Privacy Policy for Children Under 13


The basic principles of this Children’s Privacy Policy are safety, security, and appropriate use. Parents, please read through this policy and note your role in ensuring a positive and safe experience for your child.

About Mr. Lewis:

Mr. Lewis created, maintains and operates the “IGrewUpOnAFarm.com” web site (this “Site”) as a complement to his non-fiction children’s book, I Grew Up On A Farm, to provide ancillary learning materials and to promote the book in general to parents, teachers, librarians, and any other interested parties.

Purpose and Scope of this Children's Privacy Policy

IGrewUpOnAFarm.com is designed to serve educators and learners of all ages. We have adopted this Children's Privacy Policy to protect the privacy of those learners. We believe that the best way to protect children is to provide the means to control what information is collected from their children, how it is used, and with whom it is shared.

This Children's Privacy Policy describes what personal information we collect from children who use this Site and how we use and share that information. It also describes the choices parents have about the ways we collect, use, and share their children's information.

The term "personal information" refers to information that identifies any person or particular child, alone or in combination with any other information that may be available to us.

What Personal Information Do We Collect About Children?

We do not collect any personal information from any child under 13, and in fact, have constructed a separate contact page for those children under 13.

Information Sent to Us by the Child's Web Browser. We collect information that is sent to us automatically by your child's web browser. This information typically includes your child's computer's IP address, the address of the web page your child was visiting when he or she accessed our Site, the name of the operating system (such as Windows or Macintosh) installed on your child's computer, the name and version of the browser (such as Netscape or Internet Explorer) the child is using, and the date and time of the child's visit. The information we receive depends on the settings on your child's web browser. Please check your child's browser if you want to learn what information the browser sends or how to change the settings.

The information provided by the child's browser does not identify the child personally. We use this non-personal information primarily to create statistics that help us improve our Site and make it more compatible with the technology used by our visitors.

We do not link browser information to information that identifies your child personally. However, if we suspect criminal activity, we might share our server logs -- which contain visitors' IP addresses -- with the appropriate investigative authorities, who could use then use that information to trace and identify individuals.

Assigning a number to your child's computer permits us to follow an unidentified user as he or she moves from page to page. A session cookie expires after the user closes the browser.

Generally, we use session cookies to collect information about the ways visitors use our Site, which pages they visit, which links they use, and how long they stay on each page.
