Thank you for reviewing my policies regarding any personal information that you may choose to provide at my website. I take your privacy very seriously, and I carefully protect any and all information entrusted to me. I only collect information that helps me serve you better. I do not share your information with anyone else unless you’ve approved of such sharing in advance.
INFORMATION COLLECTED FROM YOU
When you use Hoffkids.com, personal information may be collected from you. Personal information means information that could identify you directly or indirectly, such as your name or email address. When a student creates a user account in one of the areas of Hoffkids.com, Owner may request that he or she create a username and password.
Hoffkids.com contains contact forms where free form entry is permitted. All information is sent directly to Owner and is not shared with anyone. Owner may collect personal information from you when you interact with Hoffkids.com by filling out a form or registering for a user account or participating in a public posting.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS COLLECTED
Hoffkids.com may collect anonymized information from your computer or device such as browser type, operating system, referring pages, pages visited, time spent on a particular page, IP address, and other analytics to help Hoffkids.com run most efficiently. An IP address is a number that is assigned automatically to your computer whenever you use the World Wide Web. Web servers, the big computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. IP addresses are not connected to personal visitor names, and Owner does not know visitor names from an IP address. IP addresses of the visitor are available to Owner when contact forms are filled out.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS USED
Hoffkids.com may use your information to improve the website content, services, and applications that are provided to meet your needs and interests. When you make a donation through this Website, you are providing purchase transaction information to Hoffkids.com through a third party service provider (such as Paypal) who will use the information solely for the purpose of the transaction. There is no advertising on Hoffkids.com and no private information will ever be transferred to any such 3rd party.
When visitors request pages from Hoffkids.com sites, our servers log users’ IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to any personal information. Hoffkids.com may collect IP addresses for system administration. Your IP addresses will be used to identify a user in the following situations: (a) in response to subpoenas, court orders or legal process, to the extent permitted and as restricted by law; (b) when disclosure is required to maintain the security and integrity of this site, or to protect any user’s security or the security of other persons, consistent with applicable laws.

Visitors to Hoffkids.com may have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences (most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies). Cookies make Hoffkids.com easier for you to use because they save your preferences while you are visiting the site (although we do not save passwords in cookies).
