Toy Industry Association, Inc. (TIA™) is committed to providing a safe cyber environment for parents, children and people who are interested in the U. S. toy industry. We respect your privacy, and would like you to know what is done with any information collected through our websites:
BROWSING TIA’S WEB PROPERTIES
(e.g., ToyAssociation.org, ToyIndustryFoundation.org, ToyAwards.org, ToyInfo.org, and ToyFairNY.org/ToyFairNY.com)
Our sites log certain visitor activity (i.e., how many total visitors we have, what the most popular pages are, etc.). However, that tracking is NOT done in such a way that it identifies the individual visitor … with one exception: In order to conduct the online nomination and voting process for the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards, we use personal "cookies" to identify and monitor individuals and their voting activities on the ToyAwards.org site.
INFORMATION YOU GIVE US
All personal information collected by TIA™ is securely stored, and will be used solely for identification and/or purposes stated when the information is requested. TIA™ will not sell, distribute or otherwise make available to third parties any information we collect on this site. Children, as always, are encouraged to check with their parents before providing any information on any website they visit.
TIA™ aggregates information from all of its visitors into log files in order to measure the total number of visitors to the websites and how many visit each web page. This helps TIA™ to learn which areas are most popular for expansion, and which are least popular for reduction or elimination. TIA™ does not belong to banner ad networks and does not access or allow access by other organizations. Currently TIA™ uses Google Urchin software to collect information about visits to our websites.
Because your privacy is important to us, Google Urchin conducts its business under the following principles:
- Principle 1: No Collection of Personal Information
WebTrends does not collect personal information such as name, age, phone number or mailing address from visitors to our websites.
- Principle 2: No Combination of Browsing and Web Traffic Information with Personal Information
Since WebTrends does not collect any personal information, we do not combine traffic analysis information with personal information such as name, age, phone number or mailing address.
- Principle 3: No Aggregation of Individual Visitor Traffic Patterns across Multiple Sites
WebTrends does not collect individual profile information for visitors across multiple sites and does not aggregate information from any other sources on browsing patterns of individual visitors across multiple sites.
- Principle 4: Use of Anonymous IP Address
IP addresses are recorded by every site on the Internet. WebTrends collects this information as well, but does so exclusively for the following uses: (1) anonymous statistical purposes; or (2) administration of our websites and servers, and to improve our services.
- Principle 6: No Individual Profiling
WebTrends does not create individual profiles for visitors. Unlike other tracking services, we do not have a database of individual profiles for each visitor. WebTrends collects data in aggregate form and data is not recorded or stored for individual visitors.
