How we collect information
This site collects no personally identifying information about you except when you specifically provide it to us. Examples of when you voluntarily submit this kind of information include when you fill out the registration page, subscribe for a service, make a purchase, sign up for newsletters, send us feedback, or post in our chat rooms or message boards. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information on bulletin boards or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other Internet users. We do not bear any responsibility for any actions or policies of third parties.
In addition, if you decide to pay online for one of our products using a credit card, we will need to collect additional data, including a credit card number, the three- or four-digit number of the back of your card (for security purposes), your home address, and phone number. This credit card number will be processed immediately using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. If you would like to purchase any of our products, but do not wish to pay online using a credit card, there are a variety of other methods for payment, including phone, mail, fax, and, for our educational products, by school purchase order. We will not sell, share, or provide your credit card information to anyone, nor we will use the above information for any purpose other than the processing of your payment. For your added security, we do not store any credit card information, including any or all of the credit card number, in our database.
We also sometimes collect anonymous aggregated data to analyze Web activity to better tailor our Web site to our visitors’ needs. For example, we track the number of people who view each page to learn which features are the most popular. But in these, and almost all other instances, we do not obtain personal information about you.
What kind of information do cookies from the ALEX website store?
Cookies, a random ID that identifies your account to the ALEX website, store your random cookie ID and your user name, both of which are required to access our site. These cookies do not store such personal data as your actual name or password.
How secure is information about you?
All transactions involving purchases are completed on our secure server. Jellyvision uses 128-bit Secure Socket Layer encryption. When you’re in secure mode, your computer and our server begin communicating, sending data back and forth in an encrypted format. The encryption features of browser software are powerful and protect the security of this data as it is transmitted to our server. Your browser in secure mode will display a URL address beginning “http://” rather than the standard “http://”. The “s” stands for “secure.” In Microsoft Internet Explorer, you’ll see a padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser window when the browser is in secure mode. In Netscape Navigator, the unlocked padlock symbol on the bottom right of the navigator window will change to a locked padlock symbol.
Again, we store no part of your credit card number in our database for your added security.
What information can I access?
You can access and change all of your information that we store, including password, user name, and email address.
What choices do I have?
You can choose not to give us the information, but you will be unable to take advantage of our online store
What information will ALEX or Jellyvision never ask for?
Neither ALEX nor Jellyvision will request sensitive information such as a social security number, a Personal Identification Number (PIN) from a bank or credit card, or a driver’s license number. We also don’t ask for a home phone number or address, unless it is in conjunction with an online credit card purchase.
How we use and disclose the information you provide
We are committed to providing you with the best possible user experience and, therefore, one of the key uses of your personal information is to communicate with you. We use email communication to alert you as to the status of your account(s), inform you of helpful new ways for using our tools, announce improvements to our services, inform you of other products we offer, or inform you of special offers specifically related to products that may be of interest. We may also contact you by email for research purposes so that we can continually improve and update our site, products, and our services based on your input.
HEY KIDS! Please don’t give us any information about yourself. You’ll need to ask your parents to do that for you. Thanks! Meetalex.com does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell some children’s products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use meetalex.com only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice will change also.
