Privacy Policy

BostonTechMom is committed to respecting the privacy of users who access www.bostonstemfair.com (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy will tell you (1) what information is collected when you visit our site or send us an email, and (2) how that information is used.

Web Server Logs

When you browse through this website, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. This information does not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store information such as the following concerning your visit:

The Internet domain;

Your IP address from which you access our website;

The type of browser and operating system used to access our site;

The date and time you access our site;

The pages you visit; and

If you linked to our website from another website, the address of that website.

Web server logs are retained on a temporary basis, during which time their contents are accessible to Site administrators, and then deleted completely from our systems. Unless required by legal process, we do not link IP addresses to any personally identifiable information. This means that user sessions will be tracked by IP address, but a user’s identity will remain anonymous.

In addition, we ordinarily do not disclose to third parties Site usage by individual IP addresses, but we may do so in very limited circumstances when complying with law or legal process, working with consultants assisting us with fixing or improving the Site, or monitoring and improving the security of our network.

Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager

BostonTechMom uses Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager software to perform Site usage analytics. Google Analytics and Google Tag Manger collect anonymous information from users to help BostonTechMom track Site usage and referrals from other websites. These data are used primarily to optimize the website experience for our visitors, but we may use the data as well to assist us in developing marketing plans for the Site.

Information collected and processed by Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager include the user’s IP address, network location, and geographic location. Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager acquire all its information directly from the user, by installing a cookie (see below) on the user’s computer. The Site does not share any information it collects with Google, and Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager does not collect any personally identifying information such as names, contact information, social security numbers or financial information. Accordingly, we cannot use any information acquired by Google Analytics to contact you directly.

Cookies

Cookies are unique bits of computer data that many major websites will transfer to your computer the first time that you visit. Cookies are stored on your hard drive and may be later accessed by the website to track prior usage. As noted above, Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager will install a cookie on the hard drives of Site visitors.

Email

We will only record your email address if you send us a message or submit it to us to subscribe to join our mailing list. We will only use your email address for the purpose for which you have provided it — i.e., to respond to a message from you or to receive our emails or posts.

Disclosure to Third Parties

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this Site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.  We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request. We also reserve the right to disclose this information when special circumstances call for it, such as when disclosure is required by law or court order or when disclosure is, in our sole discretion, necessary to protect our legal rights, including intellectual property rights.

Other Websites

This website contains links to other sites. The websites of our advertisers, vendors, and other websites to which the Site links may also collect user-identifying information directly from you once you proceed to browse those sites. We are not responsible for the content or privacy policies of our advertisers, sponsors, vendors or other sites or businesses to which we provide hyperlinks or access. Please visit the relevant sites to review their privacy policies.

Notification of Changes in the Privacy Policy

We will review our security measures and Privacy Policy on a periodic basis, and we may modify our policies as appropriate. We may also change or update our Privacy Policy if we add new services or features. If any changes are made, we will make appropriate amendments to this policy and post them at the Site. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis.
