What Information We Collect and How We Use That Information
Our registration forms require users to give us contact information that may include name, e-mail address, format preference (HTML vs. Text), address, interests, and similar information. We do not request or store sensitive information from our visitors, such as credit card or social security numbers.
Internet Protocol Address
We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Site. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server; administer our Site; analyze trends; track users' movement; gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site; and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Privacy Protection Procedures
Protecting your information is important to us. We have implemented appropriate physical, technical and organizational measures, such as using industry-accepted encryption for transmission of credit card information, to help keep your information secure, accurate, current, and complete. In addition, all OAR employees with access to personal information obtained on the OAR web site are bound to adhere to this policy as part of their contract with OAR. OAR protects your personal information in a variety of ways. For certain services, such as our e-newsletter and online forums, only minimal personal information is required, such as email addresses. In addition, personal information provided to our run and donations sites is encrypted. We also protect that account information by placing it on a secure portion of our site that is only accessible by authorized personnel. In addition, IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information. All information provided to OAR is transmitted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect account information by placing it on a secure portion of our Site that is only accessible by certain qualified OAR employees. Unfortunately however, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. While we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of such information. Any such transmission is done at your own risk.

Our Site contains links to other Web sites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another Web site for which OAR has no responsibility. We encourage you to read the privacy statements on all such sites as their policies may be different than ours.
OAR does not share, exchange, or sell visitor information (e.g., name, address, e-mail address), mailing lists, or personal information of any kind with other organizations.
