OfficeSpace Software does not rent or sell personally identifiable information (i.e., information such as name, address, phone number or e-mail, that identifies a user as a particular person), nor would OfficeSpace Software exchange or trade such information with third-parties without a user's explicit permission. OfficeSpace Software does not disclose credit card or other personally identifiable financial information other than as necessary to complete a credit card or other financial transaction, or upon explicit permission from the applicable user. All such use by OfficeSpace Software of financial information shall be subject to the section of this policy on financial issues, set forth below.
If you have elected not to receive further information from OfficeSpace Software, officespacesoftware.com will not send such information. If you have elected to receive further communication from OfficeSpace Software, officespacesoftware.com will only send information in categories that have been authorized.

In certain instances, a user may have the opportunity to receive or create a password to access or submit personally identifiable information. One should not divulge a password to anyone, and OfficeSpace Software will never ask a user for a password in a telephone call, fax, e-mail or other form of unsolicited communication.

V. Web Bugs (a/k/a Web Beacons)
officespacesoftware.com does not use Web bugs7 on its Web pages or in any html e-mail generated by use of the portal, or otherwise sent from officespacesoftware.com, for any purpose other than to identify site performance needs, ensure compatibility with the technology used by officespacesoftware.com's visitors and/or add and improve services offered on officespacesoftware.com.
No applications on officespacesoftware.com specifically solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, because such information will not be specifically identified as being from minors, users of officespacesoftware.com should be aware that personally identifiable information submitted to officespacesoftware.com by minors will be subject to being treated in the same manner as information given by an adult.
OfficeSpace Software strongly believes that parental supervision is an important factor in Internet use by minors. Therefore, officespacesoftware.com asks parents to guide their minor children when children are asked to provide any personal information online. officespacesoftware.com further asks that children ask for and receive their parent's permission before providing any information online.

VIII. Intellectual Property
The content of officespacesoftware.com's Web pages is copyrighted, and contains some third party images/graphics that are used with permission. Users are notified, therefore, that one should presume the need to obtain permission from the copyright holder before reproducing or otherwise using images/graphics from this Web site.
IX. Changes to Privacy Statement
officespacesoftware.com may change the policies set forth in this privacy Statement from time to time, and reserves the right to do so without notice.
Privacy Statement Footnotes
1 An IP address is a numeric value assigned to an Internet Service Provider, a computer network, an individual computer or router, or a firewall (collectively, "users") so that other computers on the Internet may direct Internet messages or other traffic to such users. Until the IP addressing system is changed, an IP address will take the form of XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX, where the X's are numbers between 1 and 9, and 0 for some positions.
2 A Domain Name is an alphanumeric value that represents the plain language (English or such other local language as is relevant) translation of the IP address assigned to a specific user or collection of users. For example, if a user had an IP address of 18.104.22.168, the Domain Name that represented that address might be WWW.HOME.COM.
3 Commercial and non-commercial marketing purposes include, for the purposes of this policy, Unsolicited Commercial Electronic Mail (colloquially known as "SPAM" e-mail), targeted e-mail for the purpose of selling products, or the sale or exchange of personally identifiable information between parties that anticipate receiving valuta in exchange for such information.
4 E-mail is generally not secure against interception. If a communication is very sensitive, or includes personal information like a bank account, charge card, or social security number, it is more prudent to send such communication by postal mail (i.e., "snail mail") instead.
5 OfficeSpace Software maintains user registration information behind a "firewall" and limits accessibility to such information to only those few employees that have special access rights to production systems. Sensitive information submitted by users is transmitted by Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") technology and encrypted.
6 For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, OfficeSpace Software employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Unauthorized attempts to upload information or change information on this service are strictly prohibited and may be punishable under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 and the National Information Infrastructure Protection Act, and such other federal, state or local law as is applicable.
7 A Web bug is a clear, camouflaged or otherwise invisible graphics image format ("GIF") file placed upon a Web page or in hyper text markup language ("HTML") e-mail and used to monitor who is reading a Web page or the relevant e-mail. Web bugs can also be used for other monitoring purposes such as profiling of the affected party.
