Pro-softnet Corp. respects individual privacy and values the confidence of its customers, business partners and others who may use our services. Not only do we strive to collect, use and disclose personal information in a manner consistent with the laws of the countries in which we do business, but we also aim to uphold the highest ethical standards in our business practices. This Safe Harbor Privacy Policy (the "Policy") sets forth the privacy principles that Pro-softnet Corp. follows with respect to transfers of personal information between the United States and member states of the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway (the European Economic Area).
Safe Harbor
The United States Department of Commerce and the European Commission have agreed on a set of data protection principles and frequently asked questions (the "Safe Harbor Principles") to enable U.S. companies to satisfy the requirement under European Union law that adequate protection be given to personal information transferred from the EU to the United States. The EEA also has recognized the U.S. Safe Harbor as providing adequate data protection (OJ L 45, 15.2.2001, p.47). Consistent with its commitment to protect personal privacy, Pro-softnet Corp. adheres to the Safe Harbor Principles.

This Safe Harbor Privacy Policy (the "Policy") applies to all personal information received by Pro-softnet Corp. in the United States in any format including electronic, paper or verbal.

For purposes of this Policy, the following definitions shall apply: "Pro-softnet Corp." will refer to its IDrive service ( a wholly owned subsidiary of Pro-softnet Inc.). "Personal information" means any information or set of information that identifies or could be used by Pro-softnet Corp. or its agents to identify an individual. Personal information does not include information that is encoded or anonymized, or publicly available information that has not been combined with non-public personal information. "Sensitive personal information" means personal information that reveals race, ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, or that concerns health or sex life. In addition, Pro-softnet Corp. will treat as sensitive personal information any information received from a third party where that third party treats and identifies the information as sensitive.

Adherence to European Union Safe Harbor Privacy Principles
Pro-softnet Corp. has instituted measures and mechanisms to ensure adherence to the European Union Safe Harbor Privacy Principles. Among other requirements, adherence involves engaging an independent third party to resolve privacy disputes. If you are a European consumer and feel your privacy dispute or complaint has not been adequately resolved, the EU Data Protection Authorities has been contracted by Pro-softnet Corp. to handle complaints that allege a failure to comply with the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles.

Law Enforcement; Subpoenas
Pro-softnet Corp. may disclose Personal Data, including the data you back up with the Service, with or without notice (a) if required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order, (b) where required by law, or (c) at our sole discretion, where we deem it necessary to protect the safety of any individual or the general public or to prevent violation of our User Agreement or the rights of Pro-softnet Corp. or any third party.

Pro-softnet Corp. And its Affiliates
Although Pro-softnet Corp. currently operates as an independent corporation incorporated in the USA, any subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (collectively, "affiliates"), it may in the future, Pro-softnet Corp. may share some or all of your Personal Data with these affiliates, in which case it will require our affiliates to honor this Privacy Policy.

Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership, or a direct merger or acquisition with another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of Pro-softnet Corp. User information, including Personal Data, to a separate entity. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you (by posting on our website or an email to the email address you provide when you register) of any change in ownership, merger or acquisition of Pro-softnet Corp. assets by a third party, and you may choose to modify any of their registration information at that time.

Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide personal information to Pro-softnet Corp., or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Pro-softnet Corp. uses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected.

For sensitive personal information, Pro-softnet Corp. will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly (opt-in) consent to the disclosure of the information to a non-agent third party or the use of the information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the individual.

Where Pro-softnet Corp. has knowledge that an agent is using or disclosing personal information in a manner contrary to this Policy, Pro-softnet Corp. will take reasonable steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.

  4. SECURITY: Pro-softnet Corp. will take reasonable precautions to protect personal information in its possession from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
