We protect your personal information and content and will only provide it to third parties: (1) with your consent; (2) where it is necessary to carry out your instructions; (3) as reasonably necessary in order to provide our features and functionality to you; (4) when we reasonably believe it is required by law, subpoena or other legal process; or (5) as necessary to enforce our User Agreement or protect the rights, property, or safety of Trusted Sharing, our Members and Visitors, and the public.
We will only share information or content that you designate as private with individuals or groups that you have authorized to have access to that information. Unless you specify otherwise, by default the following types of your information are regarded as private: your email addresses and other contact information, and email addresses and contact information that you have provided for your contacts (for example, when inviting them to join your Trusted Sharing conversations and groups), your Trusted Sharing password, passwords for any of your external platforms, and the strengths of interest and trust that you have designated for your contacts.
Like most website operators, Trusted Sharing collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Trusted Sharing’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Trusted Sharing’s visitors use the website. From time to time, Trusted Sharing may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Trusted Sharing also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Trusted Sharing does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Trusted Sharing will not sell, rent, or otherwise share any information you share with us. Access to your content and personally identifiable information is controlled internally. We will never view your private content without your consent. Trusted Sharing takes reasonable steps and uses industry standards to protect your content from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
From time to time, Trusted Sharing team members may access your email address to send you information about the site or ask for feedback, either personally or through an email provider. If you do not wish to receive these emails please respond with a request to be taken off the contact list, or unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email, or by changing your subscription settings.
Data backup, archiving services and disaster recovery are also managed automatically and seamlessly. The software and data is automatically backed up as part of the deployment process on secure, access controlled, and redundant storage. We use these backups to deploy the Trusted Sharing software and data across the platform and automatically bring the application back online in the event of an outage.
Trusted Sharing does not have scheduled outage windows. We may occasionally need to schedule outages and these would be performed at low-use times. Such outages typically last from 5 to 30 minutes.
We will always maintain the overriding principle that we will not sell or rent any private information you share with us without your authorization. However, we may change other aspects of this policy. Any amended policy is effective upon posting to this website, and we will tell you about these changes via email or through the site.
