PRIVACY POLICY

DNA Crack values and respects your right to privacy.  This privacy policy explains how DNA Crack LC (“DNA Crack”, “we” or “us”) collects and uses your personal information at its website dnacrack.com. This Privacy Policy also explains how you can control the collection, correction and/or deletion of certain types of information that we collect.  Additionally, the Privacy Policy explains how information is used as part of the DNA Crack Services (DNA Crack website and its various features including the DNA Crack Online Store).  This Privacy Policy does not apply to information we collect by other means (including offline) or from other sources. Further, this Privacy Policy does not apply to any websites, webpages, blogs, applications, widgets or other services operated by any third party, including our affiliates, advertisers, providers and partners.  

 

Information We Collect

Personally Identifiable Information

In general, DNA Crack does not collect personally identifiable information on the DNA Crack Services except as set forth below. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personally identifiable information” is data intended to be used to identify, contact or locate a person, including, name, address, telephone number or e-mail address and any other information (even if non-personally identifiable) provided in combination with such personally identifiable information.

You provide us information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail, and address when you register, place an order or post content through the DNA Crack Services, including registering for the use of certain features such as email newsletters, promotional offers, survey participation, and sharing comments. If you correspond with us by email, we may retain the content of your email messages, your email address, and our responses. We may also retain any messages or other content you send through email correspondence or post through the DNA Crack Services.

DNA Crack may collect information about your transactions with us, and combine such information with information about you in our possession. This information might include information necessary to process payments, such as billing information and your credit card number.  

 Non-Personally Identifiable Information

When you visit this website, third parties such as advertisers, vendors and service providers may collect non-personally identifiable information. For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “non-personally identifiable information” is data that is not personally identifiable. DNA Crack and these third parties may implement certain technologies to enable the collection of such information. An explanation of these technologies is below.

Cookies Information: When you visit this website, we may send one or more cookies—a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters—to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser and enhances your navigation through the site. A cookie may also convey information about how you browse the site. The use of cookies on our website is anonymous and does not allow us to gather personally identifiable information about you. You can set your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features of the DNA Crack Services may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Web Beacons/Click-Stream Data: A web beacon is an electronic file that signals when a webpage, advertisement, video, other content, an email, or a newsletter has been viewed. We may use web beacons in our emails and newsletters, or on our websites and services. DNA Crack may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to collect click-stream data that helps us better understand how visitors move from page to page within our websites. As with cookies, our use of web beacons is anonymous and does not allow us to gather personally identifiable information about you.

Passive Browser Information: DNA Crack collects passive browser information though its web servers. We use the passive browser information to help us understand how many visitors come to our websites and where they come from, and ultimately to help us make decisions about how to organize the websites and deliver advertising.

Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you visit the DNA Crack Services, servers automatically record certain log file information. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, other unique identifiers (“Device Identifier”) for your computer, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, data about how you interact with links on the site, and other such information.  We may use this information to help us understand how visitors navigate and interact with the website for the purpose of enhancing your use of the DNA Crack Services. 

Third-Party Data Providers: DNA Crack may supplement the information it collects with other non-personally identifiable information provided by third-party data providers. The information provided may include estimates of your age, gender and your interests, but does not include personally identifiable information.

Other Third-Party Service Providers: DNA Crack may engage third parties to provide services or to support aspects of our business on our behalf. In connection with those relationships, such third parties may collect data on our behalf. In that case, the third party would only collect and use such information as instructed by us and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Third Party Use of Technologies: Third parties may set and access their own cookies on and through third-party websites, or in and through our emails and newsletters. How other companies use their own cookies and the information they gather is subject to those companies’ privacy policies, not this Privacy Policy.  

 Third Party Advertisements

In the event that an advertiser asks DNA Crack to show an advertisement to a certain audience and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they are trying to reach. In addition, third-party advertisers may use non-personally identifiable information about your visits to this site in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that they believe may be of interest to you.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we cannot control the activities of, third-party advertisers. Please consult the respective privacy policies of such advertisers for more information on this practice such as your choices about not having this information used by these companies.

Personally Identifiable Information

DNA Crack will not rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others.

Note that, with respect to disclosures occurring pursuant to (2) or (3), above, any third-party with which DNA Crack shares personally identifiable information will be bound by this Privacy Policy. DNA Crack may also store personally identifiable information and user content in locations outside the direct control of DNA Crack (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with hosting providers).

Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the DNA Crack Services, such as reviews, comments or other user content, becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. If you remove information that you have posted on the DNA Crack Services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived form, or if other users have copied or saved that information.

From time to time, we may run contests, special offers, or other events or activities (“Events”) on the DNA Crack Services, or together with a third-party partner. If you provide information to such third parties, you give them permission to use it for the purpose of that Event and any other use that you approve. We cannot control third parties’ use of your information. If you do not want your information to be collected by or shared in this way, you can choose not to participate in these Events.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

In the event that we use a third party to provide services or to support aspects of our business on our behalf, DNA Crack may share non-personally identifiable information with the third party to be used by them only for the purpose of providing their services to DNA Crack. These third parties may provide services to us (including, for example, payment and delivery services) and we may receive information about you from them.
