[Version 1.0 effective March 30, 2011]
This privacy notice discloses the privacy practices for www.projecis.com and any other sites ("Site(s)") developed by Projecis, Inc, a California corporation ("Projecis") in the future. This privacy notice applies solely to information collected by the Sites. It will notify you of the following:
This Policy may be changed from time to time. If there are material changes to this Policy, Projecis will notify its Members directly. We encourage Members to check this Policy whenever they use the Site and Services to understand how personal information is used.
We collect information from Users in various ways when they use our Web sites and services. We may also supplement this information with information from other companies. We collect two general types of information, namely personal information and aggregate data. As used in this Policy, the term "personal information" means information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a name and email address), and demographic and other information when directly linked to information that can identify an individual.
Our definition of personal information does not include "aggregate" data. Aggregate data is information we collect about a group or category of Services or Members from which individual Member identities have been removed. In other words, no personal information is included in aggregate data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends in our Members' needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our services. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate data, and we may share aggregate data about our Members with third parties for various purposes, including to help us better understand our customer needs and improve our services and for advertising and marketing purposes.
The following are the specific types of information we collect from Users:
In general, we use Member personal information to process requests or transactions, to provide Members with information or services they request, to inform them about other information, events, promotions, products or services we think will be of interest to Members, to facilitate use of, and our administration and operation of, the Web site and services and to otherwise serve Members. For example, we may use personal information:
Projecis may store and process personal information in the United States and other countries. Projecis will adhere to the U.S. Department of Commerce's Safe Harbor privacy principles regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal information from the European Union. Projecis will be applying for Safe Harbor certification and when the application is completed, the Projecis listing will be available for review at web.ita.doc.gov/safeharbor/shlist.nsf/webPages/safe+harbor+list. For more information about the Safe Harbor Principles, please visit the U.S. Department of Commerce's Website at export.gov/safeharbor.
Members will, in their use of the Services, electronically submit data or information to the Services for hosting and processing purposes ("Customer Data"). Projecis will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided herein, or as may be required by law. In accordance with this Policy, Projecis may access Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Services, preventing or addressing service or technical problems, at a Member's request in connection with customer support matters, or as may be required by law.
Projecis includes collaboration features that by their nature support sharing among selected Members. Those Members can see all selected Member's names, email addresses, photos and information from their profile page, and any files a Member chooses to share; and they can post comments and email to the other selected Members. Collaborators invited by a Member as editors can also edit their shared files, upload documents and photos to their shared files, share those documents outside of Projecis, and give other Members rights to view their shared files.
If a Member's personal information changes in any way, we invite them to correct or update their information as soon as possible. Members can make updates to their profile information by logging into their account on www.projecis.com at any time. Members can also request changes or access to their information by emailing email@example.com.
Projecis may send Members communications or data regarding our Sites and Services, including but not limited to (i) notices about their use of our Sites and Services, including any notices concerning violations of use, (ii) updates, and (iii) promotional information and materials regarding our products and services. Members may opt-out of receiving promotional emails from Projecis by following the opt-out instructions provided in those emails. Members may also opt-out of receiving promotional emails and other promotional communications from us at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with a specific request. Opt-out requests will not apply to transactional service messages, such as security alerts and notices about current account and services.
Projecis takes reasonable steps to protect information we collect from Members to prevent loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. In addition, highly confidential personal information such as credit card number and password that we request from Members on our Web site is protected with encryption, such as Secured Socket Layer (SSL) protocol, during transmission over the Internet. Card information is transmitted, stored, and processed securely on a PCI-Compliant network.
The servers on which information is stored are kept in a controlled environment with limited access. While we take reasonable efforts to guard personal information we knowingly collect directly from Users, no security system is impenetrable. In addition, we cannot guarantee that any passively-collected personal information a User chooses to include in documents they store on our systems are maintained at adequate levels of protection to meet specific needs or obligations they may have relating to that information.
Account information and access to our service is accessible only through the use of an individual Member ID and password. To protect the confidentiality of personal information, Members must keep their password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. Members should advise us immediately if they believe their password has been misused. In addition, Members should always logout and close their browser when they finish their session. Please note that we will never ask a Member to disclose their password in an unsolicited phone call or email.
All data is written to multiple disks instantly, backed up daily, and stored in multiple locations. Files that our customers upload are stored on servers that use modern techniques to remove bottlenecks and points of failure. Our servers are protected by biometric locks and round-the-clock interior and exterior surveillance monitoring. Only authorized personnel have access to the data center. 24/7/365 onsite staff provides additional protection against unauthorized entry and security breaches.
Our software infrastructure is updated regularly with the latest security patches. We utilize McAfee® security software for our Sites. Our products run on a dedicated network which is locked down with firewalls and carefully monitored. While perfect security is a moving target, we work with security researchers to keep up with the state-of-the-art in web security. Our servers — from power supplies to the internet connection to the air purifying systems — operate at full redundancy. Our systems are engineered to stay up even if multiple servers fail.
If a Member has any questions about this Policy or if a Member notices abuse, misuse or experiences an incident with their account, they should contact us at email@example.com.
Any questions about this Policy should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
