We here at Oogababy take privacy very seriously.
This policy exists to keep Oogababy safe for you.
Welcome to oogababy (“oogababy”, “we”, “our”, “us”). Oogababy is an online tool that lets parents capture precious baby moments, track growth and development, share with friends and family, and relive parenthood interactively.
What information do we collect?
We collect the following types of information:
Information you directly provide to us:
- Your username, password and email address when you create an oogababy account.
- Certain non-identifying information including your and your child’s/children’s gender, date of birth, due date, time of birth, city, postal code, state, country, language, timezone, etc ("Personal Information").
- The names, user ids and gender of your friends and registered partner to enable us to connect you with these people on the Services.
- If you choose to connect your Facebook account or any other social network or media accounts such as Twitter and Youtube to your oogababy account, we collect your user id and access token to such accounts.
- Information that you provide for your user profile, including your and your child’s/ children’s first and last name, picture, phone number. This information allows us to help you and others be “found” on oogababy.
- User Content (including, photos, videos, comments and other materials) that you post on the Services (or that other users post on the Services and which you or your children are “tagged” into), information you post in relation to your child's growth such as weight, height and head circumference (collectively "Measurements") (so that we can plot them on the oogababy Growth Chart), information you post in relation to your child’s development (collectively “Milestones”), etc.
- Communications between you and oogababy (for example, we may send you emails in relation to the Services such as account verification, changes/updates to features of the Services, technical and security notices).
Inviting your friends to Oogababy:
- If you choose, you can use our “Invite friends” feature to locate other people without oogababy accounts through third-party social media sites such as Facebook.
- We use third-party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends on our Services. These tools collect information sent by your device or our Services, including the web pages you visit, add-ons, and other information that assists us in improving our Services. We collect and use this analytics information with analytics information from other users so that it cannot reasonably be used to identify any particular individual user.
Log file information:
- Log file information is automatically transmitted to us each time you make a request to access (ie., visit) our Services using a browser or an app. It can also be provided when the content on the web page or app is downloaded to your browser or device.
- When you use our Services, our servers automatically record certain data in log files, including your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser or device type, referring/exit pages and URLs, number of clicks and how you interact with links on the Services, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. We may also collect similar information from emails sent to our users which then help us track which emails are opened and which links are clicked by recipients. The information allows for more accurate reporting and improvement of the Services.
- When you use a device like a tablet or mobile phone to access our Services, we may access, collect, monitor, store on your device, and/or remotely store one or more “device identifiers”. Device identifiers are small data files or similar data structures stored on or associated with your mobile device, which uniquely identify your device. A device identifier may be data stored in connection with the device hardware, data stored in connection with the device’s operating system or other software, or data sent to the device by oogababy.
- A device identifier may deliver information to us or to a third party partner about how you browse and use the Services and may help us or others provide reports or personalised content and advertisements.
- Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For example, Metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted.
- Users can add or may have Metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g., to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g., to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive. If you geotag your photo or tag your photo using other’s APIs then, your latitude and longitude will be stored with the photo and searchable (e.g., through a location or map feature) if your photo is made public by you in accordance with your privacy settings.
