We respect your and our privacy. We do not rent or sell your personal information. By personal information, we mean your name, email address, phone number, mailing address or any other personally identifiable information. We do not collect such data without your initiation, such as when you send an email to Osocio, ask the comment system to remember you or sign up for the Osocio membership.

We do place cookies on your computer but as least as possible. Our cookies come from our publishing system, WordPress, our traffic counter Statcounter. We recently stopped using Google Analytics because of new US legislation and your privacy. The cookies coming from WordPress are there simply to remember your name or email address (so you don’t have to enter it the next time) if you post a comment to a story and only when you ask the comment system to remember your information. (For this feature a cookie is also set from Gravatar.) They appear on your cookie list as “” followed by “mt” and then a few random letters. The cookies from our traffic counter simply let us know how many (not who) people visit the site so we have an idea of site growth, ability to set ad costs and manage the computer the website is served from.

Third Party Cookies

Some external content tools and social networks may put cookies on our site (for example, advertisers from Google). However, Osocio has no access to or control over these cookies, once we have given permission for them to set cookies for advertising. This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by Osocio only and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Third Party Advertising

Some ads appearing on this Web site are delivered to users by Google, among other services. Information about users’ visit to this site, such as number of times they have viewed an ad (but not username, date of birth, or any other personal information), is used to serve ads to users on this site. For more information about Google and cookies, contact Google.

Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers we use log files. We used the above mentioned Urchin to manage these log files. These files include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses, etc. are not linked to personally identifiable information. We may use a tracking utility that uses log files to analyze user movement.

Legal Disclaimer

Though we make every effort to preserve user privacy, Osocio may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on Osocio.

Business Transitions

In the event Osocio goes through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of a portion of its assets, users’ personal information will, in most instances, be part of the assets transferred.


Osocio contains links to other sites. Please be aware that Osocio is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Osocio.

Notification of Changes

Whenever Osocio changes its privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it.

We take your privacy very seriously. If you have any concerns, please write us.

Things you can do yourself

You can protect your privacy best with an addition like extensions to your browser. Our favorite is Privacy Badger from the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
