Our commitment to privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This notice applies to all information that may be collected or submitted on our website.
The types of personal information that may be collected are name, address, email, and phone number. We use the information you provide about yourself when requesting information or placing an order only to fulfill the request. We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. We will not share, rent, or sell your contact information to outside parties.
The way we use information
We use non-identifying and aggregate information to improve the content of our website, to communicate with visitors about their inquiries, and to notify visitors about updates and other information on new products and services pertinent to the content of our website.
Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
Our commitment to data security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
To process a charitable contribution, it is necessary for OSA to gather the visitor's name, email address, complete mailing address, phone number, and credit card information. This data is used to verify and protect the identity of our visitors and complete your transaction.

OSA uses your credit card information only for the purpose of processing your donation. We will not disclose this information except as necessary to process your donation and we do not store it once your donation has been processed, except when requested for recurring donations.
As a financial contributor, we automatically enter your email address into our quarterly newsletter list to ensure you receive updates on our work. You can opt out of these emails at any time by following the unsubscribe directions that appear at the bottom of the emails.
