CERTAIN THIRD PARTY TRANSACTIONS
Nehst may disclose personal information to third parties we engage to assist us in providing you certain services. For example, we may hire a shipping company to help us deliver our products or services to you. We may also use a third party to process online transactions and credit card payments, provide products, advertising, marketing or promotional services/assistance, provide e-mail services, or facilitate our online services. In these instances, we may need to share your personal information. We require these companies to use your personal information only to provide that particular product or service and do not authorize them to use your personal information for any other reason. In addition, if some or all of the assets of Nehst are sold to a third party, such third party will be entitled to use the information disclosed by users of our Site. Both the personal and non-personal information that we or other third parties have collected will likely be transferred as part of the transaction. If we sell our business, we will attempt to ensure that requests made of us regarding e-mail communications will be honored.
Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, we may need to disclose information as required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to protect its rights and/or to comply with a current judicial proceeding, court order or other legal process. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Nehst reserves the right to use or disclose non-personal information in any way we see fit.
Our Site has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. Nehst safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and other procedures. However, as it is not possible to guarantee the security or integrity of information you disclose online, we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and use a secure browser.
All personal data you submit to us through the Site is encrypted with secure server software (SSL) that encodes the information before your Web browser software sends it to us. The SSL software decodes the data only after it reaches Nehst's server, meaning that your data will be encrypted were hackers to intercept it while in transit. Once the data reaches our server, your private account and customer information is located on a secure service behind a firewall. It is not directly connected to the Internet.
Nehst complies with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (“COPPA"). COPPA protects the personal information of children under the age of 13. This applies to individually identifiable information about a child that is collected online, such as full name, home address, email address, telephone number or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child. COPPA also covers other types of information—for example, hobbies, interests and information collected through cookies or other types of tracking mechanisms—when they are tied to individually identifiable information. It is important for you to understand this law; we encourage you to read more about COPPA.
Note to Parents:
Nehst is committed to providing a safe, secure, and fun online experience for children who visit our Site. We are dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected online and ensuring that COPPA rules are being followed in conjunction with a visitor’s registration, the creation of profiles and submission for roles, and all other activities conducted on our Site, helping parents and children have a positive experience on the Internet. Consistent with COPPA, we do not knowingly request or accept personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without prior verifiable consent. In addition, we will not condition a child's participation in an activity on the child providing more information than is reasonably necessary for the activity. A printable consent form is built into the registration/profile creation process to help us secure parental consent and can also be obtained here. (Screentest.biz/consent form) Parents will always have access to all personal information we have about their children. If your child has registered using a false age, please notify us and we will immediately close the account and nullify all personally identifiable information collected from them. Parents can revoke their consent and ask that information about their children be deleted from the Site by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Information collected about a parent or guardian, whether from children or parents, for the purpose of obtaining verifiable parental consent or providing notice, is not maintained in retrievable form by the Site if consent is not obtained after a reasonable time, and, even if parental consent is obtained, it is not used for any other purpose.
