You can visit OCIF’s web pages without providing any of your personal information. If you choose to provide us with your personal information through any of our web forms, we will collect, use, and disclose that information within OCIF, for the purposes associated with the applicable form. We follow this policy regarding your personal information collected through our website and through email and other electronic messages between you and us. OCIF will not disclose your personal information without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on OCIF’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required. It is against OCIF’s policy to sell personal information collected online without consent.
Cookies are small text files containing a unique identifier that are placed on your device’s hard drive or other storage medium to store information about your web browsing and usage.
Like most websites, OCIF relies on cookies and other commonly used technologies such as pixels to provide website functionality, provide necessary secure areas and the best experience for our users. Cookies and pixels let OCIF know which pages are being visited, by how many people, how long they stay on a page and other statistics that are useful in relation to the use of our site (collectively, Usage Information).
You may choose whether to provide your personal information to OCIF. If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still visit our website, but you will be unable to submit forms or receive our e-marketing material without providing express consent. We will generally obtain your express consent to collect any personal information that we require. Express consent may be given verbally or in writing, including by electronic means.
Depending on the circumstances, your consent may be express or implied. Implied consent can be inferred from the circumstances. For example, if we indicate that we may send certain correspondence to your home address and you provide us with your home address, we would not normally obtain your explicit consent to use your home address to send you that correspondence—your consent would be implied in those circumstances.
Consent may also be withdrawn by contacting us at the address noted below, please note however that withdrawal of consent previously obtained may inhibit OCIF’s ability to provide continued services. If you choose to have a relationship with OCIF, contractual or other, we will continue to contact you in regard to that specific business relationship or transaction.
For clarity, your ability to change or withdraw consent is not absolute. OCIF reserves the right to continue handling your personal information in those circumstances required or permitted by law despite a change or withdrawal of consent.
Wherever your personal information may be held within OCIF or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the personal information that you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.
For legal and business purposes we may retain your personal information for as long as it is reasonably needed. Upon expiry of the appropriate retention period, bearing in mind our reasonable legal and business requirements, your personal information will either be destroyed in a secure manner or made anonymous.
