Personal Data That We Collect and How We Use It

OMD collects personal data about you when you visit the Site.  “Personal Data” is information that may be used to directly or indirectly identify you, including your name, e-mail address, phone number or other information about you.  The majority of such Personal Data is collected when you sign up for our newsletter, participate in our blog or otherwise provide us with your contact information.

In general, the type of Personal Data we collect includes, but is not limited to:

  • Personal Data to contact you to promote our Services or alert you to special offers, features or matters of interest;
  • Un-identifiable and aggregated Personal Data pertaining to your Site visits that help us maintain the appropriate features, functionality and user experience

We and our e-commerce providers use that data to: (i) provide you with information; (ii) allow you to make blog postings; (iii) guard against potential fraud; (iv) provide answers to your inquiries or questions; and (v) maintain regular communication with you as may be necessary to inform you of offers, updates and other information regarding OMD and its Services.

Social Networks

If you choose to connect to our Sites through a third-party social network such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest and other networks (each, a “Social Network”), we may collect Personal Data from your profile on such Social Network, such as your name, user name, and e-mail address. In addition, our Sites offer features that will allow you to share information from our Sites to a Social Network or share information from our Social Network sites. If you decide to use such features, they may allow the sharing and collection of information both to and from such Social Network so you should check the privacy policy of each Social Network before using such features.

Non-Identifiable Data and Aggregated Personal Data

Regardless of whether you submit information to us, OMD and third parties performing e-commerce services for us may send one or more “cookies” to your computer.  Cookies are small text files placed on your web browser when you visit our Site that store information on your computer, such as your Site preferences.  We use cookies when you sign in to keep track of your personal session.  We also use cookies to track your activity on the Site as a unique person.  For security purposes, all of this information is stored in encrypted form.  This data may be used to display information about our Services and Products on websites operated by third parties.

You can set your web browser to inform you when cookies are set, or to prevent cookies from being set altogether.  Please note, however, that if you decline to use cookies, you may experience reduced functionality and slower site response times.

OMD or our service providers, including Google Analytics, may also collect web surfing data related to your use of the Site.  Such information may include: your Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, and internet service provider (ISP); your operating system; which of our web pages you access and how frequently you access them; referral or exit pages; click stream data; and the dates and times that you visit the Site.  This data may be collected using cookies, web beacons, page tags or similar tools.  As with cookies, the web surfing information is anonymous, “click stream” transactional data that is not associated with any users as individuals.

Web surfing data and similar information may be aggregated for administrative purposes.  OMD may, for example, use this aggregated information in the administration of the Site to improve its usability and to evaluate the success of particular marketing and advertising campaigns, search engine optimization strategies, and other marketing activities.  We also use it to help optimize the Site based on the needs of our users.

How and When Your Information Is Shared With Other Parties

OMD does not sell, trade or license Personal Data about its users for marketing purposes. We do, however, work with a number of trusted partners who perform vital functions as part of our operations. We do not share your Personal Data unless it is necessary to fulfill our responsibilities, including providing information or Services to you.

Additional Sharing of Information

We may engage third parties to help us carry out certain other internal functions or other data collection relevant to our business.  Personal Data is shared with these third parties only to the extent necessary for us to process the transactions you initiate or perform other specific services.  Our partners are legally required to keep your Personal Data private and secure.

We may share your Personal Data with law enforcement or other government agencies as required by law or for the purposes of limiting fraud. We reserve the right to disclose your Personal Data when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process. We further reserve the right to disclose any of your Personal Data that we believe, in good faith, appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the Site or our services, or to protect the rights, property or personal safety of OMD, its users, issuers, or others.

We will not share your Personal Data if such sharing is prohibited by applicable privacy and data protection law, including, without limitation, the EEA’s General Data Protection Regulation effective May 25, 2018.

