    We will never sell, barter, or rent your email address to any unauthorized third party.

    How we collect data

    MUM TURNED MOM will collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the website, as well as information that you submit to us.

    Cookies and Web Beacons

    This site uses cookies, small text files that are placed on your machine, if you agree, to help the site provide a better user experience. The cookies we use are ‘analytical’ cookies. They allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website, which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also helps us to improve our site.

    This site may also use web beacons (single-pixel graphic files also known as “transparent GIFs”) to access cookies and to count users who visit the Site or open HTML-formatted email messages.

    Please consult our cookie policy for all detailed information surrounding the cookies used on our website (and to learn how to opt out of cookies).

    In general, cookies are used to retain user preferences, store information for things like shopping carts, and provide anonymised tracking data to third party applications like Google Analytics.

    Google Analytics

    Google Analytics is a site which allows us to see how well this website is performing in terms of audience. It gives us information on how many people have visited this site, how many of those people are coming back, and where they are in the world. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

    Like many other websites, MUM TURNED MOM makes use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, country of residence, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

    The MUM TURNED MOM site does NOT store the information collected by these programs in a separate database and it does NOT sell or give away this information.

    The information collected by these programs is NOT separately aggregated in any database with any personal information, such as your name, e-mail address, IP address, or specific location.

    We may be required to report summarized data to programs we are working with. The data disclosed is often our total page view counts, number of unique visitors, number of sessions, and/or bounce rates. This is usually a screen shot of our Google Analytics dashboard and only contains summarized totals from our website and has no indentifiers on it (other than our website’s name).

    If you wish to have your data excluded from Google Analytics, there is a way to opt-out if you install this Google Analytics browser extension.

    Comments

    MUM TURNED MOM allows comments to be added beneath all blog posts on this site.

    When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

    An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it, if you have chosen to leave an email address. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

    The information collected here, which may include names, email addresses and/or website URL’s, will not be added to our mailing list, nor will it ever be passed on or shared with third parties.

    Please note that the comment you submit within the comment box in a post on MUM TURNED MOM is NOT private or confidential. While the email (if you choose to share it) is NEVER shared or disclosed, the name you choose to submit, the URL you share, and the comment you make is public and is not protected.

    When you submit a comment, the following information is stored in our database:

  • The name you provide (whether real or a pseudonym)
  • The email address you provide (if you choose to leave one)
  • Your IP address
  • The comment related to these details
  • If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

    If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

    MUM TURNED MOM reserves the right to edit or delete any comments submitted to this blog without notice due to, but not limited to:

  • Comments deemed to be spam or questionable spam;
  • Comments including profanity;
  • Comments containing language or concepts that could be deemed offensive;

    Some of our advertisers occasionally serve you cookies as well. We do not have control over cookies placed by advertisers. We may use advertising service vendors to help present advertisements on the website. These vendors may use cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies to provide you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on this and other sites you have visited, to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements.

    The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by these advertising service vendors is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours; therefore, you and we hereby agree that we will have no liability in connection with the actions or inaction of advertisers or vendors.

    Your rights

    You may have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These may include the right to:

  • Request to correct your personal data;
  • Request erasure of your personal data;
  • Request transfer of your personal data;

    You may choose to stop the collection or use of your personal information by opting out at any time.

    If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please email us at info@mumturnedmom.com

    If at any time you believe that any information we are holding on you is incorrect or incomplete, please contact us by email at the email address above. If at any time you no longer want to receive emails similar to those you are receiving from us, you may unsubscribe using the “unsubscribe” link or button at the bottom of our email messages or, if you prefer, you may unsubscribe by contacting us by email at the email address above.

    NOTE: We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). Since we hold little data, requests tied to an email NEED TO BE SENT via that email. We have no other means to verify your identity. This is a security measure we put in place to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

    We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

    You do not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). BUT, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly repetitive, unfounded, or excessive. We may also refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

    We respond to all legitimate requests within 30 days. If you have several requests, it may take us longer than 30 days to fulfill your request. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.

    Disclaimer

    Although it is highly unlikely, this policy may be changed at any time at our discretion. If we should update this policy, we will post the updates to this page on our Website.

    You consent to communicating with us through e-mail, including without limitation the exchanging of documents as attachments to email communications. You understand that such communications may include information that we or you consider private, and that not all computer networks are necessarily secure. You agree to hold us harmless for any non-intentional loss of or access to electronically exchanged and stored information.

    We reserve the right to make changes to this policy at any time.
