Privacy Policy for Kids Under 13 (and Their Parents)

Welcome,

It is Autumn Jade's policy to not only respect and protect the safety and privacy of visitors to our web site, but, when able and appropriate, to take action to safeguard their well-being.

We would like visitors to know that personal information from the Autumn Jade site is not sold or otherwise provided to anyone else. And, as you'll see, there are no advertisers on this site. As a safety measure, the information requested in the Ask Autumn section is kept to the minimum that we need to give a reasonably personal response. For example, there is no "registration" process. Last names, street addresses and phone numbers are *not* requested and, indeed, are actively discouraged. Including an email address is completely optional. As well, Autumn Jade Publishing strongly recommends that kids check with an adult first before giving out *any* information on *any* website, including ours.

Questions and Feedback. As you look at our site, you might decide to use our feedback page to give us advice about what you think we are doing well, or what you think we can do to make this website even better. If you want to give us feedback, you may do so without telling us anything about yourself. But, if you ask a question and would like us to respond, you will need to give us your email address. We will use your email address ONLY to respond to the question or feedback that you sent to us, and then we will throw your email address away.

Cookies and Other Electronic Footprints. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies are *not* used by the Autumn Jade web site.

When you are surfing the different pages on our website, your electronic footprints allow our computer to identify your computer using its IP address. Using the IP address, our computer gathers certain information such as which pages you visited and how long you stayed. But NONE of this information gives us access to your name, where you live, your email or other personally identifiable information. We use this anonymous information to help us figure out what you like most about our site so that we can keep improving it for everyone to enjoy!!

Links to other sites. We provide links to other websites on some sections of our site because we think they provide information that you might enjoy. Once you enter the third party site, your use of their services and the information that you provide to them is subject to their rules and policies, not ours.

Any questions, comments or concerns about this privacy policy or the Autumn Jade web site may be sent by email to info@autumnjade.com or to:

Autumn Jade Publishing
2730 Crescentview Drive

V7R 2V1

Finally, although the laws of the United States mandating privacy statements for children's websites do not apply in other countries (and thus do not apply to this website), we strongly recommend that adults carefully check for the existence of, and read, the privacy policy of any website their child visits.

Yours truly,

Steve Whan, principle author and owner of Autumn Jade Publishing
