Information Automatically Collected
The website also collects certain information automatically when a user visits our website, such as the type, IP address and operating system of the mobile device or computer being used, the identity of the user's browser, and information about the user's browser settings, how the website is used, the duration on the site and the pages visited. When you visit the website, we also may use GPS or other similar technology to determine your current physical location. No information is collected regarding the user's other online activities over time and across third-party websites, nor can parties other than Wild Child Art Studio collect personally identifiable information about a user's online activities by virtue of your use of the website.
Children Under 13
Wild Child art Studio does not seek to collect and does not knowingly collect any personally identifying information from anyone under the age of 13. Prior to sending any information over the Internet about themselves (for instance, names, email addresses, and phone numbers), children should always get permission from their parents. We encourage all parents to take an active interest in their children's online activities. Wild Child Art Studio is committed to the protection of children's online privacy. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) governs information gathered online from or about children under the age of 13. Verifiable consent from a child's parent or guardian is required before collecting, using, or disclosing personal information from a child under age 13.
How We Use Information
Wild Child art Studio gathers user information in order to improve customer and web service, including making reservations and paying for Wild Child Art classes or purchases and for usability testing purposes. We may use information collected in our marketing efforts, including sending you text, direct mail and email promotions, coupons, birthday gift certificates and other special offers. User information also may be used to analyze customer behavior based on demographics and other criteria relevant to our marketing efforts and to analyze the success rate of our marketing campaigns. GPS data may be used for geographic targeting purposes.
Disclosure of Information to Third Parties
We do not disclose information collected from users to third parties who assist WCAS in operating the website or conducting its business, including usability testing, analyzing the success rate of marketing campaigns and advising us on marketing issues. WCAS may be required to disclose certain information to comply with legal requirements, such as subpoenas, search warrants, laws, regulations or court orders as part of a legal proceeding or a law enforcement agency request. Other than the foregoing and access through PayPal for purposes of credit card and electronic check processing, currently, we do not share user information collected by the website with third parties and have no plans to do so in the future.
Third Party Website Links
At the present time, the website contains links to WCAS's Facebook, Twitter, Instagram websites and links to additional websites may be added in the future. The website also directs users to the Paypal secure payment gateway in order to process users' credit card and electronic check payments. Website users should consult the Facebook, Twitter and PayPal privacy policies and those of any other third-party websites to which links are provided in the future to determine their respective information practices.
The Wild Child Art Studio does not issue refunds. Once an order has been placed, our system reserves that participant's placement in the class. When there is a cancellation, it has taken a spot that could have been utilized by another participant and in many cases, supplies for this class have already been purchased. In extenuating circumstances a class credit can be issued if notification is given 24 hours in advance. When in doubt, call our owner Carla Paschal at 336-309-3040.
