We have implemented reasonable administrative, technical, and physical security measures to protect your Personal Information against the unauthorised access, destruction or alteration of your information.

So, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your transmissions to us and of your Personal Information that we store.


The Platform will contain links to other websites not owned or controlled by Oscar. Oscar does not have any control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies, web beacons or other files on your device, or collect and solicit Personal Information from you. They will have their own rules about the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information. We encourage you to read the terms of use and privacy policies of the other websites that you visit.

Parts of the Platform implement Google Maps services, including Google Maps API(s). Your use of Google Maps/Earth is subject to Google’s terms of use and Google’s privacy policy, as may be amended by Google from time to time.

By continuing to use our Platform and Services you will be deemed to have accepted the amended the privacy policy.


Oscar uses "cookies" in conjunction with the Platform to obtain information. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device for record-keeping purposes.

Your browser may allow you to set how it handles cookies, such as declining all cookies or prompting you to decide whether to accept each cookie.

Oscar cookies and third party cookies

Oscar may place our cookies on your device via the Platform. Accordingly, our Privacy Policy will apply to our treatment of the information we obtain via our cookies.

We may also allow our business partners to place cookies on your device. For example, we use Google Analytics for web analytics, and so Google may also set cookies on your device. As further explained below, third parties may also place cookies on your device for advertising purposes.

There are two types of cookies used on the Platform, namely “persistent cookies” and “session cookies”.

Session cookies will normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies will remain on your device after you close your browser, and can be used again the next time you access the Platform.

Other technologies

The Platform may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs to obtain Log Data about users. We may also use web beacons and tracking URLs in our messages to you to determine whether you have opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.

Uses for Oscar cookies

Oscar uses cookies for a number of purposes, such as the following:

1. to enable, facilitate and streamline the functioning of the Platform across different webpages and browser sessions.

2. to simplify your access to and use of the Platform and make it more seamless.

3. to monitor and analyse the performance, operation and effectiveness of the Platform, so that we can improve and optimize it.

4. to show you content (which may include advertisements) that is more relevant to you.

Uses for third party cookies

Our partners’ cookies are intended to obtain information to help them provide services to Oscar. For example, third party companies and individuals we engage to provide services to us may track your behavior on our Platform to market and advertise Oscar listings or services to you on the Platform and third party websites. Third parties that use cookies and other tracking technologies to deliver targeted advertisements on our Platform and/or third party websites may offer you a way to prevent such targeted advertisements by opting-out at the websites of industry groups such as the Network Advertising Initiative and/or the Digital Advertising Alliance. You may also be able to control advertising cookies provided by publishers, for example Google’s Ad Preference Manager. Please note that even if you choose to opt-out of receiving targeted advertising, you may still receive advertising on the Platform – it just will not be tailored to your interests.

In addition, Facebook places a cookie via the Platform that allows Facebook to obtain aggregated, non-Personal Information to optimize their services. For example, if a user clicks on an advertisement for the Oscar mobile app on Facebook and subsequently installs the app, this cookie will inform Facebook that a user (who is not personally identified) has installed the app after clicking on the advertisement. This cookie may also inform Facebook that a user is using the app, without identifying the specific actions taken by the user in the app.

Disabling Cookies

Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser setting to decline cookies by visiting the Help portion of your browser’s toolbar. Flash cookies operate differently than browser cookies, and cookie management tools available in a web browser will not remove flash cookies.
