DIP complies with the legislation on privacy and data protection in force in the Dominican Republic, that is to say Law No. 172-13, established with the purpose of providing comprehensive protection for the personal data contained in files, public registers, databases and other technical means of handling information for the provision of reports, whether of a public or private nature.
Such a commitment reflects the value we place on obtaining and maintaining the trust of our customers, business partners and other parties that share their personal data with us.
This Policy applies to all Internet Websites administered by DIP or in it’s name, including DIP’S business units throughout the world (with each one known as a “DIP Website”).
Although this Policy applies to all DIP, Websites each of these websites has a distinct purpose and distinct characteristic. If additional or different disclosures are required for any one of these DIP Websites, we will publish such disclosures on the website in question or provide a different Website Privacy Declaration on said website.Each DIP Website disclosure or declaration is supplementary and in amendment to this Policy.
In compliance with the requirements of the laws in force when collecting personal data by means of any of its Websites, DIP:
DIP collects the data you provide knowingly and voluntarily, in order to benefit from a DIP. DIP may collect your information in such a way so that you may receive email alerts upon completing a survey, or when requesting product information, asking a question or sending us an email with your comments. In many cases, this information may include personal data collection.
DIP will only use this information for the purposes for which you provided it. If you provided your email address on registering for email alerts, for example, we will use your email address to send you the solicited email alerts.
Similarly, we may use data collected DIP Websites for various business purposes, such as customer services, fraud prevention, improvements to our products and services or to offer you and your company information and offers that we believe may be of interest to you.
DIP stores the data sent automatically to us by your web browser. This data generally includes the IP address for your Internet service provider, the name of your operating system and the name and version of your browser. The data that we receive depends on your web browser settings. This data is only used to identify the improvements that should be made to our Website with the sole purpose of rendering it more compatible with the technology used by visitors accessing our site.
With that said, we do however suggest that you check your browser to set your browser preferences so that it only sends the data you are willing to share, according to its default settings.
The term “cookies” refers to a small data file stored on your computer when you access a website. Cookies and similar technology can improve your user experience by saving your preferences, personalizing your online experience, saving items in your shopping cart and sometimes even providing advertisements adapted to your interests. All DIP Websites use “session cookies”. A session cookie does not identify you as an individual and expires when you close your browser. When you access the DIP product catalogue, for example, a session cookie is stored on your computer in order to save a record of the pages you visited. We can then use this information to offer you recommendations on other products that may be of interest to you.
Some DIP Websites also use “persistent cookies”. These cookies do not expire when you close your browser, and instead remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire. On assigning an exclusive ID number to your computer, we can create a database of your preferences and previous selections that can appear automatically, saving you time and effort on future visits.
