Oregon Child Abuse Solutions (“OCAS,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it through compliance with this Privacy Notice (“Privacy Notice”).  This Privacy Notice describes the types of Information we may collect from you when you visit the website at (the “Site”), and that you may provide in electronic messages between you, the Site and OCAS.  It also describes our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that Information.

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your Information and how we will handle it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, do not use the Site.  By accessing or using the Site, you agree to this Privacy Notice.

OCAS may change this Privacy Notice at any time, at its discretion.  Your continued use of the Site after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the Privacy Notice periodically for updates.

This Privacy Notice is subject to and governed by the OCAS Website Terms of Use (“Terms of Use”) available at the Site here.

  • The Types Of Information That OCAS Collects About You and How OCAS Collects Information About You

OCAS may collect two types of Information from you when you visit the Site: Personal Information and Non-Personal Information (collectively “Information”).

  • “Personal Information” refers to data by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, and telephone number.
  • “Non-Personal Information” means data that is about you, but does not identify you specifically.  If you do nothing during your visit to our Site but browse, read pages, or view content, we will gather and store Information about your visit that does not identify you personally.

We collect Information:

  • Directly from you when you provide it to us.
  • Automatically as you navigate through the Site.
  • Through Google Analytics.
  • From the Stripe Payment Platform.

Information You Provide Directly to OCAS.  The Information that you provide us directly through our Site may include:

  • Information that you provide to OCAS by filling in forms on our Site.  We may also ask you for Information when you report a problem with our Site.  And it may be necessary for you to provide us with Information so we can communicate with you about an inquiry you have.
  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us.
  • Your responses to surveys that we might ask you to complete.

Information Automatically Collected from You.  The Information that OCAS may automatically collect and store about you when you visit the Site may include:

  • The Internet Protocol Address and domain name used.  The Internet Protocol address is a numerical identifier assigned either to your Internet service provider or directly to your computer. We use the Internet Protocol Address to direct Internet traffic to you.
  • The type of browser and operating system you used;
  • The date and time you visited the Site;
  • The time you spend on the Site;
  • The web pages or services you accessed at the Site;
  • The website you visited prior to coming to the Site; and
  • Information related to your engagement with the Site as a registrant, such as trainings you complete or host, your posted comments, your completed quiz results, and your last login date.
  • Cookies, which are small text files that a web server (such as OCAS‘s or its chosen web hosting company server) places on a user’s computer.  When accessing a cookie, OCAS’s server reads a number associated with a browser, but is unable to determine any data about a user.  With that number, our web server can tailor its content to the needs of the specific browser, and we can optimize the Site for your use.

Google Analytics Advertising Features.  We also may have the following Google Analytics Advertising Features Implemented: Demographics and Interest reporting, Remarketing, GDN Impression Reporting and Double Click Campaign Manager.  These features collect data using Google advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers.  OCAS and third-party vendors use these first-party cookies to access the success of online marketing campaigns, inform future campaigns and improve usability on the Site.  To learn how to opt-out of the Google Analytics Advertising Features we use, please see Google Analytics’ currently available opt-outs for the web.

  • For any other purpose with your consent.

Site statistics are compiled into traffic reports, which help OCAS understand, anticipate, and respond to user needs.  If we learn, for example, of heightened interest in certain aspects of OCAS’s projects, we are likely to highlight that information on the Site home page.  This Information helps us create a better overall experience for Site users.

OCAS will retain your Information as long as OCAS believes it is appropriate for the purposes of this Privacy Notice.
