Trick or Treat Online

Privacy Policy

We have no interest in collecting or inferring information about individual visitors to this web site.

Data Collected by Us

Our web hosting provider has the server configured to keep basic logs, like almost every web server on the internet. These log records contain:

Data Not Collected by Us

We do not use cookies, site data, web beacons, or browser fingerprinting. We do not attempt to identify individual visitors. We do not ask visitors to provide details about themselves. For example, you do not need an account to enjoy the site. You cannot leave comments or post your own content. We do not ask for demographic information. We make no attempt to determine a visitor’s age.

How We Use the Data We Collect

We might analyze log data for aggregate statistics. For example, we may want to know the total number of visitors on our site, the average length of a visit, which pages are most popular, which browsers our visitors are using, how many visits are from outside the United States, etc.

We do not attempt to identify individual users from the logged data.

If compelled by a legal request, we may have to provide log data to law enforcement or court system.

Data Collected and Used by Others

Most media on our site is hosted by third parties, like YouTube and Vimeo. When you interact with those media elements, those third parties may collect information about your usage. Those third parties have their own privacy policies that describe what information they collect and how they use it.

We have no access to nor interest in the data collected by the third parties.

Advertising

Our web site does not serve advertisements. We’re doing this for fun, not to make money. Media elements hosted by third parties (e.g., YouTube) might show ads in relation to those media elements.

Young Vistors

We make no effort to determine the age of vistors to the web site. We make no effort to collect personally identifiable data for any visitors, so we’re not creating profiles of your children either.

The web site has material that may be enjoyed by children, but it is also made to entertain Halloween enthusiasts of all ages, so other material may contain more intense scares and even gore. We want everyone to find the Halloween fun they would enjoy.

We’ve attempted to separate the more intense items to make it easier for parents and guardians to avoid it as they supervise their child’s visits to the site. But we’ve put no real barriers to more intense material. What you or your child might consider more intense may be different than our judgment.

If you would be providing adult supervision for your child to go door-to-door asking for candy on Halloween night, you probably should be doing the same for their web surfing. Don’t blame us if material on our site frightens your children or induces tears, screams, or nightmares. We will, however, take credit for laughter, joy, and a love of Halloween activities. You’re welcome.
