Use of IP Addresses. 
Your computer is automatically assigned a number when you are browsing the Internet. This number is called an IP address, and it is used by Web servers to identify your computer.

The Site collects IP addresses for audits of site usage. Our server logs a user IP address when you request a page from the Site or when you volunteer information (e.g. survey information). The tracking of IP addresses provides us with aggregate information about our users, such as the most-frequented pages. We use only aggregate information to continue to provide quality online services that meet the needs of our users, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we may use such information to identify a user if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.

IP addresses are not linked to personal information unless the personal information is provided by you through participation in a poll, a catalog request, or other voluntary submission.

Children’s Guidelines. Raw Silk Living is concerned about the privacy and safety of children when they use the Internet. We will never knowingly request personally identifiable information online from anyone under the age of 18 without prior verifiable parental consent. We encourage parent/guardian(s) of children under 18 years of age to supervise time spent online.

Occasionally, we post activities on the Site that children can participate in and enjoy. For those activities that require personally identifiable information, such as contests and surveys, in compliance with the Federal Trade Commission’s Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, the Site will not condition a child’s participation in an activity on that child disclosing more personally identifiable information than is reasonably necessary to administer the activity. For certain online activities, we may require verifiable parental consent before children under the age of 18 may submit and/or post any information at With these activities, we will notify the respective parent of our Privacy Policy and obtain verifiable parental consent before collecting personally identifiable information from the child, unless we collect only the child’s name and online contact information to: (1) obtain parental consent or provide parents with notice; (2) respond directly on a one-time basis to a child’s specific request; (3) respond more than once to a child’s specific request along with providing parental notice of such use; (4) protect the safety of a child; or (5) comply with legal requirements. When we provide parents with notice and/or seek consent, we also give parents the ability to let us know if they do not want any further use made of the personally identifiable information we have collected from their child. Parents can request to review or have deleted their child’s personally identifiable information from our records, and refuse to permit further use of a child’s personally identifiable information.

Unless we indicate otherwise and obtain prior parental consent, personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 18 will be used solely by Raw Silk Living or agents for internal purposes (such as contest administration and services related to the operation of the Site) and will not be sold or otherwise transferred to third parties. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 18 and has submitted any information to the Site for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.

Information gathered from children under 18 years of age is not collected for marketing or promotional purposes, except when explicitly stated during registration for contests or promotions. Under those exceptions, the information is used solely for the specific contest or promotion. Publication of contest winners’ names requires consent from a parent/guardian for children under 18 years of age. It is our policy never to post on the Site more than a child’s first name, first initial of last name, state, and age or grade.

The Site may contain links to other Web sites with which it is not necessarily affiliated. We exercise care when selecting the Web sites to which we link. However, once you leave the Site through a link to another Web site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the linked site. We are not responsible for the content or practices of any linked site.
