1. Types of Info Collected
We collect two types of information about our users: Non-Personally Identifiable (“Anonymous”) Information and Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”)
Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) is any information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or your telephone number. This personal information may be requested when you fill out an online inquiry, obtain services from DFO50, subscribe to our email newsletter, or when you contact us. We may ask you to provide us with personal information on a voluntary basis in certain areas of our Website. Examples of the types of PII you may be asked to provide include: “Contact Data,” such as your name, phone numbers, mailing address and e-mail addresses, “Demographic Data,” such as your age or birthday, gender, and zip code, “Financial Data,” such as limited information about work history, income amounts, and benefits history, and “Medical Data,” such as the limited information about the type of condition that may be causing your disability and your history of doctor visits. Additionally, we may purchase and manage opt-in lists generated by third parties that DFO50 may use to supplement the PII you provide with additional PII gathered from public or third-party sources. You are under no obligation to provide PII, with the caveat that your refusal to do so may prevent you from using or DFO50 from offering certain of the services offered on the Website.
DFO50 does not request and asks that you do not provide any confidential, proprietary or sensitive PII (“Sensitive Information”), such as Social Security number, driver’s license number, passport number, credit card information, bank account or other financial information. If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our site in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the website’s Uniform Resource Locator (“URL“) that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol (“IP“) address. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.
2. Collection Methods and Use of Information
We do not collect any Personally Identifiable Information about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information to us when you (a) register for our services and register your e-mail address with us; (b) enter sweepstakes or contests sponsored by us or one of our partners; (c) sign up for special offers from selected third parties; (d) send e-mail messages, submit forms or transmit other information by telephone or letter; or (e) submit your credit card or other payment information when ordering and purchasing products and services on our site. We may also collect information from you at other points on our site that state that such information is being collected.
In addition, we may also collect, or our third party ad server and/or content server may collect, certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information. This information is ultimately stored in the form of, in some cases, specific URLs. We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our site and to gather demographic information. Our third party ad servers will also provide us with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell us how many ads were presented and clicked upon at our site.
Anonymous Information and Third Party Advertisers
We may use an outside ad serving company to display banner advertisements on our site. As part of their service, they will place a separate cookie on your computer. We will not provide any third-party ad server with any of your Personally Identifiable Information or information about your correspondence with us. We and our third party ad server will collect and use Anonymous Information about you, such as your IP address, browser type, the server your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with your server and whether you responded to a particular ad. Other advertisers may also place banner ads on our site in the same manner as above, but we will not disclose any Personally Identifiable Information to them.
4. Disclosure Practices
Release of Information
We do not sell, trade, or rent your Personally Identifiable Information to others. We do provide some of our services through contractual arrangements with affiliates, services providers, partners and other third parties. We and our service partners use your Personally Identifiable Information to operate our sites and to deliver their services. For example, we must release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for products and services purchased on this site; release your address information to the delivery service to deliver information via mail; and provide order information to third parties that help us provide customer service.
We will encourage our service partners to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by our service partners is governed by the privacy policies of those service partners, and is not subject to our control.
