A. Overview

The Office Sage does not tolerate spam. Therefore, we strictly enforce an Anti-Spam Policy! That said, in order to operate THE OFFICE SAGE we must ask you to provide us information about yourself. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect and how we use that information.

If you apply for membership or purchase other goods or services using a credit card, you authorize THE OFFICE SAGE and the issuer of the credit card to exchange the information you provide in the application form or shopping cart. Your personal information regarding your credit account will be governed by the issuing bank’s privacy policy. THE OFFICE SAGE does not retain credit card numbers used to purchase memberships.

THE OFFICE SAGE takes the privacy of your personal information very seriously and will use your information only in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information or a list of our customers to third parties. However, as described in more detail in Part C below, there are limited circumstances in which some of your information will be shared with third parties, under very strict restrictions, so it is important for you to review this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy applies to all services that are hosted on the THE OFFICE SAGE Web sites.

Notification of Changes

This policy may be revised over time as new features are added to the THE OFFICE SAGE offerings or as we incorporate suggestions from our cardholders and providers. If we are going to use or disclose your personally identifiable information in a manner materially different from that stated at the time we collected the information, you will have a choice as to whether or not we use or disclose your information in this new manner. Any material changes will be effective only after we provide you by e-mail with at least 30 days’ notice of the amended Privacy Policy (if you no longer have a membership for any reason, you will not be contacted to notify you of the amended Policy and your personal information will not be used or disclosed in this new manner).

We will post the amended Privacy Policy prominently at this URL on our Web site so that you can always review what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone. Please check this Web site at any time for the most current version of our Privacy Policy.

Provider Web Sites and other pages on the THE OFFICE SAGE Web site include links to third party Web sites. These sites are governed by their own privacy statements, and THE OFFICE SAGE is not responsible for their operations, including but not limited to their information practices. Users submitting information to or through these third party Web sites should review the privacy statement of these sites before providing them with personally identifiable information.

A Special Note About Children

Children are not eligible to use THE OFFICE SAGE except through their parent’s membership and we ask that minors do not submit any personal information to us.

B. Information We Collect

Web Site Traffic Information

Because of the way that World Wide Web communication standards work, when you arrive at or leave the THE OFFICE SAGE Web site, we automatically receive the Web address of the site that you came from or are going to. We also collect information on which pages of our Web site you visit while you are on the THE OFFICE SAGE site, the type of browser you use and the times you access our Web site. We use this information to try to understand our customers’ preferences better and to manage the load on our servers, so as to improve our service and your experience with THE OFFICE SAGE. We do not track the Web sites that you visit before or after you leave the THE OFFICE SAGE site. If you object to this tracking please visit us from a fresh browser window and exit our site (after logging off if applicable) by closing your browser.

Our Use of “Cookies”

“Cookies” are small files of data that reside on your computer and allow us to recognize you as a THE OFFICE SAGE member or provider if you return to the THE OFFICE SAGE site using the same computer and browser. We send a “session cookie” to your computer if and when you log in to your THE OFFICE SAGE account by entering your User ID and Password. These cookies allow us to recognize you if you visit multiple pages in our site during the same session, so that you don’t need to re-enter your password multiple times. Once you log out or close your browser, these session cookies expire and no longer have any effect.

We may also use longer-lasting cookies to maintain your preferences or speed your use of our sign-in form. In addition, we may use cookies to process our referral program, described in Section C below. Our cookie files are encoded so that your information can only be interpreted by THE OFFICE SAGE. We may, however, share cookie information regarding whether or not a certain Member or Provider is already registered with THE OFFICE SAGE with certain third parties with whom we have an official co-marketing relationship.

Customer Service Correspondence

If you send us correspondence, including e-mails and faxes, we may retain such information in the records of your account. We will also retain customer service correspondence and other correspondence from THE OFFICE SAGE to you. We retain these records in order to measure and improve our customer service, and to investigate problems. We may, over time, delete these records if permitted by law.

Questionnaires, Surveys and Profile Data

From time to time, we may offer optional questionnaires and surveys to our users for such purposes as collecting demographic information or assessing users’ interests and needs. The use of the information collected will be explained in detail in the survey itself. If we collect personally identifiable information from our users in these questionnaires and surveys, the users will be given notice of how the information will be used prior to their participation in the survey or questionnaire.

C. Our Use and Disclosure of Information

Internet Address Information

We use IP addresses, browser types and access times to analyze trends, administer the site, improve site performance and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
