We may use the data we gather to uniquely identify you (personal information) or to do so in combination with other data. Examples of personal information include but are not limited to: your name, your mailing address, your email address, or your date of birth. Please be aware that even if you choose to use your browser’s private browsing settings, this policy can still be applicable.

We may gather other information while you use the site, which you willingly supply (such as comments that you post).

Your email address will be used by us for the purposes for which you gave it to us, as well as occasionally to send you information about the Site or other goods or services we think you might find interesting.
By selecting the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email, you can decide at any moment whether to continue receiving these emails. Your email address might also be sent to the technology company we work with in connection with the objectives for which you submitted it, and that company might occasionally get in touch with you if there are any problems with your account or security.
Data Collected Automatically Using Data Collection Technologies
On occasion, our site may link your personal data with your user profiles on other websites by means of third-party data processors (such the Facebook Pixel or the Pinterest Tag). Your personal information will not be accessible to us because we are the data controller, but in the future, we might use their respective advertising platforms to send you our content.
Additionally, we, third-party Data Processors, and advertisers may use automatic data collecting tools to gather the following information as you browse and interact with our Site:
- (a) Data pertaining to visits to our site, such as traffic trends, location data, and other data logs.
- (b) Information about your computer and internet connection, such as details about your IP address, operating system (OS), or browser.
- (c) Information on how you engage with emails, such as when you click on a link or when you open or forward emails.
- (d) Statistics about a population that could include personally identifiable information.
To further improve your user experience, we may combine automatically acquired data with personal information we collect in other ways (such as information gathered through an email opt-in).
We may employ a variety of technologies for this automatic data collecting, including but not limited to: (1) cookies, (2) flash cookies, (3) web beacons, and (4) Google Analytics.
A cookie is a piece of data that a web server sends to a web browser and the browser stores that contains an identifier (a string of letters and numbers). Every time the browser asks the server for a page, the identifier is then transmitted back to the server. “Session” cookies and “permanent” cookies are two different types of cookies: A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. A persistent cookie, on the other hand, will be saved by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date.
Cookies don’t normally contain information that directly identifies a user, but we may link the data stored in and retrieved via cookies to the personal information we have on file for you. The following are the reasons why we employ cookies:
- (a) authentication, which enables us to recognize you when you access and use our website;
- (b) status — this information enables us to ascertain if you are logged in to our website;
- (c) customization, which involves keeping track of your preferences and tailoring the website to suit you;
- (d) security – to safeguard user accounts, including preventing unauthorized use of login information, as well as to safeguard our website and services in general;
- (e) advertising: displaying ads that are pertinent to you; and
- (f) analysis – to assist us in evaluating how well our services and website are used and performing.
In addition, we employ Google Analytics to examine how users interact with our website. Cookies are used by Google Analytics to collect data about how people use websites. Reports about the usage of our website are made using the data collected in relation to it. You may access Google’s privacy statement at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
You may often erase cookies and refuse to accept them in most browsers. From browser to browser and version to version, there are different ways to accomplish this. Please refer to the instructions provided by your browser to learn how to delete or block cookies. Please be aware that disabling cookies could make it harder for many websites, including our site, to work properly. You might no longer have access to some Site features.
You might not be able to utilize the website’s services and content to their full potential without cookies. Please be aware that disallowing cookies will not prevent you from seeing advertisements when you visit our website. You will still view non-personalized adverts on the Website even if you choose to opt out.

How Your Information Is Secured by Us
We have put in place safeguards to protect your private data from theft or unauthorized access. All of the private data you give us is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology and stored on secure servers protected by firewalls. This encryption technology’s goal is to maintain the privacy of any information transmitted back and forth between a web server and a user.
Unfortunately, internet-based data transfer is not always totally secure. Although we take precautions to safeguard your personal information, we cannot ensure its security when transmitted through the Site. You do it at your own risk if you send any personal information or anything else. Any privacy settings or security features of the Site that are abused are not our responsibility.

When We Disclose Your Data
For additional functionality that lets you sign up for our site or otherwise improves it, we may utilize third parties (WordPress plugins). In this case, the third party will also have access to your information. We have no control over how other parties may use your data, and we disclaim responsibility for their privacy practices or those of other websites or third parties.
For instance, when you use the Site, we collaborate with third-party social media tools to give you their social networking services. These social networking services may be able to gather information about you if you use them to share our content with your friends and family through the Site. In line with their own privacy policies, these third-party social networking services may also inform your friends about your use of the Site.
We do not support the content or methods of such third parties by linking to their websites or using their services. We advise you to read the privacy policies linked to each website you visit and to be cautious whenever you access such third-party connections. Contact the third party directly if you have any inquiries about an advertisement or any other tailored content.
Other than as required by law, we do not disclose any personally identifying information about you to other parties.

To better safeguard users when they explore the web, several browsers provide a “Do Not Track” option. Regrettably, there isn’t a set standard for how websites ought to handle DNT. The Site does not respond to Do Not Track consumer browser settings or similar signals since there are no such standards in place.

In the event of a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation, asset sale, or company bankruptcy, Dollardosh has the right to transfer or assign the user information we have gathered.
