Protecting your privacy is important to thumbprints. We hope the following policy will help you understand how thumbprints collects, uses, and safeguards the personal information you provide through phone, print, e-mail or on our web site when on-line data collection becomes available.Information Collection
If you browse thumbprints’ web site, you do so anonymously. We don’t collect personal information — including your e-mail address. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our web site you visit and how long you spend there. But we do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. The only other information automatically provided to us is the type of computer and operating system you are using. Your browser supplies us with this information.
Like many other commercial web sites, the thumbprints web site may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to About Cookies for more information.
In some of our customer e-mail communication, we use a device called a “click-through URL.” When you click on one of these URLs, you pass through our system before arriving at the web site that is your true destination. thumbprints uses click-throughs to determine the level of interest in particular topics and to measure the effectiveness of our communications. We do not share this data with anyone, and we make no attempt to match click-throughs to particular e-mail addresses.
At times we may request that you voluntarily supply us with personal information, such as your e-mail address and postal address, for purposes such as corresponding with us.
We use the personal information you provide to create a personal customer account, called a thumbprints ID.
If you provide us with your e-mail or postal address, or have done so in the past, we will ask you if we can use it to send you updates on the latest thumbprints products and promotions.
When you supply thumbprints with your personal information, we may use it to contact you so that we may learn more about our customers. This will help us to develop better products and services. And if you have given us permission, we may use your personal information to inform you about new products, services, and offers that may be of interest to you. These offers may be based on the information you provided in your initial transaction with us.
Declining E-mail Offers
thumbprints provides customers with an easy means to decline receiving e-mail offers. Although most customers tell us they appreciate receiving notice of these opportunities, we recognize the importance of providing you with choices. At any time, you may request to discontinue receiving these offers from us by simply replying to the e-mail and informing us of your preferences. All e-mail offers that you receive from thumbprints will tell you how to decline further e-mail offers.
thumbprints encourages parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the interactive activities offered on the sites their children visit. As such, at no time will the thumbprints site ever contain Adult content or links to Adult sites.
