Effective date: 11/30/2022
DTIS has created and adopted this Privacy Statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy.
This Privacy Statement describes how DTIS, as a data controller, collects, uses, processes, and shares the personal information that we collect from you directly or via a third party, or that you provide to us through www.DTIS.com and www.daontis.com (collectively, the “Services”).
We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement carefully to understand our use of your Data in connection with our Services (defined below).
We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time. If we make any changes we will post those changes here and update the “Effective Date” at the top of this Privacy Statement. Each time you use the Services the current Privacy Statement will apply and you should review it each time you access or use the Services.
Generally speaking, “personal information” is any data that can be used to identify or contact you. However, while this Privacy Statement broadly addresses all types of personal information that we may collect, some of the data we describe below may not be considered personal information according to the data protection laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside. Therefore, you should understand that certain parts of this Privacy Statement will not apply to you depending on the laws of the jurisdiction in which you reside.
This Privacy Statement applies to the processing of personal information collected by DTIS when you:
· Visit our website or other online services;
· Visit our branded social media pages;
· Visit our offices;
· Receive communication from us or otherwise communicate with us via email, phone calls or text ;
· Register for, attend or take part in one of our events or webinars; or
· Act or work as a service provider or supplier to us to the extent DTIS acts as a data controller of your personal information (collectively the “Services”)
Any additional information you provide to us is voluntary. Please be aware that you can choose whether to provide us with the types of information described below.
The personal information we collect directly from you includes identifiers, professional or employment-related information, commercial information and internet activity information, among others. We collect such information in the following situations:
Information you provide to us when accessing, visiting or using the Services. When you visit our website or our offices, engage with us as a vendor or customer, or otherwise access or use the Services, we collect information you provide to us as a controller, including, but not limited to:
In the event you choose not to provide us with the minimum amount of data necessary we may not be able to complete your request and you may be denied access to our services or officers.
We may also collect information about you from other sources from publicly available information. We may combine this information with personal information provided by you. This helps us update, expand, and analyze our records, identify new customers, and create more tailored advertising to provide services that may be of interest to you. The personal information we collect from other sources may include identifiers, professional or employment-related information, education information and commercial information we collect such personal information from the following sources:
· Third party providers of business contact information, including mailing addresses, job titles, email addresses, phone numbers, intent data (or user behavior data), IP addresses, social media profiles, LinkedIn URLs, and custom profiles, for purposes of targeted advertising, delivering relevant email content, event promotion, determining eligibility and verifying contact information; and
· Another individual at your organization who may provide us with your personal information, which may include personal information to the extent you consent to providing it and sharing it, for the purposes of obtaining services and pertaining to our vendors.
Information about your use of the Services. We collect information about you passively when you visit the Services. We will combine this information with information you give to us and information we collect about you. Examples of the types of information we collect include, but are not limited to:
These types of passive collection may include tracking of a device across time and third-party services. Some browsers have so-called “do not track” signals, but different browsers have different default settings and there is not an industry consensus as to what these mean. Accordingly, we do not look for or address these signals.
Generally, we collect your personal information for the purposes of providing you with and improving upon the Services and our legitimate business interests, as set out below. If we identify any new purposes outside of the stated purposes listed below, we will update this Privacy Statement or provide you with notification as required by applicable law.
We collect and process your personal information (including, where legally permissible, special categories of personal information) for the following purposes. Where required by law, we obtain your consent to use and process your personal information for the below purposes. Otherwise, we rely on another authorized legal basis (including but not limited to the (a) consent (b) performance of a contract or (c) complying with a legal obligation or (d) legitimate interest) to collect and process your personal information, as further detailed below.
We will share your personal information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Statement.
· Cookies. Please see below
We may also share anonymous or de-identified usage data the purpose of helping DTIS in such analysis and improvements to show trends about the general use of our services.
COOKIES. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a computer or device when you visit the Services. If you reject our cookies and/or similar tracking technologies, you may still use the Services, but your ability to use some or all of the Services, such as contests or surveys, will be limited. We use both session ID cookies and persistent cookies. A “session ID” cookie expires when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). We use session cookies to make it easier for you to navigate the Services. A “persistent” cookie remains on your hard drive which means that when you end your session and return to the same web Services later, the cookie information is still available. We may set a persistent cookie to store your passwords so you don’t have to enter it more than once. Persistent cookies may also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on the Services. We may use the following types of cookies:
· Targeting/Advertising Cookies. These cookies are used to provide advertisements that are more appealing to you and your interests, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. For example, a targeting/advertising cookie can remember that you have visited the Services, and it may share this information with other organisations, such as advertisers. This means that after you have visited the Services, you may see advertisements about our products and services elsewhere on the Internet.
WEB BEACONS / GIFS. Web beacons, or “clear gifs,” are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive or device, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We and our third-party service providers may employ web beacons for the reasons stated above (under “Cookies”), but primarily to help us better manage content on the Services by informing us which content is effective.
Below we describe how you can manage first-party or third-party cookies.
Our Cookies (or, “First-Party Cookies”). You can use the browser with which you are viewing the Services to enable, disable, or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “Help”, “Tools” or “Edit” settings). Please be advised that if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access parts of the Services or the Services may not work properly. You can find more information about how to change your browser cookie settings at http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
Third-Party Cookies. For more information about third-party advertising networks and similar entities that use these technologies, please see http://www.aboutads.info/consumers, and to opt-out of such ad networks’ and services’ advertising practices, go to http://www.aboutads.info/choices. Once you click the link, you may choose to opt-out of such advertising from all participating advertising entities or only receive advertising provided by specific advertising entities. We are not responsible for the completeness or accuracy of these third party notices or the effectiveness of their opt-outs or other features or functionality.
We will retain your personal information only for as long as necessary for the purposes of providing access to the Services and related services to you, to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
The Services have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the personal information under our control. DTIS will endeavour to use appropriate security measures including firewalls and monitoring.
However, no data transmission over the Internet or storage of data can be guaranteed as 100% secure, thus we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any personal information you transmit to or store with us, and you transfer and store such data at your own risk. You are also responsible for the security of your personal information by taking precautionary measures, such as keeping any account password confidential and using secure wireless connections.
You may disable cookies through your browser settings, but DTIS does not change the way it responds to a “Do-Not-Track” signal.
If you wish to request access to, rectification, erasure or restriction of your personal information, or object to the processing of your personal information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to reasonable requests in accordance with relevant data protection laws.
You may have certain rights relating to your personal information, subject to local data protection laws. Depending on the applicable laws these rights may include the right to:
· Access your personal information held by us;
· Know more about how we process your personal information;
· Rectify inaccurate personal information and, taking into account the purpose of processing the personal information, ensure it is complete;
· Erase or delete your personal information;
· Restrict our processing of your personal information;
· Transfer your personal information to another controller, to the extent possible;
· Object to any processing of your personal information;
· Opt-out of certain disclosures of your personal information to third parties;
· Not be discriminated against for exercising your rights described above;
· Not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects ("Automated Decision-Making"); and
· Withdraw your consent at any time (to the extent we base processing on consent), without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on such consent before its withdrawal.
· Where we process your personal information for direct marketing purposes you can exercise your right to object at any time to such processing without having to provide any specific reason for such objection
· Please note that Automated Decision-Making currently does not take place on our Web Services or any of the processing included in this notice.
