Effective as of: August 8, 2007
This privacy statement discloses the privacy practices for www.go2schoor.ws, the official website for LittleStar Magazine, a bi-monthly, school-oriented publication in China.
Information Collection and Use
LittleStar collects information from our users at several different points on our Website. LittleStar is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share or lease this information to others in ways other than as disclosed in this statement.
LittleStar deposits cookies on users’ hard drives. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. By setting a cookie on our site, a user does not have to enter a password more than once and saves time while on our site. Users who reject the cookie may still use LittleStar.ws, but they may be limited in some areas of our site.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
We will share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. This is not linked to any personal information that can identify any individual person. We use third-party vendors to provide services on the Website, such as sending email messages to subscribers. The information that a user submits on the site will be provided to our vendor on a confidential basis for the sole purpose of delivering LittleStar communications to users who have ‘opted in’ to receive them. Your email address will not be shared with any other third party. The personal information you provide on littlestar.ws will be sent directly to LittleStar and will not be retained by any of our partners.
Opt in/ Opt out
Users who no longer wish to receive our newsletters or other communications can unsubscribe from the Subscription Page on the site or by emailing us your request.
From time to time, we request information from users and newsletter subscribers via surveys. Participation in these surveys is voluntary, and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, school and postal address). Contact information may be used to notify winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for LittleStar Magazine or to improve the functions of this site.
This Website takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect our users’ information. When users submit sensitive information via the Website, LittleStar uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect their information both online and offline.
Correction/ Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us.
Notification of Changes
When you choose a password to join LittleStar community, the password is stored on the password-protected LittleStar.ws server. Because internet communications are generally not secure, you should be aware that when you send your password across the Internet to us, there is a possibility that an experienced hacker could intercept your password. However, there is no evidence that password information presents a serious security threat to warrant using a secure shell for this transaction.
A Notice about Our Advertisers
Links to Other Websites
Occasionally, you will find links from LittleStar to independently-owned, controlled, and/or managed Websites whose content we believe will be of possible interest and value to our visitors. Additionally you’ll see links from advertisers, sponsors and other partners that may use the LittleStar logo as part of a co-branding agreement. We don’t control the content of these links. These other sites may send you their own cookies, collect data or solicit personal information. While we identify sponsor and advertiser areas of our Websites, we do not control these cookies or the content of these third parties. LittleStar may partner with other companies to provide certain services. In that case, you may see the LittleStar logo on another company’s site. LittleStar does not share any of your personally identifiable information with these partners, and they do not share any information with us. We recommend that you view the privacy notice posted on such sites before you visit them, and especially that parents or teachers monitor any new sites before children connect to them.
LittleStar makes it possible for our users to share information through options such as School Ratings, The Poll, Message Board and article feedback. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. Consequently, you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
