Research Kitchen respects the privacy of its online visitors and recognizes the importance of providing a secure environment for them.
Personal information collected to gain access to the Educational Materials on the Service consists only of at most a valid email address. We also provide so called “managed accounts” which do not require any personal information at all. However, one valid email address is required for the User who manages any such accounts.
Visitors purchasing products will be required to provide additional information such as a name and billing address.
For a normal account we will ask you to create a password with your Account. For managed accounts this is not necessary. You may further provide other, non-personal, information such as your nickname, date-of-birth, gender, and/or platform preferences on your personal Profile Page. This information is provided on a completely voluntary basis and will be combined with your personal information, i.e. your email address or managed account address.
In addition to the information you provide, Research Kitchen may also collect information during during your visit to our websites with Automatic Data Collection Tools using embedded Web links. These tools collect certain traffic information that your browser sends to a website, such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived. They may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address. Research Kitchen may use this information to generate aggregate statistics about its user community and may provide such information to advertisers and/or our partners.
The personal information you provide Research Kitchen will allow us to fulfill your product or service order; alert you of new products or services, features, or enhancements; handle/route your customer service or technical support questions or issues; and/or notify you of upgrade opportunities, promotions, or special events and offers.
We may also use your personal information for internal marketing, profiling, or demographic purposes, so we can adapt our products and services to better suit your needs. We do this to better understand and serve our customers.
We will never communicate with managed account holders. Only the manager of these accounts and other normal account holders may receive communications as set out below.
Please be aware that we cannot control the activities of third parties to whom we provide data, and as such we cannot guarantee that they adhere to the same privacy and security procedures as Research Kitchen.
Research Kitchen may need to disclose your personal information to third party vendors to fulfill product orders or prizes, to process mailings, or to process, analyze, and/or store data on Research Kitchen’s behalf. We will attempt to ensure that these entities do not use your personal information for any other purpose, and that they have agreed to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of the personal information they obtain from us. These service providers may not use your personal information for their own marketing purposes.
As with any business, your personal information is also an asset of Research Kitchen and will become part of our normal business records. As such, we may also disclose your personal information to a third party if we decide to sell a line of business to that third party, so you can continue to receive service and information in connection with that line of business with as little disruption as possible. Similarly, in the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganization, bankruptcy, or other similar event, your personal information may be transferred to Research Kitchen 's successor or assign.
Research Kitchen allows you to control the way that we use personal identifying information that we might obtain. At the time you provide personal information, Research Kitchen may give you the option of declining any future offers or information about new products, promotions, or services.
As detailed above, we do not share our customer's personal information with unaffiliated third parties for direct marketing purposes.
RoboMind Academy does not knowingly collect any personal information. To be extra safe for children, the RoboMind Academy also features so called “managed accounts”. These accounts, which are typically created and controlled by a parent or teacher, do not even require a valid user email address. The account manager of such an account can remove it at any time by using the [delete] button next to a managed account on his/her Vouchers Page. If the account manager removes his/her own personal account, all managed users will also be removed automatically. By design we cannot communicate directly with any managed account holder. Only the account manager may receive any communications by us.
The only personal information in any account, including managed accounts, may be the name of the Account Holder. This name is only used to create a diploma in the Account Holder’s name if a course has been completed successfully. This name is provided on a completely voluntary basis and is not required in any way. As a consequence you may use any alias you want.
We recognize a special obligation to protect personal information about young children. We urge parents to instruct their children to never give out their real names, addresses, or phone numbers, without permission, when online. Teenagers under the age of 17 and over the age of 12 should encourage their parents to review this policy and to contact us if they would like to evoke our opt-out policy or to raise any concerns.
Parenting kids who are always connected via multiple methods can be difficult, especially in our fast-paced world of changing technologies. The following web sites offer guidance to teachers, parents and children to use the Internet in a safe and responsible manner.
