Welcome to “The Stories Between” (the “Website”).  By accessing or using our Website, or the mobile version of our Website, you (“You” or the “User”) signify that you have read, understand, and agree to be bound by this “Privacy Policy,” whether or not you are registered as a member.


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:

  1. First and last name(s);
  2. Gender, age, birthday, or similar personal information;
  3. Location (city, state);
  4. Mobile phone number;
  5. Email address; and
  6. 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.

The Stories Between may (i) use your email address to conduct market research for the Company’s internal use only; and/or (ii) use your email address to market The Stories Between to you (e.g., new features and applications, announcements, opportunities of interest).  The Stories Between may contract with a third party to conduct such research and marketing; provided that such third party will be fully bound by an obligation of confidentiality to The Stories Between, and may not use any personally-identifiable information provided by The Stories Between other than as expressly instructed by the Company and in strict compliance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

This includes links that are placed there by the Company (such as in advertisements), as well as by other Users.  Please be aware that The Stories Bewteen is not responsible for the privacy practices of any other website. We encourage all visitors to The Stories Between Website to be aware of when they leave our website, and to read the privacy policies of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy policy applies solely to information collected by The Stories Between through its own Website.

Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user's computer for record-keeping purposes. We use cookies on The Stories Between website. However, we do not and will not use cookies to collect private information from any User or other visitor to the Website which they did not intentionally submit to us other than as stated in this Privacy Policy. We use both "session ID cookies" and "persistent cookies."  We use session ID cookies to make it easier for you to navigate our site. A session ID cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. Note also that Users may optionally use a cookie to remember their email in order to automatically log in to our Website. You can remove persistent cookies by following directions provided in your Internet browser's "help" file; however, please note that, if you reject cookies or disable cookies in your web browser, you may not be able to use The Stories Between Website.  This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by The Stories Between only, and does not cover the use of cookies by any other party.

Correcting/Updating or Removing Information


Changes in Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to change, modify, add, or delete portions of this privacy policy.  If we change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our Website so that Users and other visitors to the Website are always aware of the information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it to third parties.  If we are going to use Users' or others’ personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection, we will notify those Users and others via email or by placing a prominent notice on our website.

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.

Email Choice/Opt-Out

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.

Third Party Advertising

The ads appearing on this Website are delivered to Users and visitors to the Website by our advertising partners. Our web advertising partners may use cookies. Doing this allows the ad network to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, ad networks may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you.  We do not have access to or control over the cookies that may be placed on the computer of any User or visitor to the Website by the third-party ad servers or ad networks.
