In addition, we collect information as part of your Profile, such as your due date, date of birth, child's date of birth, as well as sizing, fit and other style preference information.
When you receive a shipment, we record what you keep and what you return. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail or through the Services, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the message.
If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply.
When you place an order for the Services or when you order products through the Services, we or our third party payment provider will collect payment, shipping, and billing information in order to process the transaction.
When you post content (text, images, photographs, videos, messages, comments, or any other kind of content) on our Services, the information contained in your posting will be stored in our servers, and other users of the Services will be able to see it if you post it in an area made public, such as comments on our blogs.
We retain information on your behalf, such as messages you send (including the content of the message and the recipient data) using your Account.
When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information.
If you participate in a sweepstakes, contest, or giveaway on our Services, we may ask you for your e-mail address and/or home phone number, to notify you if you win. We may also ask for first and last names and sometimes post office addresses to verify your identity. In some situations, we may need additional information as a part of the entry process, such as a prize selection choice. These sweepstakes and contests are voluntary.
We may also collect personal information at other points in our Services that state that personal information is being collected.
Information Collected Automatically.
Generally, when you use our Services, some information is automatically collected. For example, when you use our Services, your geographic location, how you use the Services, information about the type of device you use, your mobile network information, your Open Device Identification Number ("ODIN"), date/time stamps for your visit, your unique device identifier ("UDID"), and your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and domain name are all collected. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you and administer and improve the Services.
As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider ("ISP"), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to maintain and improve the performance of the Services.
Location Information: When you use our services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. If you have enabled location services on your phone, we collect your location information to help personalize your user experience. If you do not want this information collected by us, you can disable location services on your phone.
What we do with your personally identifiable information
It is always up to you whether to disclose personally identifiable information to us, although if you elect not to do so, we reserve the right not to register you as a user or provide you with any products or services.
"Personally identifiable information" means information that can be used to identify you as an individual, such as, for example:
· your name, company, email address, phone number, billing address, and shipping address
· your Howdy Baby Box user ID and password
· any account-preference information you provide us
· your computer's domain name and IP address, indicating where your computer is located on the Internet
· session data for your login session, so that our computer can 'talk' to yours while you are logged in.
If you do provide personally identifiable information to us, either directly or through a reseller or other business partner, we will:
· not sell or rent it to a third party without your permission — although unless you opt-out (see below), we may use your contact information to provide you with information we believe you need to know or may find useful, such as (for example) news about our services and products including affiliate products, and modifications to the Terms of Service;
· take commercially reasonable precautions to protect the information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction;
· not use or disclose the information except:
- as necessary to provide services or products you have ordered, such as (for example) by providing it to a carrier to deliver products you have ordered;
- in the aggregate with other information in such a way so that your identity cannot reasonably be determined (for example, statistical compilations);
- as required by law, for example, in response to a subpoena or search warrant;
- to outside auditors who have agreed to keep the information confidential;
- as necessary to enforce the Terms of Service;
- as necessary to protect the rights, safety, or property of Howdy Baby Box, its users, or others; this may include (for example) exchanging information with other organizations for fraud protection and/or risk reduction.
Other information we collect
We may collect other information that cannot be readily used to identify you, such as (for example) the domain name and IP address of your computer. We may use this information, individually or in the aggregate, for technical administration of our Web site(s), research and development, customer- and account administration, and to help us focus our marketing efforts more precisely.

Marketing Companies. We work with a number of companies that assist in marketing our services to you on third-party websites.
