Collection of Your Personal Information
The personal information we collect is that which is required to provide our services. At a minimum, this information includes your name and e-mail address. It may also include phone numbers, work or home addresses and any other information or content submitted by you to the Site.
The Site may also collect certain information about your visit, such as the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the Site, the pages that you access while at the Site, and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our Site. This information is used to help improve the Site, analyze trends, and administer the Site.
Use of Your Personal Information
The personal information collected on the Site will be used to operate the Site and to provide the service(s) or carry out the transaction(s) you have requested or authorized. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, we may and are authorized to provide your personal information, including any information or content submitted by you, to any third party intended to receive such information and content in connection with the Site's services or to carry out any transaction that is the purpose for the submission of such information or content.
In support of these uses, we may use personal information to provide you with more effective customer service.
We may use your personal information to provide you with important information about the product or service that you are using, including critical updates and notifications. Additionally, with your permission, we may send you information about other ProposalSpace products and services, and/or share information with our partners so they may send you information about their products and services.
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as Web-site hosting, various technical services, and sending information about our products, special offers, and other services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
We may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ProposalSpace or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ProposalSpace and our family of Web sites; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our employees or agents, users of our products or services, or members of the public.
Personal information collected on the Site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which ProposalSpace or our affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities.
If you no longer wish to receive our promotional communications, you may opt out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication.
You will be notified when your personal information is collected by any third party that is not our agent/service provider, so you can make an informed choice as to whether or not to share your information with that party.
Control of your Personal Information
Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide while using the Site will not be shared outside of ProposalSpace and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission. As described below in the next section, you can access your personal information and choose how you wish to be contacted.
We may send out periodic e-mails informing you of technical service or security issues related to a product or service you requested, or confirming you requested a product or service. These communications are not promotional in nature and are an intrinsic part of the service being provided. Therefore, you will not be able to choose to unsubscribe to these mailings. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account. To do so, please contact us at .
We may use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. We may use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Site. A session ID cookie expires when you close you browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can remove persistent cookies by following the directions provided with your Web browser.
If you reject cookies, you may still use the Site, but your ability to use some features will be limited.

Security of Your Personal Information
The security of your personal information is extremely important to us. All sensitive information you provide to us while using the Site (such as credit card information) is either permanently discarded immediately after we use it or is encrypted for storage in a secure environment if we need access to it to provide our service(s) to you.
We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use the commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on the Site, contact us at .
