Collection of your Personal Information
Users that register for the OCHO newsletter voluntarily provide us with contact information (such as name and e-mail address). We may use this information for specific, limited purposes. You may always “opt out,” either now or at any time in the future, if you do not wish to receive our messages.
OCHO uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer www.ocho.org, and for statistical metrics used to track website visitor traffic.
Use of your Personal Information
We use your personal information to provide you with a personalized service; to send e-mail newsletters to you; to answer your requests; to process your subscriber status; etc. You may choose to opt out at any time, which will cease all communications from us.
OCHO does not sell, rent or lease its subscriber list to third parties. OCHO does not provide, sell, or rent email addresses to anyone outside the organization.
OCHO does not collect or use sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations.
OCHO encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from OCHO so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. OCHO is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the OCHO and OCHO family of Web sites.
The OCHO Web site use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you choose a default language or subscribe to our newsletter, a cookie helps OCHO to recall your specific information on subsequent visits – when you return to the same OCHO Web site, this information that you previously provided can be retrieved.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the OCHO services or Web sites you visit.
