Your privacy and security are our top concerns. We know that without these we cannot earn your trust and deliver the vibrant community experience we envisage for Xuropa.
Under-pinning all of work are the following key principles:
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this statement and our practices, please let us know directly by email at email@example.com.
To further save you time, we have provided an import tool that brings your LinkedIn profile over to your Xuropa Profile - phew!
Information about your Contacts
Cookies & Log Files:
There are two types of cookies that we use, "persistent" and "session". A persistent cookie is set once you have signed in to your Xuropa account. The next time you visit the Xuropa platform, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing user so you will not need to log in before using the service. In order to access or change any of your private information (like a credit card number), however, you must log in securely again with your password even if your computer contains your persistent cookie. Additionally, if you log out of the Xuropa site you will need to re-enter your password the next time you visit in order to log in to your account. A session cookie is used to identify a particular visit to the Xuropa site. Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your web browser.
Standard Internet-based Information Exchange
Determined by the standards used to implement the internet itself, the Xuropa platform automatically receives other types of information when you visit. For example, we receive the URL of the site from which you came and the site to which you are going when you leave Xuropa. We also receive the Internet protocol (IP) address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), your computer operating system and type of web browser you are using, as well as the name of your ISP. We use this information to improve the Xuropa service. The linkage between your IP address and your personally identifiable information is never shared with third-parties without your permission or except when required by law.
Xuropa is an online service dedicated to achieving two objectives:
1. To assist professionals in finding and learning about new software technology.
2. To help enterprise software vendors more effectively engage their marketplace.
In order to achieve these two objectives, the information that you choose to provide that would identify you personally is used to help you describe yourself and your products or services to others. We also use this information to better craft your experience and make the utilization of the platform more effective for you. Other information, such as usage patterns, etc. are collected by Xuropa and is exclusively owned by Xuropa Inc.
We may send you promotional information, unless you decide to opt out of receiving such emails. In addition, Xuropa will send you notification emails related to the proper functioning of your account.
Sharing Information With Third Parties:
Within your "public profile" settings there is an option to include or exclude your email address from web pages that are openly viewable. If excluded, your email address will not be shown publicly, however, Xuropa does not warrant how third-party search engines will update and maintain their cache.
We may provide aggregated data about the usage of our services to third-parties for such purposes as we deem, in our sole discretion, to be appropriate. We may segment our users by field, domain of expertise, title specialization, geographic location, or company.

Accessing and Changing Your Account Information
In order to secure your personal information, access to your data on Xuropa is password-protected, and sensitive data (such as credit card information) is protected by SSL encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and our web site. To protect any data you store on our servers we will regularly audit our system for possible vulnerabilities and attacks and we use a tier-one secured-access data center.
The Xuropa Platform is a professional environment. As such, people under the age of 18 are not eligible to use our service.
