Children and Our Privacy Policy

We do not knowingly collect Personally Identifiable Information from Children on this Site either directly or passively except when a Child may voluntarily submit such information through a “Contact Us” link on a Kickboard Website or a public posting area on a Kickboard Website, if such feature is available. If a Child e-mails us via a “Contact Us” link and we can identify the sender as a Child, any Personally Identifiable Information submitted will only be used to respond on a one-time basis to such Child. In addition, if we have actual knowledge that a Child is sending or posting Personally Identifiable Information on any area of this Site, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete such Personally Identifiable Information before it is made public.

We may also disclose a Child’s Personally Identifiable Information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

Non-personal User Information

An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Internet. When you request pages from Kickboard websites, our servers log your computer’s IP address. Kickboard collects these IP addresses for the sole purpose of identifying our users’ service providers (whether AOL, MSN, etc.) so we can better develop our offerings at the Kickboard websites. We do not automatically link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, however we can and will use IP addresses to identify users when we feel it is necessary to: (1) comply with the law or comply with legal process served on Kickboard; (2) protect and defend the rights or property of Kickboard; (3) protect the personal safety of other Kickboard websites users or the public; or (4) to ensure compliance with our Terms of Use, including the Terms of Use for the Kickboard Corporate Websites and the Terms of Use for the Kickboard Customer Websites.

Cookies

Kickboard Websites use “cookies” to obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses a Kickboard Website, Cookies are textual identifiers that our systems transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable the Kickboard Website to recognize your browser, and to optimize and sometimes customize your use of our Site.

It is your choice, but cookies allow you to take full advantage of Kickboard Website features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

We do not use cookies to get users’ Personally Identifiable Information before a user registers with a Kickboard Website and affirmatively opts-in. Once a user opts-in and provides personal information for purposes of receiving more information from us, we do collect and use that information obtained through the cookie technology for purposes of marketing to you, in accordance with this policy. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other marketing communications from us, you can opt out of further marketing to the addresses you have provided.
