Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of PII to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is DI Group’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

(a) No Tracking of Personal Information. DI Group’s Site(s) are not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Through website access logs DI Group does collect clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to the Site. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no PII and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.
(c) Use of Web Beacon Technologies. DI Group may also use web beacon or other technologies to better tailor the Site to provide better customer service. If these technologies are in use, when a visitor accesses these pages of the Site, a non-identifiable notice of that visit is generated which may be processed by DI Group or by its affiliates. Web beacons usually work in conjunction with cookies. If you do not want cookie information to be associated with your visits to these pages, you can set your browser to turn off cookies; however, web beacon and other technologies will still detect visits to these pages, but the notices they generate cannot be associated with other non-identifiable cookie information and are disregarded.
(d) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. DI Group may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the DI Group Site in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on the DI Group Site; system administration; user analysis; and business decision making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” DI Group or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
(e) Collection of Personal Information. DI Group collects PII when you enter Registration Data. DI Group may extract some PII in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help DI Group understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
6. Information Security
(a) Commitment to Online Security. DI Group employs physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. PII is accessible only by staff designated to access it. All DI Group agents and contractors with access to personal information on the DI Group Site are also bound to adhere to DI Group security standards.
(b) No Liability for Acts of Third Parties. DI Group will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of PII. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, DI Group shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of PII due to no fault of DI Group including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of DI Group staff and/or third parties.

You can submit an SAR by sending your request to email@example.com with the word “SAR” in the subject line, and we will ensure that we respond to your request within 30 days.
