Privacy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At DIVE Networks we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our products we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to other people, kept private, and permanently deleted.

DIVE Networks Inc. (“DIVE Networks”) operates www.dive-networks.com. It is DIVE Networks' policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, DIVE Networks 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. DIVE Networks' purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how DIVE Networks’ visitors use its website. DIVE Networks may share non-personally identifying information with 3rd party analytics services. From time to time, DIVE Networks may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Aggregated Statistics

DIVE Networks may collect non-personally-identifying statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. DIVE Networks may display this information publicly or provide it to others. 

Gathering and Use of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to DIVE Networks' websites choose to interact with DIVE Networks in ways that require DIVE Networks to gather basic personally-identifying information such as name, e-mail address, mailing address, and phone number. DIVE Networks uses the personally-identifying information we collect to provide you with services which you request and to improve our existing services and the content of our website. 

The amount and type of information that DIVE Networks gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. In each case, DIVE Networks collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with DIVE Networks.

When you contact DIVE Networks, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues that you might be facing. Depending on the country in which you live, work or access our website, your information may be retained for a reasonable time for use in future contact with you, or for future improvements to DIVE Networks services. In the event the information you provide to us is an application for employment, that application will be held in accordance with our HR records management policy.

If you are a registered user of the DIVE Networks website or a DIVE Networks mailing list and have supplied your email address, DIVE Networks 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 DIVE Networks and our products. We also use blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. You have the option to opt-out or opt-in for further communications from DIVE Networks.
