Your Choices About Privacy

You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Oxdia Sites, in which case Oxdia may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your personal profile information and email preferences at any time by visiting your settings. Please note that media files uploaded by Users to the Oxdia Sites cannot be removed and remain subject to our Terms of Use.

Please contact Oxdia with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices.

Third-party Advertisers, Links to Other Sites

Oxdia allows other companies, called third-party ad servers or ad networks, to serve advertisements within the Oxdia Sites. These third-party ad servers or ad networks use technology to send, directly to your browser, the advertisements and links that appear on the Oxdia Sites. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use other technologies (such as cookies, JavaScript, or Web Beacons) to measure the effectiveness of their advertisements and to personalize the advertising content you see.

Oxdia does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out. However, please note that if an advertiser asks Oxdia to show an advertisement to a certain audience (for example, men ages 18-34) or audience segment (for example, men ages 18-24 who have viewed certain channels of content) and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. The advertiser may also use information regarding your use of the Oxdia Sites, such as the number of times you viewed an ad (but not any personally identifiable information), to determine which ads to deliver to you.

You should consult the respective privacy policies of these third-party ad servers or ad networks (see links below) for more information on their practices and for instructions on how to opt-out of certain practices. Oxdia's privacy policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, such other advertisers or web sites.

Currently, Oxdia has relationships with the following third-party ad servers or ad networks:



Our Commitment To Data Security

Oxdia uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Oxdia and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission of information, Oxdia makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards.

If Oxdia learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Oxdia may post a notice on the Oxdia Sites if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach (or to withdraw your consent from receiving electronic notice) you should notify us.

Our Commitment To Childrens' Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Oxdia does not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information or non-personally-identifiable information on the Oxdia Sites from persons under 13 years of age, and no part of our website is directed to persons under 13. If you are under 13 years of age, then please do not use or access the Oxdia Sites at any time or in any manner. If Oxdia learns that personally identifiable information of persons under 13 years of age has been collected on the Oxdia Sites without verified parental consent, then Oxdia will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. Oxdia is intended for use by college/university students. Examples of supported institutions are Carleton University, McMaster University, McGill University, University of Waterloo, University of British Columbia, York University.

Special Note to International Users

The Oxdia Sites are hosted in the United States and are intended for and directed to Users in Canada and the United States.

In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

In the event that Oxdia is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
