Toy Industry Association, Inc. (TIA™) is committed to providing a safe Cyber environment for parents, children and people who are interested in the world of toys and play. We respect your privacy, and would like you to know what is done with any information that we collect through our web site.
BROWSING TIA’S WEB PROPERTIES
(e.g., TheGeniusofPlay.org, ToyAssociation.org, ToyAwards.org)
Our sites log certain activity of visitors (i.e., how many total visitors we have, what the most popular pages are, etc). However, that tracking is NOT done in such a way that it identifies the individual visitor … with one exception: in order to conduct the nomination and voting for the Toy of the Year (TOTY) Awards, we use personal "cookies" to identify and monitor individuals and their voting activities on the ToyAwards.org site.
INFORMATION YOU GIVE US
All personal information collected by TIA™ is securely stored, and will be used solely for identification and/or purposes stated when the information is requested. TIA™ will not sell, distribute or otherwise make available to third parties any information we collect on this site. Children, as always, are encouraged to check with their parents before providing any information on any web site they visit.
TIA™ aggregates information from all of its visitors into log files in order to measure the total number of visitors to the website and how many visit each area within it. This helps TIA™ to learn about which areas are most popular and should be expanded and which are least popular and should be reduced or eliminated. TIA™ does not belong to banner ad networks and does not access or allow access by other organizations. Currently TIA™ uses Google Analytics to collect information about visits to our website. Here is specific information about Google Analytics:
Because your privacy is important to us, Google Analytics conducts its business under the following principles:
Principle 1: No Collection of Personal Information
Google Analytics does not collect personal information such as name, age, phone number and mailing address from visitors to our customer's web sites.
Principle 2: No Combination of Browsing and Web Traffic Information with Personal Information
Since Google Analytics does not collect any personal information, we do not combine traffic analysis information with personal information such as name, age, phone number and mailing address.
Principle 3: No Aggregation of Individual Visitor Traffic Patterns across Multiple Sites
Google Analytics does not collect individual profile information for visitors across multiple sites and does not aggregate information from any other sources about browsing patterns of individual visitors across multiple sites.
Principle 4: Use of Anonymous IP Address
IP addresses are recorded by every site on the Internet. Google Analytics collects this information as well, but does so exclusively for the following uses: (1) anonymous statistical purposes; or (2) administration of our web site and servers, and to improve our services.
Principle 6: No Individual Profiling
Google Analytics does not create individual profiles for visitors. Unlike other tracking services we do not have a database of individual profiles for each visitor. Google Analytics collects data in aggregate form and data is not recorded or stored for individual visitors.
