Celebrate Your Digital Rights with FOREVER!
FOREVER is the best place to store your precious memories!
FOREVER's mission has always been to protect your digital rights and to provide you with a secure place to store your memories and share them with future generations. Now, FOREVER is better than ever! When downloading a photo or document out of FOREVER, you now have the option to include the details you added within your Account about that file (updated metadata such as tags, descriptions, and dates) as part of the information preserved with that file. This is a feature that some of our clients – photo organizers in particular – have requested.
How does metadata work?
Most people use FOREVER as a permanent home for their memories and don't worry about downloading metadata. Why?
Because when you upload a photo or document to your FOREVER Account, we save the original file with its original metadata in our database. Unless you choose to delete it, this information is saved with your file for your lifetime plus 100 years guaranteed (with a goal of many generations beyond) in your permanent FOREVER Storage Account. When you add or modify information, such as descriptions, tags, and dates, that updated metadata is saved with the original file and metadata in our database, too. If you choose to download your file, you may choose to have the updated metadata attached or leave the original metadata untouched - it’s up to you! See our FAQs to learn more.
Does this matter to me?
Most FOREVER clients use their Account without worrying about metadata at all. If this sounds like you, this update will not have an impact on how you use FOREVER. However, for some clients, such as photo organizers, this is an important tool that enables the story behind saved files to travel outside of FOREVER! One of our clients sent us a message, saying this:
“I do truly believe this new feature has the potential to bring a lot of photo organizers to FOREVER and encourage new ones to start with FOREVER as they enter our field.”
That’s the goal! At FOREVER, we’re for everyone - whether you’re a seasoned photo organizer or just a novice memory maker, we want our tools to appeal to YOU. Learn all about metadata within FOREVER.
FOREVER keeps your information yours.
We don’t hold your precious memories hostage. We make it easy to download photos because you have complete ownership of your digital property at FOREVER and always will. That's our mission & our promise to you.
