Types of Users / Access to the Services
You do not need to create an OOVA account (“Account”) to visit the public pages of the Services, however, you do need an Account to access certain Services that are only available to Users who have set up an Account (“Registered Users”).
There are two types of Registered Users:
Information We Collect
How We Use and Disclose Your Information
Anonymized and Aggregated Statistical Data.
OOVA may also remove personal identifiers from Personal Information and maintain it in anonymous and aggregate form that may later be combined with other information to generate anonymized and aggregated statistical information. OOVA may share, publicly or privately, anonymized and aggregated statistical information from the Services. If OOVA shares anonymized and aggregated statistical information, then it will do so in a manner that no specific individual can be identified by its use. Anonymized and aggregated statistical information may be displayed on the Services as part of collaborative learning.
Disclosures to Third Parties Assisting in Our Operations.
OOVA may disclose Personal Information to a third party that works with, or on behalf of, OOVA to provide resources or services (for example, packaging, sending, or delivering a purchase or information to you, or clearing a credit card transaction). These companies may use your Personal Information to assist OOVA in performing our operations. These companies have access to your Personal Information only to perform these tasks on our behalf, and do not have any independent right to share this information.
Disclosures Under Special Circumstances.
OOVA may be required to disclose your Personal Information to respond to a subpoena, a court order, legal process, or a governmental regulation, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims. In addition, OOVA may disclose your Personal Information to a third party that is assisting us in conducting an investigation about unauthorized activity that constitutes a violation of the policies for using the Services, or when circumstances dictate the need to protect or defend our rights or property. We may also disclose your Personal Information if we believe it is necessary to share that information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or as otherwise required by law.
Business Transfers. We may share your Personal Information with other business entities in connection with the sale, assignment, merger, or other transfer of all or a portion of OOVA’s business to such business entity.
You may control the way in which your devices permit the use of Tracking Technologies. If you so choose, you may block or delete our cookies from your browser; however, blocking or deleting cookies may cause some of the Services, including any portal features and general functionality, to work incorrectly.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you may be able to configure your browser settings to use the Services without some cookie functionality. You can delete cookies manually or set your browser to automatically delete cookies on a pre-determined schedule. For example, in the Internet Explorer menu bar, select: Tools > Internet Options > Browsing History > Delete to view manual and automatic options.
We may also use Flash cookies (also known as “persistent identification elements” or “local shared objects”) on certain pages. Because Flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings, you may click here to adjust your preferences. You can also identify Flash cookies running on your computer by visiting the Flash Player folder. Flash cookies, or LSO files, are typically stored with a “.SOL” extension. Please note that if you block cookies, some functions otherwise available on the Services may be unavailable, and we may not be able to present you with personally-tailored content.
If you have questions regarding the specific information about you that we process or retain, as well as your choices regarding our collection and use practices, please contact us using the information listed below.
In addition to using cookies, the Services may employ "pixel tracking," which is a common process used in connection with advertisements and/or internal tracking. Pixel tracking involves the use of pixel tags, an invisible tag that is placed on various pages of a website that tracks a User's activity. Pixel tags are not visible to Users and consist of a few lines of computer code. Pixel tracking measures the effectiveness of advertisements by compiling aggregate and specific usage statistics. OOVA may access pixel tags to identify the activities and interests of Users that better enables us to match products, services, and offers to the User's interests and needs. For example, if a User visits the Services as a result of an advertisement on a third-party website, then the pixel tag will allow the advertiser to track that its advertisement brought the User to the Services. If a User visits the Services or other online system operated by OOVA, and the User is linked to another website, then OOVA also is able to determine that the User was sent to and/or interacted with a third-party website. This data is collected for OOVA’s own marketing and research use.

We use commercially reasonable security measures that we believe are reasonably designed to protect Personal Information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. Please note, however, that any information you send to us electronically, while using the Services or otherwise interacting with us, may not be secure when it is transmitted to us. We recommend that you do not use unsecure channels to communicate sensitive or confidential information to us. Please be aware though that, despite our best efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and we cannot guarantee “perfect security.” Any information you send us through any means is transmitted at your own risk.
Response to "Do Not Track" Signals
Your browser settings may also allow you to transmit a “Do Not Track” signal when you visit various websites. Like many websites, our website is not designed to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from browsers. To learn more about “Do Not Track” signals, you can visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com/.
