[Version 1.1 effective April 1, 2015]

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:

  1. What personally identifiable information is collected from Users and Members through the Sites, how it is used and with whom it may be shared.
  2. What choices are available to you regarding the use of your data.
  3. The security procedures in place to protect the misuse of your information.
  4. How you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.

User and Member privacy is important to Projecis. This privacy policy ("Policy") applies to the Projecis Sites and the Projecis Services, as detailed in the Terms and Conditions, and tells you how personal information is collected, used, disclosed, and protected by Projecis. This statement includes both Projecis's European Union — U.S. Safe Harbor Privacy Statement and the Website Privacy Statements. All capitalized terms not defined in this Policy shall have the same definition as in the Terms and Conditions posted on the Site.

Changes to This Policy

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.

Information Collected

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:

  1. 1. Information Users Give Us. We collect information Users give us on the Site and when they register for and use the Services. Examples include the following:

      1. Registration and Profile Information. When Users register to use our Services or update their profile, we may collect various kinds of information about Users including, name and email address; title, company and other profile information Users provide; demographic information; and information uploaded like photos, files, and documents.
      2. Contact Information. We collect the email addresses Members provide for contacts Members enter or upload into their private contacts page. When Members choose to collaborate or share files with others, we also collect email addresses provided for email invitations to those individuals on the Members behalf.
      3. Payment Information. Since the license to use the Projecis Site is paid by credit card, our payment processing vendor collects Member credit card information and billing address.
      4. Submissions and Customer Service. From time to time we may use surveys, contests or sweepstakes requesting personal or demographic information and customer feedback.

  2. Automatically Collected Information. We automatically receive certain types of information when Users interact with our Web pages, services and communications. For example, it is standard for the User's Web browser to automatically send information to every Web site the User visits, including ours. That information includes the computer's IP address, access times, the browser type and language, and referring Web site addresses. We may also collect information about the type of operating system uses, account activity, and files and pages accessed or used by the User.

  3. Cookies and Web Beacons. We may also use certain kinds of technology such as cookies and Web beacons to collect information. Among other things, the use of cookies and Web beacons enables us to improve our Web sites and emails by seeing which areas and features are most popular, to count the number of computers accessing our Web site, to personalize and improve User experience, to record User preferences, and to allow Users to visit our Web site without re-entering their member ID and/or password. A cookie is a small amount of data which is sent to the User's browser from a Web site's computers and stored on the computer's hard drive. Most browsers automatically accept cookies as the default setting. Users can modify their browser setting to reject our cookies or to prompt the User before accepting a cookie by editing the browser options. However, if a browser is set not to accept cookies or if a User rejects a cookie, some portions of the Web site and services may not function properly. For example, a User may not be able to sign in and access certain Web page features or services. A Web beacon is an electronic image, also called a "gif," that may be used on our Web pages to deliver cookies, count visits and compile statistics on usage and campaign effectiveness or in our emails to tell if an email has been opened and acted upon.

Use of Personal Information.

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.

Sharing of Personal Information.

Projecis reserves the right to share aggregated demographic information about our customers, sales, and traffic to our partners and advertisers. We will not give, sell, rent, share, or trade any personal information or any data that Members store using our services to any third party except as outlined in this Policy or with Member consent. We may disclose information to a third party to (a) comply with laws or respond to lawful requests and legal process, (b) to protect Projecis, agents, customers, and others including to enforce our agreements, policies and terms of use or (c) in the good faith belief that disclosure is needed to respond to an emergency, or protect the personal safety of any person.

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.

Projecis provides Members with opportunities to connect with third party services. If a Member chooses to use any such third party services, we may facilitate sharing of Member information and documents the Member chooses to use with those services. Use of such services is not governed by Projecis's terms or privacy policy. Projecis does not control the services of those third parties or how they use information and documents. Be sure to review the terms and the privacy policies of those third parties before using their services.

We may share personal information in connection with an acquisition, merger, or sale of all or a substantial portion of our business, with or to another company. In any such event, Members will receive notice if their data is transferred and becomes subject to a substantially different privacy policy.

Updating and Accessing Personal Information.

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 support@projecis.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 support@projecis.com 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.

Network and Information Security.

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.
