INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may collect information that you voluntarily give us, as well as location-based information and site visitorship data as described below.
Voluntary Information: Personally Identifiable Information

As is true of most websites, we automatically gather information about your computer such as your IP address, time and date of visit, browser type, referring/exit pages and operating system. We may log this information for system administration, order verification, internal marketing and system troubleshooting purposes.
We collect such personally identifiable information that you give us so that we may:

We will use the personally identifiable information we collect to provide you with specific information and services that you request, and with additional information and services that may be of interest to you. By providing your personally identifiable information, you fully understand and consent to the collection and processing of such information in the United States of America and other countries.
To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data. While we strive to protect our user’s personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online, and you do so at your own risk.
Additionally when you place an order, attempt to make an order, submit your account information or participate in our promotions or surveys, our Site collects your personal information such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, and payment (such as credit card, or electronic pay method) and billing information) . We will use your information collected online to process and fulfill your order. Additionally, your e-mail address may be collected at various points within the Site, including when you place an order with us, so that we can send you any necessary e-mail messages related to your order, such as order and shipping confirmations.
In addition, we maintain a record of your purchase history, product interests, and whatever other membership details that might enable us to improve your shopping experience. Analytics such as Site use and traffic patterns are also considered to help us improve the design of our website, the products we make and exclusive services we offer. We understand and recognize that we must maintain and use customer information responsibly.
Please note: You are not required to submit any information to our Site. However, without providing the requested information, you may be unable to access certain features of our Site, including viewing our product details, creating or managing an account, placing an order or logging into account -related services.
We may collect information relating to your general location based on:
(1) information you manually provide,
(2) the IP address of your computer,
(3) Global Positioning System (GPS) information sent to us by your GPS-enabled device, and
(4) the proximity of your laptop computer, mobile wireless device, personal digital assistant, personal communication system, or other communications device (your “Personal Communication Device”) to the nearest radio tower or cell site.
We may also be able to detect when your Personal Communication Device is activated as well as when and how you are using it. WeNatal may collect data to verify the information you provide manually and to provide you with location-based content. We may associate Personally Identifiable Information with location-based information provided by you or your Personal Communication Device solely for our internal use and to improve your experience with the Services.
Site Visitorship: Automatically collected information
Like many websites on the Internet, we automatically track certain information about you as you visit and use our Site to help us (i) better understand, improve and modify the Services, (ii) better understand how the Services are used and experienced, and (iii) better understand how we can enhance your or others overall experience on one or more of the Services, including providing advertising and other information that is relevant to you. To that end, we may use aggregated, anonymous online traffic behavior along with information from third parties to track usage trends and thereby improve the Site.
The kind of information we may collect includes:
- the date and time you access the Services;
- your internet service provider, mobile carrier, or data services provider;
- your Internet Protocol (IP) address;
- the pages you visit;
- the products you purchase and review;
- the links you click;
- how and when you interact with the services;
- the content, images and advertisements you select; and
- how you arrived at the Site and where you go when you leave.
This automatically gathered data includes information provided through the use of “cookies”, local storage, e-tags, log files and “clear GIFs” (described in more detail below).
When you use our Site, we automatically collect information on the type of device you use and operating system version.
We collect the above data using the following technologies:
- “Cookies” are data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org.
- “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
- “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.
SMS/MMS MOBILE MESSAGING MARKETING PROGRAM
A cookie is a small file, which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow webs applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website. For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
INFORMATION FROM CLEAR GIFs
Also, we and our third-party service providers sometimes use “clear GIFs” in connection with cookies and other website functions and emails. Clear GIFs perform administrative functions, but without detracting from your online experience, including being used to perform statistical and administrative tasks such as measuring traffic on the Services and its Web pages, verifying advertising avenues and positioning images on the web, and allowing us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and email marketing campaigns by letting us know which marketing emails have been opened by you or other recipients. However, please note that clear GIFs do not collect Personal Information.
Web data is collected to monitor user trends on our Site. Analytical data such as hits to our server, traffic patterns and page views shows us where our audience is coming from and how they interact with us online. This type of collected information does not personally identify specific Site users. In addition, like most websites, our Site may utilize “web beacons,” “pixel tags” or other tracking technologies to help us study the actions of our users through non-personally identifiable information. This data may be aggregated with similar data collected from other users to help us improve our products, services and our overall Site experience.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this privacy statement. We do not sell (in the traditional sense of the word), rent or exchange your personal information to third parties and we do not authorize the collection of your personally identifiable information by any third parties for the third parties’ own use. We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as charging your order, shipping your order, enhancing your experience on the Site or offering customer service. For example, we share your personal information with:
- Shopify to power our online store — you can read more about how Shopify uses your personal information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy.
- Recharge to power our subscriptions; you can read more about how Recharge uses your personal information here: https://rechargepayments.com/privacy-policy.
- Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site; you can read more about how Google uses your Personal Information here: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
These companies (and all of our contracted third parties) are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide services to us.
We may also disclose your personal information:
- As required by law such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process;
- When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government request; or
- To any other third party with your prior consent to do so. We may share non-personal information (such as the number of daily visitors to a particular web page or the size of an order placed on a certain date) with third parties such as advertising partners. This information does not directly personally identify you or any user.
DO NOT TRACK
California’s “Do Not Track” Notice: “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) is a preference you can set in your web browser to let the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting information about you. The Site does not currently respond to “Do Not Track” settings. For further details regarding DNT, visit http://donottrack.us.

