What are Dagizmo's rules and expectations about member privacy and information?
Dagizmo is a great way for members to come together and build community. To make it work, we have some clear ground rules and expectations about member information and privacy:
- Don't share your neighbors' information or non-public content without their permission.
- Don't share your personal account with someone else.
- Don't gather information from Dagizmo, either manually or using automation (such as through scripts, robots, crawlers or spiders).
- We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties, and we won't share it with a third party unless we have your authorization. Similarly, it is never OK for you to give, sell, rent, or otherwise share your neighbors' information from Dagizmo to third parties.
Violating any of the above or other aspects of the Dagizmo Member Agreement may lead to a loss of account privileges, potentially including a permanent ban from Dagizmo.
- Collected Information: The information collected during your use of the Services includes the following:
- Submitted Information: As part of using the Services, you may submit certain information to us. For example, when you register for an account on the Services we will collect information from you, including Personal Information such as your first and last name and e-mail address. "Personal Information" means information such as a name or e-mail address that we can directly associate with a specific person or entity without additional information. To the extent you decline to share certain information with us, we may not be able to provide some or all of the features and functionalities found on the Services.
- Payment Information: When you purchase products or make payments through the Services, you may be asked for your credit card, billing address, or other payment information. We use third party payment service providers to process payments on our behalf, and as a result we do not actually receive your credit card number or other payment instrument information.
- Automatically Collected Information: When you use the Services, we gather certain non-personally identifiable information from you, and this information can be associated with your user account. This includes usage information, such as information on when, how often and for how long you use the Services, as well as server log data such as a computer's IP address, browser type or the webpage you were visiting before you came to the Services.
- Tracking and Cookies: The Services may use both web beacons and cookies to collect information. "Beacons" (also often referred to as "pixels") are tiny graphics on a web page designed to track when a page is viewed. "Cookies" are small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters that are downloaded by your web browser or mobile device when you visit a website. We may use both session cookies and persistent cookies when you access and use the Services. Cookies may be used, for example, to remember your user account information and your preferences, to customize the interface of the Services for you and to assist us in measuring and analyzing Service traffic. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Services. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your browser's documentation to learn the best way to modify your cookie settings. Like many websites, the Services does not currently respond to "do not track" browser headers as no industry-wide standard for handling them has been adopted. However, you can take steps to limit tracking by erasing cookies from your computer's hard drive and by setting your browser to block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is stored. You can configure your browser to reject cookies, but doing so will prevent you from logging into our website.
- Analytics: We use certain third party services to assist us in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting regarding the Services. These third parties may use web logs or web beacons, and they may set and access cookies on your computer or other device. In particular, we use Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed in this Policy.
