Information that we collect about you is processed in the United States. You understand that laws in the jurisdiction where information is processed may be less stringent than the laws in the country where you live. By using this site you acknowledge and accept that your information will be used in the United States of America and be subject to the privacy laws of the United States of America.
We will not sell your data. We will never sell any user information to any other groups or individuals.
We collect two types of user data: (1) technical data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the Detention Watch Network Site (“Information Collected via Technology”); and (2) data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under “Information Collected via Voluntary Submission”).
An “Internet protocol address” or “IP Address” is a number that is automatically assigned to Your computer when You use the Internet. In some cases Your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if You use a consumer internet access provider, Your IP Address probably varies from session to session. We, or our service providers, may track Your IP Address when You access the Site or Services.
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to Your computer’s hard drive while You are viewing a website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once You close Your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on Your computer until You delete them) to provide You with a more personal and interactive experience with the Site or Services. Persistent Cookies can be removed by following Your Internet browser help file directions. If You choose to disable Cookies, some areas of the Site or Services may not work properly.
“Web Beacons” (sometimes also known as “Web bugs” or clear GIFs) is a small, usually transparent image within a Web page. At the time Your computer downloads the image, the HTML code of that page is capable of passing along certain information. The types of information collected by a Web beacon may include the IP address of the computer retrieving the image, the browser type used to retrieve the image, the time when the image was retrieved or played, and the values contained within previously set Cookies. If You disable Cookies in your browser, Web Beacons will be unable to track Your specific use of the Site, but some areas of the Site or Services may not work properly.
We may collect and store Voluntary Submitted Data, including personal data, that you voluntarily provide, such as your name and postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and similar information, and transactional information, such as giving and action-taking history, when you participate in activities on the DWN Site.
Detention Watch Network may occasionally update this Statement. We will post any changes on this web page, so be sure to check back periodically.
