DPG policy on collecting information on the Website

DPG’s policy on the use and disclosure of the information it collects on the Website
DPG uses the personal information you provide to us for internal purposes, such as filling and tracking your order, analyzing trends and collecting statistics. DPG may also compile and provide aggregate statistics about our visitors, customers, sales, traffic patterns and related site information to third parties, but these statistics will not include any personally identifying information.
We do not sell our purchaser, visitor, member or donor information. As is the common practice for nonprofits to attract new members, we may exchange the names and postal addresses we receive from members with other similar nonprofit organizations. If you do not want to have your information used in this way, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have provided us with your e-mail or postal mailing address, we may send you communications in order to inform you of events related to DPG that we believe may be of interest to you, or to alert you about DPG courses or other promotional events. If you do not want us to use your e-mail address to contact you for these purposes, you may send an e-mail message containing your name and postal address to email@example.com, or simply opt out of the e-mail communication that you receive.
DPG secure server software uses industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption technology. SSL encodes your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, as it travels over the Internet so that all transactions are secure. If you prefer, you may also place a membership, donation, or course payment by mail. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
