POLICY REGARDING CHILDREN
Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, or for purposes of facilitating internal operations of the Site, we do not collect information about you or your child when you visit our Site unless you choose to provide information to us. When the Site needs to collect information about a child under 13 years old, COPPA required information and instructions will be provided by the specific Site page that collects information about the child. The Site page will specify exactly what the information will be used for, who will see it, and how long it will be kept.
There are several exceptions that permit collection of a child's email address without receiving parental consent in advance:
PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Automatically Generated Information. Whenever you visit the Site, we receive and store information about that visit. For example, we obtain information about you and your Web browser, including:
There are companies that provide tools that allow you to visit websites anonymously. While use of these tools may prevent us from providing you with personalized service, you should be aware that this option is available.
Information You Provide. When you visit our Site, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information in order to take advantage of the products and services offered through the Site, including without limitation: your name, address, birth date, telephone and fax numbers, email address, credit card information, and communication preferences. Of course, we also collect the information that you choose to provide when you submit a transmission or other materials to the Site. You may always choose not to provide the information we request; however, you may then be unable to take advantage of the features and services we offer on our Site. If you are under 13 years of age, you and your parent must review the section below titled “Policy Regarding Children”, which will govern your provision of personally identifiable information.
Information from other Sources. From time to time we may purchase or otherwise acquire information about you from other sources and add it to our database, including updated address information, customer lists, email address lists, etc.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We understand that your personally identifiable information is private and confidential. That’s why we want you to know what information we need to offer our services to you, and how we use that information. We use information about you in order to provide the services described in our Site, and for internal operations. In addition, we may share customer information with our affiliates and as described below.
No Sale of Personal Information. Be assured that we will not sell your personal information to others except in connection with a sale of our assets, or a change in control transaction involving LAIKA.
Statistical Information. LAIKA shares some information about its visitors with business partners, sponsors and other third parties; however, that information is statistical in nature, it is aggregated, and does not identify specific individuals.
Emails. From time to time, we may send you email messages, to keep you apprised of your, Site developments, to inform you of new offers, and to deliver email newsletters to which you have subscribed. We may use a bulk email service to distribute that information. Included in each of these messages are simple instructions on how to remove yourself from these mailings if you do not wish to receive them in the future.
Mailings. If you supply us with your postal address, you may receive periodic mailings from LAIKA, with information on new products and services, or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
COOKIES AND WEB BEACONS
Do Not Track Signals
Some web browsers have “do not track settings.” These are not yet uniform across the industry and our Sites are not built to respond to those browser signals. We do not participate in practices known as “behavioral advertising” or tracking users across other websites. As such, we do not participate in the behavioral advertising do not track programs. If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com, or by phone at 503-225-1130.

Parental Consent. When your child is asked to provide personally identifiable information, we will first collect your (the parent's) email address and use this information to contact you (the parent) by email to notify you that your child wishes to provide personally identifiable information to us, describe the purposes for which the personally identifiable information is collected, and provide you an opportunity to opt-out of the collection of the information. The email will include details on how the parent may (i) provide LAIKA with consent; (ii) prohibit LAIKA from any further contact with the child; or (iii) delete the child's personally identifiable information. You have the option to consent to the collection and use of your child's personally identifiable information without consenting to our disclosure of such information to unaffiliated third parties.

Note to Parents and Legal Guardians. Please contact LAIKA at any time regarding privacy questions or concerns, or to request to review what personally identifiable information we have collected from a child. Parents may also contact us at any time to request that we delete the personally identifiable information of a child or a parent and/or refuse to permit further collection or use of a child's information. We will take steps to ensure that any person contacting us for a child's information is that child's parent or guardian. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen other than in a legally permissible situation, we will delete the information from our records as soon as we discover it.
