If you desire to have access to certain restricted sections of the Site, you will be required to become a registered user, and to submit certain personally identifiable information to ServiceSpace. This happens in a number of instances, such as when you sign up for the Service, or if you desire to receive marketing materials and information.

Additional Information Your full user name and your photo, if you decide to upload one, are displayed to people in the ServiceSpace network and general public. Once a member, you may provide additional information in the profile section. Providing additional information beyond what is required at registration is entirely optional, but enables you to better identify yourself in the ServiceSpace system.
