Privacy Policy

Updated: December 20, 2014

The A4K, Youth Ambassadors For Kid's Club (A4K) is operated by Montlick Media Services, LLC ("MMS") as a public service. The program is sponsored by Montlick & Associates, P.C. , Attorneys at Law (“M&A") as a public service as part of its ongoing commitment to helping families. This Privacy Policy covers use of information collected by the website. Club members may be referred to as "Ambassadors".

MMS is dedicated to safeguarding any personal information collected on the A4K website. We ensure that our privacy policy and our information practices adhere to the United States Children's Online Privacy Protection Act.

To help ensure parents and their children are well informed about the use of any information provided to MMS and the A4K club, and to ensure parents have control over the information collected from a child online, we have developed this Privacy Policy describing the information practices of the A4K Website and of the A4K club, including how we collect, use and disclose personal information.

1. The Information We Collect

A4K Ambassadors: As described in this Privacy Policy, we directly collect from child participants during our A4K application process a child's first and last name, age, birth date, school name, and a parent's name and email address and/or the child's email address ("A4K Information"). This information is for the sole purpose of sending the A4K monthly newsletter, announcing birthday wishes (no birth year), and acknowledging Ambassadors who go beyond expectations in promoting safety among school students. The A4K website does not condition a child's participation in an online activity on the child providing more personal information than is reasonably necessary for that activity.

In addition, the A4K Website may collect additional personally identifiable information ("A4K Information"). The types of Information that may be collected at that time include the purchaser's full name, email address, phone number, and credit card billing information including mailing address in the event a general participant desires to donate to A4K or to purchase A4K merchandise.

We may also request a full name and email address when a user submits a form through the "Contact" portion of the A4K Website so that we may respond to the inquiry. We collect the e-mail address for the sole purpose of responding directly on a one-time basis to a specific inquiry.

Additionally, when visitors come to our site, we may passively collect certain non-personally identifiable computer information, such as the type of computer operating system (e.g., Windows XP or Mac OS), the user's IP Address, the web browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) being used, the frequency with which guests visit various parts of our sites, and information regarding the Internet service provider, in order to make our sites more interesting and useful to you and for various purposes related to our business. We may collect this non-personally identifiable information through the use of software technologies such as unique identifiers or "cookies." Cookies are small text files that we place in visitors' computer browsers to store their preferences. You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won't have access to many features that make your Web experience smoother, and some of our services may not function properly.

Finally, A4K's website collects financial information as set out in Section 5 of this Privacy Policy when visitors purchase an item on our shopping page. We do not use this financial information for any purpose other than processing payments. The financial information that you enter to purchase an item is not stored by us, but, instead, is retained by our payments processing vendor for the purpose of processing credit card payments made.

In the remaining portions of this Privacy Policy, A4K Information and MMS Information are collectively referred to as "PII".

2. How We Use, Disclose, and Store the Information We Collect

In addition to the purposes described in Section 1, we may also use email addresses to enable parents to review PII submitted to us, and to provide notification regarding the site, such as any future amendments to this Privacy Policy. We also may use information in the aggregate to analyze site usage.

We may disclose information where we are required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena, or where we disclose information to service providers or other group companies who provide support for the operations of our website and who do not use or disclose the information for any other purpose. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we also may disclose PII in response to a law enforcement agency's or other public agency's (including schools or children services) request or if we feel that such disclosure may prevent the instigation of a crime, facilitate an investigation related to public safety or protect the safety of a child using our website, protect the security or integrity of our website, or enable us to take precautions against liability.

If we become involved in a merger or business transfer, we may transfer PII to a third party as part of that transaction, to the extent permitted by applicable law.

Finally, we may transfer PII and store it outside of the jurisdiction in which a A4K member or other participants of the Website are located. MMS is located in the United States, and the information collected will be mainly processed and stored there.

3. Collection of Information for Third-Party Sites and Sponsors

We do not allow third-party companies to solicit or advertise to our A4K members or other users of the MMS or A4k Websites.

4. Security

The security of your personal information is important to us. We have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data security, and correctly use the information we collect online. When you enter sensitive information, such as your credit card number, or the A4K membership application form, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Additionally, for information provided to CWAV/A4K in physical form, or via electronic equivalent form such as facsimile, we maintain that information with similar safeguards as appropriate for the information provided.

5. Access to Information, and Objection to Information Collection and Retention

Please contact our Director of Community Programs as provided in Section 7 if you would like to access the PII that we have collected online from you or your child, correct factual errors in such information, request to have this information deleted, or request that we no longer collect or maintain such information.

Please be sure to include your email address and a telephone number where we can reach you. To protect you and your child's privacy and security, we will take reasonable steps to help verify your identity before granting you access to the personal information that we collect and maintain about you or your child.

6. Contact Us

If you have questions or wish to send us comments about this Privacy Policy, please send an e-mail with your questions or comments to: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or write us at: P.O. Box 133226, Atlanta, GA 30333

Please be assured that any personal information that you provide in communications to the above e-mail and postal mail addresses will not be used to send you promotional materials, unless you so request.

7. Effective Date

The privacy policy set out above is effective as of December 20, 2014, and applies to all information previously obtained by MMS/A4K. We reserve the right to change the privacy policy at our sole discretion. MMS/A4K users will be informed of any such change by us posting a new privacy policy on this website and the effective date of any change of privacy policy will be clearly marked. As required by law, we will not use PII in ways that are materially different from the ones described in this Privacy Policy without also providing notification of such practices and obtaining consent to any such different uses. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of a notice on our home page.
