Anchored Motherhood understands that your privacy is important. We respect and value every person who visits our Site, and as such only collect and use information you freely share in ways that are useful to you and in a manner consistent with your rights and our obligations under the law.
How We Collect Information
All information is stored securely in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (GDPR).
We may collect and store personal or other information that you voluntarily supply to us online while using our Site (e.g., while on the Site or in responding via email to a feature provided on the Site). Our Site only contacts individuals who specifically request that we do so or in the event that they have signed up to receive our communications or purchased one of our products. Our Site collects personally identifying information from our users during online registration and online purchasing. This information includes name and e-mail address for registration or opt-in purposes and name, postal address, and credit card information when purchasing our products. All of this information is provided to us by you.
We also collect and store information that is generated automatically as you navigate online through the Site. For example, we may collect information about your computer’s connection to the Internet, which allows us, among other things, to improve the delivery of our web pages to you and to measure traffic on our Site. We also may use a standard feature found in browser software called a “cookie” to enhance your experience with our Site. Cookies are small files that your web browser places on your hard drive for record-keeping purposes. By showing how and when visitors use the Site, cookies help us identify how many unique users visit us, and track user trends and patterns. They also prevent you from having to re-enter your preferences on certain areas of the Site where you may have entered preference information before. The Site also may 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.
How Your Data Is Used
We use the information we collect from you while you are using the Site in a variety of ways, including providing and managing access to our Site; personalizing and tailoring your experience on our Site; supplying our products and services to you; responding to communications from you; supplying you with communications (such as newsletters, alerts, promotions, etc.) that you have requested via subscription; market research; improving our site and your user experience; advertising that appears on the Site; and, making other offers available to you via email, direct mail, or otherwise.
With your permission and/or where permitted by law, we may also use your data for marketing purposes, including contacting you with information, news, and offers on our products and services. However, we will not send you unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights while complying with our obligations under the GDPR and the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, as amended in 2004, 2011, and 2015.
Do We Share Your Information?
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily make your personal information available for viewing by third parties online – for example on message boards, web logs, through email, or in chat areas – that information can be seen, collected and used by others besides us. We cannot be responsible for any unauthorized third-party use of such information.
Be aware that we may occasionally release information about our visitors when release is appropriate to comply with law or to protect the rights, property, or safety of users of the Site and/or the public. We do not need any further consent from you in order to share your data in such circumstances, and will comply as required with any legally binding request made of us.
