Privacy Policy

MaidenName.com is committed to protecting the privacy of our members’ personal information.

When you visit our website we do not collect any personal information about you which you haven’t willingly provided to us. Once you decided to complete a form on our website you will be asked questions which we need to respond to your request and/or to effectively utilize our services.

If you choose not to provide this information, however, the services we can offer you may be limited. We use this information solely as necessary to respond to requests. Our website automatically logs visitors’ IP addresses and records information such as confirmation email messages sent, opened or delivered and may also record information to help prevent misuse of the system.

Information and content submitted to bulletin boards and message boards and other public forums on Maidenname.com are visible by the Maiden Name community. Do exercise care in deciding what information and content you wish to disclose.

Consent

Our belief is that our visitors own their personal information. We provide to our registrants the ability to opt-in and opt-out of our website.

Disclosure

We do not willfully share the personally-identifiable information collected from our visitors without their consent, the only exception being if we are required to do so by a legal statute, a law enforcement agency, or regulatory authority. This usually occurs only after we receive a court order or subpoena mandating us to release information.

It is possible that an emergency request from a verifiable law enforcement agency may be honored prior to receiving a court order or subpoena. Should this occur, we will make every reasonable effort to notify our registrants as soon as possible if we receive such a request so that our registrants may take action as necessary to ensure that their legal rights are protected.

There may be times when a court order or law may prohibit us from notifying our registrants of an informational request. In these cases, where fraud or criminal activity is involved, we will notify our registrant at the earliest possible time permissible under the law.

We respect your rights to not receive regular email from us; however, in some cases we may need to send administrative emails to our registrants to alert them of issues that may impact our service.

We reserve the right to change our privacy policy at any time. Should that occur, we will make sure that the privacy policy link on the website is up to date.
