Terms of Use

PRIVACY NOTICE FOR THE OECP WEBSITE

The OECP has created this privacy notice to explain how we use information that you may provide while visiting our website and to demonstrate our firm commitment to Internet privacy. The OECP may modify this policy from time to time so we encourage you to check back when revisiting this website.

The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for this website. The type and amount of information received depends on how you use the site.

Website Usage/Information Collection
When you visit the OECP website, we automatically obtain information from you about the name of your Internet service provider, the browser and type of computer you are using, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request and the date and time of those requests. We use this information on an aggregate basis to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of the site to our visitors. For example, we use this information to track which pages are most popular among visitors as a whole. We do not track the pages you or any individual visitor may look at during a visit to our site and we do not collect any other information without your knowledge and permission. We do not collect or store personally identifiable information, such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number, unless you provide that information.

The OECP website uses a cookie for measuring aggregate web statistics, including number of monthly visitors, number of repeat visitors, most popular web pages and other information. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive containing information about the user. OECP will also use cookies to facilitate your online visit by maintaining data that you provide for online activism activities so that you will not need to resubmit certain information. The OECP does not use cookies to track what specific pages an individual site visitor views.

OECP's Sharing of Personally Identifiable Information
The OECP may exchange limited personally identifiable information (such as name and e-mail address) with partner organizations when people correspond with the OECP.

The OECP website will not post your personal contact information, including e-mail address, street address and phone numbers, without your consent. Without such consent, website staff will withhold posting personal contact information for that individual.

Opting Out of E-mail Lists
People who subscribe to e-mail lists via the website will receive periodic updates from the OECP by regular mail, fax or e-mail. You may opt out of receiving future information via e-mail by using the unsubscribe procedure specified on the e-mail message or by sending an e-mail message with the name of the list you are a member of to:
webmaster@OECP.org.

Outside Links
This site contains hypertext links to other sites. The OECP is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site, and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this website.

Security
All user information is restricted in our offices. All employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices. Finally, the servers that store sensitive information are kept in a secure environment.

If you send us an e-mail, you should know that e-mail is not necessarily secure against interception. So, if your communication includes sensitive information like your bank account, charge card, or social security number, contact us by mail or by telephone rather than by e-mail.

Corrections/Updating Personal Information:
