This privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) applies to the treatment of personally identifiable information submitted by, or otherwise obtained from, you in connection with the websites noted below (“Websites”). By using or otherwise accessing the Websites, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with this Statement, please do not use our Websites. This policy applies to the following websites administered by BSM Media:
The information we collect
We may collect personal information from you such as your name or email address. For example, you may voluntarily submit information to the Website by leaving a comment, subscribing to a newsletter, submitting a contact form or signing up as an influencer. We will store your username, but your password will not be visible in our records.
We create your profile based upon the information you voluntarily provide. The types of personal information collected could include:
- Your name
- Email address
- Home and mailing address
- Social networks (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc.)
- Family demographics (number of children and birthdates, ethnicity, community engagement activities, etc.)
We automatically collect certain information about you and the device with which you access the Websites. For example, when you use the Websites, we will log your IP address, operating system type, browser type, referring website, pages you viewed, and the dates/times when you accessed the Websites. We may also collect information about actions you take when using the Websites, such as links clicked.
We may log information using cookies, which are small data files stored on your browser by the Websites. We may use both session cookies, which expire when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which stay on your browser until deleted, to provide you with a more personalized experience on the Websites.
How we use the information
We may use the information collected in the following ways:
- To operate and maintain the Websites;
- To send you promotional information, such as newsletters. Each email promotion will provide information on how to opt-out of future mailings;
- To send you campaign communications, such as campaign alerts, invitations to participate in campaigns, invitations to participate in surveys, administrative emails, confirmation emails, follow-up emails, technical notices, updates on policies, or security alerts;
- To respond to your comments or inquiries;
- To provide you with user support;
- To track and measure advertising on the Websites;
- To protect, investigate, and deter against unauthorized or illegal activity.
We may share your information with third parties when you explicitly authorize us to share your information.
The Websites may use third-party service providers to service various aspects of the Websites. Each third-party service provider’s use of your personal information is dictated by their respective privacy policies. The Websites currently use the following third-party service providers:
- Google Analytics – this service tracks Website usage and provides information such as referring websites and user actions on the Websites. Google Analytics may capture your IP address, but no other personal information is captured by Google Analytics.
Except when required by law, we will not sell, distribute, or reveal your email addresses or other personal information without your consent; however, we may disclose or transfer personal information collected through the Websites to third parties who acquire all or a portion of our business, which may be the result of a merger, consolidation, or purchase of all or a portion of our assets, or in connection with any bankruptcy or reorganization proceeding brought by or against us.
From time to time, we may use anonymous data, which does not identify you alone, or when combined with data from other parties. This type of anonymous data may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses. Examples of this anonymous data may include analytics or information collected from cookies.
Publicly visible information
If you leave a comment, certain information may be publicly visible. To create a user profile, you must choose a username and password and input your email address for profile confirmation. Your email address will never be available publicly. At your option, you may also add an avatar, a profile description, and a link to your website.
Users may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies, by the Websites, by using a corresponding setting of your internet browser and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of our Website may be entirely usable.
Newsletters: On the Websites, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Websites to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior will not be passed on to third parties.
Rights related to your personal information
Opt-out: You may opt-out of future email communications by following the unsubscribe links in our emails. You may also notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be removed from our mailing list.
Access: You may access the personal information we have about you by submitting a request to email@example.com.
Amend: You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to amend or update your personal information. Alternatively, if you are a member of MomSelect, you may log into your profile and update your information there.
Please note that we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes or to complete transactions, or when required by law.
Sensitive personal information
The Websites do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 without the expressed consent of the parent or guardian.
Third-party services or websites
The Websites may permit you to link to other services or websites. Such third-party services/websites are not under BSM Media’s control, and such links do not constitute an endorsement by BSM Media of those other services/websites or the services offered through them. The privacy and security practices of such third-party services/websites linked to the Websites are not covered by this Privacy Statement, and BSM Media is not responsible for the privacy or security practices or the content of such websites.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We use commercially reasonable safeguards to protect your personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Your information may be transferred to and maintained on computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the privacy laws may not be as protective as those in your jurisdiction. If you are located outside the United States and choose to provide information to us, BSM Media transfers personal information to the United States and processes it there. Your consent to this Privacy Statement followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.
