The Options Price Reporting Authority, LLC ("OPRA") respects your expectations of privacy. This Policy describes the ways in which we use information provided by users of this website.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

In general, you can visit OPRA's website without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. You will know personal information is being collected because you will be asked to provide it. If you communicate with us via e-mail, you may need to supply us with personal information relating to the purpose of your communication in order to enable us to provide you with a useful reply. In some cases we might forward an e-mail sent to us to a third party to facilitate an appropriate response.

Personal information that you provide may be used for marketing and promotional purposes, but only by OPRA. We do not provide personally identifiable information collected by this website to any third party for such third party's direct marketing purposes. OPRA might use personal information provided to us by a user of this website to further inform and educate users about U.S. listed options, or to improve the website or the information that OPRA makes publicly available. However, if we were to do so it would be in anonymous form and we would not identify the source of the information provided to us.

You should note that e-mail is not necessarily secure from interception. The e-mail address or addresses identified in the OPRA website do not have any encryption capability. You should consider whether information of a particularly personal or sensitive nature is appropriate to include in an e-mail.
