CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

KIDS RANCH is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and to helping parents, guardians, and children have positive experiences on the Internet.

We will never knowingly request personal information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental or guardian consent. With parental or guardian consent, we may collect personal information from children under the age of 13 such as: name, address, email address, account information, and user-generated content. This information allows us to fulfill a requested transaction and facilitate participation in programs, keep records, undertake certain marketing activities (only in accordance with applicable law and any required consents), or to otherwise customize or enhance the website experience for children.

Children under the age of 13 may be able to make certain content, such as user-generated content, visible to others or the public. This could include, for example, a webpage or parts of webpages operated by children that have been designed for group or public viewing. Absent parental consent, however, children under 13 would be allowed to display only limited information such as a first name or unique user name or other information that does not allow for online contacting by third parties.

Regardless of what information is displayed, parents or guardians may revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted from the site by contacting our offices by phone at (608) 393-1037 or via email. To do this or to review personal information collected from children, we must verify the identity of the requesting parent or guardian. When a parent or guardian revokes consent, we will stop collecting, using, processing, or disclosing information from that child. To respect the privacy of parents and guardians, information collected and used for the sole purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice is not maintained in retrievable form by the site if parental or guardian consent is not obtained after a reasonable time.

USE OF COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

Visitors should be aware that personal information and non-personal information and data may be automatically collected by the service providers for the KIDS RANCH site through the use of "cookies" or other similar technologies such as web beacons. "Cookies" are small text files a website can use to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor's ongoing access to and use of the site, and allow a site to track usage behavior and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements. Cookies are not programs that come onto a visitor's system and damage files. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the visitor to deny or accept the cookie feature. "Web beacons" are small snippets of code embedded in webpages typically used to monitor activity on a webpage and transfer or collect information, such as information about your IP address, the website address of the page on which the beacon is located, the browser type that is accessing the site, and the ID number of cookies placed on your computer.

KIDS RANCH service providers use "cookie" technology only to obtain information, including personal information, from the site's online visitors in order to improve visitors' online experiences and facilitate their visits within our site. KIDS RANCH service providers may use web beacons to improve website services, conduct website analytics, suggest first-party advertising relating to us and our sponsors, and to optimize the browsing experience.

Cookies expire after they have fulfilled their purpose. Our website uses cookies that expire when you close your browser (i.e., session cookies) or that expire after a set period of time (i.e., persistent cookies). Cookies that are stored by third parties will have their expiration period determined by the third party, not us.
