Last updated: June 18, 2020

This Privacy Policy describes Our policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of Your information when You use the Service and tells You about Your privacy rights and how the law protects You.

Interpretation and Definitions


The words of which the initial letter is capitalized have meanings defined under the following conditions.

The following definitions shall have the same meaning regardless of whether they appear in singular or in plural.


For the purposes of this Privacy Policy:

Collecting and Using Your Personal Data

Types of Data Collected

Personal Data

While using Our Service, We will never ask You to provide Us with personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify You. Personally identifiable information may include, but is not limited to:

Tracking Technologies and Cookies

We use Cookies to store PHP session IDs, which are used to prevent accidental re-submission of forms.

You can instruct Your browser to refuse all Cookies or to indicate when a Cookie is being sent. However, if You do not accept Cookies, You may not be able to use some parts of our Service.

We soley use "Session" Cookies. Session Cookies are deleted as soon as You close your web browser. Learn more about cookies in the "What Are Cookies" article.

We do not run Ads or other Tracking Technlogies.

We use "Session" Cookies for the purpose(s) set out below:

Use of Your Personal Data

The SMV does not collect any personally identifying data on purpose, but here are some things to know:

Retention of Your Personal Data

Any Personal Data which has been submitted by a user will be automatically deleted immediately once the unique link to view the data is removed. Until then, it is stored cryptographically with the passphrase being included in the unique link previously mentioned.

Any "Unrevealed Secrets" may be automatically removed after 60 days.

Cookie(s) mentioned in the "Tracking Technologies and Cookies" section are removed upon closing Your browser.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data

We will never disclose any Personal Data information to anyone outside of The SMV. Any information collected by Us is not personally identifiable.

User submissions (which may contain personally identifiable information) cannot be viewed by Us or anyone else without consent of the user who submitted it. This is because the only way to view the "Secret" is with the link given to the user who submits it.

Security of Your Personal Data

The security of Your Personal Data is important to Us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While We strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect Your Personal Data, We cannot guarantee its absolute security.

Children's Privacy

Our Service does not address anyone under the age of 13. If You are a parent or guardian, know that there is no way for us to determine which submission belongs to the child, and there is no way for anyone to view the contents of said submission without the unique link generated upon submission.

Links to Other Websites

Our Service may contain links to other websites that are not operated by Us. If You click on a third party link, You will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise You to review the Privacy Policy of every site You visit.

We have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

We may update our Privacy Policy from time to time. We will notify You of any changes by posting the new Privacy Policy on this page.

We cannot provide notice of any changes, as we do not store any information that would allow us to contact You.

You are advised to review this Privacy Policy periodically for any changes. Changes to this Privacy Policy are effective when they are posted on this page.
