We believe that privacy is essential. Even on the Internet.
Without the trust of our members (and maybe yours?) Famicity would not exist. The founders of Famicity and their team are hosting their most valuable data: the ones we do not want to be accessible to unknown people. That is why we respect very strict rules.
Your data does not belong to us.
Famicity only stores your data, we do not claim them. Each published story, each shared album, every comment submitted remain your property.
At any time, you can choose to edit or delete them at your convenience.
Your data are not sold.
Famicity will adopt a business model without advertising. Indeed, we want to provide a real service to our members. If the basic service remains free for all, premium features will be added for those who want a more complete legacy center or simply for those who would like to help us to continue this extraordinary human adventure.
Our Databases are hosted in Europe and Canada.
To better protect your privacy, Famicity decided to host databases in countries where privacy is a right, not a privileged. This is essential to ensure a global security and complete freedom.
You choose who can see your content.
Each of your publications on Famicity is subject to a very specific permission system that allows you to choose the person who can access your data.
For us it is normal to want to master the scope of information we share. Therefore Famicity would like the people who register on the site comply with a moral contract with other family members and friends around them. The information published on Famicity should not be copied and shared on public social networks (Facebook, Twitter, ...) or other insecure services.
We protect your data.
Famicity was designed as a banking site. The entire site is protected by HTTPS. Your data is encrypted so no undesirable person can access it.
Famicity also has databases that are duplicated to ensure the durability of data. Your share is never kept only on a single server, but 3 or 4 different servers to not take the risk that a material defect causes a deletion of data.
Famicity is much more secure than a personal computer.
