Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities (OOD) is committed to protecting your privacy and developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the OOD site and governs data collection and usage. By using the OOD site, you consent to the data practices described in this Statement.
Collection of your Personal Information
OOD may collect personally identifiable information, such as your email address, name, home or work address, or telephone number. OOD also collects anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, preferences, interests, and favorites.
There is also information about your computer hardware and software that is automatically collected by OOD. This information can include your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times, and referring website addresses. This information is used by OOD for the operation of the service, to maintain the quality of the service, and to provide general statistics regarding the use of the OOD site.
Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through OOD’s website or public message boards, this information may be collected and used by others. Note: OOD does not read any of your private online communications.
OOD encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from OOD so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. OOD is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the OOD Web site.
Use of your Personal Information
OOD collects and uses your personal information to operate the OOD Web site and deliver the requested services. OOD also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from OOD and its affiliates. OOD may also contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion of current services or of potential new services that may be offered.
OOD does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. OOD may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (email, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party. In addition, OOD may share data with trusted partners to help us perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, provide customer support, or arrange for deliveries. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these services to OOD, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
OOD does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, such as race, religion, or political affiliations, without your explicit consent.
OOD keeps track of the websites and pages our customers visit within OOD to determine what OOD services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within OOD to individuals whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.
OOD Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on OOD or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of OOD; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of OOD, or the public.
The OOD Web site uses "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 personalize OOD pages or interact with the OOD site or services, a cookie helps OOD to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same OOD Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the OOD features that you customized.
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 OOD services or Web sites you visit.
Security of your Personal Information
OOD secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. OOD secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
Changes to this Statement
OOD will occasionally update this Statement of Privacy to reflect company and customer feedback. OOD encourages you to periodically review this Statement to be informed of how OOD is protecting your information.
OOD welcomes your comments regarding this Statement of Privacy. If you believe OOD has not adhered to this Statement, please contact OOD at firstname.lastname@example.org, 400 East Campus View Blvd., Columbus, Ohio 43235, and 614-438-1477.
