1. The information we collect
Our key aim in collecting the information that you provide is to generate a record of your life.
We collect information that is provided by you when using our services; including when you sign up for a Loggacy account, create a post or a biography entry (including interests, hobbies and other information provided by you), upload a photo and connect with other users (including adding and tagging).
We also collect information provided by other users about you if you are tagged in another users post. You will be notified when you are tagged in another users post and will be able to determine whether or not this post appears on your timeline, and therefore whether other users can view the post in question on your MyLife page.
We will also collect information about the users that you are connected with and how you interact with them.
2. What do we do with this information?
We store our data on an external server hosted at Heroku (heroku.com). However, the customer promise found at (heroku.com/policy/promise) states that Loggacy, and not Heroku own all of the data collected. The data is not shared with any third-party companies or advertisers and users have total control over the information uploaded to the site and therefore what information we store about them. The only essential pieces of information that we request in order to sign up is a users name, email address, date of birth and a user determined password.
3. How your information is disclosed?
4. What happens when I delete my account?
When a user confirms that they would like to delete their account, all information about that person and provided by that person is removed from our database. If the user would like to sign up again, they are free to use the same email (as long as nobody else has taken it in the meantime) but they will be required to completely repopulate their Loggacy profile.
5. Access to information
The Data protection Act 1996 gives you the right to access information held about you. An access request must be submitted and may be subject to a fee of £10 to meet the costs we incur in providing you with the information.
6. How to report breach and incident management We take any incidents relating to privacy very seriously, therefore if you wish to report a breach or an incident please direct these to contact page. We shall strive to get back to you within 10 working days however this may not always be possible.
7. Steps we take to prevent harm
Our aim is to provide a network for people to document and then reflect upon memorable moments from their life. We also provide users with the ability to stay connected with friends and family by sharing their moments. It is extremely important for us in providing this service that people both feel safe and remain safe whilst doing so. We appreciate that with a global population exceeding 7 billion people; there are many different thoughts, ideas and memories out there, waiting to be shared. However we have standards that we expect our users to meet and if they fail to do so this may result in the possible deletion of their post and account. Please see our Acceptable Behaviour.
8. Our age limit
Our website is aimed at users over the age of 13. We appreciate that due to the nature of the website some users will wish to start documenting their children’s life events before this. In light of this, it is possible to hold an account for your child and document their life events. They may then take over the account upon reaching the age of 13. However, we feel strongly about the safeguarding of children, thus if we become aware of any account being hosted by a child under the age of 13 we shall take steps to disable the account.
We reserve the right to make any amendments to this policy that we see fit, thus we recommend that you take the time to check this policy from time to time in order to make yourself aware of any changes, as this policy is legally binding upon you.
Thank you for visiting Loggacy.
