Our Commitment to Privacy
The Information and Data We Collect
This notice applies to all information collected or submitted on the MyChildCareGuide.com website. On some pages, you may submit your email address for purposes of verifying information for security purposes. Other reasons you may submit your email address to us is to register to receive newsletters or updates from our website pertaining to your inquiries. We may collect personal information in the comments or review section (only if provided by you). We do not request any private information other than an email address and we ask that you don't post or provide any additional information on our website that you would expect to keep private. Any private information that we collect on our forms, such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers will not be made available for general public viewing.
Our web logs collect standard web log entries for each page. Typical items that our web log would collect are IP address, page URL and date and time stamp. Web logs can help us diagnose problems to better service you.
On some pages, you can submit information about child care organizations, groups, individuals, agencies, schools or programs. MyChildCareGuide.com recommends that you leave comments based on factual occurrences, factual information gathered or other unbiased comments related to your experience with a particular child care organization, facility, agency or program. We advise against leaving comments that include personal identification of anyone at any organization or program listed on this website.
All comments posted in the forum are stored in our database, even after "deletion," and may be archived elsewhere. Our web logs and other records are stored indefinitely. We make good faith efforts to store all information in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public but we cannot guarantee complete security.
The Way We Use Information
We use the non-private information you provide to publicly share with other parents and guardians seeking quality child care. This information is only intended as a guide in helping you select the best child care possible for you and your family. We encourage you to use as many aspects of research as possible to collectively help you make this decision.
You may register with our website if you would like to receive our newsletters as well as updates on our new services. Information you submit on our website will not be used for this purpose unless you fill out the registration form.
Our Commitment to Data Security
We take necessary steps in order to protect personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Keep in mind that Internet transmission is not always completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the sites may not be secure.
Our Commitment to Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect personally identifiable information or maintain this information on our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13. However, we may collect generalized, non-private information about children and babies from their guardians or parents in the comments forum. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the internet and the information they disclose to websites.
