We will routinely update this Privacy Policy to clarify our practices and to reflect new or different privacy practices, such as when we add new services, functionality or features to the website.

I. THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We collect only personal information that is relevant and necessary to the purpose of our website. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We collect the following types of information from our users:

A. Personally Identifiable Information Collected from Individuals

We receive and store any information you enter on our website from other third-party services that you link to your account (including, but not limited to Facebook and Google), or provide to us in any other way, including by e-mail. When you send an e-mail to us, we may retain your e-mail address and the contents of the e-mail you send.  

B. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

From time to time, we may ask you to provide us with non-personally identifiable information, that is, data that is not intended to allow us to identify you personally, such as a vote for a particular vendor. This information may be aggregated and used for our internal purposes or for creating reports for third-party advertisers and partners, or otherwise shared with third parties for any lawful purpose, without your permission. No third party is intended to be able to know who you are as a result of the use of this information.

We also may automatically collect website usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of users to the site, pages visited and similar data. Site usage information may be collected and aggregated in such a way so as to assign users unique identifiers, which unique identifiers may be used to track users’ usage of the website across different devices and platforms. Such unique identifier shall not include personally identifiable information, nor can it be used to obtain personally identifiable information. This data is used in the aggregate, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that is intended to identify you or your device personally. Aggregate information generally is collected through the use of cookies and web beacons as discussed below. This aggregate information helps us determine general usage patterns and modify the website in order to improve your experience. This type of aggregate information may be shared with third parties at any time.

In addition to our use of services as described herein, we may permit certain third-party companies to help us tailor advertising that we think may be of interest to you based on your use of the services and to otherwise collect and use data about your use of the services.

C. Passive Gathering of Information Electronically

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the website or the services. Nelson Kids and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain “traffic data” on their server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookie and web beacon information, and the page you requested. Nelson Kids uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website and the services.
Nelson Kids may take and, on any page, display a count of the total number of times that page has been viewed.

I. HOW WE USE INFORMATION

When you provide us with your information, we may use such information for a number of purposes, including:

* To facilitate communication between Nelson Kids and you including, without limitation, responding to your questions or comments, sending e-mails concerning our services, or to contact you for feedback regarding us, our advertisers or our business partners;

* To customize, analyze, adjust and improve the website to meet our, your, or our business partners’ needs and expectations, including, but not limited to, sharing non-personally identifiable information with Google for the purposes of implementing certain analytic functionality;
* To enforce our agreements with you, prevent fraud and other prohibited or illegal activities, for other legally permissible purposes and generally to ensure that we comply with applicable laws; and/or

II. ACCESSING OR CHANGING YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

You can request to have your data removed from our collection, or have it updated at any time.

III. DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES

Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your Personal Identifiable Information to anyone and that we will share your Personal Identifiable Information only as described below.

A. Fulfilment of Services

We may retain other companies and individuals to perform certain functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to, companies and individuals who (i) deliver products or services; or (ii) provide customer support, web hosting, internet service, and data analysis. Such third parties may be provided with access to information needed to perform their functions but may not use such information for any other purpose.

B. Protection of Nelson Kids and Others

We may release Personal Identifiable Information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Nelson Kids, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

C. Business Transfers

In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Nelson Kids, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets transferred.

D. Nelson Kids Personnel

Nelson Kids personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to Personal Identifiable Information, where such access is necessary in the normal course of Nelson Kids’ business.

Please read over those rules and policies before proceeding to interact with such other website.

B. Data Security

We maintain a variety of commercially reasonable safeguards designed to protect your Personal Identifiable Information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, we use industry accepted tools and techniques to protect against unauthorized access to our systems.

You should be aware, however, that Nelson Kids has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit, even where such other site is linked to our website. If you share your computer or use a computer that is accessed by the general public, remember to sign off and close your browser window when you have finished your session. This will help to ensure that others cannot access your information.

We want you to feel confident using the website. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take commercially reasonable steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your information, searches or other communications always will remain secure. In the event of a breach of the confidentiality or security of your information, we will notify you if reasonably possible and as reasonably necessary so that you can take appropriate protective steps. We may notify you under such circumstances using the e-mail address(es) we have on record for you. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your information.
