My True Blue Site Privacy Statement...

Privacy Policy

(Last revised: 13:23 12/5/03 )

"" is committed to bringing you information, products, and services that are tailored to your individual needs and, at the same time, to protecting your privacy. The following is a summary of the various ways we treat the information you provide us while using "".

"" does not collect personally identifying information except with your specific knowledge and consent. And we do not share such information with any outside party, so there's no need to send us an "opt out" message to prevent your name from appearing on any bulk mailing lists.

Sometimes you will provide us with data that doesn't reveal your personal identity — what type of product you're seeking, for example. We use this information for editorial purposes, and occasionally for other internal purposes, but we don't connect it to any name, address, or other identifying information. This way we can give you customized information without compromising your privacy.

In a few cases — if you e-mail a question or some feedback to us, for example — we may request your name, e-mail address or other information so that we can e-mail you with a personal reply. If you choose to supply this information we will use it only for the specific purpose for which you supply it — unless we tell you otherwise at the time of collection, in which case you'll have an option to forbid other uses by us.

In other cases, we may require certain personal information: When using our "On-line Order Form" function, for example, you must enter your return e-mail address. Again, we will use such information only for the specific purpose for which you supply it — unless we tell you otherwise at the time of collection, in which case you'll have an option to forbid other uses by us.

We will never share any of your personally identifying data with any other party without your explicit permission, nor will we use it for unapproved commercial purposes.

A few special cases are worth noting. From time to time we may run competitions or request material we can publish; to participate, you must usually supply us with your identity, which you agree to have publicly associated with your submission. The exact rules vary from case to case, and will be noted clearly on the relevant pages. Your participation will always be voluntary and knowing.

We may offer to send you information or updates from "" via e-mail or otherwise; obviously, signing up will put you on a specific mailing list. We will not put you on any other mailing lists, from us or anyone else, without your permission.

In addition, your postings to our forums, chat and any other public discussion areas are not private.

You should be aware that any information you post in our public areas may be seen, collected and used by others, and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or parties. Alas, we can't control this; you post at your own risk.

You may have read about "cookies," nuggets of information that are placed by a Web site in a storage place on your own computer. "" uses cookies only to control the display of ads — to ensure that you don't see the same ad too many times in a single session, for example. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifying information.

While using "" you may notice that our advertisers occasionally serve you cookies, either directly or when you link to their sites. We cannot directly control what our advertisers or these cookies do, but it's our policy that advertisers on "" should use cookies the same way we do.

If you don't like cookies, your Web browser likely includes an option that allows you not to accept them. We don't recommend using this option, though: It makes browsing our site a less enjoyable experience.

Finally, while your individual information is protected as outlined above, we reserve the right to use aggregated, anonymous data about our users as a group. For instance, we might report to potential advertisers that a certain percentage of our users appear to be "Beanie Baby Hounds", based on their requests.
KIDS: Be sure to ask your parents for permission before you send any information about yourself — like your name, address or e-mail address — over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. Never buy anything online without permission. Oh, and tell your parents to read this page, too!

PARENTS: We encourage you to get involved with your kids' online usage so you can be aware of what they're doing. If "" knowingly collects personally identifying data from children, we use it for internal purposes only — we don't post it, publish it or provide it to any third parties. Of course, we treat your personally identifying data the same way.

As mentioned above, for certain purposes we may use anonymous, aggregated data about our users. Kids' information may be included in this — but anonymously.

If your kids disclose information about themselves in our public discussion areas, they may get unsolicited messages from other parties. Accordingly, you should tell them not to do so.

If you're worried about your kids' activities or their privacy on "", we encourage you to e-mail us.

This Privacy Policy may be modified from time to time; notice of changes will appear on this page, so check back often. Any such changes will be prospective, never retroactive.
If you have concerns or questions about any aspect of this policy, please send us e-mail. We welcome your feedback. You can also send us regular mail at the following address:
