Information We Collect About You

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies.

Oceanside SOAR reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites in order to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. Oceanside SOAR reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.
