THE PRIVACY POLICY FOR NATIONALAPPCENTER.COM

Effective as of August 2, 2006

XAP Corporation ("XAP"), the company that operates NationalAppCenter.com, has adopted the following privacy policy for the information collected at this website.

As NationalAppCenter.com evolves, we may update this privacy policy to reflect changes in the manner in which we deal with personal information, whether to comply with then-applicable regulations and self-regulatory standards or otherwise. The privacy policy posted here will always be current. We encourage you to review this statement regularly.

WHAT THIS PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT COVERS:

NATIONALAPPCENTER.COM PRIVACY POLICY AND ITS EXCEPTIONS
Except as set forth below, personally identifiable data you enter on NationalAppCenter.com is not made available or distributed to third parties, except with your express consent or at your express direction. In particular, NationalAppCenter.com and XAP will not give, sell or provide access to your personal information to any company, individual or organization for its use in marketing or commercial solicitation or for any other purpose, except with your express consent, at your direction, as is necessary for the operation of this site, or pursuant to one of the exceptions listed below.

EXCEPTIONS TO THE PRIVACY POLICY
There are limited exceptions to the NationalAppCenter.com privacy policy. When required by law to comply with any valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, regulation or court order, XAP will supply such information contained in your NationalAppCenter.com account as XAP reasonably determines, based on the advice of counsel, it is legally required to supply. In addition, XAP may release specific information relevant to special cases, such as a physical threat to you or others or an attempted breach of security on the NationalAppCenter.com site.

THE PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION WE COLLECT
NationalAppCenter.com collects personal identifying information from you including, but not limited to, your name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, telephone number, grade level, parent's contact information, Social Security number, such additional information as you choose to include in your user profile or are required to provide by the college and financial aid applications that you choose to complete, and information associated with activities you have undertaken on NationalAppCenter.com.

REASONS WE COLLECT YOUR PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
NationalAppCenter.com collects personal information from you primarily for three reasons. The first reason is to perform a task on NationalAppCenter.com, such as filling out a specific college admission application, requested by you. The second reason is to enable you to submit in a convenient and efficient manner information that is likely to be needed when you complete college admission, financial aid and other applications and forms made available through NationalAppCenter.com or undertake a scholarship search on NationalAppCenter.com, and the third reason is to enable XAP to respond to your questions or contact you when necessary in connection with the functioning of NationalAppCenter.com. When the effective functioning of a NationalAppCenter.com module does not require personal information, none is collected, and any such module can be accessed without opening an account or providing any personal data.

When you log on to NationalAppCenter.com, your browser will automatically transmit to NationalAppCenter.com's server the IP address of your computer and type of browser you are using. Although your browser transmits the IP address of your computer, NationalAppCenter.com does not associate this IP address with any personally identifiable information regarding you. NationalAppCenter.com does not collect any personally identifiable information other than what users submit and their browsers transmit.

MINIMUM AGE OF 13 REQUIRED TO ESTABLISH AN ACCOUNT
NationalAppCenter.com will not collect any information from persons who are not yet 13 years old. If you are under 13 years of age, you are not authorized to create an account on NationalAppCenter.com, but you can utilize those portions of NationalAppCenter.com that do not involve the collection of personal information from users.

If you are 13 years of age or older, you are encouraged to create an account on NationalAppCenter.com and to utilize all of NationalAppCenter.com, which will help you plan, prepare and pay for your future education.

WAYS IN WHICH PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION MAY BE USED
NationalAppCenter.com will use your personal identifying information to complete the following forms and surveys, to obtain information for you and to effect transactions on your behalf, in each case only upon your instructions to do so:

Your personal identifying information may also be used for the following purposes:

WITH WHOM PERSONAL IDENTIFYING INFORMATION MAY BE SHARED
Any time you request that we perform a task that involves a transfer of data, the data related to the performance of that task will be made available to a recipient you designate or to a service provider assisting us in completing that task. For example:

Note: If you begin an application for admission to a college or other educational institution, your name and other data entered on that application may be provided to the admissions office of that institution, even though you have not yet submitted a completed application to that institution.

SECURITY MEASURES TO PREVENT MISUSE OF INFORMATION ENTRUSTED TO NationalAppCenter.com
NationalAppCenter.com causes the data you input to be encrypted when in route between your browser and the NationalAppCenter.com server and when in route between the NationalAppCenter.com server and some other browser or server. This practice helps prevent unauthorized third parties from intercepting and gaining access to your private data during transmission over the Internet. NationalAppCenter.com uses 128-bit, Secure Socket Layer encryption supported by current browsers.

Data residing on the NationalAppCenter.com server is password protected, and access is provided only to the account holder who created the password, anyone to whom that account holder entrusted the password, and those employees of XAP who require such access to administer and maintain the NationalAppCenter.com system or to provide requested customer support to users of NationalAppCenter.com. Each XAP employee who has access to the data residing on the NationalAppCenter.com server has agreed in writing to respect the privacy of all such personal data.

These sites and resources have privacy policies that may differ from that of NationalAppCenter.com, and for your protection, we recommend that you read and understand the privacy policy at any website prior to providing personal information on that website. XAP is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any websites to which NationalAppCenter.com links or for the conduct of persons operating those websites.

Similarly, when accessed over NationalAppCenter.com, information that has been updated or otherwise modified will appear in its then-most current form, rather than in the form in which it may have been submitted at some earlier time.

AMENDING THIS PRIVACY POLICY
XAP may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Unless legal obligations require faster implementation, if XAP makes any substantial changes to this Privacy Policy concerning use of your personal information XAP will notify you by posting a message on the NationalAppCenter.com homepage for at least thirty days. Thereafter, the new privacy policy will apply to all data previously submitted or subsequently submitted to NationalAppCenter.com, unless such use if prohibited by law.
