To help ensure a rewarding on-line experience for our visitors - and for the parents of our visitors who are children - we provide you with this summary of our information practices.
As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, we may modify our practices from time to time. However, we will treat all personal information we collect in accordance with the privacy notice in effect at the time the information is collected.
At Neo-Addict.Net, we do not collect much personally identifiable information from users 12 years old and younger. However, they must enter a valid email adress to gain access to the Neo-Addict.Net forums. When they enter this email adress they have the option of keeping it private.
Neo-Addict.Net also gives its users the option to voluntarily enter additional information such as their Neopets.com username or their name.
Users can also change their user information supplied upon registration (except for username) on this page: http://forum.backstageneopets.com/usercp.php and follow the directions on this page. It is not a requirement for users to enter their name.
Additionally, when visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable "computer" information, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS X), the user's "IP Address", the web browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer, FireFox) being used, and information regarding the Internet service provider.
We use visitors' personal information for our internal purposes of enabling visitors to chat on our message boards, or to inform users of upcoming events and special announcements.
We sometimes use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect to improve the content and speed of our site. We also may use this information in the aggregate to analyze site usage, as well as to improve services.
We will disclose information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency's or other public agency's (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime.
We will not use or transfer personally identifiable information in ways that are materially different from the ones described above without also providing notification of such practices and obtaining consent for any materially different uses. Additionally, Neo-Addict.Net will never sell information to any third party.
We have put in place appropriate electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect on-line.
Parents, please send an email to the e-mail address provided below if you would like to do any of the following:
* access the personally identifiable information that the
Neo-Addict.Net site has collected on-line from your child,
* correct factual errors in such information,
* request to have this information deleted, or
* request that we no longer collect or maintain further information.
Please be sure to include your e-mail address, mailing address and a telephone number where we can reach you. To protect your child's privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about your child.
The Internet offers a world of opportunity for children. Your guidance and involvement are essential to help ensure that children have a safe and rewarding on-line experience. We encourage you to visit The FTC's kidz privacy Web site(http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/) and explore. Kidz Privacy helps families learn how information flows on-line so they can use the Internet in ways that protect their privacy and well-being. It also contains a number of valuable resources to help parents and children be aware of and express their preferences about information that is collected on-line and how it is used. Your efforts to instill responsible information practices will help steer your children to age-appropriate sites and will go a long way toward ensuring that your children have enriching experiences on-line.
