You will receive e-mail communication from Safe Kids only if you have requested it, or if you have signed up for a newsletter, asked for group communication such as our Recall Alerts or made a donation.

Safe Kids and Cookies

To share and promote our content, Safe Kids Worldwide uses third-party services, such as Google AdWords, to place relevant advertising on search results for people looking for information similar to content found on the Safe Kids Worldwide website.

We do this through the use of tracking cookies which are placed on the end-users computer. Safe Kids will only allow the use of such third-party cookies after a visitor has viewed a portion of the Safe Kids website corresponds to an advertisement by the third-party advertiser, such as Google AdWords. 

Any third party advertiser that Safe Kids Worldwide uses, like Google, explicitly and expressly forbids the collection of Personally Identifiable, and Safe Kids will not attempt to make, has not made, and will never make modifications that would enable any such third-party advertiser, like Google AdWords, to collect any such information.

Safe Kids does not have access, and will never seek access, information from other websites our visitors have viewed.  

Any visitor can opt out of most tracking cookies by visiting the Google’s Ads Preferences Manager (https://www.google.com/ads/preferences/). Alternatively, visitors can opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page (http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp).
