Our Privacy Policy


Our Privacy Policy informs you of the policies and practices we have in place relating to the management of personal information at OPMG. The word "information" means personal, financial and other details about you that you provide to us and the details about you that we obtain from others outside our organization, including through the services you use. This policy applies to all website visitors. It consists of three key principles:

  • Collecting and using information
    Either before or when we collect information about you, we will explain how we intend to use it. We will limit the information we collect to what we need for the purposes for which it is being collected, and we will use it only for those purposes. We may provide your information to other persons in situations where:
    • We have your consent
    • The other parties are our suppliers or agents who assist us in serving you
    • We are required or permitted to do so by law or applicable regulations and self-regulatory organizations
  • Protection of Your Information
    We will protect your information with appropriate safeguards and security measures. We will retain your information only for the time it is required and for the purposes we explain.
  • Respecting and responding to your privacy concerns
    We will explain your options for refusing or withdrawing consent to the collection, use and release of your information and we will record and respect your choices. We will investigate and respond to your concerns about any aspect of our handling of your information.

Links to Other Sites

Links to other websites are provided throughout OPMG's website. These sites may have their own privacy policies in place, which we would recommend you review. OPMG is not responsible for the content of the linked sites or any use of those sites.

Information Collected in Emails and Web Forms

Should you choose to electronically provide us with personal information – via email or by forms submitted through our website – we will use that information to respond to your message and to help us get the information you have requested. We will store your communication and our reply in case further correspondence is required. OPMG does not collect personal information for commercial marketing or distribution to any private organizations.

Messages sent via the Internet are generally unencrypted. If you are concerned about sending your personal information to us via the Internet, you can use another method such as fax or regular mail. We recommend that you use caution when forwarding free-format email messages to us and that you do not include confidential information (such as account numbers) in those messages, as they are not encrypted.

You may request access to your personal information by contacting our Administration Manager.
You also have the right to know:

  • The methods by which we collected the information
  • The purposes for which we are using the information
  • To whom the information has been disclosed

Any request that you make should be sufficiently detailed so that we may properly respond to your request. When providing your personal information, we will edit certain information as required or authorized by law, including the personal information of other individuals – information that may be subject to investigation.

If you believe that any of the information that we have collected about you is inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to ask us to change it.
