Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to SmartMom. So we’ve developed a Privacy Policy that covers how we collect, use, disclose, transfer and store your information. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices and let us know you have any questions.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person.
You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with SmartMom or a SmartMom affiliated company. SmartMom and it’s affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with this Privacy Policy. They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve our products, services, content and advertising.

Here are some examples of the types of personal information SmartMom may collect and how we may use it.

What personal information we collect

When you create a SmartMom account, register an existing third-party account (such as Facebook or Twitter) with SmartMom, download a software update, interact with the SmartMom products, or participate in an online survey, we may collect a variety of information, including your name, location, school and other affiliations, postal address, phone number, email address, contact preferences, and friend lists.

When you send communications, or invite others to join SmartMom, SmartMom may collect the information you provide about those people such as name, postal address, email address and phone number.

How we use your personal information

SmartMom may share certain personal information as a part of providing our services.

We may share your personal information and payment information with third-party credit card processors, banks, payment processors, delivery services and others as needed to process, deliver, and administrate any purchases you make through our system, or through our affiliates.

We may share your real name and location with other SmartMom users. In addition, other SmartMom users may be able to see your list of designers, styles, and other content.

With your permission, we may send information about your activity and the content you create via push notifications, Facebook messages, Twitter messages, emails, and other communication methods.

With your permission, we may send you information about other users’ activities and content via push notifications, Facebook messages, Twitter messages, emails, and other communication methods.

The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on SmartMom’s latest announcements, software updates and upcoming events. It also helps us to improve our services, content and advertising. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime by updating your preferences.

We also use personal information to help us develop, deliver and improve our products, services, content and advertising. We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis and research to improve SmartMom’s products, services and customer communications.

From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about changes to our terms, conditions and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with SmartMom, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.

If you enter into a sweepstakes, contest or similar promotion, we may use the information you provide to administer those programs.

Collection and Use of Non-Personal Information

We also collect non-personal information — data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
We may collect information such as occupation, language, postal code, area code, unique device identifier, location and the time zone where a SmartMom product is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services and advertising.

We may also collect information regarding customer activities on our website and from our other products and services. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

If we do combine non-personal information with personal information, the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.

Cookies and Other Technologies

SmartMom’s website, online services, interactive applications, email messages and advertisements may use “cookies” and other technologies such as pixel tags and web beacons. These technologies help us better understand user behavior, tell us which parts of our website people have visited, and facilitate and measure the effectiveness of advertisements and web searches. We treat information collected by cookies and other technologies as non-personal information. However, to the extent that Internet Protocol (IP) addresses or similar identifiers are considered personal information by local law, we also treat these identifiers as personal information. Similarly, to the extent that non-personal information is combined with personal information, we treat the combined information as personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.

SmartMom and our partners also use cookies and other technologies to remember personal information when you use our website, online services and applications. Our goal in these cases is to make your experience with SmartMom more convenient and personal. For example, knowing your first name lets us welcome you the next time you visit the SmartMom web site. Knowing your country and language helps us provide a customized and more useful experience.
If you want to disable cookies, check with your browser provider to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain features of the SmartMom website will not be available once cookies are disabled.

As is true of most websites, we gather some information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.

We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. SmartMom may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.

In some of our email messages, we use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the SmartMom website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.

Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.

Disclosure to Third Parties

At times, SmartMom may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with SmartMom to provide products and services, or that help SmartMom market to customers. Personal information will only be shared by SmartMom to provide or improve our products, services and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

Service Providers

SmartMom shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information.
Others

It may be necessary — by law, legal process, litigation and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence — for SmartMom to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.

We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a re-organization, merger or sale, we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
Protection of Personal Information

SmartMom takes precautions — including administrative, technical and physical measures — to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.

When you use the SmartMom social networking service, the personal information you share is visible to your friends and family, and can be read, collected or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a posting, that information is available to certain other SmartMom users. Please take care when using these features.

Integrity and Retention of Personal Information

SmartMom makes it easy for you to keep your personal information accurate, complete and up to date. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Access to Personal Information

For personal information, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access so you can request that we correct the data if it is inaccurate or delete the data if SmartMom is not required to retain it by law or for legitimate business purposes. We may decline to process requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. Access, correction or deletion requests can be made to the Privacy email address.

Children

We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete the information as soon as possible.

Location-Based Services

To provide location-based services on SmartMom products, SmartMom and our partners and licensees may collect, use and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your computer or device. This location data may be collected in a form that personally identifies you, and SmartMom may share that information with your friends and family as part of our social networking services.

Third-Party Sites and Services

SmartMom websites, products, applications and services may contain links to third-party websites, products and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties, which may include such things as location data or contact details, is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.

International Users

Information you provide may be transferred or accessed by entities around the world as described in this Privacy Policy.
