HOW DO WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of personal information when submitted. However, due to the inherent open nature of the Internet, we cannot guarantee that communication between users and DC or information stored on DC.com or our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers, and use of our website demonstrates an assumption of this risk. We have put in place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect.

DO WE DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION TO OUTSIDE PARTIES?
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer to outside parties our users’ personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business in the implementation of advertising campaigns or servicing the user, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. Non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising or other uses.

DC may collect and use personal data that users submit in any manner that is consistent with uses stated in this Privacy Policy. Except as expressly stated in this Privacy Policy, DC will never willfully disclose or make personal information about you available to any third party without first having provided notice of this Privacy Policy. DC may share personal information with third parties, in connection with its business, in order to facilitate proper and beneficial use of the services offered. DC may also use personal information to contact you to keep you informed of current and future services and opportunities.

In some instances, DC works with third-party data providers by sharing client CRM lists in order to do modeling and to buy data segments that enrich campaigns. In such instances, such third parties will be restricted to using this data only as directed by DC and only in connection with the business of DC. In the event CRM lists are shared with third parties, DC requires its clients to notify users of their privacy policy and give them an opportunity to opt-out of data sharing.

YOUR CONSENT TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY.
Use of this site signifies your consent, as well as the consent of the company or business for whom you use the site and whose information you submit (if any), to this online privacy policy, including the collection and use of the information by DC, as described in this privacy policy. Continued access and use of this site without acceptance of the terms of this privacy policy relieves DC from any responsibility to the user.

DO WE USE COOKIES & SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES?
Yes. Cookies are small files that a website or its service provider transfers to a computer’s hard drive through a web browser (if allowed) that enables the websites and service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.

We use cookies to compile data about website traffic and website interaction so that we can offer better website experiences. Cookies do not contain any personal information. We collect this information solely to learn more about the visitors to our website and to help us make our site more useful and informative.
