Privacy Policy

0 comments

The policy below is applicable to all diwyy.com sites and to www.diwyy.com in general.

Your privacy on the Internet is important to us. We have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. As part of the operations of diwyy.com, we gather certain types of information about diwyy.com users. This diwyy.com Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) explains the types of information we gather, what we do with it and how you may correct or change information that diwyy.com may collect.

Information Collected by diwyy.com
diwyy.com collects two types of information about users: personal information (such as name and e-mail address) and non-personal information (such as information about how many users log on to our sites on a daily basis).

Personal Information
Personal information is collected when users voluntarily register for membership services. Personal information includes e-mail addresses, user registration data, passwords, external homepages, gender, birth date, number of nieces and nephews and any other user data. We may also receive personal usage and demographic information from third-party partners, and we also collect e-mail addresses from users who send us support mail or request technical or other help. This information enables diwyy.com to improve its sites to make your online visits more productive and enjoyable.

Our site’s registration form requires users to provide a valid e-mail address and other information. We use customer e-mail addresses from the registration form to inform you of the status of your Member Details Page, comments to articles you are reading or have written, new articles by Members you are reading, new membership benefits and features, to let you know of urgent problems on our site, and to present opportunities that are appropriate to the interests of our community.

Non-personal Information
One method of collecting non-personal information about your activities online (such as the pages you access most frequently or the search terms you enter), and information volunteered by you (such as survey or registration information), is by tracking Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web. The computers that deliver the Web pages to you automatically identify your computer by its IP address. When you request a page from one of our sites, our servers log your IP address. diwyy.com sites record IP addresses for the purpose of system administration and to provide non-personal data to third parties. We also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. In addition, your IP address is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.

Sharing Data with Third Parties
diwyy.com shares non-personal information with third parties for advertising and promotional purposes. diwyy.com may also share personal information with consultants and affiliates for internal business purposes and may divulge personal information if such information is subpoenaed, or if diwyy.com believes that membership has been used to commit unlawful acts, or acts that may endanger the health or safety of another user or of the general public.

Use of Cookies
diwyy.com uses ‘cookies’ to record information. A cookie is a small data file that Web sites store on your hard drive when you visit them. Cookies allow us to measure activity on our sites and to improve your user experience by remembering your passwords and viewing preferences, and allowing you to visit various members-only parts of our sites without re-registering. Cookies allow us to determine which areas and features of our sites are most popular by measuring user activity. This information allows us to make improvements and updates to improve your diwyy.com experience. diwyy.com does not use cookies to retrieve any information from your computer.
