  • Non-Personal Information,” which means Information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify you. If Non-Personal Information is directly or indirectly associated with Personal Information, this Non-Personal Information is then treated as Personal Information.

The Information we may collect about you is as follows:

For example, if you access the Servicesthrough a third party platform or log-in, we may also collect your email address and other Information associated with that third party, and any Information you have made public in connection with that service or which the third party shares with partner services.See also Section 7 “THIRD PARTY WEBSITES AND LINKS” below.

This Information may include Personal Information you provide such as your name, email address, location and telephone number.
  • We collect Information through unique identifiers (such as your IP address).
  • We use “cookies” and other technologies to collect data that enable us to better understand and improve the usability, performance and effectiveness of our Services. Cookies are files sent to your browser and stored on your computer. We use cookies to gather general Information about your use of the Services, the files you have designated for backup, the configuration of your computer and your computer’s interaction with the Services, and store this Information in log files. We use this Information to understand traffic on and downloads from our Services, enabling us to improve the Services, provide the best online experience possible and improve our customer service. We use the following types of cookies on our site:
  • Strictly necessary cookies – These cookies are essential to provide you with the Services, including use of some features of the Services, such as access to secure areas, transactional pages and secure log-in accounts. Without these cookies certain of the features of the Services you have asked for would not be possible.
  • Performance cookies – These cookies collect Information about how you use the Services and are used to improve how the Services work. These cookies allow us to:
    • Better understand visitors to our Services so that we can improve how we present our content;
    • Test different design ideas for particular pages, such as our homepage;
    • Collect information about visitors to our Services such as where they are located and what browsers they are using;
    • Determine the number of unique users of the Services;
    • Improve the Services by measuring any errors that occur; and
    • Conduct research and diagnostics to improve product offerings.
  • Functionality cookies – Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to tailor the Services to you. These cookies mean that when you continue to use or come back to the Services, we can provide you with our Services as you have asked for them to be provided. These cookies allow us to:
    • Show you when you are logged in
  • Other technologies- We may also use other Internet technologies, such as web beacons or pixel tags and other similar technologies, to deliveror communicate with cookies and analyze your use of the Services. We also may include web beacons in e-mail messages so that we know when you have opened an email message received from Dewpoint.

Unless you have adjusted your settings so that it will refuse cookies, our Services will place cookies on your devices when you log on to the Services. You may disable cookies by changing the settings on your browser and/or devices. Most browsers will allow you to choose the level of privacy settings you want. This lets you control your cookie settings so that you can:

  • See what cookies or other locally stored data you’ve got and delete them on an individual basis;
  • Block third party cookies or similar technology;
  • Block cookies or similar technology from particular sites;
  • Block all cookies or similar technologies from being set; or
  • Delete all cookies or similar technologies when you close your browser.

You can also manually delete an individual cookie or all of the cookies using your computer’s or device’s settings. Check your browser’s or device’s help or support menu for further information.

Deleting cookies or similar technologies means that any preference settings you have made on a website will be lost. If you have set your preferences to opt out of cookies, this setting will be lost too, as that information is stored in a cookie. Remember that if you disable cookies it is likely to affect how the Services work and you may not be able to access or use certain features of the Services. We do not recommend turning all cookies or similar technologies off when using our Services as we cannot guarantee that your experience on our Services will be as good as it could otherwise be.

If you want to reduce your settings at any time (for example, if you accept all cookies, but later decide you do not want a certain type of cookie) you’ll need to use your browser settings to remove any third party cookies or similar technologies dropped on your previous visit.

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. Dewpoint and the Services do not recognize DNT. Please note that flash cookies operate differently than browser cookies and cookie management tools available may not remove flash cookies.

  • We use Google Analytics, which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how users engage with the Services. We do not have access to, nor control over, third parties’ use of cookies or other tracking technologies. Like many tools, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions, as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our Services. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Services. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors.
