Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.0)
The Website works with Mediavine to manage third-party interest-based advertising appearing on the Website. Mediavine serves content and advertisements when you visit the Website, which may use first and third-party cookies. A cookie is a small text file which is sent to your computer or mobile device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so that a website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the Website.
First party cookies are created by the website that you are visiting. A third-party cookie is frequently used in behavioral advertising and analytics and is created by a domain other than the website you are visiting. Third-party cookies, tags, pixels, beacons and other similar technologies (collectively, “Tags”) may be placed on the Website to monitor interaction with advertising content and to target and optimize advertising. Each internet browser has functionality so that you can block both first and third-party cookies and clear your browser’s cache. The “help” feature of the menu bar on most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to receive notification of new cookies, how to disable existing cookies and how to clear your browser’s cache. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, you can consult the information at https://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/.
Without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website content and features. Please note that rejecting cookies does not mean that you will no longer see ads when you visit our Site. In the event you opt-out, you will still see non-personalized advertisements on the Website.
The Website collects the following data using a cookie when serving personalized ads:
- IP Address
- Operating System type
- Operating System version
- Device Type
- Language of the website
- Web browser type
- Email (in hashed form)
Mediavine Partners (companies listed below with whom Mediavine shares data) may also use this data to link to other end user information the partner has independently collected to deliver targeted advertisements. Mediavine Partners may also separately collect data about end users from other sources, such as advertising IDs or pixels, and link that data to data collected from Mediavine publishers in order to provide interest-based advertising across your online experience, including devices, browsers and apps. This data includes usage data, cookie information, device information, information about interactions between users and advertisements and websites, geolocation data, traffic data, and information about a visitor’s referral source to a particular website. Mediavine Partners may also create unique IDs to create audience segments, which are used to provide targeted advertising.

Affiliate Program Participation
Along with original content, this site may also post offers, deals and coupons that may be of interest to and/or will benefit you, the reader. This is provided through affiliate marketing, which is done by embedding tracking links into the Website. If you click on a link for an affiliate partnership, a cookie will be placed on your browser to track any sales for purposes of commissions. In addition, when you click through some of the links on this site, this site receives a small percentage of your purchase at no extra cost to you.
The Peaceful Mom is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and links to Amazon.com. As part of this Amazon Associates program, the Website will post customized links, provided by Amazon, to track the referrals to their website. This program utilizes cookies to track visits for the purposes of assigning commission on these sales.
On the Website, you may subscribe to our email newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click. Also, this allows the Website to adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the user. This behavior is stored by our newsletter provider Feedblitz, but will not be passed on to third parties.

SENSITIVE PERSONAL INFORMATION
The Website does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 16. If a parent or guardian believes that the Website has personally identifiable information of a child under the age of 16 in its database, please contact us immediately using the “Contact” tab in the top navigation bar at ThePeacefulMom.com and we will use our best efforts to promptly remove such information from our records.

Please note that the information given on ThePeacefulMom.com is intended to give you ideas to save money, get organized and love your life, but in no way is it intended as specific legal, accounting, financial, tax, nutritional or medical advice. If you need those types of specific advice, please contact a professional adviser.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) is a privacy measure taking effect January 1, 2020, enabling California residents to exercise much greater control and transparency about how their information is collected, and used. In many ways it is similar to the European GDPR regulations, particularly in how it affects email marketing.
From the perspective of this Website, the most significant piece of the CCPA that differs from the GDPR is the CCPA’s “Do not sell my info” provision. This provision enables those covered by the CCPA to require vendors not to sell their personal information to third parties.
ThePeacefulMom.com has never sold, and will never sell, personally identifiable information (PII) about our clients, users, visitors or subscribers. So from that perspective, we have nothing to change at all in order to be compliant with the CCPA.
However, we do sometimes share and generate revenue from anonymized information with third parties and ad networks as mentioned above. Our partners may link these hashes to a cookie stored on your browser or device, and as part of that process they may collect information such as your IP address, browser or operating system type and version, and demographic or inferred-interest information. They may use this information to recognize you across different channels and platforms. Anonymized data about you collected by our partners may be transferred outside of the country from which it was originally collected.
If you desire to opt out of de-identified (i.e. anonymous) data sharing, please see the “Third-Party Use of Personal Information” section above.
Understanding the Scope of Your Opt-Out
Finally, a disclaimer. Opting out of anonymized third party data sharing only affects what each individual site does with your information. ThePeacefulMom.com does not and cannot control how the services we use on this Website use your information, for example, and so you will need to contact them – or any other relevant third party – to ensure that they too are aware of your decision to opt in or out under the CCPA, if you wish to do so.
