Privacy policy

Policy Updated: May 25, 2018 (to comply with Global Data Protection Regulation – GDPR)

MomClone, LLC is a company that provides services to help you organize groups and yourself all with a single login. Our services—including all Tools in the MomClone Toolkit—and others that link to this Privacy Policy—allow you to invite and respond to group events and personal activities, as well as communicate schedules and updates.

When you use these services, you’ll share information with us. In this Privacy Policy, we want to let you know information about what we collect, how we use it, with whom we share it, and the choices you have to control, access, and update your information.

If you have any questions about our Privacy Policy, just contact us.

Information We Collect

There are three basic categories of information we collect:

  • Information you choose to give us.
  • Information we get when you use our services.
  • Information we get from third parties.

Here’s a little more detail on each of these categories.

Information You Choose to Give Us

When you interact with our services, we collect the information that you choose to share with us. For example, most of our services require you to set up a MomClone account, so we need to collect a few important details about you, such as: your full name, a password, an email address, and possibly your phone number. In some cases, we also collect birth dates to ensure that users under 13 years of age are not being sent information from us. In addition, if you elect to subscribe to our service with a paid subscription, you’ll need to provide a credit card number, the name on the credit card, the credit card billing address, the phone number associated with the credit card, the card verification code (CVC), and the credit card’s expiration date. You may also elect to upload a logo and a profile photo. Some of this information may be publicly visible on our services, such as profile pictures, a name, or other useful identifying information depending on how you configure our services. This information is stored in the United States.

You’ll also provide us whatever information you send through the services, such as messages, updates, and other content that you send to your invitees. Please keep in mind that the users you send content to can always save that content or copy it outside of our services. Thus, the same common sense that applies to the internet at large applies to MomClone as well: Don’t send messages or share content that you wouldn’t want someone to save or share.

We also may request non-personal information about your interests and activities, your gender, your location (such as ZIP code and/or country), and other demographic or profile information and we may ask you to complete a survey or send us a review. We collect this information to better inform our Tool development, new features, and also what marketing materials we send to you.

If you link our services with any third party social networking service then we may collect certain information related to or associated with your account with that social networking service. For example, our services allow you to create and/or associate an account on our services using your Facebook account credentials. You may have the ability to control what information is shared from these third party social network services by adjusting the privacy settings on those services. Our services also allow you to create and/or associate an account on our services using your Google account credentials. You may have the ability to control what information is shared via that service as well.

Additionally, when you contact customer support or communicate with MomClone in any other way, we’ll collect whatever information you volunteer to share with us.

Information We Get When You Use Our Services

When you use our services, we collect information about which of those services you’ve used and how you’ve used them. We might know, for example, that you’ve created three events on our Gatherings Tool, watched a video for a certain period of time, and sent updates to invitees. Here’s a fuller explanation of the types of information we collect when you use our services:

  • Usage Information. We collect information about your activity through our services. For example, we may collect information about:
    • How you interact with the services, such as which Designs you typically use, which Tools you use the most, or which search queries you submit.
    • How you communicate with other MomCloners, such as their names, the time and date of your communications, and the number of communications you exchange with them.
  • Content Information. We collect content you create on our services, such as logos, and information about the content you create or provide, such as the metadata that is provided with the content.
  • Device Information. We collect information from and about the devices you use. For example, we collect:
    • Information about your hardware and software, such as (but not limited to) your IP address, the hardware model, operating system version, device memory, advertising identifiers, unique application identifiers, apps installed, unique device identifiers, browser type, language, battery level, and time zone.
    • Information about your wireless and mobile network connections, such as mobile phone number, service provider, and signal strength.
  • Location Information. When you use our services we may collect information about your geographic and geolocation.
  • Information Collected by Cookies and Other Technologies. Like most online services and mobile applications, we may use cookies and other technologies, such as web beacons, web storage, and unique advertising identifiers, to collect information about your activity, browser, and device. Most web browsers are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually remove or reject browser cookies through the settings on your browser or device. Keep in mind, though, that removing or rejecting cookies could affect the availability and functionality of our services. We and third-party vendors, including Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) and we may use third-party cookies (such as a DoubleClick cookie) together to report how your ad impressions, other uses of ad services, and interactions with these ad impressions and ad services are related to visits to our services. To learn more about how to opt out of Google’s use of the Google Analytics cookie, visit the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on at //tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.  To learn more about how to opt out of DoubleClick’s use of cookies, visit the DoubleClick opt-out page at //support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=e.
  • Log Information. We also collect log information when you use our website. That information includes, among other things:
    • Details about how you’ve used our services.
    • Device information, such as your web browser type and language.
    • Access times.
    • Pages viewed.
    • IP address.
    • Identifiers associated with cookies or other technologies that may uniquely identify your device or browser.
    • Pages you visited before or after navigating to our website. 

