The OSAA recognizes that the growth of on-line services, including Internet services, has created additional privacy concerns, particularly for our constituents. On-line privacy concerns focus on the protection of personally identifiable information, which an individual reasonably expects to be kept private. As the term suggests, personally identifiable information is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, including, for example, a person's name, address or telephone number, e-mail address, and information about on-line activities that are directly linked to them.
If you browse the OSAA website, you do so anonymously. We do not collect personal information. We may log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our website you visit, but we do not link your IP address to anything personally identifiable. This site's activity data is used only for standard reporting purposes to evaluate site content and performance.
Some of the services on our website require user authentication and authorization. Personal information provided for OSAA website user accounts, including personally identifiable information, may be collected. This information is used to track user accounts and preferences as well as adding another layer of security. This information may include your name, e-mail address, phone number, job title, and/or mailing address.
Like many other websites, we use a standard technology called a cookie. On confidential information pages, you may accept cookies but they are not essential for site security. These cookies are used to remember your website browsing preferences, like which specific classification was last viewed or what school year you are viewing, as well as, your user account information and login session. These cookies reside on your computer with data in an encrypted format. These cookies persist throughout your browsing experience and across browsing sessions and may continue to exist on your computer after closing your browser. Some cookies may be discarded as soon as you log off through the website or after a set duration of time, also known as cookie expiration.
The OSAA is fully committed to data security. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of information, we have put in place physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure your information. The security of your information is protected during website interaction and transmission of data by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts transmitted information. In addition to built in SSL security protocols, more sensitive information, like user passwords, are encrypted with a custom written algorithm that cannot be decrypted. We will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available.
We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data. It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your access codes and to your computer. Do not share your access codes with others. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
