This Privacy Statement ("Statement") describes the personal information we collect through our website (the "Site"), and how we collect and use it. The terms "we", "us", and "igokids" refer to igokids.
Information we may collect and how we may use it
We ask for and store information about you when you create an account on the Site, such as your name, email address and zip code. You can also import your account information from a third party to make the igokids registration process easier. By default, we use your first name and last initial to create your account name (the "Account Name"). You may change your Account Name here. We may use your zip code or signup location to help target the Site to the neighborhood, city, region or country in which you live. We may use your email address to send you updates, provide services to you in connection with the Site, and to contact you on behalf of other users sending you messages, complements, and the like. In the future, we may also use your signup location, birth date, gender, and gender and ages of children in your household (if you choose to supply them) to display relevant advertising to you. You can change your account information here.
You can contribute to the Site in a number of different ways, including writing reviews, sending compliments, uploading photos, participating in chat or message threads and filling out your public profile. We may store these contributions (your "Public Content"), display them to other users, and use them for promotional purposes. Note that if you include personally identifiable information in your Public Content, it can be used and viewed by others. We are not responsible for the information you choose to include in your Public Content.
You can invite your friends and family members to join the Site by providing their contact information, or by entering your log-in credentials to import your address book from other sites. We may store and use your friends' contact information to invite them to join and connect with you on the Site. Your friends and family members will always have the opportunity to opt-out of receiving further emails from us.
Messaging other users
The Site allows you to exchange messages with others using the messaging feature and email. We may store these messages in order to deliver them and allow you to manage them.
Activity and log data
We may automatically store information related to your use of the Site, such as the pages you view on the Site, your search queries, your browser type, IP address, requested URL, browser language, referring URL, and the date and time of your visit. We may use this type of information to administer the Site and provide the highest possible level of service to you. We may also use this information in the aggregate to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the Site.
We love feedback. Please feel free to give us feedback, register a complaint, or ask any questions about the Site. We may store your communications, including any personal information you include in them, so that we can effectively respond to you and improve the Site. Contact Us to provide feedback.
We may use the information described above for routine administrative purposes, such as investigating abuses on the Site, responding to user inquiries and enforcing and applying our Terms of Service.
We store data in the United States.
Transfer of information
If you post content for public view on the Site, we may distribute such Public Content to a wider audience by sharing it (or portions of it) with third parties so that they can publish it on their own websites and media platforms. We may ask them to credit you as the source of these contributions by including your Account Name and profile photo.
Third party service providers
We may use third parties to provide technical and customer support, perform tracking and reporting functions, conduct quality assurance testing, perform payment processing and provide other services in connection with the Site. We may share information about you with them so that they can perform the services they are required to perform, but they are not permitted to use your personal information other than to provide the services requested by you.
We may share non-personal information in the aggregate to third parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationship with those third parties, such as advertisers and content distributors. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertising banners.
We may share your information with our parent company, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control that we may have now or in the future, in which case we will require them to honor this Statement. If another company acquires our company or all or substantially all of our assets, that company will possess your information, and will assume the rights and obligations with respect to that information as described in this Statement.
We reserve the right to investigate abuses on the Site, and enforce and apply our Terms of Service. We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Terms of Service; (c) comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
The Site may contain links to third party websites with which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your personal information with those third parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices. We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third party websites.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions regarding our privacy policies or if you believe that igokids has not adhered to this Statement then please Contact Us.

We may revise this Statement from time to time. The most current version of the Statement will govern our use of your information and will always be located here. If we make a change to this Statement that, in our sole discretion, is material, we will notify you either by prominently posting a notice of such changes prior to implementing the change on the Site and/or via the email associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those changes become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Statement.
