The following discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices for OpenCourt (“OPENCOURT”) and the OpenCourt.us website, including the OpenCourt.us embeddable media player (the “Site”). OPENCOURT reserves the right to modify the information contained herein at anytime without prior notice. If OPENCOURT does make changes to its privacy policies, OPENCOURT will modify this page accordingly. Check this page periodically for amendments. The Site and all information and materials on it are provided to you “AS IS” without warranty of any kind.
YOUR USE OF THE SITE, OR YOUR PROVISION TO OPENCOURT OF ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION CONSTITUTES YOUR AGREEMENT TO THESE TERMS AND ANY SUBSEQUENT CHANGES TO THESE TERMS; DO NOT USE THE SITE OR PROVIDE INFORMATION IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ALL OF THE TERMS.
Information You Provide
OPENCOURT requests personally identifiable information when you register for an account. Information may be used or requested to perform research, improve usability of the Site, administer mailing lists or online communities, or other activities related to OPENCOURT services. This information may include, but is not limited to, personal names, e-mail addresses, location, and occupation.
If You Do Not Wish to Disclose Personal Information
If you do not want to provide OPENCOURT with certain personal information then you may opt out by not registering for any account that requires such information. For example, if you do not want OPENCOURT to retain your name, then you may choose not to become a registered user. You will not be entitled to the benefits of registration, but you are still free to browse the Site and to visit the parts of the site accessible to non-registrants.
Disclosure of Information
Available log records, account information, and all data stored on OPENCOURT’s servers may be accessed by OPENCOURT’s system administrators. OPENCOURT will not disclose this data to any third parties, including third-party marketers, unless required by law. In the event that OPENCOURT is required by law (including a court order) to disclose the information that you submit, OPENCOURT will endeavor to provide you with notice (unless OPENCOURT is prohibited) that a request for your information has been made so that you may object to the disclosure. OPENCOURT will send this notice by email to any address that you have given us. OPENCOURT prefers to independently object to over-broad requests for access to information about users of OPENCOURT’s Site, but OPENCOURT cannot assure you that it will be able to do this in all cases. If you do not challenge the disclosure request yourself, OPENCOURT may be legally required to turn over your information.
The Site’s content is intended for adults and OPENCOURT will not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are a parent or legal guardian of a child under age 13 who you believe has submitted personal information to the Site, please contact OPENCOURT immediately.
Posting or updating content on the Site is a public action, and all content may be publicly visible. Identification of all contributed content may include, but is not limited to, display of your account name. All content may be retained for restorative, archival, or research purposes by OPENCOURT. Editing or deleting content may alter the displayed state of the content, but will not permanently delete the content from the Site.
Because information sent to the Site is not encrypted, you should not send messages containing information that you consider highly sensitive to this website. OPENCOURT uses standard security measures to ensure that information provided by you, including your personally identifiable information, is not lost, misused, altered, or unintentionally destroyed. OPENCOURT also uses software to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage. Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. However, your confidential use of the Site cannot be guaranteed by OPENCOURT. OPENCOURT shall not be responsible for any harm that you or any person may suffer as a result of a breach of confidentiality in respect to your use of this Site or any information you transmitted to the Site.
Removal or Correction of Account Information
You may also “Unsubscribe” from the site by emailing OPENCOURT with the subject “unsubscribe” and your username in the message. OPENCOURT will email you back as soon as your account has been disabled. This will have the effect of concealing the information that you provided upon registration from users of the site, other than administrators. If you unsubscribe, you will lose access to the parts of the site for which you must provide your account name in order to gain access.
If your account is edited by you, OPENCOURT will not make any attempt to apply your edit to backup copies that OPENCOURT may have of the information, and in the event that it is necessary for OPENCOURT to restore its database from a backup, it is possible that your edit would be lost and the information previous to your edit would be restored. In such an event, OPENCOURT might not be able to determine that this had happened. Your recourse in such a case is to edit the information again.
If you unsubscribe, the information in your user record will not be displayed to users other than administrators. In addition, content or materials you have posted or uploaded to the site will no longer be displayed to users other than administrators, with the exception of certain materials that may be required for proper functioning of the Site. Information, content, and materials may be retained in OPENCOURT’s database and backup copies thereof, for OPENCOURT’s records, and as necessary for OPENCOURT to comply with governmental orders, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, enforce any agreement you have entered into through OPENCOURT’s sites and as otherwise deemed reasonably necessary by OPENCOURT.
Material on this website may link to independently run websites outside of OPENCOURT’s domain. OPENCOURT is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such websites. OPENCOURT encourages you to read the privacy policies of any websites you visit from this website.