You may change any of your personal information in your account by editing your profile within your account or by sending an e-mail to us at the e-mail address set forth above. You may request deletion of your personal information by us, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to honor your request, but please note that we may be required to keep such information and not delete it (or to keep this information for a certain time, in which case we will comply with your deletion request only after we have fulfilled such requirements). When we delete any information, it will be deleted from the active database, but may remain in our archives. We may also retain your information for fraud or similar purposes.
SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES
Targeted Advertising (also known as online behavioral advertising) uses information collected on an individual’s web browsing behavior such as the pages they have visited or the searches they have made. Third parties collect this information by placing or accessing cookies in your browser when you visit this, or other, websites. If you would like to learn more about the third party advertisers that may be aware of the fact that you visit this website, and to understand your choices about having such advertisers’ cookies turned off, please visit www.networkadvertising.org.
Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other reasons, we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize our business. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personally identifiable information to prospective or actual purchasers or joint venture partners, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is our practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

RIGHT TO INFORMATION
If you are a resident of a jurisdiction that coveys specific rights to you regarding your personal information (such as the European Union), you may have the right to access the personal information we hold about you and to ask that your personal information be corrected, updated, or deleted. If you would like to exercise your right under your specific jurisdiction, please contact us at email@example.com. We do our best to address the requests as quickly as possible. However, not all databases can immediately be updated, and e we might not be able to send changes to partners, suppliers or external service providers who have already received your data or information. Applicable law may require or permit us to decline your request. If we decline your request, we will tell you why, subject to legal restrictions. We will keep information in certain circumstances even if you might have asked for it to be deleted so that we can settle disputes, analyze programs, implement our general terms and conditions of business and shopping rules and comply with legal requirements. For both technical and legal reasons this information is never completely deleted from our database, including saved back-up systems.
California’s “Shine the Light” law (Civil Code Section § 1798.83) permits certain users of our Site that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our Site is not intended for children under 16 years of age. No one under age 16 may provide any personal information to or on the Site.

If you are under 16, do not provide any information to us through the Site, use any of the interactive or public comment features of the Site or provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address or user name you may use.

WeNatal is not an entity that is covered by HIPAA. The HIPAA privacy rules apply to health plans, health care clearinghouses, to any health care provider who transmits health information in electronic form in connection with transactions for which the Secretary of HHS has adopted standards under HIPAA (the “covered entities”) and their service providers (“business associates”). This means that the information that you provide to us is not protected by the HIPAA privacy rules and regulations.
The security of your information is of the upmost importance to us. We use 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to protect your online order information. SSL technology encryption ensures no one other than us can decode your information. SSL encodes your personal information by encrypting credit card number, name, address, phone number, identification number and your password so that they cannot be read by unauthorized parties.
Your entire website experience is in secure mode. You can tell when you are in secure mode when the website address is preceded with “https” and, depending on your browser, you may see a padlock next to the website address as well. Some websites will switch to secure mode when a user starts checkout by replacing “http” with “https”. We have decided to make our entire website secure by replacing all of our pages with “https”. While we may provide encryption technologies and use other reasonable precautions to protect confidential information and provide suitable security, we do not guarantee that information transmitted through the Internet is secure, or that such transmissions will be free from delay, interruption, interception or error.
YOUR ROLE IN PROTECTING INFORMATION
Although we work hard to protect your privacy, we cannot guarantee that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have chosen an account password, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. By using the Site, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Site and that any personal information, general information, or other data or information received from you to us is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
