Usage and Right to Information
OAO uses the Membership data you voluntarily provide – both online and offline – to keep you informed of information pertinent to your Membership in the Association.
Upon request, OAO will advise you as quickly as possible in writing, whether any of your personal data has been stored by the company and if so, which data. We will correct or delete any information upon written request, but we require acknowledgement in writing that you understand the deletion of your Membership data will impede OAO’s ability to contact you if you wish to remain a participant in the Association.
If at a later date, you no longer wish to participate as an OAO Member, your information will be deleted from the OAO Public Website and OAO Members’ Portal database(s) but will be stored offline in a secure archive should you wish to access it or use it to rejoin as a Member.
OAO will apply technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against either accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or unauthorized access.
