Last Revised September 27, 2021. Effective September 27, 2021.
Famiboards operates the Famiboards.com website (the “Site”) and provides its users with access to an on-line message board (the “Services”). This page is used to inform both registered users and non-registered visitors to Famiboards of our policies and procedures for the collection, processing, storage, transfer and disclosure of certain personally identifiable information from visitors to the Site. If you choose to use the Services, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy. Under applicable law, Famiboards is the “data controller” of personal data collected through the Services.
What information do we collect?
We may use third party web site analytic tools such as Google Analytics on our website that employ cookies to collect certain information concerning your use of our Services. However, you can disable cookies by changing your browser settings. Further information about the procedure to follow in order to disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider's website via your help screen.

Where Information Is Processed
Famiboards is based in the United States. No matter where you are located, you consent to the processing, transfer and storage of your information in and to the U.S. and other countries. The laws of the U.S. and other countries governing data collection and use may not be as comprehensive or protective as the laws of the country where you live.
Our Legal Basis for Processing Your Data
The laws in some jurisdictions require that we tell you about the legal grounds we rely upon to use, process or disclose your personal data. To the extent those laws apply, our legal grounds are as follows:
Disclosure of Your Information
We consider the protection of your data to be one of our highest priorities. However, there are specific circumstances under which we may share your information with certain third parties:
Famiboards does not knowingly collect, process, store, transfer or disclose any personal data of children or users under the age of consent established by the data protection law of their applicable country. If we learn that we are engaged in said activities with the personal data of such users, we will halt those activities and take reasonable measures to promptly remove the applicable personal data from our records.
If you are aware that a user under the age of consent in their applicable country is accessing Famiboards, please let us know at [email protected]. In the case that we discover that a child under the age of consent in their applicable country has provided us with personal data, we shall delete this from our servers as soon as practicable. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your child has provided us with personal data, please contact us at [email protected] so that we will be able to take the necessary actions to remove your child’s personal data.
The Right to Your Data
Individuals in the European Economic Area (EEA), Canada, Costa Rica and some other jurisdictions outside the United States have certain legal rights to obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal data about them, to access personal data we hold about them (including, in some cases, in portable form), and to obtain its correction, update, amendment or deletion in appropriate circumstances. They may also object to our uses or disclosures of personal data, to request a restriction on its processing, or withdraw any consent, though such actions typically will not have retroactive effect. They also will not affect our ability to continue processing data in lawful ways.
If you would like to submit a data access request, you may send us a request via e-mail at [email protected] with the words “Data Access Request” in the subject of your message. We will then start the process and provide you a link to access the personal data that Famiboards has on you within 30 days.
In addition to the functionality available through “Your Profile Page” on www.Famiboards.com, in which you can correct, update, amend, or delete certain personal data, you can also request other modifications from us directly. Please write us at [email protected] with the words “Personal Data Request” in the subject of your message, along with an explanation of what data subject right you are seeking to exercise. For your protection, we may take steps to verify identity before responding to your request.
You have a right to ask us to stop using or limit our use of your personal data in certain circumstances—for example, if we have no lawful basis to keep using your data, or if you think your personal data is inaccurate.
The rights and options described above are subject to limitations and exceptions under applicable law. In addition to those rights, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. However, we encourage you to contact us first, and we will do our very best to resolve your concern.
To dispose of personal data, we may anonymize it or take other appropriate steps. Some data may be retained where there is a reason to restrict the processing of data instead of deleting it. In such instances, we may anonymize the data rather than deleting it. Data may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for additional time.
If you do not wish to receive personalized advertising that is delivered by third parties outside of the control of Famiboards, you may be able to exercise that choice through opt-out programs that are administered by third parties, including the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI), the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). If you choose to opt-out of personalized advertisements, you will, instead, receive generalized advertisements from our partners.
Links to Other Sites
We value your trust in providing us your personal data, thus we are striving to use commercially acceptable means of protecting it. But remember that no method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and reliable, and we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
