Orsa Software Inc. (“Orsa”) is committed to protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy.

In general, you can visit Orsa on the Web without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. To the extent that you do provide information to us, Orsa will never sell, rent or disclose your personally identifiable information to outside parties for their own marketing purposes without your consent. Orsa may disclose information to third parties in order to provide Orsa products and services to you as further described in this policy.

Information We Collect or Track

Orsa collects personal information which is necessary for its dealings with the individuals to whom the information relates. The types of personal information Orsa collects will depend on the particular dealings we have with you. Primarily, we collect and hold personal information about existing and prospective customers, our suppliers, and employment applicants.

The types of personal information that we collect and hold about these individuals includes, but is not limited to, Personal identifiers, such as names and contact details (e.g. email address, phone number, etc.)

In addition, Orsa also collects public information identifying Professionals (Lawyers, Mediators, Parenting Coaches, and Psychologists) who offer services to the public, including Orsa software users.

Generally, Orsa collects personal information directly from the individuals concerned. Primarily this is through the individual filling out forms on our Web Sites, or through users of Orsa software completing and submitting information to us through the software registration process.

For users of iGuideline who have a subscription license, and who have optionally requested a detailed listing in the Find a Professional feature, Orsa also collects the personal information necessary for the listing of the user’s services through that feature. The user can request that their listing be removed or updated by contacting Orsa by email (contact@orsasoftware.com)

To allow you to purchase and download products; and
To ensure our compliance with export control and other applicable laws and regulations.

At times Orsa retains contractors to perform services for Orsa internally in the course of our business. Consequently, they may have access to information about our customers in providing those services. Such limited access would be available only to the extent needed to perform the services, under the terms of an executed confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement with Orsa, with the requirement that such contractors keep the information strictly confidential and use the information solely on Orsa’s behalf. Orsa does not collect sensitive personal information regarding customers.

Orsa takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information it discloses to third parties, including to its related entities, is protected from misuse and unauthorized disclosure.  Disclosure to any unrelated third party is subject to an executed confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement with Orsa.
