What Personal Information We Collect
DDS will collect information that identifies you ("personal information") on-line only when you voluntarily provide it to us through our site. For example, when you choose to use our site shopping cart (if active), we will ask you to provide some personal information, such as your first and last name, mailing address, telephone number and/or e-mail address. We also may collect information that will allow you to establish a username and password.
How We Use Personal Information We Collect On-Line
-- We may use your personal information within DDS (1) to provide you with the services and products you request, (2) to assist with your questions about our services, billing, payment methods or use of our web site, (3) to process or collect payments made in connection with our services to you, and (4) provide you with test results.
-- We will not give, sell, rent, loan or otherwise disclose any personal information to any third party, unless (1) you have authorized us to do so, (2) we are legally required to do so, for example, in response to a subpoena, court order or other legal process, and/or (3) it is necessary to do so in order to protect and defend the rights or property of this web site. For example, with your consent, we may disclose your personal information to a third-party vendor that we engage to mail your test results to you. We contractually require such third-party vendors and contractors to comply with strict standards regarding security and confidentiality.
Please exercise caution when sending sensitive information by e-mail as e-mail is not a secure means of communication.
How We Protect Information Online
It is our policy to protect your account information against unauthorized access or release. We may use the services of a reputable security entity to verify and assist in our security measures. All the information you provide to us is encrypted. Also, some personal data, such as your password and test results, will be stored in encrypted form. As noted above, please exercise caution when sending sensitive information via e-mail, as e-mail messages do not have the security features that are built into our website.
In addition, we have procedures that limit DDS’ employees and contractors' access to personal information. Only those employees and contractors with a business reason to know have access to such information. We educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy through standard operating procedures, training, and internal policies on data privacy and corporate integrity. We take appropriate disciplinary measures to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.
