We may transfer any Personal Information that we have about you in connection with a merger or sale involving all or part of our business or as part of a corporate reorganization or stock sale or other change in corporate control.
We try to ensure that the Personal information that we collect is accurate, complete, and up-to-date as possible in order to properly satisfy the purposes for which it is to be used. If we are unable to verify your Personal Information or contact you, we may be limited in our ability to provide you with our services. We may also contact you to verify data for Reward Eligibility.
Protecting your Personal Information is very important to us, so we have taken the necessary organizational, technological and physical safeguards to protect it. When you submit sensitive information via the Sense Website or the App, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information, that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for "https" at the beginning of the address of the Web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
Any service providers we share your Personal Information with, are held to the same standard as us and are bound by our Privacy Notice and governing law.
Upon request, OSI will provide an explanation of its Notice with respect to the management of Personal Information. You can contact our Privacy Officer with any inquiries or complaints or if you require further information. Our goal is that your Personal Information shall be as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes for which it is to be used.
If you would like to obtain a copy of the Personal Information held about you by us, or update, correct, or delete any information that you have provided to us through your use of the App or the Sense Website, or otherwise, or if you have any questions or suggestions for improving this Privacy Notice, please contact us. If you have questions about unsubscribing from email or other communications, you may do so using the email below in the Contact Us section. We may only deny access to your Personal Information when such denial is: (1) required or authorized by law; (2) when granting you access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy unless the requested information is severable from the personal information of other people; and (3) to protect our confidential commercial information. If we deny your request for access to, or refuse a request to correct information, we shall explain why.
Any individual may address a written challenge concerning our compliance with this Privacy Notice to our Privacy Officer at the contact information found at the end of this Notice.
OSI will investigate all written complaints. Should we find that a complaint has reasonable grounds, OSI will take all appropriate steps to correct the information and amend the Notice or practice as required and will notify the individual about the outcome.
Changing our privacy agreement
From time to time, we may update or make amendments to the Notice to comply with any changes in legislation or to take into consideration any other issues that may arise. Should we make any changes, we will post the revised Notice on the Sense Website and/or provide you with a notification through the App. We encourage you to check back often and keep yourself informed about our Notice. As we continue to serve you and where changes have been made to this Notice, our continued business relationship constitutes acceptance of those changes.
