PRIVACY POLICY AT DIVEOLLYDIVE.COM

Taffy Productions, LLC has created DiveOllyDive.com as the online location where fans of the animated television series DiveOllyDive can learn more about their favorite program and characters.  Taffy Productions urges both kids and their parents to use and enjoy our website and we are committed to complying fully with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998.  Our information collection practices are described below and we strongly recommend that children who want to enter any information on any website to check with their parents first; we think parents should discuss with their children appropriate safeguards and restrictions concerning the disclosure online to anyone they don't know of any kind of personal information.

What Information Is Collected?

At Taffy Productions we try to avoid creating online content that requires significant personal information from our visitors.  We generally limit our collection of information from kids to what is known as non-personally identifiable information such as screen names and birthdate.  However, we may request limited personally identifiable information such as kids' email addresses and/or email address of parents, in order to conduct online contests or sweepstakes or offer other online activities such as electronic postcards and newsletters.  We do not require the disclosure of more information than is reasonably necessary to participate in the applicable activity. 

Contests and Sweepstakes

On DiveOllyDive.com we may occasionally offer contests and sweepstakes, which will be entered online.  To participate in a contest or sweepstakes, a child is asked to provide his or her name, age and email address and the email address of his or her parent or guardian.  If the child is under the age of 13, we send the child's parent or guardian an email within two business days informing the parent or guardian of the child's entry and asking the parent to grant permission for the child to enter the contest or sweepstakes; if we do not receive an e-mail granting permission within one (1) week, the child's entry is deleted.  All personally identifiable information collected by DiveOllyDive.com for contests or sweepstakes is securely maintained and used only for the purpose of conducting the contests or sweepstakes.  We delete any personal information collected after the conclusion of the contest except that we may provide information collected to a fulfillment house that helps run the contest or sweepstakes. We require those fulfillment houses to maintain the confidentiality, security and integrity of any information we provide them.

Unsolicited Submissions

Taffy Productions, and its affiliated company’s, are an active production companys’ and therefore does not knowingly accept unsolicited submissions of creative material including, without limitation, submissions of scripts, story lines, articles, fan fiction, characters, drawings, information, suggestions, ideas or concepts. Taffy Productions’ policy is to promptly delete any such submission without reading it or forwarding it to other Taffy Productions departments or personnel.  Accordingly, any similarity between an unsolicited submission and any elements in any Taffy Productions, and/or its affiliate companies, creative work is purely coincidental.
Electronic Artwork Submission

Occasionally, Taffy Productions provides kids the opportunity to send, through DiveOllyDive.com electronic artwork featuring Taffy Productions’ characters or other original artwork.  In connection with the submission of such original artwork, participants must print out a release form from the site.  The child and his or her parent or guardian must sign and return the form to Taffy Productions with any such submission as a condition of our considering the content. CLICK HERE for release form.  We do not require kids to submit personally identifiable information about themselves (other than their names and ages in some cases) in order to send electronic artwork.
All information collected for electronic artwork is used only to identify the person who created and/or sent the artwork to DiveOllyDive.com, and such information is deleted from our system once the electronic artwork is removed from the site.

Use of Information

Taffy Productions uses or may use personally identifiable information that kids provide in order to identify their artwork.  Taffy Productions may also share information with consultants and affiliates for internal business purposes.  Except for the purpose of announcing contest winners or identification of artwork from children, Taffy Productions currently does not disclose to third parties personally identifiable information that kids provide.  From time to time however, we may share such information with third parties who may be engaged by us specifically to administer certain online activities such as contests and sweepstakes.  Such third parties have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purposes.

Additionally, if all or substantially all of Taffy Productions’ assets are transferred or sold to another entity, we may transfer personally identifiable information submitted to us prior to such transfer.

Finally, we may also disclose personally identifiable information to third parties when required by law or is pertinent to judicial or government investigations or proceedings, or otherwise necessary to protect our website or the safety of its users.

Log Data

Log data is collected on web servers both within Taffy Productions’ control and under the control of DiveOllyDive.com’s third party providers, who are required to maintain such data on a confidential basis.  Log data supplies Taffy Productions with aggregate information about the number of visits to different pages on our site. Taffy Productions uses such aggregate information to improve access to our content based on our visitors' browsers and operating system types to make our content available to as many kids as possible.  We do not link the log data collected to the personal information that kids submit online when participating in our activities.
Parental Access
