What personally identifiable information is collected about visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com?
"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. Visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com are not required to provide personally identifiable information to use the Website.
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 then 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 client will likely include your email address and may include other personally-identifiable information in a query sent to PSP. 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.
PSP and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act:
In an effort to be compliant with COPPA, 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.
What anonymous information is collected about visitors to www.parkslopeparents.com?
"Anonymous Information" means information that cannot be traced back to you as a specific individual. PSP receives standard web log information: cookies, referrer IDs, IP addresses and system information. None of this information identifies you personally — it is anonymous — and will never be combined or linked to any Personal Information.

What is a referrer ID?
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. Referrer IDs contain no information that identifies you personally.
What is an IP address?
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. PSP will not use your IP address to attempt to identify your personal information.
What is system information?
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. You will not be personally identified by this information.
