Detailed Privacy Policy

We respect your privacy and your personal information.  It is very important to us here at Kids Science Labs.  We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information, except where required by law or enforcement of our site policies, or to protect ours or others rights, property, or safety.

This privacy policy provides an overview of our policies with regard to your personal information and the manner in which we collect and use it at Kids Science Labs.  This detailed privacy policy covers the information you provide to us while using the Kids Science Labs secure website and the additional information that you may provide to us via offline conversations and emails. 

What information do we collect?

When you register for classes at KSL using our secure website, we do obtain information such as parent and guardian names, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, allergy and medical information, names, and special consideration of our students.  Some of this information, as marked by an asterisk in online and in-person registration forms, is required to manage our operations, while other information is optional and provided to us on a voluntary basis to better understand how to serve you.  If you are uncomfortable providing any of this information, we ask that you contact us immediately or stop by our learning center to make alternative arrangements. 

All customers are welcome to visit our website anonymously and instead register in person at our Lincoln Park learning center, located at 1500 N. Kingsbury St., Chicago, IL 60642, our new South Loop learning center at 1801 S. Indiana St. Chicago, IL 60616 or by phone at (312) 846-1426

How do we use information collected?

Kid Science Labs uses the information we collect for the purposes of understanding our customers and managing our business operations.  This includes using the voluntary emergency contact information in the unexpected circumstances where it might be needed to contact parents and alternative contacts provided for students.

Generally, we do use your information to improve our service to customers, to improve our website, to provide periodic performance tracking on your child and her progress with KSL, and to send periodic emails (non-spam related) to update you on our class schedule, special offers, or clarify issues related to providing service to your child. 

Under no circumstances, except where required by law, enforce our internet policies, or to protect the safety of our customers, do we sell, trade, lend, rent, or provide information to any third-parties. 

How do we protect information collected?

All parent and student registration information provided to us may be stored and encrypted on our internal systems, which can only be accessed with the proper key.  We otherwise do not retail personally identifiable information.  We do use non-personally identifiable information, such as which classes are preferred by different age demographics, for the purposes of understanding the effectiveness of marketing.
