What is Non-Personally Identifiable Data?

With respect to individuals who visit MommyPolls.com, we, and/or one or more of our third party advertising technology vendors, may collect what is known as "Click Stream Data." Click Stream Data is anonymous, and includes information such as a visitor's IP address, web pages which have been viewed by a visitor, date and time, domain type, and responses by a visitor to an advertisement and content delivered by us or a third party advertising technology vendor. We, and/or a third party advertising technology vendor, may use different types of technologies to collect this type of information, including cookies and web beacons (1×1 pixels). As a part of the registration process at MommyPolls.com properties, we may request and collect additional non-personally identifiable information about the visitor. Examples of the non-personally identifiable data that may be requested include age, gender, and geographic location. None of the aforementioned information (collectively referred to as "non-personally identifiable data"), by itself, or together, can by its nature be tracked to a specific individual.

What is Personally Identifiable Information?

The term "personally identifiable information" as used in this Policy means any information or set of information that identifies a specific individual. MommyPolls.com is committed to making sure that clear notice and choice is provided to all consumers before the personally identifiable data is collected, and that they have opted-in to our use of their data. Examples of personally identifiable data that may be requested include name, address and email address.

How is Information Used?

When you volunteer information on MommyPolls.com sites, personal information including name, email, and gender is used to create your account profile. Once registered, you have the option to create a profile with more detailed information.

When you select to email, or tell a friend about MommyPolls.com sites, we request their email address to send them a one- time email inviting them to MommyPolls.com sites. This information is not used for any purposes beyond that for which it has been provided.

In addition, declared visitor information may also be appended with additional information from external sources — this is done to enrich your personalized experience while visiting our sites (for example, providing better newsletter content, advertising or special offers that may interest you). MommyPolls.com may also compare its own visitor list to lists received from third party companies, in an effort to provide better service.

We may use information collected in numerous ways, including but not limited to:

  • Providing personalized information via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
  • Targeted advertising via electronic delivery and/or direct mail;
  • Contacting visitors for feedback and surveys via electronic delivery and/or postal mail;
  • Providing general and administrative information about membership via electronic delivery and/or postal mail;
  • Feedback on product development;
  • Feedback on editorial, marketing and promotional purposes;
  • Improving the content and layout of MommyPolls.com sites;
  • Statistical analysis of visitor behavior;
  • Targeting advertising messages to visitors using MommyPolls.com third party technology partners once visitors leave the MommyPolls.com network of sites;
  • Contacting visitors regarding account status and changes to the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Statement, Terms of Use and other policies and agreements;
  • Providing contact information to MommyPolls.com marketing partners you have explicitly authorized us to share your information with, and whose offers you have elected to receive via electronic delivery, telemarketing and direct mail; and
  • Disclosing personal information to MommyPolls.com service providers who provide support for MommyPolls.com ongoing operations (e.g., to provide email newsletters). Please note that these providers will be instructed to contact you only if you request them to do so.

While MommyPolls.com may undertake efforts to see that any third party with whom MommyPolls.com shares personal information is under contractual obligation to use the personal information solely for the purposes for which the information was disclosed, such third parties are independent third parties over which MommyPolls.com exercises no control. MommyPolls.com is not responsible for, and will not be liable for, their conduct, actions, omissions, or information handling or dissemination practices.
