At SantaSearch, we believe that greater protection of personal privacy on the web
will not only protect consumers but also increase consumer confidence, ultimately
increasing participation in online activities. We endeavor to educate users about how to
protect their privacy when using the Web. Our information collection practices are
Letters to Santa.
When a user writes a letter to Santa, personal information is collected. The information is retained after submission.
Greetings Cards and Tell a Friend.
SantaSearch welcomes all of its users to send greeting cards to their friends. While
users are required to provide their names and e-mail addresses to utilize this service,
that information is only temporarily retained by SantaSearch. It is also forwarded to
the recipients of the greeting cards.
Use of Information.
We may disclose personally identifiable information to third parties when required by law
or in the event such information is relevant to judicial or government investigations or
proceedings, or otherwise necessary to protect our website or the safety of its users.
Finally, SantaSearch may also use information obtained from cookies to perform
statistical analyses of aggregate user behavior, but personally identifiable information
is not used in that instance. We may use that information for internal purposes to improve content and design.
