We recognize that your privacy is important. This document outlines the types of personal information we receive and collect when you use Best Children's Books, as well as some of the steps we take to safeguard information. We hope this will help you make an informed decision about sharing personal information with us.

Best Children's Books strives to maintain the highest standards of decency, fairness and integrity in all our operations. Likewise, we are dedicated to protecting our customers', consumers' and online visitors' privacy on our website.

Personal Information

Best Children's Books collects personally identifiable information from the visitors to our website only on a voluntary basis. Personal information collected on a voluntary basis may include name, postal address, email address, and telephone number.

Such information is collected (and usually only some of it is) when you request information from us, make a contribution to the site, or request some other service or information from us. The information collected is used only to communicate with you or - in the case of you posting information to the site - to identify your general location to visitors. (City, state, country - all optional. Visitors are also permitted to post anonymously.)

Once information is reviewed, it is discarded or stored in our files. If we make material changes in the collection of personally identifiable information we will inform you by placing a notice on our site. Personal information received from any visitor will be used only for internal purposes and will not be sold or provided to third parties.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

For example, if you personalize the site's pages, or register with any of our site's services, a cookie enables us to recall your specific information on subsequent visits.

Some third-party advertisements on this site may be provided by Google, which uses cookies to serve ads on this site. Google uses the DART cookie, which enables it to serve ads to our users based on their visits to this site and other sites on the Web. You may opt out of the use of the DART cookie by visiting the Google ad and content network privacy policy.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn't cause a problem with our site, should you so choose.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites. They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic. They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the pages of a web site.

We may serve third party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web site to ascertain how many times you've seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on our web site.

Removal of Material for Which Copyright Infringement is Claimed

DMCA: Digital Millennium Copyright Act

We will respond to allegations of copyright violations in accordance with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA). The DMCA provides a process for a copyright owner to give notification to an online service provider concerning alleged copyright infringement. When a valid DMCA Notice is received, the online service provider responds under this process by taking down the offending content. On taking down content under the DMCA, we will take reasonable steps to contact the owner of the removed content so that a Counter-notification may be filed. On receiving a valid Counter-notification, we generally restore the content in question, unless we receive notice from the DMCA Notice provider that a legal action has been filed seeking a court order to restrain the alleged infringer from engaging in the infringing activity. If we believe that a user or account holder is continually abusing the DMCA process, either with filings that appear to be without basis, or by continually re-posting content that is the subject of valid DMCA notifications, it is our policy that under these and other appropriate circumstances, we may exercise our right to terminate the abusing party's account.

Any person who knowingly materially misrepresents that material or an activity is infringing or that material or activity was removed or disabled by mistake or misidentification, shall be liable to us for any damages, including costs and attorneys' fees, incurred by us in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or enabling access to it.

We may provide copies of such notices to the participants in the dispute or to third parties, at our discretion and as required by law. Our privacy policy does not protect any information contained in any DMCA Counter-notification. To File a DMCA Notice - A written notification must be made. The notification must:

1. Identify in sufficient detail the copyrighted work that you believe has been infringed upon (i.e., describe the work that you own).

2. Identify the in-world item that you claim is infringing on your copyright, and provide information reasonably sufficient to locate the item ON OUR WEBSITE.

3. Provide a reasonably sufficient method of contacting you - address, phone number and email address is preferred.

4. (Optional) Provide information, if possible, sufficient to permit us to notify the user(s) who posted the content that allegedly contains infringing material. You may also provide screenshots or other materials that are helpful to identify the works in question. (This is for identification only, not to "prove" substantive claims.)

5. Include the following statement: "I have good faith belief that the use of the copyrighted materials described above and contained on the service is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or by protection of law."

6. Include the following statement: "I swear, under penalty of perjury, that the information in the notification is accurate and that I am the copyright owner or am authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed."

7. Sign the paper.

The DMCA provides that you may be liable for damages (including costs and attorneys' fees) if you falsely claim that an in-world item(s) is infringing your copyrights.

You can send the DMCA notice by U.S. mail or courier to our Designated Agent at:
