Thank you for visiting KidsReadingCircle .com and for reviewing our privacy statement. KidsReadingCircle.com is committed to protecting the privacy and security of its online visitors. This policy statement provides our visitors (e.g., parents, teachers, librarians, and children) with an overview of the measures we have taken to provide a safe online environment especially toward children under the age of 13.
Personal Information: There is only one opportunity on this site for visitors to leave personal identifying information and that is on the contact page where we invite parents to send us an e-mail if they have an inquiry. Should a parent provide an e-mail address, said address will be used solely to address the inquiry. E-mail addresses obtained in this manner will not be collected, shared or given out in any manner. A message located on this page clearly states that children under the age of 13 are not invited or allowed to provide an e-mail address.
Children's Privacy: Children can enjoy our site's information, book lists, and puzzles without having to share personally identifiable information.
KidsReadingCircle.com complies with COPPA, the federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. It was signed into law in October 1998 to protect the privacy of children by controlling the personal information that can be collected from children online. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforces COPPA by requiring compliance with its Children's Online Privacy Protection Rule.
Computer Statistics: As you browse our site, our computer, as do most, have the ability to pick up on which pages were visited, for how long, and which type of browser and operating system tapped into the page. However, it cannot personally identify the visitor or computer that visited. As is custom among Webmasters, any page-visit statistics are used to determine which pages are of most interest and, thus, deserve to be expanded.
Links to Other Sites: This Web site contains links to other sites, primarily the sites of children's authors and illustrators. While we visit those links before we post them, and periodically after, Kidsreadingcircle.com is not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites, which may be different from the privacy practices described in this policy. Please visit the privacy practices of other sites you visit, including their own linked sites.
The Future: We reserve the right to change or modify this privacy statement at any time. However, should we add additional web forms or contests to this site, our privacy issues regarding these new applications will be clearly posted, on the home page and on this page.
