At Digital Training Solutions Ltd we have a few fundamental principles that we follow:
The Site may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by us. The policies and procedures described here do not apply to web sites or other services that DTS does not operate or control. Links from our Site do not imply that we endorse or have reviewed those websites or other services. We suggest contacting those services directly for information on their privacy policies.
Like most website operators, DTS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. DTS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DTS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, DTS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
DTS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our blogs. DTS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that, where applicable, blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Certain visitors to DTS’s websites choose to interact with DTS in ways that require DTS to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DTS gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who comment on our blog to provide a username and email address. Those who wish to receive updates via email, we collect their emails. In each case, DTS collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DTS. DTS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
DTS may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, DTS may monitor the most popular pages on the site or use spam screened by our servers to help identify spam. DTS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DTS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
DTS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on DTS’s behalf or to provide services available at DTS’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country; by using DTS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
DTS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, DTS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when DTS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DTS, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a DTS website and have supplied your email address, DTS may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with DTS and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DTS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorised access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If you are the resident of a country in the EEA, you may have additional privacy rights available to you under applicable laws. We will process your requests in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
If DTS, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that DTS goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of DTS may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
We have appointed a Data Protection Officer to oversee all aspects of our privacy and data security policies. If you would like to contact our Data Protection Officer, please send an email to DPO@dtslimited.net.
