Privacy Notice

At TJSKIDS.COM, we recognize the importance of privacy to visitors of our Web site.

This privacy policy explains what type of information is collected from you when you visit our Web site and how that information may be used.

Gathering of Information
TJSKIDS.COM collects personally-identifying information (such as your name, e-mail address, address, telephone number and/or credit card information) from the TJSKIDS.COM Web site only if you choose to provide that information to us.

TJSKIDS.COM asks visitors to provide certain personal information when they make a purchase from the TJSKIDS.COM Online Shop and when they complete a contact form. TJSKIDS.COM also may ask visitors to provide personal information in other limited circumstances specified at the time the information is gathered.

Like all other Web servers, Our Web server automatically creates log files for each visitor who accesses our site. These "access logs" allow us to make our site more useful to our visitors. The access logs do NOT record a visitor's name, address, phone number, credit card numbers, or any other personally-identifying information. Rather, they contain some or all of the following information:

  • The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine which accessed our Web site.
  • The date of the visit.
  • The time of the visit.
  • The path taken through our Web site.
  • The browser being used.
  • A list of files downloaded or viewed.
  • The amount of time spent listening to RealAudio or Windows Media files.
  • Any errors encountered.

TJSKIDS.COM also uses cookies to collect information. A cookie is a string of characters that can be written to a file on the user's hard drive when the user visits a Web site. Only the Web site that set the cookie can read it, and it can only be used as a record keeping device to store information that the site already has. It cannot, for example, be used to read other information from the user's hard drive.

TJSKIDS.COM uses cookies to track users' activity through the site in order to improve the site's architecture, to offer the user interactive features that would not be possible without them, and to recall specific information to save the user time during subsequent visits to the site. The TJSKIDS.COM Online Shop and other interactive features use cookies. If you wish to prevent cookies from being set to your hard drive you may disable them in your browser's preferences, although you will no longer be able to access these interactive features.

Use of Information
The use of personally-identifying information is limited to the following: responding to user e-mails; fulfillment of TJSKIDS.COM Online Orders and other purposes specified at the time the information is gathered.

Personally-identifying information collected by TJSKIDS.COM is not provided to outside parties.

TJSKIDS.COM also may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or if it believes that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law or with legal process, (b) protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the TJSKIDS.COM Web site, or (c) protect the personal safety or property of TJSKIDS.COM Web site users, the public or TJSKIDS.COM and its employees.

TJSKIDS.COM uses non-identifying aggregate information to analyze use of and better design the TJSKIDS.COM Web site and to share with third parties in aggregate form only as appropriate. For example, we may tell a third party that a certain number of users accessed a particular page on our Web site. However, we will not disclose any information that could be used to identify those users.

TJSKIDS.COM has in place what we believe to be appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Credit card information provided to the TJSKIDS.COM Online Shop is protected against unauthorized use by 128-bit encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security features, which scramble your personal information so that only your web browser and our Web site's server can decipher it.

Under 13: You must be at least 13 years old in order to place an order on the TJSKIDS.COM Online Shop. If you are under 13 years of age, please do not send any information about yourself, including your name, address or e-mail address. If we discover that we have collected any personally-identifying information from a child under the age of 13, we will remove that information from our database as soon as possible.

13 -18: Unless otherwise specified, visitors between the ages of 13 and 18 must obtain permission from their parents or guardians before placing an order on the TJSKIDS.COM Online Shop, or otherwise sending any personally-identifying information.

Corrections to Personal Data; Opting Out
Please write to [email protected] to a) correct or update any personal information in the TJSKIDS.COM database that you state is erroneous, b) request TJSKIDS.COM to make reasonable efforts to remove your personal information from the TJSKIDS.COM Online database. The user understands that it may be impossible to delete personal information entirely because of backups and records of deletions.

Acceptance of Privacy Policy Terms
TJSKIDS.COM reserves the right to change this policy. Any changes to this policy will be posted to this page as soon as reasonably possible, so please check this page periodically. Use of the TJSKIDS.COM Web site constitutes consent to any policy then in effect.
