HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
When you browse the Reading Boosters Website, you do so anonymously. Personal information—including your e-mail address—is not collected. However, there are three (3) ways in which the Reading Boosters Website may collect information about you.
1. Reading Boosters Website may request that you voluntarily provide personal information for purposes such as correspondence, site registration, or making a purchase. Information that we ask you to provide may include your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and mailing address. Your personal information is secured via SSL (Secured Socket Layer) Technology.
3. Each time the Reading Boosters Website page is requested from your browser, we log your computer's IP address into our log files. Your computer has been pre-assigned a 12-digit number from your Internet Service Provider and may be static or dynamically assigned—this number is the IP address. Reading Boosters uses IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track movements on the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to any other personally identifiable information by Reading Boosters.
THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We collect only information that is needed, and we tell customers how we use it. We limit the collection of information about our customers to what we need to know to provide customer service, to offer new services, and to fulfill any legal and regulatory requirements. We tell our customers about the general uses of information we collect about them, and we will provide additional explanation if requested. A customer may change, update or add additional information about themselves at any time by contacting Reading Boosters.
Access to customer information is limited to those who specifically need it to conduct their business responsibilities. We use security techniques designed to protect our customer information—especially information that is used by independent contractors and business partners to fulfill customer services. In addition to providing customers with the opportunity to refuse marketing offers, we release information only at the customers' requests, or when required to do so by law or other regulatory authority. When a court order or subpoena requires us to release information, we notify the customer directly so that his/her legal rights can be exercised, if appropriate. The only exceptions to this policy are when we are prohibited by court order or law from notifying the customer, or cases in which fraud and/or criminal activity is suspected. Finally, each Reading Boosters independent contractor is personally responsible for maintaining customer confidentiality. All Reading Boosters independent contractors are required to sign an agreement that they will comply with these policies. Independent contractors who violate these policies are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of services. Independent contractors are expected to report violations—and may do so confidentially—to their managers or other supervisors.
USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
As a result of providing your personal information to us, Reading Boosters can provide a more customized online experience, making your interaction with us more productive and helpful, and will enhance the services we bring to you. If you provide us with your e-mail address, or have done so in the past, we may send you e-mail offers or newsletters. These offers or newsletters are based on information you provided. These e-mail offers will come from Reading Boosters only. Your information or email address is never sold to a third party. All offers are carefully developed to guarantee that they meet our standards. Our goal is to target offers to customers who will find them of value. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these communications from us by simply replying to the e-mail address included in every e-mail message that you receive from Reading Boosters.
PROTECTING THE PRIVACY OF CHILDREN
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. The Reading Boosters Website, though established to provide services for children, is not directed at children under the age of 13 and we will not knowingly allow anyone under 13 to provide us any personal identifying information. If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide any information about yourself to the Reading Boosters Website.
Third-party Internet sites and services accessible through the Reading Boosters Website have separate privacy and information collection practices, independent of us. Reading Boosters has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. While we aim to protect your personal information, Reading Boosters cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
While Reading Boosters puts forth our best efforts in adhering to these minimum privacy standards, additional restrictions may be imposed to comply with state and local laws, and/or station-specific programs, products and services.
