How We Protect Personal Information

While DCS is committed to protecting your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure, we cannot fully eliminate all security risks. DCS maintains safeguards to protect Personal Information, but no Internet system can be 100% secure.

We recommend you visit this page frequently to determine if any changes have occurred. You can determine when this Privacy Policy was last revised by referring to the “Last Modified” date at the top of this page. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will become effective upon posting on this Site. A User’s continued use of the Site or provision of personal information to use the Site following such changes indicates acceptance to the revised Privacy Policy.

Links to Other Websites

This Privacy Policy applies only to our Site. You should be aware that through links you may be directed to other websites including social media platforms that we do not control. DCS has no control over the privacy notices, policies or practices of these other websites, and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of websites to which we link, list, rank or identify by means of a search.

Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites and other online services with which a user communicates. There is no industry standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. DCS currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard is established and accepted, we will reassess how to respond to these signals.
