2. PARTICIPATING MERCHANT POLICIES
Related services and offerings with links from this website and/or the Services, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in the Services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since Babies 411 does not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, Babies 411 is not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. Babies 411 recommends and encourages that users always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before they provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.
3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
Babies 411 collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies.
a. Web Server Logs.
When users visit the Website and/or Services, Babies 411 may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information Babies 411 may track include:
* Your Internet protocol address.
* The kind of browser or computer you use.
* Number of links you click within the site and/or Services.
* State or country from which you accessed the site and/or Services.
* Date and time of your visit.
* Name of your Internet service provider.
* Web page you linked to the site and/or Services from.
* Pages you viewed on the site and/or Services.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.
Babies 411 reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into www.Babies411.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.
c. Personal Information Users
Visitors to our website and/or Services can register to purchase products and services. When you register, Babies 411 may request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a product or service, Babies 411 or a third party payment processor may request financial information. Any financial information Babies 411 collects is used only to bill you for the products services you purchased. When a third party payment processor is used, users are encouraged to review applicable privacy policies of those providers. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, Babies 411 may ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to Babies 411 so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.
Babies 411 will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties except:
* To fulfill your product and service requests and/or orders;
* To protect ourselves from liability;
* To respond to legal or administrative process or to comply with law;
* In connection with a transfer, merger, acquisition, or liquidation of Babies 411;
* To perform functions necessary to operate the Services and/or make improvements to the Services;
* For promotional and affiliate offers.
* With your written consent.
4. USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES
Some web pages available through the Services may contain electronic images known as Web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow Babies 411 to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Babies 411 may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.
Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. Babies 411 prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.
5. ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION
We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information by contacting us by sending an email to our support attendant:
