The information we gather on DiscoverYourDaughter.com falls into two categories: (1) information you supply when you register or initiate transactions, and (2) tracking information collected as you navigate through our site. Personally Identifying Information Registration Information. When you register, we collect some personally identifying information about you, including your name, e-mail address, user name and password. In addition, when you place an order for products, we may collect additional information such as your address and phone number for the purpose of processing your order. We may also occasionally collect your name, e-mail address, and state, if you choose to participate in surveys on our site. These surveys will be used to tailor the site to your interests, to make it more useful to you, and to help improve the site generally.
To help us serve you better, we use “cookies” to store and sometimes to track user information. A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie contains a unique number that allows our site to identify your computer. For example, cookies allow us to keep track of your user name and password (if you are a registered visitor) so you don’t have to re-enter that information each time you visit our site. The help function on most browsers contains information on how to set your browser to notify you before accepting cookies or to disable cookies entirely. However, if you don’t accept cookies, you may not be able to take advantage of various features on our sites that are available to other visitors. In addition, our advertising and marketing partners may use their own cookies. Cookies can also help to speed the loading of pages, keep track of purchases if you are shopping online, or otherwise make web-surfing easier. Cookies help us determine how many people visit our site, which of our web pages are viewed the most often, and how much time people spend on our various web pages. This information helps us determine which of our web features are successful and which need improvement. We also record IP addresses for the sole purpose of improving the function of our polls and comments features. (An IP address is the number assigned to your computer when you surf the web.) The information that we collect through cookies and IP addresses is anonymous and not personally identifiable.
Our primary goal in collecting information is to provide you with a customized experience when visiting our site and to make our site more valuable to you. Vendors and Service Providers: To make your experience on our site more useful and enjoyable, we may offer some features (such as our e-mail newsletter) in conjunction with third party providers (“Provider Partners”). We share with these Provider Partners only such information as is necessary for them to fulfill whatever services we have contracted with them to provide. Their use of this information will be subject to the terms of their respective privacy policies, which you can find on their web sites. We will not provide your e-mail address to such third parties unless it’s necessary to provide the services you have requested, or to allow you to participate in a co-sponsored promotion.

If we do provide access, we require those other companies to sign confidentiality agreements promising to keep secret any information they see. All information may be transferred as part of the purchase or sale of a business.

When you register, you will also be given an opportunity to tell us whether you would like to receive e-mails about products, services, and special offers from third-party providers. Though we hope that you will find both types of promotional e-mails helpful, if at any time you decide that you no longer wish to receive either or both types of e-mails, you may go to the My Account page and update your preferences. We will make any changes you request as quickly as we can.
