1. How the Custom Spaces Website Operates
2. Information We Collect
We collect two types of data about users: (1) information that you or others voluntarily submit to us (described below under “User Supplied Information”) and (2) technical data automatically collected from all visitors to the Custom Spaces Website (described below under “Passive Data Collection”).
Persons under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the Custom Spaces Website and, therefore, we do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from young people under the age of 13. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and other laws have been established to protect the privacy of minors and we abide by all federal and state laws and guidelines regarding youth privacy.
3. User Supplied Information
In order to create an account on the Custom Spaces Website, you need to provide us with a username, your full name, your city, and your email address. If you choose to provide User Content to us, you are giving us permission to use, store, and disclose such User Content, including any Personal Information provided with such User Content, to any third party in our sole discretion.
4. Passive Data Collection
Like most web-based services, we automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser when you use the Custom Spaces Website. We may use a variety of methods, including clear GIFs (also known as “web beacons”) and “cookies” (small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customized services), to collect this information. The information that we collect with these automated methods may include, for example, your IP address, cookie information, a unique device or user ID, browser type, system type, the content and pages that you access on the Custom Spaces Website, and the “referring URL” (i.e., the page from which you navigated to the Custom Spaces Website).
5. How We Use Personal Information
We use Personal Information to establish and enhance our relationship with you. We may use Personal Information (i) to operate, provide, improve, and maintain the Custom Spaces Website, (ii) to develop new services, (iii) to prevent abusive and fraudulent use of the Custom Spaces Website, (iv) to personalize and display content on the Custom Spaces Website, (v) to send you information about other events or services in which we believe you may be interested and (vi) for other administrative and internal business purposes.
We may use your e-mail address for administrative communications such as communicating with you, notifying you of major Custom Spaces Website updates, for customer service purposes, and to send privacy or security-related notices.

7. Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a merger with, acquisition by, or sale of assets to, another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of your Personal Information, including names, email addresses, and phone numbers, to that entity. We will use reasonable efforts to notify registered users of such a transfer (by a posting on our homepage, or by email to your email address that you provided to us, as chosen by us in our discretion).
We use industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of Personal Information under our control. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such Personal Information, we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your Personal Information will always remain private.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Custom Spaces Website or providing Personal Information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Custom Spaces Website. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on our homepage (www.customspaces.com), or elsewhere on the Custom Spaces Website and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
