The purpose of Mommy Happiness is to help others find and experience joy in their everyday lives. By offering insights, advice, tips and stories of hope, faith and encouragement I strive to help others enjoy and find purpose, power and balance in their own motherhood journey. This is my main purpose on this blog; to encourage others and to find joy.
However there are costs associated with running a website such as this, so sometimes when you print a coupon, a free e-book or click on a link I may earn a small fee from the manufacturer or company. I accept paid advertising and have affiliate links on my sidebar and in some of my posts. I may also write an underwritten post or sponsor giveaways when or if they are available.
I can assure you that anything you see advertised or supported on this blog will be something I believe to be valuable and helpful to my readers and something that fits within the purpose of this blog. My readers and my integrity mean more to me than making money, so if I don’t believe it to be useful or appropriate it will not be posted.
The views and opinions shared on this blog are completely my own and you can trust that I try my best to be honest with what I share and the opinions that I express to you. I will not share or support anything that I do not believe in or wouldn’t use myself. Please know that I always have your best interests in mind and I am committed to keeping this blog a place of encouragement, faith and hope.
The privacy of Mommy Happiness visitors is very important to us. To better protect your privacy we offer this notice to inform you of how your information is used and collected and how we safeguard that information. We never sell your information to third parties.
Collection of Personal Information
As with most other websites, we use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. The IP address, your ISP (internet service provider), the browser you used to visit our site along with the dates and times of access. This information is solely used to analyze trends, track users movement and gather broad demographic information for internal use. And most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. We only use it for analytic purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, traffic cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
Third Party Cookies and Web Beacons
We may use third party advertisements to support our site (such as Google through the Google AdSense program). Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers non-personal information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, whether you have Flash installed, and other clickstream data. This is generally used for geo targeting purposes (showing New York real estate ads to someone in New York, for example) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing cooking ads to someone who frequents cooking sites).
You can choose to disable or selectively turn off our cookies or third-party cookies in your browser settings, or by managing preferences in programs such as Norton Internet Security. However, this can affect how you are able to interact with our site as well as other websites. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts.
Links to Third Party Websites
We may include links on this site or in posts for your use and reference. We have no control over and are not responsible for the privacy policies on these websites. You should be aware that the privacy policies of these sites may differ from Mommy Happiness and that we can not be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide while visiting such sites as they are not governed by this privacy statement.
Surveys and Giveaways
If we host a survey or a giveaway we may collect contact information including e-mail address, demographic information, or other information relevant to that survey and/or giveaway. Any information collected will not be used for any purpose other than to contact the winners.
Changes to the Privacy Statement
The contents of this statement may be altered at any time, due to our discretion.
