We are committed to making your online transaction safe, secure and confidential to the highest standards available. Following are some relevant facts about how we treat your information
We do not share or sell data. We collect billing and shipping information in order to process your order and deliver it to its destination. This information is used only by PBS KIDS Shop and the couriers we use for the purposes of fulfilling your order. Personal information collected through this site is used only for our internal purposes. We will not sell your personal information, or authorize third parties to use such information for any commercial purpose, without your prior consent.
Personal Information. We do not automatically collect personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or email address. Such information will be collected only if you provide it to us voluntarily in order to order products, enter a contest or promotion, or sign up to receive our eUpdate newsletter. We don't require that any personal information be provided in order to view our website.
Information collected by Shop.PBSKids.org is used to:
- allow you to order products, register for eUpdate and participate in special promotions;
- improve the site by observing products that are most popular; and
- personalize the delivery of information and recommend products to you.
Your personal information may also be used to create statistics about Shop.PBSKids.org that we use to measure our performance. These statistics do not contain any information that could identify you personally. Shop.PBSKids.org does not sell your personal information to any organization for any purpose.
We Do Send E-mail. We will send you email at regular intervals to ensure that you are always kept up to date on the status of your order. From time to time we send additional eflyers out to inform our customers of specials or promotions that they might be interested in. You can choose not to receive the eflyers by selecting this option in your PBS KIDS Shop account.
We Offer Optional Registration. We recommend that you register as a customer in order to take advantage of the many benefits of maintaining an account. Unlike many other sites, registration is not necessary for placing orders. We offer a "buy now" option, which only requires the basic information required to process your order. Please note that this will limit access to your order history and an address book.
Credit Card Info Protected by 128bit SSL Encryption. The security of your personal information is paramount. All Credit Card Transactions are completed using a 128 Bit SSL Encrypted Secure Transaction. As we transmit the information to the Bank's Secure SSL Server, they require a 128-bit transaction and will not process a transaction without one. Even though 40 or 56 Bit transactions are very secure, our Bank's insistence on 128 Bit SSL means that there is never any chance of your information every being intercepted or decoded.
Password Protected Accounts. When you decide to register an account in order to take advantage of the address book, quick pay and order restoration features, your account information is secured by password protection assigned and maintained by you. If you forget your password, this information is only released to your specific email address recorded in your account profile. It is not given out in any other situation without identity verification provided by you. The account information contains the billing and shipping addresses, phone numbers and email address provided and maintained by you as well as your order history. Credit card information is not included in this file.
Getting Your Consent.By using Shop.PBSKids.org you are consenting to the collection and use of personal and account information by PBS KIDS Shop, for the purposes set out in this policy.
PBS KIDS Shop does not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information online from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. If PBS KIDS Shop learns that a child under the age of 13 has submitted personally identifiable information online without parental consent, it will take all reasonable measures to delete such information from its databases and to not use such information for any purpose (except where necessary to protect the safety of the child or others as required or allowed by law). If you become aware of any personally identifiable information we have collected from children under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-888-957-9693.
