Privacy Policy

Updated July 21, 2014

This Privacy Policy applies to the following websites (jointly and severally referred to herein as "the Site"):,, and The Site is owned, operated, licensed or controlled by LAIKA, LLC. ("LAIKA"). We know that you care about how information about you is used and shared, and your privacy is of the utmost importance to LAIKA. We promise that we will use information about you carefully and sensibly. This Privacy Policy describes the information that we collect about visitors to our Site, how we use that information and how we protect that information. It also discusses certain choices you have regarding your personal information. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected on this Site and does not apply to information collected by LAIKA through any other means.



Overview. We at LAIKA believe it essential that parents are involved in their children’s online experiences. The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires us to inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use, and disclose personal information from children less than 13 years of age. This Section describes our practices with respect to information we collect from you, as well as from your child. Under COPPA, we may not, and we do not, condition your child's participation in any LAIKA activity on the provision of more information than is reasonably necessary for your child to participate in that activity. This Section is in addition to the other provisions of this Privacy Policy, which will continue to apply.

Except as otherwise provided in these Terms, or for purposes of facilitating internal operations of the Site, we do not collect information about you or your child when you visit our Site unless you choose to provide information to us. When the Site needs to collect information about a child under 13 years old, COPPA required information and instructions will be provided by the specific Site page that collects information about the child. The Site page will specify exactly what the information will be used for, who will see it, and how long it will be kept.

There are several exceptions that permit collection of a child's email address without receiving parental consent in advance:


Automatically Generated Information. Whenever you visit the Site, we receive and store information about that visit. For example, we obtain information about you and your Web browser, including:

There are companies that provide tools that allow you to visit websites anonymously. While use of these tools may prevent us from providing you with personalized service, you should be aware that this option is available.

Information You Provide. When you visit our Site, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information in order to take advantage of the products and services offered through the Site, including without limitation: your name, address, birth date, telephone and fax numbers, email address, credit card information, and communication preferences. Of course, we also collect the information that you choose to provide when you submit a transmission or other materials to the Site. You may always choose not to provide the information we request; however, you may then be unable to take advantage of the features and services we offer on our Site. If you are under 13 years of age, you and your parent must review the section below titled “Policy Regarding Children”, which will govern your provision of personally identifiable information.

Information from other Sources. From time to time we may purchase or otherwise acquire information about you from other sources and add it to our database, including updated address information, customer lists, email address lists, etc.


We understand that your personally identifiable information is private and confidential. That’s why we want you to know what information we need to offer our services to you, and how we use that information. We use information about you in order to provide the services described in our Site, and for internal operations. In addition, we may share customer information with our affiliates and as described below.

No Sale of Personal Information. Be assured that we will not sell your personal information to others except in connection with a sale of our assets, or a change in control transaction involving LAIKA.

Third Party Service Providers. We may, from time to time, engage others to provide services to LAIKA, to you, and to other visitors to our Site. For example, we may engage other companies to host, operate and maintain our Site, analyze data, and provide marketing assistance. We will give those service providers access to your personal information, but only to the extent necessary to do their jobs. Although we use reasonable precautions to ensure that our third party service providers protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee that those companies will protect your personal information to the same extent described in this Privacy Policy.

Statistical Information. LAIKA shares some information about its visitors with business partners, sponsors and other third parties; however, that information is statistical in nature, it is aggregated, and does not identify specific individuals.

Emails. From time to time, we may send you email messages, to keep you apprised of your, Site developments, to inform you of new offers, and to deliver email newsletters to which you have subscribed. We may use a bulk email service to distribute that information. Included in each of these messages are simple instructions on how to remove yourself from these mailings if you do not wish to receive them in the future.

Mailings. If you supply us with your postal address, you may receive periodic mailings from LAIKA, with information on new products and services, or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, please let us know via e-mail at

Other Disclosures/Use. There are some situations where we may need to disclose information to organizations or entities not described in our Privacy Policy here. We will disclose your personal information if we believe, in good faith, that it is required to do so: (a) by law or to comply with a subpoena or court order; (b) to protect and defend our rights or property; or (c) in an emergency to protect the personal safety of our customers, visitors or the public.

These Web beacons often work in conjunction with cookies but browsers can be set to refuse cookies or to provide warning whenever cookies are being received.

Do Not Track Signals
