  • We will only retain personal information as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes.
  • We will collect personal information by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the individual concerned.
  • Personal data should be relevant to the purposes for which it is to be used, and, to the extent necessary for those purposes, should be accurate, complete, and up-to-date.
  • We will protect personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

We are committed to conducting our organization in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Website Information Collection

RSO collects general information to help us identify traffic patterns on our website. Information regarding the web pages visited, length of visit and time of day, dates, first pages entered, browsers used, geographic location and area, and referring pages is collected through general internet tracking mechanisms. We may also collect information when you complete quick polls, surveys, or forms. All information collected is anonymous, except where you have explicitly identified yourself.

We use the information collected solely to help improve your experience, by determining what visitors would like to see on our website.

We do not store or make use of user-specific personal information, unless it is explicitly provided by the user.

Email Information Collection

For each visitor who signs up for our newsletter, we collect only the information that is requested on the list sign-up form. Required fields are generally denoted with an asterisk (*).

We collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email and information volunteered, such as, but not limited to, list sign-up information, survey information, and/or site registrations. We collect standard information that includes opens, closes, click-throughs, bounces, and unsubscribes to determine the effectiveness of our email efforts.
