Privacy Policy

Effective Date:  April 13, 2017

This Willow* App and Website (together, the “Services”) are made available to assist you in your breastfeeding journey and it is our intention to provide a much needed solution to your needs as well as a relatable communication tool. We at Willow (“we,” “us,” “our”) have provided this Privacy Policy to help you better understand how we collect, use and store your information. Since technology and privacy laws are always changing, we may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. If a significant change is made, we will be sure to post a notice in your account. If you continue to use the Services after these changes are posted, you agree to the revised policy. The amended Privacy Policy supersedes all previous versions of agreements, notices or statements about the Privacy Policy. In order to use our App, you must register for the App.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made part of our Terms of Service. We encourage you to review our Terms of Service, because they contain important information about your use of our Services.

Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

1) WHAT DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that we gather when you access or use the Services and upload data from your Willow Breast Pump to the Services. It also applies to Personal Information collected offline, such as the data we collect through questionnaires and forms. This Policy does not apply to the practices of entities that we do not own or control, individuals that we do not employ or manage, or other websites or digital services to which this Policy does not link.

2) WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE?

The information we gather from you enables us to (i) personalize and improve our Services, (ii) allow you to set up an account and profile that can be employed to use our Services, (iii) provide you with information, updates, offers and other communications related to our Services, (iv) analyze and report on the functioning of the Services in an aggregate manner for the benefit of our partners and (v) support your use of the Services.

We may collect the following types of information from you:

  • Personal Information You Provide to Us: We may receive and store any information you provide to us. The types of information that we collect may include your user name, email address, baby birthdate, age of child when pumping commences, geographical location, your Willow Breast Pump name and serial number, session start and end, battery charge, suction level, session timing, historical session logs, and volume pumped. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to register with us or take advantage of all of the functionality of our Services.
  • Information We Automatically Collect: We may automatically collect information about your use of the Services, including your device ID, browser type, frequency of use, and website pages visited. If this data cannot be used to identify you, we will not treat such data as Personal Information. To learn more about the Data Collection Technologies we use to automatically collect this data, please see the section below titled “Data Collection Technologies.”
  • Online Forms and Support: If you complete an online form or you engage with our Support, we will ask you to include Personal Information about yourself in order to help resolve your issue. You understand that providing your Personal Information over the Internet involves some risk, and understand that in order to receive the support you are requesting, you are accepting that risk. Further, when you seek support from us, you understand and acknowledge that the individual(s) providing you with support may need to access your information to address the problem you are seeking support for; in this case, this information will only be used to help provide you with support.
  • E-mail, Text Messages, and Marketing Communications: You may receive emails or text messages regarding your use of the Willow Breast Pump. If you do not want to receive email, text messages, or other mail from us, please contact us at care@willowpump.com  or simply opt-out from each message type by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each message. Please note that if you have opted out of receiving email or other messages from us, we may still need to contact you via email, but only with regard to the status of your account and other important administrative announcement. You cannot opt-out of these emails

3) DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

We do not share your Personal Information, except with your consent or as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. We neither rent nor sell your Personal Information to anyone. We may share your Personal information under the following circumstances:

  • Service Providers: We may share your Personal Information with companies with which we contract with to help us deliver the Services and certain business functions, such as email management, credit card processing, order fulfillment, technology hosting, and website analytics. These companies are obligated by contract to use your Personal Information only on our behalf or at our direction.
  • Business Transaction: We may sell, transfer or otherwise share some or all of our assets to a third party in connection with a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets or similar transaction, or in the event of bankruptcy. In such event, your Personal Information may be transferred to that third party.
  • As Required or Permitted by Law: We may disclose your Personal Information as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to: respond to claims and legal process (including, but not limited to, subpoenas); protect the property and rights of Willow or a third party; protect the safety of the public or any person; prevent an activity that may be illegal, unethical or legally actionable; or otherwise to comply with law.

4) DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES

We (and third parties acting on our behalf) use data collection technologies that help us manage the operation of the Services and track usage behavior so that we can make your use of the Services more enjoyable.

