All material on this site, including, but not limited to images, illustrations, audio clips and video clips, is protected by copyrights which are owned and controlled by Artona or by other parties that have licensed their material to Artona (the “Copyrights”).

Artona is very respectful about the privacy concerns of the visitors to its sites on the Internet. Please see our Customer Privacy Statement at (Privacy Statement). This Website places a "cookie" in the browser files of an Artona user’s computer. The cookie itself does not contain any personally identifying information. Although the cookie could enable Artona to relate a user’s use of an Artona site to information that the user has specifically and knowingly provided, Artona does not do so for any kids’ sites. Users should be aware that when they voluntarily disclose personal information (e.g., user name, e-mail address, telephone number) on the bulletin boards or in the chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other people.

A Special Note for Parents Concerning Privacy

On sites specifically designed for children, Artona makes a special effort to encourage children to consult with their parents before furnishing data. However, Artona believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a kid-friendly online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address and other personal information without parental permission.
