This privacy notice, including the WEBSITE DISCLAIMER, is easily accessible from the www.oppublishing.com homepage.

Accountability

OP Publishing makes all reasonable effort to ensure the intended use of personal information collected by us is specified at or before the time of collection. OP Publishing makes all reasonable effort to ensure external parties providing us with personal information have obtained consumer consent before we receive the information. OP Publishing will not transfer, sell or otherwise distribute your personal information to an outside organization or individual without your consent. OP Publishing is accountable for all personal information in its custody, including any information transferred to a third party for processing.

Information Collection and Use

The following are circumstances in which OP Publishing and/or its website, may collect personal information and general information from you, and how the information is used.

Subscriptions

Personal information collected will be used to fulfill a subscription or to send an invoice, refund, or notice of renewal. When subscribing electronically, by mail or by telephone, we require some or all of the following personal information: name, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, credit card or other payment information. When you order gift subscriptions for others, we require some or all of the following recipient information: name, address and telephone number.

Customer Service

When contacting our customer service department by telephone or by e-mail, you may be asked personal information for the purpose of identifying your subscription details (or details of a gift-subscription recipient) in our database. This information may be retained to better serve you in the future.

Contests, Surveys and Feedback

Collection of personal information for contests, surveys and customer feedback may be used in two ways: to contact you in case of prize distribution, and to compile and analyze consumer data in order to improve the content of our publications and/or their websites. While we may occasionally use the information for marketing opportunities, we will not do so without your consent.

Online Forums

In order to take advantage of the online forums you may be asked to register by name, e-mail address and password. While OP Publishing will keep those details private, any personal information voluntarily supplied by you in our forums does not fall under our corporate privacy policy.

  2. The Internet domain for your Internet service provider, such as “company.com” or “service.ca” and the Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer accessing the website, such as “xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.” Our web server automatically recognizes only the consumer's domain name, but not the consumer’s e-mail address (where possible).

OP Publishing uses the general information for statistical analysis, for tracking overall traffic patterns on the site, to gauge the public interest in OP Publishing and the site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. The information we collect is used for internal review and is then safely discarded.
