Who we are
Our website address is: https://proofpact.com. We offer shortened URLs at vipstory.io which our customers can share to third party sites and services.
When visitors leave stories, reviews, or comments on the site we collect the data shown in the form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection as well as other data including but not limited to email addresses and names.
Your stories may be held in moderation, approved, or denied. If approved, the entity that your story was left for may or may not display it publicly on their website or public facing accounts. Stories provided with a negative rating will not be publicly available and are sent directly to the entity that the story is being provided for. Stories provided with a positive rating will be sent to the entity that the story was provided for and it will be their choice as to whether that story is made publicly available.
Stories that are made publicly available by the entity that the story was provided to are, in some cases, able to be shared to social sites. The sharing of the story is up to the discretion of the entity that the story was provided to. In most cases that discretion is held by the customers of Proofpact that the stories were provided to.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Cookies are in place for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in forms repeatedly or so that notifications do not show up repeatedly. These cookies may last anywhere from 1 hour to 1 year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you create an account, publish a story, or create engagement routes, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID (object) of the items you just created/edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Pages and forms on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, forms, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We do not share your data
Private data shared with Proofpact.com is privately held and secure. We will never sell your data or information.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a story, the story and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up stories automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time. Website administrators can also see and edit that information. If you need assistance editing or deleting information, please contact us.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left stories, or have created a nonprofit account, storyboards, or engagement routes, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This may mean that what you have created on Proofpact is also deleted or it could mean that this content is attributed to someone else. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where your data is sent
We do not send your data to third parties without acceptance first. As mentioned above, third party cookies may be present in embeds. Integrations may sync with third parties in which data is transferred based on a request/response mechanism. Integrations may also transfer data from third parties to Proofpact and this should be noted where appropriate. Otherwise, we do not send, submit, or transfer your data to any parties or platforms outside of proofpact.com.
