Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At FamilyLeaf we have a few fundamental principles when it comes to your security and ease of mind when sharing with your family:

  • We only ask you for personal information so you can stay up to date with your family. No information is shared at all across groups, or used in any other way than displaying to those in your private family network.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone else except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • In our products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Sports and Things, Inc. (“FamilyLeaf”) operates It is FamilyLeaf’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, FamilyLeaf 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. FamilyLeaf’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how FamilyLeaf’s visitors use its website. From time to time, FamilyLeaf may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

FamilyLeaf also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users. But it will not be used for any purposes other than tracking errors and fixing bugs.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to FamilyLeaf’s websites choose to interact with FamilyLeaf in ways that require FamilyLeaf to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that FamilyLeaf gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a profile to provide an email address. FamilyLeaf does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

FamilyLeaf may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. FamilyLeaf may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, FamilyLeaf does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

FamilyLeaf discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on FamilyLeaf’s behalf or to provide services available at FamilyLeaf’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using FamilyLeaf’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. FamilyLeaf will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, FamilyLeaf discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when FamilyLeaf believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of FamilyLeaf, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an FamilyLeaf website and have supplied your email address, FamilyLeaf may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with FamilyLeaf and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. FamilyLeaf takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
