Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy

Mama’s Spot recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of all information members provided to us and to our clients through the use of our services and related websites. We created the following policy guidelines with a fundamental respect for your right to privacy to guide our relationship with our users.

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create your Mama’s Spot account, you will be required to provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services do not require registration.

Additional Information: You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, or a picture. You may customize your account with information such as a cell phone number for the delivery of SMS. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may unsubscribe from these messages by following the instructions contained within the messages or the instructions on our web site. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. Mama’s Spot may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.

The Way We Use Information
We use the information that we collect to operate, maintain, and provide to Consumers all of the services found on the Site and for other non-marketing or administrative purposes (such as notifying you of major service updates or for customer service purposes).

We use all of the information that we collect from our Consumers to understand the usage trends and preferences; to improve the way the Sites work and look; to improve our marketing and promotional efforts and to create new features and functionality.

We may disclose Consumer information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with local, state or federal laws or to respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant.

We also reserve the right to disclose Consumer information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; protect Clients from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Site; and to protect against fraudulent uses, the rights, property, or safety of the company, our Consumers, our Clients, or others.

If you no longer wish to receive our weekly email alerts and promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each email or communication or by contacting us.

In some cases if you decline to share personal information on the Site, we will not be able to provide certain services to you on the Site. You may update, correct, or delete your personal information and preferences at any time by going to the Edit Profile section of the website or by contacting us.  We will respond to your request to access your personal information and preferences within 30 days.

You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access Mama’s Spot and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. Mama’s Spot cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements. To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to personal information or before making corrections. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAINTAINING THE SECRECY OF YOUR UNIQUE PASSWORD AND ACCOUNT INFORMATION AT ALL TIMES.

Third-Party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites
Third-party ad servers or ad networks may serve advertisements within the Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Site. These ad servers automatically receive your IP address when this happens, and they may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or web beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize their advertising content.

If an advertiser asks us to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-24) or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.

We may provide links in the Site to other sites where personal information is collected by third parties. This information is not shared with us unless notice of such sharing is expressly provided to you and you give permission to share it.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or websites.

Our Commitment to Data Security
We use commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. WE CANNOT, HOWEVER, ENSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT TO US, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. Once we receive your transmission of information, we make commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important.  If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the Sites at any time or in any manner. If we learn that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Sites without verified parental consent, then we will take the appropriate steps to delete this information.

Special Note to International Users
The Site is hosted in the United States. If you are a Consumer accessing the Sites from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from U.S. laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the Site, which are governed by U.S. law and this Privacy Policy, you are transferring your personal information to the U.S. and you consent to that transfer.

In the Event of Merger or Sale
In the event that we are acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, the homepage, and/or other places we deem appropriate so that you are aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SITE CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND ANY FUTURE REVISIONS.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food and ways of life.

We love watching them learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world for the first time and made memories that will last a lifetime.
