Does this web site collect personal information from children under the age of 13?
No, teach2talks’ web site does not collect personal information from children under the age of 13. Our web site is directed to adults who are interested in enhancing the play and learning experiences of their own children or their clients who are children. The design, content and language of our web site therefore are designed for an adult audience.
What information does teach2talk’s web site collect, and how does the site collect it?
Information You Provide
Information Collected from You with Technology
Our website uses information collected through technology to make our site more interesting and useful to you. In some circumstances, it may not be readily apparent to you that such information is being collected. For instance, when you come to our site, your IP address is collected. An IP address is often associated with the portal through which you enter the Internet, like your ISP (Internet service provider), your company, or your university. Standing alone, your IP address is not personally identifiable.
At times we also store information regarding the frequency with which our visitors visit various parts of our site and where on our site they visit. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information to identify a visitor in order to provide relevant content, ads, and e–mails to that visitor, as well as to enforce compliance with our Terms of Service, and to protect our service, site, visitors, and other parties.
What Are Cookies, and How Do We Use Them?
Third-Party Web Beacons
We use third-party web beacons from Yahoo! to help analyze where visitors go and what they do while visiting our website. Yahoo! may also use anonymous information about your visits to this and other websites in order to improve its products and services and provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by Yahoo!, click here.
How does teach2talk use the personally identifiable information about me that it has collected?
Does teach2talk share information with companies or other organizations?
We will share your information or send you messages on behalf of another company as described below.
Companies That Are “Standing in the Shoes” of Teach2Talk
Sometimes we hire companies to help us deliver products or services, like a shipping company that delivers a package or a company that helps us fulfill prizes for a sweepstakes or a contest. In those instances, we need to share your information with these companies. Sometimes we also work with other companies who assist us in gathering your information in order to enable us to provide you products and services. All of these companies are basically “standing in the shoes” of teach2talk — they are acting as extensions of us with respect to gathering and using your information — and they are allowed to use your information only for delivery of the product or service.
Companies Offering Promotions, Products, or Services
Third-Party Advertisers and Network Advertisers
In addition, many business advertisements are managed and placed on our site by third-party companies. These companies are called “network advertisers.” Network advertisers collect non-personally identifiable information when you click on or move your cursor over one of their banner advertisements. You may not realize it’s being collected. The network advertisers collect this information so that they can show you ads that are more relevant and interesting to you. If you would like to read more about network advertisers or do not want network advertisers to collect this non-personally identifiable information about you, click here.

Disclosures Required By Law and Disclosures to Help Protect the Security and Safety of Our Visitors and Our Website
We will disclose personal information as required by law, including, for example, to comply with a court order or subpoena. We may also disclose personal information in order to enforce our Terms of Service, our site and game rules, and to protect the safety and security of our sites, ourselves and others.
What choices do I have about teach2talk collecting, using, and sharing my information?
It is possible for you to use our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. As mentioned above, there are also ways to limit the information collected through technology, though some of the features of our website won’t work if you decide to do this.
After the effective date of this policy, when you choose to register with us or give us personally identifiable information, you will have an opportunity at the time we collect your information (1) to limit communications from us and our third-party sponsors, and (2) to request that we not share your information with any of our third–party partners.
In addition, you can request at any time that we not send future promotional communications to you either by unsubscribing from the communication (with respect to email communications) or by e–mailing firstname.lastname@example.org and stating your request (with respect to both e–mail and postal mail communications). Please be advised, however, that it may require up to 45 days to fully implement your request.
What type of security does teach2talk provide to visitors of this website?
The importance of security for all personally identifiable information associated with our visitors is of utmost concern to us. We take technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect all visitors’ information. When you provide credit card information, our e-commerce partner Yahoo! uses secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect it. There are some things that you can do to help protect the security of your information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access all of your account information. Also, remember to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you finish surfing the web, so that other people using the same computer won’t have access to your information.

In addition to gathering this type of personally identifiable information on our web site, we may collect this type of information through other means, such as by telephone, mail or transactions in person at conferences and other locations. We may use this information in a variety of ways. For instance, we may use this information to send you promotional materials. We also may use this information for purposes other than sending you promotional materials. For example, we may use this information to process orders requested by you, or to respond to you if you contact us for help. In each instance, our collection, use and sharing of this information will be in accordance with all applicable laws.
