Privacy

It is the County Officers & Deputies Association of Oklahoma (CODA)’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, CODA collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. CODA’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how CODA’s visitors use its website. From time to time, CODA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

CODA also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. CODA only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to CODA’s website choose to interact with CODA in ways that require CODA to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that CODA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with CODA are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, CODA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with CODA. CODA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

CODA may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, CODA may monitor the most popular posts on @WebConfigurationManager.AppSettings["baseURL"] and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, CODA does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

CODA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on CODA’s behalf or to provide services available at CODA’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. CODA’s will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, CODA discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when CODA believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of CODA, third parties or the public at large. CODA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. CODA uses cookies to help CODA identify and track visitors, their usage of the CODA website, and their website access preferences. CODA visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using CODA’s website, with the drawback that certain features of CODA’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If CODA, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that CODA goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of CODA may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Ads

Ads appearing on any of our website may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by CODA and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, CODA may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in CODA’s sole discretion. CODA encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
