Our Commitment to Privacy

DAI knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate you trusting that we will do so carefully and sensibly. To better protect your privacy, we provide this Privacy Policy explaining our practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used by DAI. The information below explains our policy regarding your privacy, both online and offline. By visiting www.daintl.org or sharing personal information with DAI you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

Our www.daintl.org website is maintained by the DAI International Service Center, 13710 Struthers Rd. Suite 120, Colorado Springs, CO 80921, U.S. telephone (719) 598-7970.

Personally Identifiable Information Collected By DAI

When you visit our website or make a donation online or offline, you may provide us with personal information (such as name, address, email address, telephone numbers and/or credit/debit card information) that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis for various purposes. These purposes include registering to receive email newsletters or other materials, requesting further information from us about programs and services, donating to us, submitting a form on our website, or simply asking a question. We receive and store any information you enter on our website, or give us in any other way, whether it is online or offline. We ask for personal information so that we can fulfill your request and return your message. This information is retained and used in accordance with existing laws, rules, regulations, and other policies. DAI does not collect personal information from you unless you provide it to us. If you choose not to provide any of that information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or complete your order, but you will still be free to browse the other sections of the websites owned and administered by DAI. This means that you can visit our site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself.

The Way We Use Information

When you supply information about yourself for a specific purpose, we use the information for only that purpose (such as to provide the information you have requested). For example, you may be asked to give us individual information to receive information, to make a donation, or to apply for a job.

You can register with our website if you would like to receive updates. Information you submit on our website or over the phone will not be used for this purpose unless a registration form is filled out.

We use return email addresses to answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

DAI does not sell, rent, give-away or share its email addresses or other personal contact information with outside sources. DAI also does not send mailings on behalf of other organizations.

Our Commitment to Data Security

Personally identifiable information is stored on a third-party server and is not publicly accessible. Further, personally identifiable information is only accessed by DAI personnel on a “need to know” basis. To prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. Additionally, sensitive data such as credit card numbers are encrypted using SSL and other industry standard measures, to provide an additional level of security.

Choice/Opt-Out

If you have registered to receive communications from us and later change your mind, you may contact us to have your name and contact information removed from our distribution lists. You
can send an email to: info@daintl.org.

Anonymous Information Collected by DAI

Anonymous information is collected for every donor and visitor to this site. This includes pages viewed, date and time, and browser type. IP numbers are not stored, but are temporarily used to determine domain type and in some cases, geographic region. We do not make any association between this information and a donor or visitor’s identity.

Automatic Information

When you visit our website, our servers make a log of basic information corresponding to the sites and pages you have visited. This information is stored primarily to track the effectiveness of our website and individual sections and pages within them.

How the DAI  Website Uses Cookies

As with most other Internet sites, our web servers utilize “cookies” to track a user’s activity within our site as well as record the IP address of each visitor to this site. A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your computer. A cookie contains a unique identifying feature that allows our computer to recognize you when you return to the DAI site. The recorded IP address tells us which domain you visited from (for instance, yahoo.com), but not your email address or other private and personal information. We use the information we record to help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer this website more effectively, and to gather broad demographic information about what countries and domains our visitors come from and their behavior on our site.

DAI uses Google Analytics to collect information about the use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than your name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google. Google’s ability to use and share information collected by Google Analytics about your visits to this site is restricted by the Google Analytics Terms of Use and the Google Privacy Policy. You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to this site by disabling cookies.
How We Share Your Information

We may share your information with our service providers, partners, and other third parties as described below.

Third-Party Service Providers

We have third-party service providers that perform functions on our behalf, including, but not limited to: hosting, technical integration, marketing and analytics.

These entities may have access to your information if needed to perform their services or functions. If such access is required, the third parties will be contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of your personal information. The service providers are restricted from using, selling, or distributing this information in any way other than to provide the requested services to DAI.

Law Enforcement, Legal Process, and Emergency Situations

We may also use or disclose PII if required to do so by law or on the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal requirements; (b) protect and defend our rights or property, or our users, or (c) act to protect the personal safety of us, our supporters or the public.
