Personal Information you provide to us. On various pages of the Website, you will have an opportunity to provide information to us about yourself, such as your name, address, phone number, and email address. You may provide this information when you register with the Website or send a message on the Website. In addition, when you register on our Website or send a message on the Website, your personally identifiable information, including your email, will be added to our customer database and distribution list.
Technical Information gathered automatically. When you browse our Website, you do so anonymously. Generic information from server logs is used to track the number of hits to the site and to find out what types of browser software and operating systems visitors use.
Use of Information. Parts of the Website are informational in nature and publicly available to all users. Consequently, until you participate in surveys, chats, programs, or events, register to become a member, register your name for networking with or request information from OWLS, you are able to browse the Website without providing any personally identifiable information, although your browser may tell us what type of computer and operating system you are using as well as other kinds of technical information. Below, OWLS sets forth more detail on how OWLS uses your personally identifiable information.
Demographic Information: OWLS may share demographic data on an aggregated basis, which will not identify any particular user, with OWLS’s members, partners and affiliates and for advertising or other technical or business purposes.
Survey Results: OWLS may share survey results collected through the Website with its business partners, members, and affiliates and/or the general public, the news media, and with the U.S. Government and state governments, not only for business or marketing purposes or as may be required by law, but also to participate in government programs and initiatives.
Technical Information: OWLS will use this information to facilitate educational opportunities, provide content, participation, or otherwise allow access to or use of certain information, tools, or features and for improving the Website’s performance, usability and design. OWLS may also use technical information to help diagnose problems with OWLS’s servers, analyze Website usage trends, track user movements on the Website, and to otherwise manage and monitor the Website.
Legal Action: OWLS may disclose personally identifiable information when legally required to do so in accordance with government requests or regulations or legal proceedings. OWLS may also disclose personally identifiable information to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of the OWLS website or as is otherwise required to limit legal liability, protect or defend OWLS’S rights, property, or interests, or protect the safety, rights, or property of OWLS’S users.
Children’s Privacy. OWLS cares about the safety of children on the Website and encourages parents and guardians to monitor their children’s use of the Internet. Although the Website is suitable for a general audience, this Website is intended for use only by users who are over 13 years of age. Accordingly, OWLS does not knowingly solicit personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13 and reserves the right to limit participation in particular activities on or through Website to individuals above a certain age.
Collection of Information by Third-Party Websites. We sometimes may offer content (e.g., promotions) that is sponsored by or co-branded with an identified third party.

The site will notify you at the time of information collection if a third party will obtain such information.
Your Choices. We may use the personally identifiable information we collect from you to provide you with opportunities to offer you products and services that may be of interest to you. OWLS makes its customer, conference attendee, and some webcast registrant lists available to other reputable organizations whose products or offerings may be of interest to the OWLS community.
