What information does Cepia collect from me?
Cepia collects information in several ways. For example, we collect some personal information when you register as a user using our registration page. During registration, we ask for your name, age, gender and e mail address. If you are under the age of 13, we will also collect the name and e-mail address of your parent or guardian. Your profile information will not be viewable by the public or other users, except your parent or guardian. Once you register and set up an account, you are able to take full advantage of the website and our services. In addition to registration, we may ask you for information at other times, such as when you report a problem with our site or services, or contact Cepia on the website. If you contact Cepia, we may keep a record of that correspondence. If you believe that any inaccurate information has been obtained or provided through the use of this website, you should contact a representative of Cepia at email@example.com.
How does Cepia use the information?
Our main goal in collecting information is to provide you with the best possible experience on the site. For example, by using the information we collect, we can provide you with information about Cepia® products and where to buy them, and allow you to track your collection, view videos associated with Cepia® products and participate in fun online games and activities. We will also use your personal information to notify you of other products available from Cepia and our affiliates.
Who is collecting information?
With whom does Cepia share my information?
We will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. These are some of the ways that your information may be disclosed:
Data in the Aggregate: We may disclose “blinded” aggregated data and user statistics to prospective partners and other third parties. Blinded data is data which does not identify an individual person.
Other: We also may disclose your information in special cases. For example, when we believe that we must disclose information to identify or contact someone may be causing injury to or interference with other website users or customers, or anyone else that may be harmed by such activities. We may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
How can I control my personal information?
We offer our customers choices for the collection, use and sharing of personal information. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to view or delete your personal information from our database, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
What security precautions are in place to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of my information?
Your Cepia Profile is password-protected so only you and your parent or guardian have access to this personal information. Because information sent through the Internet travels from computer to computer throughout the world, when you give us information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Except as specifically stated, this site does not use security encryption measures. Information that you disclose by use of this site (as with any site that is non-secure), by posting a message or using e mail, potentially could be collected and used by others. This may result in unsolicited messages from third parties or use of such information by third parties for their own purposes, legal or illegal. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to us or from our services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems.
To ensure that you will not receive recurring marketing information from us unless you choose to, we will provide you with simple instructions on each newsletter and marketing email from Cepia for you to let us know that you have chosen to stop receiving such emails from us.
What else should I know about my privacy?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose information online, that information may be viewed by other users. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online.
Special Privacy Provisions for Children Under 13
We carefully follow the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). COPPA requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information that we receive from children under 13 years of age. We must obtain the consent of parents and guardians in order for children under 13 years of age to use certain website features. The following is an explanation of our practices with respect to children under the age of 13 (“Children”) and our verifiable parental consent process for parents or guardians of Children (“Parents”).
What types of personal information do we collect about Children?
Children can use publicly available portions of our website without disclosing any personal information. However, to become a member, we do need to collect personal information.
