We do not collect any personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily provide it to us. While you may use some of the functionality of the Site without registration, some of the activities and services will require you to create an account. If you do not create an account on or through the Site, the only information we collect will be “Non-Personal Information” (i.e., Information that is not traceable back to you and cannot be used to identify you. Non-Personal Information includes information such as the web pages that you have viewed.) through the use of “Cookies” (i.e., Small data files that are stored on the hard drive of a computer used to view web sites that are accessible only by the party or site that placed the Cookie on the hard drive.). If you choose to subscribe or create an account through the Site, we may require you to submit “Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., Information that can be traced back to you or used to identify you. Personally Identifiable Information includes information such as your full name, home address, telephone number and e-mail address). You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information you submit to MyPrincessAcademy.com. Inaccurate information will affect the information you receive when using the Site and tools and our ability to contact you. For example, your e-mail address should be kept current because that is one of the primary means by which we are able to communicate with you.

We will respond to such written requests within 30 days following receipt at the e-mail or mailing address stated above. If we receive your request at a different e-mail or mailing address, we will respond within a reasonable period of time, but not to exceed 90 days from the date received. Please note that we are only required to respond to each customer once per calendar year.
If you do not agree with these terms, do not provide any Personally Identifiable Information to us. If you refuse or withdraw your consent, or if you choose not to provide us with any required Personally Identifiable Information, we may not be able to provide you with products or services that can be offered on the Site only if we have access to certain Personally Identifiable Information.
4. The Information We Gather
My Princess Academy gathers two types of information about users:
4.1. Non-Personal Information
When users come to the Site, we collect and aggregate Non-Personal Information indicating, among other things, which pages of the Site were visited, the order in which they were visited and which hyperlinks were “clicked.” Collecting such information involves the logging of the IP addresses, operating system and browser software used by each user to the Site. Although such information is not Personally Identifiable Information, we can determine from an IP address a user’s Internet Service Provider and the geographic location of his or her point of connectivity.
You should be able to control how and whether Cookies will be accepted by your web browser. Most browsers offer instructions on how to reset the browser to reject Cookies in the "Help" section of the toolbar. If you reject our Cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the Site may not work properly, but you do not have to accept our Cookies in order to productively use the Site.
4.2. Personally Identifiable Information
We collect Personally Identifiable Information that you provide to us when you create an account, make purchases in our online store, subscribe to e-mail updates, participate in contents, sweepstakes and other promotions, or participate in online polls and surveys.
(a) Creating an Account. In order to upgrade your account and enter special codes to access certain parts of the website and to make purchases in our online store, we will require you to create an account with us. During this process, you will need to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information that may include, but may not be limited to, your first and last name, date of birth, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number and password. In addition, if you are a parent creating an account for a child you will need to pick a Nickname for your child to use and your child’s password. The MyPrincessAcademycom website does not condition a child’s participation in an online activity on the child providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary for that activity.
We may also request a nickname and email address when a user submits a form through the “Contact Us” portion of the MyPrincessAcademy.com website so that we may respond to the inquiry.
(b) Making Purchases. When purchasing products or services through the Site, users are required to provide My Princess Academy with Personally Identifiable Information that may include, but may not be limited to, your first and last name, date of birth, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card number and expiration date. My Princess Academy uses this Personally Identifiable Information to process the order, send the product and/or provide the service. If the purchase is a gift, we may also collect information about the recipient, such as name and mailing address.
(c) Subscribing to Updates. You may opt-in to receive updates about the site, special offers, and other e-mail newsletters offered by us. When you select to receive updates, we may ask for your first and last name, e-mail address, age, nickname or password.
(d) Participating In Contests, Sweepstakes and Other Promotions. From time to time, My Princess Academy may offer you the opportunity to participate in a contest, sweepstakes or other promotion through the Site. If you desire to participate in any such contest, sweepstakes or other promotion, you will be asked to provide us with certain information necessary to conduct such contest, sweepstakes or other promotion. This information may include, among other things, your name, age, gender, mailing address, e-mail address and phone number.
(e) Participating in Online Polls and Surveys. My Princess Academy may, from time to time, utilize online polls and/or surveys. If you desire to participate in any such online poll or survey, you may be asked to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information, or you may be asked to provide only information that is not personally identifiable (such as nickname, city or state of residence, age or gender).
5. How We Use (and Do Not Use) the Information We Gather
Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the different ways My Princess Academy uses the information that we gather.
5.1. Non-Personal Information.
My Princess Academy uses Non-Personal Information primarily in aggregate form to build higher quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of our users, and by measuring demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Site.
5.2. Personally Identifiable Information.
(a) Creating an Account. My Princess Academy may use the Personally Identifiable Information that we collect from you when you create an account to contact you in connection with your use of the Site and to track who uses the various features and functionality offered at the Site. Additionally, we may use this information in determining the types of features, functionality, products and services to offer through the Site or otherwise.

My Princess Academy operations and maintenance contractors sometimes have limited access to your Personally Identifiable Information in the course of providing products or services to My Princess Academy. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to better operation and maintenance of the Site. If you have opted-in to receive updates from My Princess Academy, these contractors may also have access to your e-mail address to send newsletters to you on our behalf. Access to your Personally Identifiable Information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary for the contractor to perform its limited function for My Princess Academy. We also contractually require that our operations and maintenance contractors not use or disclose your Personally Identifiable Information for any purpose other than providing us with products and services, and that they secure your Personally Identifiable Information with safeguards equivalent to our own safeguards.
(h) Purchase or Sale of Business.
(i) Government Authorities; Legal Rights and Actions.
6. Children’s Privacy
We are dedicated to safeguarding your children’s privacy. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children under the age of thirteen; and that we obtain parental consent before we allow children under the age of thirteen to use certain features of the Site.
Children can explore the Site, view and print content, and play many games without providing to us any “Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., Information that can be traced back to the child or used to identify the child. Personally Identifiable Information includes information such as full name, home address, telephone number and e-mail address). We do not condition children’s participation in online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary for a child to engage in any particular activity. The only information we collect will be “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (i.e., Information that is not traceable back to the child and cannot be used to identify the child) such as a Nickname, password and birthday.
My Princess Academy requests that children consult with their parents before sending information to the Site. We encourage parents to monitor their children’s online activities, and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never use their full name as their Nickname or provide any other personal information without their parent’s permission.
