Privacy Policy

 Munchkin, Inc. recognizes and respects the importance of maintaining the privacy of our customers, registered members ("Members") and users and has established this Privacy Policy as a result. This Privacy Policy applies to the websites and mobile apps or apps (collectively “Website”) that link to this Privacy Policy regardless of how you use or access it. Below we describe why we gather information from you, what information we collect, how we collect it, what we use the information for and how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information. This Privacy Policy is part of the Terms of Use, which governs your use of our website located at www.munchkin.com. The Website is owned by Munchkin, Inc.



Why do we gather information? 

Since our inception, Munchkin, Inc. has consistently provided our customers, Members, and users with quality goods and services, excellent customer service, access to useful information, and an overall pleasant interactive experience. We gather personal information to allow us and certain third parties to communicate with you, to process your orders, to provide an enhanced and more personalized interactive shopping experience and to inform you, and your gift and message recipients, of special offers and discounts. 



What information do we gather? 

Through our Website and emails – including, but not limited to, when you place an order, participate in our forums, surveys, contests, sweepstakes, promotions, content submissions, chats, bulletin boards, discussion groups, requests for suggestions, membership registrations, and in connection with other activities, services, products and resources we make accessible through or available on the Website, or any of our affiliated sites – we may collect the following information: your name, address, telephone number, email address, title (gender), birth date, age, photograph, billing information (credit card number, expiration date and billing address), occasion type (birthday, Mother’s Day, etc.), products purchased, any relevant promotion code and information, and the gift and message recipient's name, address, telephone number, email address, and any other information you provide to us, including User Submissions (as defined in the Terms and Conditions of Website Use, hereafter referred to as “Terms of Use.”). In addition, certain information may be collected automatically at our websites or apps. This information includes your IP address, UDID, browser setting, operating system, referring domain, language preferences, mobile carrier if you are using a mobile device, and other general information such as geo-location and online behavioral tracking. Third parties such as Foresee, Certona and Bazaar Voice may also collect certain information, such as website analytics, via our websites or apps. Information you enter is collected even if you cancel or do not complete the intended use, registration or order process. Members may also add to their Address Book the name, address and telephone number of friends or other persons to whom they may wish to send gifts, expressions, or receive gift reminders. Only Members have the right to view and edit their Address Book entries. We will always give you the choice to update, change or correct your personal information and to opt out of receiving emails.

How do we protect children? 

As a baby and infant products company, we take special precautions to protect the privacy of children under the age of 13. We do not collect any personal information for children (such as full name, birth date, address) without the consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances authorized by law. Additionally, we do not ask for more personal information than is necessary for a child to participate in an activity such as a contest or promotion. Finally, parents can always ask us to update or delete their children’s information.

 

How we use "cookies" and "Action Tags"?

A "cookie" is a small file stored on your computer by a website which gives you a numeric user ID and stores certain information about your activity on the site. We use cookies to let us know that you are a prior customer, user or Member and to provide certain features to you. We also work with third parties who offer analytics or deliver targeted ads online or through apps.  They use technology and collect device identifiers such as your IP address or mobile UDID, and information or your activities. You can opt out of receiving targeted ads, but may still see these ads even if they are less relevant to you. We do not store any personal information (except your name) or financial information about you through the use of cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but most allow you to instruct your browser to prevent the use of cookies. However, if you disable this feature, certain aspects of the Munchkin, Inc. Website, such as the shopping basket, may not function properly. Our Website also uses a common web technology called "action tags" (also called single pixel gifs or web beacons) to anonymously track purchase, usage and other web information. Action tags (including third-party tags) may be used to provide data to third parties for tracking purposes. However, no personal information is collected or transferred using action tags on our Website. 


How do we use the information we collect about you? 

We use information we collect to communicate with you, to process your orders, to provide an enhanced and more personalized interactive shopping experience and to inform you, and your gift and message recipients, of offers and discounts from Munchkin, Inc. or other websites and companies that we own or work with in providing you the best service and products possible. In addition, we may periodically make such information (except for credit card number and expiration date, unless you consent otherwise), including aggregated information, available to selected third parties including but not limited to, those who trade or rent information for direct marketing purposes. However, without your consent, we do not make your, or your gift or message recipient's, email addresses available to third parties (except to our Affiliates, subcontractors or agents acting on our behalf in compliance with this Privacy Policy) or any Successor (see below) to our business. "Affiliates" are those persons or entities directly or indirectly controlling, controlled by, or under common control with the Company. We will update this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting the updated Privacy Policy online with the date of change. If you would like us to email you a notice when our Privacy Policy or Terms of Use change, please follow the instructions below. Any email sent to your gift or message recipients will include a link to our Privacy Policy and a link to use if they wish not to receive further emails. You may instruct us not to share personal information about you that you have provided to us with third parties by following the instructions provided below. A Successor to our business is not to be considered to be a third party for these purposes (see below). 

In the event of a merger, consolidation, or sale or transfer of all or substantially all of the assets or business of the Company by, with, or into another company (a "Successor"), one of the assets which would generally be transferred is the information we collect from our customers, Members and users. However, the use of this information by any Successor would still be governed by the terms of this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time, including any amendment after such transaction, and you will continue to have the right to opt out of sharing your information with third parties. 

We may disclose any information you provide to us (i) when we believe disclosure to be appropriate to comply with any law, regulation, or governmental or law enforcement request, or to comply with judicial process; or (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate this Website or to process any orders or registrations or to conduct any promotions, contests, or sweepstakes you participate in; (iii) to protect the rights or property of the Company, its Affiliates, users, customers, recipients, Members, Sponsors, Providers, Licensors, or Merchants (as such terms are defined in the Terms of Use). 

Portions of the Website (such as our Member registration and Address Book) may require registration and log-in processes in which you will select a user ID and password (collectively, the "Password"). Any Password provided to you will be the exclusive property and confidential information of the Company and may be used by you solely for your individual use of this Website. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any Password provided to you. All activities that occur using your Password are your responsibility, whether or not authorized by you. You agree to immediately notify us of any unauthorized use of your Password or accounts.
