This Privacy Policy is designed to notify you about how we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process personally identifiable information that we collect on this Site only (“Personal Information”). This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other online or offline collection, use, disclosure or other processing of personally identifiable information by OARC, other than the information directly captured through the Site. OARC reserves the right to fully use, disclose, and process any information collected via the Site that is not in personally identifiable form.


Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Each time you visit the Site, you consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and processing of Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In particular, if you are located in a jurisdiction outside the United States, you consent to the transfer of your Personal Information to our servers and computer systems in the United States, a country that may not provide an equivalent level of data protection to the laws in your home jurisdiction. If you provide any Personal Information that relates to another person, you hereby state and agree that you have obtained proper consent from such person for the use, disclosure, and processing of such Personal Information as described in this Privacy Policy.

The kinds of Personal Information you may provide includes your name, e-mail address, and other details collected through the registration procedure invitees’ e-mail addresses, messages to invitees, photos, and other information that you include in your Submissions. We use this Personal Information to manage, develop and control the Site, send an invitation to an invitee, post or otherwise disseminate your Submissions on the Site or to promote the Site. You acknowledge and accept that any third party navigating through the Internet may be shown and eventually gain access to Personal Information (including access through the use of search engines or similar software).

We also may disclose Personal Information as necessary or appropriate:

  • to protect the security of the Site;
  • to protect ourselves and our affiliated companies against liability;
  • to respond to subpoenas, judicial processes, or legitimate requests by law enforcement officials;
  • if we believe in good faith that the law requires it;
  • where we believe in good faith that it is in the interest of the health, safety or protection of any third party.


Transmissions over the Internet are never 100% secure or error-free. As a result, we do not, and cannot, guarantee the security, accuracy, or completeness of Personal Information. However, we do maintain reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, alteration, or unauthorized disclosure or access.


We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time and in our sole discretion, except where prior notice or consent is required by law.
