OpenSFS is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of site visitors, prospects, and customers. We will not sell your personal information to anyone. The information you give us as part of registration will be processed by OpenSFS and its service providers entirely within the United States.
The purpose of this policy is to explain the types of information we obtain from users through the OpenSFS web site (opensfs.org), how the information is obtained, how it is used, how it may be obtained by others, and how its use and disclosure can be restricted. OpenSFS’s web site is governed by the following privacy principles:
Principle 1: General Data Collection
Our site automatically gathers certain anonymous traffic information, such as Internet protocol addresses and other numeric codes used to identify a computer. This information is aggregated and does not personally identify you, but it helps us improve the site and the services we offer. For example, we may use IP addresses to monitor site usage to better prepare for anticipated traffic patterns. We may also gather user information that we save on your computer (not on our server) as “cookies” in order to streamline the site experience.
Principle 2: Information Requests
OpenSFS requests personal information from you in order to gather your contact information, such as name, company name, address, phone number, email address, and zip code. Some of this information is optional and you may choose not to provide it. OpenSFS may use the information to contact you to further discuss your interest in our company and products, to send information regarding product updates, and to send a newsletter. We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use and disclose your personal information. You may update or modify your information or change your privacy preferences at any time by emailing us at email@example.com or, in some instances, via the Site. Except as stated in this policy or as provided in the OpenSFS license and services agreement, we do not disclose your personal information to any third party. OpenSFS reserves the right to maintain information on customers who have violated our license and services agreement.

OpenSFS does not disclose your personal Information to third parties, except as set forth in this policy and in cases where OpenSFS, acting in good faith, believes that such action is necessary to: (1) conform to legal requirements or comply with a legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, or court order; or (2) protect and defend the rights or property of OpenSFS; (3) enforce the license and services agreement.
Principle 4: Solicitation
By registering at this site, you are authorizing OpenSFS to email you requested documents, a periodic newsletter, and occasional invitations to attend OpenSFS partner activities. OpenSFS will not send you any information, including email, if at any time you decide to opt-out of receiving such information by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. However, under certain circumstances, OpenSFS may be required to send customers updated information about our products.
