How Information Is Used

The information we collected is used is the following ways:

  • To communicate any new products, newsletters, or free downloads via email (only if you sign-up – with the option of opting out at any time)

Information Used By Third-Parties

The Mother Runners uses three third-party service providers, which allow me to personalize my website for its readers and offer a wide variety of services. The information collected through third-parties is never shared or used in a manner outside their services.

Mail Chimp – I use Mail Chimp to create and deliver emails to you. Your email address is stored through the Mail Chimp account when you sign up to receive the newsletter or any free downloads (with the option to opt out at any time). Your name or any further information is not recorded. Please refer to Mail Chimp’s privacy policy for further information.

Google Analytics – I use Google Analytics with my site to provide information regarding the pages visited by my users, the length of time spent on my site, and the referring websites. No personal information is stored with Google Analytics.

Woo Commerce – I use Woo Commerce to sell my products. When you purchase a product through my site, your email address and purchase information are stored in Woo Commerce. This information is only used for further communication regarding the product you purchased.

I will never distribute or reveal your information without your consent unless required by law.

Information Visible to All

If you comment using a social media or personal profile, it may be visible to all of my readers. Your profile picture, name, and/or link to your site may be available to those who see your comment. I will never distribute this information.


The Mother Runners uses cookies to ensure you are not repeatedly shown the same pop-ups. Cookies are used by some of the third-party servers, such as Google Analytics as well.

You may prevent the use of cookies at any time by denying the setting in your browser, and/or deleting them in your history. If you choose to deny cookie access in your browser, some portions of this website may not function as well or be available for you.

Display Ads

Runnin’ for Sweets uses third-party advertising to provide advertisements for you when you visit our site. These advertisers may use cookies in the manner stated above. Please check out if you would like to learn about opting out of this type of data collection.

Affiliate Program Participation

The Mother Runners promotes some affiliate marketing, primarily Amazon, on my site. This is done by embedding tracking links into my content and images in some articles/pages on our site. If you click my affiliate links, a cookie will be placed in your browser in order to track purchases that serve towards our commission.


You have the option of subscribing to my newsletter. When you subscribe, I collect your email address for the purpose of sending regular newsletters. The newsletters, sent through Mail Chimp, contain tracking elements that allow me to tell whether or not you have opened our email or clicked on any links. This allows me to determine what information is most helpful, and further personalize my newsletters. This information is never shared.

My emails always have an unsubscribe option. At any time, you may subscribe from my mailing list, removing your email address from our system.

Free Downloads

You may choose to download any of my training plans or fitness PDFs. When you download an item, your email address is added to our server in Mail Chimp or Woo Commerce. Your name or any other personal information is never recorded. You have the option to opt-out of any free download email by unsubscribing at the bottom of the email.

Mediavine Programmatic Advertising (Ver 1.1)

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 All About 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.

If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices to opt-in or opt-out of this data collection, please visit National Advertising Initiative opt out page. You may also visit Digital Advertising Alliance website and Network Advertising Initiative website to learn more information about interest-based advertising. You may download the AppChoices app at Digital Advertising Alliance’s AppChoices app to opt out in connection with mobile apps, or use the platform controls on your mobile device to opt out.
