Privacy Policy

Spatulatta LLC respects the privacy of our users and the concerns of parents for their children visiting our site.

Spatulatta is designed for family use. We encourage parents and children to cook together. We always include adult help as one of the ingredient in our recipes. We want you to be actively involved in your child's cooking experiments and their on-line experience.

In keeping with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) we have created this privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to our users' privacy and to explain information gathering and dissemination practices.

If you are interested in reading more about COPPA you can visit the FTC web site at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/kidzprivacy/

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 - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

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 preferences. We may ask for age ranges, gender, and other non-personally 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.

Information gathered from polls and surveys are for internal use by Spatulatta, but aggregate information may be shared with others.

SHARING INFORMATION

Spatulatta does not share your personal information with anyone.
Spatulatta may share "general" information about our site visitors with our advertisers, potential partners, or other third parties. This information will only be provided in the aggregate.

LINKS

The content of Spatulatta is designed for family use. In addition to our own content, we also provide links to companies and organizations that share our healthy eating/healthy living policy. We make every effort to link only to sites with content suitable for all ages, but we cannot be responsible for what appears on other sites. Additionally, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and information gathering practices of those other sites.

SECURITY, REVIEW AND DELETION OF INFORMATION

Spatulatta uses industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. While there is no such thing as "perfect security" on the Internet, we try our best to make sure that your transmissions to and from the Site are kept secure. The limited personally identifiable information collected from a child is password protected.

You may request at any time that the information collected about your child be deleted. Parents may contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
