Usually, the only information collected will be your name, business address, mailing address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, and professional licensing information when you knowingly provide this information. In addition, this information may be collected as a result of the services or the products you request information about or purchase from us.

Personal Information Shared with Third Parties

Without a user's express consent, Omega Alpha will not sell, trade, or disclose a user's personally identifiable information to any third party who would attempt to market products or services to the user. However, Omega Alpha may disclose information to a third party that is used to assist carrying out a transaction for you or providing a service to you (for example, packaging, sending, or delivering a purchase or information to you or clearing a credit card transaction). Omega Alpha might be required to disclose information about users of our websites as a result of a subpoena, a search warrant, or some other legal process authorized by a court of law. In addition, Omega Alpha might disclose information about users of our websites to a third party who is assisting us in conducting an investigation about unauthorized activity that constitutes a violation of the policies for using our websites, or when circumstances dictate the need to protect or defend our rights or property.

Security Measures

Omega Alpha regularly implements industry-recommended technological and operational security processes for the purpose of protecting personally identifiable information from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, alteration, or unintentional destruction. Although no security measure can absolutely guarantee against unauthorized uses, Omega Alpha regularly reviews and updates our website security measures for the purpose of providing appropriate security for personally identifiable information.

Access and Accuracy

Omega Alpha only wants to maintain accurate information about the users of our websites. You can request to be provided the individual information that has been gathered about you by contacting Omega Alpha (see the Contact Information section below). Upon receiving proper identification information, Omega Alpha will provide you the personally identifiable information that is maintained about your use of Omega Alpha's websites, or which you have supplied to Omega Alpha's websites. If you find a factual inaccuracy, then you can notify Omega Alpha and the inaccuracy will be corrected.

Omega Alpha will not retain your personally identifiable information longer than is necessary for the purpose it was collected.

Children's Privacy

Omega Alpha's policy is that children under the age of 18 should not send any personally identifiable information to Omega Alpha's websites without a parent's or guardian's consent.

Omega Alpha will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose to any third party any personally identifiable information collected from children under the age of 18.
