Girls Horse Club is a community for girls who love horses, so allowing them to communicate and participate is essential to our mission. We respect the privacy of children, and do not collect any more personal information than reasonably necessary to enable them to participate in the activities we offer at our Web site.
With respect to our online information collection practices from children under 13 years of age, please note that parents may consent to the above collection and use without necessarily consenting to the disclosure of personal information to third parties.
With respect to the collection by other organizations of personal information from children at our site, we do not have any agreements with outside organizations to collect personal information at our site.
Like most website operators, Girls Horse Club 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. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use this website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of GirlsHorseClub.com.
Girls Horse Club also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Girls Horse Club does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Girls Horse Club choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Girls Horse Club gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Girls Horse Club collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction. We do 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.
Use and Sharing of Information
The information we collect is used to respond to specific requests to participate in activities such as:
- Contests or giveaways
- Voting in polls or otherwise expressing an opinion
- Sending e-cards
- Submitting stories or blogs
- Commenting on the blog
With respect to sharing information, we do not share children's personal information with anyone other than those who provide support for the internal operations of the Web site and our agents (e.g., contractors who provide fulfillment services or technical support to the Web site). All third parties with whom we share information have agreed to maintain security and integrity of personal information.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Girls Horse Club discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Girls Horse Club believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Girls Horse Club, third parties or the public at large.
Parents can review the information that we have collected from their children online, prevent the further use or maintenance of such information, or direct the deletion of their children's personal information by contacting us at the postal or email address below.
