In the course of providing information and services to you, we may collect and/or maintain various pieces of your personal information which may include your name, home and work address, email address, phone number, company name, company address, title, education and work experience, credit card or account information, and information about your interests in and use of various products, programs, and services. We only collect your personal information if you voluntarily submit the information to us for such purposes as registering to use this Website, membership application or renewal, seminar registration, or requests for information or services. For your information, through certain technologies employed by this Website, we also collect non-personally identifiable information about you. For more details about this type of data collection, please refer to the section below on cookies.

To protect your security and privacy, we require that you enter the personal information that we collect before access is granted to this Website and that the information be current, although OASBO disclaims any legal duty to verify the accuracy of any personal data that you provide to OASBO. We will make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal data and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes. In certain jurisdictions you have the right to access information held about you. Your right of access can be exercised in accordance with relevant legislation and, unless prohibited by law, may be subject to a small fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. Please be aware that, to protect your security and privacy, OASBO may take reasonable steps to verify your identity prior to making changes to your personal information.

How We Use the Information We Collect and Who We Share It With

OASBO reserves the right to compile, save, use within the scope of our activities, and analyze any and all data (contact and personal data, use history, etc.) that we collect from you through this Website. We use the personal information that you provide to us for purposes such as responding to your requests for information or materials, publishing information about you on this Website, contacting you, providing our services to users, including the display of customized content; auditing, researching and analyzing in order to maintain, protect and improve our services; ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and developing new services. We may send you certain communications relating to the Website service, such as service announcements and administrative messages. If you do not want to receive such communications, or do not want us to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please refer to the section on opting in and out.

OASBO may share the personal information you provide to us only if we have a good faith belief that access, use, preservation or disclosure of such information is reasonably necessary to (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental 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 imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of this Website, its users or the public as required or permitted by law.

We may also collect and group demographic and preferences information, responses to surveys and other personal information that we collect from you into an aggregate form for disclosure to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties.

From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of this Website, such as how many visitors visit a specific page on this Website, how long they stay on that page and which hyperlinks, if any, they “click” on. We collect this information through the use of “cookies” and other tracking technologies, which are discussed in greater detail below in the section on cookies. We collect this information in order to determine which areas of this Website are most popular and to enhance this Website for visitors. As with other aggregated data, we may disclose such data to our existing or potential business partners, affiliates, sponsors or other third parties, but this aggregate data will in no way personally identify you or any other visitors to this Website.

Children’s Information and COPPA

OASBO does not knowingly collect personal information on children. The content of our website and the products and services available are not intended for, or directed to, children. If you are under 18 years of age, please do not use or access our website at any time or in any manner.

Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

A “cookie” is a piece of data stored on your hard drive containing non-personally identifiable information about you. We may use cookies in order to collect certain information about you, such as IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer), domain names (e.g., whether you are logged on from a .com, .gov, or .edu domain), and the type of computer and operating system being used. We may also use cookies to identify your computer when you revisit this Website, to recall your authentication information, or to track statistical information related to navigation throughout this Website. We may collect such information to better operate this Website so as to enhance your experience while using this Website, and to share with advertisers to provide you with a more personalized visit to this Website. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personal information while on this Website.

You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. You do not have to accept all cookies sent to you by this Website; however, depending on the particular cookie you reject, you may not be able to use some of the features of this Website.

We may also employ software technology known as “Web beacons” or “clear GIFs” which helps us keep track of what content on this Website is effective. Web beacons are small graphics with a unique identifier that are used to track the online movements of Internet users. Web beacons are embedded in the Web pages you review, so they are not stored on your hard drive. The Web beacons we use do not track or collect any personally identifiable information about you and they are in no way linked to your personally identifiable information.

Currently, (i) accept as otherwise expressly specified herein, other parties (e.g. third-party advertising networks and analytics providers) may not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our website or services, and (ii) we do not respond to, or take any specific action in connection with the receipt of, Do-Not-Track signals or other similar mechanisms regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services.

If you opt in, you may be added to our list of users who will receive promotional and marketing communications from us, our partners, and/or other third parties. If you initially opt in to receive such communications and you later decide that you no longer want to receive them, you may opt out of receiving promotional and marketing communications from us and/or our partners and other third parties by contacting OASBO at 8050 North High Street, Suite 170, Columbus, Ohio 43235 or communications@oasbo-ohio.org.

OASBO accepts no liability or responsibility for the content of third-party sites.

Security of Information and Disclosures

OASBO uses reasonable security measures to safeguard information concerning, and submitted by, users like you. Despite the security measures employed by OASBO, you should be aware that it is impossible to guarantee absolute security with respect to information sent through the Internet and any transmission of such information is at your own risk.

OASBO will, to the extent possible, control your personal information, and, except as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy or elsewhere on this Website, we will not disclose your personal information to third parties. Although we are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal information, if required by law, we reserve the right to disclose such information without first obtaining your consent.
