Last Revised: March 27, 2014
About the Information We Collect
We take every precaution to protect the information of our Users. We use industry standard measures to protect all information that is stored on our servers and within our database.
Each User of the Website may create a member profile (i.e., an account) which contains personal information that you choose to include, such as:
- First and last name(s);
- Gender, age, birthday, or similar personal information;
- Location (city, state);
- Mobile phone number;
- Email address; and
- Photos, videos, postings, or other shared content uploaded by you, to the extent such
content contains personal information.
The Stories Between may use information such as name and email address to identify users, send notifications relating to the Website and its services, and conduct market research and marketing. You should also be aware that you may reveal other personal information while communicating on or through the Website, such as while participating in discussions or chat groups, and/or posting information on the Website’s pages. This information, in turn, may be viewed by other Users or visitors to the Website.
Information Not Directly Submitted to The Stories Between
We may also collect some information that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address.
Use of Information Obtained
Except where a User might choose to include his/her full name in his/her profile, a User’s email address and full name will only be used in the following circumstances:
When you are inviting friends or contacts to create a profile or user account through the Website;
When we send notifications to a User relating to his/her use of the Website or its services; and
If a User so chooses, when we send regular notifications, weekly updates, or other news regarding the Website or its related services.
Except as set forth above, a User's email address will never be shared with or displayed to any other person.
We may use information relating to each User’s server information, IP address, and browser-type.
Sharing Information this Website Gathers/Tracks
Except as explained herein, or where you are expressly informed otherwise, we do not sell, rent, share, trade or give away any of your personal information unless required by law or for the protection of your account.
However, The Stories Between may share profile information and aggregate usage information in a non-personally identifiable manner with advertisers and other third parties in order to present more targeted advertising, products and services; provided that, in such situations, we will never disclose information that would personally identify you.
Correcting/Updating or Removing Information
YOU CAN ALWAYS CHANGE THE PERSONAL INFORMATION YOU HAVE SUBMITTED TO THE STORIES BETWEEN WEBSITE, INCLUDING THE INFORMATION INCLUDED IN YOUR PROFILE, BY CLICKING THE "EDIT" LINK ON YOUR SETTINGS PAGE.
Invite a Friend
If a User elects to use our "Invite" feature to invite a friend to create a profile through the Website, we will ask the User for that friend’s email address. We will automatically send the friend an email inviting them to join the Website. We store this email address for the purpose of: (1) automatically connecting the new User to your profile (to the extent this feature is available or becomes available); (ii) sending reminders of the invitation; and (iii) sending emails on recent updates on the Website or its services. We will never sell these email addresses or use them to send any other communication besides invitations, invitation reminders, and general updates about the Website and its services. Any person who receives an invitation may request to be removed from our contact list and/or database by using the link contained in the email, or contacting us directly at the following email address: _______________.
The account of every User is password-protected. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Website and for any activities or actions under your password. We encourage you to use "strong" passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. We cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
Users who no longer wish to receive our email updates or other email notifications may opt-out of receiving these communications by following the instructions contained in the applicable email, or by logging in and changing their settings in the "Account Settings" section of the Website.
