We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 without parental approval. If we learn that we have personal information on a child under the age of 13 without parental approval, we will delete that information from our systems. The Kabalarian Philosophy encourages parents to go online with their children. Here are a few tips to help make a child's online experience safer:
- Teach children never to give personal information, unless supervised by a parent or responsible adult, including name, address, phone, school, etc.
- Know the sites your children are visiting and which sites are appropriate.
- Look for Web site privacy policies. Know how your child's information is treated.
Shipping companies (Fed Ex, UPS) may also need access to some of your personal information. For example, if we need to ship something to you, we must share your name and address with a shipping company. We provide these companies with the minimum amount of information needed to complete the requested service or transaction. We do not otherwise share your personal information with third-parties, unless you have granted us permission to do so.
We may collect and possibly share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of the Kabalarian Philosophy's terms and conditions, or as otherwise required by law. We may respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process. We also may choose to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims.
