Collection of Personal Information from Children
We understand children’s use of E-mail and the Internet is cause for special concerns regarding privacy and security of information. Therefore, for children under the age of 13, Chapman’s asks parents and legal guardians to provide their own personal information when creating an account and using this website instead of their children’s personal information. We encourage parents to spend time online with their children as well as check and monitor their children’s online activities. Please help us to protect your child’s privacy by instructing them to have you involved whenever they wish to create an account, redeem points for a prize, purchase a product, or use any other feature of our site that requests a user’s personal information.
What Information Do We Collect?
In order to fully participate in the Kid’s Club and make consumer inquiries, you will be asked to provide us with your name, address, birth date, and/or email address. If you wish to purchase a product from our site, you will also be asked to provide us with your payment card details. We do not require anyone to disclose more information than necessary to participate in the Chapman’s Kid’s Club or to enable us to respond to inquiries, as the case may be. You may elect not to provide us with such information but by doing so you will not be able to access many of the games, activities, services and opportunities available in the Kid’s Club and we may not be able to respond to your inquiries.
While you browse our website, technical information in regards to your Internet browser and your IP address may be passively collected. This information is used to ensure our website is kept compatible with as many web browsers as possible.
What is the Information Used for?
Information collected from consumer inquiries will be used to help us respond to such inquiries.
Your name, address and payment card information will be used to process your transactions and provide you with related customer service.
Your address will also be used to mail any of the prizes you claim or products you purchase to you. We collect information about ages in order to help us tailor the Kid’s Club activities and generate statistical data to assist us with product development.
With Whom Do We Share Information?
Product information and comments, questions and suggestions may be forwarded to our Quality Assurance or Product Development departments, or to our distributors for the purpose of product development and quality control. Technical information gathered is only available and used by our Web Development and Database Administration departments to administer this website.
We also share your personal information with third-party service providers who perform a variety of functions to enable us to provide our services, such as processing transactions, shipping products to you, and protecting against fraud. These service providers only have access to the personal information necessary to perform their functions, only act on our behalf and according to our instructions, and may not use it for purposes other than to perform such functions.
Except as described in this policy or where permitted or required by law, we never share personal information that we receive online. We do not provide any “customer lists” to outside companies for use for marketing or any other purposes.
Your personal information is kept secure on web servers located in Canada. When processing transactions made on our site, we may also transfer personal information to our payment service providers in the United States. Only authorized Chapman’s Ice Cream staff and affiliated companies’ staff (who have agreed to keep the information secure) have access to your personal information. We take commercially reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. All access to the information we collect is subject to physical, electronic and managerial restrictions to prevent unauthorized access, modification or misuse. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.
