OCN PRIVACY POLICY

OurCommunityNow (“OCN”) has created this Privacy Policy in furtherance of its commitment to the transparent processing of personal information and other data in its possession. This Privacy Policy explains what OCN collects, how OCN collects it, and how OCN may use or share what it collects.

This Privacy Policy may be subject to changes or updates at any time at OCN’s discretion without advance notice.

Information Collection

Information You Provide to OCN

You may provide information to OCN in a variety of situations which include, but are not limited to, when you use this site, if you request information from OCN, apply for a content creation job, or when you chose to follow or connect with one of OCN’s social media assets. Information collected may include your name, contact information, or biographical information if you submit a resume as part of an application.

Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Other Technologies

Cookies: OCN may collect information about you by using a cookie. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a website server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses. Any cookie on your hard disk is uniquely assigned to your hard disk and cannot be read by any web server other than a web server in a domain that issued a cookie, meaning companies other than OCN cannot access the cookie for the purpose of obtaining information from it. Cookies allow OCN to collect information about your web browsing activity, such as what websites you visited before or after you visited the website that placed the cookie on your hard disk. Cookies also help OCN to see what content you click or other actions you take while visiting a website. Cookies do not access Personal Information (information that can be used to identify you) or confidential information stored on your device. Cookies may be placed on your hard disk when you visit websites other than OCN’s website that utilize OCN’s technologies.

Pixel Tags & Web Beacons: OCN may collect information using pixel tags or web beacons to collect information. Pixel tags and web beacons are small graphic images or scripts placed on websites, images, advertisements, or emails that allow OCN to determine whether a specific action was performed, such as when an email was opened.

Other Technologies: Other technologies, including server logs, may also collect information.

Information from Third Parties

OCN may receive Personal Information about you from non-client third parties that is publicly available, lawfully shared, or is shared with OCN because you provided your consent to that third party. For example, if OCN has your name and your mailing address is publicly available, a third party may provide your mailing address to OCN.

Information Use and Sharing

Personal Information

With your consent or as provided by law, OCN may use your Personal Information to enhance your experience of OCN, OCN products, affiliate websites, and the assets, products, or services of OCN marketing partners. OCN may use your Personal Information to provide effective services to its marketing partners. OCN may also use your Personal Information to contact you about news, events, or opportunities that OCN believes are relevant to you, or to perform any services you may have requested. If you receive any email communications from OCN, you will be given the opportunity to opt out of receiving additional emails by following the instructions provided in the email.

Biographical information submitted as part of an application is used only for the purpose of considering your application, and may become part of your file if you are offered an position with OCN.

Your Personal Information is shared with unaffiliated third-parties who perform services for OCN or for OCN’s marketing partners. For example, OCN may share your name and email address with a third party that sends emails on OCN’s behalf or on behalf of OCN’s clients, or with a third party that appends publicly available information to the Personal Information that OCN already has. Other third parties, such as Google Analytics, help OCN to collect and analyze data and may retain or use that data according to their own privacy policies and practices. OCN will not share, send, sell, or lease your Personal Information to an unaffiliated third party solely for their own marketing use.

Except as described above, OCN will not share, send, sell, or lease your Personal Information to any non-client third party unless required to do so by law or legal process, when doing so is necessary to protect and defend property rights of OCN, or under exigent legal circumstances to protect the personal safety of OCN users or the public.

If you interact with OCN content in social media, comment on an article, or engage in a similar activity, you are giving OCN permission to share information about that activity, including your name, publicly.

Other Information

OCN uses information that is not personal information for many different purposes, which includes, but is not limited to, delivering relevant ads and content based on your web-browsing patterns, impersonal demographic information, geographic information, IP address, or what kind of device you use to access the website that delivered a cookie to your hard disk.  OCN may share collected information with OCN marketing partners and use collected information to help OCN marketing partners make informed decisions about providing relevant ads across the internet, and to measure the efficacy of those ads. OCN may also use collected information to streamline processes, improve communications, and allow for easier use of services which such services may include collecting information such as name and address by allowing auto-fill of such information. OCN may use collected information to uniquely identify and correlate your browsing devices.

Internet-Based Advertising

OCN has relationships with some third parties to place advertisements on OCN’s websites and on other websites. These third parties may also perform tracking and reporting functions for OCN and OCN’s clients. In performance of their services, these third parties may place cookies on your computer when you visit OCN’s website or other websites so they can display targeted advertisements to you. These third parties do not collect Personal Information in this process, and OCN does not provide any Personal Information to them. This Privacy Policy does not cover collection methods of those third parties, or their use of the collected information.

OCN secures your data and Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure using industry-standard safeguards and practices.
