*Permission marketing means that when you submit a request form or register you agree that we and our partner companies may use the details you supply to decide which service offers may interest you most and then to get in touch with you about these offers using the contact information you have provided. OCONCO may, also use information about you from other suppliers to increase the content of your profile.
3. The collection of information.
Information about you will be collected initially when you submit your information. This information will be used to identify offers that may be of interest to you.
Through your inquiry there may be occasions where additional personal information is collected through surveys, questionnaires, offers or competitions. This information provided by you may be shared with our commercial partners that offer related services.
Some third party websites operate under different Privacy Policies. Should you choose one of these links that will be leaving an OCONCO site for a site over which we have no control and we therefore accept no liability once you have left one of our sites.
4. The use of information.
OCONCO works with many partners to deliver offers to you that we believe may be of interest given the information you have provided.
By submitting your information through any of our data collection methods, you are agreeing that you are happy for us and our partner companies to use your details to decide which offers may interest you most and then to get in touch with you about these offers, via post, e-mail, text or telephone regardless of your federal Do Not Call Status.
OCONCO may, from time to time, use third party suppliers to provide all or part of its service to you. OCONCO shall only be entitled to disclose such of your personal information as is necessary to enable them to provide the relevant service to you.
5. Managing your personal information.
OCONCO strongly supports the principles of ‘permission marketing’ and will only send communications from itself and its partners with your agreement.
When you first register with us you agree to receive communications using any or all of the contact information you provide including e-mails, postal communications, text and phone communications.
We hope you will enjoy the communications we send you, but if at any time you change your mind, you may withdraw these permissions AT ANY TIME by either:
- Sending an e-mail to email@example.com with “remove” in the subject line.
- Using the ‘unsubscribe’ link on any of the e-mail messages we send you.
If you prefer, you may change your mind or stop all further communication (there may be a short delay) by writing to: OCONCO 176 Brown St. Pittsfield, MA 01201. This is also the contact point if you have any complaint about our service.
If we do not hear otherwise from you, we will assume that the information you provide to us is accurate and up-to-date and we will continue to use the information to send you the communications you have requested.
Please note that OCONCO will act in accordance with local and federal laws and remove your permission as promptly as possible upon request. You may continue to receive communications for a short period of time whilst your removal request is being processed.
You have a right under the Data Protection Act 1998 to see what information we hold about you, subject to certain conditions.
Our websites may provide you with direct access to your contact details which you may update at any time but should you make an application to us in writing, we may ask you to provide us with sufficient information so that we can research your record of information. We cannot act on requests for access to personal data from third parties. We also reserve the right to make a small charge for providing you with the information you are requesting. If you would like to proceed with a request to see what data we hold about you, please write to OCONCO 176 Brown St. Pittsfield, MA 01201 USA
6. Security of your personal information.
When you give your personal data to OCONCO we will process that data in accordance with our responsibilities under the State and Federal Laws as well as other legislation if it is relevant.
We will keep your data safe and secure. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy and ensure the correct usage of information, we monitor and adjust our physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your personal data while in our care, or in the care of any outside suppliers with whom we may contract to process your data on our behalf.
Whilst we strive to protect your personal information, the internet is not a 100% secure medium for communication and, accordingly, OCONCO cannot guarantee the security of any information you send via the internet. OCONCO is not responsible for any loss or damage that you or others may suffer as a result of loss of confidentiality of such information.
It is your responsibility to ensure the security of your personal information and not to reveal this information to others if you are not willing to release such information.
7. Cookies, Tags and Web Beacons.
Cookies are small files of letters and numbers downloaded onto your computer when you access certain websites. Cookies unlock a computer’s memory allowing sites to recognize users when they return to a site. Like a key, a cookie itself does not contain information but when it is read by a browser it can help a website identify you and your requirements.
OCONCO also uses ‘web beacons’ as a means of tracking whether or not you open e-mails from us. This information is used to assess whether the message has been effective, both for you and us or our partners. The information is retained by us and used in deciding the most appropriate offers to be made to you in the future.
In some cases, we also track the pages visited when you click through from one of our advertisements to one of our partner sites. Note that this information is
- Anonymous – no personal information is released or can be derived from it
- Restricted only to our sites and the sites of our partners. We do not track pages you visit on the general internet.
Most industry-standard web browsers have an option that allows you to turn off all cookies or have your computer inform you each time that a request to place a cookie is being made. If you turn cookies off (or refuse to accept a request to place a cookie) you may not have access to some features on our websites and our partners’ websites and you may lose the functionality of locating some of our services.
