ADVERTISING and ANALYTICS
We use industry-standard encryption to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information provided online, and you assume this risk by using the our services.
Although you may choose to input information about your child, we do not knowingly collect any personal information directly from anyone under the age of 18. We do not sell products or services for purchase by children and any children's products or services we sell are for purchase by adults only. If we become aware that an individual is under the age of 18 and has submitted any information to us for any purpose without prior verifiable parental consent, we will delete his or her information from our files.

INFORMATION, NOTICES, AND RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ONLY
California law provides California residents (as defined in Section 17014 of title 18 of the California Code of Regulations) (“Consumer”) with specific rights regarding information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, or is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (some of which may also constitute Personally Identifiable Information). The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) refers to such information as “personal information.” This section describes the rights that California Consumers have and explains how to exercise those rights, subject in all cases to any limitations set forth in the CCPA.
- Information We Collect; How We Collect It; How We Use It
Categories of Information We Collect. We collect the categories of information specified above under Collection of Information.
Categories of Sources From Which Personal Information Has Been Collected. Identifiers that constitute Personally Identifiable Information are collected directly from you. For example, we may collect your name, email address, from forms you complete through the Services. Identifiers that do not constitute Personally Identifiable Information (e.g., IP addresses, online identifiers) are collected indirectly from you through website technology, including web servers, cookies and similar tracking technology that interacts with your browser/device when you use the Services. Personal information covered by the California Customer Records statute is collected directly from you. For example, we may collect your name, and payment card information from forms you complete on the Service. Commercial information is collected in connection with purchases you make from us (e.g., subscriptions). Internet or other similar network activity is collected indirectly from you through website technology, including web servers, cookies and similar tracking technology that interacts with your browser/device when you use the Services.
Categories of Third Parties With Whom We Share Personal Information. See the sections above entitled “Collection of Information,” “Usage of Information,” “Sharing of Information,” and “Advertising and Analytics” for more detail about the categories of third parties with whom we share personal information.
- Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold
As a California Consumer, you have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, or sale of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access and Deletion Rights), and subject to certain limitations that we describe below, we will disclose such information. You have the right to request any or all of the following:
The categories of personal information we collected about you.
The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information
The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
The categories of personal information about you that we have sold or disclosed for a business purpose.
- Deletion Request Rights
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access and Deletion Rights), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records within a reasonable timeframe, unless an exception applies. However, we may retain personal information that has been de-identified or aggregated. Furthermore, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) in order to perform certain actions set forth under CCPA, such as detecting security incidents and protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity.
- Exercising Access and Deletion Rights
To exercise the access and deletion rights described above, please delete your account within the Baby Notebook application's “Account” screen. Only you, or a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “authorized agent”), may make the requests set forth above. The request should include your contact information and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. In addition, you should provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal information or an authorized representative of that person. For more information about verification, see Response Timing and Format immediately below.
- Response Timing and Format
We will respond to consumer requests in a reasonably timely manner. If we require extra time to respond, we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In order to protect the security of your personal information, we will not honor a request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. The method used to verify your identity will depend on the type, sensitivity, and value of the information, including the risk of harm to you posed by any authorized access or deletion. Generally speaking, verification will be performed by matching the identifying information provided by you to the personal information that we already have. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request (and will not be made more than twice in a 12-month period). If we cannot comply with a request, or cannot fully comply with a request, the response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply.
- Personal Information Sales and Opt-Out
We do not sell your Personally Identifiable Information. However, under the CCPA, “sale” is broadly defined such that it may include allowing third party advertising partners to receive certain limited categories of “personal information” (as such term is defined under the CCPA) such as cookies, IP address, device identifiers, internet or other similar network activity, to deliver targeted advertising on the Service or other services. When we permit such third parties to use such personal information for their own business and commercial purposes, this sharing may be considered a “sale” of personal information under the CCPA.
You have the right to direct us to not sell your personal information at any time (the “right to opt-out”). To exercise the right to opt-out, you may do so through the Digital Advertising Alliance's (DAA) CCPA Opt Out Tools. You can opt out via both website and mobile app as described in the DAA CCPA Opt Out Tools. The opt-out operates by placing a cookie on your device that is unique to the browser and device you use to opt-out. If you change browsers or computers, or delete the cookies on your computer, you will need to opt-out again. You also can set your browser to notify you when a cookie is being set and block most cookies. Please note that the CCPA opt outs provided through the DAA apply to the sale of personal information by participating companies. You may still receive advertisements that do not involve the sale of personal information subject to the CCPA.
We do not sell the personal information of consumers we actually know are less than 16 years of age, unless we receive affirmative authorization.
