Types and collection methods
DAP may collect Personal Information about you when you interact with us, such as creating or registering for an account, using our products and services, downloading our software, requesting information, requesting notifications for service bulletin or products and service updates, participating in surveys, submitting a job application or when you otherwise actively provide us with data and Personal Information. In each such instance, you will know what data we collected because you voluntarily submitted it. You are not required to provide any Personal Information that we have requested, but if you chose not to do so, you may not be able to access certain content on our Website or products and services offered or we will not be able to respond to any inquiries you may have or process your orders. In general, you can visit DAP’s Websites without telling us who you are or revealing any Personal Information about yourself. Other sources for obtaining Personal Information about you are meetings, email or other communications, and are provided to us equally on voluntary basis.
If you choose to provide DAP with a third party’s Personal Information (such as name, email, and phone number), you represent and warrant that you have the third party’s permission to do so.
DAP does not actively collect Personal Information through third parties.
Where DAP collects Personal Information, we intend to post a purpose statement that explains why Personal Information will be collected and whether we plan to share such Personal Information outside of DAP or those working on DAP’s behalf. DAP does not intend to sell your Personal Information or to transfer it without your consent to third parties who are not bound to act on DAP’s behalf unless such transfer is legally required.
We reserve the right to fully use and share information on an aggregated basis, which is not personally identifiable about the user, with third parties for marketing, advertising, research or similar purposes unless the content is governed by other regulations (export control, ITAR, …)
We also reserve the right to gather background information on the Internet and specifically Social Media platform about job applicants. Personal Information collected from queries on the Internet and Social Media platforms are not stored on DAP’s data storage systems but are used to form opinions on applications.
Transfer and storing
If you choose to provide us with your Personal Information you fully understand and consent to the possible transfer that Personal Information within DAP (including its subsidiaries and affiliates), across borders, and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions, specifically USA, Canada, and certain countries within the European Union.
Furthermore, DAP does not make any use of cloud storage, cloud data processing services or other online data processing. Your Personal Information will always stay within DAP’s safeguarded IT-environment.
