Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. This Policy describes how Big City Moms collects and uses information when you visit our website.

 

INFORMATION COLLECTED

Personally Identifiable Information. The majority of the information provided by Big City Moms on the Big City Moms website is available without Big City Moms collecting any information that is identifiable to you as an individual, such as your name, email address, street address or telephone number (Personally Identifiable Information).  However, Big City Moms does collect Personally Identifiable Information that you may provide voluntarily, such as when you:

  • Submit an online request to join the Big City Moms email distribution
  • Complete a survey
  • Send us an e-mail message

You have a choice as to whether to provide Big City Moms with any Personally Identifiable Information, but portions of the Big City Moms website may not be available to you without your providing this information.  Due to the business nature of the Big City Moms website, it is not intended for children under the age of 13, and we do not knowingly request, receive or collect any information from children.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information. The second type of information collected on the Big City Moms website is Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as the type of Web browser you use, your domain name and links you may have used to locate the Big City Moms website, but which otherwise does not identify you individually.

 

HOW WE USE THE INFORMATION COLLECTED

We do not sell or rent any information which we receive from the Big City Moms website. Except as stated in this Privacy Policy, we will not share your Personally Identifiable Information with anyone outside of Big City Moms and those hired by Big City Moms to perform work on its behalf.

Big City Moms uses any Personally Identifiable Information you provide in a limited number of ways.  We may use your Personally Identifiable Information to (i) provide you with information about Big City Moms and market its products and services; (ii) enhance or update the Big City Moms website; (iii) personalize users experience on the website; (iv) respond to requests and inquiries; (v) operate, evaluate and improve the Big City Moms business; (iv) protect against fraud and other criminal activity, claims and other liabilities; (vii) comply with applicable legal requirements; or (viii) compile demographic statistics about users of the Big City Moms website. We may also, on occasion, combine information about you that we have with information we obtain from other parties to enhance our ability to provide you with information about Big City Moms and its services that we think may be of interest to you.

In addition, Big City Moms may hire other companies to perform services on our behalf such as facilitating certain aspects of the Big City Moms website or sending you emails. These companies may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. Big City Moms may also use third-party ad servers or ad networks to deliver ads to you on Big City Moms’ behalf. These third-party ad servers may be supplied with or have access to your Personally Identifiable Information for the sole purpose of providing these services to us or on our behalf. They also may also collect and use Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your visits to the Big City Moms website in order to send advertisements that may be of interest to you.

On an aggregate basis only, we may collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information about users of the Big City Moms website. Big City Moms will never disclose any Personally Identifiable Information as part of this aggregate information, but we may lend, sell, share or otherwise disclose Non-Personally Identifiable Information with others so we can perform research and provide the results to third parties, enhance and market the Big City Moms website, and conduct accounting and process record keeping functions. Additionally, we may use IP address information to count and track aggregate visits to the Big City Moms website, to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer the Big City Moms website. Big City Moms does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so while a particular user’s session can be tracked, the user remains completely anonymous. We also may use this information to assist us in the ongoing technical development of the Big City Moms website.

Also, in the unlikely event that Big City Moms, or substantially all of its assets, is acquired by another firm, personally identifiable information may then be transferred.

Big City Moms will make every effort to preserve user privacy but we may need to disclose  Personally Identifiable Information when required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that the action is necessary to comply with a pending judicial proceeding,  a court order or legal process served on Big City Moms or to protect our rights or the rights of others, to fight fraud, identity theft, to ensure the integrity and operation of our business and systems, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Big City Moms, its employees or others.

 

THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COOKIES OPT-OUT

Big City Moms is dedicated to providing privacy on the Internet.  In addition to developing our privacy policy, we have provided you the opportunity to opt out of future third-party advertising cookies.

Big City Moms allows third parties to place cookies on our site for advertising purposes. This Privacy Statement does not cover the collection methods or use of the information collected by these vendors. These vendors have their own privacy policies and may be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI). To remove yourself from some or all NAI member advertising programs, please visit the NAI Opt-Out Page and follow the relevant instructions.  Please note that if you delete, block, or otherwise restrict cookies, or if you use a different computer or Internet browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.

 

OTHER WEBSITES AND LINKS

We may include links to other websites that we think will be of interest to you or operated by our business partners, affiliates, advertisers and others. These third parties have separate data collection and privacy practices independent from ours, and Big City Moms cannot be responsible for their policies or activities. Please contact those third parties directly if you have questions about their privacy policies.

 

COOKIES, WEB BEACONS AND CLEAR GIFS

Big City Moms also uses a feature of your browser called a “cookie.” Your cookie automatically identifies your computer – but not you – to our servers when you visit the Big City Moms website and allows us to correlate your computer with certain usage patterns which are stored in our log files. We use cookies to gather general, aggregate statistics about the overall popularity and usage of the Big City Moms website. Big City Moms also uses more temporary cookies, often referred to as session cookies, to keep a user logged into the system and aid in the exchange of information between pages without loss of data. Such a cookie, however, is only stored for the current browsing session and is deleted once the browser is closed. Big City Moms can also only read cookies from the Big City Moms website. Search for Cookies under your Web browser’s Help menu for more information on cookie management features available to you. If your browser is set to reject all cookies, the Big City Moms website may not function properly.

Big City Moms may also collect information through the use of clear gifs (also called Web beacons and Web bugs) in selected email messages we send to you. These are tiny graphic files, not visible to the human eye, that are included in HTML-based emails and used to let us know which emails we send are opened. Clear gifs may also see or read cookies on your computer. When authorized by Big City Moms, third parties specializing in monitoring aggregate statistical use of our site with whom we contract, may use cookies, our web log files, web beacons, and other monitoring technologies to compile anonymous aggregate data.

 

ACCESSING AND UPDATING INFORMATION

Big City Moms does not currently have an online method for users to delete their Personally Identifiable Information contained in our database. However, you may change or update the Personally Identifiable Information we have collected, request that we delete it, or request that we change how we use it by sending an email to paula@bigcitymoms.com with your instructions.  If you are a California resident and wish to review or change the personal information of yours which Big City Moms possesses, please contact us as provided above.
