All of us here at Tinawells.com want to make sure that our visitors enjoy the content and activities on the site while still staying and feeling safe. We are aware that some of those that visit Tina’s site are under the age of 13 and thus we want to make sure that we are following the rules.
Specifically, we follow
all regulations laid out by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act
(COPPA), the California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA) and the
Children’s Advertising Review Unit (CARU) of the Council of Better Business
Bureaus. These regulations set out strict parameters regarding placement,
content, and parental consent among other things.
First and foremost, we
want to make it clear to all of you that we do not require any personal
information in order to browse content and take part in the activities
available on Tinawells.com. The only time that we ask for any sort of
information is if visitors wish to sign up for the monthly Tina Wells
newsletter. And in order to add an individual to the subscription list, all we
ask for is a valid email address.
The email addresses that
we collect are stored in a secure database and will never – under any
circumstances – be sold or transferred to third parties or shared with any
individual or organization outside of our staff and contracted partners. We do
not allow and will not authorize any third parties to collect any kind of
personal information. If, for any reason, an individual or his/her parent
wishes to remove his/her email address from our database, it will be suppressed
from all marketing purposes immediately upon receipt of your notification to us
of your wishes. Please notify us by sending an email to: info@Tinawells.com to
remove the email address from our database and stop receiving our newsletters.
Aside from using the
email addresses to send out the Tinawells.com newsletter, they can also
sometimes be used for promotional materials that we believe our customers will
enjoy and use. But, an individual or his/her parent can “opt-out” of any kind
of this use of your email address by emailing us at: info@Tinawells.com.
We only retain the email
addresses for as long as the individual or his/her parent wishes; anyone
(parent or the individual) may “opt-out” at any time by sending us an email to
the above email address. We will never require an individual to disclose more
information than is reasonably necessary to participate in any activity on the
website as a condition of participation. At any time, a parent can access the
child’s information (in this case, the child’s email address) and have it
deleted and removed by emailing us at: info@Tinawells.com.
If there is any reason
for our staff to request any financial information from users, be assured that
it will be transmitted from your computer to our server with encryption
software and only those employees who need access to that information will be
allowed to review it. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security
policies is subject to termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution. Personally
identifiable information is of immense importance to you and, thus, to us as
