Privacy Policy



OahuMPO takes your privacy seriously, and has published this Privacy Policy to explain how it treats all information you may submit to the Site. OahuMPO maintains high professional standards with regard to the confidentiality and protection of user privacy.

The collection of personally identifiable information is required in order for OahuMPO to provide OahuMPO Services. However, OahuMPO does not share your personally identifiable information with any other party except in the provision of OahuMPO Services with notice to you identifying such other party by name, location, and contact. The following are certain situations in which OahuMPO may collect personally identifiable information about you:
1. In order to use OahuMPO Services, you must transmit, submit or post personally identifiable information. OahuMPO will collect that information you provide and use it to provide OahuMPO Services. OahuMPO retains this information as necessary to process payments, resolve disputes, provide customer support and troubleshoot problems as permitted by law and pursuant to the Terms of Use
2. OahuMPO may collect personally identifiable information from you to register you for an electronic mailing list. When you register online with OahuMPO, OahuMPO asks for personally identifiable information such as your name, address, e-mail address, occupation, industry, and other demographic information.
3. If you send OahuMPO personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, or if other users or third parties send OahuMPO correspondence about your activities or postings on the Site, OahuMPO may choose to collect such information into a file specific to you.

OahuMPO uses your personally identifiable information to provide OahuMPO Services. Your personally identifiable information may also be aggregated and used by OahuMPO for market research, project planning, troubleshooting problems, detecting and protecting against error, fraud or other criminal activity, to enforce OahuMPO’s Terms of Use, for other internal purposes, and as otherwise described to you at the time of collection. OahuMPO will obtain your consent for any use of your personally identifiable information beyond the original uses for which you provided your consent.
You agree that OahuMPO may use personal information about you to improve its marketing and promotional efforts, analyze site usage, improve its Content and Services, customize the Content and layout of the Site, and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy. You also agree that OahuMPO may use your personal information to contact you and deliver information to you that may be targeted to your interests, such as administrative notices and communications correlative, or relevant to your use of the Site. By accepting the Terms of Use, including this Privacy Policy, you expressly agree to receive this information.

OahuMPO does not share, loan, rent or sell your personally identifiable information except as required to provide OahuMPO Services. The following describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed in the normal scope of business to provide OahuMPO Services:
1. OahuMPO may aggregate personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for their marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, OahuMPO does not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Information such as your name, e-mail address, password, and credit and banking information, are not disclosed to these third parties in a personally identifiable manner without your explicit consent.
2. There may be services offered by third parties that OahuMPO refers to as third party service providers that may be complementary to your use of the Site. If you choose to use these third party services, disclose information to third party service providers, and/or grant them permission to collect information about you, then their use of your information is governed by the privacy policies of such third parties. OahuMPO does not disclose your personally identifiable information to third party service providers unless you provide your explicit consent. With your consent, OahuMPO may provide some of your personal information to third party service providers offering such services, for your convenience. To prevent OahuMPO’s disclosure of your personally identifiable information to a third party service provider, you can decline such consent or simply not use their services. Because OahuMPO does not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should evaluate their practices before deciding to use their services.
3. OahuMPO may use third parties that OahuMPO refers to as “internal-service providers” to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the OahuMPO Services, business, or operations (e.g., technology, newsletters/alerts, analytic tools, advertising management), and therefore OahuMPO may provide some of your personal information directly to these internal service providers. These internal service providers are subject to confidentiality agreements with OahuMPO and other legal restrictions that prohibit their use of the information OahuMPO provides to them for any other purpose except to facilitate the specific outsourced OahuMPO -related operation, unless you have explicitly agreed or given your prior permission to them for additional uses. In some instances, the internal-service provider may collect information directly from you. In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the internal-service provider, and all additional information you provide them and their additional uses will be strictly up to you. If you provide additional information to an internal-service provider directly, then their use of your personally identifiable information is governed by such service provider’s privacy policy.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, OahuMPO reserves the right (and you authorize OahuMPO) to share or disclose your personally identifiable information when OahuMPO determines, in its sole discretion, that the disclosure of your personally identifiable information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against you if:
1. You are or may be violating this Privacy Policy or other Terms of Use
2. You are interfering with another’s rights or property, including, without limitation, OahuMPO’s rights or property;
3. You are violating any applicable law, rule or regulation;
4. Necessary or required by any applicable law, rule or regulation; and/or
5. Requested by authorities in the event of any act of terrorism or instance of local, regional or national emergency.
Personally identifiable information and other personal information collected from you may also be transferred to a third party as a result of a sale, acquisition, merger, reorganization, other transfer or bankruptcy (a “Transfer”) involving OahuMPO and/or its affiliates. OahuMPO specifically reserves the right to transfer personally identifiable information collected from the Site, and any of its databases, together with any personally identifiable information contained therein, to a third party in connection with a Transfer, and nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to interfere with the ability of OahuMPO to transfer all or part of its business and/or assets (including its URL and the Site) to an affiliate or independent third party at any time, for any purpose, without any limitation whatsoever.
In addition, due to the existing regulatory environment, OahuMPO cannot ensure that all of your private communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), OahuMPO may be forced to disclose personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Therefore, although OahuMPO uses industry standard practices to protect your privacy, OahuMPO does not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or private communications will always remain private.

You may at any time request a copy of OahuMPO’s record of your personally identifiable information, change your personally identifiable information or use preferences, or opt-out of OahuMPO’s use of your personally identifiable information by contacting OahuMPO via any of the methods set forth below:
