A. General. We at Kahani Inc. are determined to ensure
that our visitors, customers and friends will have
a fun experience while visiting this Web site, without
sacrificing their peace of mind as to the protection
of their identity and other personal information. This
policy statement tells you how we collect information
on you, how it's used, and the steps we are taking
to protect it from any unauthorized use.
2. CHILDREN'S ONLINE PRIVACY
A. No Information Sought. Because many visitors to this
site are children, we take the utmost care to make certain
that our content is appropriate for kids of all ages.
We do not ask children to disclose more personal information
than is necessary for them to participate in a particular
activity (e.g., normally just their e-mail address),
and we take steps to prevent children from posting contact
information. Children should obtain permission from a
parent or guardian before contacting Kahani Inc. in any
regard, especially before entering any personal information
(which we expressly discourage) or requesting information.
Kahani Inc. does not permit children under the age of
13 to place any orders at the Subscription Shop or communicate
with us through this Web site without the express written
permission of their parent or legal guardian. If Kahani Inc.
has any reason to believe that a visitor under the age
of 13 is posting information, or attempting to purchase
merchandise from the Subscription Shop they will be asked
to have their parent or legal guardian send an e-mail
or fax to us to confirm authorization.
B. COPPA. Kahani Inc. does not solicit personally identifiable
information from children. The Children's Online Privacy
Protection Act ("COPPA") requires Web sites
that cater to children ? or know that a visitor to their
site is a child under the age of 13 ? to follow specific
Federal Trade Commission rules. In our attempt to fully
comply with these rules, we would like you to know that:
1. Personally identifiable offline contact information
will not be collected without prior parental consent.
2. Personal online contact information will not be solicited
and collected without prior parental consent or parental
notification, which will include an opportunity for the
parent to prevent use of the information and the child's
participation in the activity.
3. Kahani Inc. will not entice any child or adult, regardless
of their age, to divulge more personal information than
is needed to use the site or participate in any online
activity by offering any special game, prize, incentive
or other similar activity.
4. We provide only one online service to children: e-mails
to the editor. Our readers, especially children, are
given the opportunity to send comments to the editor
regarding Kahani. We read all e-mails and delete any
personally identifiable information from the letters.
These letters may then be posted on our site or even
published in the magazine. Each posting, whether online
or in the magazine, is accompanied by the child's first
name, the last name initial, state and age. If a child
e-mails a question or a comment to the editor that cannot
be answered in a public forum, we will keep the child's
e-mail address until we are able to respond to his or
her question/comment. Once we have responded, we will
delete the child's e-mail address from our site and databases.
5. In no case will any personally identifiable information
be distributed to third parties or otherwise posted,
EXCEPT in the event of a business transfer, merger, or
buyout of Kahani Inc. (see below for more details).
C. No Marketing to Children. Kahani Inc. will not contact
children under 13 about special offers or for marketing
purposes without parental consent.
D. No Disclosure. Kahani Inc. will not send personally
identifiable information about a child to other companies
or people, UNLESS we are required to respond to subpoenas,
court orders or legal process - to the extent permitted
E. Removal Requests. Parents or legal guardians are welcome
to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to request
deletion of any information we may have on their child.
F. Retention of Information. Please note that information
about a child may remain in back-up storage for some
period of time after a request for deletion of that child's
account. This may be the case even though no information
about that account remains in our active user databases.
A. Information Required. Visitors who place a Kahani
subscription order from the Subscription Shop will be
required to provide their full name, billing and mailing
addresses, e-mail address, telephone number and a credit
card number. If the order is being shipped to a third
party, we will also need the recipient's name and mailing
address. Before collecting information in connection
with a Subscription Shop order, we will verify the validity
of the purchaser's credit card. On a rare occasion, we
might solicit additional voluntary information regarding
shoppers' personal shopping preferences.
If you give us your contact information, such as postal
address, e-mail address or telephone number, you may
receive information from us on special offers, renewal
notices or any problems arising from your subscription,
such as nondelivery. We do not share our customers' contact
information with third parties.
B. Children and the Subscription Shop. Children under
the age of 13 are prohibited from ordering anything at
all from our Subscription Shop without the express written
permission of their parent or legal guardian.
4. BUSINESS TRANSFER
A. General. In the event that Kahani Inc. or
substantially all of its assets are acquired by a third
information will be one of the transferred assets. However,
use of any information collected on children under the
age of 13, if among the transferred assets should such
a transaction take place, will only be used in accordance
with the policies set forth herein in compliance with
