    How We Utilize Your Valuable Feedback

    General Information Collected Automatically
    In some cases, we may collect information that is not personally-identifiable. Examples of this type of information include the type of Internet browser, of computer operating system and the domain name of the website from which you linked to ECP.
    Mailing list subscribers are never sold, rented or passed on to a third party and it is not our intention to do so in the future.

    Information We May Automatically Place On Your Computer's Hard Drive.
    The Educational CyberPlayGround website will store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a "Cookie" or similar file. This information would help us to improve our service we offer in a number of ways.

    What is a cookie?
    A cookie is a short piece of data, not code, which is sent from a web server to a web browser when that browser visits the server's site. The cookie is stored on the user's machine, but it is not an executable program and cannot do anything to your machine.
    Cookies are required for ASP sites to work properly. They enable the server to tell one user from another. The server doesn't care about a user's details--just the fact that one user is different from another. ECP sells online curriculum which would use a cookie that allows you to save pieces of information for the online purchase using a shopping basket. The simplest way to do this is to send you a cookie with the items you are requesting. When you are then ready to view your basket, our server would read the cookie and deliver the information that you need.
    Some places in our Cul De Sac Area will require a username and password to enter. Instead of you having to enter your information every time, we ask you one time, and then retrieve the information every time after that. The result is a fast and enjoyable visit to the site.
    Who will read the cookie? Any cookies we send you can only be read by The Educational CyberPlayGround®.
    If you did not wish us to place "Cookie" files on your hard drive, you can always adjust your browser settings to either exclude cookies or to inform you every time we (or anyone else for that matter) tried to send you a cookie.
    Cookies can be deleted from your hard drive in the same way that you would delete any file anytime. Also you may want to delete any Flash cookies AND YouTube and most video sites use Flash which has it's own cookies called Local  Shared Objects (LSOs) which can only be managed at the Adobe web site or using a browser plugin.
