Cookies and Web Beacons
Web beacons are small strings of code that are placed in a web page. Web beacons are most often used in conjunction with cookies to monitor activity on our web site. We use web beacons to track how our customers use our site, as well as track the success of various marketing efforts. The information, once processed, helps us focus our resources on the features that are most popular with our users. We use the information only at the aggregate, not individual, level. In other words, the information we use is not personally identifiable.
At The Online Mom we are committed to protecting our relationship with our web site visitors. That’s why we never trade, sell, or otherwise disseminate any personal information about our visitors, except as part of our own business or that of an affiliate. From time to time we share aggregated and personally identifiable information with our affiliates to assist in our or their marketing and merchandising efforts. We may also disclose your personally identifiable information when we believe the law requires such disclosure, in response to legal process and law enforcement requests, and as necessary to protect the property, interests, and rights of The Online Mom, its affiliates and others.
At times we may contract with unaffiliated third parties to assist us in managing and maintaining our visitor information. At no time will we authorize those parties to use your information for any other purpose. Additionally, we may rent or sell to third parties aggregate, non-personally identifiable information about visitors to our site. Except as set forth in this policy, at no time will we disseminate personally identifiable information to unaffiliated third parties for any reason. If this changes, we will contact you via the most recent e-mail address you have provided to us. At that time, you will have the opportunity to remove your information from our database.
Except as described above, we will not share, rent or sell any information with any other party for any reason.
We may share with third parties certain pieces of aggregated, non-personal information, such as the number of users who searched for a particular term, for example, or how many users clicked on a particular advertisement. Such information does not identify you individually.
Please Contact Us for any additional questions about the management or use of personal data.
What is aggregated non-personal information?
