You have the right to access your personal information. You may change, update, correct, or remove your personal information from StoriesKept at any time. To do so, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Your Data’s Location and Ownership
StoriesKept uses third-party vendors/hosting partners to provide the hardware, networking, storage, and other technology needed to run the software. StoriesKept, however, owns the code, databases, and the software application. You, you, the user, maintain ownership of any data that you enter into the system.
Your identity is tied to the registered email address you have listed on your login settings page (this is also the email address we use to communicate with you). If you forget your password, or there is an ownership dispute, whoever has access to the registered email address for a user is considered to be the owner of that user’s account. You must have access to your email account in order to be guaranteed access to the software.
Because we store your information in multiple locations, including redundant back-ups, your information may remain on our servers after you delete your account. However, this information will never be accessed or used for any reason without your express consent.
Protection of your Private Data
The security, privacy and confidentiality of your Personal Information is of utmost and critical importance to us, which is why we have implemented a variety of industry standard (or better) administrative, physical and technical protections to safeguard the security, privacy, confidentiality and integrity of your Personal Information, including without limitation your Secure Information.
For starters, your password is encrypted and not stored in a readable fashion. Moreover, our technology uses encryption algorithms of the same quality relied on by banks, the military and the U.S. government. Your Secure Information is stored in a hosting provider that has 24/7 physical and biometric protections, firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and an array of other technological safeguards and security certifications.
Nevertheless, no website operator can guarantee that its security measures or safeguards will be 100% effective, and StoriesKept cannot guarantee absolute security of any of your Personal Information, including without limitation your Secure Information. STORIESKEPT SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE OR LIABLE FOR UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, HACKING OR OTHER SECURITY INTRUSIONS OR FAILURE TO STORE OR THE THEFT, DELETION, CORRUPTION, DESTRUCTION, DAMAGE, OR LOSS OF ANY DATA OR INFORMATION, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION SECURE INFORMATION.
