PRIVACY POLICY


Protecting your personal privacy is important to Mother Industries LLC (“we,” “us,” or “Mother”). The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to help you understand how Mother collects, uses and safeguards the information you provide to us. This Privacy Policy is solely applicable for the website located at http://mothernewyork.com (the “Website”).


By using or accessing the Website, you signify your agreement to be bound by this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR OTHERWISE USE THE WEBSITE.


Personally Identifiable Information That We Collect

ANIMAL will not collect personally identifiable information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. The personally identifiable information which you may provide to us could include your complete name and e-mail address for purposes such as posting a comment or RSVPing to an event or signing up for a commenting account.


Non-Personal or Aggregate Information That We Collect

When you access the Website, we may automatically collect non-personally identifiable information from you, such as IP address, web pages viewed, browser type, referring service, usage and browsing habits on the Website, and similar data. We may also aggregate demographic information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular state) in a manner which does not identify any one individual.


Information Use

We will only use your personally identifiable information as described below, unless you have specifically consented to another type of use, either at the time the personally identifiable information is collected from you or through some other form of consent from you or notification to you:


We may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your inquires or requests, including confirmation of event RSVPs.


We may use your personally identifiable information to send emails from time to time, but we will not provide your personally identifiable information to third parties for them to contact you directly unless otherwise permitted by this Privacy Policy or if you provide your consent.


We may permit our vendors and subcontractors to access your personally identifiable information, but they are only permitted to do so in connection with performing services for us. They are not authorized by us to use the information for their own benefit.


We may disclose personally identifiable information as required by law or legal process.


We may disclose personally identifiable information to investigate suspected fraud, harassment or other violations of any law, rule or regulation, or the terms or policies for our services or our sponsors.


We may transfer your personally identifiable information in connection with the sale or merger or change of control of the Website, Mother or the division responsible for the services with which your personally identifiable information is associated.


We may share your personally identifiable information with an affiliate of Mother who is in the same corporate family as us as long as their privacy practices are substantially similar to ours.


Non-personally identifiable or aggregate information may be shared with any number of parties, provided that such information shall not specifically identify you.


Security

The security of your personally identifiable information is very important to us. When we collect your personally identifiable information, we use reasonable efforts to protect it from unauthorized access. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that your personally identifiable information will be completely free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers and your use of the Website demonstrates your assumption of this risk.


Your Disclosures in Blogs and Other Social Media

You should be aware that personally identifiable information which you voluntarily include and transmit online in a publicly accessible blog, social media platform or otherwise may be viewed and used by others without any restrictions. We are unable to control such uses of your personally identifiable information, and by using such services you assume the risk that the personally identifiable information provided by you may be viewed and used by third parties for any number of purposes.


User Content

Any User Content (as defined in the Terms of Use) will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. See the Terms of Use for additional details.


Children

We do not intentionally collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. When we become aware that personally identifiable information from a child under 13 has been collected without such child’s parent or guardian’s consent, we will use all reasonable efforts to delete such information from our database.


Transfer of Personally Identifiable Information into the USA

Our servers are maintained in the United States of America. By using the Website or participating in the services, you freely and specifically give us your consent to export your personally identifiable information to the USA and to store and use it in the USA as specified in this Privacy Policy.


Other Services

As a convenience to you, the Website may contain links and/or embedded access to third party websites not owned or controlled by Mother. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these third party websites. When you use such third party websites, you do so at your own risk.


Changes to this Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, add or remove portions from this Privacy Policy at any time. However, if at any time in the future we plan to use personally identifiable information in a way that materially differs from this Privacy Policy, including sharing such information with more third parties, we will post such changes here and provide you the opportunity to opt-out of such differing uses. Your continued use of the Website following the posting of any changes to this Privacy Policy means you accept such changes.


Website Terms of Use

Use of the Website is governed by and subject to the Terms of Use contained at www.mothernewyork.com. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into such Terms of Use.
