Your privacy is very important to us. We want to make your experience on the Internet as enjoyable
and rewarding as possible, and we want you to use the Internet's vast array of information,
tools, and opportunities with complete confidence.
from all end users of DTBusiness services (the "Services")-those who access some of our Services
but do not have accounts ("Visitors") as well as those who pay a service fee to subscribe
to the Service ("Members")-what we do with the information we collect, and the choices
Visitors and Members have concerning the collection and use of such information.
Personal Information DTBusiness Collects and How It Is Used
DTBusiness collects information in different ways from Visitors and Members who access the
various parts of our Services and the network of Web sites accessible through our Service.
We use this information primarily to provide a customized experience as you use our Services and,
generally, do not share this information with third parties. However, we may disclose personal
information collected if we have received your permission beforehand or in very special circumstances,
such as when we believe that such disclosure is required by law or other special cases described below.
Members are asked to provide certain personal information when they sign up for our Services
including name, address, telephone number, billing information (such as a credit card number),
and other information. The personal information collected from Members during the registration
process is used to manage each Member's account (such as for billing purposes).
This information is not shared with third parties, unless specifically stated otherwise or
in special circumstances. However, in instances where DTBusiness and a partner jointly promote
the Services, DTBusiness may provide the partner certain limited personal information,
such as names and email addreses of persons who subscribed to the Services as a result
of the joint promotion for the sole purpose of allowing us and the partner to assess the
results of the promotion. In this instance, the limited personal information may not be
used by the partner for any other purpose. DTBusiness may also generate nonidentifying and aggregate
profiles from personal information Members provide during registration (such as the total number,
but not the names, of Members). As explained in more detail below, we may use this aggregated
and nonidentifying information to sell advertisements or promote Services.
DTBusiness Partners and Sponsors
Some DTBusiness products and services are offered to Visitors and Members in conjunction with a
non-affiliated partner. To provide Visitors and Members some of these products and services,
the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances,
you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to
use that particular service or feature. Additionally, many DTBusiness Members have cobranded Personal
Pages that are cosponsored by nonaffiliated partners. DTBusiness will share nonidentifying and aggregate
information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners in order
to administer the cobranded products or services offered.
At some Web sites, you can purchase products and services or register to receive materials,
such as a catalog or new product and service updates. In many cases, you may be asked to provide
contact information, such as your name, address, email address, phone number, and credit/debit card information.
If you complete an order for someone else, such as an online gift order sent directly to a recipient,
you may be asked to provide information about the recipient, such as the recipient's name, address, and phone number.
DTBusiness has no control over the third parties' use of any personal information you provide when placing such an order.
Please exercise care when doing so. If you order products directly from DTBusiness, such as through a "DTBusiness Store,"
we will use the personal information you provide only to process that order. We do not share this information
with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order.
DTBusiness may display online advertisements. We may also share aggregated and nonidentifying information about our
Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions
with these advertisers. Additionally, in some instances, we may use this aggregated and nonidentifying information
to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance, an advertiser tells us the audience they want to reach
(for example, customers in California) and provides us an advertisement tailored to the audience.
Based upon the aggregated and nonidentifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement
to the intended audience. DTBusiness does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
Responses to Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to DTBusiness, the return email address is used to answer the email inquiry
we receive. DTBusiness does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email
address with any third party.
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to
participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve
the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will
remain strictly confidential, even if the survey is conducted by a third party.
Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine
(or aggregate) it with the responses of other DTBusiness customers to create broader, generic responses
to the survey questions (such as gender, age, residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector,
or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our
services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated, non-personally identifying
information may be shared with third parties.
It is DTBusiness's policy not to use or share the personal information about Visitors of Members in ways
unrelated to the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt out or otherwise
prohibit such unrelated uses. However, DTBusiness may disclose personal information about Visitors or Members,
or information regarding your use of the Services or Web sites accessible through our Services,
for any reason if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is reasonable to do so, including:
to satisfy laws, such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental
or legal requests for such information; to disclose information that is necessary to identify,
contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Acceptable Use Policy
or other user policies; to operate the Services properly; or to protect DTBusiness and our Members.

Member, we will use a cookie to save your settings and to provide customizable and personalized services.

DTBusiness's Commitment to Data Security
Protecting your company's information is especially important to us. It is our policy to absolutely
secure and protect any information you enter during the course of business. We do this through
secure facilities, encryption, frequent backups and audits. In no case is this information
ever shared with any third party. If you require assistance in using our applications and
authorize DTBusiness support personnel to access your information, then such access will be
permitted but only for the express purpose of assisting you. In that event all information
viewed will be kept in strict confidence.
Services and Web sites we sponsor have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse,
and alteration of the information under our control. While we make every effort to ensure the
integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures
will prevent third-party "hackers" from illegally obtaining this information.
