Information We Collect

"Personally identifiable information" refers to information that directly identifies you, such as your name, postal address, telephone number and e-mail address.  DP collects personally identifiable information only when knowingly provided by you in online forms or registration forms, in order to respond to inquiries for information about DP. 

"Non-personally identifiable information" refers to information that does not identify you but which can be used to track certain Internet conduct.  For instance, your computer's IP address, your web browser's identity and what pages of the Site you visit may all be used to collect information about how the Site is used without identifying your name or other personally identifiable information.  We collect non-personally identifiable information from you by "passive" means, often through the use of cookies. 

Non-personally identifiable information is collected through a variety of methods including the use of cookies.  A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive.  Many consider the use of cookies to be an industry standard.  You can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse to accept cookies, but if you do so, it is possible that some areas of web sites that use cookies will not function properly when you view them. 

It is possible to link non-personally identifiable information to individual names, but DP does not do so except as may be necessary to investigate illegal conduct or violations of the Terms and Conditions governing this Site, to comply with legal process (e.g. subpoenas) and to assist law enforcement agencies, or as otherwise required by law.

When a user performs a search within the Site, DP may record information identifying the user or linking the user to the search performed.  DP may also record limited information associated with search requests made by a user and use that information to, among other things, solve technical problems with the Site and to calculate overall usage statistics.

How We Use This Information

DP uses your personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information in the following ways:

            Non-personally identifiable information.  We track non-personally identifiable information for internal purposes and to help us interact with visitors to the Site.  We may also share non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form with third parties to illustrate trends and patterns.  We do not use your non-personally identifiable information in any manner that would allow us to identify your personally identifiable information about you. 

             Personally identifiable information.  DP shares your personal information in limited ways.  First, we share this information with certain third parties who help us with fulfillment of site administration.  These parties are contractually obligated to use this information for the sole purposes of assisting us with a specific project. In addition, DP reserves the right to use both your personally identifiable information and your non-personally identifiable information in order to investigate illegal conduct or violations of the Terms and Conditions governing this Site, to comply with legal process (e.g. subpoenas) and to assist law enforcement agencies, or as otherwise required by law.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change the terms of this Privacy Policy, and You should check this page at regular intervals to see whether the terms of this Privacy Policy have changed.  Your continued use of the Site following any changes to the Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such changes.

Links

The Site may contain links to other sites run by third parties unaffiliated with DP.  We are not responsible for the information collection practices or the content of the sites to which we link.

Security

Protecting your information is important to us.  We use secure operating environments to protect the integrity of the information you send to us.  Unfortunately, no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.  As a result, while we are committed to protecting your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.  We also take reasonable precautions that the data we collect is accessible by only those employees with a need to know basis and may not otherwise be reviewed. 

Under 18
We do not knowingly or intentionally collect any personal information from, or market to individuals, under the age of 18. If a child you know of has provided us with personally identifiable information, please contact us immediately so that we may identify the information that needs to be removed.
