CLA-OC collects personal data, such as name, address, phone number, or e-mail address, only when it is voluntarily submitted to us. We collect this data in a database and may use it to contact visitors who have provided this data to us. We will not sell this information to anyone, nor will we provide it to third parties without our visitors’ express consent, unless required by law, regulation or government agency. In addition, the employees of CLA-OC are committed to protecting the privacy of visitors who provide information to us.

Collection and Use of Information

We collect personal information through this web site only if it is voluntarily provided to us. If a visitor does not wish to provide the information requested, or if he/she has concerns about maintaining the confidentiality of any information, we suggest that the visitor not provide the information. We will use this information only for the purpose for which it has been provided to us.

CLA-OC’s web site also uses information in aggregate form to track numbers of visitors to our site and numbers of visitors to various sections of our site for the purpose of determining trends and visitor needs. Aggregate information is analyzed and used as input to help us improve our site. No personally identifiable information is available or used in this process.

We may change our Privacy Policy from time to time, and our changes are effective after we provide you with at least thirty days notice of the changes by posting the changes on our web site. We refer you to the section of this Statement, “Use of This Web Site,” for further provisions that relate to this web site and its use, including but not limited to limitations on our liability.

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection. An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser. When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed. If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
