- Privacy Statement
Effective MARCH 1, 2013.
The Site (defined below) is provided by Three Daughters International, LLC ("Three Daughters", "we", "our", or "us"). This Privacy Statement governs your use of the Site, regardless of how you access or use them. By "Site", we mean the Internet domain addresses within which this Privacy Statement is posted and all features, applications, content, and downloads that are operated by us and that are available through or interact with them, and/or post links to this Privacy Statement. Each time you access and/or use the Site (other than to simply read this Privacy Statement), you agree to be bound by and comply with all of the terms of this Privacy Statement. Therefore, do not use the Site if you do not agree to all of the terms of this Privacy Statement. If you are visiting the Site, please also review the Site's Terms and Conditions of Website Use.
We urge you and your family to follow common sense whenever disclosing personal information - on this site or anywhere else.
FOR PARENTS AND LEGAL GUARDIANS:
Three Daughters adheres to the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA) and the guidelines of the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU) of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, Inc. in our websites and online services directed to children under 13. Wherever we refer to "children" or a "child" in this Privacy Statement we mean children under 13. Please help us protect your child's privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information (like their full name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, etc.) without your permission.
If you are under 13, you should get your parent's or legal guardian's permission before giving out your contact information, like e-mail address or phone number, or any other personal information, to Three Daughters or to anyone else.
1. Three Daughters' Children's Privacy Practices
At our websites or online services directed to children under 13, we do not collect personal contact information (like full name, e-mail address, phone number or home address) without consent of a parent or legal guardian except in special, limited circumstances described below. We do not ask for more information than is necessary for a child to participate in the activity. We take steps to prevent children from posting or publicly disclosing personal contact information, like name, phone number or e-mail address, online, without parental consent.
a. Information Three Daughters Collects from Children Under 13 and Use of Information
We may sometimes need a child's e-mail address and/or your e-mail address. We may ask a child for your e-mail address so we can notify you of your child's interest in our Site. If we need more than just your child's first name and e-mail address for your child to participate in a particular online activity, we will ask your child for your e-mail or mailing address so that we can notify you of your child's request and get your permission. When we ask for your permission, we will tell you what we will do with the information you or your child provides us, and how you can review your child's information and ask us to delete the information. With your verifiable consent, we may collect other personal information from your child such as a last name or home address when the information is necessary for a particular activity.
We don't keep your (or your child's) e-mail address unless you tell us it is okay. If social networking opportunities are available at our children's websites, they are structured so that no personal information is shared between visitors or verifiable parental consent is obtained.
Three Daughters might collect an e-mail address and first name from your child under 13 without your consent, but only in the following special cases:
- If a child sends a request to us, we keep their e-mail address for long enough to respond to them. Three Daughters deletes this information from our system after we answer their question. In the case of "send a friend" e-mails, we do not ask for your child's e-mail address and only use the friends' e-mail address to send the message.
- If a child signs up for an e-mail newsletter or other activity that requires multiple online contacts with the child, we also ask the child for a parent's or legal guardian's e-mail address so we can notify you and give you an opportunity to opt out.
- Occasionally, Three Daughters has special activities or promotions, like sweepstakes or contests, that are open to children. We ask your child to give us your e-mail address, too, so that we can tell you that they have registered in a promotion or for a service. If we need more than an e-mail address and first name to enter your child in the promotion, award a prize, or offer the service, we will notify you, explain what information we need and why, and generally ask that you (not your child) provide it. For instance, we might ask you for your mailing address so that we can send to you, for your child, any prizes your child wins, or for your phone number so that we can tell you when your child has won. Any information you or your child give us in the above special circumstances will be deleted from our database once the promotion, program or activity is concluded, and after any legally required period for keeping such information is complete.
We may offer enhanced services which require a parent to register and establish the appropriate permission level for the child. Content and activities available may vary depending on the subscription and Site. Parents will be provided with information on the type of content and activities their child may access at the time they subscribe and are always in charge of their child's account. Subscription fees may apply for some services.
We may ask for certain non-personal information that helps us understand our visitors, like city and state, gender, hobbies, etc.
We also use technology to facilitate the ability to recognize returning visitors, for research, and for other purposes, including to screen under-age visitors from certain features or areas intended for older visitors, and collect certain information automatically. We require our advertising service partners to comply with self-regulatory guidelines on targeted advertising. Three Daughters does not permit interest-based advertising on its websites directed to children under 13 or where we have actual knowledge that a child is under 13.
b. Children's Access the Web Through the Site
Your child can navigate to the Internet through our Site. We encourage you to spend time with your children when they are online so you understand the Site and to adopt available device and browser controls that reflect your preferences about your child's ability to access the Internet or make purchases online.
c. Accessing, Updating and Reviewing Information We Have About Your Child
Parents or legal guardians may review the personal information we have collected about their child, update their child's contact details, request deletion, or refuse to allow further collection or use of the information by contacting us using the Contact Us form on this website.
However, if you ask us to delete your child's information, your child may not be able to participate in online or app activities.
2. Three Daughters' Privacy Practices for Consumers 13 or Older
You do not have to share any personal information (like full name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number, etc.) to view our websites, but most of our websites for adults, like our e-commerce Site, contain special sections and privileges for members who register. We may also collect information from you offline, such as when you order a catalogue, participate in a sweepstakes or contest, or make a purchase at one of our stores. We may obtain customer lists, demographic and other information about you from commercial sources.
We also use technology to collect certain information automatically, like your IP address or unique device identifier ("UDID"), international mobile equipment identity ("IMEI"), mobile equipment identifier ("MEID") or media access control "MAC") address; computer operating system (e.g., Microsoft Windows, Mac OS); your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox); websites visited before or after you visit our Site; pages viewed and activities at our Site; and advertisements shown or clicked on.
On our websites for adults, we may combine all information we have collected to better understand your needs, improve our Site, products and services, manage content and advertising, send you offers and information, and better serve you. We may offer parents the opportunity to manage their child's activities, and to receive reports, messages and product recommendations related to their child's activities at our Site.
a. Personal Contact Information Three Daughters Collects from Consumers 13 or Older
We do not collect any personal contact information from you or your teenager when you visit our Site unless it is voluntarily provided, for instance when signing a guest book, registering for contests, sweepstakes, community areas, downloads, or free demos, completing our online customer surveys or purchasing products. The personal information we ask for is usually first and last name, mailing address, phone number and an e-mail address. We may also ask you to help us understand your interests by providing demographic information, like age, gender, or ZIP code, or information on hobbies and interests. You may be able to submit a resume and apply for a job at our Site.
b. Information Three Daughters Collects For Online Shopping
We may offer opportunities to purchase products in our e-store or through other media or business partners. Customers must be over the age of 18 with a valid credit card to purchase.
When a customer puts an item in a shopping cart, places an order or requests a catalogue online, we collect information associated with the transaction, including the customer's name, mailing address, products ordered, shipping address, and credit card information, as well as ship-to information if products are intended for a third party. Customers have the option of registering certain information for future orders while completing their online order. For the customers who choose to register, we will capture their login name, password, name and mailing address, billing address, alternate ship-to addresses, and credit card information.
When registered customers return to the Site to place subsequent orders, they can identify themselves with their login name and password.
When a customer places an order online, we will send a confirming e-mail message. We may also send an occasional e-mail featuring a special promotion or product that may be of interest to customers. Any customer who prefers not to receive an online order confirmation or promotional e-mail should indicate this preference on the online store order form. If you do receive a commercial e-mail from us that you would rather not receive, simply follow the "unsubscribe" instructions included in the e-mail.
3. Posting or Uploading Content at Three Daughters' Site
Some areas of our Site offer the opportunity for visitors to post or upload reviews, comments, videos or pictures, or engage in interactive features. Registration may be required. If social networking opportunities are available at our children's websites, they are structured so that no personal information is shared between visitors or verifiable parental consent is obtained. Special rules may apply to social networking activities, so be sure to review any additional posted rules carefully, as well as our Terms and Conditions of Website Use.

