We take your privacy seriously. This privacy statement discloses the types of information we gather, how we use it, and how to correct or change it.
Information We Collect
We collect the following information automatically when you visit our website or interact with emails:
We use technologies, including electronic images known as Web bugs--sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or beacons--that allow us to track general user traffic patterns. Unless you have registered for one of our products or services, the information we gather through the use of tracking technologies cannot be matched with any personally identifiable information about you unless you have specifically given us personally identifiable information, in which case we use the information to enhance your services,
Information You Submit Yourself
In addition to automatically collected information, we also collect information you submit through account creation, when you subscribe to our print publication or our e-mail newsletter, article submissions, resumes to apply for employment, or when you register to use services.
This personally identifiable information is limited to information on the print publication and/or e-mail newsletter subscription form, including:
Most of our pages and information can be visited without submitting any information about yourself. To provide services you request, however, we do sometimes need information. Providing your personal information is voluntary. If you do not wish to provide any of the user data requested by our registration process do not register with us. You can still view our content and use services offered by our site without registering.
We offer a twice-monthly e-newsletter called DDNews Online. This subscription-based newsletter is an opt-in service. When you subscribe to our publication you can opt-out of receiving electronic newsletters from us or third-parties. You can also remove yourself from mailing lists at any time through the subscription management page or by following the instructions at the end of the e-newsletter.

Personally identifiable information
We only make your personally identifiable information available to other companies or people if you request a product or service. We use third-party companies who work with us or on our behalf to provide opt-in e-mail announcements.
We aggregate personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for marketing, promotional, and other purposes.

We are always seeking to improve our network of websites and our business. In accomplishing this objective, we may buy or sell a company. If we sell our company we may transfer some or all of your information as a part of the sale in order that the service being provided to you may continue. You can contact us at any time to update your information or request to be removed.
