Collection of Information. When you create an account LDS directly or through the website FamilySearch, register an account on one of our sites, add profile information, or take similar action of other, we may collect or obtain from you or membership records (if applicable) information including, but not limited to, your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, photo, contact or profile preferences, and Church unit information.
We also may collect information that Internet device or web browser you submit whenever you visit one of our websites, including Internet Protocol address.
Use of Personal Information. We may use the personal information you provide to (a) allow us to contact you, (b) meet the requests you have made, (c) seek feedback your voluntary on website features or content, or (d) help fulfill our mission.
We may also use your personal information for internal purposes, including auditing, data analysis, system troubleshooting, and research.
In addition, we may use both the personal information that you provide and the information you submit a web browser (see section 10 below) to detect users who seem to cause damage to our website or to personalize the user experience on our site.
If you are going to use the information for any purpose other than those described above, we will specifically inform you and obtain your consent, if legally required.
From time to time, we can also tell you about the option to get out of using or opt to use certain features.
Content Delivery. At several of our sites you can provide your own content and comments in the selected area. Some of shipping your privacy meant to be and can not be viewed by others (for example, personal records online, journal, or similar features). However, other content delivery may be intended generally available and can be viewed by others (for example, written testimonials or online comments in selected areas of our site).
In the case where the contents of your shipment will be made generally available or distributed to any other third party, we will ask for your consent statement either when you create a separate profile (eg, mormon.org or familysearch.org) or when you upload it ( for example, when you upload the video clips or genealogy information). We recommend you to use warning when providing content intended to be viewed in general and that you avoid doing disclosure of information that could cause harm or injury, or risk of harm or injury, to yourself or others.
All types of content delivery you provide will be stored in our systems or the systems of our affiliates or third parties (as defined in section 7A below). Although the industry standard used to secure your delivery of the access, disclosure, or unauthorized modification (as defined in section 8 below), we can not guarantee complete privacy and we can, in some instances, choose or are legally required to disclose such information to third parties as set forth in section 7 of this policy.
Although we are not obligated to monitor the contents of your submission, we have the right to do so with our own discretion. We also have the right to block or remove any content that we deem inappropriate, obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, violent, harassing, defamatory, libelous, offensive, illegal, threatening or otherwise inappropriate, regardless of whether it was intended to be private or public. Because we do not review all content submitted through every feature on every site, we can not guarantee that we will be able to take protective measures in the event you provide content disclosing information about a person who becomes a victim of harm or abuse or at risk of becoming a victim of danger or abuse.
As we are aware of the content that we deem to be offensive or may jeopardize the privacy of your personal or confidential information or property of others, we will make a good-faith effort to block or remove such content.
