1. Welcome

Welcome to Baby Skills, a web site and mobile application owned by the Baby Skills Team. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site.

2. Your Consent

By using this site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Baby Skills Terms of Use. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

3. About Children

This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this site from visitors in this age group. We do, however, collect information about children and babies from their parents. We ask that our users not provide information about a baby or child without first getting the parents' consent. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites.

4. Information You Provide

This site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and allowing you to input notes, journal entries and pictures. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, e-mail address, uploaded photographs, and so on).

5. Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through this site, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, and navigational data collection (log files and server logs). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the Web site you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using. This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies. You may set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent or to refuse cookies altogether, but certain features of this site might not work without cookies.

This site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to site visitors, customise the site based on your preferences, compile and analyse statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site for your use. We may at times combine personally identifiable information with passively collected information in order to personalise offers and the site for our users (for example, combined information may allow us to recommend products or features to you based on what you have liked in the past).

6. Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this site to improve the content of our site, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We also may disclose personally identifiable information you provide via this site to third parties, but only:

The collection, use, and disclosure of information contemplated in this Privacy Policy may involve a transfer of the information to the United States and possibly other jurisdictions that may not have equivalent laws and rules regarding personally identifiable information as your country of residency.

7. Public Areas

Our site may also have public areas in which you can share your posts with other users, or share your posts on external sites (such as Facebook or Twitter). Please remember that any information you share in these areas becomes public, so you should be careful about what you disclose. If you post comments about Baby Skills services on our site, there's a chance we'll publish them for editorial purposes or in promotional advertising and/or marketing materials.

8. Access, Correction, and Deletion

To keep personally identifiable information that you provide via this site accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below and we will take appropriate steps to update or correct such information in our possession, or to delete your information from our contact list. If we no longer need personally identifiable information for any of the purposes referred to in this policy, we will take reasonable steps to either destroy or de-identify your information.

9. Security

This site takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure.

10. Links to Other Web Sites

This site may contain links or references to other Web sites to which this Privacy Policy does not apply. We encourage you to read the Privacy Policy of every Web site you visit.

11. How to Contact Us

If you have any questions, comments, requests, or concerns related to this Privacy Policy or the information practices of this site, you may contact a representative of Baby Skills by e-mail at [email protected]

12. Code Versions

The App and Website may change from time to time, which will result in features being added and possibly removed. In some cases this may result in deleting some of your data. For a short time, older versions can be accessed via this link.

13. Changes to This Privacy Policy

If this Privacy Policy changes, the revised policy will be posted on this site. Please check back periodically, and especially before you provide any personally identifiable information.
