Protection of Information
Personally Identifiable Information
In general, you can browse our web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. Oceanus Consulting collects no personally identifiable information about the consumers who browse our web site unless they decide to supply that information to us in an on-line form or by e-mail. Web site visitors who do not want their personally identifiable information collected on-line are asked not to submit such information to Oceanus Consulting.
The Oceanus Consulting World Wide Web site collects personal information (such as name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address) from web site visitors only when visitors provide such information voluntarily. Oceanus Consulting gathers only the customer information that is needed to administer our business and provide superior customer service.
Third parties that require access to Oceanus Consulting customer information in order to provide operational or other support services to Oceanus Consulting must agree to safeguard customer information in strict compliance with Oceanus Consulting policy. We only provide third-parties with the minimum amount of personally identifiable information necessary to complete the requested service, product, or transaction.
Use and Collection of Customer Information
Oceanus Consulting does not rent, sell, or exchange personally identifiable information about our customers with other entities. Access to information about Oceanus Consulting customers acquired through our web site is restricted to the Oceanus Consulting business only.
Accuracy and Security of Customer Information
Oceanus Consulting enforces its policies in regard to gathering, access, and use of personal customer information by its principals. Oceanus Consulting makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that the customer information it maintains is accurate, timely, and secure.
Our web hosting service maintains appropriate security measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of information that we collect on our web site and through e-mail. We use industry standard encryption techniques to protect customer data provided to us via e-mail and through forms on our web site.
E-mail that you send us is not necessarily secure against interception. It is your responsibility to avoid including sensitive information in your e-mail communications. If your e-mail communication includes sensitive information, such as your bank account number, Social Security number, or credit or charge card numbers, Oceanus Consulting requests that you contact us by mail or telephone as a better alternative.
If the personally identifiable information Oceanus Consulting has gathered from you changes or you would like to revise such information, Oceanus Consulting requests that you send corrections to email@example.com or contact us by phone at 781-316-2557.
To be removed from our records, send an e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us by phone at 781-316-2557. Oceanus Consulting informs such visitors that it will make all reasonable efforts to delete the indicated contact information as requested.
Oceanus Consulting has no intention of collecting personally identifiable information (name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) from children (individuals under the age of 13) on-line and using that information for marketing purposes.
If a child has provided Oceanus Consulting with an e-mail address, Oceanus Consulting requests that a parent or guardian of the child contact Oceanus Consulting at email@example.com or contact us by phone at 781-316-2557 to have the e-mail address deleted from Oceanus Consulting records. Oceanus Consulting informs customers that it will make all reasonable efforts to remove such e-mail addresses from its records as expeditiously as possible.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive to record anonymous information about your computer session.
Oceanus Consulting employs the use of Google Analytics to help us understand how visitors engage with this web site. Google Analytics collects information anonymously, and reports website trends without identifying individual visitors. Google Analytics uses a cookie to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page.

Information Collected through Advertising Programs
Oceanus Consulting also uses third-party advertising companies, such as the Google AdSense program, to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use anonymous information (not including personally identifiable information such as your name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services.
If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, review the following privacy policies:
Google uses the DoubleClick DART advertising cookie to help Google AdSense advertisers and publishers serve and manage ads across the web. For more information about the DART advertising cookie, visit the DoubleClick Privacy FAQ.
