What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers that serve as that computer's "Internet Protocol" IP Address. When a visitor requests a page from any Web Site within the OPPL Network, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor's domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our Site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the OPPL Network, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not record e-mail addresses of the visitors
What are cookies?
How do you use single-pixel GIFs?
OPPL and its advertisers may use single-pixel GIF images, sometimes referred to as web bugs or web beacons, to count Web page accesses and gather some general statistical information. OPPL does not gather personal information through the use of these images. Our advertisers may use single-pixel GIFs that can track personal information from cookies that may have been previously placed on a user's computer by an advertiser.
What information do you collect when I register for something?
OPPL offers access to some services that are free but that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification of OPPL products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our clients. Our clients may send you promotional material that is related to the topic of the service for which you registered unless you have chosen not to receive it. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties.
What other information do you request?
We may also request your e-mail address or mailing address for the purposes of conducting a survey or to provide additional services (for example, subscriptions to e-mail newsletters, announcement lists or information about seminars and events). Whenever we request the identity of a visitor, we will clearly indicate the purpose of the inquiry before the information is requested. We maintain a strict "No-Spam" policy that means that we do not intend to sell, rent, or otherwise give your e-mail address to a third-party, without your consent. We may from time to time send e-mail announcing new OPPL products and services. Except as stated above, OPPL will not send you email that you have not agreed to receive. If you choose to supply your postal address in an online form, you may receive mailings from other third party companies. When you sign up for an OPPL contest or other promotion, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
What information do you collect when I purchase something?
If you are purchasing something from OPPL, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, billing address and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status. We may also use this information to notify you of other related products and services. Credit card and e-mail information will not be shared or sold to third parties for any purpose without your express permission. Our shopping cart feature safeguards this information by using industry standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information.
Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?
OPPL will disclose personal information and/or an IP address, when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
1. Conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on OPPL,
2. Protect and defend the rights or property of the OPPL network of Websites and related properties, or visitors to the OPPL network of Websites and related properties,
3. Identify persons who may be violating the law, the OPPL Legal Notice, our copyrights, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the OPPL network or its related properties,
4. Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities.
OPPL uses reasonable precautions to keep the information disclosed to us secure. OPPL reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of OPPL's capital stock or assets. Furthermore, we are not responsible for any breach of security or for any actions of any third parties that receive the information. We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users. (See below: What else should I know about my privacy when online?)
