WebMom’s Blog (“WebMom“) operates webmom.ca and may operate other websites. It is WebMom’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information that may be collected while operating these websites.
Like most website operators, WebMom 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. WebMom’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how WebMom’s visitors use its website. From time to time, WebMom may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
WebMom also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on webmom.ca blogs/sites. WebMom only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to WebMom’s websites choose to interact with WebMom in ways that require WebMom to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that WebMom gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at webmom.ca to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with WebMom are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, WebMom collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with WebMom. WebMom 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.
WebMom may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. WebMom may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, WebMom does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
WebMom 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 WebMom’s behalf or to provide services available at WebMom’s websites, 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 WebMom’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. WebMom 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, WebMom discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when WebMom believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of WebMom, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of WebMom’s website and have supplied your email address, WebMom 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 WebMom and associated products. If you send me a request (for example via email or via one of the online feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help me clarify or respond to your request or to help me support other users. WebMom takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If WebMom, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that WebMom goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of WebMom may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
