We are extremely aware of your needs for security and privacy. This page explains how BirthRoot Midwifery (“we” or “us”) protects your privacy on the childbirth preparation course website (the “Site”).

1. What Personal Information Do We Collect?

Information You Provide: We receive and store information you enter. For example, when you make a purchase you supply information such as your username, address, phone number, or name. We use the information that you provide to respond to your requests, customize future purchases for you, improve our website, and communicate with you.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use “cookies.” 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.

Web beacons: 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.

Other Information: Every computer has an IP (Internet Protocol) address. IP addresses of computers used to visit this site are noted. In addition, we automatically collect other information such as email addresses, browser types, operating systems, and the URL addresses of sites clicked to and from this site.

2. How Do We Use Your Information?

We use the information we collect from you while you are using the Site in a variety of ways, including using the information to customize features and make other offers available to you via email, direct mail, or otherwise.

Agents: We employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, and processing credit card payments. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.

Special Notices: We may send you special notices from time to time, unless you choose to “opt-out” of receiving such notices in your profile. You may “opt-out” at any time by clicking a link in your email.  If we send you offers from other businesses, we do not share your personal information with them. The offers come directly through us.

Law Enforcement: If we receive a lawful court order to release account or other personal information, we will comply with the law. We will also release information in the exceedingly unlikely event that it can protect the life, safety, or property of others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

3. How Do We Store Your Information?

Your information is stored in a secure database on this website as well as with our communication partner that delivers BirthRoot Midwifery Birth email, snail mail, and text content. Your information can only be accessed by people who help manage those lists in order to administer the site and deliver e-mail to those who would like to receive BirthRoot Midwifery material.

All of the messaging or emails that are sent to you by BirthRoot Midwifery include an unsubscribe link in them. You can remove yourself at any time from our mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link that can be found in every communication that we send you.

4. How Do We Protect the Security of Your Information?

  • We use encryption to protect your information contained in our database.
  • We use a firewall to protect against unlawful intrusion.
  • We limit access to your information on a “need to know” basis.
  • Our payment processor has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor, and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available.
  • No system can guarantee absolute security. However, we take every reasonable precaution to assure that your data is secure.

5. Minors:

We do not sell products or services to minors. If you are under 18, you may use this site only with involvement of a parent or guardian.

6. Other Websites:

Various Web sites may be linked to and from this site. If you elect to visit another site, your privacy depends on the policy of that site. We do not pass any additional information about you as a user to third party web sites. You may also wish to consult privacy guidelines such as those recommended by the Online Privacy Alliance (http://privacyalliance.org).
