Privacy Policy

Last updated: January 1, 2014

DNTaxGuide will make every reasonable effort to protect your privacy when you’re using our site. We ask that you do your best to help us help you by keeping your account secure.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DNTaxGuide collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.

DNTaxGuide’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how visitors use its website. From time to time, DNTaxGuide may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

DNTaxGuide also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on our sites. DNTaxGuide only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to DNTaxGuide’s websites choose to interact with DNTaxGuide in ways that require DNTaxGuide to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that DNTaxGuide gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.

For example, we ask visitors who sign up for an account to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with DNTaxGuide are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, DNTaxGuide collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DNTaxGuide. DNTaxGuide does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

DNTaxGuide may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, DNTaxGuide may monitor contributions to our site(s). DNTaxGuide may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, DNTaxGuide does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

DNTaxGuide discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on DNTaxGuide’s behalf or to provide services available at DNTaxGuide’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using DNTaxGuide’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. DNTaxGuide will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, DNTaxGuide discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when DNTaxGuide believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of DNTaxGuide, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a DNTaxGuide website and have supplied your email address, DNTaxGuide may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with DNTaxGuide and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. DNTaxGuide takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. DNTaxGuide uses cookies to help DNTaxGuide identify and track visitors, their usage of DNTaxGuide website, and their website access preferences. DNTaxGuide visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using DNTaxGuide’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of DNTaxGuide’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, DNTaxGuide may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in DNTaxGuide’s sole discretion. DNTaxGuide encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
