Please read this Policy carefully. By using the Site or Services, you agree to the practices described in this Policy. If you do not agree to the Policy, you may not use the Site or the Services.
This Site is controlled, operated, and administered by HopSkip from its offices within the United States. If you are accessing the Site from a location outside the United States, you acknowledge and consent to the collection, storage, processing, and transfer of your information to our facilities in the United States and to those third parties with whom we share it, as described in this Policy. Please be aware that the data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located.
HopSkip collects personally identifiable information (“PII”) from our users at several different points on our Site.
We may on occasion supplement the PII you submitted to us with information from third party sources.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, device identifiers, date and time of your visit, geography, and clickstream data. If we link log data to PII, we will treat the combined information as PII.
We use the PII that we collect in the following ways:
We use Log Data in the following ways:
We reserve the right to share information, including PII, with third parties, as described below:
We may share aggregated demographic information about our user base with our business partners and advertisers. This information does not identify individual users.
The Site is not currently configured to respond to Do Not Track signals.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes. We use session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser and makes it easier for you to navigate our Site. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time and allows us to store your passwords, so you don’t have to enter it more than once, and enables us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site. You may be able to remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser’s “help” file.
If you reject cookies, you may still use our Site, but your ability to use some areas of our Site, could be limited.
One of the service providers that we use is Google Analytics, which is a web analysis service provided by Google. Google utilizes the data collected from cookies to track and examine the use of our Site and may share this data with other Google services. You can learn more about how Google uses and shares information and about any choices you may have with regards to your information by visiting their website at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
Clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons / web bugs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of our users. We employ this technology to help us better manage content on our Site by informing us what content is the most effective. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on webpages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ PII.
We may also use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications with you.
This Site contains links to third-party websites that are not owned or controlled by HopSkip. Please be aware that HopSkip is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. This Policy applies only to information collected on this Site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects PII.
Under California Civil Code Section 1798.83 (known as the "Shine the Light" law), if you reside in California and have an established business relationship with us, you have the right to request information about our disclosures of certain categories of your personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes. You may request such information by emailing us at: [insert email address]. All requests must be labeled “Your California Privacy Rights” in the email subject line. We will respond to your request within thirty (30) days of receipt with a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to certain third parties for direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of those third parties. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve the right not to respond to requests that are incomplete or improperly labeled.
Our Site is not intended for use by children. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected information about a child under 13, we will take immediate steps to delete any such personal information.
The security of your information is important to us. Although we follow generally accepted industry standards to protect your information, please be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
If we decide to change this Policy, we will post those changes to our Site. We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you by email or by a conspicuous notice on our Site. Any modifications to the Policy will go into immediate effect after they have been posted to the Site. Your continued use of the Site or Services after we post any changes constitutes your consent to the updated Policy.
