Kidpower Privacy Policy

Our General Policy

Kidpower® recognizes the importance of protecting information we may collect from visitors to our sites. Our policy is to use the information we acquire from visitors to our sites for internal purposes only, and we maintain appropriate security measures to keep this information private. The only exception is “Postings” which is discussed in terms of use. Your browser, however, does automatically tell us the type of computer and operating system you are using.

Users can visit the sites without revealing any information about themselves. If one chooses to give us personal information via the Internet for the purposes of correspondence, making a donation, processing an order, or providing a subscription to a publication, then it is our intent to let you know how we will use such information.

If users tell us that they do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact, we will respect those wishes. If users wish, they can review or correct the personal information we have collected. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us. We analyze this data for trends, insights and statistics, and then we discard it. Information may be maintained on an opt-in basis only for receipt of communication and products from Kidpower. Only users of 13 years or older can opt in.

Kidpower takes precautions to keep the user information disclosed to us secure, and such information will not be disclosed to third parties for commercial purposes. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. Kidpower uses SSL encryption throughout the site, for all financial transactions, and to protect personal information.

Use of Cookies

Certain sections of the Kidpower® web sites use “cookies” to store user information. A cookie is a small string of text that a web site can send to your browser. A cookie cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive, pass on computer viruses, or capture your email address. Currently, web sites use cookies to enhance the user’s visit; in general, cookies can securely store a user’s ID and password, personalize home pages, identify which parts of a site have been visited, or keep track of selections in a “shopping cart.” Cookies help us understand which parts of our web sites are the most popular, where our visitors are going, and how long they spend there. We use cookies to study traffic patterns on our site so we can make the site even better.

Cookies were originally designed to help a web site distinguish a user’s browser as a previous visitor and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. If you are just browsing Kidpower’s web site, a cookie identifies only your browser. If you become a registered user on a Kidpower web site (with a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information that we believe will be of value to you based on preferences you have indicated while visiting the site. It is possible to set your browser to inform you when a cookie is being placed – this way, you have the opportunity to decide whether to accept the cookie. If you are just browsing our site and are not a registered user, you do not have to accept a cookie and you can still continue browsing the site. However, if you are visiting a site where you will be accessing a confidential account, you must accept that site’s cookies because they are essential for site administration and security.

We collect two types of information:

1. Standard Web server traffic pattern information. General traffic, site usage, and length of stay information is collected and stored in log files. Log files are transaction records maintained on Web servers to record information such as: Service provider IP addresses, browser versions, referring web sites, average number of pages requested, average duration of visit to the site, and total visitor traffic. This type of information is shared externally only on an aggregated basis.

2. Personal information. We do not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you provide it to us voluntarily and knowingly, as described below.

Credit card numbers are sent directly and securely to PayPal or Stripe and held only until the charge can be processed (usually several minutes), and then the number is only available with the processor for purposes of problem resolution.

Online Donations and Purchases

If you choose to purchase membership or materials from our online resource library or ebookstore, we require your contact information, use secure credit card processors to collect standard credit card information (card number, card type, expiration date), and keep a record of your purchase.
