Safeguarding and Securing the Data
DSP is committed to securing your data and keeping it confidential. DSP has done all in its power to prevent data theft, unauthorized access, and disclosure by implementing the latest technologies and software, which help us safeguard all the information we collect online.
DSP uses “cookies” to help personalize each user’s online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to explain to the web server that you have returned to a specific page and consequently, save you time. For example, if you personalize DSP, or register with the DSP site or services, a cookie helps us recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, etc. When you return to the DSP, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the DSP features that you customized.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. These settings will typically be found in the "options" or "preferences" menu of your browser. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the DSP services or sites you visit.
DSP secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. DSP secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13, nor do we knowingly distribute such information. If we become aware that we have inadvertently received personally identifiable information from someone under the age of 13, we will delete such information from our records. If we change our practices in the future, we will obtain prior, verifiable parental consent before collecting any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13.
