So what better way to protect your confidentiality than by providing you with this announcement so you may be more aware of how we treat online information based on common legal practices.
Furthermore, we provide this policy so that you can make sound and relevant choices about how your information will be collected or used.
What information do we collect and share?

This may include but are not limited to, your name, address, email address, phone number, or social media account.
Perhaps in the near promising and bright future, we may have to permit third-party applications to also access the same data from the information that we have gathered from your end. This is not something that you should be worried about, though.
We only allow third-party applications to access your data only if they are reliable and can keep secrets as we do!
Besides, in time, we might have to need them because we also want to provide you with responsive and targeted advertisements which would be interesting for you.
How do we deal with this information?
Your information is as precious to us as they are to you.
If you value your personal information because it is your identity, we also find your information very valuable not only because they come from you, our clients; but also because they help us in the following key areas:
- They are used for the operation and maintenance of SenseMother.
- They help in the improvement of SenseMother and how we can further personalize it to cater to your interests.
- They allow us to understand our clients better in terms of how clients find SenseMother helpful for all their daily troubleshooting needs or activities.
- They help us in discovering new services or products to develop.
Basically, it just allows us to communicate better with you. So take it easy and relax. Your information is used only to improve our services for you- nothing more.
Use of log files
Yes, we keep logs. We keep a very discreet record of our clients who visit our site.
We do this not because we want to, but because we comply with standard procedures especially when it comes to log files or automatic information.

Third-Party Privacy Policies

However, they are also merely used to gauge how effective their advertising strategies are and to further personalize their web content so it may be more responsive to visitors like you. you see on websites that you visit.
However, we encourage you to consult the Privacy Policies of these third-party advertisement services so you may be able to gather enough information in terms of their practices when it comes to gathering information.

The California Consumer Privacy Act is a recent statute to further enhance consumer protection and privacy rights. We’d like you to know that we are CCPA-compliant.
Therefore, we provide our consumers, especially those residing in California, their consumer rights in terms of disclosing their personal information.
Rest assured, we will never do anything to breach compliance with the CCPA like selling your information. That is a big NO for us.
What this means is SenseMother will never take it against you should you exercise any of your rights as clearly established in the CCPA.
We’re good like that. Should you feel your CCPA rights are violated in any way, feel free to contact us and we’ll resolve the matter straight away!
In compliance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we don’t collect Personal Identifiable Information from children 12 years old and below. Thus, we may ask parents or guardians to verify age and determine whether a user is 12 years old or under.
This shall be enforceable in instances where we may give ads that could possibly be child-targeted. So we ask the active participation of parents and guardians to monitor the online activities of their children.
If you believe that your child may participate in online activities that would jeopardize disclosure of their Personal Identifiable Information, we strongly urge you to contact us and we will do everything that we can to confiscate such data in our system.
