Everyme Challenges All Social Networks With New Privacy Policy

(June 07, 2012)

PALO ALTO, Calif., June 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Everyme, the private social network which focuses on allowing you to share content with your closest friends and family in intimate-sized Circles, today announced a new industry leading privacy policy. The new policy highlights Everyme's focus on its users' privacy in a concise, user-friendly document.

"Everyme distinguishes itself from all other social networking services by offering the highest level of privacy, from owning your own data, to no public sharing, to never sharing your information with advertisers or third parties," said Oliver Cameron, CEO and Founder of Everyme. "We decided it was critical to provide a privacy policy that clearly articulates these Everyme differences and we challenge all social media apps to follow our lead in protecting the privacy of their users."

According to a blog posted on, the new privacy policy is just 850 words, one-third the average length of a Privacy Policy. Here are the highlights:

You own your data. Period. And you can have it whenever you want it, including all original photos and stories that you or others in your Circles posted, by using the export functionality at any time, available in our mobile apps. You can delete your account and all of your information at any time, easily, at which point we email you a copy of your data; we're just returning what's lawfully yours.

None of the content you share in your private Circles is public nor will it ever be. We've gone to great lengths to ensure we respect your reputation with your friends as well. We never send emails or texts to your friends without you explicitly doing so – emails are always on your behalf, and not ours.

We do not sell your data to advertisers or any third parties under any condition. We don't make any tools that let advertisers access or sell ads on your data. We don't track you. The only stats we track are aggregated usage data across the site, and we only use this information for our own purposes. It's never shared.

Other people can't see stuff you don't want them to see. Phone numbers and emails you put in the app are neither sold to anyone nor visible to any other users but you.

In the event of a change of ownership at Everyme, the new owner must abide by our Privacy Policy, not theirs. If we are forced to shut down, since you own your data, you will get it back and we make that promise to you.

We don't allow you to access our site from a non-secure connection.

If we ever make changes to our policy, you can easily see exactly what's changed on our Github page. Git is software built specifically for tracking changes.