EEA Residents

This section of the Privacy Policy is applicable to residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”).  The EEA consists of the member states of the European Union, i.e., Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, and Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway.  This section also applies to residents of Switzerland and, in the event of its departure from the EU, residents of the United Kingdom.   Residents of the EEA and Switzerland are referred to here as “EEA Residents.”

From May 25, 2018, all processing of Personal Data of EEA Residents is performed by OMD in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679) of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data (“GDPR”).

Under the GDPR, OMD is both the controller and a co-processor of the Personal Data of EEA Residents.  OMD’s purpose for collecting and processing Personal Data from EEA Residents is to authenticate subscription to our mailing lists and to provide information about our Services. The legal basis for collecting Personal Data for subscribing to our e-mail lists is your consent.  You may withdraw consent for obtaining such communications by following the “Unsubscribe” instructions on any communication or by contacting us at info@omdfortheplanet.com.

EEA Residents may obtain information about the Personal Data that OMD holds about them by contacting OMD at info@omdfortheplanet.com.

International Data Transfers

If you are resident outside the United States, including in the EEA, we transfer Personal Data provided by you for processing in the United States.  Under the GDPR, OMD is considered a “controller” and a “co-processor” of the Personal Data of EEA Residents.  By providing Personal Data to OMD for the purpose of obtaining Services, you consent to the processing of such data in the United States.

Please note that the United States does not have data protection laws equivalent to those in the EEA and other jurisdictions.

Notifications and Communications from Our Site

Communications Regarding Our Services

We will send you email notifications and free newsletters from time to time with offers, suggestions and other information.  Some notifications are communications relating to us and our Services.  You may “opt-out” from receiving such communications by following the “Unsubscribe” instructions provided in the e-mail.

Legal or Security Communications

We also send out notices that are required for legal or security purposes.  For example, certain notifications are sent for your own protection.  In other cases, these notifications involve changes to various legal agreements, such as the Privacy Policy or Terms of Service.  Generally, you may not opt out of such emails.

If you purchase Products, we may send you communications regarding such purchases.  We may also send communications providing customer support or responses to questions regarding the operation of the Services.  Generally, you may not opt out of such emails.

Deleting Your Information

Links to Other Sites

If you follow any links that direct you away from the Site, including links to social media sites or to other websites, among others, this Privacy Policy will not apply to your activity on the other Sites you visit. We do not control the privacy policies or the privacy practices of any third parties.

Security Policy

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect our customers’ Personal Data against unauthorized disclosure or loss.  However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  Therefore, while we strive to protect user information we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from the Site.  You engage in such transmissions at your risk.

If you believe your Personal Data is being improperly used by us or any third party, please immediately notify us via email at info@omdfortheplanet.com.

Children Under 13

This Site is restricted to the use of adults over the age of majority in their place of residence. No portion of the Site is directed to children under the age of 13. Consequently, we do not knowingly collect personal identifying information from any person we know is a child under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age and you believe your child has provided us with Personal Information, please contact us at info@omdfortheplanet.com.

Do Not Track

Although some browsers currently offer a “do not track (‘DNT’) option,” no common industry standard for DNT exists. We therefore do not currently commit to responding to browsers’ DNT signals.

Your California Privacy Rights

Under certain circumstances, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 states that, upon receipt of a request by a California customer, a business may be required to provide information regarding how that business has shared personal information of customers with third parties for direct marketing purposes. However, the foregoing does not apply to businesses like ours that do not disclose personal information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.

Your Rights and Obligations

We ask that you keep the Personal Data that you provide to us current and that you correct any information you have provided us by contacting us at info@omdfortheplanet.comYou represent and warrant that all Personal Data you provide us is true and correct and relates to you and not to any other person.

If you are a resident of the EEA and wish to access or correct the Personal Data that OMD has about you or have any questions relating to the processing of your Personal Data, please contact us at info@omdfortheplanet.com with the subject line “GDPR Data.”

If you use the Site, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account and for restricting access to your computer or device, and you agree to accept responsibility for all activities that occur under your account.
