Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. As part of the operation and customization feature of ORIEL’s web site, we gather certain types of information from users, and we would like to explain the types of information we gather, what we do with them, and how to correct or change the information.
Information Collected By ORIEL
ORIEL collects two types of information from users: personal data such as zip code, email address and demographic information; and aggregated data such as information about traffic patterns on ORIEL (for example, how many users log on to ORIEL on a daily basis).
Aggregated information, such as which pages users visit, is collected through various means. One of these ways is through an IP address, a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” Web pages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from ORIEL, our servers log your IP address. ORIEL does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, so although your session will be logged, your session will remain anonymous to us. ORIEL collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration only.
Use of Information Collected by ORIEL
ORIEL uses both the personal and aggregated information we collect for multiple purposes. The information is used to improve the content of the site, to customize the content and/or layout of the site for each individual user, target promotions on other sites and if requested, to provide information services by email to the user. After registration, users will receive a single email message confirming registration. ORIEL will never disclose your personally identifiable information to a third party unless required to do so by court order, law or governmental agency.
Information Security at ORIEL
ORIEL employees understand the need for user privacy and access to user data is strictly limited and can only be accessed by specific individuals who have the necessary username and password combination.
Links to Other Sites
It is important to note that ORIEL contains links to sites other than ORIEL, and that those sites may not follow the same privacy policies as ORIEL.
