Word World’s Commitment
Word World is committed to providing quality online activities and information to preschoolers, their parents and other caregivers. We pride ourselves on developing and maintaining a relationship built on trust. As such, while we encourage the interactive nature of online media, we are dedicated to promoting the online safety and privacy of our users as well as handling any personal information we obtain from you with care and respect.

Information-Collection Policies
This Privacy Policy applies to the use and sharing of personally identifiable information collected on and after the date that this Privacy Policy is posted. When this Privacy Policy uses the term "personally identifiable information," we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual's name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number. When other information, such as, for example, consumer product preferences, or number of children, is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also becomes personally identifiable information for purposes of this Privacy Policy.

Word World's target audience is preschoolers and their parents. WordWorld.com's design, content, and language, as well as our activities, target both children and a parent audience. We do request personally identifiable information from parents who choose to participate in certain activities available on WordWorld.com, as described below. If we were to discover that a child submitted personally identifiable information, WordWorld.com would delete the information immediately.

Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
In compliance with the United States Law: The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act/Rule, it is necessary for us to obtain parental permission for all children under the age of 13 to register as a member in the members section of this website, should WordWorld.com ever do so. We will not knowingly accept any information by any children under the age of 13 except as otherwise provided herein. For any children under the age of 13 a parent or guardian will need to contact the Privacy Coordinator to provide consent for any portion of the site which gathers personal information. Permission will only be granted after all information has been verified by the Privacy Coordinator.

Registered Membership
Wordworld.com provides registered membership for our parent audience. In order to participate in our registered member activities, we ask users to submit personal information (e.g. full name, e-mail address, zip code, birthday). All such personal information is collected for the purpose of providing our users access to WordWorld.com's registered members activities. Once registered, users can participate in registered member activities such as newsletters, message boards, WordWorld.com advisory panels (where members will be contacted by WordWorld.com for feedback and opinions on various subjects), registered member sweepstakes (refers to those sweepstakes that are open only to registered members; for sweepstakes that are open to all grown-up users, please see "Contests and Online Sweepstakes" section below) and "Third Party" offers (the opportunity for registered members to receive information concerning special offers and promotions sent by either WordWorld.com on behalf of or in partnership with other third party businesses selected by WordWorld.com or directly by such third parties). At any time after the registration process, registered members can choose to discontinue participating in some of the registered member activities (e.g. newsletters, advisory panels, "Third Party" offers) or altogether unregister by electing to unsubscribe to such activity, which option can be found at the end of every WordWorld.com correspondence sent to users.

Use of Registered Members Information
All information collected during the registration process is used for the purpose of providing our users access to WordWorld.com's registered members activities. For instance, if the registered member selected to receive newsletters, special announcements, offers and promotions from Word World, we use the information provided by such registered member to send them the requested information which we may send by e-mail and occasionally, by postal mail, for those who have provided us with mailing addresses. The information provided by registered members may also be shared with third parties as more fully described below in "Use and Disclosure of Information" and in the following manner. In connection with registered members who have indicated that they would like to receive "Third Party" offers, WordWorld.com may sometimes share and transfer the personal information collected from our registered members with and to third party business partners selected by WordWorld.com to promote, sponsor and/or fulfill our "Third Party" offers who will use such information to directly contact and send registered members special offers and promotions provided by the third party business partner. Other times, we, on behalf of the third party business partner, may send registered members third party special offers and promotions, but only if the registered member has requested such "Third Party" offers.

Online Contests and Sweepstakes
WordWorld.com offers children and their parents the opportunity to enter contests and sweepstakes. WordWorld.com may ask for information such as parent's first name, parent's e-mail address, parent's birth date, child's first name and birth date and in some instances, Wordworld.com may collect telephone numbers for certain types of contests. WordWorld.com uses this information for purpose of conducting the contests and sweepstakes and does not (except as set forth herein) disclose such information externally to third parties, except with a fulfillment house which WordWorld.com uses to help select winners and fulfill prizes and, in some cases, with third-party sponsors. From time to time, WordWorld.com may offer contests and sweepstakes sponsored by third party businesses and may share with such third party businesses entrant information collected by WordWorld.com. In these types of contests and sweepstakes, WordWorld.com will disclose to potential entrants that such information will be so supplied and the identity of the third party to whom such information will be supplied at the time entrant information is collected and will provide potential entrants with the opportunity to opt out of such third party sponsored contests and sweepstakes. However, any information supplied to a third party may be retained by such third party and will be out of the control of WordWorld.com. Entrants of WordWorld.com contests and sweepstakes have the opportunity to opt-in (by indicating so on the entry form) to become subscribers of the WordWorld.com newsletter and to receive other e-mail special announcements and promotions. Please see "Electronic Newsletter and Special Announcements Subscription" below. The personal information collected from those entrants who have chosen to opt-in to the Electronic Newsletter and Special Announcements Subscription shall be maintained by WordWorld.com. For those who elect not to opt-in, and/or entrants who have not been selected as winners, WordWorld.com will delete personal information collected on the online entry forms from its system, however, personal information collected online from contests and sweepstakes winners may be maintained by WordWorld.com and may be shared with third parties for fulfillment purposes, as described above, as well as internally.

As such, we do not share any personal information about our users in the Games and Activities area with any third parties. In addition, we do not condition a kid's participation in any games or other online activities contained in the Games and Activities area on the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the activity. Lastly, we provide a "bumper page" at certain points in the Games and Activities area of our site to let users know when they are entering an area that is limited to parents and we also provide a "bumper page" when linking from the Games and Activities area to another website, which may have their own information practices that are different from ours, in order to let users know they are going to another website.
