We may share aggregated demographic information with our partners and sponsors. This is not linked to any personally identifiable information.
We may share your email address with our partners to offer you programs and services we are jointly promoting. Please note, however, if such communications include a link to a vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page and you submit personal information to such vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page, then the privacy policies and practices of such vendor’s website or a co-branded partner page governs the use of your personal information.
We may release information provided by a user if a subpoena, order, or demand from a governmental agency or court requires disclosure. We may also release information provided by a user if Parent Day Out in its sole discretion determines that release may assist in protecting the health, safety, or welfare of another. However, Parent Day Out has no obligation to exercise such discretion.
Parent Day Out Inc. may deposit cookies on users’ hard drives. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. By setting a cookie on our site, a user does not have to log in a password more than once and saves time while on our site. Users who reject the cookie may still use ParentDayOut.com, but they may be limited in some areas of our site.
Cookies can also enable us to better understand the interests of our users to enhance their experience. Some of the information about how our users experience our site, such as page views and specific pages visited, may be logged by a third-party marketing company on our behalf, using cookies and Web beacons. If used, web beacons help us understand information such as what browsers our users have so that we are able to develop our site to best support our users. We control how this data may and may not be used.
Parent Day Out may also work with third-party media measurement services that enable advertisers, publishers and agencies to view audience reports for websites. They use certain data, including IP address and information from cookies to aggregate Internet activity to produce these reports and analysis.
Parent Day Out may also work with third-party companies to serve ads when you visit www.ParentDayOut.com. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to www.ParentDayOut.com in order to provide advertisements on www.ParentDayOut.com, other websites and other forms of media about goods and services that may be of interest to you.
We use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track users’ movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Parent Day Out Inc. is notresponsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. When users leave our site, we encourage them to be aware of and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.
From time to time, we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, phone number, and address), and demographic information (such as ZIP code and child’s grade level).
Survey information will be used for the purposes improving the use and satisfaction of this site. The information you provide in response to survey questions may be shared, but only in the aggregate or anonymously, with advertisers and partners, unless we notify you otherwise at the time of collection.
Email Referral Service
If users elect to use our email referral service (“Share Profile”), for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend’s name and email address. Parent Day Out Inc. may automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site.
Parent Day Out Inc. has implemented commercially reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. When users submit sensitive information via the website, Parent Day Out Inc. uses commercially reasonable efforts to protect their information both online and offline. However, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your personal information for improper purposes. Thus, you acknowledge that you provide your personal information at your own risk.
If and when a form asks users to enter sensitive information, that information will be encrypted and protected with encryption software called SSL. Learn more about SSL.
While we use SSL encryption to protect sensitive information online, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to protect personal user information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job will be granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, all employees are kept up to date on our security and privacy practices. The servers that are used to store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Compromise of Security
In the event that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, Parent Day Out Inc. will make a best effort to notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in this Privacy Statement, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
Correction / Updating Personal Information
If a user’s personally identifiable information changes or if a user no longer desires our service, we will endeavor to provide a way to correct, update or remove that user’s personal data provided to us.
Notification of Changes
When you choose a password, the password is stored on a protected Parent Day Out Inc. server. However, because Internet communications are generally not secure, you should be aware that when you send your password across the Internet to us, there is a possibility that an experienced hacker could intercept your password. However, we have no evidence to date that password information presents a serious security threat to warrant using a secure shell for this transaction.

Parent Day Out does not control the third parties’ use of information.
