to our online practices only.
The following policy applies to the TZIVOSHASHEM.COM
site and its subsidiary's sites (the sites and entities
collectively referred to herein as "TzivosHashem.com"
and "Tzivos Hashem" respectively).
Tzivos Hashem is committed to protecting the privacy
and security of its online visitors. This policy statement
provides our visitors (e.g., parents, teachers, and
children) with an overview of the measures we have taken
to provide a safe environment for everyone.
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We consider the following, among other things, to
be personally identifiable information: first and last
name, e-mail address, street address and phone number.
We may request such personally identifiable information
from our visitors to process and fulfill orders for
products or services (such as our magazines) and in
connection with contests, sweepstakes, games, surveys,
forums, subscription registrations, content submissions,
classroom activities, our requests for suggestions and
visitors' requests for information.
There are many activities on the Tzivos Hashem site
that children can participate in and enjoy without having
to share personally identifiable information.
For those activities that require personally identifiable
information, such as contests and sweepstakes, in compliance
with the Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online
Privacy Protection Act, Tzivos Hashem will not condition
a child's participation in an activity on that child
disclosing more personally identifiable information
than is reasonably necessary to administer the activity.
For certain online activities, we require verifiable
parental consent before collecting or using personally
identifiable information from children under the age
of 13. With these activities, Tzivos Hashem will notify
verifiable parental consent before collecting personally
identifiable information from the child, unless we collect
only the child's name and online contact information
to (1) obtain parental consent or provide parents with
notice; (2) respond directly on a one-time basis to
a child's specific request; (3) respond more than once
to a child's specific request along with providing parental
notice of such use; (4) protect the safety of a child;
or (5) comply with legal requirements. When we provide
parents with notice and/or seek consent, we also give
parents the ability to let us know if they do not want
any further use made of the personally identifiable
information we have collected from their child.
Unless we indicate otherwise and obtain prior parental
consent, personally identifiable information collected
from children under the age of 13 will be used solely
by Tzivos Hashem, or Tzivos Hashem's agents for internal
purposes and will not be sold or otherwise transferred
to third parties.
It is Tzivos Hashem's policy never to post on its site
more than a child's first name, first initial of last
name, state, and age or grade.
Parents can request to review or have deleted their
child's personally identifiable information from Tzivos
Hashem's records, and refuse to permit further use of
a child's information by writing to us at: Tzivos Hashem,
792 Eastern Pkwy., Brooklyn, New York 11213, Re: Parent's
Request for Information.
In some areas of our site, we collect personally identifiable

may share such information with third parties. If you
do not wish to receive such information or if you prefer
not to have the personally identifiable information
you submit shared with third parties, please let us
know. Either indicate the media notification you no
longer wish to receive or that you do not want to have

Remember to be smart online. Do not give out your full
name, e-mail address, home address, telephone number
or any other personal information that would enable
someone to contact you either online or offline, without
first asking your parent or guardian for permission.
Sometimes on our site we will ask you for your first
name and e-mail address along with your parents' e-mail
address. We do this so that we can contact your parents
to let them know that you have communicated with us,
and that we have collected this information from you.
NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND
THE USE OF COOKIE TECHNOLOGY
We collect non-personally identifiable information
through the use of a software technology called "cookies,"
and through our visitors' voluntary submissions to us
and/or upon our request. By non-personally identifiable
information, we are referring to information about our
visitors' browsers (e.g., Netscape Navigator or Internet
Explorer), operating systems (e.g., Windows or Macintosh),
Internet service providers (e.g., AOL or NET.COM) and
other similar information which we track in aggregate
form. We also collect the following non-personally identifiable
information in connection with content submissions,
games, classrooms, and bulletin boards: first name only
and first initial of last name, state, age, and grade.
The non-personally identifiable information that we
track is anonymous and will never be identified with
or lead us back to any of our visitors.
Cookie technology helps us to know how many people
visit us and where visitors go on our site. Cookies
are small bits of information we send to your computer.
Among other things, this non-personally identifiable
information allows us to know which areas are favorites,
which areas need a bit of improvement, or what technologies
and Internet services are being used by our visitors
so that we may continually improve our visitors' online

a back-end server that logs your computer's IP address.
We only use the information we find out from tracking
IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users
entered a specific area of our site, and not to track
a specific IP address to identify an individual user.
However, we may use such information to identify a user
if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security
issues or to comply with legal requirements.

send to us, unless we indicate otherwise. We will give
out personal information as required by law, for example
to comply with a court order or subpoena or to assist
in criminal investigations. We may also give out personal
information when we deem it advisable in order to protect
the safety and security of our sites and visitors to
Why are we so safe?