Three Daughters and its agents or service providers or business partners may receive and store certain information automatically whenever you visit our Site, use an online service. This may include information on your browser type and operating system, the pages that you view, referring sites (sites you visited before you came to our site and sites you go to after you visit our site), IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) when you surf the Web, or other unique device identifiers (UDID) associated with mobile devices, smart phones, etc. These device identifiers allow us to count the total number of "hits" on our Site.
We collect certain information using technology, like cookies and pixel tags. We may also use "Flash" cookies in connection with some games or other content to store game and activity progress for the Flash player or to store bandwidth information for the performance of the Flash player.

A "cookie" is a small file that is saved on your computer or mobile device that contains non-personal or de-identified information. Cookies help improve your user experience, and allow us to analyze our websites and manage our advertising.
Our cookies help to give you faster access to pages you have already visited; they allow you to personalize your pages and us to customize our offerings; and they help you to participate in some activities or events on our Site. For instance, cookies keep track of items in your shopping cart and wish list in our online stores, and may be used to help you engage in other activities, like comparison shopping.
For administrative purposes, we collect IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the Web. Certain Internet Service Providers may assign the same IP address to many users. The IP address allows us to count the total number of "hits" on our Site. Your IP address and cookies are not connected to any personally identifiable or online contact information, like a name or email address, unless you register or order at our online stores; however, if you register at our online stores, all information we collect will be associated with your customer file.

Check your browser's Help menu or your built-in mobile device settings to find out how. Some mobile devices store cookies not only in areas connected to the browser, but also in areas that are app-specific so these cookies cannot be controlled by the browser settings.
Please note that if you do not accept cookies, some features or activities may not be available to you.
Flash cookies, also known as local shared objects ("LSOs"), are built for use with Adobe® Flash® Player. LSOs act like cookies in that they store information to provide you with a more customized experience, but LSOs can store complex data that cookies cannot, and LSOs are not deleted or rejected if you set your browser to delete or reject cookies.
