We (and/or our agents or affiliates) may collect online and use personally
identifiable information from our adult visitors: (1) to process and fulfill orders for products
or services (such as our books, t-shirts, and plush products); (2) in connection with
subscription registrations, surveys, visitors' requests for information, games; and (3)
to customize the content on our site for our visitors' current and future needs. In addition,
this personally identifiable information may be used to provide our visitors, via e-mail or
other means, information about materials and activities that may be of interest to them. We
do not share such information with third parties.

online or offline, and there is a media notification that you no longer wish to receive from

FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
There are many activities on the FUNWITHFRECKLES.COM site that children can
participate in and enjoy without having to share personally identifiable information.
For those activities that require personally identifiable information, such as
becoming a Friend of Freckles, in compliance with the Federal Trade Commission's Children's Online
Privacy Protection Act, Butterfly will not condition a child's participation in an activity on that
child disclosing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to administer
the activity. For certain online activities, we may require verifiable parental consent before
collecting or using personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. With
parental consent before collecting personally identifiable information from the child, unless we collect
only the child's name and online contact information to: (1) obtain parental consent or provide parents
with notice; (2) respond directly on a one-time basis to a child's specific request; (3) respond more than
once to a child's specific request along with providing parental notice of such use; (4) protect the
safety of a child; or (5) comply with legal requirements. When we provide parents with notice and/or
seek consent, we also give parents the ability to let us know if they do not want any further use made
of the personally identifiable information we have collected from their child. Parents can request to
review or have deleted their child's personally identifiable information from Butterfly's records, and
refuse to permit further use of a child's personally identifiable information by writing to us at:
Butterfly Creations, Inc., 9 Laurel Cove, Greensboro, NC 27455. Parents can also print, complete and
return this letter to the specified address.
Unless we indicate otherwise and obtain prior parental consent, personally identifiable
information collected from children under the age of 13 will be used solely by Butterfly and will not be
sold or otherwise transferred to third parties. It is FUNWITHFRECKLES.COM'S policy never to post on its
site more than a child's first name, first initial of last name, state, and age or grade.
Remember to be smart online. Do not give out your full name, e-mail address, home address,
telephone number or any other personal information that would enable someone to contact you either online
or offline, without first asking your parent or guardian for permission. Sometimes on our FUNWITHFRECKLES.COM
site we will ask you for your first name and e-mail address along with your parents' e-mail address. We do
this so that we can contact your parents to let them know that you have communicated with us, and that we
have collected this information from you.

called "cookies," and through our visitors' voluntary submissions to us and/or upon our request. By non-personally

identifiable information in connection with content submissions, games, classrooms, and bulletin boards: first
name only and first initial of last name, state, age, and grade. The non-personally identifiable information
that we track is anonymous and will never be identified with or lead us back to any of our visitors.
