Information Collection & Use

OXIS INTERNATIONAL INC. is the sole owner of the information collected on OxisResearch.com and Oxis.com.

Orders

If you purchase a product or service from us, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order form. You must provide contact information such as name, email, and shipping address.

We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you.

We may use this information to send you promotional emails or our email newsletters unless you request not to receive this information.

Surveys or Contests

From time-to-time we may provide you the opportunity to participate in contests or surveys on our site. If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code).

We may use this information to notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic to personalize the site, and to send participants an email newsletter or promotion.

We may use a third party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using our users’ personally identifiable information for any other purpose. We will not share the personally identifiable information you provide through a contest or survey with other third parties unless we give you prior notice and choice.

Uses of Information

We use personal information to help better communicate with you, and to provide better service for you. Generally, it shows your previous involvement with Oxis International Inc.

We use aggregate information that does not identify individuals to judge the effectiveness of web site pages and promotions.
