Fourth World Privacy Policy

Fourth World Systems publishes software, and develops custom software and Web sites. We are not a mass-marketing company, and as such we never make any personal information you submit to this site available for sale to other companies.

Any information collected at this site is used solely for the purposes of Fourth World Media Corporation, and our partner companies such as Verisign who may require specific customer information to complete order processing. We never authorize any of our partners or contractors to use your information for any other purpose.

If you have chosen to purchase or inquire about our products or services, we may from time to time send you email about special offers or upgrades. Our clients and customers can tell you that we keep the volume of such email very low (just a couple times a year on average). If you prefer not to receive such email from us just let us know by sending an email to with the word "remove" in the subject line.

To be perfectly frank, we find it disappointing that so many companies who sell products and services online also act as mass-marketing companies, selling your email address and other personal information to anyone who's willing to pony up the cash.

We offer our Privacy Policy as a challenge for all other online companies:

Stick to what you do, do it well, and stop the practice of selling customer information to strangers. If you can't be profitable sticking with your core business and need to also sell your customers' personal information to remain viable, maybe it's time to rethink your business plan.

The sale of customer information to other companies is a significant contributing factor to the ever-growing volume of unsolicited commercial email (commonly called "spam"). Last year alone spam cost ISPs more than US$7 billion, and the aggregate cost to global industries is many times that. We know there are many more legitimate ways to spread the word about good products and services, and hope that by working together we may one day see an end to spam.

If you have questions about this Privacy Policy or about how your email address or other personal information may be used by us, please send an email to
