This Privacy Policy covers how we collect, use, and disclose your information. When using our Service you implicitly consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our privacy practices. If you have any questions, concerns or comments about this Privacy Policy, please contact us at .

Personal and Business Information Collected Upon Registration


Personal information is data that can be used to uniquely identify or contact a single person. When you create or reconfigure a 4Spires account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, password, and email address. You may also provide us with additional information regarding your company or work group. We do not disclose your private information except in the very limited circumstances described below.

How 4Spires Uses Personal Information

4Spires takes precautions—including administrative, technical, and physical measures—to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft, and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Specific allowable uses of personal information include:

  • Information collected allows us to keep you posted on 4Spires’ latest product announcements and software updates as well as helping improve our services.
  • We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve 4Spires’ products, services, and customer communications.

How 4Spires Uses Non-Personal Information

4Spires also collects non-personal information—data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information. Specific allowable uses on non-personal information include:

  • Collected information such as language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, location, and the time zone when a 4Spires service is used so 4Spires can better understand customer behavior and improve our products and services.
  • Collected information regarding customer activities on our website. This information is aggregated and used to help us provide more useful information to our customers and to understand which parts of our website, products, and services are of most interest. Aggregated data is considered non-personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy.
  • 4Spires servers automatically record information (“Log Data”) created by any use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, operating system, date/time stamp, pages visited, and search terms. We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Requests and Conversations

4Spires services are primarily designed to help you carry on a conversation regarding work-related requests. The content of these conversations is visible to only the participants designated in the conversation. You are fully responsible for the content and any personal information submitted in these conversations.


Like many websites, 4Spires may use “cookie” technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. 4Spires may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how users interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Some features, like automatic log in, will not work without cookies.

Third Party Services

4Spires may use a variety of services hosted by third parties to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These services may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP request.

Service Providers

4Spires engages certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your personal and business information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to obligations mirroring the protections of this privacy policy.

Law and Harm

Your personal and business information may be disclosed if 4Spires believes that it is reasonably necessary, or has been requested by a Court of Law or Regulatory Body, to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect 4Spires’ rights, personnel, or property.

Business Transfers

In the event that 4Spires is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, all personal and business information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this privacy policy shall apply to all information as transferred to the new entity.

Modifying Your Personal Information

If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools to access or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account.

Changes to This Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be displayed here. By continuing to access or use the Services you agree to be bound by the then current Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is effective as of August 15, 2010.
