Third Party use of your personal information

We do not sell or trade your personally identifiable information to third parties. This does not include third-party service providers who may be used to service some aspects of the website to assist us in operating the website, conducting our business, or servicing our users. The use of your personal information by third-party providers is dictated by their own privacy policies. The following third-party service providers are currently used by this website:

Mail Chimp

This service is used for our mailing list, and this provider stores your name, location and email address in order to deliver newsletters and email updates. Email messages may contain tracking links in order to track subscriber activity and may record a range of subscriber data relating to engagement, geographic location, demographics and already stored subscriber data. Users are able to unsubscribe from email communications by using the link at the bottom of these emails. View MailChimp’s privacy policy here.

Google Analytics

This service may store your IP address in order to track website usage, referring websites and user actions on the website, but does not store any other personal information. The data collected by Google Analytics is non-personally identifiable. View the Google Analytics privacy policy here.

This list may be amended without notice.

We may also release information in order to comply with the law, enforce our site policies or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety. Non-personally identifiable information may be provided to third parties for advertising, marketing or other uses

 

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Third party links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third party services or products on this website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Takedown Requests

My Life as Mum sometimes publishes images from third-party websites. Use of these images is considered fair use under copyright laws and is attributed to the owner. If you believe that the website has published your copyrighted work in a way that constitutes copyright infringement and falls outside fair use, please contact us at coralie@mylifeasmum.com and request the image to be removed. We will then remove the image.

 

Newsletters

Website users are able to subscribe to our newsletter emails, which may be used for advertising purposes. These emails may contain tracking pixels to enable analysis of online marketing campaigns. As a result of these pixels, My Life as Mum may see if and when you open an email and which links contained within the email that you click. This means My Life as Mum can adapt and improve the content of future newsletters.

 

Affiliate Links

We may include affiliate links in posts where we recommend products. Affiliate links are embedded tracking links. When a user purchases something through one of these links we may receive a small commission at no extra cost to them. These links are always disclosed. If you click on an affiliate link a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for the purposes of commissions.

My Life as Mum is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme (view their privacy policy here), an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com. As an Amazon Associate we earn from qualifying purchases. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.

 

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

 

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

You may opt-out of future email communications by following the unsubscribe links in our emails. You may also notify us at coralie@mylifeasmum.com to be removed from our mailing list.
