This policy will be effective starting April 19, 2019
Welcome to OkPOLST.org (the "Website"), the website for Oklahoma POLST, a nonprofit organization. This Privacy Notice describes the types of personal information we collect about visitors to our Website. The Privacy Notice also describes how we may use that information, how we protect that information, how we share that information, your choices and options regarding the information, and how you can contact us regarding our privacy practices.
Information We Collect
We may collect certain personal information from you in connection with your activities at OkPOLST.com. This information may include:
Additionally, we or companies acting on our behalf may collect certain computer and browser information through automated technologies such as cookies and web beacons when you visit our Website. A "cookie" is a file that a website sends to a visitor's computer or other Internet-connected device to identify the browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A "web beacon," also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server.
The information collected using these tools may include your IP address, browser characteristics, operating system, the address of the web page that referred you to our Website, dates and times of Website visits, the language your system uses, and the country and time zone in which your device is located. These automated technologies also permit the collection of "clickstream data," which may include a log of content you access while browsing a website.
Companies acting on our behalf may combine the information collected from your visit to our Website with other information they have collected previously. Your web browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies and how to restrict, reject or disable certain cookies.
Interest-Based Online Advertising and Google Analytics
This section of our Privacy Notice provides details about interest-based online advertising (also called "targeted advertising", “remarketing”, or "behavioral advertising"), Google Analytics, and your choices with respect to this type of advertising.
We use Google Analytics’ 3rd-party audience data such as age, gender and interests to better understanding the behavior of our customers and we may work with companies that collect information about your online activities to provide advertising targeted to suit your interests and preferences. For example, you may see certain ads on this website or other websites because we contract with Google and other similar companies to target our ads based on information we or they have collected, including information that was collected through automated means (such as cookies and web beacons). These companies also use automated technologies to collect information when you click on our ads, which helps track and manage the effectiveness of our marketing efforts.
You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests, by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and edit or opt-out your Google Display Network ads’ preferences at http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. The data that Google collects may be accessed and/or deleted by end users via My Activity. Because those opt-out and preference control pages are specific to the individual browser used to visit it, and because that page is not operated by OkPOLST, we are unable to perform the opt-outs on your behalf.
How We Use the Information We Collect
When we collect information from you, we may use it for a number of purposes, including
In addition, we use information collected online through automated means for purposes such as (i) customizing our users' visits to our Website; (ii) delivering content (including advertising) tailored to our users' interests and the manner in which our users browse our Website; (iii) measuring and managing the advertising effectiveness of our online and offline advertisements and events; and (iv) managing our business. We also use this information to help diagnose technical and service problems, administer our Website, identify users of our Website, and gather demographic information about our users. We use clickstream data to determine how much time users spend on web pages of our websites, how users navigate through our websites, and how we may tailor our websites to better meet the needs of our users. In order for us to maintain the accuracy of your personal information and improve our communication with you, we may also supplement the information we collect with other public demographic information.
We do not send unsolicited email or postal mail. If you provide an email address to us as part of an inquiry, you will not be placed on a mailing list without your consent.
Information We Share
We do not share your personal information with any third parties; however, we may share the information you provide (i) if we are required to do so by law or legal process, (ii) with law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent harm or loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.
We do not seek nor will we knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 13.
Our website may provide links to other websites for your convenience and information. These linked websites operate independently from OkPOLST and may have their own privacy notices or policies. To the extent any linked websites you visit are not owned or controlled by OkPOLST, we are not responsible for the websites' content, any use of the websites, or the privacy practices of the websites. We suggest you review the privacy policies of any linked websites you visit.
How We Protect Your Information
