Effective as of: February 4, 2019

This Privacy Policy discloses the privacy practices for the www.brightstartonline.com site and various related services (together referred to as the “Site”).  The Kangaroo Pouch, Inc. d/b/a Bright Start Child Development Center, a California corporation, the provider of the Site (referred to as “us” or “we”), is committed to protecting your privacy online.
By accessing or using our Site, you agree to be bound by all of its terms and conditions, including this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not access or use this Site.
We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time.  Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by means including, but not limited to, posting the revised Privacy Policy on this page.  You are responsible for reviewing this Site and Privacy Policy periodically for any modifications.

  1.  What information do we collect from you and how do we use it?

In order to better serve you, we collect two types of information about our users: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information.
Personal Information.  Personal Information refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are.  For example, our online inquiry forms may ask you to voluntarily provide contact information such as your name, email address, phone number, and mailing address (the “Personal Information”).  We do not collect any Personal Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us.  Your Personal Information is used to provide services to you.  We may use Personal Information to deliver information to you and to contact you regarding administrative notices.  We may also use your Personal Information to resolve disputes and troubleshoot problems.
Non-Personal Information.  Non-personal information refers to information that we gather based upon how you use or visit our Site that does not by itself identify you specifically.  For example, we may collect the website’s URL that you just came from, what browser you are using, and your IP address.  Also, when you use our Site, through a mobile device (such as a mobile phone or tablet), we may receive information about your device through its unique device identification number.  We use Non-Personal Information to diagnose problems with our servers and software, to administer our Site and to gather general demographic information.

  1.  With whom do we share your information?

We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personal Information to others.
If we believe the release of your Personal Information is necessary to respond to legal process, to investigate or remedy potential violations of our policies, or to protect the rights, property, and safety of others, we may share your Personal Information as permitted or required by any applicable law, rule, or regulation.  This includes exchanging information with other entities for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.
If we reorganize or sell all or a portion of our assets, undergo a merger, or are acquired by another entity, we may transfer your Personal Information to the successor entity.  If we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, your Personal Information would be an asset transferred or acquired by a third party.  You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that the transferee may decline honor commitments we made in this Privacy Policy.
We are not responsible for the actions of third parties with whom you share personal or sensitive data, and we have no authority to manage or control third-party solicitations.  If you no longer wish to receive correspondence, emails or other communications from third parties, you are responsible for contacting the third party directly.

  1.  How to opt-out or change your Personal Information?

If you indicated upon registration that you are interested in receiving offers or information from us, we may occasionally send you email about products and services that we feel may be of interest to you.  You may opt out of email marketing by using the unsubscribe link in such email.
You may also correct or change your Personal Information and privacy preferences by contacting us by email at mail@brightstartonline.com.  Please include your name, address, and/or email address when you contact us.  While we will strive to comply with your requests, please note that we may not be able to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.

  1.  What security precautions are in place to protect your information?

The importance of security for your Personal Information is of utmost concern to us.  Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  You can be assured that we use commercially reasonable means consistent with industry standards to protect your Personal Information.

  1. Do we use “cookies”?

When you use our Site, we may store cookies on your computer to facilitate and customize your use of our Site.  You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our Site may not work properly in that case.

  1.  What should you know about third party sites accessible from our Site?

Our Site may contain links to other third party websites. Other websites accessible through our Site have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices.  Please consult each Site’s privacy policy.  We have no control over such third party sites and are not responsible for the policies, practices, or content of third parties.

  1. California Privacy Rights.

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the “Shine The Light” law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about categories of personal information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared personal information in the immediately preceding calendar year.  If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request to us using the contact information provided below.

If you are under 18 years of age, reside in California, and have a registered account with the Site, you have the right to request removal of unwanted data that you publicly post on the Site.  To request removal of such data, please contact us using the contact information provided below, and include the email address associated with your account and a statement that you reside in California.  We will make sure the data is not publicly displayed on the Site, but please be aware that the data may not be completely or comprehensively removed from our systems.

We do not knowingly solicit information from or market to children under the age of 13.  If you become aware of any data we have collected from children under age 13, please contact us using the contact information provided below.
