Data Protection And Retention
We use reasonable and appropriate security measures as required by applicable law. The transmission of information via the Internet is, unfortunately, not completely secure and despite our efforts to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of the data during transmission through our website/app. It is important that you also play a role in keeping your personal data safe and secure. When signing up for an online account, please be sure to choose an account password that would be difficult for others to guess and never reveal your password to anyone else. You are responsible for keeping this password confidential and for any use of your account. If you use a shared or public computer, never choose to have your login ID/email address or password remembered and make sure to log out of your account every time you leave the computer. You should also make use of any privacy settings or controls we provide you in our website/app.

Retention of personal data. We keep personal data as long as it is necessary or relevant for the practices described in this Notice. We also keep personal data as otherwise required by law. If you leave a comment on our website, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

Linked Sites
It is important to note that Just Enduring’s website contains links to other websites or apps, including social media platforms, and that those other websites or apps may not follow the same privacy policies as Just Enduring. This includes links from advertisers, content providers and trade partners who may use our logo and/or style as part of a co-branding agreement. These other websites may collect data from you that Just Enduring would not and may use that data in ways that Just Enduring would not. This Notice does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of these third-party websites or apps. Please read their privacy policies carefully.

E-mail Transmissions
When you send Just Enduring an e-mail transmission, the e-mail transmission is not guaranteed to be secure. Accordingly, e-mail transmissions are not necessarily protected from unauthorized access. Transmission of information via e-mail is at your own risk.

Application of Privacy Policy

While we do not collect data directly from children, we may collect data about your children from you or a legal guardian, such as your children’s names, ages, relationship to the child you lost, and similar information. This information will be used in accordance with this privacy policy. Examples include matching bereaved siblings together or informing you about an event for siblings that your child may be interested in attending.

If you are a parent or legal guardian and think that your child under 13 has given us data, you can contact us in writing or by email as provided below under the section titled CONTACT.

Correction/Updating of Personal Information
