Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting In Our Operations. Celebrate may share your PII under confidentiality agreements with other companies that work with, or on behalf of, Celebrate, to provide products and services. These companies may use your PII to assist Celebrate in its operations. These companies do not, however, have any independent right to share this information.
Disclosures Under Special Circumstances. We may disclose your PII to respond to subpoenas, court orders, legal process or governmental regulations, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. We may also disclose your PII if we believe it is necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.
AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION AND ANONYMOUS INFORMATION
Each time a visitor comes to the Website, Celebrate collects some information to improve the overall quality of the visitor’s online experience.
Aggregated Data. Celebrate collects aggregated queries for internal reporting and also counts, tracks, and aggregates the visitor’s activity into Celebrate’s analysis of general traffic-flow at the Website. Celebrate may also remove personal identifiers from PII and maintain it in aggregated form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Celebrate may share, publicly or privately, anonymized or aggregated information from the Website. If Celebrate shares aggregated information, it will do so in a manner that no individual can be identified.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses. An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer/device you have used to access the Internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your Internet Service Provider. Celebrate may use IP addresses to conduct website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website.
Cookies and Web Beacons. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to a user’s computer for purposes of storing information about a user’s preferences.
Celebrate takes measures it believes are reasonably designed to protect the PII it receives from you from unauthorized access, use and alteration. We believe, however, that a persistent attacker with sufficient resources would be able to defeat our security measures. Therefore, we provide no guarantee that your PII will remain secure.
RESPONSE TO “DO NOT TRACK” SIGNALS
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, Celebrate does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
CHILDREN’S PRIVACY PROTECTION
Under Age 13
Celebrate understands the importance of protecting children’s privacy in the interactive online world. The Website is not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children 13 years of age or younger. It is not our policy to intentionally collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13. No one under the age of 13 should submit any PII to Celebrate and/or the Website, and if we learn that we have collected or received PII from a child under 13, we will delete that information. If your child has sent us personal information and you would like it removed, please send an e-mail to hello@celebrateEDU.org requesting removal.
Under Age 18
Minors under 18 years of age may have the PII that they have provided to Celebrate through the Website deleted by sending an e-mail to hello@celebrateEDU.org requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your PII does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of PII to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, you may contact us by e-mail at hello@celebrateEDU.org.
