Your Account with Bilingual Birdies
Creating an Account
On Bilingual Birdies, we allow various Providers to post individual classes, semester-long classes, camps, and other children’s activities (each an “Activity” and collectively “Activities”) for you and your child to enjoy. You don’t need to create an account on Bilingual Birdies in order to browse through our Activities. However, if you want to sign-up for an Activity through Bilingual Birdies, you will need to create an account.
Bilingual Birdies powers Providers registration, check-out and payments systems. To book a class, you will be adding your account information to the Provider’s contacts as well as to Bilingual Birdies. To place an order on a provider’s site who we partner with, you will be adding your name, email, child’s name, birthdate, address, primary phone, credit card as well as other information requested by the Provider. This information is stored in the Bilingual Birdies database. If you use the same account to buy class at another provider within the Bilingual Birdies eco-system, all information may be accessible with the other provider (except your credit card).
In order to create an account for Bilingual Birdies you’ll need to provide us with your email address, phone number, and username. You may also be required to provide your child’s name and birthday, as well as your address and billing information for any payments. By creating an account, you’re agreeing to a few common sense rules and acknowledgements:
By creating an account with Bilingual Birdies, you automatically opt in to receive email communications regarding Bilingual Birdies. Some of those emails may relate to Activities that you register for on Bilingual Birdies. Other emails may be promotional in nature. While you cannot opt-out of transactional emails—such as order confirmations and specific communication about your classes—if you book an Activity, you can opt-out of receiving our promotional emails by clicking an unsubscribe link found at the bottom of our promotional emails.
You’re responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access Bilingual Birdies and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and symbols) with your account. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above.
Please contact your Provider directly to answer any questions you have about signing up for and registering an account with Bilingual Birdies.
No Agency Relationship
By creating an account with Bilingual Birdies, or using our Platform, you are not creating an agency, partnership, joint venture, employment, or franchisee relationship with our Company. You further acknowledge that by registering for an Activity through Bilingual Birdies, no confidential, fiduciary, contractually implied, or other relationship is created with us other than pursuant to these Terms.
Billing and Payment
By booking a class or activity on bilingualbirdies.com you are responsible for paying any and all applicable fees for the Activities, as indicated on Bilingual Birdies at the time of registration.
Generally, our fees are nonrefundable. We may, at our discretion, provide a refund to customers under certain circumstances. Please contact your Provider directly for consideration. If refunded, we reserve the right to charge you a fee to cover the cost of any Activity you may have attended prior to cancellation. Any additional discounts or refunds that we may choose to provide are in our sole discretion and do not entitle you to any future discounts or refunds for similar instances in the future.
We reserve the right to adjust our prices at any time. If we ever need to change our prices, we will let you know either through Bilingual Birdies or email.

We often utilize links and other tools to connect users to third party services and websites, such as Providers, advertisers, special offers, classes, camps, or other events or Activities that are not owned or controlled by Bilingual Birdies (individually a “Third Party Service,” collectively the “Third Party Services”). We have no control over the content and policies of these Third Party Services, and in no event shall we be held responsible or liable for the accuracy, reliability, or currentness of any third party’s content or policies.

We retain the exclusive right to add to, modify, or cancel the availability of any Third Party Service.

For example, we may collect information, including your name, address, phone number, email, child’s name and birthday, and credit card information, as well as any other information you provide to us, in order to process the transaction. We may also collect this information for marketing or other business purposes. This information may be shared with third parties for the same purposes.

Cookies, Web Beacons, and Local Storage
Bilingual Birdies may incorporate technology such as cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, and local storage to collect and store information.
Web beacons are tiny graphic objects embedded in a web page or email, which allow us to check that a user has viewed a page on Bilingual Birdies or an email.
We may use web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about our Platform. Web beacons may be used within the Platform to track email open rates, web page visits, or form submissions. In some cases, we tie the information gathered by web beacons to Personally Identifiable Information. For example, we use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
Flash and HTML5 Local Storage
We may use local shared objects, such as Flash cookies, or local storage objects, available using HTML5, to store information and preferences on your computer. Third Parties Services (defined below) may also provide certain features on our Platform to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity that also use Flash cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information.
In addition to the above ways we collect information, it is conceivable that we may receive information about you from other sources, such as public databases, strategic and joint marketing partners, social media platforms, people with whom you are friends or otherwise connected on social media platforms, as well as from other third parties. For example, if you elect to connect your social media account to your Bilingual Birdies account, certain information from your social media account may be shared with us, including information that’s part of your profile or your friends’ profiles.

Online Tracking and How We Respond To Do Not Track Signals
Online tracking is the collection of data about an individual’s Internet activity used to deliver targeted advertisements and for other purposes.
Do Not Track Signal
Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature, which provides websites with a signal that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity and behavior tracked. If an online service elects to respond to a particular DNT signal, the service may refrain from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and there is currently no industry consensus as to what constitutes a DNT signal. For these reasons, many website operators, including Bilingual Birdies, do not take action to respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com
If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out. If you would like more information about this practice and to opt out of it on the particular device from which you are accessing this policy, go to http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, http://www.aboutads.info/choices and http://preferences-mgr.truste.com / to opt out in desktop and mobile web browsers. You may download the AppChoices app at www.aboutads.info/appchoices to opt out in mobile apps. Please note that opting out does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.
Even if you disable your account, or change your Personally Identifiable information, we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such change or deletion (e.g., when you make a purchase, you may not be able to change or delete the Personally Identifiable Information provided until after the completion of such purchase). There may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed so that Bilingual Birdies will continue to function properly or because it would be burdensome to delete.
If you are a Customer of one of our Providers and would no longer like to be contacted by a Provider, or would like to access, correct, amend, or delete inaccurate Personally Identifiable Information held by a Provider, please contact the Provider that you interact with directly.
The security of Personally Identifiable Information is a high priority for us. We maintain our Platform and all associated data with technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect against loss, unauthorized access, destruction, misuse, modification, and improper disclosure. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have any questions about the security of your interaction with us (if, for example, you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), you can contact us at [email protected]
