The Problem


Things are not as private as they once were.  There are more of us, we interact more often than ever.  We are encouraged by things like Facebook to reveal more about ourselves to a lot more people.  And even when we want to keep things private, it’s harder than it used to be.


And sometimes that’s because people betray our trust. 


If you’re dating, maybe that person breaks up with you and puts something intimate on the Internet.  You’ve read the articles, you know it happens.  That’s rare -- but hurtful things can get said in your circle of friends, maybe even photos get passed around, and that’s not rare.


Many people are in alternative lifestyles of one kind or another.  Some are sexual, some are cultural, some are even religious or political.  But for many, if their alternative lifestyle is exposed, it’s trouble, even though it’s legal and moral. Intolerance may not be fair, but it's real.


As much progress as gays have made in recent years, many still want to stay in the closet because of that intolerance.


Sometimes exposure of one’s private life is nobody’s fault, it just happens. But when someone intentionally betrays your trust and reveals private things about you that you trusted that person to keep private, that’s just wrong. 


You need protection against that, and the harm it can cause.

The Solution


“There oughta be a law!”


And there is.  It’s the kind of law you write yourself -- a contract.  And it’s as enforceable as any other law.


We have created a Privacy Agreement that binds everyone  who signs it to respect each other’s privacy, as to anything that happens in certain general categories of lifestyle, and as to anything in particular that you designate.  We’ll go through it with you here.


A similar agreement we devised has been used by a number of organizations in Florida for the last fifteen years.  Its greatest value is as a deterrent, because the penalties for violation are substantial.  But if there is a violation (very rare), you can enforce it in a private arbitration, which is like hiring a judge to review the facts and impose judgment in private, a summary of which can be filed in court and enforced like other judgments. 


We will provide you with guidance if there is a violation, and in some cases we may decide to hire you a lawyer.


Here’s how you get protected when dealing with individuals: 


First, you sign up and become a subscriber under the agreement.


Then anytime you meet someone new and you get to the point where you want to receive privacy protection from that person, you just say, “I’d like to get to know you better, but you have to be a subscriber of  I’ll email you the link.” 


Next, you go to our Verification page on this website and send a verification email from us to your new friend.  That email will confirm that you are a subscriber, and will also have a link to this website for your friend to click on. 


When he or she signs up, s/he should then send a verification back to you.  When that happens, each of you knows that you are obligated to respect the terms of the Privacy Agreement from then on. 


Perhaps your new friend is already a subscriber.  In that case, just say, “Great.  Let’s verify.”  And you both do that, and you’re done.


We realize that for a lot of people, injecting this requirement into a new or even existing relationship will be uncomfortable. So was the idea of a prenuptial agreement when it was invented. But a lot of people realized that sometimes there are really good reasons for using that protection. Many still don't. For them total trust is enough.


But if you want to be sure about what might happen later, protection makes sense. It's true for assets by using a prenup, it's true for your health by practicing safe sex, and it's true for your dignity, reputation and privacy using Lifestyle Privacy. People understand those other kinds of protection now. Get them used to this kind, too.


The cost of a basic subscription is just $12 a year, a dollar a month.  Good protection just doesn’t get any better than that.
