Information We Collect
The data that we regularly collect about users of our Service (e.g., IP address, browser type, pages accessed, duration of visit, etc.) does not necessarily enable us to personally identify you, and that is not our intention. We do collect personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, email address, phone number, and location, when you voluntarily provide it by registering with us, commenting, or using the Service. Once you become a user, you may provide additional information in your profile section. Providing additional information is optional. To facilitate your use of the Service, Mommy may automatically collect certain types of information when you access or use the Service. In order to collect this data, Mommy may utilize automated tools and files such as “cookies.” These automated tools and files may reside on our servers or on your computer or device. If you restrict our ability to use automated tools and files, your ability to access and use all or part of the Service may be limited or disabled completely.
Use of Information
Mommy uses your personally identifiable information primarily to provide you with the Service and to provide customized content on the Service that is of interest to you. The information is also used to verify your authority to access the Service and to contact you when reasonably necessary. Mommy may also use any information you have provided as reasonably necessary to administer or provide customer support for the Service, and to provide you with periodic printed or e-mail communications about new products and services, discounts, special promotions or upcoming events through partners and affiliates of Mommy.com. You may opt-out of receiving some or all non-Service related communications by updating your profile on the Service. Also, your full name and email address may be used when you use the Service to send a message to another user or when commenting through Mommy.com commenting systems. Additionally, we use your email address to contact you on behalf of other friends on the site or for the service of Mommy itself as Mommy deems necessary and appropriate.
Controlling Your Personal Information
When you use our Service, all of the information that you submit, which may include name, email address, photographs and comments, will be publicly available to third parties and we may not have control over what they do with it. By using our Service, you consent to such disclosure. Mommy allows users to view and collect photos and videos posted by friends in their network. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g. user name, real name, e-mail address) via signup or the areas of the Website, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected, correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other posters or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Mommy. Please do not post any personal information on the Website or in other areas that you expect to keep private.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use aggregated information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please see: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
Because any personally identifiable information you submit to Mommy is purely voluntary and should not be of a particularly sensitive nature, we employ our standard security measures with respect to this information and do not use special encryption methods at this time. Mommy user accounts are secured by user-created passwords. Please note that Mommy cannot guarantee the security of user account information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
Collection of Information From Children
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information relating to children. In the event that we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age without prior parental consent, we will take steps to promptly delete such information. By providing your personal information to Mommy, you represent that you are 13 years of age or older.
International Visitors and Customers
The Mommy service and the Website is hosted in the United States. If you are visiting from the European Union (EU) or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring your personal data to the United States which does not have the same data protection laws as the EU and by providing your personal data you consent to:
The transfer of your personal data to the United States as indicated above.
