Dawson|Wallace protects the privacy of its users and will not sell user personally identifiable information. Users who provide personally identifiable information (any information by which user may be identified, such as name, physical address, email address, and telephone number) while participating on Dawson|Wallace.org may, from time to time, receive communications from Dawson|Wallace and other aligned parties that Dawson|Wallace partners with for special events and activities.
Use of Personally Identifiable Information
We may request personally identifiable information from you in connection with your use of, or participation in, Dawson|Wallace.org. In these cases, we will collect personally identifiable information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us.
Examples of this personally identifiable information are:
- Postal Address
- Email Address
- Business or company name and address
- Phone Number
Dawson|Wallace is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. Dawson|Wallace will not sell this information to others, or share it in ways other than those outlined in this statement. Personal information provided by users will be used by Dawson|Wallace to perform the user's request, improve the site, and provide a more personalized experience for the user. Information that identifies a specific individual will be disclosed to provide services that the user has requested, or as required by legal requests as noted in the section "Information Sharing and Disclosure."
Personally identifiable information is used for specific purposes, such as:
- To respond to requests for information
- To maintain Membership status
- To process registrations for events or other activities
- To provide user information on events, products and services, or other news that we think might be of interest to the user
If you do provide us with personal information for any of these activities:
- We will use it to conduct the activity.
- We will use cookie technology (discussed in detail below) to enhance your experience of these activities, including to remember your preferences, customize the content that you see or authenticate your access to your personal information.
- In the event your personally identifiable information is requested as part of other programs and site interactivity, such personally identifiable information will be added to your registration information.
Your signing up on our Website, checking the opt-in box and providing your email address is providing your permission to send you information; however, you will always be provided the ability to "opt-out" (unsubscribe) at any time, even after you have provided personal information, by the procedures set forth on the emails we send to you or by contacting Dawson|Wallace directly (firstname.lastname@example.org or see contact information above). Please note that under certain circumstances, if you choose to opt-out, you may not be eligible for certain benefits for which a name, email address, telephone number, or other personally identifiable information is needed.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We also collect non-personally identifiable information through the use of "cookies" and IP address tracking ("Log Files").
A "cookie" is an element of data that a Website can send to your browser, which may then be stored on your system. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes the browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie from our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If users reject the cookie, they may still use our site. Cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users as they visit different sections of the site.
An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the Internet. When you request pages from our Website, our servers log your IP address. Dawson|Wallace employs IP addresses to analyze trends, administer the site, track user movements, and gather broad information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
The Dawson|Wallace servers automatically log certain information that Dawson|Wallace uses for statistical analysis of website traffic. The information is stored as log files on the Dawson|Wallace.org server. The log files are regularly collected and analyzed by software to produce visitor trend reports. We use such information to administer our Website and, in the aggregate, to understand which areas of our Website are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Website.
The information that is collected includes:
- User's IP address
- User's city
- User's state
- Length of time user stayed on Dawson|Wallace.org
- Where user came into the site
- Where user left the site
- Referring site that sent user to Dawson|Wallace.org
- Site the user went to when leaving Dawson|Wallace.org
- Type of browser user is using
- Search terms you used on Dawson|Wallace.org
This information is used to determine:
- Traffic patterns
- Average visitor session length
- Number of visitors to certain areas of the site
- Banner ad click-through
- Tracking results of promotional campaigns
- Other user trends
Server logs do not contain personally identifiable information on individual users, such as names, addresses, email address, occupation, etc. This type of data will only be collected in forms, product sales, or event registrations on Dawson|Wallace.org.
Non-personally identifiable information might include the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to our Website, such as the operating systems and the Internet service providers utilized, and other similar information.
We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, email addresses, personal navigational, or other personal information.
Dawson|Wallace makes every precaution to protect user information. Only personnel who require the information to perform a specific job are granted access to personally identifiable information. The servers used to store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. If you have any questions about the security at the Dawson|Wallace.org website, you may contact us at email@example.com
Dawson|Wallace uses online forms on Dawson|Wallace.org.org to collect specific information for project quotes and other data collection uses. In cases where private financial information is collected, such as credit card numbers, etc., all forms are secured through Secure Socket Layers (SSL) encryption, the most widely accepted and tested form of data encryption. Of course no transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure, therefore the user provides Dawson|Wallace with information at his or her own risk.
In addition to Secure Socket Layer encryption during transmission, Dawson|Wallace takes these additional precautions with user information:
All web servers are protected by state-of-the-art, managed firewalls. Credit card numbers are encrypted down to the database field level.
Dawson|Wallace cannot ensure that third-party websites linked from Dawson|Wallace.com will provide equivalent security. Users should check with the privacy policies of those websites before submitting any personally identifiable information.
Dawson|Wallace makes reasonable effort to ensure that all of the transactions that occur on its Website are secure. All credit card numbers submitted to our Website are encrypted with 128-bit Secure Socket Layer ("SSL") technology, which is the industry standard for information security. Any personal information that you submit as part of a financial transaction is also encrypted with SSL technology. Dawson|Wallace reveals only the last four digits of the user's credit card number when confirming an order. Of course, Dawson|Wallace.org transmits the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing. It is important for the user to protect against unauthorized access to his or her password and to his or her computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer, and do not send credit card numbers or other financial or proprietary information via email.
Your piece of mind and security is very important to us. If you do not feel comfortable submitting your personal information online, you can submit such information by calling us.
Security—Credit Card Processing
Dawson|Wallace uses an outside credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store, or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes. Dawson|Wallace partners with other parties to provide specific services such as a secured site for financial transactions. When the user signs up for these services, Dawson|Wallace will share names, or contact and other information, that is necessary for the third party to provide these services—with the permission of the user, which is implied by user's online submission of such information. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Dawson|Wallace may provide to third parties non-personal information that does not allow you to be identified or contacted and that is combined with the non-personal information of other users.
Privacy of Children
Dawson|Wallace's Website is a general audience Website and does not knowingly market to or collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 18 years old. We understand that young people need special safeguards and privacy protection. We realize that they may not understand all the provisions of our policy or be able to make thoughtful decisions about the choices that are made available to our adult users. We strongly urge all parents to participate in their children's exploration of the Internet and any online services, and to teach their children about protecting their personal information while online.
We may, at our discretion, require users under 18 to obtain the consent of a parent or guardian to view certain content, and we may limit access to certain content to users above a specified age. You agree to abide by any such restrictions, and not to help anyone avoid these restrictions.

If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an email request for this information at firstname.lastname@example.org. To help us address your request, please specify which information you wish to review.
Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is erroneous. To request such a correction, please send an email to email@example.com. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers, although we will always make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.
If at any time you would like to stop receiving information from Dawson|Wallace.org or opt-out of a particular feature, you can let us know by selecting the "unsubscribe" link on any emails we send you, which will unsubscribe you automatically, or by sending an email stating your preference to firstname.lastname@example.org. To help us address your request, please specify the feature from which you wish to opt out. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers, although we will always make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.
Transfer to the United States
If users are located outside of the United States, please note that any personally identifiable information that they provide will be transferred to the United States. By submitting personally identifying information to Dawson|Wallace, user consents to this transfer.

From time to time, Dawson|Wallace performs updates to its system. Dawson|Wallace will do its best to inform registered site users of such updates.
