We at Ponylabs and our parent organization, Shark Bite Entertainment, LLC (hereinafter referred to as Ponylabs) have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to protecting the privacy of the personal information we gather from our registered users and child users (under the age of 13 years), and the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of child users.

Ponylabs recognizes that our users have legitimate concerns about privacy. This concern for privacy becomes even more important when the users are children under the age of 13 years. We support the guidelines and requirements of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) which became law on April 21, 2000.

All children under the age of 13 years must have parental and/or legal guardian consent in order for a child under the age of 13 years to join and utilize the services of Ponylabs.

What We Do With The Personal Information We Collect:

For Contest Winners:

We may on occasion run contests on our site in which we give the opportunity for registered users to enter the contest and win prizes. Prizes awarded to winners will be shipped to the address on record of the winning user (Ponylabs registered member).

For Administrative and Operations Purposes:

We sometimes use email addresses and phone numbers to contact a user or child user's parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) regarding administrative matters. Among other things, we also use personally identifiable information for billing purposes; to personalize our service; to anticipate and resolve problems with our service; to investigate activity that may violate our user agreement (the PonyLabs’ Terms of Use); and to enhance the capabilities of our internal security systems.

The user and child user and parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) contact information may be used to contact the user and/or child user and/or the child user's parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) when necessary for Ponylabs disciplinary notices and reports. Among other things, these notices will include changes in Ponylabs policies, online behavior reports, and disciplinary action notices.

We also track the total number of visitors to our site in an aggregate form to allow us to update and improve our site, and tell other people something about the numbers of people who come to Ponylabs. Personally identifiable information is not extracted in this process.

For Advertising, Promotional, and Marketing Purposes:

We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about our users or child users, their parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) to any third party. We do, however, aggregate personally identifiable information (this means any one user is one of the bunch, no information is singled out) and disclose such information in aggregate to advertisers and for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to personally identify our users or child users, their parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s). Certain information is not disclosed in aggregate at all. That personally identifiable information which is not disclosed at all in aggregate includes:

    1. For users and child users: First and last name, User Name, Password, email address, and street address, phone number.
    2. For parent(s) or legal guardian(s) of child users: First and last names, email address, street address, phone number.

Reviewing and/or Terminating Personally Identifiable Information:

At any time the user may request and have his/her personal information and Ponylabs account deleted and refuse to allow any further collection or use of personal information by clicking on “Contact Us” and instructing Ponylabs to delete the user account and personal information. Parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of a child user may elect to review the child's personal information, ask to have it deleted and refuse to allow any further collection or use of the child's information by clicking on “Contact Us” and instructing Ponylabs that the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) would like to review and/or cancel the child users personal information and account. Additionally, at any time the parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) of a child user may request that Ponylabs terminate, revoke, or cancel the child user's registration with Ponylabs. When a child user's parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) terminate, revoke, or cancel the child user's registration with Ponylabs, all personally identifiable information collected and stored on the Ponylabs domain server for the child user(s) and the child user(s) parent(s) and/or legal guardian(s) is deleted from computer memory. Additionally, the child user's accessibility to any part of Ponylabs will be blocked.
