Safe Harbor Statement
In our commitment to protect the privacy of children, Meddybemps.com participates in the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program. If you have any questions or need to file a complaint related to our privacy policy and practices, please contact the iKeepSafe Safe Harbor program's dedicated consumer complaint department at COPPAPrivacy@ikeepsafe.org.

Purpose of Site
Meddybemps.com exists to help young children develop and build learning skills through online activities and stories. We encourage parents and teachers to visit the site with children, to lead discussions of the material and to share in the joy of discovery and learning. The site does not exist to gather or collect data about individual users.

User Information
We do not gather personal information about visitors to Meddybemps.com. The server hosting our site counts the times pages and images are viewed as well as other data related to activity on the site. It does not gather any data that would identify visitors. It does not track your actions or serve up content based on your behavior and interests.

Story Starters
If a parent or teacher sends us stories that children have written or dictated using our Young Writers Workshop story starter pages, we record the submissions and publish selected stories. Each submission must be accompanied by written permission from a parent. The children's addresses and last names are not published. None of the associated personal information is shared with anyone else.

Collection/Deletion Under Story Starters
Meddybemps.com collection of data is limited to information collected from parents and/or teachers via the written permission form that must be mailed to us when submitting children's stories. Information collected via the permission form includes: child's first name and last initial, gender, age as well as parent's name, mailing address and email address. The permission forms are maintained in a secured area and will remain on file until the story is removed from the Meddybemps.com site. The permission forms are not stored in electronic format. Parents and teachers may request the removal of the story and the deletion of the permission form by contacting us.

Mail and Email
We do receive and reply to mail and email. Questions, compliments, and criticisms are all welcome.

Social Media
We may use Twitter and Facebook accounts in association with www.meddybempsguide.com, but will not post links to them from this site.

Advertising
We have removed all advertising from Meddybemps.com except for descriptions of print versions of certain learning activities which are available for sale and download through MeddybempsGuide.com. We think we've removed all ads from the far corners of the site, but if you find one we missed, let us know by email and we will remove it.

Companion Site
The companion website MeddybempsGuide.com was created to help parents and teachers get the most use out of Meddybemps.com. Income from advertising, Amazon referrals, print-on-demand products, and downloads sold on MeddybempsGuide.com helps pay for hosting, occasional software updates, and the odd piece of hardware used to maintain both sites.

In short, we don't sell, trade, or give away your personal information. The little bit we do gather has to do with Story Starters, mail, and email.

Changes to the Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to modify this privacy policy at any time, so please review it periodically. You agree to accept changes to this privacy policy by your continued use of Meddybemps.com.

Merger or Sale
If Meddybemps.com goes through a business transition, such as a merger or sale, users will be notified via a prominent notice on our Web site for 30 days prior to any such change. Meddybemps.com was launched in 1995. We have no interest in merging or selling the site.
