The Effective Date of this Privacy Policy is set forth at the top of this webpage. KID reserves the right at any time and without notice to change this Privacy Policy simply by posting such changes on our Site.

Legal disclaimer:

The KID Design Safety Toolkit program is for informational purposes only.  The information in this program does not, and is not intended to, constitute legal advice; instead, all information, content, and materials available through this program are for general informational purposes only. KID does not assume any liability for any products designed, manufactured or sold by any third party.  By viewing this program, you agree that you will not seek to hold KID liable under any theory at law or in equity, for anything related directly or indirectly to the content of this program.  You further release KID and each of its employees, agents, affiliates, directors, officers, or anyone acting on its behalf from any and all claims, damages, or liability related in any way to the content of this program. 

What information we collect and how we use that information:

Our registration and donation forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, address, email address, and other information. Information such as location and other information may be used for internal analytics and reports. Donations made by credit or debit card are handled by a third-party payment services provider. We do not store sensitive information from our visitors such as credit card numbers.

What information is disclosed:

We do not sell, rent, or license to third parties any of the personal information that you provide to us through our website, or authorize any of our suppliers to sell or rent any such personal information, and we do not authorize any of our suppliers to make independent use of your personal information for their own purposes, including but not limited to direct marketing.

We may disclose personal information in limited situations, including a sale or merger with a third party or another business, in which case personal information may be disclosed to our advisers and any prospective purchasers’ or merger partner’s advisers, and may ultimately be passed on to the new owners.

Your information may be shared with service providers. Among other things service providers may help us to administer our website and digital infrastructure, communicate through emails, conduct surveys, provide technical support, process payments, and fraud prevention.

Use of “cookies”:

Our Site may use cookies to enhance your experience while using our Site. Cookies are pieces of information that some websites transfer to the computer that is browsing that website and are used for record-keeping purposes at many websites. Use of cookies makes web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, your personal preferences regarding your use of the particular website and to make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Site will not function properly when you view them.

Online tracking:

We do not currently recognize automated browser signals regarding tracking mechanisms, which may include “Do Not Track” instructions.

Internet Protocol Address:

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Security:

All information provided to KID is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. Unfortunately, however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information.

Children’s privacy:

We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 years to use such personal information for direct marketing purposes. This Site is directed to persons who are at least 13 years of age. If a parent or guardian is made aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personal information through any point of contact, we ask to be contacted here and we will delete the information about the child referenced from our files.

Other websites:

Our Site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website for which KID has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.

Changes to this privacy policy:

There may be occasions when we will need to update this privacy policy to reflect new initiatives, changes in the law or technology or changes in our practices regarding the collection and use of your personal information. We will notify you of changes to our privacy policy by posting the revised policy on this website.
