Privacy Policy


Grapeshare is committed to honoring the privacy of its users. The Grapeshare web site grapeshare.com (the Site) adheres to a strict policy for ensuring the privacy of your personal information. This Policy is effective as of NOVEMBER 1, 2009 and applies to information collected through the Site.

1. Information Collection. Grapeshare collects information at the Site at two different stages. First, we collect from all visitors anonymous, aggregate information (such as pages visited on the Site, browser type, referring URL, IP address). This type of information is never linked to any personally identifiable information. It is only used in the aggregate to generate statistical reports about the use of the Site in order to make the Site better meet your needs.

Second, we require the submission of certain personally identifiable information when you use services available on the Site. For example, we collect contact information when you upload your resume for a job posting. We also may collect information that is unique to the company you represent, such as information on your design interests, applications and expected purchase quantities.

2. Personal Information of Children Under 13. Grapeshare complies with requirements of the Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and the FTCs Rule interpreting COPPA (16 CFR  512). The Site is not directed to children, and Grapeshare does not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from children under 13 years of age through the Site.

3. Information Sharing and Disclosure. Grapeshare does not sell, rent or share personally identifiable to or with any third party not affiliated with or owned by Grapeshare, except that we may disclose such information to service providers who may assist us in providing services to you or in such areas as data storage. Aggregate Information is used solely for internal purposes to help us improve our users experience. We do not link aggregate information with personally identifiable information.

4. Log Files. We store information we collect through log files to create a profile of our users. Log files record internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser types, internet service providers (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp and number of clicks (Aggregate Information) to analyze trends, administer the Site, track a customers movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Aggregate Information is not linked to personally identifiable information. A profile is stored information detailing how individual customers use the site. It is used solely for internal purposes, to help us improve the experience of our customers. We do not share your profile with any third parties.

5. Cookies. We use cookies to recognize and count new visitors and to acquire aggregate information that lets us analyze traffic patterns and tune the performance and functionality of the Site. A cookie is a file that is placed on your hard drive when you visit a website. It contains specific information that allows the Site to recognize your computer the next time you visit. The most important use for cookies is to eliminate the need for you to re-enter your information every time you visit the Site.

Most browsers accept cookies by default, but you can turn off cookies using your browser settings. To learn how, see: for Microsoft Internet Explorer users, www.microsoft.com/info/cookies.htm; for Netscape Navigator users, www.netscape.com/legal_notices/cookies.html.

If you turn off cookies, certain of the Site features may no longer work or may work differently. Please note that when you accept a cookie from the Site, we do not gain access to your hard drive or personal information other than the information you have provided us. We do not provide cookie information to any third party.

6. Disclosure of Personal Information As Required by Law. Grapeshare will disclose site user personal information when required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Grapeshare.

7. Business Transition. In the event Grapeshare goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company or a sale of a portion of our assets, our customers personal and/or unique information may be part of the assets transferred. Disclosure of users personal and/or unique information in such a situation, or in contemplation of such a situation, shall be deemed consistent with this Policy. However, such a transfer may result in a change in this Policy, and you are advised and strongly encouraged to review this Policy frequency.

8. Links. The Site contains links to other sites. Grapeshare is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these other sites. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Site. We encourage you to be aware when you leave the Site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information.

9. Security. Grapeshare takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your information. However, given the nature of the internet and the fact that network security measures are not infallible, we cannot guarantee the security of information submitted through the Site.

We also make an off-line effort to protect your information. We make commercially reasonable efforts to restrict access to personally identifiable information to employees who need the information to perform a specific job. We maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.

10. Policy Changes. Grapeshare reserves the right to make, at our sole discretion, any changes, modifications, additions or deletions to all or portions of this Policy at any time. We recommend you review this Policy frequently. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you here, by email or by means of a notice on our home page.
