Your privacy is of utmost importance to Sharelife.plus.

To better protect your privacy, Share Life Plus, Inc.

Please see our Terms of Use for additional information applicable to your use of our Website. By using this Website, you expressly consent to our collection, processing, storage, use, transfer, and disclosure of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Policy.

The Information We Collect

You do not have to give us personally identifiable information to access and browse some of the areas of our Website. However, to utilize, participate in, be a recipient of or a subscriber to our Share Life Plus service, you, co-authors, and your recipients may be required to provide us with your personally identifiable information, which is information that, alone or in combination with other information, allows us to identify you, such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, birthday, photos, videos, audio files, recipients, credit card information, financial information, information relating to a support or service issue. If you provide us with your personally identifiable information, you are giving us permission to use that information for the specific purpose for which it is provided and for any other purpose described in this Privacy Policy.

You and your recipients also give information when you enter any content or information about your family history, life stories, memories, knowledge, values, images, videos, audio files, or any sensitive information, collectively called content. Sharelife.plus does not generally review content and we are not liable for any content. However, Sharelife.plus may view your content to ensure compliance with our Terms of Use, to resolve service problems, or to improve the web experience of Sharelife.plus members. You may also provide information and email addresses of your friends and family for use in sharing the content you create, and such friends and family will be able to view personally identifiable information that you allow them to access. When you choose to share the content that you have created with your friends and family, those individuals, should they subscribe to our service, will have the opportunity to share that content with anyone they deem as recipients (and so on). Such sharing of content can occur over multiple recipients and over multiple layers of recipients.  Sharelife.plus is not responsible for your content and is not responsible for who that content is ultimately shared with.  We urge prudence in who you share your content with.

We also may collect, store and use certain non-personally identifiable information we receive when you visit our Website, and we may aggregate data and information provided by or collected from multiple users in a manner that is not personally identifiable to any individual user. All non-personally identifiable information collected by us on our Website and all aggregated/compilations of data we create are the exclusive property of Sharelife.plus.
