Your privacy is important to Lalymom LLC. The policy below outlines how your personal information is collected and how it is used when you use our website.
Founded in 2013 and based in the United States, Lalymom.com is an independently operated blog run by Laura Marschel. This website shares kids crafts, kids activities, recipes and tips for being a healthy parent. Lalymom® is a registered trademark.
How Information is Collected
Here is how your information is collected on Lalymom.com:
- if you subscribe to the newsletter
- if you leave a comment on the blog
- if you purchase a product via the Lalymom store
- through website cookies and log files
- through Google Analytics
If you decide to join the newsletter via any of the many sign up forms located throughout this website, then your email address is required. We require your email address in order to send you the emails and in some instances we require your first name so that my emails to you will include a friendly personalized note.
At the bottom of every email I send, you will find a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, and using the link at the bottom of the email is the simplest, fastest way to do so. If you are having trouble unsubscribing or would like to be removed from the newsletter, then simply send me an email at info @ lalymom.com asking to be removed.
Currently, I send a minimum of one email per week. However, I will occasionally email you about products and other promotions that may be relevant to your interests.
Your email and name are never sold or given away to a third party.
All emails you receive are CAN-SPAM compliant. At the bottom of every email, you will find information on how to contact the sender, as well as information on how to unsubscribe.
Love something you read on my blog? Then leaving a comment is a great way to do that! I personally love hearing your feedback. If you choose to leave a comment on a blog post, then please be aware that the comment is then public and visible to anyone who reads the comment section. Your email address is never shared or disclosed, but your name and comment will be visible to others.
It is highly recommended that you avoid leaving detailed personal information in your comments.
I reserve the right to remove comments deemed as inappropriate, threatening, profane, or spammy without notice. My website uses a comment moderation system that requires approval of all comments before they are published.
Products in the Lalymom are sold via Woo Commerce. Your name, email address, and country are required during the checkout process. This information is required in order to send you the purchased product and to determine whether or not the EU VAT tax should be applied to your purchase.
The details you enter are stored by the third party applications. All payments are made through PayPal, which does not store your financial information once the transaction has been processed, unless you have an account and have requested that they do so.
I also sell products via affiliate programs. Each program collects and retains their own data. I do not have access to the personal information that is collected by these affiliate programs. It is best to read their individual privacy policies for more information on how your data is collected and used.

Lalymom uses Google Analytics to track website performance and user behavior. It provides information on pageviews, referral sources, and other valuable information that helps me adapt the content I write for this website. Google Analytics does capture anonymous data about location, age, gender, and interests, but I have no way to connect that information and specifically identify you. Google Analytics may also capture your IP address as you make your way around this website. User and event data is retained for 26 months and then is automatically deleted. You can read more about that here.
