Privacy Statement for TribalPages

TribalPages has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for this Web site: TribalPages


Our Site uses cookies to maintain member's session when they log in.


We use an outside ad company to display ads on our site. These ads may contain cookies. While we use cookies in other parts of our Web site, cookies received with banner ads are collected by our ad company, and we do not have access to this information.

Registration Forms

Our site's registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and email).

The members contact information is also used to get in touch with the customer when necessary.

Family Tree Websites

Most of the personal information on the Website is organized in family sites, each serving a family or a community of users with a shared family history background or research goal. Every family site is managed by a site manager – the user who created it, and may have site members as participants. Family sites typically contain one or more family trees, plus family photos and additional family-oriented content posted by the site manager and the members of the family site.

Within a family site, the Website provides convenient visual tools for building a family tree and adding information to family tree profiles. The Website also provides output tools for producing family tree charts and posters and for showcasing a user's family history to family members via slideshows and online reports. When building a family tree, the user decides which relatives to add to the family tree, whether to add deceased relatives, living relatives or both, and which information to include about them. Adding living relatives to the family tree requires the user to obtain their prior consent. Before adding living relatives below legal age to the family tree, the user must obtain the consent of their parent or guardian.

The user decides to what degree information on the family tree and other information from the family site will be visible to and discoverable by other users, by setting the Privacy Preferences (described in a detailed section below). The user decides whether to build the family tree on the Website on his/her own, or to make it a collaborative effort by inviting family members to assist, using facilities available on the Website for inviting members. If other members are invited, they make similar choices on entering information into the family tree. All information is entered into the Website directly and is not collected implicitly. The Website prevents information on living people in family trees from being disclosed to strangers, to protect privacy, and such information if entered will not be visible outside the family site or discoverable by search engines such as Google. There is one scenario in which living people in family trees may be seen by other users of the Website, typically relatives of these living people – see section "What are Smart Matches™ and how do they affect your privacy?", which describes how to prevent that scenario if it is a concern. Living people may also be found on the Website in public records (e.g. the 1940 United States Federal Census collection), and in these cases they are allowed by applicable laws. Living people who are well-known celebrities (e.g. presidents, movie stars) can be found on the Website inside the Geni.com collection.

The personal information that you and other users enter is stored in the Website only for the purpose of delivering the Service to you and the other users, i.e. displaying the family tree, printing the family tree, searching historical records, and other genealogy features.
