For each visitor to our Web page, our Web server automatically recognizes only the internet address of the machine visiting, but not the visitor's e-mail address. We collect internet-address specific information on what pages consumers access or visit, information volunteered by the consumer (such as survey or poll responses, site registrations, etc.). Materials submitted to DWHoops by email or postal mail may be used for publication unless specified otherwise upon submission.
Names and email addresses are collected at site registration. Email addresses collected in this manner are never published. Users may specify their site preferences and these preferences are not individually shared, but aggregate site preferences will be calculated and potentially shared. For example we might report to a potential sponsor that X site members have subscribed to email alerts while Y site members have not. Site members above the standard membership level may opt-in to be recognized as named supporters of the site. We will seek written (email) permission before naming any member on the site.
The information we collect may be used to customize the content and/or layout of our page for each individual visitor. Such information will be disclosed if we are legally required to do so, at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation, to verify or enforce compliance with the policies governing our Website and applicable laws or to protect against misuse or unauthorized use of our Website, to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets or other corporate change respecting the Website.
If you are a current site member and do not want to receive e-mail from us in the future, you may unsubscribe from the announcement list that you joined by choice upon subscribing. We do not send site email to non-members, except in routine response to inquiries made of us.
If you supply us with your postal address on-line you will only receive the information for which you provided us your address.
Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers on-line will only receive telephone contact from us with information regarding orders they have placed on-line.
