What kind of information we collect:
There are two types of information that we collect: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such information may include your name, address, email address, telephone number, birth date (primarily for eligibility purposes) and billing and credit card information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, such as demographic information (like age, profession, current location, zip code, birth date, year of birth, or gender). Non-personally identifiable information may also include user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, purchasing history and trends, responses to questionnaires, and statistical data involving the use of the Site and Services. This is collected for statistical purposes, for offerings by Bellybaloo and by third parties of additional services and/or products, and for evaluating the Site and Services to make them more efficient and useful.
Marketing and Sales Materials
Bellybaloo offers a free service to members and their contacts and pays for the service by contacting members with sales and marketing messages from Partners. Bellybaloo reserves the right to contact a Member using their email address, mailing address, or telephone number, or directly through their Bellybaloo account, for sales or marketing purposes. Bellybaloo does not share the restricted contact information with outside parties. Individuals who become registered users of Bellybaloo give us permission to send Members marketing materials and our electronic newsletter and so that we may communicate information to members from third parties including information about products and services.

We may use your information to send you a welcoming email that may confirm your user name and password. If you "opt-in" and create a Bellybaloo account, becoming a Bellybaloo member, we may send you electronic newsletters, contact you about the Services, products, other services from our Partners, information and news that may be of interest to you, and provide you with targeted feedback. If you no longer desire to receive these communications, you must cancel your Bellybaloo account, or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will cancel your account for you. In addition, if you identify yourself to us by sending us an email with questions or comments, we may use your information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file your questions or comments for future reference. We may also use the information collected to send you important service announcements and updates regarding the Services or, if applicable, about your billing account status. You will not be able to unsubscribe from these service announcements and updates as they contain important information relevant to your use of the Services.
There are instances where your data may be used and disclosed including, but not limited to, the following:
Bellybaloo uses Member's data internally, as needed, for research, for maintenance and operation of the Site, and to create the best possible tools and functionality for patients.
Bellybaloo may use a Member's data in the case of an emergency or other circumstance that we determine requires a member of the management team to directly contact the Member.
Bellybaloo may share or disclose a Member's data where required by law or to comply with legal process.
In the event Bellybaloo goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another organization, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, the Member's Data, including Personal Information, might be among the assets transferred. Members will be notified via this Site of any such change in ownership or control of Personal Information.
For sales and marketing purposes as described above.
