Submitting information is strictly voluntary. By doing so, you are giving OUCPM your permission to use the information for the intended purpose. If you do not want to give OUCPM permission to use your information, simply do not provide it. However, not providing certain information may result in OUCPM's inability to provide you with the information or services you desire.
There are several types of information we collect. These include:

- Personal Information for CME tracking
Automatically Collected Information
We collect and temporarily store certain technical information about your visit for use in site management and security purposes. This information includes:
- The Internet domain from which you access our Web site (for example, "xcompany.com" if you use a private Internet access account, or "yourschool.edu" if you connect from an educational domain);
- The IP address (a unique number for each computer connected to the Internet) from which you access our Web site;
- The type of browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer) used to access our site;
- The operating system (Windows, Unix) used to access our site;
- The date and time you access our site;
- The URLs of the pages you visit;
- Your username, if it was used to log in to the Web site; and
- If you visited this Web site from another Web site, the URL of the forwarding site.
This information is only used to help us make our site more useful for you. With this data we learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.
Except for authorized law enforcement investigations, no attempts are made to identify individual users or their usage habits. Raw data logs are retained temporarily as required for security and site management purposes only.
Information Collected for Tracking and Customization (Cookies)
A cookie is a small file that a Web site transfers to your computer to allow it to remember specific information about your session while you are connected. Your computer will only share the information in the cookie with the Web site that provided it, and no other Web site can request it. There are two types of cookies, session and persistent. Session cookies last only as long as your Web browser is open. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for longer periods of time.
OUCPM Web sites may use session cookies for technical purposes such as to enable better navigation through the site, or to allow you to customize your preferences for interacting with the site. A few OUCPM sites may also make use of persistent cookies to remember you between visits so, for example, you can save your customized preference settings for future visits. Each OUCPM site using persistent cookies identifies itself as doing so.
At no time is your private information, whether stored in persistent cookies or elsewhere, shared with third parties who have no right to that information. If you do not wish to have session or persistent cookies stored on your machine, you can turn them off in your browser. However, this may affect the functioning of some OUCPM Web sites.
Visitors have the option to voluntarily provide OUCPM with additional information through the OKLMS web site. OUCPM will retain information volunteered by the user, such as e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, registration information, etc. This will be used by OUCPM as a means to communicate with the user if appropriate, and will only be shared with other government agencies if your inquiry relates to that agency or as otherwise required by law. For the purposes of awarding CME credits personal information is transferred to the OU HSC CME office.
This information will not be shared with outside commercial entities.
If during your visit to our web site you participate by completing and submitting an online form or survey or send an e-mail message, the following additional information will be collected:
- The email address and contents of the e-mail, for those who communicate with us via e-mail.
- Information volunteered in response to a survey.
- Information volunteered through an online form for any other purpose.
The information collected is not limited to text characters and may include audio, video, and graphic information formats that you send us.
Users are cautioned that the collection of personal information requested or volunteered by children online or by e-mail will be treated the same as information given by an adult and may be subject to public access. If we discover or are otherwise notified that we have received any such information from a child in violation of this policy, we will delete that information. If you believe that OUCPM has collected information from or about a child under the age of thirteen, please contact us immediately.
