The Information Collected
DOC obtains and accumulates personal information, generally, by three different sources: 1) Voluntary personal information submitted by visitors of the Website when using or registering to use DOC's services, 2) Voluntary personal and contact information visitors supply when participating in DOC Website-hosted activities (promotions etc.), 3) anonymous, non-personal information on a technical and analytical basis to identify certain demographics and markets to develop or enhance service offerings.
DOC strives to provide visitors of the Website with a clear understanding of what information is being gathered for each purpose and will i) store such information as long as necessary to satisfy those purposes, and ii) ensure to the best of its ability that the information is accurate, complete and up-to-date as is necessary for the purposes to which it is being used (please inform DOC of any change to name, address or other information), and iii) not disclose your personal information to any third parties unless we obtain your prior consent or are legally compelled to do so. In addition, we will not contact you without your permission except as specified above or in connection with the registration process.
DOC utilizes a browser feature called a "cookie" that collects information anonymously and track user patterns on DOC websites. A cookie is a small file that is stored on the hard drive of your computer and is an industry standard that many major browsers are initially arranged to accept. DOC operates "expiration" cookies that can be programmed to expire at any time; thus, when you close your browser, the cookie will remain on your hard drive until its expiration.
Should you wish to be informed of, or to decline cookies from being stored on your hard drive, please refer to your Internet help directions.
DOC uses the Security Socket Layer for any sensitive information (i.e. credit card details) which is an industry standard security process for encrypting such sensitive information.
For any other information collected, DOC is also committed to protecting your privacy. Security procedures, such as passwords, restricted access and secured servers have been implemented to protect disclosure, copying, unauthorized access or modification to information stored.
DOC does not buy or sell consumer information. Any personal information collected will only be used as explained in this policy and as required by law.
Upon request, visitors of the Website shall be informed of the existence, use and disclosure of his or her personal information and shall be given access to that information except where DOC is permitted or required by law not to disclose personal information to the individual or employee. A visitor shall be able to challenge the accuracy and completeness of the information disclosed to him or her and have it amended as appropriate.
