Automatically Collected Information

DSI automatically collects certain types of information whenever you interact on this site and in some e-mails are sent to you. Techniques DSI uses for this purpose may include, for example, maintenance of web server logs and placement of cookies and web beacons. DSI uses the information collected through these techniques for the following purposes:

  • After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on the site, cookies enable the site to ‘remember' that information, should you so choose
  • Cookies and other passive information collection technologies enable us to deliver content that is tailored to your interests and preferences based on your past activity on the site.
  • Cookies and other passive information collection technologies enable DSI to compile aggregate statistics concerning use of the site, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the site.

Web Server Logs and IP Addresses

An IP address is a unique identifying number that is automatically assigned to any computer connected to the Internet. Depending on the nature of your Internet connection, the IP address may change each time you connect or may always be the same number for that computer. DSI reserves the right to log IP addresses for system administration, security, statistical analysis, demographic analysis of website use, and other functions.


Cookies are text files that are stored on a website user's computer by the website. Cookies allow DSI to help make your web experience better and to conduct website analysis and website performance reviews. Additionally, cookies can tell DSI how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies, although you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Note, however, that some portions of DSI’s sites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

This site may use social plugins (e.g., the Facebook "Like" button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit our site, the operator of the social plugin may be able to place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited DSI’s site. If you are logged into the social media website (e.g., Facebook) while browsing on DSI’s website, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited our website. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. For example, Facebook Social Plugins may allow Facebook to show your Likes and comments on DSI’s pages to your Facebook friends. Facebook Social Plugins also may allow you to see your friends' Facebook activity on our website. DSI does not control any of the content from the social media plugins. For more information about Facebook Social Plugins and other social media tools, and for more information about other social plugins from other social media websites, you should refer to those sites' privacy and data sharing statements.

Web Beacons

On certain web pages or e-mails, DSI may utilize a common Internet technology called a "web beacon" (also known as an "action tag" or "clear GIF technology"). Web beacons help analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.

Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain Personal Information about you. Only if you voluntarily submit Personal Information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can information about your use of our websites be linked to identifying information.

Response to "Do Not Track" Signals and Similar Mechanisms

Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to DSI about how or whether DSI or third parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities. Currently, DSI does not respond to such signals or mechanisms.

Public Forums

To the extent that this site makes forums, message boards and/or news groups available to you, please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information. You should exercise caution in disclosing identifying information there or in any other public section of the Internet.

Special Note Regarding Website Use By Children

If you are a parent and become aware that your child has provided DSI with information, please contact DSI using the "Contact Us" link on the website, and DSI will work with you to address the issue.
