Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

Purpose of this Privacy Policy
This privacy policy describes how Little Angels,  LLC treats the personally identifiable information that is collected about you when you visit the websites, mobile-optimized versions of the web site (the websites collectively referred to as “Sites”), and digital applications (“Apps”) to which this policy is linked. The Sites are intended as a resource for adults to obtain information about our Little Angels lines of videos, books and other products. You must be over the age of thirteen to use our Sites.
Our Apps are intended for children ages 3 to 11;   however, the App must be purchased by persons thirteen years of age or older. As described below, we collect information about children’s usage of our apps on an anonymous basis, solely for internal use and to understand user preferences so that we may continue to offer products and content that is valuable and entertaining to our audience. Your purchase of an App constitutes your consent to our collection of this user information.

What is Personally Identifiable Information
“Personally identifiable information” is information that we can use to identify you as an
individual. Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, telephone
number and any other information that is connected with you personally.

Collection of Personally Identifiable Information on the Sites
Little Angels generally collects personally identifiable information on the Sites with your specific knowledge and consent.  For instance, when you sign up to receive our newsletter, make a purchase, or contact us for comments, you may be asked to provide information such as your e-mail address and name. Information such as your age, gender, hobbies or interests may also be requested.  This information may sometimes be collected by third party service providers with whom Little Angels contracts to host the web site or to fulfill requests for services; in that event, Little Angels asks such service providers to make the personal information available only to Little Angels for Little Angels to use in accordance with the terms of this policy and not to use the information for any other purpose. Little Angels uses this information to provide you with the service you have requested.  We might also send out e-mails to you to announce special offers, services and announcements from our site.  
We may use cookies or “clear GIFs” (aka “web beacons” or “pixel tags”) or similar technologies, in the Sites and in our communications with you to enable us to know whether you have visited a web page or received a message.  A clear GIF is typically a one-pixel, transparent image (although it can be a visible image as well), located on a web page or in an e-mail or other type of message, which is retrieved from a remote site on the Internet enabling the verification of an individual’s viewing or receipt of a web page or message.  A clear gif may enable us to relate your viewing or receipt of a web page or message to other information about you, including your personal information.
We may combine personal information that you provide to us online with outside records to enhance our ability to market products or provide services that we believe may be of interest to you. Additionally, we may share your personal information with third parties who may choose to contact you to promote their own goods and services. If you want us to stop sharing your email address with third parties in this way, click here tayres@hearst.com or let us know at 300 E 57th Street, New York, NY 10019. If you do not wish us to share information with companies who would otherwise contact you at your mailing address, you may notify us in writing by sending a notice to 300 E 57th Street, New York, NY 10019 or contacting us at tayres@hearst.com.
We also partner with third-party e-tailers who sell our branded products. When you link to such a third-party site, the e-commerce transaction will take place on that site, and will be governed by the terms of that site’s privacy policy. Those third parties may share information about the purchases you make with us so that we may understand our users’ preferences and use that information to better optimize our Sites.
In the unlikely event that we believe that the security of your personal information in our possession or control may have been compromised, we may seek to notify you of that development.  If a notification is appropriate, we would endeavor to do so as promptly as possible under the circumstances, and, to the extent we have your e-mail address, we may notify you by e-mail.
In addition to the foregoing, Little Angels may share or disclose personally identifiable information about you to other companies or individuals when:

 

Cookies and Analytical Tools
Little Angels (or third party service providers on our behalf) may set and access cookies and similar technologies on your computer. A cookie is a small amount of data (often including a unique identifier), that is sent to your browser from a web site’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Some of our cookies may be local shared objects, also known as Flash cookies. Little Angels uses cookies to understand the usage of our Sites and to improve the content and offerings on our Sites.

We may use cookies and other analytical tools to track usage patterns on the Sites, to deliver editorial content, to record requests for newsletters and to personalize information.
Our cookies may contain personally identifiable information and such cookies may be shared with others to the same extent indicated above.
Little Angels (or third party service providers on our behalf) may also use cookies and other tools to collect aggregate information about web site users on an anonymous basis.  We may share aggregate demographic and usage information with our prospective and actual business partners, advertisers and other third parties for any business purpose.
If you don’t want cookies, most Web browsers include an option that allows you to not accept them. However, if you set your browser to refuse cookies, some portions of our Sites may not function efficiently.  You can manage and delete flash cookies by visiting http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/526/52697ee8.html

 

 

 

 

IP Address
Your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is usually associated with the place from which you enter the Internet, like your Internet Service Provider, your company or your university. Our server may also record the referring page that linked you to us (e.g., another Web site or a search engine); the pages you visit on our Sites, the Web site you visit after our Sites; the ads you see; the ads you click on; other information about the type of Web browser, computer, platform, related software and settings you are using; any search terms you have entered on our Sites or a referral site; and other Web usage activity and data logged by our Web servers.  We may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, gather broad demographic information, and administer our Sites.  We may also link this information with your personal information when we feel that it is necessary to enforce compliance with our rules and policies or terms of service or to protect our Sites, customers or others.

Wireless Addresses
If the email address you provide to us is a wireless email address, you agree to receive messages at such address from Little Angels (unless and until you have elected not to receive such messages by notifying us at______).  You understand that your wireless carrier’s standard rates apply to these messages.  You represent that you are the owner or authorized user of the wireless device on which messages will be received, and that you are authorized to approve the applicable charges.
We may also obtain the date, time and content of your messages in the course of your use of the wireless service.  We will use the information we obtain in connection with these services in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  If fees are charged to your wireless account invoice, we may provide your carrier with your applicable information in connection herewith.  Your wireless carrier and other service providers may also collect data about your wireless device usage, and their practices are governed by their own policies.
You acknowledge and agree that the wireless services are provided via wireless systems which use radios (and other means) to transmit communications over complex networks.  We do not guarantee that your use of such services will be private or secure, and we are not liable to you for any lack of privacy or security you may experience.  You are fully responsible for taking precautions and providing security measures best suited for your situation and intended use of the services.  We may also access the content of your account and wireless account with your carrier for the purpose of identifying and resolving technical problems and service-related complaints.

Information Collected by our Apps
Our Apps will allow for in-app purchase of additional games, videos and other content. You must be over the age of thirteen to make an in-app purchase and will be required to use your app store password for this purpose. At the time you purchase an App, we may ask if you would like to receive our newsletter, in which case we would ask you to provide your email address and name, and we would use that information just as we would if it had been collected on our Sites. As set forth above, you can always ask us to stop sending you the newsletter and to stop sharing your name with marketing partners by contacting us at _____.
Our Apps will use analytics to collect aggregate information about App users on an anonymous basis. For example, we (or our service providers) will collect information about page views, content consumption, user engagement and other usage patterns (collectively “Usage Data”) We use this Usage Data to determine what our users find of interest so that we may improve the content and offerings on our Apps. Since the users of our content will be young children, this Usage Data necessarily includes information about their viewing habits. However, it does NOT include information that would allow the identification of a particular child user.
We may share aggregated Usage Data with our prospective and actual business partners, advertisers and other third parties for any business purpose. Again, this information would not allow those third parties to learn the identity of any particular child user.
