Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Baby Meals we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • We aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy which incorporates these goals:

It is Baby Meals (“Baby Meals”) policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website(s) and forum.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Baby Meals collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Baby Meals’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Baby Meals’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Baby Meals may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Baby Meals also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Baby Meals does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Baby Meals’ website(s) choose to interact with Baby Meals in ways that require Baby Meals to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Baby Meals gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at babymeals.net to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Baby Meals – by purchasing advertising, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Baby Meals collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Baby Meals. Baby Meals does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

Baby Meals may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Baby Meals may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Baby Meals does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Baby Meals discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Baby Meals’s behalf or to provide services available at Baby Meals’s website(s), and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Baby Meals’s website(s), you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Baby Meals will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Baby Meals discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Baby Meals believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Baby Meals, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Baby Meals website and have supplied your email address, Baby Meals may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Baby Meals and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Baby Meals takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Baby Meals uses cookies to help Baby Meals identify and track visitors, their usage of Baby Meals website, and their website access preferences. Baby Meals visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Baby Meals’ websites, with the drawback that certain features of Baby Meals’ websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Baby Meals and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Comments

Comments and other content submitted to our Akismet anti-spam service are not saved on our servers unless they were marked as false positives, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Baby Meals may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Baby Meals’ sole discretion. Baby Meals encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a babymeals.net account, you should also check your profile for alerts to these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
