The following sets forth our policy, effective as of August 13, 2023 regarding the privacy of those who visit the Donald Landwirth (DML) Web site.
The policies and practices described in this Policy are subject to change, and we recommend that you periodically return to our Web site to review our then-current Policy, although we will communicate any significant changes to you if required by applicable law. The policies and practices described in this Policy replace all previous notices or statements regarding this subject.
DML is committed to protecting your information and your privacy whether you are online or not. At DML, we value your relationship, and we work diligently every day to honor the trust you place in us.
Are you a visitor or a registered user?
DML provides information on its Web site designed to help you learn business best-practices, make decisions and choose the products and services that are right for you (for example, from our affiliate partners).
When you are just browsing this information, we do not collect, capture, or retain any of your personal information. (As explained below, we may use “Cookies” or gather data that is not personally identifiable to you to track Web site usage, such as number of hits, pages visited, and the length of user sessions in order to evaluate the usefulness of our sites). By offering you this level of privacy, we believe you will more likely stay longer and learn more about DML. This means you may be more likely to find the information, products and services that fulfill your needs and goals.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included.
When you enter your personal information on our contact form we do not save a copy of the submission in our system. Instead, an email containing your required and/or optional personal information and/or your comments is sent from the system to the DML system administrator’s email box. In other words, there is no sent mail folder or storage on the DML site. The system also uses an outside service to check for spam before sending the email to our system administrator.
The required information on the contact form is needed in order to respond to your submission.
We retain the email sent from the site only as long as is necessary to respond to your comment. If we determine that the comment is spam we may provide the information to agencies or companies who try to deter spam and then we delete the email.
To manage the cookies and similar technologies used (tracking pixels, web beacons, etc.) and related consents, we use the consent tool “Real Cookie Banner”. Details on how “Real Cookie Banner” works can be found at https://devowl.io/rcb/data-processing/.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data in this context are Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR and Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the management of the cookies and similar technologies used and the related consents.
The provision of personal data is neither contractually required nor necessary for the conclusion of a contract. You are not obliged to provide the personal data. If you do not provide the personal data, we will not be able to manage your consents.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, audio streams, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
We use third party analytics software to anonymously track behavior of visitors to our site. The information includes number of visitors, duration of visit, what pages the visitor entered, linked-to and ultimately exited from. The analytics also show geolocation of visitors as provided by the IP address of your browser, the type of browser you are using (i.e. Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari), whether or not the browser is on a mobile device or desktop. Our analytics software does not gather any personally identifiable information.
Who we share your data with
DML does not sell or share any personal information that you enter into a comment or contact form with any third party.
Links to non-DML sites
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
When you provide contact information on a contact form, DML will only use that information to contact you and, only if you request that we do so in your comment. We never sell or share your information with any third party.
How we protect your data
The personally identifiable information you provide to us online is protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL technology). SSL is the leading security protocol for data transfer on the Internet. This technology scrambles your account information as it moves between your PC’s browser and DML’s computer systems. When information is scrambled, or encrypted in this way, it becomes nearly impossible for anyone other than DML to read it. This secure session helps protect the safety and confidentiality of your information when you interact with us online.
As mentioned above, we do not store any contact form submissions on the DML system. Once you click submit, the contact form information is emailed to our system administrator and the data is no longer on our system.
What data breach procedures we have in place
We are committed to protecting the security and integrity of your personal information through procedures and technology designed for this purpose. For example:
We limit employee access to personal information submitted on the DML site to those who have a business reason to know this information. Employees are required to honor our code of conduct, which includes standards to protect customer confidentiality. They are subject to disciplinary action if they fail to do so.
We maintain policies and procedures covering the proper physical security of workplaces and records.
Our physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards meet or exceed federal standards regarding the protection of customer information.
We require independent contractors and outside companies who work with us to adhere to strict privacy standards through their contracts with us.
We use technological means (such as backup files, virus detection and eradication software, firewalls, and other computer software and hardware) to protect against unauthorized access or alterations to submitted data.
