(2) Collection and use of personal information
OurSpace collects information at different points on our website. The two main points for the information collection are, either when new members join OurSpace or when external users sign a petition powered by OurSpace.
Members: When you become a member of OurSpace, you provide us with your name, email address, country, and zip code. OurSpace is the sole owner of this information and we will not sell, share, or rent this information with any other company or individual in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. From time to time, we may share your information with others on an aggregated basis. We will not share information in such a way that it can be linked to an individual.
Please be aware that this applies only to petitions powered by OurSpace on its servers and platform. Petitions sponsored by external organizations but using our software may have different privacy policies.
Ad Services: In addition, some user information is collected by third-party ad services. Users always have a choice of whether to supply their information or not, but in no case this information will be collected without being properly informed. OurSpace does not maintain any control over the information supplied to these ad services and this information will be used in accordance with the privacy policies of these outside services. OurSpace uses these services in order to allow us to keep supplying free and subsidized petition services. We have screened external privacy policies to ensure that personal user information is not misused, but we encourage users with concerns to contact us directly.
Exception: OurSpace may disclose user or signer information, when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Membership Agreement or may be causing injury or interference, intentionally or unintentionally, to the OurSpace's rights or property, other OurSpace users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
