HOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IS COLLECTED & USED
OPC Direct only collects personal information that you voluntarily submit through our Web sites. This may include data such as your name, address, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers. We do not automatically collect personal information without your knowledge. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
USES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you submit personal information to OPC Direct, you will be asked to decide how we may use your information. Unless we specifically tell you otherwise before you submit personal information, we will only use it for the following:
- To inform you about special promotions
- Responding to your questions or comments
- To better understand your purchasing habits and needs
- Assistance us to understand how we can improve our products, services, & Website
- Contact you to ask for your opinion or willingness to participate in events
LIMITING THE USE OF YOUR INFORMATION
If you submit personal information to OPC Direct, you have two options:
You may choose to restrict our use of your information to a specific application, such as answering your question about a product. This is called the “Opt-Out” choice.
These options give you the opportunity to control the usage of your personal information by “opting out” of our systems.
To improve your visit to our sites, we may use “cookies” to obtain non-personal information (cookies are text information files that your browser places on your computer when you visit a Web site). We may aggregate this data to analyze the viewing habits of our site visitors, but it will not be associated with any personally identifiable data. Wherever we do collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
SHARING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH OTHERS
OPC Direct will not use or share your personal information in ways unrelated to the uses described above unless we provide you with prior notice and give you an opportunity to change your usage preferences. We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Unless you give us prior consent, OPC Direct will not trade, sell, or share your personal information with any person or entity other than OPC Direct Corporation and its subsidiaries, affiliates and representatives, unless required by law or as disclosed to you before the information is collected.
For certain promotions or product requests, we may share your information with an outside company for the sole purpose of fulfilling your order. These companies are carefully selected by OPC Direct and also take the protection of your personal information seriously.
ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION
To modify your personal information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every effort to respond to your requests in a timely manner.
If you have already submitted personal information to OPC Direct, you may opt-out of the company’s future use of that information by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Upon receiving your request, we will delete your personal information from our records.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
The security of your personal information is very important to us. We use appropriate technical and managerial procedures to protect your personal information and prevent its disclosure outside OPC Direct. Only those authorized by OPC Direct will be granted access to your personal information.
In addition to careful consideration about what information you share and who you share it with, we recommend that everyone develop good security habits. These include protecting and regularly changing your password, using computer virus protection, logging off when you finish using your computer, and considering the use of file or email encryption programs.
ENFORCEMENT OF POLICIES OR CONSUMER CONCERNS
If you believe OPC Direct has not adhered to these practices or have any concerns related to the privacy of your personal information, please notify us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make every effort to investigate and correct the problem promptly.
