Our Privacy Commitment
By accessing any part of the Site or using the Services, its user (“you”) agrees with this Policy. This Policy is part of the Terms and Conditions governing your use of the Website and the Services. Please read the Terms and Conditions of Use. If you do not agree with any part of this Policy, please do not use the Site or the Services.
We may change or revise this Policy at any time, for any reason and without notice. Your continued use of any of the Site or Services signifies your acceptance of any such changes or revisions. For this reason, please visit this page on a regular basis to ensure that you are familiar with the most recent version of this Policy. You can address your questions or concerns regarding this Policy to KWL Management.
This Policy is effective as of the date set forth above and is only applicable to the Site and not to any other website that you may be able to access from any of the Site which may have its own data collection and use practices and policies.
This Policy answers the following questions:
What is our policy on children’s privacy?
We encourage parents and guardians to spend time online with their children and to participate in the activities offered on the Site.
The Site is not for children under 13 years of age. However, there are some areas of the Site that may be attractive to children under 13. We do not condition participation by a child of any age in any activity or any of the services available on or through the Site on the disclosure of more personally-identifiable information than is reasonable necessary to participate in an activity. We do not knowingly collect personally-identifiable information from users of the Site who are under 13 years of age. No personally-identifiable information should be submitted to, or posted at, the Site by visitors under 13 years of age without the prior written consent of their parent or guardian.
If we receive an e-mail message from a child who discloses, or is otherwise known to us, to be under 13 years of age, we may, without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian:
Any parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age who has provided personally-identifiable information to us may request a description of the personally-identifiable information that has been collected from or about that child, and either limit or restrict any further maintenance or use of such information from that child and/or direct us to delete it. Also, a parent may decline to allow any future collection of personally-identifiable information from that child. Such requests can be made by contacting us at email@example.com. We will take reasonable measures to verify that the requesting party is, in fact, the parent or guardian of the child in question before providing a child’s personally-identifiable information to such person.
A parent may also access the personally-identifiable information that has been collected by us through accessing the “My Account” area of that parent’s child’s account by logging into the Site with that child’s account name and password.
We will not knowingly use or disclose any personally-identifiable information of a child under 13 years of age for any purpose except as described above.
What information do we collect about you and how do we use it?
The Type of Information We Collect and How We Collect It
By accessing or using the Site, you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personally-identifiable information that you voluntarily choose to disclose to us, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address and credit card information; and (2) non-personally-identifiable information, which we collect through the use of the technology called “cookies,” “web beacons” and/or “web logs.” You do not need to submit personally-identifiable information to access certain areas of the Site, but if you do not want to disclose certain personally-identifiable information to us, you will not be able to access certain aspects of the Services.
We collect personally-identifiable information when you create an account through the Services; subscribe to our newsletter; participate in chat rooms, forums, polls, surveys, and questionnaires; participate in contests, sweepstakes, or other promotions; purchase a product through the Services; register a product that you have purchased; contact us through the “Contact Us” links on the Site, or receive customer or technical support.
To create an account for the Services, we require you to provide your name, date of birth, e-mail address, and phone number. You will also need to create a screen name and password. When you are purchasing products through the Services, in addition to your name, e-mail address and screen name that you choose, we will ask for your shipping and billing address and credit card, debit card or other payment information.
Additionally, we may also collect other types of information (known as demographic information) such as your gender, hobbies and interests. This demographic information may be associated with your personally-identifiable information.
How We Use Your Personally-Identifiable Information
The personally-identifiable information you provide to us will allow us to fulfill your product or service order; alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handle/route your customer service questions or issues; and/or notify you of contests, promotions, or special events and offers. We may contact you by e-mail with respect to your order of our products or services or your account. We also use your e-mail address to send you messages about the Services and other general announcements.
We keep track of your interactions with us, including, but not limited to, your activity within the Services. We may use information relating to your interactions with us to generate information about the popularity of certain Services and how users of the Site utilize different aspects of the Services (“Popularity Data”). We may use this Popularity Data to design, develop and implement additional services and features of the Site and to improve the Services. Popularity Data may be associated with your account and we may provide a point system in which your account earns points through the amount of Popularity Data your account has achieved. These points may be displayed with the account information that is publicly displayed to other end users of the Site, such as when you participate in a forum in the Site, but we do not disclose the Popularity Data itself as associated with your account.
We may use personally-identifiable information that you provide to us to send messages to you in response to your request to perform an activity in connection with your use of any of the Services.
How We Use Your Non-Personally-Identifiable Information
You may choose to disable “cookies” on your computer, block all “cookies”, or receive a warning before a “cookie” is stored on your computer (please consult instructions for your web browser). However, if you disable or block “cookies,” it is possible that some parts of the Services will not be accessible to you.
Our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit the Site. This information includes your Internet Protocol address, your browser type and version which Site and/or Services you use and when and how long you use them. We use this information to monitor and analyze how users use the Site and Services, to provide customer service and to maintain and improve the Services.
Will we share your personally-identifiable information with third parties?
Sharing of Information
We may disclose certain elements of your personally identifiable information (e.g., your name and email address) with Selita Ebanks and members of her management team for the limited purpose of enabling her to communicate directly with you about her upcoming performances, appearances, contests, sweepstakes, announcements and other special events.
We may use your personally-identifiable information to provide analyses of our users in the aggregate to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties. We may also disclose and otherwise use, on an anonymous basis, affiliation, position, interests and other non-personally-identifiable information about customers.
In addition, we will share the personally-identifiable information we collect from you under the following circumstances:
Additional Information You Should Know About Third Parties
This Policy does not cover the information practices of third party websites linked to any of the Site. Although we encourage such third parties to adopt and follow their own privacy policies, we are not responsible for their collection and use of your personally-identifiable information. You should refer to the privacy policies and statements of other websites or contact the respective webmasters of those websites to obtain information regarding their information collection, use and disclosure policies.
The Services may also have message boards, forums and/or chat areas, where users can exchange ideas and communicate with one another. When you post to a message board, forum or chat area, please be aware that the information you post is made publicly available on-line and you do so at your own risk.
What choices do you have about the collection and use of your personally-identifiable information?
Control of Your Information
You may update or delete your personally-identifiable information or modify your account preferences for the Services by accessing the “My Account” area of the Services. Please note that when you delete your account, we may retain your account information for a reasonable period of time afterward for the purpose of internal account management and fraud prevention activities.

Please note that you cannot unsubscribe from certain correspondence from us, including messages relating to your account transactions.
If you are a resident of a country outside of the European Union, you also agree that, in the event any dispute or claim arises out of or relating to this Policy that you will attempt in good faith to negotiate a written resolution of the matter directly with either Operator or Selita Ebanks or her affiliated entities, depending on your concern. You agree that if the matter remains unresolved for forty-five (45) days after notification (via certified mail or personal delivery) that a dispute exists, the parties shall join in mediation services in New York, New York with a mutually agreed mediator in an attempt to resolve the dispute. Should you file any arbitration claims, or any administrative or legal actions without first having attempted to resolve the matter by mediation, then you agree that you will not be entitled to recover attorney’s fees, even if you would otherwise be entitled to them.
