Privacy Statement

Sirius Publications(tm) has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The statement has been approved by TrustE. WE DO NOT DISCLOSE/SELL/GIVE CUSTOMER'S PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION OR EMAIL ADDRESSES TO OUTSIDE PARTIES. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site: Sirius Publications(tm)

Information Automatically Logged

We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site.  We may also collect statistical data of what area visitors are from.  This is used to determine our site's audience and effectiveness.

Newsletter

We collect your email address if you want to be included in the newsletter mailing.  We also give you the option to tell us something about yourself  (i.e. how you found us.)  The information is collected through a third-party automated mailing list/newsletter service. Your e-mail address and information will only be seen by Sirius Staff, and will only be used to send you the newsletter.  However, the automated listing may collect information such as demographics (whether readers are male or female) in order to target the ads that appear at the top of the newsletter. These ads keep our newsletter a free service (the ad space is sold by the company providing the service.)  The outside company and advertisers will NOT see your email address or personally identifiable information.

Advertisers

We may use an outside ad company to display ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. While we use cookies in other parts of our Web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad company, and we do not have access to this information.

Order Forms

Our site uses a secure order form for customers to request information, products, and services. We collect contact information (like their email address), and financial information (like their account or credit card numbers). Contact information from the order forms is used to get in touch with the visitor when necessary.  It will not be given to outside parties. Information about security of transactions is made available to our customers.

Contests

We run contests on our site in which we ask visitors for contact information (like email address).  Contact information from the contests is used to get in touch with the visitor regarding the contest when necessary.

Children's Guidelines

We care about children and understand that they have special privacy needs. Therefore, we have adopted the following privacy policy regarding children. Please note that since there is no way to verify age of the customer, the policy is qualified with the term 'knowingly':

  1. We will NOT knowingly collect, use, or distribute to third parties personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent.
  2. We will NOT give the child access to unmonitored chat rooms, message boards, email accounts, or other services that would give the child the ability to publicly post or otherwise distribute personally identifiable information without prior verifiable parental consent
  3. When verifiable parental consent is not obtained, we will only use the online contact information (such as email) to:
    1. Respond directly to the child's request on a one-time basis and not use that information to re-contact the child for other purposes.
    2. Request the name or online contact information of a parent for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing parental notification.
    3. Respond more than once directly to a specific request from a child (such as in the case where a child requests a newsletter subscription) and not used to re-contact the child for other purposes. We will use our best efforts to provide parental notification, which will include the nature and intended use as well as an opportunity for the parent to prevent the use of the information and participation in the activity.
  4. We will NOT entice the child to divulge more information than is needed to participate in any activity, game, or service.
  5. We will provide the parent a description of the specific types of a personally identifiable information collected from their child upon request. We will allow the parent to refuse further use or future online collection of personally identifiable information and provide a way for a parent to obtain any personally identifiable information collected from their child.
  6. We will provide notice to children in age appropriate terms of what personally identifiable information is to be collected.
  7. We will NOT provide any links to Web sites that are unsuitable for children.
  8. We will encourage children to get their parent's permission before sharing personal information online.
