Nursery Chatter is committed to taking reasonable steps towards protecting your privacy online and managing your information responsibly. This Privacy Notice is intended to notify you of our online privacy practices, the type of information that may be collected and stored, how the information is used, with whom the information may be shared, what choices are available to you regarding the collection, use and distribution of the information, what kind of security procedures are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control, and who to contact with questions or concerns.
This Privacy Notice applies to the website located at www.nurserychatter.com (the “Website”). This Privacy Notice does not apply to other websites to which we or any guest blogger or commentator may link. We may post links on this Website as a way of helping you locate related information and products easily. However, when linking to another website, you must review that website’s privacy notice as other websites may not treat information collected online in the same manner as we do.
By using this Website and/or by contacting us and providing any personal information, you consent to the collection and use of information by us in accordance with this Privacy Notice. If we decide to change our Privacy Notice, we will post those changes on this page.
Why We Collect Information
We collect personal information in order to improve our Website and help us communicate with you, including providing information and events that are relevant to our community. We also collect your personal information to help us design and deliver our Website, and to deliver targeted marketing to you.
What Information We Collect
The following generally describes the type of information we may collect about you.
We do not automatically collect personal information unless you voluntarily input or submit this information, such as during registration for a user account, when you submit questions or comments, request information, or participate in online surveys, contests, promotions or other activities. Should you voluntarily provide us with personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
Even if you do not submit personal information through the Website, we gather navigational information about where visitors go on the Website and information about the technical efficiencies of our Website and services (i.e., time to connect to the Website, time to download pages, etc.). This information allows us to see which areas of our Website are most visited and helps us better understand the user experience. This helps us improve the quality of the Website by recognizing and delivering more of the features, areas, and services our visitors prefer. In this process of gathering information, we may collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information (for example, domain type, browser type and version, service provider and IP address, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and click-stream data). We may also create and use electronic records to compile statistics about how our visitors collectively interact with our Website.
How We Collect Information
We collect information in three primary ways:
- You Give Us Information: We collect information from
you when you submit it to us through our Website.
- We Collect Information Automatically: We automatically collect certain types of information when you visit our Website or use our products and services. For example, we automatically collect various types of technical information when you use our Website as otherwise described in this Privacy Notice.
- We Collect Information from Other Sources: We may obtain information about you from outside sources, such as third-parties who provide services for us through web-beacons and other technologies as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.
A web “server log” is a record of activity created by a computer that delivers certain web pages to your browser. Certain activities that you perform on our Website may record information in server logs, such as if you enter a search term into a search box located on the site. The server log may record the search term, or the link you clicked on to bring you to our Website. The server log may also record information about your browser, such as you IP address and the cookies set on your browser.
Search Queries on Our Website
We may provide you with options to search for information on our site. If you enter information in a search query box, we may store that information and we may aggregate that information with other information we may have about the browser and/or IP address from which the search query originated.
From time to time, we may request information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, email and shipping address), demographic information (such as postal code, age level) and provide better services and options to you. If your information gathered via a survey will be used in a manner different from that described in this Privacy Notice, such use will be detailed in the survey instructions. For example, the instructions will alert you if the information will be shared with anyone in addition to those identified in this Privacy Notice, such as a third party sponsoring the survey.
How We Use the Information We Collect
We use the information we collect internally in our business for many business purposes, such as to: (i) analyze trends and conduct research; (ii) provide support and respond to questions from Website visitors; (iii) improve our Website; (iv) learn about users’ needs;; (v) track traffic patterns and site usage; (vi) correlate information with other commercially available information to identify demographics and preferences to assist us in our marketing efforts; (vii) provide specific relevant marketing, promotional, or other information to you; (viii) address information security and/or privacy practices control, network functioning, engineering, and troubleshooting issues; (ix) investigate claims and/or legal actions, violations of law or agreements, and compliance with relevant applicable laws and legal process; and (x) comply with law, or based on our good faith belief that it is necessary to conform or comply with the law, or otherwise to disclose information to cooperate with police and other governmental authorities, or to protect the rights, property or safety of visitors to the Website or the public.
We use the information we collect in a variety of ways. Generally, using all of the above mentioned, and similar type tools, we may collect, aggregate, and use information from or about you such as data about the type of browser and operating system used, which web pages you view, the time and duration or you visits to our site, the search queries you may use on this site, whether you clicked on any items or links on the site, whether you have clicked on any links in any emails sent from us, or third-parties on our behalf, whether you have chosen to opt-out of certain services or information sharing, and whether you have viewed or ordered certain products or services.
We may also share personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information externally with our affiliates and other third-party service providers who help us provide operational services for the Website, which might include, but is not necessarily limited to: business entities that provide e-mail address management and communication contact services, network equipment and application management providers and hosting entities, entities which obtain information such as demographic information which might be aggregated with information we have about you, judicial, administrative and/or legal or financial accounting providers in the event that information must be reviewed or released in response to civil and/or criminal investigations, claims, lawsuits, or if we are subject to judicial or administrative process (such as a subpoena) to release your information or to prosecute or defend legal actions, and other service providers which may be involved in the other types of services and activities otherwise discussed in this Privacy Notice.
