This policy applies to the Fun Kids Website at funkidslive.com.
Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation of our site, we gather certain types of information about our users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather and what we do with it.
This policy tells you how we collect information from you on-line, how we protect it and how we use it. Children’s Radio UK Limited controls all personal information which you provide when you use our site.
Information Collected by this Site
We collect two types of personally identifying information from users: personal data (such as names and e-mail addresses), and aggregated data (such as information about traffic patterns on the site, for example how many users log into the site on a daily basis).
Personal data is collected when users provide personal data to the site, for example in registering for electronic newsletters or other membership services, sending email to the site, and registering for competitions. This information may be used for marketing and market research purposes, to provide and personalise our service, to inform you if you are a winner of a competition and what prizes you have won, to send you greetings on your birthday and to send you newsletters and information about other exciting events happening on Fun Kids and about related products and services.
Aggregated information, such as which pages users access or visit and information volunteered by users, such as survey information and/or site registrations, is collected by various methods. For example, we collect IP addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address, and when you request a page from a website, its servers log your IP address. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, you will remain anonymous to the site. We collect IP addresses for the purposes of system administration.
Use of Information Collected by Our Site
Our site uses both the personal and aggregated information collected for multiple purposes.
The information is used to improve the content of the site, to customise the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user and to notify users about updates to the site or promotional offers or opportunities that we believe will be of interest to you.
We will only pass on your information to third parties in the following situations:
- If this was clearly stated at the time of collection or registration and, where required, if you have given permission for this;
- If we employ another organisation to perform tasks on our behalf – such as delivering goods to you. In this case, the organisations may only use your information to fulfil this specific task;
- If we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary for legal proceedings. We may also disclose member information when we believe in good faith that applicable law or regulation requires it.
The principle reason for collecting data about you is to improve the service we offer and to try and ensure you get the most from our services. We may also retain data for security administration, legal, and maintenance purposes. By using the data collected we can provide you with information via e-mail.
Our Policies for Children
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time on-line with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on our site. If you are a child (a person who is not of legal age to give consent to the collection and processing of their data) and want to register with us, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to register, confirm you have permission to register and provide an email address (if you are registering for a service through your computer) for the parent or guardian. We will then send a message to your parent that you have registered on the relevant Site and depending on your age and location may also ask your parent to confirm consent to the registration. We may also carry out checks to verify that the contact details you have provided are for your parent or guardian.
How to remove or amend your information
You can ask us to modify or remove your personal information from any or all of our mailing lists at any time by clicking on the “Register” link or the other relevant link as displayed on the relevant Site.
We will only send electronic messages to you if you have given us express permission to do so. In addition you will also be able to unsubscribe from communications via unsubscribe links in those communications.
You may be given the opportunity to submit information about other people to enable them to receive information on our products or services. You must obtain permission from such other people prior to submitting their information to us. The types of information that are collected about other people include: recipient’s first and last name, phone number, address and e-mail address.
Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that this site contains links to other sites, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as our site. For instance, if you click on an advertisement on the site, this will take you away from the site and to an entirely different site. This can include links from advertisers, content providers and partners who may use the sites’ logo and or style as a result of a co-branding agreement. These sites may send their own cookies to you, and may collect data and make uses of it that this site would not.
