Inspiration Software, Inc. (“Inspiration”) is committed to protecting your privacy when you use our web site and any services or materials available on the site (the "Site"). This Online Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time, governs this Site. It does not govern any other web site from which you may gain access to this Site or any web sites linked to. For those sites, please see their Privacy Policy.



Any information that identifies or can be used to indentify the person to whom such information pertains (“Personal Information”) that we collect and maintain will be subject to this Privacy Policy, as amended from time to time. Inspiration may change this Privacy Policy in its sole discretion and will provide notice of changes in the Privacy Policy and on the Site's home page. If you have objections to the Privacy Policy, you should immediately discontinue use of the Site. Inspiration will not change any preferences you expressly communicate that limit how your personal information will be used without your consent. However, you will be deemed to have been made aware of, and will be subject to the changes to the Privacy Policy after Inspiration has posted the notice of changes in the Privacy Policy and on the Site's home page.



When you use the Site, we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself by filling out and submitting a form or a field on the Site. This information might include your first and last name, mailing address, country of residence, e-mail address, telephone or facsimile number, school affiliation, work address, an account password and other information. It is optional for you to provide this information, however, in some cases Inspiration (or another third party’s access link) may require that you provide certain mandatory information about you in order for you to use the Site. If you do not provide this information with respect to that particular access to or use of the Site you will not be able to gain access or use them. Or, if you wish to delete your information and the information is mandatory, then you may no longer be able to gain access or use them.

To help evaluate your use of the Site, Inspiration may collect information about your computer which may include among other information, its operating system, CPU speed, Internet Protocol (IP) address, referring or exit web pages and browser type. Inspiration will use this information to measure your use of the Site to support, evaluate and enhance your user experience. We do not match or link this information with any other information held by Inspiration without your prior consent.

Cookies, web beacons and similar tracking devices

Inspiration may use cookies, web beacons or other devices to track your use of the Site (e.g. types of services or materials used, number of uses or downloads, number of users of the Site, etc.) and our web servers will automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer. This information is collected in aggregate form only, without identifying any user individually. Inspiration may use this aggregated information for improving and enhancing the Site and for statistical analysis. It is not Inspiration’s practice to use this information for any other purposes or to identify any user personally, however, where you have expressly provided consent for the Site to "remember" the unique identifier that you select when you register your account, that unique identifier will be stored on a cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be linked to your registration information.

For your information and understanding, a cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. It serves as your ID card and enables the web server that gave it to you to record your passwords and preferences. A web beacon is a small gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. Similar devices can be embedded in the services or materials to send data to a web server when a set of user-initiated events occur, as when a user clicks on one or more buttons to initiate an action, direction or response on the Site.

Most browsers default to allow or accept cookies, and most products and services that include similar devices also default to activate or allow the collection of data. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the option to decide whether or not to accept it (however, some web pages, including those that may be contained in web sites linked to this Site, may require an authorization and may not grant you the option of choosing not to accept cookies or similar devices and will likely not allow you to access those pages or any related products or services).

You are also advised that some products and services, including some of the services and materials on this Site may allow document authors to restrict access to documents, track access to or use of those documents, or involve transmission of data over the Internet to verify authenticity of authors, recipients and documents. Where this type of tracking is not obvious to you, the software and/or services license or terms of use, pop-ups or notifying e-mail will inform you of these features and of any options available to you to disable the features.

Inspiration Services and Materials from other Affiliated Sites and Applications

We may offer some of our services and materials on or through other third party web sites or applications ("APPS"). Any personal information that you provide to those third parties in order to use our services and materials may be sent to Inspiration in order to deliver the services and materials. We process this information under this Privacy Policy. However, any affiliated third party sites (including any school or other web site that may provide access to this Site) or APPS through which our services or materials may be offered or accessed, may use their own cookies, web beacons and tracking devices, etc. to monitor, view or log your use of their site, APPS, the services, the materials and or any of your information or any content you input. Any information you provide or input on any affiliated third party site (including any school or other web site that may provide access to this Site) or APPS and how it may be processed or used by that third party is governed by their privacy policy. Inspiration encourages you to read their privacy policy before providing any of your information or inputting any content. In addition, Inspiration may make third party APPS available through its Site. The information collected by Inspiration when you enable an Inspiration application is processed under this Privacy Policy. Any of your information collected by the third party APPS provider when you enable their application is governed by their privacy policy.


