This policy will let you know:
The SOU eClassifieds collects information in several ways from different parts of our web site.
Advertising networks that serve ads onto the SOU eClassifieds may use their own cookies.
The SOU eClassifieds may also collect IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
The primary goal of the SOU eClassifieds in collecting personal information is to provide you, the user, with a customized experience and to assist your navigation throughout the classifieds.
When you are asked for personal information on the SOU eClassifieds, you are sharing that information with the SOU eClassifieds alone, unless it is specifically stated otherwise. However, some activities will, by their very nature, result in your personal information being revealed to other users of the SOU eClassifieds. For example, when you enter personal information on the ad posting form, this information will generally be included in your ad, unless specifically stated otherwise.
As a general rule, Southern Oregon University will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the circumstances described below. Please see the Terms of Service or Use Agreements for each of our products and services for more detailed information about how your personal information may be shared.
Southern Oregon University may disclose account information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating the Terms of Service of the Southern Oregon University or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) the rights or property of the Southern Oregon University, other users of the Southern Oregon University, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. Southern Oregon University may disclose or access account information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it and for administrative and other purposes that we deem necessary to maintain, service, and improve our products and services.
If you choose not to provide personal information, you can still use some areas of the SOU eClassifieds, but you will not be able to access areas or use features that require you to submit personal information, such as posting ads.
You also have choices with respect to cookies. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies you will be unable to use those services of the SOU eClassifieds that require registration in order to participate. You can still use most of the features of the SOU eClassifieds even if you do not accept cookies.
The Southern Oregon University does not sell or rent user information to anyone. We will notify you at the time of data collection or transfer if your data will be shared with a third party and you will always have the option of not permitting the transfer. If you do not wish to allow your data to be shared, you can choose not to use a particular service.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may edit or delete your ads at any time by clicking on the appropriate link or graphic provided by the system.
Other than the administrator of the SOU eClassifieds or other authorized personnel of the Southern Oregon University, you are the only person who has access to your personal information. Your ads are password-protected to prevent unauthorized access.
We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Southern Oregon University will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, Southern Oregon University cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Southern Oregon University is a general audience web site. Children should always ask a parent for permission before sending personal information to anyone online. Southern Oregon University does not share personal information about users under the age of 13 with third parties and we do not sell or rent personal information about any of our users, regardless of age. In addition, Southern Oregon University will not send any direct email offers to users who indicate they are under the age of 13.
Please keep in mind that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online - for example in ads that you post or through email - that information can be collected and used by others. In short, if you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return.
Ultimately, you are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and/or any account information. Please be careful and responsible whenever you're online.
