third-party service providers (e.g., our third party payment  processors), so long as they are only using the Personal Information to  provide services to us. If another company acquires our company,  business, or our assets, that company will possess the Personal  Information collected by it and us and will assume the rights and  obligations regarding your Personal Information as described in this  Privacy Policy. Under certain limited circumstances, we may cooperate  with legal investigations and/or we may be subject to legal requirements  to disclose information collected through the Site or Services, such  as, by way of example, to a court or a governmental agency, and our  policy is to provide such cooperation and comply fully with all such  legal requirements. We may also disclose Personal Information to protect  or defend the rights or property of Company or users of the Services  and/or to investigate any violation or potential violation of the law,  this Privacy Policy, or Terms and Conditions. The disclosures  contemplated by this paragraph (“Necessary Disclosures”) are necessary  if you wish to use the Service. As mentioned above, Company may use and  disclose Non-Personal Information without restriction. If you do not  want us to make such Necessary Disclosures, or to use Non-Personal  Information without restriction, you must not use the Service.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you  visit our Site. These companies may use information (not including your  name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to  this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods  and services of interest to you. If you would like more information  about this practice and to know your choices about not having this  information used by these companies, go to  www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

If you enter and win a contest or other promotion, you expressly  consent to (a) Company providing your Personal Information to the third  party providing the prize for the contest or other promotion, solely to  provide you such prize and (b) Company publicly disclosing your name,  city, state, and the fact that you won the contest or promotion. If we  will be disclosing additional Personal Information in connection with a  contest or other promotion, we will disclose that to you in a separate  notice prior to your entering the contest or other promotion. By  entering such contest or other promotion, you expressly consent to such  disclosures.

Choice, Opting-In and Opting-Out Regarding Optional Communications

Because we respect your privacy, we may from time to time provide  certain opportunities for you to indicate your preferences regarding how  we use and/or disclose information collected about you from the Site  and the Service. If you are a Registered User, by indicating your  preferences in the online profile your create, which includes your  registration information and other information voluntarily provided by  you (your “Registration Profile”), you will be able to inform us whether  you wish to receive certain Optional Communications from us.

To modify your e-mail subscriptions, please let us know by  modifying your preferences in the “My Account” section. Please note that  due to email production schedules you may receive any emails already in  production.

We do not maintain responsibility for the manner in which third  parties use or further disclose Personal Information collected from you  through the Site or Services, after we have disclosed that information  to those third parties. However, we do require our third-party service  providers to promise not to use such information except as necessary to  provide the relevant services to us. If you do not want Company to use  or disclose Personal Information collected about you in the manners  identified in this policy as Necessary Communications and/or Necessary  Disclosures, you may not use the Site or any Service.

The Site contains links to other Web sites. Please be aware that we  are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such  other Web sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements  of each and every Web site they visit. This privacy statement applies  solely to information collected by us through the Site.

Access to Personal Information Collected From You

Registered Users may access their Registration Profiles at any time  to update Personal Information contained within that Registration  Profile. Subsequent uses or disclosures of information by us will  reflect those changes, but we have no ability to update any information  previously disclosed to any third party.

You may request deletion of your Personal Information by signing  into the “My Account” section of our site and removing your shipping  addresses, billing addresses & payment information. Please note that  we may be required 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 any information, it will be deleted from  the active database, but may remain in our archives.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety  of your personal information. Your personal information is contained  behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of  persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required  to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access  your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All  sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket  Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only  accessed as stated above.

Furthermore, access to Personal Information is physically  restricted within our own offices, so that only certain of our employees  are granted access to information as appropriate to perform specific  jobs and tasks (e.g., performing customer service).

Please be aware that, although we endeavor to provide security for  information in our possession and control, no security system can  prevent against all potential security breaches, and we bear no  liability for uses or disclosures of Personal Information or  Non-Personal Information arising in connection with the theft thereof.  Likewise, Registered Users are responsible for safeguarding the  confidentiality of passwords to any Services, and we bear no liability  for access to, or use or disclosure of, Personal Information, if such  access, use or disclosure arises in connection with the theft or  disclosure (whether intentional or negligent) of a password.

If you have any questions about our security measures, please contact us.

Changes to This Policy

If we change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on the  Site so that users are always aware of what information we collect, how  we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we will disclose it. We  reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please  review it before disclosing personal information on one of our Websites.  If we make changes that materially affect our uses or disclosures of  personally identifiable information that we have previously collected  from you, we will provide a mechanism for you to opt out of the new use  or disclosure.
