We at MomsDIY believe that online privacy is crucial for the ongoing success of the Internet as a service, commercial and entertainment medium. We may collect personal information from you primarily to make using MomsDIY services easier and more satisfying. In registering for certain services offered by MomsDIY you may be asked to provide your name, e-mail address, zip code, gender and information about what you do and don’t like. We request this information from you so that we can provide you with the personalized service necessary to meet MomsDIY’s goals. However, unless you designate otherwise, the personally identifiable information you provide will be known only to you and to MomsDIY. We will always ask you before providing this information to anyone else. If others want this information, including your name or your email address, we will provide it only if you give us permission to do so.
From time to time, MomsDIY may introduce new products and services to its users. To the extent these new products and services affect this policy, this policy will be updated and you will be informed of these updates and any privacy conditions related to these services.
What information does MomsDIY gather/track and how is it used?
Information gathered online can generally be categorized as either anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be traced back to a specific individual. For example, MomsDIY knows how many searches are conducted each day at each of its Web sites but does not know the names, e-mail addresses or gender of the people asking the questions.
Personally identifiable information is information you provide that lets us know specific facts about you so that we can customize the information MomsDIY delivers to you accordingly. This information can include your name, address, zip code, age, etc. It is our belief that you will find it beneficial to provide us with personal information so that your experience with MomsDIY is more satisfying.
Gathering and Use of Anonymous Information
Each time a visitor comes to a MomsDIY Web site, we may collect some information to improve the overall quality of the online experience, including product monitoring, product improvement, and targeted advertising. At the MomsDIY Web sites, we may collect the visitor’s domain name, referral data (e.g., we may record the address of the last URL a user visited prior to clicking through to a MomsDIY Web site), and browser and platform type.
In addition to collecting these types of information, MomsDIY may collect aggregate queries for internal reporting and targeted advertising. We also count, track, and aggregate the visitor’s activity into our analysis of general traffic flows at our sites (e.g. tracking where traffic comes from, how traffic flows within the MomsDIY properties, etc.). To these ends, we may merge information about you into group data, which may then be shared on an aggregated basis with our advertisers; but MomsDIY will not disclose your individual identity or personal data without your permission. When MomsDIY does present aggregated information to outside companies, no one will be able to identify or contact you.
Gathering and Use of Personally Identifiable Information
MomsDIY requests that in the event that we use registered services registrants for its Member services provide personal information so that we can provide personalized service. As we have already stated, personally identifiable information is not shared with third parties unless MomsDIY has your permission to do so. In addition, MomsDIY may occasionally sponsor sweepstakes, contests, or other events that require the collection, processing, and storage of individual contact and demographic information to be used for the event. PMomsDIY may sometimes co-sponsors these events with other companies, in which case the user’s individual contact and demographic information is likely to be shared with participating sponsors. A registrant’s personal contact and demographic information will not be released to third-party or non-participating organizations without the user’s consent, and MomsDIY will request that co-sponsors of such events maintain the privacy of the registrants’ information.
When appropriate, users will be given the opportunity to receive information from third-party organizations in connection with services or events offered by MomsDIY. This option may be made available through MomsDIY registration and/or through registration processes maintained by a participating third party. In all cases, you will be informed before you register for the event or service that a third party will be receiving the registration information you provide and you will have the option not to participate in any service or event that requires third party involvement.
Use Of MomsDIY Cookies
When we do present information to our advertisers, it is in the form of grouped statistics compiled from our users’ answers to survey questions and on-site behavior. MomsDIY will not disclose the contact or demographic information of any individual user to advertisers or any other outside organization without the express permission of the individual.
On occasion, MomsDIY will make available to potential MomsDIY advertisers and research firms aggregated results from research it has conducted on its user base. Once again, MomsDIY will only provide such demographic information on an aggregated basis and does not disclose individual member profiles without user consent.
Special Policy With Regards to Information from Children Under Thirteen
In accordance with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), MomsDIY will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive information (with parental consent) from users under the age of 13, we will never voluntarily share their personally identifiable information with third parties, regardless of their stated preference given at registration.
