Personal Information Omega Gathers

The information we receive from you helps us personalize and continually improve your Omega experience. Here are the types of information we gather.

  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Websites or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as sending you catalogs, customizing your Omega experience, improving our customer service, and communicating with you.
  • Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Omega's Websites uses temporary cookies. Cookies are pieces of information that a website sends to your computer while you are viewing the website. These pieces of information allow the website to remember important information that will make your use of the website more useful.

Sharing Information

Information about our participants and visitors is an important part of our business. We often share or 'rent' information for mailings with other like-minded organizations and faculty whose programs or products are of a similar nature to our own. We hope that you appreciate hearing from these organizations and faculty.

Omega sometimes employs third parties to perform services for us. For example, we hire agencies to help administer consumer promotions and to analyze data. Like many other merchants, we also participate in cooperative database services. These parties have agreed to hold this information in confidence and not use it for any purpose except to carry out the requested service(s).

  • Login Profile: Some of Omega's Websites may provide you with the opportunity to create a login profile that allows you to save your contact and other information for speedier registration. We recommend you keep this information current. Omega is not responsible for updating login profile information.
  • Passwords: To provide you with an increased level of security, access to your login profile is protected with a password you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. Your password will never be asked through unsolicited communication from Omega.
