Information Baebies May Collect or Receive

We may collect, use, share, store, or otherwise process your personal information when we have an appropriate basis and doing so is consistent with your rights and appropriate to the context.

  1. Information You Provide
    Baebies collects personally identifiable information (i.e. information from which you can be identified, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) when you voluntarily submit it to us through the Website or sign-up to receive newsletters or other information from Baebies.
  2. Information Collected Automatically
    We collect some information automatically when you visit the Website and typically aggregate such data and use it in a statistical form rather than using it to identify individual users.  Examples include cookies, web beacons, or logs that may collect the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our Website. We use this information, which remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our Website so that we may improve it and the services we offer. If a combination of information we collect does identify you as an individual, we will treat the combined information as personally identifiable information. The following are examples of how we use information automatically collected through our Website:

    • Use of Cookies: When you view our Website, we may store some information on your computer. This information will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file that collects information to help us improve our services and your experience when you visit our Website. With most Internet browsers, you can erase cookies, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. In some cases, blocking or disabling cookies may prevent you from using certain features of our Website. We do not permit third parties to use cookies to collect your information through our Website concerning your activities over time and across different websites.
    • Use of IP Addresses: An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your Internet service provider or through your organization’s local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online. The IP address can be used to tell us your general location.
    • Use of Google Analytics: Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to help the Website analyze how users use the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States in aggregate form. Google will use this aggregated information, on behalf of Baebies, for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity and providing Baebies with other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage. To learn more about Google Analytics and how you can opt out, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Using and Sharing Information

Baebies will not sell or rent personally identifiable information to any third party unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so. For our legitimate interests, consistent with your rights and preferences, we may also use or share your information to:

  • Respond to your questions/requests, communicate with you, provide you with newsletters or other updates and information related to our products and services we think may be of interest to you.
  • Engage with select third-party business partners who provide Baebies with support services in connection with our Website.

All business partners are contractually required to meet the same standards of data protection as Baebies and are prohibited from using the information for other purposes or for their own marketing activities.
  • Manage and customize promotional offers and advertisements we think may be of interest to you and to conduct data analysis and related activities.
  • Protect safety when we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, or otherwise injuring or interfering with Baebies’ rights, property or operations, other users of this Website, or anyone else who could be harmed by such activities.
  • Comply with legal obligations, such as when required by law, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation.
  • Maintain the security of our Website and services, resolve or troubleshoot technical issues.