Our data collection technologies include

  • Cookies: Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are stored on your computer or mobile device’s browser directory. Cookies are created when you visit a website that uses cookies to keep track of your movements within the website. Cookies are useful because they allow us to recognize your device, remember your preferences, automatically log you in to your account, and provide us with information that we can use to further personalize your user experience. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.
  • Web beacons and GIFs: Certain pages on the Website contain web beacons (also known as web bugs, pixel tags and clear GIFs), which we use to monitor how users use the Website. We use web beacons in combination with Cookies to understand how our users navigate through and process the content contained on our Website.
  • Local Storage and Local Shared Objects: We use local shared objects (LSOs) such as Flash Cookies and local storage, such as HTML5 Local Storage, to enhance user experience by, for example, storing your user preferences and settings (e.g., volume/mute) in connection with animated content on the Services. Local storage is similar to browser cookies but can store data more complex than simple text. By itself, local storage cannot do anything to or with the data stored on your device. Like cookies, local storage can only access personal data that you have provided on the Services. Third parties with whom we partner to provide certain features on the Services or to display advertising based upon your web browsing activity also use Flash cookies or HTML5 to collect and store information. Various browsers may offer their own management tools for removing HTML5. To manage Flash cookies, please click here.

Your browser may allow you to manage your cookies and local storage. Because each browser is a little different, we encourage you to check your browsers’ “Help” feature to learn how to block cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, and how to disable existing cookies. For more information about managing cookies, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.

Behavioral Advertising: We may engage third parties to serve targeted advertisements on our behalf. We have implemented third party tracking tools including Google Analytics and Facebook Tools and these entities may use Data Collection Technologies to collect information about your activity on our Services and your interaction with our advertising in order to determine which ads you see on third-party websites and applications. For more information about behavioral advertising and to understand your options, including how to opt out of receiving these tailored advertisements, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices. You can opt out of Google Analytics through its currently available opt-outs for the web. Please note that when you opt out, you may still see advertisements; however, they will not be targeted based on your interests.

Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers incorporate a “do-not-track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity tracked. If a website receives a DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, Willow (along with many other website operators) do not currently respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit allaboutdnt.com.

Geolocation Tracking

Some components of the Services may include a geo-tracking feature that allows us to offer you location-based services. You can change your preferences on your mobile device and/or browser to deny us access to your geolocation. Please note that if you disable geolocation tracking, certain features of the Services may not be available to you.

5) IS PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?

Your Services account Personal Information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer, mobile device, and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.

We endeavor to protect your Personal Information to ensure that it is kept private. However, we cannot guarantee the security of such information. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of your information at any time.

6) WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION CAN I ACCESS?

We allow you to access certain categories of information that we maintain about you for the purpose of viewing, and in certain situations, updating or deleting that information. These categories may change as our Services change. Any information that is automatically uploaded from a Willow Breast Pump to the  Services, for example the volume of milk pumped, cannot be later changed or updated.

Certain information is required to access some of our Services, so your deletion of certain information, or provision of inaccurate information, may render the services inoperable, in whole or in part. When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our private records. Please note that we may use aggregate data derived from your information after you have requested it to be modified or deleted, but not in a manner that would identify you personally.

7) CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

The App is not directed to children under the age of 13, and Willow does not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children under 13 without the verifiable consent of that child’s parent or guardian. If you are aware of a child providing his or her Personal Information without parental consent, please contact us at care@willowpump.com. We will endeavor to delete all data we collected from a child under 13 if we discover we collected it without that child’s parental consent.

8) YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

Under California Civil Code §1798.83, Willow is required, once per calendar year and upon request, to disclose to California residents: (i) the identity of any third party to whom we disclosed Personal Information within the previous calendar year for the third party’s direct marketing purposes; and (ii) the type of Personal Information disclosed. To request such information, please send an email to care@willowpump.com with the subject line “California Privacy Right”.

If you are a California resident under age 18, you may request that we remove any user contribution that you publicly posted on the App. We will make a good faith effort to delete or remove your user contribution from public view as soon as reasonably practicable; however, we may be required by law to not remove or allow removal of your user contribution. To request removal of your user contribution, please send an email with a detailed description of your user contribution to care@willowpump.com. We reserve the right to request that you provide information that will enable us to confirm that you created and posted the user contribution you want removed.

9) A NOTE TO INTERNATIONAL USERS

Willow and our servers are located in the United States and subject to U.S. law. If you are accessing the App from outside the United States, please be advised that U.S. law may not offer the same privacy protections as the law of your jurisdiction. By accessing and using the App, you consent to the transfer to and processing of your Personal Information in the United States.

10) WHO CAN I CONTACT WITH A PRIVACY QUESTION?

If you have questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact us at care@willowpump.com.
