Delivering a smarter future
At Davidson Violette & Associates Inc. (DVAI), it is our intent to give you as much control as possible over your personal information and, in general, you can visit our websites without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. There are times, however, when we may need information from you for the purposes of conducting business.
We will let you know, at the point of collection, before we collect information from you and if you choose to give us personal information for the purposes of conducting business we will also let you know how we will use such information. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, we will respect your wishes. We do keep track of the domains from which people visit us and we analyze this data for trends and statistics, and then we discard it.
Personal Information: Personal information means any information about an identifiable individual, but does not include the name, title, business address or telephone number of an employee of an organization.
How We Use Information Collected: DVAI collects and uses personal information for several general purposes: to identify and understand your needs regarding current and new services; to personalize your experience on our websites; to develop and provide products and services; to inform you of products and services; to manage our business operations; to assemble statistics concerning the use of DVAI services; to allow for account billing and to maintain payment records; to provide customer services; and to meet legal and regulatory requirements. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
Information Sharing & Disclosure: Your personal information is not shared outside of DVAI without your permission except under certain conditions explained below. Inside DVAI, data is stored in controlled servers with limited access. DVAI may send your personal information to other companies or people under any of the following conditions: when we have your consent to share the information; when we need to share the information to provide the product or service that you have requested; when we need to send the information to companies that work on behalf of DVAI to provide a service to you; or when we want to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information that we think you’d like to receive from us or from our business partners (unless you have opted out of these types of communications). We will also disclose your personal information if required to do so by law, to enforce our user agreements or other contracts, or in urgent circumstances to protect personal safety, the public or our property. Note that in the event that DVAI discloses your personal information it will only be to the extent required to deliver the service, product or fulfil the request. All third parties are prohibited from using the information for any other purpose.
Retention of Information: DVAI will retain personal information only for as long as is necessary to conduct business and to meet statutory obligations. Information that has been archived for business continuity and disaster recovery purposes will not be purged other than through the normal course of backup and archival procedures.
Data Security: DVAI safeguards the data you send us with physical, electronic and managerial processes and procedures including backups and data archival for business continuity. In certain cases, DVAI also uses encryption mechanisms to enhance the security of data and data transmission.
Business Relationships: DVAI has entered into business relationships with organizations for the purposes of providing additional services. Where DVAI provides these services, the external organization is responsible for the privacy practices with DVAI simply providing the mechanisms for data collection. When personal information is collected for the service and is transmitted or stored on DVAI resources, then DVAI will ensure that there is suitable protection for the information. DVA will not use information collected via sub-contracted services for any other purpose not otherwise agreed to in the business relationship.
Third Party Sites: DVAI websites contain links to other sites. DVAI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
Privacy and Minors: DVAI does not target and does not knowingly solicit personal information from children under the age of 15, nor do we send them requests for personal information.
