Your privacy is critically important to us. At Osage Industries we have a few fundamental principles:
· We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
· We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, maintain our web or social media presence, or protect our rights.
· We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of our services.
· In our blogs, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.
Like most website operators, Osage Industries collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Osage Industries’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Osage Industries’ visitors use its website.
Osage Industries also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs or social media sites. Osage Industries only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Osage Industries’ website choose to interact with Osage Industries in ways that require Osage Industries to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Osage Industries gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up to receive our newsletter to provide a username and email address. Osage Industries collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Osage Industries. Osage Industries does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Osage Industries discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Osage Industries’ behalf or to provide services available at Osage Industries’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Osage Industries’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Osage Industries will not rent, lease, or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Osage Industries discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Osage Industries believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Osage Industries, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of Osage Industries’ website and have supplied your email address, Osage Industries may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Osage Industries and our products. We primarily use our product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Osage Industries takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Osage Industries, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Osage Industries goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Osage Industries may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
