The Website is committed to providing a fun, safe and secure website for people of all ages. We are dedicated to safeguarding all personal information collected online and to helping our visitors learn how to exercise control over personal information while exploring the Internet. Because many visitors to our Website are children, we take care that children access only the content that is appropriate for them. In addition, we employ special measures to help children protect their privacy while online. We do not ask children to disclose more personal information than is necessary for them to participate in a particular activity, and we take steps to prevent children from posting contact information. The Website is committed to full compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, as amended ("COPPA").

To help ensure a rewarding online experience for all visitors, we provide this summary of our information practices. This privacy policy (our "Privacy Policy") governs the collection, use and protection of your information while accessing the Website.

Please read anywhere that we say "you" or "your" in this policy as both applying to: (a) your child, and to (b) you, as the parent expressly agreeing to be fully and completely responsible for your child. Remember, the safety and protection of your children while online begins with your involvement and guidance.

What Information Is Collected?

At JaspertheMule.com, , it's our policy to create website content that requires minimum collection of information from our visitors. From time to time, however, we may request limited personally identifiable information ("PII") (e.g. a child's e-mail address and/or the e-mail address of a parent or third party, the child's first name, age and hometown), as explained below, in order to offer online activities.

E-mail

The Website provides the opportunity for visitors to send e-mail to us. All information collected is used only to respond to e-mail questions and/or requests.

Use of Information

JaspertheMule.com uses or may use PII that children provide for such purposes as responding to their questions regarding our products and services and submitting stories and photos. JaspertheMule.com currently does not disclose to third parties PII that children provide, except in order to comply with law or requests by law enforcement agencies, to enforce our Terms and Conditions or to protect the rights, property or safety of our Website, users of our Website and others.

If you are over the age of 13, we may use your PII to contact you, respond to your inquiries, and send you other information we think you may be of interest to you, such as special offers or to notify you of important new changes to our Website. If you are under 13 years of age, we will only use your PII to provide you with services and/or information that you have specifically requested and for which we have your parent's permission to provide. Finally, we use collected Usage Information to analyze, manage and improve our Website or to help us diagnose problems with our server or other technical issues relating to the performance of our Website.

Cookies and Log Data

Our Website may also use certain standard web measurement and tracking technologies such as "cookies," web server logs, or other statistics programs to track your use of our Website ("Usage Information") and help us measure the success of our Website and its features or pages. Cookies are information files that your web browser places on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. Cookies cannot damage user files, nor can they read information from a user's hard drive. Cookies allow websites to "remember" users' activities on a website as well as users' visits to a website. We use cookies to determine the number of unique visitors to our Website over a given period. We do not store any personal information into cookies nor do we link or combine information collected through cookies to any personal information that children submit online when participating in our activities. You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser.

We use log data — aggregate information — to improve access to our content based on our visitors' browsers and operating system types to make our content available to as many children as possible. We do not link the log data collected to the personal information that children submit online when participating in our activities.

Security

We take commercially reasonable precautions and have implemented commercially reasonable technical measures intended to protect against the risks of unauthorized access to, erroneous disclosure of, and unlawful interception of PII submitted via the Website. However, your e-mail transmissions and/or other communications containing PII may be unlawfully intercepted or accessed by third parties and/or the Website may be subject to hostile network attacks or administrative errors. We cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information transmitted over the Internet. Once we receive your PII, we take steps that we believe are commercially reasonable to limit access to your PII to only those employees and service providers whom we determine need access to the PII to provide the requested products, services, offers or opportunities that may be of interest to you. However, even after we receive your PII, we cannot guarantee that your PII may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of our commercially reasonable efforts or as a result of any other event beyond our reasonable control. Accordingly, we cannot and do not guarantee that your PII is completely secure and safe from such risks. FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ENSURING, GUARANTEEING OR OTHERWISE OFFERING ANY DEFINITIVE PROMISE OF SECURITY IN CONNECTION WITH YOUR PII OR USAGE INFORMATION.

Visitors wishing to make a submission are asked to first identify themselves as a child under 13 years old or a person 13 years or older. A request to submit will not be processed until the visitor clicks one of these choices.

If the visitor identifies himself or herself as a child under 13 years old, the child is directed to the, Jasper the Mule's Parental Consent Form.
