Running and developing myorigins.org does not only require a lot of time, but also money. Therefore we have to charge a small subscription fee. The table below explains the available packages.
|Free trial (30 days)||30||50 MB||free|
|Unlimited||unlimited||from 3000 MB||from 6.00||from 7.50||from 9.00|
We believe in treating you fairly hence: No minimum contract. No advertising. No sharing of your private family tree information with third parties.
Please note that your family tree will expire at the end of the trial or if its subscription is not paid. If this happens, we will try to contact you to give you an opportunity to (re-)subscribe. If you have not (re-)subscribed two months after your family tree has expired, we will delete your family tree in order to conserve resources, unless you have indicated to us that you may (re-)subscribe at a later date. We shall not be held responsible for the resulting loss of data.
As part of the registration process, you will provide your name and email address. You must provide us with accurate, complete and updated registration details. In particular, you must not use someone else's email address without their consent and you must not use someone else's identity.
You will be the administrator of any family tree that you create on myorigins.org. We allow you to control and limit the public's access to information contained in your family tree and it is your responsibility to do this in a way that does not offend or upset family members. Please be aware that it is by default that historic data is public. By selecting the most restrictive settings, all personal information can only be viewed by users of your family tree. Such users can only be chosen by you (or other administrators, if you choose to give administrator rights to someone else).
You are responsible for activity on myorigins.org via your login details. We will never ask you to reveal your password. You are responsible for the confidentiality of your password and sharing of login details is explicitly prohibited and constitutes a breach of this agreement. If we find login details in the public domain (e.g. internet) or if we notice any illegal activity via an account, we will immediately lock the affected account to protect the privacy and security of all family members. If you know of a relative who legitimately would like to get access, then please contact your administrator or ask them to contact your administrator.
You shall contact your administrator or myorigins.org if you know about or suspect unauthorized or illegal use of membership or any other breach of security.
Access to each family tree can be flexibly controlled by its administrator, who first created the family tree. Access to all data can be limited to family members and friends selected by the administrator, historic data can be made public (default) or the administrator can choose to make all information public. Users are responsible for protecting their username and password (see "Your Login").
We do not use personal information routinely for any purpose other than providing you with a personalized family tree. For example, we will use your email address for sending anniversary reminders, if you sign up for them. We may also use your email address to contact you with regard to your family tree or to inform you about new features.
Our pages are free from advertising and your personal data is not used for marketing in any way.
We do not hold any of your financial information. All financial transactions are handled by our partner PayPal.
Individual family tree members can ask their administrator to delete their profile.
The creator of a family tree can ask myorigins.org to delete his or her family tree.