Information We Collect from Third Parties

We may collect information that other users provide about you when they use our services. For example, if another user allows us to collect information from their contacts—and you’re one of that user’s contacts—we may combine the information we collect from that user’s contacts with other information we have collected about you.

We may allow our authorized service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements on our services and/or use tracking technologies to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements or use our services. Our services do not provide or grant access to any personally identifying information to these third party advertisers. The tracking technologies allow the third parties to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. Some of these third-party advertising companies may be interest-based advertising companies that may use cookies to collect non-personally identifiable information during your visit to the services in order to help show advertisements on other websites that are likely to be more interesting to you. To learn more about interest-based advertising or to opt-out of this use of your anonymous information, you can visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out link at //www.networkadvertising.org/choices.

We may use third-party advertising companies to target advertisements to you on our services, across the web, on your mobile device and on any of your other devices, based on the information we have collected from and about you, as well as information relating to your and other users’ visits to this and other websites and online services.  To do so, these companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of pixel tags) or recognize an identifier associated with your mobile device.  These companies may also use these technologies; along with personal information they or we collect on the different devices you use, to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile device, a laptop, or other computer.  There are many sources through which you can acquire additional information about your choices with respect to these practices.

We may also share with third parties—such as advertisers—aggregated, non-personally identifiable, or de-identified information.

Third-Party Content and Integrations

The services may also contain third-party links and search results, include third-party integrations, or offer a co-branded or third-party-branded service. Through these links, third-party integrations, and co-branded or third-party-branded services, you may be providing information (including personal information) directly to the third party, us, or both. You acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for how those third parties collect or use your information. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of every third-party service that you visit or use, including those third parties you interact with through our services.

Control over Your Information

We want you to be in control of your information, so we provide you with the following tools.

  • Access and Updates. We strive to let you access and update most of the personal information that we have about you. There are limits though to the requests we’ll accommodate. We may reject a request for a number of reasons, including, for example, that the request risks the privacy of other users, requires technical efforts that are disproportionate to the request, is repetitive, or is unlawful. You can access and update most of your basic account information on the Site by visiting the Site’s Account Settings page. You can always Contact Us  if you have questions about your account. Because your privacy is important to us, we may ask you to verify your identity or provide additional information before we let you access or update your personal information. We will try to update and access your information for free, but if it would require a disproportionate effort on our part, we may charge a fee. We will of course disclose the fee before we comply with your request.
  • Revoking Permissions. If you change your mind about our ongoing ability to collect information from certain sources that you have already consented to, such as your contacts or location services, you can simply revoke your consent by changing the settings on your device if your device offers those options. Of course, if you do that, certain services may lose full functionality.
  • Account Deletion. While we hope you’ll remain a lifelong MomCloner, if for some reason you ever want to delete your account, just contact us with a formal request (that references the email address associated with your account) to delete your account. Please note that once an account is deleted, any files within that account will be lost, and we will not be able to restore them. Visit our Contact page. If you ask to delete your account, you will have up to 30 days to restore your account before we delete your information from our servers. During this period, your account will not be visible to other MomCloners.
  • Public vs. Private Events. While we offer the options for who can sign up for an event in our Event Settings page, we cannot make an event strictly private. If an uninvited person somehow acquires the event page link, he or she may view the event page, but will not be able to sign up for the event.

Security

The security of all personally identifiable information associated with users of this Site is of great concern to Us. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Once we receive your transmission, we use reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our systems. When credit card information is transmitted, we use SSL (secure socket layer) encryption technology. Any account information you enter on this site is password-protected so that only you can access it. You should not divulge your password or user identification number to anyone. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we can’t ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

Users Outside the United States

Although we are a United States based company, please be aware that no matter where you live or where you happen to use our services, your information may be shared with MomClone, LLC. This means that we may collect your personal information from, transfer it to, and store and process it in the United States and other countries outside of where you live. This Policy and the storage, use, and disclosure of your information under this Policy, is governed by the laws on the United States. The services are controlled and operated by MomClone, LLC from the United States and you expressly waive the application of any laws of any territory other than the United States. The data protection and other laws of the United States and other countries might not be as comprehensive as those in your country. By using our services, you understand and agree that your information may be transferred to our facilities and those third parties with whom we share it as described in this Policy, and the laws of the United States apply to the use, storage, and disclosure of your information.

Children

Our services are not intended for—and we don’t direct them to—anyone under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age 13.

Revisions to the Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. But when we do, we’ll let you know. Sometimes, we’ll let you know by revising the date at the top of the Privacy Policy that’s available on our website. Other times, we may provide you with additional notice (such as adding a statement to our websites’ homepages or providing you with an another form of notification).
