We process data for the following purposes:
Registration and Profile Creation
Creating Your Account
We collect the following personal information during the initial site registration process:
|Your First Name (Given Name)||Required|
|Your Family Name||Required|
|Your email address||Required|
We use this data to create the Account Owner Profile. This Account Owner Profile will automatically be created as one of the “Parent” roles for any child profiles created under this account.
Your email address will be used as your login to the Tweekaboo platform.
Creating a “Parent Profile”
When you have registered and provided your contact details (see “Uploading Photos and other content from your Phone” below) you will be able to create and edit your Parent Profile.
In this you will be able to provide information about your parent role (e.g. “Mom”, “Dad”). This is mandatory information at this time. You can also upload a photograph of yourself for your Personal Profile.
Creating “2nd Parent” Login
The Account Holder can invite another person to have a “parent” role in the Tweekaboo account for their partner or another person. This is done by the Account Holder providing certain information to allow us to generate an invitation to the other party.
|Parent 2 First Name (Given Name)||Required|
|Parent 2 Family Name||Required|
|Parent 2 Family Name||Required|
The email address provided here will be used as the user login for the second Parent role holder in your Tweekaboo account.
Creating Family Profile
Tweekabo is built around the idea of a “Family” grouping. Therefore we capture an amount of information which can identify a family group. Apart from the basic “Family Name” (which is a free text label for your Family group) we capture some basic information about where your family entity is located so we can correctly apply relevant Privacy regulations that might apply outside the EU.
We also allow you to upload a “Family Photo”. This can be any image, like a Family Crest or a family group photo. It is an optional item on your family profile and will be visible to other tweekaboo users who you invite to connect with your family for sharing content on the tweekaboo platform (for example, family or friends).
Creating a Child Profile
Tweekaboo’s core mission is to help you record and share memories for and with your children. To that end we allow you to create a profile for each of your children. We capture the minimum necessary information to start creating that profile.
|Child first name||Required|
|Date of Birth||Required|
Related uses we will put this information to would include:
Profile photographs of children will not be shared with people other than the Account Holder (Parent 1) and the second created Parent role.
Inviting Family & Friends
Family and friends can become part of your Tweekaboo network. You do this by inviting them to join via Tweekaboo.com. At a minimum we require their name and an email address to create their basic user profile.
Uploading Photos and other content from your Phone
We provide two mechanisms to allow you to upload photographs and other content from your mobile phone.
iPhone users can use the tweekaboo iPhone app. In order for the application to function, we require you to provide your account login credentials in the application. This will then allow the iPhone app to upload directly to your account based on your unique system generated user ID.
For other scenarios, you must provide the following information
|The email address you would be sending from on your phone||Required|
|Your main mobile phone number||Required|
|A second mobile phone number||Optional|
We use these two pieces of information to ensure that content you email to us from your phone (or phones) is associated with the correct account on our service.
This information is displayed to you in your “Parent Profile” so you can easily edit it and keep it updated.
We will use information provided at registration to generate targeted email marketing messages about activities on the site and various offers and promotions from Tweekaboo or our partners.
Emails may be targeted to
We may make use of the “State/Country” field value associated with the Family Profile to assist in matching email recipients with appropriate messages, activities, and offers.
Recipients will be able to opt-out of these communications by selecting options in their Personal profiles. Every email we send will contain a link that will allow individuals to do this and you will be able to make the changes at any time via your personal profile on Tweekaboo.

Tweekaboo and/or advertisers on this site may make use of Web Bugs for the purposes of tracking your interaction with the site. No personal identifying data will be shared in the course of that tracking. We will make every effort to minimise the use of these web bugs to the minimum necessary.
Log Files and Statistics
We use IP addresses, URI's of requested resources, timestamps and HTTP user-agents to analyse trends, administer the system and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Our website links to other sites, but we shall always try to warn you when this is the case. Please note that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites: make sure you read their privacy statements if you are concerned about the information they are collecting about you. This statement only applies to our website.
We take every precaution to protect your details. When you submit sensitive information via the website, it is secure both on its way to us and once we receive it. For instance, our membership and donation forms encrypt your credit card number using encryption technology called -- 'secure socket layers' or SSL. If you use Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer, you can tell whether a page is secure by checking whether there is a locked padlock or key in the right corner of your browser. The URL of the page you are viewing will also begin with https://.
We also do everything in our power to protect your information once we have received it. Our staff can only access your details if they have a specific job to perform, such as dealing with an account enquiry or taking actions necessary under the Terms and Conditions which govern this site. They also have to keep up to date on our security and privacy practices.
Tweekaboo hosting services are provided an Irish registered company utilising servers which are located in the Republic of Ireland.
We take our responsibilities to protect you from fraud very seriously. To fulfil this obligation, we sometimes may have to supplement the information you give us with information from third party sources – for example, in order to make sure that no-one else is using your credit card. We do not keep this information any longer than we have to.
We recognise that details such as your mobile phone number, address, or email address are bound to change over time. Likewise, we recognise that family units can often encounter difficulties which require information to be amended or deleted.
We provide mechanisms through the website to enable individuals to update their own information. You can also submit a request via email@example.com if you can’t find an option to make the correction you require or if you need to have a bulk update of data done.
When you submit a request to us via firstname.lastname@example.org we will contact you to verify your identity and confirm your authority to make the requested changes. This is done to ensure we are meeting our obligations under the Data Protection Acts 1988 and 2003 to keep data safe and secure and is not intended to cause offence.
You will always be able to opt out of having your information used for any purpose other than that specifically related to the page where we ask for it. Any mailing lists which you may sign up for through this site will allow you to opt-out of contact.
Likewise, other than communications to the Account Holder or their nominated representative which are necessary for the operation of the site in accordance with our terms and conditions, any member of Tweekaboo.com can opt-out of communications from the site at any time.
Disclosure of Data
Under normal circumstances, Tweekaboo will not make any disclosure of data you provide to any 3rd party. However we will do so:
Right of Access
The Data Protection Acts grant a Right of Access to Personal Data to individuals.
To enquire about Processing
To enquire if we are processing data about you, please send an email to email@example.com with the subject line: “Are you processing data about me?”. You will need to provide some personally identifying information in that email to enable us to conduct enquiries in our database. You may be contacted by a representative of Tweekaboo.com to discuss your request and verify your data.
To request a copy of Personal Data
To request a copy of data which we hold about you please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “I would like a copy of the data you hold about me”. You will need to provide personally identifying information to enable us to process your request. You will be contacted by a representative of Tweekaboo to confirm your identity.
We may decline to process your request if we are not satisfied that we can confirm your identity sufficiently to avoid the risk of disclosing data in error. Data can only be disclosed to the individual to whom the data relates. As a result personally identifying data relating to other people (even if they are family members) will be redacted from copies of data we provide to you where it is reasonable and possible to do so.
We will charge the statutory fee of €6.35 for each request for a copy of data. Payment must be made in advance of the data being provided to you.
To request that data be deleted, corrected, blocked from processing, or destroyed
To request that data be deleted, blocked, corrected or destroyed you should send an email to email@example.com with the specific request in the subject line (i.e. “Please delete data about me from Tweekaboo”). You must provide enough information in your request for us to be able to identify you.
You will be contacted by a member of the Tweekaboo support team to discuss the nature of your request and confirm the action which you wish to have taken on your behalf.
You can email your feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
