The website however strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal identifiable information but we cannot guarantee its absolute security. All registered accounts have an administrative username and password which is not to be given or disclosed to anyone. The website has no liability in the event of any misuse or loss caused to you or your personal details as a result of you giving or disclosing your password to anyone. Further, you understand that in the event you choose not to password protect your site, your site is open to the public without any protection and your personal photo, video, and other files, as collected online shall be classified as ‘unclassified information’ with no protection or security measures. While we try to protect your information we cannot and do not offer any absolute guarantee. We will, however, agree to inform you if we learn the security of this site is compromised.
We are committed to protect your personally identifiable information. All your personally identifiable information is safeguarded by industry standard firewall and password protection systems, which protect the same from any kind of loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. In order to achieve this high level of security standards, the privacy and security policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced if necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by you on-line.
When you sign up for an account, you will set up an administrative username and password. This is private information that should not be given out to anyone.
You may then choose a name for your family website address (for example, www.HoldMyMemories.com/familyname). This family website may be password protected. If you choose to password protect your family website, only those that have your password can view your site. If you choose NOT to password protect your site, anyone with your website address may view your site.
Additionally, each individual file can be made either “Pubic” or “Private”. If a file is “public”, anyone that has access to your site can view those files. If the file is “private”, only you as administrator of the account can view those files (when you are logged in as the administrator). Your files default to “Public”, but may be made “Private” by going to: Settings (or “manage my site”)>>Upload Files then navigating to the file(s) you want to make private, right clicking on the file(s) and choosing “set permissions”. There may also be other areas of the site in which the administrator of the site (you) can choose to make a file private.
Posting on Social Networking and other sites: If your family website is password protected, you must be logged in as the administrator of your account to share your pages (via the “Share This Page” link at the top of the page), or to share your site with any of a number of social networking sites. However if your family site is “public”, anyone who has access to your website address may share your pages through the “Share This Page” link at the top of the page, or with any of a number of social networking accounts located at the bottom of the page.
