MyHeritage (the “Website”) is an online service that allows members to create profiles and family sites in order to build and print their family trees, share family photos, keep in touch with family members, and research their family history with advanced research tools (the “Service”). The Service is owned and operated by MyHeritage Ltd. (hereafter ‘we’, ‘our’ or ‘us’). ‘You’ or ‘your’ means an adult user, over the age of 13, of the Service (in some countries the minimum age is 14, see Section “Underage Users” in the Terms and Conditions). The Website is part of a group of websites that we own and operate (the “MyHeritage Website Group”) which also includes, among others, WorldVitalRecords.com and FamilyLink.com.
