Last updated 11/17/00
DASA takes safeguarding online privacy seriously. Please read the following to understand DASA’s privacy practices.
From time to time, DASA may need to change its privacy statement because of changes in its business, or in its attempts to serve your needs better. DASA will use reasonable efforts to publish any changes to its privacy statement.
What information does DASA gather?
There are times when DASA may need to gather specific information from you such as your name and address, among other personal information. Information that is essential for DASA to provide the services and/or products that are requested by you is generally designated as “Required”. Additional information that would allow DASA flexibility in providing its services or products, and may be used for internal statistical studies or market research, is generally indicated as “Optional”. For example, a credit card number is required when ordering a product, whereas a fax number may not be essential, but would provide another means of communication between you and DASA.
The choice of how much personally identifiable information you disclose to DASA is completely at your discretion. It is never mandatory for you to answer any question, although it may limit the services and products that DASA is able to offer.
How does DASA use personal information?
When you submit personal information to DASA, you understand that you are agreeing to allow DASA, its subsidiaries, and its affiliates, access to, storage of, and use of, the data in any of the countries where DASA, its subsidiaries, and its affiliates, do business, whether inside or outside of the United States.
DASA may use the personal information you submit for any purposes related to DASA’s business, including, but not limited to, generating statistical studies, conducting market research, improving its products and services, sending you surveys, and notifying you of information updates, seminars and conventions and any other changes within DASA that may affect you.
What choices do you have about how your personal information is used and what is DASA’s commitment to data quality and reliability?
DASA respects your privacy and realizes that not everyone likes to receive special offers or information.

DASA will use reasonable efforts to honor your requests, but we appreciate your patience in allowing us a reasonable amount of time for processing.
Does DASA share the information that it gathers with third parties?
DASA shares data with third parties as a value-added service that will assist you in finding products or services which you may not normally come across in daily life.

Should you decide you would not like your information shared with third parties, please use the contact information below to request that DASA deactivate you from its lists. DASA will use reasonable efforts to honor your requests. Please be aware that DASA has no control over removing your personal information from the lists of third parties. If you continue to receive materials from third parties after informing DASA to deactivate your name, please notify the particular third parties regarding deactivation of your personal information.
Does DASA share the information that it gathers with government agencies or law enforcement?
DASA reserves the right to monitor, and disclose to, government officials or law enforcement, without your consent, any communications and personally identifiable information, whenever prompted to do so, by legal authorities, even when you have requested that your information not be disclosed to third parties.
What is DASA’s commitment to data security?
DASA recognizes your concern for security, and will use reasonable efforts to establish secure connections with you and to limit access to databases containing personal information to authorized personnel only.

Are there online risks?
You should be aware of risks when you communicate on public newsgroups and message boards. On these forums, personal information may be collected and used by others outside of DASA to send unsolicited e-mails or postal mailings. DASA has no control over these actions. You should not post any information on these forums that you wish to keep private.
What are DASA’s contact procedures?
If you believe DASA has not adhered to its privacy statement, if you would like to be deactivated from DASA’s lists, or if you would like to update your personal information, you may notify DASA by e-mail, telephone, fax, or postal mail.
