This Privacy Policy should be read in conjunction with the Terms of Use located on SurvivingMyLife's website. Continued use of our website is acceptance of both this privacy policy and the terms of use.

SurvivingMyLife hereby disclaims any representations and/or warranties it makes in this Privacy Policy that such policy satisfies the requirements or applicable laws of users accessing and using the website from outside the United States of America.

Cookies

"Cookies" are small files or records that are placed on your computer's hard drive to distinguish you from other visitors to our website. The use of cookies is a standard practice among websites to collect or track information about your activities while using our website.

    i. How it works. A cookie may enable the website owner to track how a visitor navigates through its website and the areas in which they show interest. This is similar to a traffic report: it tracks trends and behaviors, but does not identify individuals. Information gathered may include date and time of visits, pages viewed, time spent at the site, and the website visited just before and just after a visit to our website. ii. Types. Cookies can be set to expire: (1) on a specified date; (2) after a specific period of time; (3) when a transaction has been completed; or (4) when a user turns off his/her internet browser. A cookie that is erased from memory when a visitor's internet browser closes is called a "session" cookie. Cookies that expire based on a time set by the Web server are called "persistent" cookies. iii. Our Cookies. Our website may use both "session cookies" and "permanent cookies." Most people do not know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit our Website or most websites because browsers are typically set to accept cookies. You can choose to have your browser warn you every time a cookie is being sent to you or you can turn off cookie placements. If you refuse cookies, there may be parts of our website that may not function properly.

Some information may be automatically received and sometimes collected from you when you visit our website, depending on how you connect to it (e.g., mobile phone network v. internet connection). This information may include some or all of the following items: the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, including the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using and the IP address of your Internet Service Provider; the type and version of Internet browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you access our site, the length of your stay and the specific pages, images, video or forms that you access while visiting the site; the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our website, and if applicable, the search engine that referred you and any search strings or phrases that you entered into the search engine to find this site; and demographic information concerning the country of origin of your computer and the language(s) used by it. We use this information to monitor the usage of our website, assess its performance, ensure technological compatibility with your computer, and understand the relative importance of the information provided on our website. We may also use this data to conduct statistical analyses on visitors' usage patterns and other aggregated data.

Other members will be able to share your photos, videos, comments, links and messages with other members on the site. You may have the right to delete these at any time from the website and they will cease to exist for others to share.

SurvivingMyLife reserves the right to collect any and all data that helps create your profile on our website. All the information collected will be used solely to perform the services of the website and in response to valid requests. We will not share your information with any third party entity.

You reserve the right to use your name where you see fit on the public website. We require your legal name when you are signing up but you are not required to use it for your profile name. Your legal name will stay private with SurvivingMyLife Inc and will not be given out to any member of the website.

Your profile picture will be seen by the public. Choose a photo that will be appropriate for the public site. You may choose at any time to change your picture, or take it down.

We strive to ensure that the information (as defined below) you share with us is handled in a safe, secure and responsible manner. We have contracted with service providers who have security measures to help protect against loss, unauthorized access and alteration of the information in our control. We will only disclose such information to employees and authorized service providers who require such information for the purposes described in this policy. The databases of our service providers are protected by physical, technical, and procedural measures that restrict access to authorized persons in accordance with this policy. Although no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed 100% secure, and we cannot ensure against any loss, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, alteration, or destruction of data, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

When you click on links through our website that take you to third-party websites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies. While we support the protection of privacy on the internet, we are not and cannot be responsible for the actions of any third-party websites. We encourage you to read the posted privacy policies of any and every website you visit, whether you are linking from our website or browsing on your own.

Our Privacy Policy is subject to change from time to time at our sole discretion. We suggest that you review the current Privacy Policy regularly. If we adapt any changes to our Privacy Policy, we will send out an email to all of our members alerting them that we have changed terms in our Privacy Policy. Unless we clearly express otherwise, we will use information in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected.
