At Kateandmimmim.ca, we understand and appreciate the concerns that parents and families may have with regard to information gathered about visitors to our website. This Privacy Policy describes Nerd Corps Entertainment Inc's ("Nerd Corps", "Kateandmimmim.ca ", "we" or "our") privacy practices and procedures. The Kateandmimmim.ca website gathers certain personal information from its visitors and uses that information solely for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy. Personal information is information about an individual. Examples include name, age, street address, email address, phone number, birthday, and pictures.

By using our website, you agree to the collection and use of your personal information by Nerd Corps. Please take the time to read this document to learn more about our information practices, including the type of information we gather, how and for what purposes such information is used, to whom the information is disclosed, how it is safeguarded and how you can access your personal information in our possession.

The Information We May Collect and How We Use It

Nerd Corps collects personal and electronic information for the following reasons:

  • To provide the services offered to you on our website (for example, to allow you to subscribe to our website and to verify your subscription).

  • To design, maintain, market, improve and provide products and services on our website.

  • For promotional activities, including contests.

Any personal identifiable information collected from our members is for Kateandmimmim.ca purposes only (e.g. contest fulfillment, registration, etc.). All stored information, including personal information, received from you remains the exclusive property of Nerd Corps (i.e., upon submission, title transfers to Nerd Corps). We will never sell or give any of this information to third parties, unless otherwise disclosed in this privacy policy. We may transfer personal information to Nerd Corps' third party service providers who agree to maintain the confidentiality of such transferred personal information and are prohibited from using such information for any other purpose. Should surveys ever be offered on Kateandmimmim.ca, we may share aggregated info collected from those surveys, however specific members are never identified. We will also disclose personal information if required by law or regulation. For example, we will disclose personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid enquiry or order, or to an investigative body in the case of a breach of an agreement or contravention of law. We will obtain your consent before using or disclosing your personal information in any manner other than as described in this Privacy Policy.

Online Purchases

If you order merchandise through the website(s), you will need to provide your full name, billing and mailing address, email address, telephone number and credit card number. Before processing the order, Nerd Corps will verify the validity of your or the purchaser's credit card. Billing information is stored for as long as it is required to process the transaction.

Personal Information For Contests

An eligible user may enter Nerd Corps contests through our website Kateandmimmim.ca. On the online entry form, we ask for personal information such as your age, email address and phone number. This personal information is collected, used and/or disclosed solely for the purpose of awarding contest prizes, tracking compliance with the official rules and regulations and for internal feedback purposes. Parental consent for entrants under the age of majority in their country of residence is verified prior to delivery of prizes. Nerd Corps only uses and discloses a contest winner's name and photograph after receiving prior written consent from the winner (or their parent/guardian) and the appropriate release forms are fully completed by a parent/guardian and returned to Nerd Corps.
Nerd Corps sometimes uses a third party company (Nerd Corps' contest fulfillment house) to draw winners' names, contact winners and send prizing to winners. The personal information collected by this company is solely for the purpose of the contest fulfillment and this company is contractually obligated to maintain the private and/or confidential nature of the collected information.
Contest entry names and information are seen only by Nerd Corps and Nerd Corps' contest fulfillment house. Such information is stored in a secure location and only accessible for as long as is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is collected, and it is destroyed, in a manner which ensures that the private and/or confidential nature of the information is preserved, typically within 60 days after those purposes have been fulfilled.

Contacting Customer Service

If you telephone, write or email us to comment on our services or website, we will retain the information for our records during a certain period of time. Disclosure of your name and personal information is voluntary in these circumstances.

Online Polls and Surveys

Occasionally Kateandmimmim.ca visitors may be invited to voluntarily answer polls or survey questions that may be used in conjunction with sponsors/business partners. Be assured that in these poll and survey situations only non-identifiable, general information such as gender, age and postal code is collected. The information collected ensures that visitors remain anonymous.

Online Safety Notes For Kids

The web is a great place to hang out, to find out stuff, and to share comments and ideas with people who are into the same kind of stuff you are. But the net isn't always a safe place - so we've put together some tips for you to read that will help you handle situations if they come up. First, don't give out personal information without asking your parents. Personal information can mean:

  • YOUR NAME

  • YOUR ADDRESS

  • YOUR PHONE NUMBER

  • YOUR MOM OR DAD'S NAME

  • THE NAME OF YOUR SCHOOL

  • YOUR TEACHER OR YOUR FRIEND'S NAMES

Secondly, if you run into something on the Internet that makes you uncomfortable - whether it's on the web or it's sent to you - tell your mom or dad, or an adult you can talk to, and get them to deal with it. Never agree to meet anyone you have "met" online.
Never send your picture over the Internet without checking with your parents or another adult. Don't answer mean messages, or rude ones, or messages asking for personal information. If you do get a message like that tell your parents right away, so they can help you deal with it. Make sure you obey the rules that your parents have set out for you. Make up a cool nickname for when you join a chat or a game online. Never tell anyone your real name or your password. Get your parents to read the safety for parent's tips.

Online Safety Notes For Parents

The web is a great place for kids to hang out and learn about topics that are of interest to them. However, there are areas on the Internet that are not appropriate for children. The guidelines we have drawn up are a starting point for parents of children who surf. The most important thing is to be aware of what your children are doing online. This may mean surfing with your children, or talking to them about the sites that they like or that they have recently discovered on the web.
Make surfing a Kateandmimmim.ca activity, particularly with young children. Set ground rules, so each person knows what is expected of them. For example, you could go through the safety tips together so everyone understands the whats and the whys.
There are software programs that allow parents to block certain websites from their kids. Some programs are more flexible than others, so you may want to shop around to find one that you're comfortable with.

Other Sites

Please keep in mind that this Privacy Policy applies to Nerd Corps websites only. Occasionally, we may have links to other sites, including those of sponsors and partners. And although we do our best to ensure that these third parties share our views about privacy protection and safety, we don't have control over how they collect and use personal information from visitors. Therefore, we are not responsible or liable for any personal information you provide such third parties.
