What Information Is Collected, How Is It Collected, and for What Purposes
Many of the ways in which you interact with the Site allow us to learn more about you and enhance your experience. We collect and store statistics and other information about the online activities of our visitors on an aggregated basis. We use your IP address (which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the Web) to help diagnose problems with our servers, and otherwise to administer the Site, such as to gather demographic information that is not identifiable.
Categories of Personal Information Collected
In the past 12 months, we have collected the following categories of personal information, and we provide examples of information that would fall within each category: identifiers (name and email address); commercial information (products purchased); internet or other electronic network activity information (IP address); professional or employment information (profession); and inferences drawn from any of the information identified in this subdivision to create a profile about a consumer reflecting the consumer’s preferences.
Purposes for Collecting Personal Information
As described in more detail below, in those instances where we do collect personal information, we use it only for the purposes of improving your experience on our Site, for our own marketing, facilitating online ordering, to develop new products and services, communicating with you, and to help us otherwise manage our business.
We use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our company. Your contact information is only used with your permission to provide you with information about us from time to time (such as newsletters) and except in the event of a merger or acquisition, will not be shared with other companies who may want to contact our visitors, unless otherwise specified upon collection. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below. Demographic and profile data may be used for marketing and targeting purposes.
Tracking how users interact with our Site helps us to develop new features and content. We use this data to tailor the visitor’s experience at our Site, showing them content that we think they might be interested in, and displaying the content according to their preferences.
Online surveys and contests, which we may conduct from time to time, may ask users for contact information (like their e-mail address). We use contact data from our surveys to send the user information about our company. The user’s contact information is only used to contact the user when necessary. Where we use personal information to communicate with you, users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
Categories of Sources
You directly submit much of the personal information that we collect. Examples of when you voluntarily submit this kind of information include when you answer our polls, enter sweepstakes or contests, fill out the registration page, send us feedback or post in our chat rooms or message boards. The more accurate this information is, the better we are able to customize your experience. Our Site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information like your email address. This is for personalization purposes as well as a unique identifier that allows us to contact you when sending our news releases, e-newsletter or to tell you that you have won one of the sweepstakes offers available to registered users. Additional demographic information (like birthday, profession, or reason for using Cabbagepatchkids.com) is used to help us customize your experience and develop new features that are most relevant to our users. We also automatically collect certain personal information through online tracking technologies, as discussed in the Cookies section below.
Sharing Personal Information
We disclose all of the categories of personal information that we collect to our website and e-commerce service provider(s). Also, on particular pages where we ask for your contact and other personal information, we may explicitly tell you that the data we are collecting on that page will be shared with third parties. For example, before you submit answers to questions we ask in an advertiser-sponsored promotion, we will tell you that your answers will be shared with that advertiser. Providing information after that disclosure constitutes your intention to interact with such third parties. We may also share personal information as necessary in connection with the sale of our business, to enforce or defend our legal rights, and/or to comply with law or legal requests.
Children’s privacy is of major concern to us.
- WE DO NOT collect online contact information without prior parental consent or parental notification, which will include an opportunity for the parent to prevent use of the information and participation in the activity. Without prior parental consent, online information will only be used to respond directly to the child’s request and will not be used for other purposes.
- WE DO NOT collect personal offline contact information without prior parental consent.
- WE DO NOT distribute to third parties any personal information without prior parental consent (and we do not sell personal information, including such information relating to anyone younger than 16)
- WE DO NOT give the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personal contact information without prior parental consent
- WE DO NOT require a child to provide us with more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in an activity as a condition of participation.
