J. T. Recherches inc., operator of this website (the site ), recognizes the confidentiality of information that may be disclosed by its members in registering or making purchases from our Website and we are firmly committed to protecting your privacy. The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website.
Personal information is the one that is provided to J. T. Recherches, Inc. at member registration, or in changing the content of 'my account', or at a purchase, and does not include the content added in the Family Tree section.
Personal information is not provided to unrelated third parties, except to our payment supplier, our email supplier and in rare cases involving possible violations of our use policies, legal statutes, or other laws. We do collect some data, always with your knowledge and consent, which is used to fulfill orders or to tailor our offers to your needs.
Information passed to our payment supplier is only for payment processing purposes and the organization operating that supplier has a commitment not to use it for any other purpose.
Of note, the content added by a member in the Family Tree section is not part of the personal information within the limitations of this policy and becomes automatically the property of You Folks, who can use it for genealogy purposes.
Demographic information collected through on-site user surveys may be used in aggregate statistical form to attract potential sponsors.
Unless permitted by law, no personal information is collected, without first obtaining your consent to the collection, use and dissemination of that information. However, we may seek consent to use and disclose personal information after it has been collected in those cases where we wish to use the information for a new or different purpose where you have not already consented to such a use of your personal information.
By providing personal information on this Website, you agree and consent that we may collect, use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this policy. In addition, where appropriate, specific authorizations or consents may be obtained from time to time.
In most cases, and subject to legal and contractual restrictions, you are free to refuse or withdraw your consent at any time, upon reasonable advance notice. Note that in certain circumstances, products or services can only be offered or provided if you provide personal information. Consequently, if you choose not provide us with any required personal information, we may not be able to offer or provide the products or services requested .
Does Your Folks ask for personal information?
Yes. Your Folks asks for some personal information when you sign-up as a member, or when you make a purchase (for example, buying a subscription). We may ask for similar information at other times, such as when you enter contests or other promotions sponsored by Your Folks and/or our many partners.
When you use your credit card for a payment, you give yourself your credit card number to our payment server: so, Your Folks has no knowledge of that information.
How does Your Folks use my personal information?
Our goal is to provide you with the most personalized, relevant, user-friendly Web experience possible. The primary use of all your personal information is to efficiently provide you with relevant information or services.
Your Folks will also use registration information to let you know about new features or other offers of interest from Your Folks, or to address customer service needs and requests.
Your Folks does not sell, rent or otherwise distribute personal information you provide us.
Will Your Folks disclose any of my personal information to third parties?
Your Folks will not disclose any of your personal information, except with your knowledge and consent, or as described in this policy or as may be required by law, or to protect the rights or property of Your Folks.
Other circumstances where limited personal information may be disclosed are specifically described when the data is collected, or in the rules of contests or other promotions. So, in all cases you control what, if any, information you disclose.
Your Folks reserves the right to disclose aggregated user statistics, such as « 50 % of our members are women» or « 50 % of our members attend college», in order to describe our services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties.
Additionally, if you click away from Your Folks to visit the site of any third party advertiser or sponsor, you may be asked for your credit card or other personal information in order to purchase or use products and services offered. These companies have their own privacy and data collection practices. Your Folks has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies. You should therefore review their privacy policies carefully if you have concerns about how your information may be used.
Where does Your Folks keep my information?
Currently, Your Folks holds personal information in the province of Quebec, in Canada, where our hosting and storage facilities are located.
Will Your Folks use my information for direct mailings?
Your Folks will send electronic mail to you, for the purpose of informing you of changes or additions to Your Folks, or of any related products and services.
May I refuse to provide personal information to Your Folks?
Visitors may register as Your Folks members by providing only their first and last name, their email address and selecting a username and a password. To get access to the complementary services, they must also give information required for the payment process.
How does Your Folks protect my information?
Your Folks and its internet service provider endeavor to maintain appropriate physical, procedural and technical security with respect to its offices and information storage facilities, so as to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of personal information. This also applies to our disposal or destruction of personal information.
Your Folks further protects personal information by restricting access to it to those of our personnel who have a need to know that information in order that we may provide our products or services.
May I access and review my personal information held by Your Folks?
Your Folks permits the reasonable right of access and review of your personal information held by us by allowing you to access account information via the "My Account" section of our site as well as on every purchase.

Contests and Promotions
Your Folks may occasionally run contests or other special promotions in which we ask members or visitors for contact information (like an email address) or demographic information (like a zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to send you promotional material about our company or our partners. Your contact information is also used to contact you when necessary and may be shared with other companies for promotional purposes, but only with your prior permission and under the terms and conditions specified when you take part in the promotion.
