Dot Data Systems Inc and The DOT Directory (“DOT”) Privacy Statement
Last updated on May 30, 2015
DOT takes your electronic privacy seriously. We do not share Personally Identifiable Information with anyone unless we tell you otherwise when we collect the information.
Types of Information
There are two kinds of information Web sites can obtain about you:
Aggregate Information: Aggregate Information is anonymous data that Web sites use to diagnose problems on the sites’ servers, administer the sites, and to help improve the quality of the Web pages. It may be your domain name (i.e. “ABC.com”) or your IP address.
Personally Identifiable Information: Personally Identifiable Information is any information that personally identifies you. It can be your first and last name, your email address, your home address, or your telephone number. Sometimes this personal information is needed when you order products online, sign up with an Internet Service Provider (ISP) or subscribe to an email newsletter. Other times, Web sites collect this information to help target advertising and marketing.
We at The DOT Directory collect certain Aggregate Information – such as your IP address (a number that’s automatically assigned to your computer whenever you’re surfing the Web), browser type (e.g., Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer), and domain (e.g., “ABC.com”). We do this in the background so it does not interrupt your surfing speed. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer our site, and to gather broad demographic information. None of this information is connected with Personally Identifiable Information. So, when you enter our site, you are anonymous and will remain that way unless you choose otherwise.
Sometimes we post optional surveys in which we ask for Personally Identifiable Information. The choice is yours – you do not have to answer surveys. If you choose to answer the survey, we will always tell you on the survey form how we will use the Personally Identifiable Information.

The Bottom Line
The information we collect about companies and individuals provided in our directory and through our website are collected from public sources and/or provided directly by the company or individual.
Sometimes we want personal information from you so that we, our partners and our advertisers can send you some material we think might be of interest to you. We promise never to be sneaky about it getting this information from you. We always tell you up front what we’re going to do with the answers, and we always give you a chance to say “no thanks.”
