Privacy policies and cookies 
Effective July 29, 2015
Thank you for your interest in our privacy policies. We value your privacy and your children's safety. At Kid’s Imagination Train we care about:

Protecting the privacy of children
Being open and honest with our customers, and
Treating personal information with care and respect

We welcome the chance to share Kid’s Imagination Train’s content with families, writers, and teachers and we approach each contact with our customers with care and respect. The policy below explains our practices regarding the safeguarding of personal information and the choices you can make about the way your information is used. We encourage you to read the policy, to manage your communication preferences, and to discuss with your children what information is and is not appropriate to share, both online and off.

Regarding children’s privacy and the special privacy policy for our websites for children: 
Certain features on our websites for children allow a child to submit an e-mail address in order for our staff to provide an individual response. We use the e-mail address for no other purpose, and we delete the e-mail address after we respond. Other features allow children to submit illustrations along with their first name, age, and state, province, or country. Non-personally identifiable information from these features may, at the editors’ discretion, be posted on our website.

We do collect aggregate information from our website in order to improve the experiences for our visitors and to serve you better. Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable. Like many sites, we also use "cookies" and other tracking technologies during a visit to help us understand how people use our websites. Your browser allows you to disable "cookies".

Regarding customer privacy, preferences and shopping on our websites and our general website privacy policy:

When you make a donation, sign up for receiving issues, enter a contest, or send a submission, you provide us information that we use to deliver the services you request, to inform you of monthly issues, to communicate with you about your submission, and to provide you with updates about Kid’s Imagination Train.  We take our role in holding and using this information seriously. When we select credit card processors, fulfillment and delivery companies, web services and others to help us we select those whom we believe take security seriously. We are committed to using this information within the bounds of the law and using our best judgment.
We encourage you to make decisions about the offers you receive from us and the way your personal information is used.

If you give us your child's name in connection with an illustration she or he has drawn on our websites, we keep it on file, but only for the purpose of addressing, never for marketing. We ask for your child's name because many people want their children to experience the thrill of getting credit for their illustration and of being thanked for their contribution.
