The Information We Collect
How We Collect Information
The length of time a cookie will remain on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a persistent or session cookie. Session cookies will only remain on your computer or mobile device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies remain stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
Clear GIFs: Clear GIFs are small graphic images (in GIF or other image format) placed on a webpage, web-based document, or in an email message. Clear GIFs are invisible to the user because they are typically very small (e.g., only 1-by-1 pixel) and either transparent or the same colour as the background of the webpage, document or email message. We do not use clear GIFs to collect Personal Information about you. We may, however, use clear GIFs to capture Non-Personal Information, such as statistical usage information for pages, features or other elements on the Channels or through OOSys Canada Inc. email messages that are delivered to you. We may correlate this information to a user to personalize user experience and for statistical analysis of user experiences on the Channels or in our emails.
Website Logs: OOSys Canada Inc. may collect Non-Personal Information in the form of website logs (collectively “Logs”). These Logs are files that record activity on the Channels and gather statistics about users’ activities, such as how many users have visited the Channels, how often, how many “hits” a particular webpage has received, type and quality of the user’s Internet connection to the Channels, and identification of the user’s hardware and software. The entries comprising the Logs may contain IP addresses, user IDs, and identification of the Internet service provider that provides your connection to the Internet. Generally, we use the Logs to operate and improve the Channels, to identify the popularity of certain features, to assist with internal marketing and demographic studies, and to enable us to assess overall efficiency and activity on the Channels.
Communications Within the Channels: OOSys Canada Inc. may collect information that you submit when posting messages through a Channel forum. Any user communications within the Channels, such as on the forums, should not be considered private and such communications may be viewed and saved by others. OOSys Canada Inc. is under no obligation to monitor user communications but reserves the right to act on reports of misconduct or abuse of communications privileges. Because communications may be widely viewed and/or heard, we caution users to avoid revealing any Personal Information on the Channel forums.

PCI & Data Security Standard
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of industry-mandated requirements for any business that handles, processes, or stores credit cards – regardless of the business’s size or location. The PCI Security Standards Council was founded by 5 of the major card brands, and they each share equal responsibilities in the council’s work.
When applicable, e-commerce related exchanges on our platforms follow the PCI DSS standard. OOSys Canada Inc. is PCI DSS compliant which means that our security policies, and procedures meet the requisite standard.
OOSys Canada Inc. does not store any credit card information but uses a validated Level 1 PCI DSS compliant service provider.
Commitment to Data Security
We currently use the Apache SSL Web Server to protect the information that you provide to us through our website. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypts information and keeps the data private and confidential between your computer and the OOSys Canada Inc. servers. This technology helps to make it safer to transmit your credit card number over the Internet.
Our solutions are PCI compliant which means that our servers do not hold financial information on our servers. Instead, we send that information directly to the payment providers so that money is deposited directly into the sellers’ account. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information and email addresses submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute confidentiality or security.
