When you sign up to use the Services, you may voluntarily give us certain information about yourself or your organization. This can include name, username, email address, street address, telephone number, information about your intended use of the Services and any other information you provide us. If you’re using the Services on your mobile device, you may also choose to provide us with location data. We may also collect your credit card information if you choose to pay for your access to the Services over the Website.
Like most website operators, Shop Office Space collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Website. Shop Office Space’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Shop Office Space’s visitors use the Services. From time to time, Shop Office Space may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its Services. Shop Office Space also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Services. For instance, Shop Office Space may monitor the Website to help identify spam.
In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access the Services, including the type of device, the operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
When you use the WiFi or other network features provided in a Shop Office Space, we may collect information about your usage of the WiFi, such as when and for how long you use the network and the frequency and size of data transfers.
You understand that WiFi, which utilizes wireless technologies, is not inherently secure and that wireless communications may not remain private or free of interception or access by others. We will not be liable to you or any other party for any lack of security that may result from your use of the Shop WiFi, and you agree that you are solely responsible for implementing and maintaining appropriate technological and other safeguards to ensure the safety and security of your device and anything stored on, or transmitted by, your device.
#####USE OF INFORMATION
We use the information we collect to provide you full access and functionality of the Services. Accordingly, your information may be used for the following purposes: (i) to provide and improve our services, features and content; (ii) to administer your use of our services and accounts; (iii) to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Services; (iv) to better understand your needs and interests; (v) to fulfill requests or to respond to questions or comments you may make; (vi) to personalize your experience; (vii) to provide you with announcements, notifications and advertisements related to your interests and use of the Services and other communications such as electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging; (viii) to provide service announcements; (ix) to protect against users seeking to hack into the Services; (x) to assess the level of general interest in the Services; and (xi) to prepare the Shop Office Space directory.
####DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION:
For the convenience of its members, The Shop prepares an internal directory to allow members to connect, network and contact each other for legitimate business purposes. When you register to use the Services, The Shop may include the business name, email address, contact telephone number, social media contacts or username, and other basic profile information of members or member companies (“Contact Information”) in our internal member directory (the “Directory”). The Directory, including your Contact Information, will be exclusively available to other members and member companies on the Portal. All members and member companies agree to use Contact Information only for legitimate business purposes and to refrain from using Contact Information to spam, market, harass or otherwise contact other members against their wishes. All members and member companies expressly agree not to compile, disclose or sell Contact Information for inclusion on any email database. By accessing the Directory you expressly agree to use member Contact Information only for legitimate business purposes. Your failure to abide by this condition may result in the immediate termination or suspension of your access to the Services and the Shop Office Space as well as other legal penalties.
If you feel a member is making unwanted use of your Contact Information please contact us at: 504-517-1200 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Except as otherwise provided in this policy, we disclose the potentially personally-identifying information you disclose to Shop Office Space only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide Services, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country and by using the Services, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Shop Office Space, third parties or the public at large. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
In addition, in some cases we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if Shop Office Space or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Shop Office Space goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Shop Office Space may continue to use your personal and non-personal information only as set forth in this policy. Otherwise, we will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone.
We are committed to protecting your personal information. We regularly test our facilities and use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
