Privacy Policy

Last updated: January 25, 2018

Acknowledgement and Acceptance of Terms

Proposal Engine, Inc., a Delaware corporation doing business as Proposa ("Proposa", "we", or "us") is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy policy (this "Privacy Policy") sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you are utilizing the Proposa Platform. By utilizing the Platform, you acknowledge that you fully understand this Privacy Policy and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy, along with the Terms of Use, govern your access to and use of the Platform. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the meanings given to such terms in the Terms of Use.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

The Platform collects certain information from and about its users in three ways: directly from our web server logs, directly from the user, and with cookies.

1. Web Server Logs

When you visit the Platform, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:

  • Your internet protocol address.
  • The kind of browser or computer you use.
  • Number of links you click within the Platform.
  • State or country from which you accessed the Platform.
  • Date and time of your visit.
  • Name of your Internet service provider.
  • Web page you linked to our Platform from.
  • Pages you viewed on the Platform.

2. Use of Cookies

Proposa may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize any portion of the Platform, or navigate within the Platform, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information during your current visit and on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

Proposa reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on the Platform unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging a site that relies on third-party cookies into the Platform).

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on the Platform.

3. Personal Information of Users

To participate in the Platform, you must create an Account. When you register for an Account, we will request certain personal information, such as your name, address, email, telephone number, financial information, and other relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

We may rent, sell, or share personal or transaction information with other non-affiliated individuals or companies for the purposes set forth below.

  • Service Providers. Proposa may disclose your information, including personal information and transaction information, to service providers for the purposes of managing, providing, and improving the Platform, analyzing usage of the Services, and for marketing purposes.
  • Vendors and Suppliers. We may share information, including personal and transaction information, with vendors and suppliers to collect additional information about you from them or to help us provide anonymized data to others.
  • Anonymous Use and Sharing. We may share with others anonymized transaction information for market research, data modeling, and analytics. Such information will not include personal information, but may include unique identifiers such as device identifiers or "hashes" of email addresses.
  • For Legal Reasons. We may access, preserve, and disclose collected information if we believe doing so is required or appropriate to: comply with law enforcement requests and legal process, such as a court order or subpoena; respond to your requests; or protect the rights, property, or safety of you, Proposa, or others.
  • Payment and Collections. We may share certain information collected from you to third parties in order to process or collect payments due for Services provided on the Platform.
  • Merger or Sale. If all or a portion of Proposa or its assets are sold or transferred, personal information and other information we have collected may be treated as an asset and transferred in accordance with this Policy.
  • Your Permission. We may also disclose your personal information with your permission.

Participating Merchant Policies

Related services and offerings with links from portions of the Platform, including vendor sites, have their own privacy policies that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who are visible in the Platform or otherwise participate in the Services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

Use of Web Beacons or Gif files

The Platform may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow Proposa to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Proposa may include web beacons in promotional or system generated e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Some of these web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to the Platform and how you use the Platform. Proposa prohibits web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.

Accessing Account Information

We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your Account is correct and current. You may review this information by sending an email to legal@proposa.io.

Changes to this Statement

Proposa may update this Privacy Policy in its sole discretion. When we do, we will also revise the "updated" date at the top of this Privacy page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect. Your continued use of the Platform constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.

Contacting Us

If you have questions regarding our Privacy Policy, its implementation, failure to adhere to this Privacy Policy, and/or our general practices, please contact us at legal@proposa.io. Proposa will use commercially reasonable efforts to promptly respond and resolve any problem or question.
