Additional Statement of Privacy

In short, The Company recognizes the importance of online privacy and does not collect or store personally identifiable information of children under the age of 13. However, although we do not collect information we do receive information from visitors to and the following additional statement of privacy discloses what information we receive and how we use it.

In general, we receive two types of information from users:

  • Personal Information and,
  • Aggregated Information

1. Personal Information in the form of return email addresses when a user sends electronic correspondence to us requesting specific information or to make a comment. If we have no means of verifying the senders age we manage this information as if the sender is under 13. Therefore, we will respond to the sender on a one-time basis in reply to the specific request of that email. In accordance with COPPA, (, any personally identifiable information from these types of requests, such as an email address, will not be maintained by The Company in any retrievable form. If it is necessary for us to retain email information for any purposes we will do so only after stripping it of any personally identifiable information.

2. Aggregated Information about users as a whole. The Company receives certain types of information about general activity at This does not include personal identifying information, but does include how many times is visited, what pages or search terms are requested, what domain names (e.g. "") visitors are coming from and the date and time of each visit. The Company gathers and compiles this information into an aggregate form for statistical analysis and reporting. These reports track website activity overall rather than on an individual level and do not include personally identifiable information.

Because aggregated information does not include personal identifying information, it cannot be used to identify you. We may disclose aggregated data to third parties, such as advertisers, or include it in public records.

Use and Sharing of Information

The personal information you voluntarily provide is used to satisfy your request (e.g. reply to an email). The Company does not sell, trade, or rent your personal information, or disclose personal information except: 1) When the purpose and manner of the disclosure has been disclosed to you prior to you providing the information, or 2) When disclosure is required by law.
