Information Origin collects and how it is used
Origin collects certain information to enable you to take full advantage of our offerings when you register at our site, participate in our contests, surveys, promotions, or activities, or otherwise communicate with us. If you choose, you can visit our website without providing us with any information about yourself. Origin collects both personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information from users of its website.
Personally Identifiable Information
When you register with Origin, we require you to give us contact information (such as your name, e-mail address, and physical address).
We may require additional information for specific promotions or contests run on our site.
We use the contact information we collect to connect you with a service provider, and to send you, if you so choose, information about our company, newsletters, promotional materials, and information out our services.
We may also use the information we collect, in combination with outside records, to notify you about important changes to the website, new Origin services and products, and special offers and information we think you’ll find valuable.
A customer care representative or service provider may contact you in order to fulfill a service you purchased or to provide information you requested.
Non-personally Identifiable Information
We may collect certain non-personally identifiable information about you when you visit our site, such as the type of browser you are using (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer), the type of operating system you are using, the referring site from which you came (e.g., a partner site), and the domain name of your internet service provider (e.g., America Online, EarthLink).
We use the non-personally identifiable information that we collect in the aggregate to improve the design and content of our site. We also use this information to analyze site usage.
Information partners collect
Our site contains links to other websites whose information practices may be different than ours. You should consult the other sites’ privacy policies, as we have no control over information that you may submit or that the third parties collect on those sites.
We may offer promotions or content that is sponsored by, or co-branded with, identified third parties. By virtue of these relationships, these third parties may obtain personally identifiable information that you submit. Origin has no control over the third party’s use of this information.
Commitment to the security of your information
When you place orders or access your account information, we use a secure server. The secure server software, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, digital certificates protect all of the customer transactional data we collect against unauthorized access. Origin digital certificates are issued by VeriSign, one of the most established issuers of digital certificates. Additionally, we use firewall security and limit data access to protect your personally identifiable information.
How to update/change your preferences
Origin may send communications, promotional information, and/or newsletters to our registrants. You can choose to not receive communications from us. We provide the following options for reviewing and updating the personally identifiable information that we collect and maintain, including options for communications, news, and special offers. To review and update your choices, please send us an e-mail with your changes, titled “Profile Update”. You may also call a customer care specialist at 866-696-2847.
