What information do you collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our site, place an order, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey, or fill out a form. Any data we request that is not required will be specified as voluntary or optional.
When ordering or registering on our site, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, and any other relevant information required for us to share and present our information to our customers. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.
What do you use the information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To personalize your experience
- To improve our website
- To improve customer service
- To process transactions
- To send periodic emails

- To alert you to product upgrades, special offers, updated information, and other new services
How do you protect information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you submit a request, place an order or enter, submit, or access your personal information.
These security measures include: password-protected directories and databases to safeguard your information, SSL (Secure Sockets Layered) technology to ensure that your information is fully encrypted and sent across the Internet securely, and PCI Scanning to actively protect our servers from hackers and other vulnerabilities.
We use a secure server, so all supplied sensitive/credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our Payment gateway providers database only to be accessible by those authorized with special access rights to such systems.
After a transaction, your private information (credit cards, social security numbers, financials, etc.) will not be stored on our servers.
Yes. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser that enables the sites’ or service providers’ systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. This helps the site remember user preferences and create a more personalized experience.
Do you disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to parties not relevant to our business or the purpose of data collected to for your service. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
We may disclose your personal information, without notice, if required to do so by law or in the belief that such action is necessary to:
- Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on the site
- Protect and defend the rights or property of and its family of websites
- Act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of its websites, or the public
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still use most of the website. However, you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you decide to register, you will be able to select the kinds of information you want to receive from us by subscribing to various services, like our electronic newsletters, product brochures, and trial subscriptions to platform portals. If you do not want us to communicate with you about other offers regarding products, programs, events, or services by email, postal mail, or telephone, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing messages.
Procurewise occasionally allows other companies to offer our registered customers information about their products and services, using postal mail only. If you do not want to receive these offers, you may select the option stating that you do not wish to receive marketing materials from third parties.
We will provide you with the means to ensure your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at any time at the Visitor Center. There, you can:
- View and edit the personal information you have already given us
- Tell us whether you want to receive marketing information
- Tell us whether you want third parties to send you their offers by postal mail
- Sign up for electronic newsletters about our services and products
You can access Procurewise and its services from several third-party websites (in the form of plug-ins, add-ins, etc). When you do so, you are thereby subject to the policies of that site regarding privacy and data collection and you should read those sites’ privacy policies to make sure you agree to them before usage. Procurewise does not collect, transmit, or process data from any plug-ins such as the:
- Office 365 Outlook Add-in
- Desktop Outlook Plug-in
- Windows Plug-in
- Google Chrome Plug-in
- Gmail Add-on
Electronic Product Registration
When you buy and install a new product, we may ask you to register your purchase electronically. When you do, we merge your registration information with any information you’ve already provided (we call that information your personal profile). If you haven’t previously registered with us, we create a personal profile for you from your product registration information. If you ever want to review or update that information, you can visit the Profile Center, click on Update Profile, and edit any of the Personal Information in your profile. If you haven’t already created a Registration ID, we will ask you to do so. This ensures that only you can access your information.
As mentioned above, every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie. This code is uniquely yours and acts as your passport to travel across website, allowing you to download free software, order free newsletters, and visit premium sites without having to fill out registration forms with information you’ve already provided. Even if you switch computers, you won’t have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.
