For visitors to our website and registered users, we log standard technical information, such as your IP address. If you choose to register with us, DCatalog requires you to provide your name, email address, and each user has a user ID and password that they choose. To maintain privacy it is important not to share your password with anyone. Selecting a longer password with a mix of letters, numbers and symbols makes it more difficult for others to guess your password. It is also helpful to change passwords on a regular basis. In addition, DCatalog will require you to provide geographical information such as your physical address. In the future DCatalog may ask you to provide other demographic information, such as age, gender, interests or occupation, as well as credit card information for verification purposes.
The information we collect about you in the course of our relationship is used to provide the DCatalog service to you. For example, as we endeavor to protect your identity, we may use your demographic information to create a database of user profiles, select advertisements based on your information and for marketing analysis. In addition, we look at technical information to diagnose problems with our systems, to administer the DCatalog service, and to enhance the services we provide to you. We may use your information to track user-generated content and users to the extent necessary to comply as a service provider with the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. We will use your email address, without further consent, for administrative communications such as notifying you of major updates, for customer service purposes, to address copyright infringement or defamation issues, or to contact you regarding any content that you have posted to or downloaded from the DCatalog service.
DCatalog uses all of the information that we collect to understand the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the way the DCatalog service works and looks, and to create new features and functionality. DCatalog may use “automatically collected” information, “cookies”, and Flash objects to: (a) automatically update the DCatalog service; (b) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you access the DCatalog service; (c) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages accessed; and (d) track your entries, submissions, participation and status in any promotions or other activities, and usage of the DCatalog service.
You have the ability and control to remove or alter your account-specific information, including any user profile data that you provide to the DCatalog service at any time. Access and control over most user-provided personal information on the DCatalog service is readily available through the edit function on your profile. As a user of the DCatalog service, you may modify or remove any of your profile information at any time by logging into your account. Information will be updated promptly. If you wish to deactivate your DCatalog service account, you may do so. Removed information such as your user ID, geographical information connected to your user ID, and any documents that you have uploaded to the DCatalog service may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time, and thus may continue to be publicly available across features of the DCatalog service such as its search engine, but will not be generally accessible by DCatalog or users of the DCatalog service.
DCatalog will take appropriate security measures designed to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data. DCatalog processes personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with this Policy or any applicable service-specific privacy notice. DCatalog takes reasonable steps to ensure that the personal information we process is accurate, complete, and current, but we depend on our users to update or correct their personal information whenever necessary.
We endeavor to restrict access to personal information to DCatalog employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and are required to meet these obligations.
If DCatalog learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. DCatalog may post a notice on the DCatalog service if a security breach occurs. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. To receive a free written notice of a security breach you should notify us at [email protected]
