Does Kappa Delta Sorority Collect Any Personal Information About Me?
Kappa Delta doesn’t require visitors to share any personal information about themselves in order to enjoy any of our websites. We do not collect any personal information from you online unless it is voluntarily provided, for instance when registering for contests, sweepstakes, promotions, completing online feedback forms, or purchasing products. Remember, only people who are 18 or older may purchase products from our online store.
What Ordering Information Does Kappa Delta Collect in Our Online Store?
We offer opportunities to purchase products online in our e-store, the Kappa Delta Boutique. Customers must be over age 18 and must use a valid credit card or other valid payment method accepted by Kappa Delta Sorority to purchase products online. When a customer places an order, we collect information associated with the requested transaction, such as the customer’s name, mailing address, products ordered, shipping addresses, and/or credit card information. We ask for this information so that we may fulfill the order.
Does Kappa Delta Sorority Collect Any Personal Information About Anyone Under 13?
A child can visit our sites or areas of our sites directed to children without providing personally identifiable information. We may offer child visitors opportunities to tell us about their interests through surveys and to share their thoughts regarding National Girls Day. We may ask a child to provide a first name, age, and state when submitting a response to one of our editorial departments in areas directed to children. This information is completely voluntary. When asked for a name, children may use “screen names” (not a real name) in order to protect their privacy. Before any responses are posted to our website, an editor reviews all the responses received and deletes any personally identifiable information. When we post a child’s e-mailed, we only use the child’s first name, age, and state. We do not collect personal information online from children under 13 without their parent’s consent except in special, limited circumstances.
Kappa Delta might collect an e-mail address and first name (or screen name) from your child under 13 without your consent online, but only in the following special cases:
- If a child under 13 sends a request to us, we keep their e-mail address long enough to respond to them.
- If a child under 13 wants to send an e-card, we use the sender and recipient’s e-mail addresses only to send the card. Please be aware that although Kappa Delta uses filters, we are unable to control the content of e-cards where visitors have the option of creating a message.
- If we offer an e-mail newsletter or other activity which requires multiple online contact with the child, we will ask for the child’s e-mail address and first name, and also ask the child for a parent’s e-mail address so we can notify you and give you an opportunity to opt out. If you no longer wish your child to participate in an e-mail newsletter, simply follow the instructions in the newsletter to unsubscribe.
- Occasionally, Kappa Delta has special site activities or promotions, like sweepstakes or contests, which are open to children even if they are under 13. We do not ask for more information from your child than is necessary for your child to participate in the activity. In the latter situation, we require your child to give us your e-mail address also, 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 (or screen name) to enter your child in the promotion 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 telephone 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 removed from our marketing database once the promotion, program or activity is concluded, and after any legally required period for keeping such information is complete.
Upon proper identification, parents may review the personal information we have collected online from their child, request deletion, or refuse to allow further collection or use by filling out a Parental Review Access Form and mailing it to the address on the form. However, if you ask us to delete your child’s information from our marketing database, we may have to ask your child not to participate in our activities.
We may also use other technology, called clear GIFs (sometimes called pixel tags or web beacons). This technology allows us to count visitors viewing our pages, and in promotional e-mails they can tell us when an e-mail has been opened. For administrative purposes, we also collect IP addresses, which is the automatic number assigned to your computer when you surf the web. Your IP address and cookies are not connected to any personally identifiable or on-line contact information like a name and address unless you; however, if you place an order, all information we have about you will be associated with your customer file.
What Does Kappa Delta Sorority Do With the Information We Collect?
We use all the information we collect to improve our site, understand our visitors, improve our products and services, and better serve you. We use the personal information we collect for a variety of reasons. For instance, if you register in a drawing, sweepstakes or contest, we will use the registration information to notify winners, or if you purchase a product, we will use the information to fulfill the order. Occasionally, we might also e-mail you to provide information on upcoming events, web site updates and promotions, or about the products or services of carefully selected third parties whose products and services may be of interest to you.
