About Barefootlist.com and the Information We Collect

Profile Information submitted by Members to Barefootlist.com

Barefootlist.com is an online social networking community for individuals that want to make a "things to do before I die" list, including suggestions for a list, profiles of members, searches to connect with other members, and Resources (with profiles) to help with completion of things on lists and various email services. To accomplish this, each Barefootlist.com Member creates his or her own profile, which may contain personal information that the Member chooses to include. This personal information includes such things as:

  • First name or first and last names of the Member or profile name (depending on the options selected by the Member)
  • Gender, age, martial status and other, similar personal information
  • Personal List of things to do before the member dies, completed or anticipated
  • Location (e.g., city and state)
  • Photos, videos or other shared content uploaded by the Member to his or her profile, to the extent that it includes personal information

Other Information submitted by Members to Barefootlist.com

Barefootlist.com also collects Member-submitted account information such as name and email address to identify Members, send notifications related to the use of the Barefootlist.com service and conducts market research and marketing for Barefootlist.com's internal use only. You should also be aware that Members may reveal other personal information while communicating on other areas of the Barefootlist.com website, e.g., in journal entries, photos posted or in email messages. This information, in turn, might be viewed by other Members or visitors to the Barefootlist.com website who are not Members.

Finally, we also collect some information from Members, as well as from other visitors to the Barefootlist.com website, that is not personally identifiable, such as browser type and IP address. This information is gathered from all Members and visitors to the website.
