What personally identifiable information is collected about applicants to either or both of the Park Slope Parents Yahoo! Groups?
- "Personally identifiable information" is non-anonymous information such as your name, phone number, credit card information, address or email address — anything that could identify you personally.
- When you agree to participate in the Park Slope Parents community, you grant us permission to publish your advice or recommendations to the web site anonymously. This has been our practice from the start to help facilitate access to specific information more easily than via the Yahoo! Group archives. If you do not wish your advice or recommendations to be shared, please reply privately and indicate that you do not wish your reply to be included as part of a summary. You retain the copyright to your posts and can request to have your reviews or recommendations removed.
- By joining Park Slope Parents, you have agreed that published content should not be reproduced (or linked to) without permission of the author; nevertheless, you have also acknowledged that you are aware that because the Park Slope Parents website and Yahoo! Groups are public fora, any information posted therein may appear elsewhere.

What personally identifiable information is collected about visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com?
- Visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com are not required to provide personally identifiable information to use the website. However, there are two instances in which Park Slope Parents LLC (PSP) may receive your name, email address, or other information that identifies you personally.
- The first is if you choose to register at our website. Registration at our website requires the entry of such personally-identifiable information, which is transferred to PSP and kept on our servers. In such cases, we keep your information confidential and use it to establish a membership for you (establishing, for example, that you are indeed a parent in Park Slope, Brooklyn and the surrounding neighborhoods). In the future we may use such personally-identifiable information to customize the information that appears on the website you visit (displaying, for example, only the childcare options that serve your zip code once you identify your location). Your information will not be shared or resold to any other company without your consent.
- The second is if you click a link on our website asking a question or sending a comment. In such cases, your email application will likely include your email address and may include other personally-identifiable information in a query sent to PSP, including your name. In instances in which PSP receives such information, we keep it confidential and use it strictly to send you information or answer your concerns regarding PSP.
What other information is collected about visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com?
- PSP receives standard web log information: cookies, referrer IDs, IP addresses, system information and other similar data.
- A "referrer ID" is information from your web browser which shows us what URL you linked from. This allows us to see what websites link to www.parkslopeparents.com. This information is automatically gathered by our server.
- IP addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. They are automatically gathered by our web server when you visit www.parkslopeparents.com.
- System information we gather from our web logs includes time of your visit, type of browser you used, and the operating system, platform and CPU speed of your computer. This kind of anonymous information is routinely sent by your browser when you connect to websites. PSP uses this information only for broad demographic statistics. For example: it tells us what percentage of our users employ, for example, Firefox browsers versus Internet Explorer.
- PSP will never intentionally send you spam.
- In an effort to be compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, it is the policy of PSP to collect NO personally identifiable information from children. All individuals are therefore required to be 14 years or older to submit their names, email addresses, or other information at our website.
