Information We Collect and How We Use It
This is our pledge to you, our customer. We will never sell any customer information, including e-mail addresses, to any third party. Information gathered by us will be used only by ParentalGuide.org for the purpose of setting up customer accounts, newsletters, emails and communications regarding orders placed with ParentalGuide.org.
ParentalGuide.org collects certain information from and about its customers three different ways: from our Web Server logs, the user, and with cookies.
A. Web Server Logs and Cookies: A cookie is a small text file placed on your computer’s hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or viruses and ours automatically delete themselves after 5 days if you have not created a shopping cart during that time.
When you visit our site we may track information to administer the site and ParentalGuide.org may use the cookies to track your shopping cart information once you begin actively shopping here. The cookie also eases your shopping experience by loading pages faster.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. 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, click here.
B. Customer Information: Visitors to our site can register to purchase merchandise or to receive newsletters and emails. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number, fax number, account number, and other relevant information. If you are purchasing merchandise we will also request financial information. The financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the merchandise you purchased. If you purchase using a credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registration, we may ask for the relevant info.
Our system automatically deletes your credit card information on a regular basis. Your privacy is our first and main concern. We understand you want to purchase products online and not have to worry about compromising your personal information to do so.
Limitations: Even though we try our best to ensure your privacy and security and always look to use the best available and tested technologies to guard and protect our Web site and our customers, we cannot guarantee absolute security, as new security threats are constantly being dealt with.
