INFORMATION BABYNAMESHUB.COM GATHERS AND TRACKS
BabyNamesHub.com gathers the following types of information about users:
Optional Voluntary Information
In order to access or use certain services and capabilities on our Site, you may be required to voluntarily submit certain Personal Information. The use of these services or capabilities is purely optional, so you are not required to submit any Personal Information to BabyNamesHub.com if you do not wish to use them. Some of these capabilities include submission of photos; participation in surveys, contests, or sweepstakes; or to submit feedback to us.
BabyNamesHub.com tracks user traffic patterns and content accessed throughout our Site. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. BabyNamesHub.com sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms users of our Site enter in our Search function, but this tracking is not associated with individual users. This information allows us to better tailor our content to readers' needs and to help our advertisers and sponsors better understand our audience.
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
We may collect information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser, such as your IP address, the address of the web page you were visiting when you accessed our Web Site, information on your operating system and browser, and the date and time of your visit. Such information does not by itself identify you personally. However, if you have registered on the Site, it may be possible for us to link the information provided by your browser to information that identifies you personally. In addition, we may review our server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we might share our server logs -- which contain visitors' IP addresses -- with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
USE OF INFORMATION COLLECTED ON THE SITE
BabyNamesHub.com creates aggregate reports on user demographics and traffic patterns for advertisers, sponsors and partners. This allows our advertisers to advertise more effectively, and allows our users to receive advertisements that are pertinent to their needs. Because we don't track usage patterns in a manner which can be identified to individual users, an advertiser or sponsor will never know that a specific user clicked their ad.

For example, during your visit to our Site you may link to, or view certain content that is actually created or hosted by a third party.

BabyNamesHub.com is not responsible for the actions or policies of such third parties and is not liable to you for any claims that may arise from your interaction with those third parties or their sites. You should exercise caution and check the applicable privacy policies of those third parties when providing Personal Information or another party's information on a feature or page operated by a third party.
