PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
What We Collect And How We Use It
Anybody can access Spatulatta. Both children and adults can
surf to this site and view content without any personally identifiable
information being collected. However, some activities may require
that a person provide personally identifiable information. We
do not collect more personally identifiable information than
necessary to participate in any of the site's activities.
We do not ask for any personal information that can
be used by to locate your child. We only ask for first name,
age and e-mail address.
We urge parents to instruct their children never to give out
their last names, addresses, phone numbers, school name or social
security numbers when using the Internet.
We do not sell or transfer any personally identifiable information
collected at this site to third parties without consent.
We do not actively solicit, request, or re-use any information
from visitors except in the following instances:
Requests For Information and Feedback
We offer a “Contact Us” page so users can communicate
with us. There is a text box for users to send us recipes and
write whatever they want to tell us. Real names need not be used
to request e-mail replies.
Our contact forms includes a request for parental e-mail address
and we copy the parent on every response. If we get a contact
with only the child’s e-mail address, we let them know
that we can only reply once without their parent’s consent.
If a user signs up to receive newsletters or updates from Spatulatta,
they need to provide a valid e-mail address. Real names need
not be used to request newsletters.
When we e-mail our newsletter, it includes instructions on how
to unsubscribe from the newsletter. If your child subscribes
to the Spatulatta newsletter without your knowledge, simply follow
the instructions, and unsubscribe immediately.
In addition, parents can request to have their child's information
deleted and refuse to permit further collection of information
by us. In order to do that, simply contact us -
Contests, Promotions and Electronic Mailing
During contests we request name, age and e-mail address on the
contest or sweepstakes entry form. These e-mail addresses will
only be used for contacting the winner.
When entering, children under the age of 13 are required to
provide the email address of a parent/guardian. Spatulatta will
send an email to the parent giving them the option of removing
their child from the contest if they so choose.
Should a user under the age of 13 be selected as the winner
(depending on eligibility and legal requirements per the contest
rules and regulations), Spatulatta will notify that child and
their parent/guardian that the child has won and request the
parent or guardian complete a release and waiver form so that
we may award the prize.
Also, if permission is granted by a parent/guardian, we may
post the winner's first name, age and home state/province. Once
the prize is awarded, only information related to the winner(s)
will be maintained for internal administrative purposes.
NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION
Polls and Surveys
From time to time we ask our site visitors to answer survey
questions. Surveys generally deal with the site or our audience

identifiable information. No personally identifiable information
is requested and the information collected from a child is not
tied to any personally identifiable information that may have
been previously provided.
