Your Portability Policy

Some sample Portability Policies to help you get started

Portability Policy for SocialSharingSite.net

SocialSharingSite.net is the social dashboard that lets you keep track of everything your friends do on the web.

We are a data Home and a Visitor, too! If you like, you can create a new identity for use here but. We will broadcast updates if you want, and watch for updates on other sites, too. We don't provide no Delegated Access, Personal Backup, or Public data. Accounts are deleted upon request.

APIs and Data Formats
We use both public and licensed, proprietary data formats. Our own activity stream data is made available via Atom. However, we use VerySecureDRM for purchased, digital downloads and this format is not available for publication. See the 'File Formats' section of our support area for detailed information.
Identity and Authentication
Existing Identity - Our purpose of is to bring together your connections from everywhere on the internet. We know that you already have a dozen identities, and making another adds little value. Because of this, we allow you to sign in using one of the identities that you've already created. We support authentication using MySpace, Facebook, Google, AOL, Yahoo, MSN, and OpenID identities.
Working with Things Stored Somewhere Else
Home and Visitor - We provide a single place to connect and share with people on many sites. If your other sites make data available as an Atom or RSS feed, we can import it for use here, or you can leave your things where they are and we will use them remotely via WebDAV.
Watching For Updates
Watch for Updates - We provide several ways to watch for changes on other sites. We can poll for RSS or Atom feeds, or provide Webhook callbacks for the other sites to notify us directly.
Broadcasting Changes Made Here
Chatty - You can choose to make everything you do here available as an Atom feed that can be imported into other products. That way, everything you do here can be re-used wherever you like (as long as they can import RSS).
Access from Other Products
Other Products Can Read and Write - We allow you to store digital images and sound files here. These are made available for HTTP request, and can be modified using WebDAV.
Backing Up
The WebDAV, RSS, or Atom protocols can be used to obtain data for backup.
Public Data
None - Access to whatever you upload or import here is controlled by password. We do not offer public access.
Closing an Account
Accounts Deleted Upon Request - We're sorry to see you go. To close your account, use the 'Close My Account' button which can be found on the 'Settings' page.
Where Things are Stored
All data is stored in our data center, located outside San Francisco, California. We do not offer the ability to choose where your data is stored.

Portability Policy for EmbarrassingDiseases.org

EmbarrassingDiseases.org is devoted to helping people cope with and overcome maladies that would be embarrassing if they were publicly known. Because privacy is our prime concern, we don't link to other internet identities and encourage people to create new identities for use here.

We are a data Home with no documented APIs, and require a Born Again identity. We do not broadcast updates, and provide no Delegated Access, Personal Backup, or Public data. Accounts are deleted upon request.

APIs and Data Formats
None - We consider privacy to be our paramount concern, and thus actively discourage exporting data. No APIs or export tools are provided
Identity and Authentication
Fresh Start - In order to foster an open and trusting environment for discussion and healing, we encourage our users to create a new identity for user here that is not connected to their real life or any other online identity.
Working with Things Stored Somewhere Else
