Privacy Policy

We make the following assurances to visitors of our website.

The Pocket Snails® website has been designed to provide our visitors with information about the Pocket Snails products and our company, Soaring Star Productions, LLC. We do not promote or endorse any other companies or any other products other than those produced by Soaring Star Productions, LLC.

We are respectful of, and committed to, protecting your privacy. At Soaring Star Productions, LLC, we especially recognize the unique and sensitive issues surrounding the privacy and protection of children who use our website. We consider this website appealing to children due to the very nature of the products that we produce and sell, the colors used, the activities suggested and the graphics contained within our site. Our website is, therefore, designed to comply with, and adhere to, the policies set out in the April 21st 2000 Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), and the Children's Advertising Review Unit (CARU). Both COPPA and CARU set out guidelines for websites that: appeal to children, are geared towards children, and who may collect personally identifiable information about children under 13. In keeping with those guidelines we do NOT:

Additionally:
Occasionally, we may offer prizes or promotions via a third party, such as magazines. In these circumstances, we will comply with the rules and regulations and the privacy policy of that third party and your information, if sent to them, is under their control, and not ours. Therefore we cannot be held responsible in any way for any misuse, loss or breech of your privacy by that third party. Please review the Privacy Policy of the third party who is offering our products for awards.

We do have online contact email facilities, and children may decide to contact us via these emails. We strongly encourage you to be involved with your child's online activities and to monitor their communications online. We do request that children under 13 seek and obtain the permission of a parent or legal guardian before contacting us. We may respond to online requests, questions or enquiries if connected to the Pocket Snails or to our company, Soaring Star Productions, LLC, at our sole discretion. We absolutely will not engage in any email conversation that is inappropriate, misleads, and/or is designed to entice a child to reveal information about themselves or others, or encourages a breech of any of the policies we adhere to.

We will do our very best to make sure that any links guide you to safe places for both you and your child to visit. However, we cannot guarantee the content, and neither are we liable for, the content of any other website that links to or from our website. Please see our Terms of Use for more information.

As a parent, you have the right to ask to review any personal information about your child that may have been collected by us via mail-in entry forms for promotional reasons as set out above, and you may request the immediate and complete disposal of this information in a prompt and confidential manner by us, if indeed we still have that information, since mail-in entries from children under 13 years of age are disposed of immediately after prizes are awarded. At Soaring Star Productions, LLC, we respect your rights as a parent and will honor any requests to review personal information about your child. You may also instruct us not to collect your child's information in the future. If you are a parent or legal guardian and wish to exercise this right, we will need your request in writing, including signature and printed name. Please send your requests to:

Ordering Online


Any personal information given to us, for example, during online ordering, will be held in the utmost confidentiality and security, and we are committed to maintaining this policy to protect our users. Online orders must be made by persons aged 18 or older. We are committed to protecting your privacy, and as stated above, your information will not be given away freely or otherwise to any third party unless the third party is directly connected with fulfilling your order (for example, a shipping company to ship your order will need your name and address), or unless we are required to do so by law, court order or subpoena; to enforce our Terms of Use, if being violated or abused; or to protect the safety and security of our other users, especially children under 13. We may use this information to send you promotions, information, coupons, news about our products, new releases, changes in our company etc, unless you specifically opt-out of receiving any communication from us.

Please be advised that we are unable to assure, and neither are we liable for, any infringement or violation of your privacy or personal details (including, but not limited to, your financial details), or the infringement of your child's privacy, on any other website other than the Pocket Snails or the Soaring Star Productions, LLC website, even if that website links to or from our website. Indeed, once you leave our website, even if you follow a link from our website, other than to soaringstar.com, our privacy policy no longer applies. Please review our Terms of Use for more details.


You are strongly advised to protect your personal details, and in particular that of your child/children, and information including, but not limited to, your financial details and information, when dealing with any company online or otherwise. Whilst we maintain the highest degree of integrity when handling your personal details, we advise that you read and review the privacy policies of any website you have dealings with, since we are in no way liable whatsoever for any incidents arising from your dealings with any third party websites or business.

Cookies

Like many companies, we use a common technology called "cookies", which identifies you by a unique set of numbers, and is used during the ordering process. It does not retrieve information from your hard-drive or retain any personal information over and above that which is required to fulfill your order.

Security

We maintain the appropriate measures to protect the misuse, loss or alteration of personal information under our control. We employ SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), which encrypts sensitive information that you input during ordering. Soaring Star Productions, LLC, will periodically review our security measures and will update and enhance them as options become available. However, as with all websites, we are unable to offer any warranty or guarantee of 100% security of any information you transmit to us at our website.
