DMLcentral Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

1. Information Gathered by DMLcentral

For visitors to our website, we log standard technical information, such as the numerical Internet protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using; the browser software you use and your operating system; the date and time you accessed the site, and the Internet address of the website from which you followed a link to our site. The information is kept primarily to assist us in diagnosing technical problems and defending against attacks on the site.

In addition, DMLcentral collects and retains information you submit to us. It is up to you whether to submit information to us, and how much information to provide. We may ask for additional personal information when you provide feedback or comments, or otherwise communicate with us.

When you visit DMLcentral, we may also send one or more cookies – a small file containing a string of characters – to your computer or other device that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service.

2. Use of Information by DMLcentral

In general, DMLcentral uses the information provided by you to further its mission, including its goal of helping determine how digital technologies are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. We also look at technical information to diagnose problems with our server and to administer DMLcentral site.

3. Disclosure of Your Information

While DMLcentral endeavors to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including: (1) with your consent; or (2) when we have a good faith belief it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we are required by law to disclose the information that you have submitted, we will attempt to provide you with notice (unless we are prohibited) that a request for your information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address, or by postal mail if you have entered a postal address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

In addition, we may independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper.

4. Updating or Removing Your Information

If you have an account with DMLcentral, you may choose to correct, update, or delete the information you have submitted to us related to your account by sending a message to the adminsitrators via the Contact Page. Furthermore, if we inadvertently collect more personal information than intended, we endeavor to delete the extraneous information. However, please understand that deleted information may continue to persist on backup media.

5. Security

DMLcentral protects personal information by reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, or use.

6. Changes to Our Policies

DMLcentral’s Privacy Policy may change from time to time. However, any revised privacy policy will be consistent with our mission. If we make any substantive changes to our policies, we will post notice of changes on this page.
