Parentology is committed to respecting the privacy rights and concerns of all users of our website and/or service (collectively, the “Site”). As such, we have established and implemented this privacy statement to inform visitors and users of how we use and protect the information we collect on the Site.

1.0 How We Collect Information
1.1 User IP Address
Each time a user visits the Site, our web server automatically recognizes the user’s IP address and the Web page from which the user came. The user’s IP address is used to help identify the user and to gather broad demographic information about the user. We also use IP addresses collected to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer the Site, and to better serve users in using the services and features of the Site.
1.2 Cookies and Action Tags
The first time a user visits the Site or provides an e-mail address in connection with their activities at the Site, we may assign an identification number to that e-mail address and/or deploy a cookie to the user’s personal computer (PC). Cookies are small bits of electronic information that a website sends to a visitor’s browser and are stored on the visitor’s hard drive. Whenever that user comes back to the Site using the same PC, the cookie allows the Site to identify the user and to recall the user’s e-mail address. These cookies also allow us to provide information and advertisements targeted to your interests and to keep a record of the subjects and portions of the Site you viewed on your visits to the Site. Third parties may also use these cookies to provide you with advertisements regarding information, products and services targeted to your interests. You may remove cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.
In addition, advertisements displayed on the Site may contain cookies. The companies who serve our advertisements transfer cookies independent of us, and, as such, we do not control the use of such cookies and in many instances have no access to the information collected by them.
Action Tags, Web Beacons and other Data Collection Methods: An action tag or a web-beacon (also known as a clear gif or a pixel tag) is a method used to track responses or actions by visitors who view certain advertisements or other information on a site. Action tags are 1×1 pixel images embedded in a website page that are used to transparently collect information. We may use action tags to count the number of times that visitors click on a particular banner ad, third party link provided on our Site, or visit various pages within our Site and to provide information about what products are viewed or purchased.
1.3 Personal Information
“Personal Information” means information that can be used to identify and contact you. You do not need to submit Personal Information to access certain areas of the Site, but if you do not want to disclose certain Personal Information to us, you will not be able to access certain aspects of the services we offer.
If you wish to register for and receive our email newsletter, we require you to provide us with certain Personal Information, e.g., your name and email address. If, at any time, you provide us with other Personal Information in connection with your activities on the Site (such as name, address, birth date, gender, etc.), we may store that information, along with your email address, in our user database.
