Elmer's Products, Inc. Privacy Practices
Customer Data Collection, Use and Protection
In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Our Web servers collect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of visitors. This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, etc. Elmer's uses this information to measure the use of our Website and to improve the content of our Website.
There are times, however, when we may need information from you, or you sign up to join a club or program such as the Teachers' Club, the Glue Crew Recycling Program or Elmer's Crafters, at which time you are asked to provide your name, e-mail address and mailing address. Such customer data assists Elmer's in serving the following purposes:
- To help you quickly find services or information
- To help us create Website content most relevant to you
- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, and other new products or services from Elmer's
- To allow you to participate in clubs and programs we offer and contests conducted through our Website
Elmer's uses your information only for these purposes, and Elmer's does not disclose your information to third parties in providing you with these services through our Website. If you are a child under the age of 13, and are not participating in our web clubs or other activities that are addressed under the Children's Privacy (Under the Age of 13) section of this policy, we specifically request that you not submit any personal information to us through this Website.
However, please note that Elmer's will disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Elmer's on the Website; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Elmer's, or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Elmers.com or the public.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy other companies or their assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the unlikely event that Elmer's or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.
Web Server Cookies and Log Files
Like most standard Website servers, we use log files. This includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses etc. are tied to personally identifiable information to enable our Web based service.
At times, we conduct online surveys to better understand the needs and profile of our visitors. When we conduct a survey, we will let you know how we will use the information we collect from you.
Children's Privacy (Under the Age of 13)
Elmer's takes children's privacy seriously and wants parents to understand that we take additional precautions with respect to collecting information from children under the age of 13. We do not seek to collect personal information about children through our Website without consent of a parent or legal guardian, except in limited circumstances. Elmer's may collect the first name and e-mail address of your child under the age of 13 without your consent if your child signs up to join a web club or other activity that may involve Elmer's contacting your child via e-mail from time to time. Elmer's will also ask the child for the e-mail address of his/her parent of guardian so that we may notify you that your child has joined the web club or other activity and to give you an opportunity to have your child opt-out and have their personal information removed.
We are prohibited from conditioning and do not condition your child's participation in a web club or other activity on your child disclosing more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in such activity.
Our websites do not offer activities that allow your child or us to disclose your child's personal information publicly (for example, through chat rooms, message boards or e-mail accounts) or to any third party.
We do not share your child's personal information with third parties.
You can review your child's personally identifiable information, request to have all or certain information deleted or changed, or refuse to allow the further collection or use of your child's personal information by contacting us at:
If your child is not signing up to join a web club or other activity and we become aware that a person submitting personal information to us through any part of our Website is a child under the age of 13, we delete the information as soon as we discover it and do not use it for any purpose, nor do we disclose it to third parties. Since we do not seek to collect any personal information about children, except in the limited circumstances described above, and we delete information collected inadvertently as soon as we discover that a child has submitted it, we typically retain no information about children that could be reviewed or deleted. If a parent requests review or deletion of information about their child before we have discovered and deleted the information, we will of course honor that request. Please use the address, telephone number or e-mail address above to contact us.
