We are committed to respecting your privacy and protecting your personal information. This Privacy Statement explains our current information management practices on this website.

Our Commitment to You

We are committed to protecting your privacy while you are browsing our website or engaged in business with us online or offline. Any personal information that is handled by OACUSA is governed by the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (FIPPA).

When you visit our website, we will only collect your personal information with your knowledge and only if it is necessary for us to deliver services or products that require it. For any transactions involving credit cards, we use up-to-date security protocols to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of your information and your connection to our payment system.

Use of Cookies
Use of Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is sent from a Web server and placed on your computer's hard drive; contrary to popular belief, it does not contain software programs and cannot install anything on your computer.

Some sections of our website use cookies to help make your use of our website more convenient. If you choose, they may be used to remember your password and make it easier and faster to log in to these sections (for example: the OACUSA Hub).

You can choose to set your browser to detect and reject cookies, to accept cookies, or to prompt you whenever a site wants to send you a cookie. We recommend that you check your browser's "Help" files or "Options" page to learn how to do this.

Use of Analytics
Use of Web Analytics

We use Google Analytics to help us analyze and understand how our website is used. We use this information, in turn, to improve how our website content is delivered to you.


We look at things like what areas of our website receive the highest (or lowest) amount of traffic and what features are accessed more frequently. This information can help us improve website navigation, page layouts, and features (for example: event registration).


The use of web analytics tools does not allow us or Google to identify individuals.

If you'd like, you can opt-out of analytics activity by setting your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent and block analytics cookies.

Google currently offers a free Google Analytics opt-out tool for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.
