About Us

Adventure in a Box is an online educational site founded in 2014 by Liska Myers and Jeffrey Myers. We write about DIY projects, crafts and educational activities for families with children. We also have a shop where you can buy products made by us. Most of them are digital products, but we also sell and ship our shadow puppets.

How We Collect Information About You

Information is collected via log files, cookies, leaving comments on the site, purchasing a product via our shop or subscribing to our newsletter.

What Information We Collect About You

Like most websites around the world we use Google Analytics to process information about the number of visitors on our site, and their behaviour. When you browse through the pages of the website, Google Analytics records your approximate location (country and city), the type device you are using (Mobile or Desktop), name of the device (iPad, iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, etc.), operating system (Windows 7, Windows 10, iOS, etc.), and browser (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.). None of this data can be used to identify you. We use this data to understand where most of our visitors find our website and how they use it.

Leaving a Comment

When you leave a comment, in addition to the previously mentioned information, we collect information on your name, email address, your website, and the country you are from. If you prefer, you can leave an anonymous comment. We only use this information to identify you as a comment maker and to notify you of the reply if any was required. Your email address is never shown in the comment section.

Your details will remain in the database unless we remove it or the article is removed from the site. You may request that we delete the comment and remove you details at any time. Please contact us to ask for this to be carried out.

Purchasing a Product

When you purchase a product through our digital shop, in addition to the previously mentioned information, we collect information on your name, email address, and the country you are from. It is stored in our store database under your account name. It is done so that you could come back and re-download your product. Contact us if you need it removed.

When you purchase a physical product in our shadow puppet shop, we also ask for your shipping address and your phone. This is the information we need to mail the package to you. It is stored in our store database. Contact us if you need it removed.

All financial details are collected via PayPal and Stripe which does not retain any financial information once the transaction has been processed.

Subscribing to Our Newsletter

We send emails once or twice a week. Most of our emails include only the links to the new articles on our blog as well as the links to the old articles we find relevant at different times of a year (Halloween or Christmas, summer activities or winter crafts). Very rarely (a few times a year), we may include information about products created by other bloggers or companies if we feel that it would be a valuable information to our subscribers.

If you choose to join one of our regular newsletters, following one of our opt-in forms (like the one in the sidebar), then your email address is required so that we can send you the email. We also ask for your first name, so that we may address you personally in our weekly email. Feel free to pick a nickname for that field.

Your data is collected and then passed to our email service provider MailerLite. Within the email service provider we use tags to track the pages that you visit and actions that you take within the emails so that we can provide a more personalized email service to you.

Details that we hold including your name, email address and where you have visited will never be passed to anyone else. You may unsubscribe at any time from our newsletters using the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email or you can contact us and ask to be removed.

Cookies

Cookies are used all throughout the web, and Adventure in a Box uses them as well. Cookies is a code that is used to track your use of our site and provide the best possible experience for you.

Specifically we use them for

  • Our commenting system so that you don’t have to always enter you details
  • Collect data as part of Google Analytics so that we can see who has visited our website

You can chose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in your browser. However, it may negatively impact your ability to browse our website as well as other websites.

Please, obtain your parents permission before entering any personal information on our website.

When We May Transfer Your Personal Data

We will not transfer your personal data unless we are under legal obligation to do so.

If You Wish to Be Removed from Our Database

At any point you may ask that we remove your information from our systems. Please contact us with your requirements, and we will do so within a week. The same applies for what information we hold about you and can be identified as being about you.
