Privacy and SecurityPlease read the following carefully as it relates our guarantee to you and your child regarding privacy and security on this website and the use thereof.
Voice Painter is a product of VisiSound Technologies, and voicepainter.com is its website which is provided to young people to provide them with a special and beneficial multimedia experience. VisiSound Technologies and Voicepainter.com believe in the power of kids and we urge both kids and their parents to use and enjoy our website. Voicepainter.com is committed to complying with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998. Our information collection practices are described below. We urge kids to check with their parents before entering information on any website and we urge parents to discuss with their kids restrictions regarding the online release of personal information to anyone they don't know.
What Information Is Collected?
At voicepainter.com it's our policy to create website content that requires minimum collection of information from our visitors. Generally, voicepainter.com limits our collection of information from kids to what is known as nonpersonally identifiable information (e.g. screen name, birthday, gender, state, zip code and country of residence). This information is collected so kids can participate in activities (e.g. chat with celebrities, post messages, play online games) without giving unnecessary personal information. From time to time, however, we may request limited personally identifiable information (e.g. kid's email address and/or email address of parent or third party), as explained below, in order to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities (e.g. electronic postcards, newsletters). Voicepainter.com does not condition a kid's participation in any of our online activities on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. As explained below, we also collect from parents additional types of information (e.g., credit card and billing information) when they purchase products and offerings at our site.
Contests and Promotions
Voicepainter.com occasionally offers contests and sweepstakes, which may be entered online. To participate in a contest or sweepstakes, a child is asked to provide his or her first name and email address. Sometimes, when we conduct contests or sweepstakes that may involve more than a one-time contact, we ask additionally for the email address of his or her parent. In such types of contests or sweepstakes, we send the child's parent an email within two business days informing him or her of the child's entry and give the parent the option to have the child's entry deleted. All the information collected by voicepainter.com is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of conducting the contest or sweepstakes Once the contest or sweepstakes if finished, we then delete any personal information collected. The information collected in a voicepainter.com sweepstakes may be passed to a fulfillment house which may use the information to help run the contest or sweepstakes and may not use it for other purposes and has agreed to maintain the confidentiality of such information.
Use of Information
Voicepainter.com uses or may use personally identifiable information that kids provide for such ourposes as sending requested electronic cards and email messages on their behalf, and conducting contests or sweepstakes, and responding to their questions regarding our products and services. Voicepainter.com currently does not disclose to third parties personally identifiable information that kids provide, except from time to time, we may transfer, disclose or share such information with third parties who may be engaged by us specifically to handle and deliver certain online activities (e.g. conducting contests and sweepstakes). Such third parties have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. Additionally, in the event that all or substantially all of the assets relating to voicepainter.com are transferred or sold to another entity, personally identifiable information submitted to us may be transferred to the acquiring entity. Finally, we may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties 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.
Voicepainter.com, as an offering of VisiSound Technologies, has taken extensive steps to ensure that personally identifiable information collected in the future is secure, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers as well as electronic security systems and password protections which guard against unauthorized access. Also, VisiSound has secured both SSL (Secure Socket Layer) and code signing certificates from Tucows, Corp. and Comodo - each highly regarded in the security guarantee domain. These certificates help assure the safety and security of both the voicepainter.com website, as well as the integrity and safety of downloads from the website. Voicepainter.com may provide links to other websites that may have their own information collection practices. Voicepainter.com will provide "linker pages" that inform kids that they have linked to another site and instructs them not to give out information online before checking with their parents. These other websites are governed by their own privacy policies or information collection practices, which may be substantially different from ours. We encourage visitors to other websites to review the privacy policies and information collection practices of those websites.
