What Data We Collect


Non-Personally Identifiable Information
 

   When a visitor requests information from the Website, we automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information about the request. This information includes the IP address of the computer making the request, the time and date of the request, the type of web browser being used, and, sometimes, the page from which the visitor is coming. The information does not contain the visitor’s name or email address.


   Pudding Stone Publishing analyzes this information to learn about how visitors are using the content of the Website and to allocate resources effectively and improve content.


Personally Identifying Information
 

   In certain situations, we may collect personally identifiable information from you. For example, we may collect our users’ first and last names, shipping address, email address, phone number, and payment information. We may also collect and store users’ order history.  


   Except as specifically stated herein, Pudding Stone Publishing does not share or sell personally identifiable information to other companies. We may use the information you provide for our own internal purposes; for example, to send email announcements of events to users who registered for similar events and to alert users of offers that we believe may interest them. We may also use this information in order to complete transactions that you request, such as to place and fulfill orders, to allow our users to maintain a personal profile on the Website, and to make ordering from the Website faster and easier. Users’ information is completely private. Additionally, Pudding Stone Publishing may choose, on occasion, to include third-party offers in our communications with you. We maintain appropriate and reasonable safeguards to ensure the integrity, security, and privacy of the information in our possession.


   If Pudding Stone Publishing is acquired by another company, that company will take on all responsibility for the personal information we collect and it will assume all rights and obligations with respect to that information. Should this happen, the acquiring company may implement its own policy with respect to your information.


   When directed by a court of law or other government entity, or if we have a good faith basis to believe such action is necessary to comply with the law, we may be obligated to disclose personal information. In such an event, we will comply with the law and make commercially reasonable efforts to notify you, if legal.


   You may opt out of receiving any email announcements when you register for one of our offerings. In addition, our email communications with you will provide a link allowing you to unsubscribe from future correspondence. Please note, however, that unsubscribing will not prevent emails relating to specific purchases that you make on the Website. If a particular registration form or email does not have an unsubscribe option, or if you’d like to be removed from our lists for any reason, notify Pudding Stone Publishing directly by emailing puddingstonepublishing@gmail.com. Please include your name, email address, and the offer for which you were registered so that we can effectively remove you from our lists.

Children’s Privacy

 

   Pudding Stone Publishing recognizes that the privacy of children is of particular importance, and we collect children’s personal information only in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We do not collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without first obtaining verifiable parental consent, unless we use such information only to: (1) obtain parental consent or provide parents with notice; (2) respond directly on a one-time basis to a child’s specific request; (3) respond more than once to a child’s specific request along with providing parental notice of such use; (4) protect the safety of a child; or (5) comply with legal requirements. If information collected from a child under the age of 13 is used in connection with a one-time request, if requested by a parent or guardian, or otherwise to comply with COPPA, Pudding Stone Publishing will delete all such information after such use as soon as commercially practicable. The consent and notification process mentioned above gives parents the ability to let us know if they do not want us to make further use of the personally identifiable information we have collected from their child.


   The only information that we collect from children is their email address and their parent’s email or home address. We may collect such information, only in compliance with COPPA, in connection with our requests for suggestions, and visitors’ requests for free products, services or additional information, so that we can answer questions or requests, and fulfill orders. 


   Unless we indicate otherwise in each circumstance, personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by Pudding Stone Publishing for the purpose for which it was initially collected and only with parental consent. Such information will be deleted at any time upon the request of a parent or guardian. We do not use any information, whether personally identifiable or not, to behaviorally target children.
