GoToList Privacy Policy
Last update: Jan. 19, 2016

We take your privacy very seriously and we make it simple for you: no need for fine print.

The longer version our lawyers wrote is below:

The GoToList service is strongly committed to the privacy of all its users. We understand you value your privacy and we do too. We want you to always be confident that your GoToList experience is safe and secure. If you have any additional privacy or security questions after reading this information, please contact us at

What kind of information do we, the providers of the GoToList service, collect from you and what does GoToList do with it?

GoToList collects three different types of information from you when you use the GoToList service, website or software.

  1. Personally Identifiable Information. GoToList is a personalized service and therefore we collect personally identifiable information from you and share it with the members of your group. Personally identifiable information means any information that may be used to identify you, including, but not limited to, your name and email address. You provide us with this personally identifiable information voluntarily through optional submissions, such as registration forms, login pages and list records. For example, to create an account with us, you are asked to submit some basic registration information including a valid email address and password. We use this personally identifiable information to identify each authorized user, provide and improve our services, customize your user experience, secure your account and prevent fraud. We also use your email address to communicate with you about our products and services.


  2. Private Content. Private content includes your and your group’s personal information that you and your group voluntarily submit to GoToList for the purpose of sharing this content among the members of your authorized group. Authorized group is limited to the people specifically invited by the list publisher to participate in the group. Private content includes contact information, calendar entries, photos and other similar private information. Because you input private content into your own secured account, this private content is accessible only to you and your group members that have a GoToList account and had been invited by the list publisher to participate in the same group. WE DO NOT SHARE PRIVATE CONTENT WITH ANY THIRD PARTY. The only exception is when we believe we are required to do so by law. Any 3rd party company we work with to provide the GoToList service will be a) bound with a data confidentiality agreement not to disclose your data and b), provided with only the information they need to accomplish the contracted task.
  3. Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Similar to other web services, GoToList automatically records non-personally identifiable information based on your account activity and use of our site or services. We do this solely to improve our service.

    GoToList collects the following types of non-personally identifiable information:

    • Aggregated Data. GoToList collects user information and content (including private content) in the aggregate as you use our site and services to analyze our overall user demographics and usage patterns. Aggregate data does not contain any personally identifiable information.
    • Server Logs. GoToList collects information from our server logs. These logs may include information such as your Internet Protocol address, browser details, the date and time of your request and certain information about your usage of our site and service.
    • Cookies. Similar to other web services, we may place a text file called a "cookie" on your computer. This cookie does not contain personal information and cannot retrieve personal information from your computer. Cookies enable us to relate your use of the site and services to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. GoToList uses cookies to track user traffic patterns, analyze our overall user demographics and usage patterns, and to authenticate you on to the service. Cookies or web beacons can be used to collect click stream information, browser type, time and date, and precise geo location and user device identification (if you have provided your consent to us to do so). You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser, but in doing so may not be able to use all capabilities of our service.
    • Links. GoToList may track whether links to external Web sites are followed.

How does GoToList protect children's information?

GoToList will never knowingly request personally identifiable information or private content from anyone under the age of 13. List organizers and members of lists may include information about children, for example as a field within a family directory, within their individual lists and contact records at their discretion and with their responsibility.

Do you share my information with third parties that result in revenue or other financial transfers to GoToList?

No. We do NOT make money by sharing your personal information. Full stop. Our business model is to charge a fair fee for the service we provide. We do not make money by sharing our customers’ information.

Will you transfer my information to a new business partner or acquirer?

This privacy policy binds GoToList and any subsequent business partner. As GoToList continues to develop its business, it might sell some or all of its assets to another company in connection with a business merger or acquisition. In such cases, customer information (including your personally identifiable information and private content) may be transferred to the company who is taking over GoToList's service. Still, the new company would be required to protect all the information that GoToList has collected from its users under the same terms of this privacy policy.

Can I delete my information from the GoToList service?

Yes. As a GoToList user, you always can review, modify or delete your personally identifiable information and your private content any time you log into your GoToList account using an email address and password listed on the account. As part of our system backup and restore protocols, we may retain your data for up to 12 months. If you’d like us to delete your data from those backup protocols, please contact us at with that request.

What if I live outside of the United States?

GoToList's site and services are hosted in the United States. If you are visiting our website or using our service from outside the United States, you are transferring your personal data into the United States when you use the GoToList service. Many regions, such as the European Union, have data collection protections that differ from U.S. law.

How does GoToList maintain security?

GoToList uses several industry best standard methods of securing user information and data. Examples of our security measures include, where appropriate, firewalls and secure socket layers. We also maintain strict limits on who at GoToList can access the information databases that contain your information. Since there is no such thing as perfect security over the Internet, we cannot guarantee 100% security. However, in the unlikely case of a security breach on our databases, we will take immediate steps to resolve the problem swiftly and effectively.

What happens if I want to forward my GoToList information to a friend, or another member of my group forwards my information to someone outside the group?

If you use one of the helpful GoToList features designed to allow you to voluntarily forward or share your or another group member’s information with anyone outside of your secure account, we will forward or share access to such content on your and their behalf through the features visible to you in the service. The recipient’s email address will not be stored by GoToList and will not be used by GoToList to initiate any emails. By sharing your content, you automatically limit GoToList's ability to keep your content private. We recommend that you do this only with trusted contacts.

Will there be changes and updates to this Privacy Policy?

We may occasionally update this privacy policy. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date. For changes to this privacy policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of your personal information, we will attempt to notify you by email of the change. We encourage you to review this privacy policy from time to time to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. If you continue to use our application or site or services after we have attempted to contact you about material changes to the privacy policy, we will assume that you agree to the changes.
