If you're a teacher or staff member of a childcare center, the administrators of the center might have special priviledges to view, grant or revoke access priviledges regarding your account.
Third party service providers and partners: we may engage third party companies or individuals as service providers or business partners to process information and support our business.

During a change to our business: if we engages in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, sale of some or all of our assets or stock, financing, public offering of securities, acquisition of all or a portion of our business, a similar transaction or proceeding, or steps in contemplation of such activities (e.g. due diligence), some or all information may be shared or transferred, subject to standard confidentiality arrangements.
Aggregated or de-identified data: we may disclose or use for any purpose aggregated or de-identified information that cannot reasonably be used to identify you or your children. For example, we may share aggregated or de-identified information with partners for business or research purposes, such as calculating the average number of diaper change per day for a baby, or finding a correlation between sleep data and feed data, or by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our services.
To comply with laws: if we receive a request for information, we may disclose information if we reasonably believe disclosure is in accordance with or required by any applicable law, regulation or legal process.

How long we keep information
Information you provide to us: your account information and all other data you provide to us is kept until you delete your account. We also retain some of your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce our agreements, to support business operations and to continue to develop and improve our services. Please refer to the section about account deletion for the policy regarding deletion.
Data we collect through automated means: we retain system data and usage data for only as long as it is necessary to provide products and services to you, perform or fulfill our contractual obligations, comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
Baby Connect takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Employee access to personally identifying information is restricted to situations in which that information is needed in order to troubleshoot, operate, develop or improve our services.
You must protect your password to prevent unauthorized third parties from accessing your account. In addition, if third parties have access to the computer you use to access your account, you must sign out of your account when you are finished to ensure protection of your information.
Cookies, mobile device identifiers and web beacons
Cookies are small files sent to your computer that uniquely identify your browser. Baby Connect sets a persistent cookie when you sign in to our web application.
This cookie allows us to recognize you as an existing user when you return to the site using the same computer and web browser, which means you do not have to sign-in at every visit.
The cookie is also used to improve your experience with the web application, for instance by storing the last selected child, classroom, childcare center or page between sessions.
If you're using our mobile application, your unique mobile device identifier is collected so we can provide a better service. For instance your mobile identifier is used to synchronize in real time the timers or the customization data to all your mobile devices on which you have signed in the application.
It is also used to send push notifications to the appropriate devices in case you've asked to receive push notifications via the application.
We also use web beacons (single-pixel images) in some of the emails (administrative or marketing) sent to users. Web beacons help us track your responses and interests and deliver relevant content and services to you. For example, they may let us know when you take actions based on the emails that we send.
Do not track policy: we do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, "do not track" signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our sites or services, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.
Links to other web sites
You can delete your account anytime you want. When you request us to delete your account for the service, your account data will be permanently expunged from our production servers and further access to your account will not be possible.
If you delete your account, the information about the children profiles will also be deleted only in those conditions:
- if you were the only caregiver for the child profile in the previous 24 months.
- or if all others caregivers who had access to the profile in the previous 24 months either removed the child profile from their account, or have communicated to us that they're authorizing the deletion of the child data.
If you delete your account but the children profiles are not deleted for the aforementioned reasons, the information you saved on the children profiles will not be deleted.
This policy is necessary to comply with our legal obligations and to resolve disputes.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for account deletion.
