Thots n Tots (www.thotsntots.com) respects the privacy of individuals with regard to personal data and is committed to protecting the privacy of our users, and strives to provide a safe, secure user experience.
This Privacy Statement relates solely to the online information collection and use practices of our website located at www.thotsntots.com (this “Website”), and not to any subdomains of this Website. We recognise that many visitors and users of this Website are concerned about the information they provide to us, and how we treat that information. This Privacy Statement, which may be updated from time to time, has been developed to address those concerns.
Your use of this Website indicates to us that you have read and accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Statement. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, please contact editor @ thotsntots.com.
What information about you do we collect?
When you visit our Website, you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, and (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse the Website. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our Website’s content or services.
Personally Identifiable Information You Choose to Provide
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. For example, if you indicate an interest in participating in our contests, you are asked to submit your name, telephone number, address and email address, which we retain on file, so that we may send you your prize should you win the contest. We also request your name and email address each time you contact us by clicking on the “Contact” link. We may retain a record of users who have contacted us in order to respond properly to questions or concerns and for purposes of future communications.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information We Collect
Cookies/ Web server logs: Similar to other commercial Websites, our Website utilises standard technology called “cookies” and Web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Cookies are a feature of Web browser software that allows Web servers to recognise the computer used to access a Website. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s Web browser on the user’s hard drive. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Website, and the Websites visited just before and just after our Website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser. However, it is possible that some parts of our Website will not operate correctly if you disable cookies. You should consult with your browser’s provider/manufacturer if you have any questions regarding disabling cookies.
How do we use the information we collect?
We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, and, in some cases, to contact you about our products, features, contests or services.
We use non-identifying information collected on our Website in the aggregate to better understand your use of the Website and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our Website.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorised use of our Website, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this Website or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Privacy protection for children using the Internet
Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on our Website from those we actually know are under the age of 13, nor is any part of our Website targeted to attract anyone under 13. We request that all visitors to our Website who are under 13 not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child’s personally identifiable information from our records.
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorised access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
Consent to transfer
This Website is operated in Malaysia. If you are located outside of the Malaysia, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to Malaysia. By using our Website, participating in any of our services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.

Therefore, we encourage our users to read the privacy statement of each and every Website that collects personally identifiable information.
