DIGITAL FILE’s Privacy of Information Policy

(Last updated: 2013/01/30)

The following information explains our policy regarding any personal information you may supply to us when visiting our website.

DIGITAL FILE will not share email addresses with anyone outside DIGITAL FILE nor disclose user information to any third party, except as described below.

DIGITAL FILE' goal is to protect online customer information in the same manner that we protect our customer information collected through telephone, mail or fax sales.

Please read the entire Privacy Policy before providing any personally identifiable information to us.

What information does DIGITAL FILE capture on visitors to DIGITAL FILE’s website?

DIGITAL FILE may collect three types of information from users of Sites: “personally identifiable information”; “device information” about the device you are using to access our site; and “aggregate information.”

Personally identifiable information is any piece of information which can potentially be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate a user of the Sites (such as name, email address, postal address, telephone number).

Device information is information about the device and its attributes (such as information about how your browser is configured, whether your device has enabled cookies, its Flash settings, the device’s identification number and other characteristics about the device); it also may be personally identifiable information in cases where it is associated with the name or other identifier for a Site user. We use device information for purposes such as enhancing the user experience.

Aggregate information is non-personally identifiable/anonymous information about users of the Sites (such as frequency of visits to Sites, Site pages most frequently accessed browser type). Aggregate information also may include pages visited along with any navigation and in-page interactions used during each visit. In-page interactions monitored include: clicks and selections, mouse movement, page scrolling, and form fields focused on (specific keystrokes entered into each field are not collected). Aggregate information is used in a collective manner and no single person can be identified by that compiled information.

We also use Google Analytics for aggregation and analysis of session information. If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics, Google has developed a tool that works with major internet browsers to permit you to opt-out. For more information and install their opt-out tool please visit: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. If you opt-out of Google Analytics, we still may collect some device and aggregate information ourselves through log files as discussed below or in connection with our forms.

Our web server automatically collects and stores the following information:

  • Your hostname and/or IP address
  • The domain from which you access our site
  • The country from which you access our site
  • The day, month and year you access our site
  • Certain interactions visitors perform with DIGITAL FILE’s site web-pages

On the Sites, users may order products or services, and register to receive materials. Personally identifiable information collected on the Sites includes community forum content, diaries, profiles, photographs, name, unique identifiers (e.g., passwords), contact and billing information (e.g., email address, postal address, telephone, fax), and transaction information.

In order to tailor DIGITAL FILE's subsequent communications to users and continuously improve the Sites’ products and services, DIGITAL FILE may also ask users to provide information regarding their interests, demographics, experience with its products, and detailed contact preferences.

Do you keep the credit card information I provide while purchasing on line?

We do not have access to your credit card details when you purchase on-line.

DIGITAL FILE does not receive and is not involved in getting your credit card details. This is also the case if you purchase via PayPal.

How does DIGITAL FILE use the information I provide while getting product support?

We use information gathered from support requests to generally improve our products and services. No specific customer information is stored. We will not transfer information we received during the support process to other customers, any third party or even employees within DIGITAL FILE that do not require the information in order to assist in the support process of that specific client.

Cookies

DIGITAL FILE uses cookies on the Sites. A “browser” or “HTTP” cookie is a unique text file that may be used for data analysis, and enables a web site to tailor information presented to a user based on a user’s browsing program.

DIGITAL FILE may use browser cookies to personalize a user’s pages at a Site or Sites, to remember a user when the user registers for products or services, for fraud prevention, or to track visits to a Site or across our Sites. If a user does not want

DIGITAL FILE or its partners to deploy browser cookies in the user’s browser when the user visits the Sites, the user may set the browser to reject cookies or to notify the user when a web site tries to place cookies in the browser program. Rejecting cookies may affect a user’s ability to use some of the products, features, functions, or services on our Sites.

Our website also may use local shared objects, also known as “Flash cookies” to store your preferences or display content based upon what you view on our website to personalize your visit. Flash cookies are different from “browser” cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove Flash cookies.

The ads appearing on the Sites may be delivered to visitors by third parties, such as Google. The third party advertising technology that DIGITAL FILE uses on the Sites uses information derived from a user’s visits to the Sites to target advertising within the Sites. In addition, DIGITAL FILE’s advertisers may use other third party advertising technology to target advertising on the Sites. In the course of serving advertisements to the Sites, our partners may place or recognize a unique cookie on a user’s browser. Information about users’ visits to the Sites, such as the number of times users have viewed an ad (but not users’ names, addresses, or other personally identifiable information), are used to serve ads to visitors. The use of cookies enables our partners to serve ads to users based on such user’s visit to Media’s sites and other sites on the Internet. As with other cookies, and consistent with DIGITAL FILE’s policy on cookies stated above, the user may block or delete such cookies from the user’s drive or memory. For more information about Google, Google’s use of cookies, and how to “opt out” of Google’s email/information lists, please click here:http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. As noted in the Web Beacon discussion above, users also can opt-out of receiving these types of targeted network advertisements from many advertising networks by visiting the National Advertising Initiative website identified above.
