WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit the Site, without logging in, you remain anonymous. To the extent you use contact forms or e-mail links via the Site to communicate with us and provide us with personally identifiable information, however, you will not remain anonymous. Because it is not possible to anticipate every conceivable context in which such information might be provided to us via e-mail, we can provide you no assurance that personally identifiable information you choose to provide to us via e-mail will be maintained as private.
We collect personally identifiable information from users who fill out forms on this site. We only collect information we need. All the information we collect is necessary for us to improve the delivery of information on this Site.
Open Access requires customers to provide personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use Open Access publications and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured only when a visitor accesses Online Services and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with an Online Service, engages in transactions, or contacts customer service.
Personally Identifiable Information includes, but may not be limited to: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and sex); and (iv) other “Legal Data” (such as your social security number, mortgage information, automobile information, marital information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).
We urge everybody under the legal age of adult to avoid disclosing any information over the Internet that would allow someone to identify them personally, including without limitation, their name, phone number, address, or social security number.

Open Access personnel use the data to prepare reports regarding Site activity as part of the process of maintaining and improving the site.
No Personally Identifiable Information is revealed in this process. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use the Site at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).

Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.

You can confirm who is listed as a contact for your account, add new contacts, or remove contacts by clicking on “My Account.” We also may provide information to a third party in response to a subpoena or to otherwise comply with the law.
WHAT STEPS DO WE TAKE TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY?
We do not presently provide any personal information collected via its non-public extranet area to other companies, firms or individuals without the permission of those who provided the information. We do not presently collect personally identifiable information via the public area of the Site except to the extent that such information is provided in unsolicited e-mails.

For all practical purpose, only attorneys or staff working for Open Access will have access to the information you submit through web forms or email. However, it is also possible that our Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as your own ISP may access the information you submit over the Internet to us, although it is generally not the practice of ISPs to do so. Finally, although highly unlikely, computer hackers may be able to gain access to information you submit when it is transmitted through the Internet or stored on your server or our server.
