WinShareSoft lets you visit the Site without revealing any personal information about yourself. We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies (personal information) you. WinShareSoft requests personal information from our users at several different points on our Web site. If you choose to provide personal information, and give us permission, only then we will use this information to send you communication, including informative emails/newsletters about product upgrades, product updates, new products, services; to provide you special offers that may be of interest to you and may include paid advertisements from third parties.
WinShareSoft is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement.

WinShareSoft collects personal information that can be divided into the following categories:
Esellerate's cookies are used only to identify the customer, not to identify any specific customer traits. This allows esellerate to maintain consistency in the shopping cart and enable a more pleasant shopping experience
We do keep track of the domains from which you visit us on the World Wide Web, and log IP addresses for statistical purposes. We do this to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use to identify and analyze trends and the results of our marketing efforts, to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Site, and track users' movements. We will periodically share aggregate demographic information with our business partners. IP addresses are not linked to personal information.
With your permission, WinShareSoft will send you communication, including informative emails/newsletters about product upgrades, product updates, new products, and services. This communication is to provide you special offers that may be of interest to you, and may include paid advertisements from third parties.
From time-to-time WinShareSoft requests information from users via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested in the surveys is for aggregate use and does not identify the user. No cookies are used. Survey information is not sold, shared, or rented to any third party, and is used internally solely by WinShareSoft for purposes of improving the use and satisfaction of this site/products.

Our users are given the opportunity to 'opt-out' of having their information used for purposes not directly related to our site at the point where we ask for the information.
Esellerate requests information from the user on the order form, hosted on their Web server.
For example, the order form hosted on the esellerate Web server, has an 'opt-out' mechanism so users who buy a product from us, but don't want any marketing material, can keep their email address off of our lists.
Users who no longer wish to continue receiving our communication, including informative emails/newsletters about product upgrades, product updates, new products, services, special offers that may be of interest to you, and paid advertisements from third parties, may opt-out of receiving these communications in the following ways:
If we are going to use your personal information in a manner different from that stated at the time of collection we will notify you via email. You will have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner. In addition, if we make any material changes in our privacy practices that do not affect user information already stored in our database, we will post a prominent notice on our web site notifying users of the change. In some cases where we post the notice we will also email users, who have opted to receive communications from us, notifying them of the changes in our privacy practices.
