OSCRE International also uses Data about OSCRE Attendees to plan and host corporate events, host online forums and social networks in which event Attendees may participate, and to populate online profiles for Attendees on OSCRE International’s Websites. Additional information on OSCRE International’s privacy practices with respect to Data about OSCRE Attendees may be found in additional privacy statements on the event Websites, as the case may be.

OSCRE International may also use Data about OSCRE Members and Attendees for marketing purposes. For example, OSCRE International may use information you provide to contact you to further discuss your interest in the Services and to send you information regarding OSCRE International, our Services and promotional information.

OSCRE International may also receive information about Members and Attendees from other sources, including third parties from whom we have purchased data, and combine this information with Data we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new Members, and create more tailored advertising to provide products and services that may be of interest to you.

OSCRE International uses credit card information solely to collect payment from Members and Attendees.

OSCRE International uses Website Navigational Information to operate and improve OSCRE International’s Websites. OSCRE International may also use Website Navigational Information alone or in combination with Data about OSCRE Members and Data about OSCRE Attendees to provide personalized information about OSCRE International.

Any other cookies generated by www.OSCRE International .com and not present in this table are functional or targeting cookies.

Third party cookies

OSCRE uses services offered by Google and Google Analytics to collect, aggregate, and analyze data in order to better understand how the site is used. OSCRE uses these cookies to collect anonymous and aggregated data for a limited time. The data is used, for example, to monitor and analyze site use, improve its functions, and more accurately choose content and graphic design, in order to meet visitors' expectations.

Web Beacons
OSCRE International uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Members and Visitors’ usage of OSCRE International’s Websites and interaction with emails from OSCRE International. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Website or Service tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Website or Service tied to the Web beacon. For example, OSCRE may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify OSCRE International when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of OSCRE International’s Websites. OSCRE uses Web beacons to operate and improve OSCRE International’s Websites, Services, and email communications.

Log Files, IP Addresses, URLs, and Other Data
As is true of most Websites, we gather certain information automatically to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer our Websites and Services.  This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages, and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to Internet communications standards, when you visit or use OSCRE International’s Websites and Services, we automatically receive the URL of the website from which you came and the website to which you go when you leave our Website. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us improve our Websites and Services, to track and aggregate non-personal information, and to provide the Websites and Services. For example, OSCRE uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Members and Visitors navigate OSCRE International’s Websites. OSCRE also collects IP addresses from Members when they log into the Services as part of OSCRE International’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.

Social Media Features and Single Sign-on
OSCRE International’s Websites may use social media features, such as the “LinkedIn” button (“Social Media Features”). These features may collect your IP address and which page you are visiting on OSCRE International’s Website and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. You may be given the option by such Social Media Features to post information about your activities on OSCRE International’s Website to a profile page of yours that is provided by a third party social media network in order to share with others within your network. Social Media Features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on OSCRE International’s Website. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of OSCRE International providing the relevant Social Media Features. OSCRE also allows you to log in to certain of our Websites and Services using sign-in services such as LinkedIn. These services will authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal information with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form.

Do Not Track
Currently, various browsers — including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari — offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Websites’ visited by the user about the user's browser DNT preference setting. OSCRE does not currently commit to responding to browsers' DNT signals with respect to OSCRE International's Websites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. OSCRE International takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.

5. Public forums, refer a contact, and Member testimonials

OSCRE International may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on OSCRE International’s Websites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. OSCRE is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
