This Privacy Policy may be updated periodically to reflect changes in OPEX’s information practices. The latest update will be indicated at the top of this Privacy Policy.  

COLLECTING INFORMATION 

We collect information that you provide us, from third parties, and automatically through use of the Website.

This information may include your personal data including, by way of example, your name, postal address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, subscriber/screen name, and password used to access our services. 

Where the collection and processing of personal data are required by law or to perform a contract, we will request it from you. Failure to provide such data may result in our inability to perform services you request or a contract to which you are a party.

Data Collected from Third Parties: We may obtain data from third parties and, where permitted by law, append this data to other data that we already maintain about you.

Automatically Collected Data:  We and our third-party service providers collect data about you automatically when you visit the Website, namely through cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies. When you access the Website, communications data (e.g., home service domain name and Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g., information on the beginning, end, and extent of each access, as well as information on the services that you accessed) may be generated. As permitted by applicable law, we and our third-party service providers may combine this information with the personal data that we collect about you. 

USING YOUR INFORMATION

We (or a third party operating on our behalf) may use your information, including your personal data, for the following purposes, as permitted by law:

COOKIES AND OTHER TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES

Cookies: When you view the Website, OPEX and its service providers may store some data on your device in the form of a ‘cookie’ or the other tracking technologies described below (collectively, “cookies”) to automatically recognize your device when you visit the Website. Cookies can help us in many ways. For example, cookies can allow us to tailor your Website visit to better match your interests, as indicated by your activities when browsing the Website or other sites.  Furthermore, cookies, for example, can be used to store your password, thereby saving you from having to re-enter the password each time that you visit the Website.

Disabling Cookies: Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can edit your browser options to block them in the future. The ‘Help’ portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your device from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Visitors to the Website who disable cookies may still be able to browse certain areas of the Website, but some features may not function.

Clear GIFs, Pixel Tags, and Other Tracking Technologies: Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your device’s hard drive, clear GIFs are embedded invisibly on web pages. We may use clear GIFs (which may also be known as ‘web beacons,’ ‘web bugs,’ or ‘pixel tags’) in connection with the Website to, among other things, track the activities of Website visitors, help us manage content, and compile statistics about Website usage. We and our third-party service providers may also use clear GIFs in HTML e-mails to our customers in order to help us track e-mail response rates, identify when our e-mails are viewed, and track whether our e-mails are forwarded.

Google Analytics: The Website uses Google Analytics, which is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) to assist us in our online advertising. If your Google Account settings permit Google to use your information to personalize advertisements, Google Analytics will use this information to identify other devices you use for advertising purposes. Please see the “Cross-Device Use” section below. Special Note to Non-US Users:  If you are based outside of the United States of America, please note that the information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. On behalf of the Website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity for the Website provider, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as discussed in this Privacy Policy. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

Further information concerning the relevant terms and conditions of use and data privacy, please visit found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/

Google Analytics Help pages: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage   

Hotjar:  The Website uses Hotjar, which is described at www.hotjar.com.  Hotjar helps OPEX to understand better visitors’ experience of the Website (e.g., how much time a visitor spends on a page, which links the visitor chooses to click, what the visitor does and does not like, etc.), and this, in turn, helps us to build and maintain the Website.  Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on visitors’ behavior and their devices, in particular, the IP address of the device (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and preferred language used to display the Website.  Hotjar stores this information in a pseudonymized user profile.  Neither Hotjar nor OPEX will use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.  For further details, please see Hotjar's Privacy Policy at https://www.hotjar.com/legal/policies/privacy    You can opt-out of the creation of a user profile, Hotjar’s storing of data about your usage of our site, and Hotjar’s use of tracking cookies on other websites at https://www.hotjar.com/legal/compliance/opt-out

Cross-Device Use:  We and our third-party service providers may use the information that we collect about you (whether directly from you from our Website, through your device(s), or from a third party) to help us and our third-party service providers identify other devices that you use (e.g., a mobile phone, tablet, other computer, etc.). We and our third-party service providers also may use the cross-device tracking and other information we learn about you to serve targeted advertising on your devices and to send you emails. To opt-out of cross-device advertising, you may follow the instructions set forth in the “Third-Party Targeted Advertising Cookies and Other Third-Party Tracking Technologies” section below. Please note:  if you opt-out of these targeted advertising cookies or other tracking technologies, your opt-out will be specific to the web browser or mobile device from which you accessed the opt-out. If you use multiple devices or browsers, you will need to opt-out each browser or device that you use.

Do Not Track:  Our systems do not currently recognize browser ‘do-not-track’ requests. You may, however, disable certain tracking as discussed in this section (e.g., by disabling cookies).  You also may opt-out of targeted advertising by following the instructions in the "Third-Party Targeted Advertising Cookies and Other Third-Party Tracking Technologies" section below.

Third-Party Targeted Advertising Cookies and Other Third-Party Tracking Technologies: We may also use Google AdWords Remarketing and other third parties, including Eloqua, Facebook Pixels, and LinkedIn, to allow us to continue to show you OPEX advertisements when you visit other portions of the Internet. Google AdWords Remarketing, Eloqua, Facebook Pixels, and LinkedIn use cookies or other tracking technologies that are stored on your device to serve such ads based on your prior visits to the Website. You may opt out Google AdWords Remarketing by visiting http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/. You may opt out of Eloqua targeted advertising by visiting https://www.oracle.com/marketingcloud/opt-status.html.  You may opt out of Facebook Pixels by visiting https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen.  You may opt out of LinkedIn targeted advertising and analytics by visiting https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62931?lang=en

Opting out of Google AdWords Remarketing, Eloqua, Facebook Pixels, or LinkedIn will opt you out of those companies' delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads) or from other advertising networks. Also, if you later erase your cookies or other tracking technologies, use a different device or change Web browsers, your preference may no longer be active.
