Cloth Nappy Tree Forum - Privacy policy

The Cloth Nappy Tree team have created this privacy statement in order to show our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this web site:

Information Automatically Collected

We use your IP address to help diagnose server problems and to facilitate administration of Cloth Nappy Tree. Your IP address is not displayed anywhere on the website. An IP address may be used to prevent access to the website if it becomes neccessary to ban a member and stop them from re-registering with another alias. Your IP address is not disclosed to any other parties, unless required by law.


Cloth Nappy Tree uses cookies to maintain a record of user login information (such as username) across page sessions. This is so that you do not have to enter a username and password every time you access a new page. These cookies also maintain a record of the posts you have viewed in order to make your browsing of this site easier when you use the "Go to first unread post" feature. No data from cookies is ever referenced by us or passed on to a third party.

External Cookies

At Cloth Nappy Tree we try very hard to minimise your exposure to tracking practiced by multinational advertising networks such as for example Facebook who's "Like me" and other buttons/widgets can be used to track your behaviour on other websites. We believe that this type of behaviour compromises your right to privacy. Privacy is a fundamental human right recognized in the UN Declaration of Human Rights, the International Convenant on Civil and Political Rights and in many other international and regional treaties. That's why we won't publish any "Like me" buttons, external advertisements or indeed any script hosted by another site on this one. There is one exception which is our Google search page. We keep it because we think it is useful and the cookie set by Google is limited to just that one page. You should contact Google for further information about their privacy policy regarding this page and not use it if you are at all concerned about their privacy practices. You can read their privacy policy here.

Registration Forms and Contact information

Cloth Nappy Tree registration forms require users to supply us with contact information such as an e-mail address.

Contact information from the registration form is used to confirm your registration details, send you notifications to your subscriptions and password retrieval should you forget yours. They are also used to prevent banned users and spammers from re-registering with similar identifiers or information.

Unique identifiers such as a username are collected and stored by Cloth Nappy Tree to verify the member's identity, for use as account id and to allow members access to services provided by Cloth Nappy Tree.

Any other information required by Cloth Nappy Tree during the registration process is either mandatory or optional at the discretion of “Cloth Nappy Tree”. In all cases, you have the option of what personal profile information is publicly displayed and the ability to remove or alter any of it permanently and immediately at any time.
