We have updated our Privacy Policy as of December 8, 2018.


myTimeline Privacy Policy

Welcome to myTimeline™, a service provided by Timeline, Inc. ("myTimeline," "we," "our," or "us").

Your privacy is important to us. This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, store, use, and disclose your information when you use (the “Website”) and all related sites, widgets, tools, apps, data, software, APIs, and other services provided by myTimeline (the “Services”). This Privacy Policy applies to anyone visiting the Website or using the Services (“you,” “your,” or “user”) and also to anyone registering a myTimeline account (a “Member”).

This Privacy Policy explains the following:

  • Our principles with respect to your information and your privacy
  • The information we collect about you & how we use your information
  • How we share your information
  • How we use cookies and similar technology
  • Your choices with respect to your information
  • How to contact us regarding privacy issues

By using the Website or any of the Services, and in particular by registering a myTimeline account, you are consenting to the use of your information in the manner set out in this Privacy Policy. Please take some time to read this Privacy Policy and make sure you are happy with our use and disclosure of your information.

If you do not agree to any of the provisions of this Privacy Policy, you should not use the Website or any of the Services. If you have any questions or concerns, you can contact us at

Please note that this Privacy Policy only applies to the Website and the Services (together, the “Platform”). When using the Platform, you may find links to other websites, apps, and services, or tools that enable you to share information with other websites, apps, and services. myTimeline is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other websites, apps and services and we recommend that you review the privacy policies of each of these websites, apps, or services before connecting your myTimeline account or sharing any personal data.

We may occasionally update this Privacy Policy. When we do so, we will also revise the Effective Date at the top of this page. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will be available here so that myTimeline users and Members are always aware of what information we gather, and how we might use and share that information. Please be sure to check back here from time to time to ensure that you are aware of any changes to this Privacy Policy. Any material changes to this Privacy Policy will be communicated to Members by a notification to their account and/or by posting a notice of the change on the Website.

Our Principles

Our approach to data protection and privacy is built on two simple principles:

  1. Transparency. You should know what information we collect and what we do with that information. If there is anything unclear in this Privacy Policy, please contact us at
  2. Control. You should have control over your information. This Privacy Policy explains how we use and share your information. Members may update or delete private information in their membership profile at any time.
  3. Security. The security of your information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Only For Use By Adults

myTimeline is intended for use by adults. Anyone under the age of 18 is not permitted to use the Platform and must not attempt to register an account or submit any personal information to us. We do not knowingly collect any personal information from any person who is under the age of 18 or allow them to register an account. If it comes to our attention that we have collected personal data from a person under the age of 18, we will delete this information as quickly as possible. Nothing, however, in this policy is intended to prevent a member from submitting personal information for their own child or children. If you have reason to believe that we may have improperly collected any such personal data, please notify us immediately at

You do not need to provide us with any personal information in order to visit the Website or use the Services, prior to becoming a member.

However, if you register a myTimeline account and become a Member, you will provide us with certain information. Portions of this information will be made viewable to other members that you designate, other information will be kept private, while some information will be shared with third parties. myTimeline works with several third party service providers and affiliates that will have access to some of your private information (collectively "Service Providers"). These Service Providers include financial institutions that are responsible for processing membership fees and other charges.

Sharing of Your Information

We will not share your information with any third party, except as described in this Privacy Policy. There are circumstances where we may need to share some of the information we collect about you or which you provide to us; these circumstances are as follows:

  • Service providers: We may use certain reputable third parties to provide us with certain specialized services related to the Platform. These third parties will have access to certain information about you, but only where this is necessary in order for those third parties to provide their services to us. Where we transfer personal data to these third parties, we ask and require these third parties to implement appropriate organizational and technical security measures to protect against unauthorized disclosure of personal data, and only to process personal data in accordance with our instructions and to the extent necessary to provide their services to us.
  • As aggregated data: We may aggregate your personal data with similar data relating to other users of the Platform in order to create statistical information regarding the Platform and its use, which we may then share with third parties or make publicly available. However, none of this information would include any email address or other contact information, or anything that could be used to identify you individually, either online or in real life without your permission.
  • If required by law: We will disclose your information if we believe in good faith that we are permitted or required to do so by law, including in response to a court order, subpoena or other legal demand or request.
  • To protect our interests: We may disclose your information if we feel this is necessary in order to protect or defend our legitimate rights and interests, or those of our users, employees, directors or shareholders, and/or to ensure the safety and security of the Platform and/or the myTimeline community.
  • In the context of a business transfer: We may transfer your information to any person or company that acquires all or substantially all of the assets or business of myTimeline, or on a merger of our business, or in the event of our insolvency.

Most browsers can also delete cookies you may have accepted in the past.

If you choose to use the Platform without blocking or disabling these cookies, you consent to our use of these technologies and to our use (in accordance with this Privacy Policy) of any personal data that we collect using these technologies.
