Privacy Policy

 

C.A.D.O. has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this web site:

Information Automatically Logged C.A.D.O. may collect and disclose non-personal user information (for example, IP addresses) in aggregate form. An IP address is a number given to a user by a web server. Examples of information provided by an IP address include: service provider, type of browser and type of system used. C.A.D.O. may use this information to improve its site, make it more responsive to the needs of the user and to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our web site. This non-personal information may also be shared with third parties for marketing, advertising or research purposes. An IP address is not used to obtain personal information about a user.

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of information that a web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make web-surfing easier for you by saving your passwords, purchases, and preferences while you are visiting our site. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find them at most major web sites. By showing how and when guests use the site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies.


Registration Forms:

Sweepstakes, contests, games, and other promotions run on the C.A.D.O. site may require the user to provide some personally identifiable information to participate such as full name, address, e-mail address and phone number. Children under 13 are encouraged to ask permission from a parent before entering a contest. Children will be told, in easy-to-understand language, exactly why the information is required (i.e., to contact winners). As discussed above, some personally identifiable information may be shared with a reputable outside company that administers some of our sweepstakes and contests, but this information will be used by the contest administrator only for the purpose for which it is collected, and the contest administrator will not sell, market or transfer this information to other companies. C.A.D.O. may also use this information to give us some idea about our visitors, so we can tell, for example, how many visitors to our site play a particular game.

In order for a child who wins a contest to receive a prize, he/she must submit a signed parental release giving C.A.D.O. permission to send the gift. All prizes are sent to the parents and not to the child directly. Except as described above, no information obtained from a contest entrant under the age of 13 is ever sold or transferred to third parties by C.A.D.O.

CHAT ROOMS, BULLETIN BOARDS AND SUBMISSIONS

C.A.D.O. may also obtain information from a user when he/she logs on to a chat room, posts to a bulletin board, sends in an illustration or drawing or participates in any of a number of other activities. Once again, children are encouraged to ask a parent for permission to use any of these features of the site. Children are also encouraged to use a "screen name" their initials or just their first name; no last names and/or street addresses are ever required to participate.

Children's Guidelines

It is C.A.D.O. intention to adhere to the Children's Advertising Review Unit's (CARU) guidelines. C.A.D.O. encourages parents to monitor their children's Internet usage, and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information on this site or any other without permission. We care about children and understand that they have special privacy needs. Therefore, we have adopted the following privacy policy regarding children: We will NOT collect, use, or distribute to third parties personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent. We will NOT give the child access to unmonitored chat rooms, message boards, email accounts, or other services that would give the child the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent.

When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we will only use the online contact information (such as email) to:
Respond directly to the child's request on a one-time basis and not use that information to re-contact the child for other purposes. Request the name or online contact information of a parent for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification. Respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (such as in the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription) and not used to re-contact the child for other purposes. We will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity

We will NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
We will provide the parent a description of the specific types of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request. We will allow the parent to refuse further use or future online collection of personally identifiable information and provide a way for a parent to obtain any personally identifiable information collected from their child.
We will provide notice to children in age appropriate terms of what personally identifiable information is to be collected.
We will NOT provide any links to web sites that are unsuitable for children.

We will encourage children to get their parent's permission before sharing personal information online.
