Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Who we share your data with

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

Additional information

Kidspost.in is a site that is committed to providing safe, secure and fun information to people of all ages, and especially to children. It is designed to allow users to express opinions, read news, participate in polls and enter contests.

Since most of the visitors to this site are children, Kidspost.in takes special care to protect the personal information of its users. We are dedicated to helping our visitors learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. We also make efforts to ensure that children only access content that is appropriate for them. Our priority is to ensure that our users can share ideas and engage in online activities within a safe and secure environment.

As we continue to offer our visitors new and different types of content and services, Kidspost.in may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. To help ensure a rewarding and safe online experience for our users, we provide you with this summary of our information practices:

Site Features and Monitoring
All content sent in by users and displayed on the site is rigorously screened by moderators to ensure that no personal contact information about a user is inadvertently revealed. All site content is also monitored by moderators to ensure that it is appropriate for children.

The Information Collected
When visitors come to our site, we automatically collect some non-personally identifiable technical information, such as the type of computer operating system (Example: Windows or Mac), the user’s IP Address, the web browser (Example: Internet Explorer) being used and information regarding the Internet service provider. We may sometimes use the information collected to improve site design and content, to personalise a user’s experience and to offer products, programmes and services of interest to users.

When a user submits material through the ‘Feedback’, ‘Write to Us’ or ‘Subscribe to Kids Post’ sections, we directly collect personal information from the user (Example: first name, e-mail address, shipping address). We ask for this only to communicate with the user about support, security, privacy or administrative issues. Other information we ask for, such as school and date of birth, is used by Kidspost.in for research purposes to better understand who our users are.

All the information that we collect about our users is stored in a secure data facility and is only available to authorised personnel at Kidspost.in. Content contributed by users is visible to other users of Kidspost.in along with the contributing user’s name, class, school and city. User content that is on display on the site is screened by Kidspost.in moderators to ensure that no personal contact information (Example: e-mail address, shipping address, telephone number) is revealed to other users, thus ensuring a safe environment for children.

In the course of providing web-based products and services (such as web-based polls and applications) and in order to provide the highest quality user experience for our users, Kidspost.in tracks the activity of users accessing our site. This information includes IP addresses of users, page views, unique visitors and repeat visitors. This data does not correspond in any way with any personally identifiable information. We also use cookies, which are stored on the user’s computer to enhance the online experience. These cookies track user preferences, their online/offline status and user activities and interactions while on our site. Users may choose to reject these cookies, but if they do, they may be unable to take advantage of all the features and services of our site.

The financial information that a user enters to subscribe to Kids Post is not stored by us, but only by our payment gateway service provider for the purpose of processing debit/credit card payments made to us. This information is safeguarded with extremely high, bank-level security and all debit/credit card processing is done using completely secure, industry standard encryption to secure and encrypt your credit card transaction and other personal information.

Content submitted to Kids Post, including on the Wall of Fame, may be used across all of Kids Post’s different platforms and derivatives, versions, editions and adaptations, both physical and digital, across all territories. The content will be suitably credited wherever possible depending on the use.

If the parent or guardian of an under-18 user of Kidspost.in objects to any content or information posted by their child, they may contact Kids Post and we will delete it. Parents or legal guardians may also request that Kidspost.in remove children’s personal information at any time. They can do this by sending an email to [email protected]

Security and Protection of Information
We take additional precautions to secure and protect the information we collect. However, no information collected over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. If we become aware of a security breach that may affect a user’s personal information, we will immediately notify the user via the e-mail address provided. Kidspost.in does not rent or sell personal information to any third party. We will only share the user’s personal information under the following circumstances: to comply with a subpoena, court order, or other legal proceeding or if otherwise requested by a legitimate law enforcement body to cooperate in their investigations; to prevent, investigate or take some other action against illegal activities, potential fraud, potential physical threats to any person, violations of our terms of service or in any other way as required by law.

To ensure functionality of the website and execution of promotions, we will provide information to affiliated companies or other businesses or persons who provide web site hosting, maintenance and security services, fulfil delivery of physical merchandise (Example: prizes) or create new site features. We require that these parties process such information in compliance with this Privacy Policy. We authorise only a limited use of such information and we require these parties to use appropriate confidentiality measures.
