Commitment to Your Privacy
This site is owned and operated by de maximis Data Management Solutions, Inc. (ddms).
Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At ddms we want
to make your experience online satisfying and safe.
Because we gather certain types of information about our users, you should fully
understand our policy and the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use
of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather
and how we use it.
What information does ddms gather and track?
ddms gathers two types of information about users:
- Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are
voluntary submissions to provide contact and user information about yourself so
that other Project Portal team members may contact you.
- Information ddms gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly
by tallying page views throughout our sites. This information allows us to better
tailor our content to readers' needs and better understand the technical demographics
of our audience. Under no circumstances does ddms divulge any information about
an individual user to a third party.
ddms tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. ddms breaks down
overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME
type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained
in every user's browser).
ddms sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search
function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking
information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based
on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather
how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service
We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your
user data; instead your personal preference information that you provide is kept
in a database. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although
it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically
and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is
information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or
patterns (as described above). Our advertising system delivers a one-time cookie
to better track ad impressions and click rates.
to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with
each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site.
Use of Information
ddms uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience
in the Project Portal application, whether to provide interactive or personalized
elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests
of our users, and to optimize their usefulness as part of the project team.
ddms never shares user or contact data with any third parties, including advertisers,
sponsors or partners except to comply with applicable law or valid legal process
or to protect the personal safety of our users or the public.
ddms operates secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password
protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed
and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information
provided by our customers.
By using this site, you consent to the collection and use of this information by
page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it,
and under what circumstances we disclose it.
