Information That We Receive About You:
Epilogger receives and stores various types of information about you including:
§ Registration information
Your registration information is information you are required to provide in order to use certain aspects of our Service. When you sign up for Epilogger, you are required to provide your name, email address, birthday, and timezone information. Your birthday is used to ensure you meet our minimum age requirements and to show you age-appropriate content. Your name, email address, and timezone information are used to allow you to set up a user account and profile that can be used to interact with others through the Service. Your registration information is not shared with anyone but Epilogger.
§ Profile information
Upon registering for the Service, an Epilogger profile is created for you, which sets out the information you provided upon registration (your name, email address, birthday, and timezone information) and allows you to upload a photo. This profile, including your photo, is personal to you and is not shared with anyone but Epilogger.
§ Information you choose to share
As a user who has registered for our Service, you have the option of granting Epilogger access to your account with certain third party social media and networking sites (“TPSM”), including but not limited to Facebook and Twitter, to allow you to share with Epilogger information of your choice that has previously been uploaded on those TPSMs.
By granting Epilogger access to a TPSM and by choosing content from that TPSM to upload to Epilogger, you understand that Epilogger will access, render and store the chosen content, whether or not such content consists of or contains Personal Information, so that it is available and viewable through the Service. Epilogger will ask you to choose whether or not to publicly share this TPSM information on the Service before Epilogger accesses your TPSM content. When you consent to publicly sharing your TPSM content on the Service, you understand that your TPSM content will be shared publicly.
Epilogger is an aggregator of user generated content that operates through the voluntary sharing of information. By uploading content to Epilogger from a TPSM or otherwise, you acknowledge that any such content becomes publicly available information. This means that anyone, including people not registered with Epilogger, will be able to see it. You should be aware that persons having access to this content through our site may use it or disclose it to other individuals or entities without our control and without your knowledge. We therefore urge you to think carefully before you upload any content that you may deem private.
By uploading content to Epilogger, you grant Epilogger a worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, copy, distribute, process, adapt, modify, publish, and transmit such uploaded content in any and all media or distribution methods, even where it contains, consists of, or includes content covered by intellectual property rights. By providing Epilogger with uploaded content, you grant Epilogger a right to sublicense and allow Epilogger to distribute such uploaded content to other companies, organizations or persons who partner with Epilogger for the syndication, consolidation, broadcast, distribution or publication of such uploaded content.
§ Information collected automatically
When you use the Service, Epilogger automatically collects information on how you use it. Whether you use Epilogger as a registered user or as a non-registered user who is browsing Epilogger, our servers automatically record information that your browser sends whenever you visit a website (“Log Information”). Log Information may include information such as your computer’s IP address, browser type, or previously visited webpages, access times and dates, and other statistics. This information is collected to monitor and analyze use of the Service and for technical administration purposes, to increase Epilogger’s functionality and user-friendliness, and to better tailor our Service to our users’ needs. We do not use Log Information in association with personally identifiable information. Log Information is only collected in aggregate, anonymized form. We may provide aggregate, non-personally identifiable information to advertisers or potential advertisers, so that they may understand how people use our Service.
Disclosure to Third Parties:
§ Where required or permitted by law
The type of information we are legally required to disclose may relate to criminal investigations. In some instances, such as a legal proceeding or court order, we may be required to disclose your Personal Information to authorities. Only the information specifically requested is disclosed and we take precautions to satisfy ourselves that the authorities that are making the disclosure request have legitimate grounds to do so.
Your Personal Information may also be disclosed in situations where we are legally permitted to do so, such as in the course of employing reasonable and legal methods to enforce your rights or to investigate suspicion of unlawful activities. We may release certain Personal Information when we believe that such release is reasonably necessary to protect the rights, property and safety of ourselves and others.
§ In the context of a business transfer, bankruptcy or transaction
§ Where we employ a third party service provider
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Service, to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform website-related services, such as maintenance services, database management, and web analytics, or to assist us in analyzing how our Service is used. These third parties may have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf. In such instances, Epilogger will use contractual or other means to ensure such third parties provide a comparable level of protection over your Personal Information while it is in their control.
§ Where information is anonymized
We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-Personal Information, such as the content of your public uploads to Epilogger.
Except as specifically provided for in this Policy, we do not disclose any Personal Information to third parties.
If you are a registered user, we will use your email address to contact you with Epilogger newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications or email Epilogger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Epilogger accounts are protected by a password for your privacy and security. We recommend that you select your password carefully and limit access to your computer and browser (e.g. sign off after each use) to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information.
Epilogger endeavours to safeguard user information through the employment of reasonable physical, technological, and administrative security measures. However, no method of transmission of information over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Epilogger cannot guarantee the security of user information.
Changing, Deactivating or Deleting Your Information:
If you are a registered user, you can access, review, update, and correct the Personal Information in your account by editing your profile on the Epilogger website at http://www.epilogger.com. Because of the way we maintain Epilogger, a copy of the unrevised information may remain on backup media for a period of ninety (90) days prior to being deleted from our servers.
Should you ever decide to stop using your Epilogger account, you have the option to either deactivate your account or delete it.
Deactivation puts your account on hold and makes your profile invisible to other users, without removing any of the content you have chosen to publicly share on the Service. Deactivating your account is a way for you to put your Epilogger account and activity on hold, with the option of reactivating your account in the future and ensuring you have not lost any of the content you have previously shared and settings that you have selected. Should you ever decide to deactivate your Epilogger account, you may do so by contacting Epilogger at email@example.com or by clicking on the “deactivate account” link on your profile page.
Deleting your account permanently removes your account information from Epilogger. Should you wish to permanently delete your account, please log in to your account and submit your request here. You will have the option, upon deleting your account, of deleting your account information and the content you have chosen to share publicly on the Service. Upon requesting that your account be deleted, Epilogger will begin the process of account deletion. Your account will first be deactivated and will no longer be viewable on Epilogger’s site. For up to thirty (30) days, it is still possible to restore your account if deletion was accidentally or wrongfully requested. After thirty (30) days, we begin the process of deleting your account from our systems. Deletion may not be immediate, and residual copies of your account may remain on our backup files for a period of up to ninety (90) days. Please note that Epilogger has no control over content indexed on other websites or search engines, or content that has been publicly shared by you and copied, distributed, re-posted, published or otherwise transmitted by other users.
Our Policy Toward Children:
If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with Personal Information, he or she should contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Governing Law and Dispute Resolution:
Users may reside outside of Canada and Epilogger may perform activities outside of Canada through third parties. As a result, Personal Information may be stored, processed, or accessed in other countries and may be subject to the laws of those countries. In particular, information may be disclosed in response to valid demands or requests from government authorities, courts, or law enforcement in these countries. For example, information that is processed, used, stored or accessed in the United States may be subject to the Patriot Act and applicable anti-terrorism legislation, together with other legislation applicable within the United States.
