Optimized Process Designs, LLC
(referred to herein as "OPD") has adopted this privacy
guideline for all OPD web sites. This guideline has been developed with the
recognition that Internet technologies are rapidly evolving, and that
underlying business models are still not established. Accordingly, this
guideline is subject to change without notice.
Although OPD tries to link only to web sites that share its respect for
customer and visitor information privacy, OPD is not responsible for the
content or the privacy policies of web sites to which it may provide links.
OPD encourages the use of the Internet and the OPD web sites. The following
describes what information may be gathered.
Anonymous Information: OPD may gather anonymous information which does not
personally identify you, but which may be helpful for improving the services
we offer. Generally this information is collected through "traffic data" and
may entail the use of "cookies," "IP addresses," or other numeric codes used
to identify a computer.
Cookies: Like many other web sites, OPD may employ cookies to recognize you
and your access privileges on certain sites as well as to track site usage.
Cookies allow the OPD server to recognize you when you visit our web site in
the future. You may be able to configure your web browser to notify you when
a web site is attempting to send you a cookie or configure your web browser
not to accept cookies.
IP Addresses: Your IP address is the unique identifier of your computer on
the Internet. OPD logs IP addresses primarily for systems administration and
troubleshooting purposes. OPD may also use IP addresses to understand
better how visitors travel to, through, and from OPD sites to help improve web site
structure, flow, and content, among other purposes.
Registration: Some OPD web sites may allow registration. When you fill out a
form to interact with OPD, OPD may require that you supply personal
information such as your full name, street address, e-mail address, unique
subscriber ID, telephone number and other relevant contact information. When
you visit a registered OPD web site, we will track your site usage,
including the pages you visit and other information that may help OPD
improve service to you. The method OPD uses of tracking the pages you visit is
either your subscriber ID and associated information, your IP address, or
similar or related technologies. Some OPD web sites allow for the on-line
submission of resumes. Personal information collected from resumes will be
used solely for the purpose of accepting and evaluating candidate
submissions for job postings. This information may be shared within OPD. OPD
reserves the right to grant or deny access to its web sites as OPD deems
Using the e-mail addresses provided at registration, OPD may choose to
periodically send e-mails to its subscribers. OPD may contact you regarding
account status, changes to the General Conditions and Legal Notices, for
business purposes, and to confirm registration.
Upon request, OPD will (a) remove you and your personal information from its
database, thereby canceling your registration; and/or (b) correct personal
information that you state is erroneous. Please be sure to include in your
request the name of the site at which you registered and the e-mail address
you used to register so that we can verify your request.
Data Security: To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and
ensure the appropriate use of information, OPD has put in place physical,
electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the information collected
online. Keep in mind that no security system is foolproof; therefore, you
should exercise care and good judgment when transmitting data over the
Internet or filling out forms for any web site.
OPD does not release personal information about you as an individual to third
parties, except with your permission or under special circumstances,
as described in General Conditions and Legal Notices. OPD will provide you
all of your personal information provided at registration upon request. This
information will only be sent to the e-mail address on file for the
subscriber ID associated with it.
A Special Note About Children
OPD encourage everyone to visit our sites and learn about OPD. However,
children are not eligible to register to use OPD's services, and OPD asks that
minors not submit any personal information. If you are a minor, you
may use this service only in conjunction with a parent or guardian. Parents
or caregivers should become knowledgeable about software and other tools so
they can assure that children's use of the Internet reflects parental
preferences and requirements.
