1. ANTI-SPAM POLICY
OU is committed to helping fight unwanted email (“spam”). OU will not send spam email, and OU will not sell or, subject to Section 4 below, disclose your (“Your”) email address to any third party. If You have received spam from a made-up (i.e., “spoofed”) Options United email address, it did not originate from OU, nor would OU have anything to do with any such e-mail . If You think You received spam originating from OU, please contact OU by sending an email to email@example.com and OU will research to see if it is from a legitimate email user, and take appropriate action if necessary.
3. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
There are three different ways in which OU collects information from visitors on the Site & App:
(a) From online & app requests for information (i.e. e-mail newsletters, contact forms, etc.);
(b) From online & app requests for materials or orders from OU; and
(c) From user-submitted information for possible inclusion on the Site & App (i.e. testimonies).
4. HOW THE INFORMATION IS USED

OU will not disclose a visitor’s personally identifiable information to any non-affiliated company, individual, organization, or entity, except in any of the following circumstances:
(a) The visitor has provided his/her consent to such disclosure;
(b) To provide necessary information to third parties who perform services or functions for or on behalf of OU in connection with the management, operation, and maintenance of the Site & App; provided, however, that any such third parties are either subject to contractual confidentiality obligations or maintain their own privacy policies;

(d) In furtherance of the pursuit or defense of an actual or threatened legal proceeding and the claims and assertions made therein, whether asserted by or against OU, provided such disclosure is limited to only that which is reasonably necessary to further OU’s pursuit or defense of such claims and proceedings, as the case may be, and provided further that OU takes reasonable precautions to attempt to ensure the information disclosed does not become a matter of public record (though OU shall not be liable or responsible if, having taken such reasonable precautions, such information does become a matter of public record).

10. CHILDREN’S ONLINE PRIVACY
We are concerned about the privacy of young children and do not knowingly collect, store, use, or disclose any personal information from a child under 13. In the event OU discovers that it has collected personal information of a child under the age of 13, including without limitation the full name, home address, e-mail address, telephone number, or any other information that would allow someone to identify or contact the child, OU will either (a) block such child from providing personal information and delete the personal information obtained from such child, or (b) seek to obtain consent from the parents of such child for the collection, storage, use, and disclosure of such child’s personal information.
