Ensuring your privacy
Your Tribute is a personal expression of your feelings and memories so it is important you can set the exact level of privacy that you need. This is a fundamental part of the MuchLoved service to you.
You can keep your Tribute website totally private to just you if you wish. Or you can use the ‘Invitation Manager’ provided in your Tribute Settings panel to restrict access to just include specific chosen friends or family. This ‘Invitation Manager’ also helps you know if they have been able to visit and you can add and remove guests whenever you like.
If you prefer, you can make your website totally accessible to everyone on the web, you can give anyone the link and anyone can visit. You can switch your Tribute to become private or public at anytime, it’s totally your decision.
Accepting Posted Contributions (such as Candles, Thoughts and photos)
As well as deciding who has access to view your website, you can also decide whether to allow contributions from visitors, so that there is no concern over receiving unwanted postings. Whilst most Tribute Guardians (that’s what we call you!) enable visitors to contribute messages of condolence, memories and photos, you can easily disable this option so that visitors can still view but not add content to your site.
If you have allowed visitor contributions, you can still opt to approve them before they are actually posted onto your site, with an email alert sent to you whenever a new contribution has been made. This facility ensures that you are always in control of any additions made to your site and that you can easily thank people for their contribution.
One of the benefits of MuchLoved is that you can easily link your Tribute site to social networks whenever you want, for instance when you post a message, add a picture or light a candle. Some people do not want to use or share on social networks however and this is also totally fine. It is simple to turn the facility off in your Privacy Settings to help keep your Tribute site separate from social networks.
MuchLoved manage a number of sensitively designed online tribute gardens where you can include your Tribute site for public view. This is a totally optional opt-in facility and you can instantly add or remove your Tribute from display in the gardens at any time.
Changing Privacy Settings
As with all features of your Tribute, your privacy settings can be changed whenever you want, so you are always in charge of both access and contributions. This ensures that your Tribute remains your own special commemorative place which you control at all times.
