Users may access and read some material on OZMO’s websites without registering or providing OZMO with any personally identifying information. In such cases, no more information will be collected from such users than is typically collected in server logs by websites. This includes your network Internet protocol (IP) addresses, cookie information and the pages you request.
More information about the collection of these types of information is provided below.
When you register with OZMO, however, we may ask you to provide certain personal information, such as your name, organization name, e-mail address and other identifying information. While it is completely optional for you to provide this information, you will not be able to access or participate in certain aspects of the OZMO websites and services unless you provide the requested registration information.
OZMO collects this information in order to record and support your activities and those of other OZMO users. For example, we may use the information you provide to create and manage your user account, identify content as yours, process transactions conducted through our services, and keep you informed about
new developments or services relating to OZMO.

Your Submissions Are Not Anonymous
OZMO reserves the right to permanently delete content submitted by you in response to legal action or under other circumstances it deems appropriate, but has no obligation to do so.

If you are not logged on to the website, you will be identified by your network IP address. If you are logged on, you will be identified by your user name. Your user name may be your real name or a pseudonym chosen by you when you register, provided that the user name may not be deceptive or misleading. It may be possible for others to connect your network IP address with your identity, so if you are very concerned about privacy, you may wish to utilize a pseudonym for your user name. To further preserve your privacy and account security, you
should remember to log out after each OZMO session, particularly if you are logging on from a public computer.
Each registered user will have a user profile page that is personal to such user. You may choose to post additional information about yourself, including personal information such as your photograph or email address, in your user profile. Other users will not have direct access to your personal email address or other personal information unless you make it available through your user profile or otherwise; however, other users may still contact you by email using the internal email feature provided on the OZMO site.

anything you post in your user profile will be available for viewing by other OZMO users, so you should exercise good judgment when posting any personally identifying or other sensitive information.
