When you visit websites on the Internet, your browser automatically transmits information to the sites you visit throughout every visit. Examples of such information include referral data (URL of the web page you were on before coming to Milk.ly), IP address, and your browser version. We collect this information to help improve our services and moderate the site. All the information that is automatically submitted by your browser is considered anonymous.
Milk.ly also logs information you submit through registration, forms for optional programs, surveys and other entries, cookie data and communications transmitted through Milk.ly applications. Only authorised Milk.ly staff members have access to your information in its entirety. Other employees may have access to portions of this information if it pertains to their job duties.
Your Milk.ly Profile is password-protected so that only you and authorised Milk.ly employees have access to your account information. In order to maintain this protection, do not give your password to anyone. If someone claiming to represent Milk.ly staff asks for any personal account information, including password, check their URL. If it doesn't say they are firstname.lastname@example.org, they're not. Also, if you share a computer, you should sign out of your Milk.ly account and close the browser window before someone else logs on. This will help protect your information entered on public terminals from disclosure to third parties.
When you submit information to Milk.ly, it is generally collected, processed and maintained solely by us. Sometimes we may allow partner companies to collect information about members from us or directly from you (through their web site). When Milk.ly is the source, it is usually so that we can provide a service with a partner. We choose to work with companies that we believe to be upstanding and that we believe will treat your information responsibly. But, since we don't own these companies, we can't speak for them on privacy issues. Before telling them about yourself, check out their privacy statements. If you are not satisfied with their information practices, you can choose to not use their service.
