What personal information about customers does familyarchives.com gather?
Information you give us: Like many other web sites, we actively collect information from our visitors both through specific areas on our web site and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email. Some of the information that you submit during the registration process may be personally identifiable (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your name, address, phone number, email address, etc.). We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or give us in any other way such as by phone, fax and mail. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests and communicating with you.

Other information: Like most web site operators, we track certain information about the use of our web site. This information includes pages viewed and IP addresses of computers used to access familyarchives.com which may be used to perform aggregate data analysis. This information may help us improve our web site by helping us understand what areas of our web site are most popular, which require improvement and what technologies are being used by our visitors. In addition, when you use our web site, we may store some information on your computer in the form of a cookie or similar file. We may use cookies to allow us to tailor the site to better match your interests and preferences. Most internet browsers enable you to erase cookies from your computer, block cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. We do not collect personally identifiable information automatically, but we may tie information collected automatically to your previously submitted personally identifiable information.

Specific features of familyarchives.com request information about people other than you. Such information is collected to allow you to refer others to our site or to send information from our site to others. This information is used solely for providing the inherent functionality of such a feature and will not be used for any other purposes or shared with third parties unless such information is subject to an alternative privacy policy that is noted on the collecting page.

We do not have control over the privacy policies applied by any other party to which you may disclose information. Third-party sites that are linked to from our web site are not under our control and we are not responsible for their content or privacy policies.

Does familyarchives.com share the information it receives?
Some of our advertisers may display ads on our web site that solicit, or contain technology to collect, information about our users. This information is collected by and used by such advertisers and is outside our control.

We will have no liability for disclosure of information due to errors in transmission or the unauthorized intervention of third parties. Although we do not currently rent, sell or otherwise share your information with third parties for purposes unrelated to this site, we may do so in the future.
How secure is information about me?

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. If you have access to password-protected features, never share your password, notify us promptly if you believe your password security has been breached, and remember to log off our web site before you leave your computer. We further urge you to be careful about posting personal information in public areas of our web site. When you provide information in these areas you do so at your own risk. The information you share may be viewed by any user of our web site.
