PRIVACY POLICY

 

Effective Date: December 3, 2010.

 

RiffRockit.com is committed to safeguarding the information we collect from you.  We have developed our privacy practices in compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and all other applicable laws and regulations.  COPPA requires that we notify and obtain consent from parents and guardians before we collect, use or disclose personal information from children under 13 years of age.  For more information on COPPA and the protection of children online, we encourage you to visit the federal government website on COPPA at www.ftc.gov/privacy/privacyinitiatives/childrens.html.    

 

To help you understand what information we collect from you, how we use it and to whom we disclose it, please review the summary of our information practices below.

 

What information do we collect?

 

You may visit our site and participate in most of our activities without our collection of any personal information from you.  We may ask you to create a username and password to participate in certain activities on our site, but we do not collect any information that would allow us or anyone else to identify you.  You should avoid including any personally identifying information in your username.  If we do collect any personally identifiable information from you to participate in special contests or features, we will notify and obtain the consent of your parent or guardian first if you are under 13 years of age.  We collect names, addresses, email addresses, phone numbers and credit-card information for purposes of purchases of merchandise by you on our site.   

 

We do not ask you to disclose more personally identifiable information than is necessary for you to participate in our website.  We will not knowingly collect, use, or distribute personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent from a parent or guardian.  We will not knowingly keep any personally identifiable information that is inadvertently included in a child’s email submission, help inquiry, or other one-time request if we know that the child is under the age of 13. 

 

Additionally, when you visit our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable computer information, such as the type of computer operating system (such as Windows XP or Mac OS) and web browser (such as Netscape or Internet Explorer) you are using, information regarding your Internet service provider, and the frequency with which you visit various parts of our site.  We use this information to manage the site and make it more interesting and useful to you.

 

What are cookies, and how do we use them?

 

A cookie is a small piece of information that we place in your computer browser to collect information regarding your preferences.  We use cookies to identify you when you visit us and to keep track of where you go so we can provide you with a personalized version of our site.  Cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information.  Cookies could enable us to relate your use of this site to personal information you have provided, but we do not use them for this purpose.  You can use your browser settings to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies.  If you turn off cookies, you will not have access to some of the features that make your experience on our site smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.

 

How do we use the information we collect?

 

We will use and disclose your information only as follows: (1) to contact parents or guardians for permission for their child to participate in certain activities and contests; (2) to permit you to participate in certain activities and contests on our site; (3) to confirm and ship your orders for merchandise and to follow up to make sure such orders are fulfilled; (4) if, in the course of placing an order or entering a contest, you opt to receive occasional emails from us notifying you of special offers, we will use such information to notify you of such offers; (5) to protect the rights and safety of us, our shareholders, members, officers, employees and customers; (6) at our option, to notify you of any changes to this Privacy Policy or our other terms and conditions of this site (you are bound by the terms of any changes we post to our site whether or not we notify you by email); (7) to protect the security and integrity of our site; (8) to respond to judicial process; (9) to provide information to law-enforcement agencies or for an investigation related to public safety; and (10) as otherwise required by law.

 

Do we disclose your information to third parties?

 

We disclose your information to third parties only as reasonably required to fulfill your orders and collect sums due us (such as to shippers and credit-card processors), to protect the rights and safety of us, our shareholders, members, employees and customers (such as to legal representatives and law enforcement), as necessary to those engaged by us to maintain the technical functioning of our site, and as required by law (such as the result of a court subpoena).  We may transfer your information in the event of the sale of substantially all of the assets of our business to a third party or in the event of a merger, consolidation or acquisition.  In such event, however, any acquirer will be subject to the provisions of our commitments to you.  Our intention is not to disclose your information other than to our own employees and third-party contractors who are bound by agreement with us to maintain the confidentiality of such information and who need the information for us to use the information permitted hereunder. 

 

How do we obtain permission from a parent of any child under 13 to use such information?

 

If we know a visitor is under the age of 13, we will request the permission of the child’s parent or guardian by email from what we are told is that parent’s email address, and we will respond to that email address to verify that we have received such permission. 

 

Linked websites

 

Our site may contain links to other websites, including those of sponsors and advertisers.  The information practices on those sites may be different from ours and are not covered by our privacy policy.  We encourage you to consult the privacy notices on those sites. 

 

How can parents and guardians access, update or delete their child’s collected personal information?

 

Parents and guardians can request to review, correct, update or have deleted their child’s personally identifiable information from our database by writing to us at our email address: privacy@riffrockit.com or at our regular mail address: Riff Rockit c/o Manatt, Phelps and Phillips, 11355 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064.  We will take reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parent or guardian before granting access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about the child.

 

What security measures do we have in place?

 

To the best of our ability, we have put in place physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information that we have collected from you at this site.  We take seriously our obligation to safeguard the confidentiality, security and integrity of personal information collected from our users and have established and will maintain procedures that are designed for that purpose.  You should be aware, however, that no system is completely secure from hackers, network failure and error, and we cannot guarantee the confidentiality, security and integrity of information maintained on our site.

 

Modification of privacy policy

 

To accommodate new services and features on our site and to ensure up-to-date compliance with privacy laws, we may modify our privacy policy from time to time.  When we modify our privacy policy, we will notify you by a conspicuous posting on this webpage.  We will treat all personal information we collect, however, in accordance with the privacy policy in effect at the time the information is collected.  We urge you to review this privacy policy often so you are always fully informed.
