Privacy Policy

The D Squared C (D2C) Privacy Policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine the highest-quality products and services with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our clients and partners.  The Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our site and our products and services.  This statement will be continuously assessed against new technologies, business practices and our customers' needs.

Information Collected by D2C
When you visit the D2C Web Site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Web site.

1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide
If you submit a request for more information from D2C, the information you submit will only be used by D2C.  Our lists are private and are not sold to any third parties.  D2C may choose to share information with strategic partners, as outlined below.

2. Web Site Use Information
Similar to other commercial web sites, the D2C site utilises Web server logs to collect information regarding how our Web Site is used.  Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web Site, and the Web Sites visited just prior to  and after our Web Site.  This information is collected on an aggregate basis.  None of this information is associated with you as an individual.

Utilisation of Information Provided
D2C uses personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, improving the content of our Web Site, providing customer service and making available other products and services to our customers and interested parties.  Occasionally, we may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web Site, new services and special offers.  The lists used to send you product and service offers are developed and managed under our traditional corporate standards designed to safeguard the security and privacy of our customers’ personal information.  As a customer, you will be given the opportunity, at least once annually, to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers.

Sharing Information with Strategic Partners
We may enter into strategic marketing alliances or partnerships with third parties who may be given access to personal information including your name, address, telephone number and email for the purpose of providing you information regarding products and services that we think will be of interest to you.  In connection with strategic marketing alliances or partnerships, we will retain all ownership rights to the information.

Notice of New Services and Changes
Occasionally, D2C may also use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Web site, new services and special offers we think you will find valuable.  As our client, you will be given the opportunity to notify us of your desire not to receive these offers by clicking on a response box when you receive such an offer or by sending us an email request at Barry.Lister466@mod.uk

Information Protection
Information Security:  We utilise encryption/security software to safeguard the confidentiality of personal information we collect from unauthorised access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration or destruction.

Evaluation of Information Protection Practices: Periodically, our operations and business practices are reviewed for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality and quality of our information.

Employee Access, Training and Expectations: Our corporate values, ethical standards, policies and practices are committed to the protection of customer information.  In general, our business practices limit employee access to confidential information, and limit the use and disclosure of such information to authorized persons, processes and transactions.

Information Disclosure to Outside Parties
We may provide aggregate information about our customers, sales, Web Site traffic patterns and related Web Site information to our affiliates or reputable third parties, but this information will not include personally identifying data, except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy.   D Squared C does not sell our customer lists to outside or third-parties.

Legal Disclosure of Information
We may disclose information when legally compelled to do so, in other words, when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires it or for the protection of our legal rights.

External Links
This Web Site may contain hyperlinks to Web Sites controlled by parties other than D2C.  D2C is not responsible for and does not endorse or accept any responsibility over the contents or use of these Web Sites.   We are not responsible for the practices employed by Web Sites linked to or from our Web Site nor the information or content contained therein.  Often links to other Web Sites are provided solely as pointers to information on topics that may be useful to the users of our Web Site.

Please remember when you use a link to go from the D2C Web Site to another web site; the D2C Privacy Policy is no longer in effect.  Your browsing and interaction on any other web site, including web sites which have a link on our Web Site, is subject to that web site’s own rules and policies.  Please review those rules and policies before proceeding.

By using the D2C Web Site you consent to our collection and use of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.  If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our Web site to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it.
