DCG Software Value
info@softwarevalue.com

This statement sets forth the DCG Software Value (DCG) statement for this website and describes the practices that DCG will follow with respect to the privacy of users of this site. From time to time, we may change this Privacy Statement. For example, as we update and improve our service, new features may require modifications to the Privacy Statement. Accordingly, please check back periodically.

What is personally identifiable demographic information?

“Personally identifiable demographic information” is information about you, such as name, address, phone, email address, interests and so on. Through this website we do not collect any financial or government-related identification numbers, such as credit card numbers or social security numbers.

How is information collected, used and disclosed?

We do not collect personal information – including your email address – unless we first ask you for it. Whether you provide any information is entirely up to you.

If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable demographic information as described in this Privacy Statement. In some circumstances, DCG may share information you voluntarily provide us with trustworthy business partners. We do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone. Also, DCG may provide aggregate statistics about visitors to our sites, such as volume, traffic patterns, and related site information, to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information. DCG may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the website Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d) act to protect the interests of our users or others.

What are cookies and how are they used?

This DCG site, like many other websites, may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a website operator determine that a particular user has visited the site previously, thus saving and remembering any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that websites can send to your browser. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or obtain your email address. If you are simply browsing a DCG informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has visited the site before.

We may also make use of memory-based cookies in support of authenticating the user of certain DCG web applications. Similarly, if you are a registered user of a site providing service to DCG clients (and have a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information based on preferences you have indicated while using the site. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize DCG services, which require registration if you reject cookies.

Generally cookies are harmless, but some people prefer to block them or to delete previously set cookies. A good resource for handling this is About Cookies. If you have any additional questions about how cookies are used on our website, please contact us for more information.

What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable demographic information as described in this Privacy Statement.

If you have voluntarily agreed to subscribe to DCG communications, such as newsletters or notices, we will send you this information as it is made available and it may include information regarding DCG products and services. If you do not want to receive the DCG communications, you should not subscribe to the service or check the appropriate box on the subscription form.

How can you correct, access, and update your information?

You may view and edit your personally identifiable information at any time by contacting us using the link provided on the website and in the regular DCG communications.

How do we protect your information?

We exercise great care to protect your personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable demographic information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via email. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers.

Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number and are committed to our privacy policies.

We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

How can you help protect your information?

If you are using a DCG website for which you registered and chose a password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. Also, remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.

Other sites

DCG sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
