The School Shoppes Web site use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize School Shoppes pages, or register with School Shoppes site or services, a cookie helps School Shoppes to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same School Shoppes Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the School Shoppes features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the School Shoppes services or Web sites you visit.
School Shoppes secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. School Shoppes secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Our policy is to not collect any personal information on any person under 13 because children are not permitted to use the site or receive services on the site. We request that children under the age of 13 not submit any personal information to us using the site. As a measure to ensure that we do not collect personal information from children, we require that all individuals provide a valid credit card number before completing a purchase order on the site. If we learn that we have inadvertently collected personal information about children under 13, we will attempt to notify such child's parent or guardian and erase such information from our records, unless the child's parent or guardian consents to our maintaining such information.
School Shoppes will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. School Shoppes encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how School Shoppes is protecting your information.
School Shoppes welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe that School Shoppes has not adhered to this Statement, please contact School Shoppes at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly determine and remedy the problem.
