2. Sharing privately with friends and family
Respect for privacy is something we take very seriously. We offer families and friends the opportunity to create a private space in which to share.
Sharing and publishing à la carte
Each document you upload to ipernity (photo, video, music...) can be shared according to your wishes. In other words, you choose whether the item can be seen by:
- only your family
- only your friends
- only your friends and family
You can specify that you alone may view your documents or share them with the public at large.
You can change the sharing mode of an item at any time.
Keeping your personal data confidential
You can decide whether or not to share each of your personal details (your first and last name,age ,city of residence...) with who you want: your friends, your family, everyone or nobody!
Choosing secured sharing by default setting for extra privacy
The default sharing options allow you to choose a share setting for all items you upload into your space. So you can be sure your documents can be seen only by the right people.
You can review your default choice at any time.
Deciding who can download your photos and order prints
With a few clicks you can decide who has the right to order prints of your photos and also who can download them to their computer.
Revealing yourself, staying hidden - many options!
Numerous options allow you to be invisible if you wish to be. You can choose whether or not to indicate your presence online, allow your relatives to find you on ipernity or even inform other members of your visits to their space.
Surfing on the site safely with your children
Some ipernity pages show documents which members have put up for the public at large. Some creations are liable to be offensive for young people. That’s why we provide a content filtering system to protect minors and enable them to surf on ipernity without unpleasant surprises.
3. More than just sharing ...
ipernity is much more than just a website for sharing, it’s a powerful tool for:
Staying informed through recent activity
