www.oshkoshindependent.com Privacy Statement
We collect aggregate information site-wide, including anonymous site statistics. We also log domain names and/or IP addresses. We use this information primarily to find out where users hit the site the hardest, what features they like the best, and what we can do to make things better.
On certain pages and forms we may ask users to provide us with names, addresses, phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, demographic, preference and other personal and demographic information. This more personal information is gathered only with the users’ knowledge and active permission and participation.
We will not share any user’s personal information to any other organizations without the user’s consent, nor will we publish such information. Contest entry information may be shared with the contest sponsor, but not with any additional parties.
Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else. We won’t knowingly allow anyone under 14 to register with any of our sites or to access those features that require registration.
We do not utilize third party advertising services. Your usage data is not tracked by third party advertisers.
When we present information to our advertisers — to help them understand our audience and confirm the value of advertising on our Web site — it is usually in the form of aggregated statistics on traffic to various pages within our sites. All information gathered is stored through an online analytics database accessible only to www.oshkoshindependent.com. However, as effective as any security measure implemented may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply won’t be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. And, of course, any information you include in a message you post to any chat room, forum or other public posting area is available to anyone with Internet access. If you don’t want people to know your email address, for example, don’t include it in any message you post publicly.
The Web is an evolving medium. Changes may occur such as software updates, that may change the way data is utilized. We will work to continually update this page with any changes as they occur.
