Privacy Policy

This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their 'Personally identifiable information' (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Secure shopping

At www.spanish-for-kids.com, we are committed to keeping your online transactions safe and secure. In order to reasonably assure the privacy and security of your credit card and other personal data when making an order, we use industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) 128-bit encryption. This will ensure that the data transferred between your web browser and our secure servers is invisible to anyone else.

The company that hosts our website and online shopping cart is BigCommerce. BigCommerce is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider, which means it adheres to the most stringent level of PCI-DSS compliance possible. The entire BigCommerce network is independently audited against stringent PCI security standards every three months.

When orders are placed through our website, we use Stripe to process the transactions in accordance with data protection laws. Stripe is certified as a PCI Level 1 Service Provider, and is also a participant in the PCI Security Standards Council.

By using BigCommerce and Stripe, we are able to ensure that your data is kept as secure as possible using only PCI Level 1 Service Providers.

If you are placing an order over the phone with us, we will enter your card details into these systems directly, again ensuring that data is not locally stored and is kept as secure as possible using only PCI Level 1 Service Providers. We do not store credit card information on our servers.

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart to expedite future orders, and to automate the billing process. Cookies are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Third party links

Our website may contain links to the websites that are owned and operated by third parties. These other websites may have their own privacy policies and are not governed by this Privacy Policy.

Other websites may collect and treat information collected differently, so we encourage you to carefully read and review the privacy policy for each website you visit.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared, and to comply with this policy. - See more at: http://consumercal.org/california-online-privacy-protection-act-caloppa/#sthash.0FdRbT51.dpuf

According to CalOPPA we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.

Once this Privacy Policy is created, we will add a link to it on our home page, or as a minimum on the first significant page after entering our website.

Our Privacy Policy link includes the word 'Privacy', and can be easily be found on the page specified above.

Users will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our Privacy Policy page

Users are able to change their personal information by emailing us at support@spanish-for-kids.com.

How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?

We currently ignore Do Not Track browser signals; however, we do not track your browsing activities on any site(s) other than this one.

Does our site allow third party behavioral tracking?

It's also important to note that we do not allow third party behavioral tracking

COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation's consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. We do not specifically market to children under 13.

Fair Information Practice Principles

The Fair Information Practice Principles (FIPPs) form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding FIPPs and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with FIPPs we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify the users via email within 7 business days

We will notify the users via in site notification within 1 business day

We also agree to the individual redress principle, which requires that individuals have a right to pursue legally enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or a government agency to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

       Process orders and to send information and updates pertaining to orders
