- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.

Childrenz Center operates ChildrenzCenter.org. It is Childrenz Center’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Childrenz Center collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Childrenz Center’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Childrenz Center’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Childrenz Center may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Childrenz Center also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. Childrenz Center only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Childrenz Center’ website choose to interact with Childrenz Center in ways that require Childrenz Center to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Childrenz Center gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with Childrenz Center are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Childrenz Center collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Childrenz Center. Childrenz Center does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Childrenz Center may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Childrenz Center may monitor the most popular posts on ChildrenzCenter.org and any linked blogs or Websites; and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Childrenz Center does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Childrenz Center discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Childrenz Center’s behalf or to provide services available at Childrenz Center’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Childrenz Center will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Childrenz Center discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Childrenz Center believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Childrenz Center, third parties or the public at large. Childrenz Center takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Childrenz Center, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Childrenz Center goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Childrenz Center may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
