however, if you would like more information regarding our products
and services, you may be required to first register with Neustar.
If you do register, we will request certain business information,
including your name, address, and e-mail address. This information
will enable Neustar to contact you regarding the products and
services provided, as well as provides us with aggregate demographic
data that Neustar uses to improve the services offered to users.
In addition to registration, Neustar may, from time to time,
request personal information for purposes such as the provision
of customer service, network management, surveys, offers of
related services, and other exchanges of information.
Neustar gathers information about all users collectively, such
as what areas users visit most frequently and what services
users access most often. Neustar automatically logs IP addresses,
session sources, and other data which tracks users' access to
WWW.KIDS.US and the other channels and Neustar sites. We analyze
these logs in order to understand aggregate user behavior as
well as for system performance monitoring. These logs are analyzed
for the overall, aggregate trends they reveal about our customers,
not for the individual user behaviors.

with legal process, (ii) enforce the service terms and conditions,
or (iii) protect the rights, property, or personal safety of
Neustar, its customers, or the public.

of our users and to distribute statistics and general marketplace
information about Neustar. These demographics will always represent
aggregate information and will never identify a specific user.
Certain non-personal information regarding users is recorded
by the operation of the Internet servers hosting the Neustar
sites. Neustar may disclose aggregated user statistics in order
to describe the service to prospective partners, advertisers,
and other third parties, and for other lawful purposes.