Inspiration only shares user information with other companies or individuals outside or our company in the following limited circumstances:

  • When we have your consent.
  • We may provide such information to our affiliated companies or other trusted businesses or persons for the purpose of processing personal information on our behalf to support, maintain or enhance your use of the Site. Inspiration requires that these parties agree to process such information based on our instructions and in compliance with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.
  • When we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure or such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable government request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Inspiration, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.
  • We may share with third parties certain pieces of "aggregated, non-personal information" such as the number of users who use our Site. "Aggregated, non-personal information" means information that is recorded about users and collected into groups so that it no longer reflects or is references any identifiable user. Any such information will not identify any user individually.


Except in particular circumstances described in this Privacy Policy, or where required by law, regulation, litigation, national security or law enforcement, Inspiration will not provide any user’s name or account information to any non-Inspiration Software employee without that user's consent.

Account User: As a registered WebspirationPRO "Account User" (registered, non-trial account holder) you have the right at all times to access and correct your personal information and privacy preferences. Registration information may be edited or corrected by clicking "My Account Settings" on the WebspirationPRO personal starter screen, or you can edit and correct your personal information by writing to Inspiration at:


Inspiration Software, Inc.
9400 SW Beaverton-Hillsdale Hwy, Suite 300

If an Account User provides Inspiration with inconsistent privacy preferences (e.g. indicating on one occasion that they may be contacted with respect to communications from Inspiration and on another that they may not be contacted with respect to such communications) Inspiration will update its records with the latest communicated preference in a timely and accurate manner.

Trial Account User: As a WebspirationPRO trial account user (“Trial User”) Inspiration will honor the privacy preferences you set up when you created your trial account.


Inspiration collects user information to support, facilitate and enhance your use of the Site. We also collect and process this information for auditing, research and analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our Site or, where any user has consented to our doing so, to deliver troubleshooting advice, tips and a notice of when a subscription will expire. When any user signs up for an account the information is also logged to register their rights to tech support and other benefits made available from time to time. Except where prohibited by law or where the user has opted to not receive these communications, we also use your personal information to track your use and preferences and to keep you informed about WebspirationPRO Site and service upgrades. If we propose to use any user information for any purposes other than those described in this Privacy Policy and/or in any specific privacy notices given to you, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes.



Inspiration classifies any personal information that you submit and provide in connection with creating an account on the Site as "Registration Information." Registration Information is protected in the following ways:

(a) Access by users to their Registration Information is available only through a password and unique user identifier selected by you and the password is encrypted. (Inspiration strongly advises that users not share their password and only their unique User name with people they know that they want to collaborate with or have review specified documents.)

(b) Registration Information resides on secure servers that only selected Inspiration personnel and contractors have access to via password. These personnel and contractors are bound under strict confidentiality agreements with Inspiration prohibiting disclosure or use of the Registration Information other than for its intended purposes as contemplated by this Privacy Policy.

(c) Inspiration encrypts user's user name and password information as it is transferred to Inspiration’s secure cloud servers thereby taking reasonable measures to prevent unauthorized parties for viewing, disclosing or using such information.

(d) Financial data is never stored by Inspiration and is encrypted when transmitted to the banking entity. If you opt to purchase subscriptions using monthly payment you authorize the banking entity to maintain the information necessary to do so.

Any personal documents or data created and stored as part of your WebspirationPRO account use resides on Inspiration’s secure cloud servers and is accessible only by you when logged in, by those account holders you choose to collaborate with and by selected Inspiration personnel and contractors with access to it via password. This Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use bind these personnel and contractors under strict confidentiality agreements with Inspiration prohibiting disclosure or use of this information other than for its intended purpose.

Inspiration strongly encourages users not to share any of their account information with anyone you do not personally know and trust.


Users and Account Users of the Site acknowledge and agree that if Inspiration sells or assigns assets (or the assets of any division or subsidiary) to another entity, or Inspiration (or a division or subsidiary) is acquired by or merged with another entity, Inspiration may provide to such entity customer information that is related to that part of our business that was sold to, assigned to, or merged with the other entity without obtaining your further consent, but Inspiration will provide notice of such asset sales, assignments, acquisitions, or mergers on the Site.


Any information that any Account User posts to the WebspirationPRO Support Forum is governed by the Welcome message on the forum that explains the rules and how to use the forum. Please review the Welcome message before posting to the forum.
