I'm running a site where users generate their data and store it. I do not share it or plan to share it ever with 3rd party. How do you specify that the site is not going to share information with third party? I'm assuming that you do it in Terms of Service. If so, is there a standard text that I can add to Terms? What would it be?
Be careful in defining what "information" means. You might not share user generate data, but if you use google analytics you actually do share user data - although aggregated and anonymized - to a third party.
Ghostery does not share personal information you have provided to us
without your consent , unless:
doing so is appropriate to carry out a user’s request; we believe that
doing so is legally required; or to otherwise protect our property,
legal rights, or that of others. If Evidon, Inc. should ever file for
bankruptcy or have its assets sold to or merged with another entity,
information Ghostery receives from you from this website is an Evidon
asset and may be transferred.
Disclosures of Personal Information In general, it is not Creative Commons’ practice to disclose personal information to third parties.This is easy to read and covers some great conditions. Some simple edits and you should be good to go.
We may share personal information in two instances:
First, Creative Commons may share personal information with our
contractors and service providers in order to maintain, enhance, or
add to the functionality of the Websites or the OpenID service.
Second, we may disclose your personal information to third parties in
a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to
(a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or
legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court
order; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of
our users, affiliates, or the public.
If Creative Commons is required to provide a third party with your
personal information (whether by subpoena or otherwise), then provided
we have collected and retained an email address for you, Creative
Commons will use reasonable means to notify you promptly of that
event, unless prohibited by law or CC is otherwise advised not to
notify you on the advice of legal counsel.
I have added the following to my Terms of Service.
I hope this does the job.
