Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. We collect Traffic Data through the use of “Cookie” technology. “Cookies” are data files sent to and stored on the computer you use to view a web site. “Cookies” can be used to monitor use of our site, to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly and to store your user name and password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the site.

We will only collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide. Your Personal Information will not be disclosed to any unaffiliated third party without your permission.

CONFIDENTIALITY

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order; (b) protect a physical or property threat to you, to others or to the site; (c) respond to a breach or attempted breach of the security of our site; (d) defend or assert our legal rights; or (e) enforce our Terms of Service. We may also transfer Personal Information in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, affiliation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundamental corporate change.

We provide you with the capability to transmit your Personal Information via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly equipped web browser.

 

We will take reasonable steps to protect the security and integrity of all Personal Information provided to this website, including making your Personal Information available to our team, partners and agents if any on a need-to-know basis. However, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

 

STOLEN OR LOST INFORMATION

You may be able to create an account on our website with a username and password. Passwords are encrypted and OFAF’S policies do not permit any employee or service provider access to your password. If you do create a username and password, you are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your personal information including, but not limited to, details about your credit card(s), user name and password. You shall also be responsible for any access to or use of the website by you or any person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you, and whether or not such person or entity is your employee or agent. You must immediately notify us if your credit card, user name or password is lost, stolen or used without your permission.

 

PHISHING


With identity theft a continuing problem, it has become increasingly common for unauthorized individuals to send e-mail messages to consumers, purporting to represent a legitimate company such as a bank or online merchant, requesting that the consumer provide personal, often sensitive information. Sometimes, the domain name of the e-mail address from which the e-mail appears to have been sent and the domain name of the website requesting such information appear to be the domain name of a legitimate, trusted company. In reality, such sensitive information is received by an unauthorized individual to be used for purposes of identity theft. This illegal activity has come to be known as "phishing."

 

OFAF will never request your password or social security number via e-mail. If you receive an e-mail or other correspondence requesting that you provide any sensitive information (including your website password or credit card information) via e-mail or to a website that does not seem to be affiliated with our website, or that otherwise seems suspicious to you, please do not provide such information, and inform us immediately.

 

OTHER LIMITS

The site contains links to other websites. Note, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites. Once you link to another website from our site, you are subject to the terms and conditions of that site, including but not limited to that site’s privacy policy and terms of use. We may also make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups available to you. Although we strive to protect our users’ privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of the information you post. The information you disclose in these areas becomes public information. We have no control over its use and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information. You disclose this information at your own risk.
