Privacy Policy for Kranky Kids®

• Any information we collect is non-personal (such as first name, age, city and state). If you enter a contest, send us a question or send an electronic postcard, we will also ask for an e-mail address. We only collect enough information from our visitors to make activities on Kranky Kids® fun and interesting.

• If you submit stories, music, film, artwork, comments or anything else to us which is posted on our site, you will be identified on our site only by first name, age, city and state.

• If you send us an e-mail with a question or comment, or enter one of our contests, we will write back using your e-mail address, but we will not keep the address or use it again.

• No one will be excluded from our site for not giving us personal information. When we do ask for personal information (like an e-mail address), we will only keep it until that particular activity is complete. We will not share this information with a third party.

• If we know a visitor is under the age of thirteen, we will collect a parent's permission offline (by postal mail, fax or phone) before we mail any prizes, or collect or share personal information with anyone else.

As you surf around, it is possible that several cookies* will be set on your computer. Kranky Kids® uses the information from cookies to deliver relevant local resources, remember browser preferences, and improve our visitors' experiences on the site. No personal information is ever stored in a Kranky Kids cookie, even if you have entered your name or e-mail address on other parts of Kranky Kids Online.

Kranky Kids® does not sell information collected by cookies or use the information for commerce-related purposes. In addition, Kranky Kids will not filter content based on your preferences without permission.

*What's a cookie? A cookie is information a Web site puts on your computer's hard drive so that the site can remember your preferences or which pages you visited on that site.

Kranky Kids® only uses cookies at the following times:

• If you watch a video clip or listen to an audio clip on, a cookie will remember which media player (such as Real Player or QuickTime) and which type of clip (high or low bandwidth) you prefer to use on your computer. You can change your video and audio preferences at any time, or choose a player each time you view or listen to a clip.

• As you explore, a session cookie will tell us which pages you visit and the amount of time between each page visit. This cookie does not remember any information about you or your computer, it just tells us at Kranky Kids® how long visitors spend on our site and which pages receive the most traffic. A “session cookie” only remembers information about your current visit to the site.

We also promise to help families and communities find the information they need to use the Internet safely and responsibly.

• When Kranky Kids® is partially funded by outside sponsors, we will mark any underwriter logos with a “sponsored by” tag. We choose our underwriters carefully, to make sure that the company's products and services fit Kranky Kids® standards. The Kranky Kids® site will not contain advertisements promoting e-commerce for any products other than those created by Kranky Kids®.

• Since we cannot be assured that links to outside sites follow our safety or privacy guidelines, we encourage families to discuss using these links together. We are not responsible for the content or safety and privacy practices at any sites linked from our pages. We keep links to a minimum and essentially maintain a closed site, meaning a site with no outside links.

Your use of this site is conditioned on your having accepted these terms. You should check back to this policy frequently, since it is subject to change from time to time, and your continued use of the site is conditioned upon your acceptance of any modifications hereto.

We want to make this site a place where students, families and educators can learn together and have fun. If you have any comments or questions, we're happy to hear them.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this policy, send us an e-mail at:
