The phrase “personal information” refers to information by which you or the device you are using to connect to the Internet can be identified.
We may obtain personal information about you from various sources, including this and other ODUSA websites, mobile applications, when you call or email us or communicate with us through social media, when you donate and/or purchase from us, or when you participate in events or other promotions. We also may obtain information about you from our parent, affiliate or subsidiary companies, business partners and other third parties.
In addition, when you visit an ODUSA website or use an ODUSA mobile application, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor‘s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, is used to transmit information back to a web server. We also may use first-party website analytics tools (such as Google Analytics, CrazyEgg, etc…), that collect information about visitor traffic on our sites and mobile applications as well third-party analytic tools (such as DoubleClick advertising cookies). The information we may collect by automated means includes:
Information about the devices our visitors use to access the Internet (such as the IP address and the device, browser and operating system type)
We may use the information we obtain about you to:
We may combine the information we collect with publicly available information and information we receive from our parent, affiliate or subsidiary companies, business partners and other third parties. We may use that combined information to enhance and personalize your shopping experience with us, to communicate with you about products, services and events that may be of interest to you, for other promotional purposes, and for other purposes described in this section. However, we will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected from Display Advertising features that is based on the DoubleClick cookie unless we have robust notice of, and your prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.
We also may use the information we obtain about you in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
On our websites, we may collect information about your online activities to provide advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests. You may see certain ads on this and other sites as well, as we may participate in advertising networks. Advertising networks allow us to target our advertising to users through demographic, behavioral and contextual means. This includes targeting based off of interests, geographic location, demographic, visitation and/or action of and on certain web pages and/or websites, and how if you are determined to be similar to a particular audience.
We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process (such as a court order), (ii) in response to a request by law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity. We also reserve the right to transfer personal information we have about you in the event we sell, merge or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets. Following such a sale, merger or transfer, you may contact the entity to which we transferred your personal information with any inquiries concerning the processing of that information.
We offer you certain choices about what information we collect from you, how we use and disclose the information, and how we communicate with you. You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us or object at any time on legitimate grounds to the processing of your personal information. We will apply your preferences going forward. In some circumstances, withdrawing your consent to ODUSA’s use or disclosure of your personal information will mean that you cannot take advantage of certain ODUSA offerings or site features.
