You do not have to identify yourself in any way to visit our open web sites or online services.
We do need your personal information to complete any transactions such as ordering, registering, providing download services, processing requests, delivering products and invoicing. All personal data is stored in a secure database which is only accessible to a select number of persons. This data includes your name, address, log-in information (user name and password) and, in some cases, your IP address.
This data will not be shared with any third party outside the DIN Group. Within the DIN Group, access to your information is limited to authorized personnel only, and only when necessary to fulfil specific transactions, such as orders.
We withhold the right to process or use this data when necessary to protect legitimate prevailing interests in the clarification of any legal misuse or violation of our terms and conditions of use, even beyond the provider/user relationship, and to forward it to law enforcement agencies or injured third parties where any actual misuse has been documented.
We will process or use your data for advertising purposes only with your consent. You can give this consent when registering by selecting the "yes" option next to "I wish to be kept up-to-date on new products and services" on the registration form. This consent can be withdrawn any time by sending an e-mail to email@example.com
Data which can not be revoked includes any information that, when deleted, would infringe upon any statutory or contractual retention periods, or data which is necessary for drawing up or modifying the contractual relationship, or which must be stored for invoicing purposes.
You may, at any time, request information on your personal data stored by us, either in writing or electronically. Please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

Rapidly changing internet applications may require us to modify our data protection information, and we will keep you informed of any changes.
