The DBA may change this policy from time to time by updating this page. You should check this page from time to time to ensure that you are happy with any changes.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY
The DBA limits access to your personal information to our employees and service providers who we think necessitate the need of access to that information in order to provide service and products to carry out their job. We maintain safeguards that follow federal regulations that protect your personal information.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
The DBA does not share your personal information with anyone outside of our company that is not affiliated with us. We only share your information in order to provide products/services you have requested, if you have given us your permission to do so, or under these circumstances:
We may disclose your personal information to contractors or service providers that help us provide services to you or deliver products to you. For example, we will disclose your billing information to payment processors to process your order transaction, shipping address to shipping contractors to deliver a product to you, and, at times, your email address to email fulfillment contractors to send you emails from us.
We may disclose your personal information to contractors, service providers, or third-party marketers that help us provide services and deliver products or advertisements to you.
The DBA website involves procedures of physical, electronic and administrative nature to safeguard your confidentiality. These procedures include Safeguard Sockets Layer (SSL) for financial transactions. We use Safeguard Sockets Layer encryption to protect your online information. Your personal information and access to it is always restricted. Our staff who needs to access your information to perform their role or carry our services for you, are granted this access.
You can be assured that personal information collected through the Website is secure and is maintained in a manner consistent with industry standards. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, you acknowledge that (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet which are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with in transit by a third party. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this Website, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
The DBA actively collects information when you: join our newsletter, create an account, submit an application, visit the website or web pages of our partner / affiliates, or submit payment information. We may combine your information from the information available from other business partners or companies. In creating an account with the DBA, we require your name, email address, date of birth, gender, zip code, interests and occupation. After creating an account and signing in when you visit the site, you will not possess anonymity.
