The following privacy policy explains our information collection and use practices online for children under the age of thirteen. We ask that you take the time to review our policy so that you can know exactly how we collect information from kids, what we do with information that we collect and with whom we share such information. If you ever have any questions or concerns about this policy, please contact us.

What Information We Collect From Children Under Thirteen:

Websites owned by ILT Publishing, including, generally limits its collection of information from kids to non-personal information from the computer used to access the site (e.g. "cookies"). However, book orders will require entry of personal information and credit card information which would need to be information actually provided by an adult.

However, from time to time we may request limited personally identifiable information from kids in order to offer promotions or other activities such as newsletters. If the activity involves only a one-time contact with your child, we will request only that the child provide his or her e-mail address and, sometimes, provide a first name. However, if the activity might involve more than one contact with your child (such as for a newsletter), we will also request that your child provide your e-mail address. will use your e-mail address to send you an e-mail letting you know about your child's contact and submission, and giving you an opportunity to opt your child out of participation. Our e-mail will include details on how you may request that ILT Publishing delete your and your child's information, and prohibit ILT Publishing from any further contact with your child. Please note: If we do not receive a response from you requesting that we delete your child's information, your consent to your child's requested activity will be presumed.

We may also offer online postcards or e-mail messages that kids can send to their friends. In order to send these postcards or e-mail messages, ILT Publishing will ask the child to submit either his or her e-mail address or first name, and the e-mail address of the recipient. If the child is sending an email to one of the characters from "The Adventures of Tommi Lance," and wishes a personal reply, his or her email address and first name are required. Information collected for postcards or e-mails will only be used to send the requested postcard or e-mail, and all information collected for the purpose of sending a postcard or e-mail is deleted immediately once the postcard or e-mail is sent or replied to.

If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from a user under the age of thirteen, other than in a legally permissible situation, we will delete the information from our records as soon as we discover it. As a parent or guardian, you may exercise your right to have your and your child's information deleted at any time. Additionally, you may review your child's personally identifiable information at any time.
