By knowing your preferences we can deliver relevant information that meets your needs, and ensures that your visit to our site is quick, easy, and productive.
Discovery Science Foundation collects personally identifying information only (1) when you register for personalized information at our site, (2) to place an order in our shopping cart, and (3) to enter into one of our promotions. Discovery Science Foundation will not sell, rent or share this information with any other organization except where otherwise indicated below.
What Information Do We Collect?
Discovery Science Foundation does not collect any unique information about you (such as your name, email address, etc.) except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information as part of the Teacher Education Network’s registration process, a ticket purchase, or when submitting a request for more information. Discovery Science Foundation may save information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. That information is used to verify our records and to provide more relevant services to our users.
Do we disclose your information to outside parties?
Third party links
Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include links to third party websites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
Online Advertising and Remarketing Tags We Use
While Discovery Cube science center locations are designed for children to learn and play in a safe, educational environment under the supervision of their parents, our website is not designed for unsupervised children or those under the age of 13. We use our website to promote our various education programs and centers strictly to teachers and parents. We do not knowingly attempt to track, target or sell to users under the age of 13.
How to Opt-Out of Remarketing and Advertising
If you do not wish to participate in our third party remarketing, you can opt out of such advertising cookies by enabling “Do Not Track” in your web browser’s settings or by opting out directly :
Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act). We do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. Our website, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.
Information for Parents & Guardians
As a parent or guardian you can request Discovery Cube to remove personal information of your child that was submitted without your consent or by misrepresenting his or her age. At your request, we will take reasonable steps to remove such information from our database. All such requests should include the same user name, password, and e-mail address that your child submitted and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have taken the necessary steps to ensure that we are compliant with the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 by never sending out misleading information.
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input. You can confirm this by noting the small yellow lock which appears on the bottom of your browser window during the checkout process.
We reveal only five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
Credit card information is stored in our database using triple-DES encryption algorithms, to guarantee that, even if someone were able to gain access to the data, nothing useful could be extracted.
