DMS has self-certified its adherence to the Safe Harbor principles on the Safe Harbor Web site.
The Information We Collect and How We Use It
Non-Personal and Aggregated Information Collected Automatically. When you visit our Site, we log general data, such as your domain name (e.g., aol.com), the name of the Web page from which you entered our Site, which pages you visit on our Site, and how much time you spend on each page. We use this information to continually monitor and improve our Site and for internal analysis. In particular, we use IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the Site, track user’s movement, and gather information for aggregate use. (IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.)
Personal Information That You Choose to Submit. As a visitor to our Site, you may choose to use the Site to send us personal information (e.g., your name, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address), for example, when you send a question via the Site, register for a special service, submit your resume, enter a contest or purchase a product or service through our Site. Anytime you submit personal information for a specific purpose using the Site, your information is used for that purpose only, unless you consent otherwise or as required by law. When you submit personal information to DMS Voice on this Site, you understand and agree that this information may be transferred across national boundaries and may be stored and processed in another country, which may not provide privacy protections similar to those your country provides.
We do not send unsolicited e-mail to you or other visitors to our Site. We use e-mail to respond to e-mail messages from you, to confirm product or service orders placed online and to engage in other communication that you have authorized or that we have determined necessary to more effectively service you and our customers.
In many cases, you choose the amount of information you supply (e.g., when sending us information through the Site, you may choose to include only an e-mail address – not a telephone number or mailing address – for replies). There may be instances where some of the information that we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. In such cases, if you do not provide mandatory personal information with respect to a particular activity, you will not be able to engage in that activity.
What About “Cookies”?
The term “cookie” refers to files that are transferred from a Web site to your computer’s hard drive. The purpose of cookies is to enable us to track your activities on our Site. Cookies help us remember who you are. They work in the same fashion as the clerk in a store you visit on a regular basis. The store clerk may not necessarily know your name, but he or she recognizes that you have been in the store before and may remember what you usually purchase while you are in the store. Cookies permit us to gain the same kind of information about you and enable us to provide you with more efficient and personalized service. For example, for sites that require registration, a cookie file can be stored on your computer enabling you to skip the registration process on subsequent visits. Cookies are also frequently used to track the progression of a customer engaged in an online purchase to ensure that the transactional information remains intact.
Some (usually newer) versions of Web browsers allow you to decide whether or not to accept cookie files and some programs notify you when a Web site is about to deposit a cookie file on your hard drive. If you decide not to accept cookies, you may not be able to successfully navigate some portions of a Web site.
You can check your hard drive for cookie files. For PC’s, look for “cookies.txt” files on your hard drive. On a Macintosh, look for “magic cookies.” There are software programs available (“cookie cutters” and “anonymizers”) that allow you to selectively edit cookie files.
Who We Share Our Information With
We may share non-personal, aggregated information with our customers, partners, and advertisers. Aggregated information is not linked to any personal information that can identify an individual person.
DMS Voice works with third parties to research certain usage and activities on our Web site on our behalf. Some third parties utilize Web beacons to conduct this research. Information collected through Web beacons helps us to identify user demographics and usage patterns to improve our measurements, reporting, and the effectiveness of our marketing efforts. Information recorded through Web beacons is aggregated and then shared with Level 3. No personally identifiable information about you is shared by these third parties with DMS Voice as a result of this research. If you prefer not to participate in the Web beacon research on the DMS Voice Web site, please visit each of the third party’s Web site individually in order to opt out.
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect through the Site. However, please be advised that DMS Voice cannot guarantee and has no control over the public or third party network through which you send your personal information to Level 3’s Site.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of children is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain information at our Site from those we actually know are under 13, and no part of our Site is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Linked Internet Web Sites
This Site provides hyperlinks, which are highlighted words or pictures within a hypertext document that, when clicked, take you to another place within the document, to another document altogether, or to other Web sites not controlled by Level 3. These hyper-linked Web sites may contain privacy provisions that are different from those provided herein. DMS Voice is not responsible for the collection, use or disclosure of information collected through these Web sites, and DMS Voice expressly disclaims any and all liability related to such collection, use, or disclosure.
How to Correct, Amend, or Delete Your Information
We honor requests from you to correct, amend, or delete your account information (for example, your name, address, or billing information). You may verify that appropriate corrections have been made. To correct, amend or delete account information, contact the Webmaster. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access or making corrections.
If you become aware of any violation by any person, including Users that have accessed the Service through your account, please notify us.
