Privacy Policy - Discovery Conference Centre

Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting the Discovery Conference Centre (“DCC”) Web site, and reviewing our privacy policy. The information we receive depends on what you do when you visit our site. The DCC Web site has general information available to all users as well as online reservation and payment services available to DCC clients.

The essence of our privacy policy is simple and clear: we will collect no personal information about you when you visit our Web site unless you voluntarily choose to provide that information to us by entering information by completing an online form, sending us an email, or scheduling a meeting at our facility.

Here is how we handle information about your visit to our Web site:

If you visit our site to browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information:

  • If you do nothing during your visit but browse through the Web site, read pages, or download information, we will gather and store certain information about your visit automatically. Your web browser software transmits most of this information to us. This information does not identify you personally.
  • We automatically collect and store only the following information about your visit:
    • The numeric IP address (an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web) from which you access the DCC Web site. Our software can then map these IP addresses into Internet domain names, for example, “xcompany.com” if you use a private Internet access account, or “yourschool.edu” if you connect from a university’s domain;
    • The type of browser and operating system used to access the DCC Web site;
    • The date and time you access the DCC Web site;
    • The pages you visit, including graphics loaded from each page and other documents you download, such as PDF (Portable Document Format) files and word processing documents; and
    • If you linked to the DCC Web site from another Web site, the address of that Web site. Like No. 2 above, your web browser software transmits this information to us.
  • We use this information to help us make our site more useful to visitors — to learn about the number of visitors to our site and the types of technology our visitors use.

Cookies

A “cookie” is a small text file that a Web site can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site or to make it possible for you to make online reservations on the DCC Web site. The cookie transmits this information back to the Web site’s computer which, generally speaking, is the only computer that can read it. Most consumers do not know that “cookies” are being placed on their computers when they visit Web sites. If you want to know when this happens, or to prevent it from happening, you can set your browser to warn you when a Web site attempts to place a “cookie” on your computer. Certain services, such as our online scheduling services, use cookies to enhance the user experience and avoid multiple login/password authentication.

If you choose to identify yourself by sending us an email or by using our online scheduling:

  • The DCC Web site will ask for your name, e-mail address, phone number and address in order for you to utilize our online scheduling system.
  • When you use our online scheduling system, and pay DCC by credit card, we ask for the cardholder’s name, address, account number, and card expiration date.
  • All of these activities are purely voluntary. You will always have the option to decide whether to perform the transaction and provide your information.
  • If you choose to provide us with personal information — as when you, send an e-mail to us, or complete our online scheduling form with your personal information and submit it to us through our Web site — we use that information to respond to your message and to help us get you the information you have requested.
  • DCC does not collect information for commercial marketing. We will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information to anyone.

DCC will send personally identifiable information about you to other companies, agencies, or people when:

  • We have your consent to share the information;
  • We are required to do so by law, subpoena, court order or legal process; or
  • We find that your actions on our Web sites violate the DCC Terms of Service or any of our usage guidelines for specific products or services.

Links to Other Sites

  • The DCC Web site contains links to other Web sites. Once you link to another Web site, you are subject to the privacy policy of the new Web site.

Security

  • We take very seriously the integrity of the information and systems that we maintain. As such, we have instituted security measures for all information systems under our control so that information will not be lost, misused or altered.
  • For site security purposes and to ensure that our Internet services remain available to all users, we may employ software programs to monitor traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage. In the event of authorized law enforcement investigations and pursuant to any required legal process, information from these sources may be used to help identify an individual.
  • In certain areas, as with credit card transactions, DCC uses industry-standard secure socket layer (SSL) encryption to protect data transmissions.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

DCC may revise this policy from time to time. If we make any substantial changes we will notify you by posting a prominent announcement on our pages.
