Privacy Policy Statement

This Privacy Policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned about how their “Personally Identifiable Information” (PII) is being used online. PII, as used in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. This Privacy Policy covers all of the sites on the Mother Maggie’s platform, which is owned by Robert Ian Philips (“Mother Maggie’s,” “us,” or “we.”). The Privacy Policy governs your access to and use of the services, websites, and applications offered by Mother Maggie’s (the “Services”). Please read this statement carefully before using or proceeding to access Mother Maggie’s. Your use of Mother Maggie’s indicates you have read and understood this Privacy Policy and indicates your agreement to abide by the Terms of Use in effect and to be subject to this policy.


What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our blog, website, or app?

·         We collect information from you when you register on the site, place an order, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or communication such as email, or participate in another site feature.

·         When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, email address, mailing address, credit card information, or other details to help you with your experience. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

·         We also collect information about gift recipients so that we can fulfill a gift purchase. The information we collect about gift recipients is not used for marketing purposes.

·         Like many websites, we use “cookies” to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our website. Please refer to the “Do we use ‘cookies’?” section below for information about cookies and how we use them.


When do we collect information?

We collect information when you place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, or enter information on our site.


How do we use your information?

We may use the information we collect from you when you register, make a purchase, sign up for our newsletter, respond to a survey or marketing communication, surf the website, or use certain other site features in the following ways:

·         To allow us to better serve you in responding to your customer service requests.

·         To administer a contest, promotion, survey, or other site feature.

·         To process your transactions quickly.

·         To send periodic emails regarding your order or other products and services if you have opted in to receive our email newsletter. If you would no longer like to receive promotional email from us, please refer to the “How can you opt out, remove, or modify information you have provided to us?” section below. If you have not opted in to receive email newsletters, you will not receive those emails.


How do we protect visitor information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be accessed only as stated above. However, no company, including Mother Maggie’s, can fully eliminate security risks associated with the transmission of personal information through online transactions, and you do so at your own risk.


Do we use “cookies”?

Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. For instance, we use cookies to help us remember and process the items in your shopping cart. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity, which enables us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understand our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browsers (like Internet Explorer or Chrome) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make our site experience more efficient and some of our services will not function properly.


Do we disclose information we collect to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your PII (Personally Identifiable Information) unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term “outside parties” does not include Mother Maggie’s. It also does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property, or safety.

However, nonpersonally identifiable information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.


How can you opt out, remove, or modify information you have provided to us?

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

To be in accordance with the CAN-SPAM Act we agree to the following:

·         If, at any time, you would like to unsubscribe from receiving future emails, you can email us at mothermaggies [at] gmail [dot] com and well will promptly remove you from ALL correspondence.


Third party payment processors

Mother Maggie’s uses third party payment processors to assist in processing your personally identifiable payment information securely. Such third party processors’ used of your personal information is governed by their respective privacy policies, which may or may not contain privacy protections as protective as this Privacy Policy. Payments are currently processed and managed using the third party vendors below.

·         Stripe – privacy policy


Third party links

In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may include third party links on our site. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content or the activities of these linked sites. That said, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these linked sites (including if a specific link does not work.)


Social media

This website provides users the opportunity to interact and post content through various social media sites. Your interactions with such tools, and any information you provide in connection with these interactions are publicly viewable outside of this website domain. Each social media site has its own privacy policies that may be more or less protective than this Privacy Policy. If you do not wish for this information to be disclosed, then you should not use these tools. We are not responsible for information you choose to post with such tools.

Our site also includes social media features, such as the Facebook button, and widgets, such as the Share button or interactive miniprograms that run on our site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.


California Online Privacy Protections Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law’s reach stretches well beyond California to require a person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting PII (Personally Identifiable Information) from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals with whom it is being shared and to comply with this policy.

According to CalOPPA we agree to inform you of the following:

·         Users can visit our site anonymously.

·         Once this Privacy Policy is created, we will add a link to it on our homepage, or as a minimum, on the first significant page after entering the website.

·         Our Privacy Policy link includes the word “Privacy” and can easily be found as specified above.

·         Users will be notified of any Privacy Policy changes via our Privacy Policy page.

·         Users are able to change their personal information with us via email.

·         We do not respond to web browser “do not track” or other related mechanisms at this time.

·         We do allow third party behavioral tracking.


COPPA (Children Online Privacy Protection Act)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and online safety.

In accordance with COPPA, we do not specifically market to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such info from our files.


Changes to our policy

If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes on this page. Policy changes apply only to information collected after the date of the change. This policy was last modified on January 18, 2016.
