This privacy statement covers the information DraftSpark collects about you when using our products (DraftSpark RFP Assistant, DraftSpark Search, DraftSpark for Word) or services, or otherwise interact with us, whether visiting our website, communicating with us, or attending an event. This privacy statement also applies to DraftSpark’s marketing and advertising practices where and when it is referenced. It is meant to inform you about our collection and use of your personal data. We refer to all of these products and interactions collectively as “Services” in this policy.

DraftSpark is a brand owned by Palo Alto Research Center Incorporated (PARC). In this policy, “we” and “us” refers to the DraftSpark brand, and “PARC” refers to Palo Alto Research Center Incorporated.

The Information We Collect

The Personal Information We Collect

If you submit information or register for the Services, DraftSpark may ask for your name, email address, company name, mailing address, phone number, and information about your interests and preferences. Once you submit information or register you are no longer anonymous to DraftSpark.

How We Use the Information

DraftSpark may use this information to help customize the content that you see and to contact you. DraftSpark will not send you information, including email, unless you advise DraftSpark during the information submission or registration process, or subsequently request, that you do want to receive these types of correspondence from DraftSpark.

How We Share the Information

DraftSpark maintains the information it receives online in strict confidence; information you submit to DraftSpark is not sold to third parties.

DraftSpark reserves the right to notify its customers about administrative matters. When required by law, DraftSpark will share information with government entities. Although DraftSpark and PARC do not currently anticipate a change in its corporate status, in the event of a merger or acquisition of the company or a substantial portion of its assets, DraftSpark may disclose, transfer or sell personal information collected online to the surviving or acquiring party, respectively. DraftSpark may share or disclose this information if DraftSpark suspects a violation of its policies or to protect the safety of any person or entity. DraftSpark may also share or disclose information to its service providers and suppliers that use the information solely on DraftSpark’s behalf or to its parent company and affiliates for reporting processes and marketing research. Personal information collected online will remain subject to promises made in this Privacy Policy.
