If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies
We collect certain information about how visitors and users to the Website use the Website by using technology called “cookies,” which are informational markers that a Website transfers to an individual’s hard-drive for record keeping purposes. Cookies can enhance your online experience by automatically saving your preferences. We use cookies to provide you with a better online experience. The information collected through the use of cookies allows us to know at what times and for how long you logged on to the Website, so that we may try to understand how to best serve your needs. If you object to the use of cookies for any reason, you may set your Internet browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which gives you the opportunity to decide whether to accept it. Please note that if you decline to receive cookies, you may have difficulty in using certain features of the Website.

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

We are not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party sites. When linking to a third party site please be sure to review that Terms of Use and Privacy Policy applicable to that site since they may be different from those governing our Website.

Analytics
We use Google Analytics for tracking visitors and aggregating information about the traffic to our websites. The Google Analytics privacy policy can be found here:  https://policies.google.com/privacy. You can learn more about how to opt-out of tracking in Google Analytics here.

Who We Share Your Data With
We will not share your personal information with others except as indicated below, or except when we inform you in advance and give you the opportunity to opt out.

We will share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of Latina Moms when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.

We may share personal information with third parties in limited circumstances, such as complying with legal requirements; preventing fraud; protecting the personal safety of our users; or when a user is believed to be in violation of the Terms of Use and/or any state, federal and/or international laws and/or regulations. It should be noted that we use the services of companies such as Google Analytics to measure demographic information pertaining to our website traffic; however, no personally identifiable information is used to compile such information.

How Long We Retain Your Data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
