BBC KIDS

WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

Knowledge-West Communications Corporation ("KWCC", "we", "us") operates the BBC Kids television service ("BBC Kids") and has developed this BBCKids.ca website (the "Website") as an electronic resource for the BBC Kids viewing audience and as a fun and entertaining site for visitors of all ages.
We are committed to providing our visitors with a website that respects their privacy. We feel that it is particularly important to protect the privacy of persons under the age of nineteen ("Minors"). This Privacy Policy is intended to demonstrate our firm commitment to you and your child's personal privacy.
This Privacy Policy outlines the information we may collect at this Website and how we may use that information. We encourage and support the efforts and legal guardians of children to monitor their children's Internet usage and to caution them against providing personal information to any website without their permission. If you are under the age of nineteen, then please have your parent or guardian go over this Privacy Policy with you and we request that you not provide us with your personal information unless you have the consent of your parent or guardian.

Information Automatically Collected
Non-identifying Information - Like many other organizations' websites, ours automatically collects certain non-identifying information regarding website users, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer, the IP address of your Internet Service Provider, the date and time you access our Website, the length of your visit, the pages you look at, and the websites you visit before and after leaving our Website. This non-identifying information is used for our Website and system administration purposes and to improve the Website. Your non-identifying information may be used and permanently archived for future use in order to facilitate your online experience and to gather broad demographic information. We may also share this information with our affiliates, suppliers and sponsors.
We make no attempt to link this information, including the information described below under 'Cookies', with the identity of individuals visiting our Website. We may, however, review server logs for security purposes, for example to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility exists that server log data, which contains visitors' IP addresses, could in instances of criminal or other malfeasance, or where necessary to protect the security and integrity of our Website, be used to trace and identify individuals and be shared with appropriate investigative bodies and others as permitted by law.

Cookies - To tailor our Website to the needs and interests of our visitors, we keep track of the pages visited by our users by placing a small entry-in text file, called a "cookie", on your hard drive. A cookie is transferred to your browser by a Web server and can only be used by the server that gave it to you.
Cookies installed on a website user's computer permits the website to recognize future visits from that computer. Cookies cannot read data from your hard drive. Cookies record information about your online preferences. Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse your profile when you visit and help us to provide you with a better user experience. KWCC uses measurement and analysis services offered by third parties. They gather information regarding visitors to our Website on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our Website. We use this type of information to help improve the services the Website provides to its users.
You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your use of our Website and your ability to access certain features of our Website.
When You Contact Us Through Our Website, This Is What We Do With The Information
During a visit to our Website, we do not collect personal information that identifies you as an individual, such as your name and contact information, unless you supply it voluntarily. KWCC reminds all visitors to keep in mind that whenever you give out personal information online, that information can be collected and used by people you do not know. If you do not want your personal information collected, then please do not submit it to us. Parents and guardians should be aware that although this Privacy Policy will govern our use of personal information, information that is voluntarily given on other websites (i.e. in chat sessions, email exchanges, bulletin boards or the like) will not be governed by this Privacy Policy and may be used by other parties indiscriminately for a variety of uses (including but not limited to unsolicited mail). KWCC encourages all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their personal information while using the Internet.
If you are a Minor, we request that you obtain your parent and/or guardian's permission before you provide personal information to us. We shall not collect any more personal information from Minors or others than is necessary to participate in our Website's interactive activities.
When you contact us through our Website, we collect and use your personal information for the following purposes:
• to respond to your comments and request for information
• to deliver requested services
• to administer contests
• to meet any legal or regulatory requirements

Occasionally, visitors will have the opportunity to submit ideas or content for inclusion on the Website. We may contact you if our Website managers decide to use your submissions. All Minors must have their parents or guardian approve their submission and any contact with KWCC will be made directly with the parent or guardian.
We reserve the right to collect, use or disclose a visitor's personal information as required or permitted by law. We may disclose personal information to affiliates and outside suppliers or contractors from whom we obtain services for the purposes of supplying those services, or in connection with the sale of our business. KWCC does not sell, license, rent, market, disclose, barter or distribute any personal information obtained from our Website other than as disclosed in this policy.

We Will Protect You When You Are On Our Site
