FamilyTime™ Statement of Privacy
What is our mission?
FamilyTime's mission is to help you save time and money by helping you organize your household activities.
We do this by providing useful planning tools and by getting the best of web offers and practical content for
your family. We do the surfing, so you save time to be with your family. To do this well, we become a
trusted partner to you. We will not sell or give individual data about you to third parties.
Is there a cost?
The FamilyTime Site is offered as a free service. It is paid for by advertisers and sponsors who
want you to know about their products and services. We will use certain registration and tracking
data, as outlined below, to make your experience using FamilyTime more enjoyable and more valuable
to you by screening certain ads and offers.
What happens to your stored information?
One key powerful feature of the FamilyTime Site is that you can store information about your family
in a central location on the Internet. This gives you and your family the convenience and power of
accessing, for example, a family calendar and updating it from any PC on the Internet when you are
at work, at school, or travelling.
We make every reasonable effort to safeguard that data for you and to assure that it will be there
when you need it. All of the information that you put into any FamilyTime application (calendar,
recipes file cabinet, etc.) about your family is your own. The information is backed up on our
servers to help protect against loss, and it is NOT made available by us to any third party in
any form. You can remove the information at any time by deleting it or canceling your registration
with us. All FamilyTime services are furnished AS IS, subject to the Limitations of Liability
and EXCLUSION OF WARRANTIES set forth in our Terms and Conditions of Use.
Please review those Terms and Conditions for further details.
Do we use the information that you store in the FamilyTime program?
As stated above, the areas provided to store personal data, are just that - storage areas - and
are NOT used in any way to direct ads or offers to you. Corporate Sponsorships are offered for
FamilyTime sections based on the general subject area of the section, not on your personal information
held within any section. None of the individual data in any of these sections is given or sold
to a third party by FamilyTime.
Data that you generate in collecting recipes, creating menus, and creating shopping lists is
aggregated to help us and our sponsors understand what foods, menus, and products are most
popular. The data is never used in a manner that can be traced to an identified individual.
What information does the FamilyTime Site need at registration?
We require one name and email address for each family at the time of registration. In addition,
we require zip code to provide you with relevant local offers. We will email you to let you
know about new features or other offers of interest from FamilyTime, or to address customer
needs and requests. Other family members can use the FamilyTime site without registering as
long as they have access to the family password. Other data collected at registration is
used to direct relevant ads and information to you as part of using FamilyTime.
