Information We Collect & How We Use It
Baby Buddy Cyprus (“site”) doesn’t make money from ads. So we don’t collect data in order to advertise to you. The tracking we do at Baby Buddy Cyprus is to make our product work as well as possible.
In order to give you the best possible experience using Baby Buddy Cyprus, we collect information from your interactions with our network. Some of this information, you actively tell us, such as your your email address, which we use to track your account or communicate with you and other registration information, which we use to understand the uptake of our services. Other information, we collect based on actions you take while using Baby Buddy Cyprus, such as what pages you access and your interactions with our product features (like daily information and videos). This information includes records of those interactions, your Internet Protocol address, information about your device (such as device or browser type), and referral information.
We use this information to:
- provide, test, improve, promote and personalize Baby Buddy Cyprus website.
- generate aggregate, non-identifying information about how people use the Baby Buddy Cyprus website.
When you create your Baby Buddy Cyprus account, and authenticate with a third-party service (like Twitter, Facebook or Google) we may collect, store, and periodically update information associated with that third-party account, such as your lists of friends or followers. We will never publish through your third-party account without your permission.
Baby Buddy Cyprus won’t transfer information about you to third parties for the purpose of providing or facilitating third-party advertising to you. We won’t sell information about you.
We may share your account information with third parties in some circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; (2) to a service provider or partner who meets our data protection standards; (3) with academic or non-profit researchers, with aggregation, anonymisation, or pseudonomisation; (4) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other legal process; (5) when we have a good faith belief that doing so will help prevent imminent harm to someone.
If we are going to share your information in response to legal process, we’ll give you notice so you can challenge it (for example by seeking court intervention), unless we’re prohibited by law or believe doing so may endanger others. We will object to requests for information about users of our services that we believe are improper.
Baby Buddy Cyprus uses third-party vendors and hosting partners, such as Amazon, for hardware, software, networking, storage, and related technology we need to run Baby Buddy Cyprus. We maintain two types of logs: server logs and event logs. By using Baby Buddy Cyprus website, you authorize Baby Buddy Cyprus to transfer, store, and use your information in Cyprus and any other EU country where we operate.

Baby Buddy Cyprus may preserve and maintain copies of your information when required to do so by law.
