For example, to process an order or provide a subscription, DRS may need to know a customer’s name, mailing address, e-mail address and credit card details. It is DRS’s intent to inform you before DRS collects personal information, such as user’s name and/or e-mail address on the Internet. If you tell us that you do not wish to have this information used as a basis for further contact with you, DRS will respect your wishes.

- Disclosure of the Information
(a) Within Organization. DRS may share your personal information within the DRS organization, and may transfer the information to countries in the world where DRS conducts business. Some countries may provide less legal protection for customers’ personal information.
(b) Mergers and Acquisitions. Circumstances may arise where for business reasons, DRS decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize its businesses in the United States or some other country. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal identifying information to prospective or actual purchasers, and/or receiving such information from sellers. It is DRS’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.
In a sale or merger transaction, DRS may sell or transfer business assets. In such transactions, customer information is generally one of the transferred business assets. Also, in the event DRS is acquired, customer information will be one of the transferred assets.

These companies and persons may be provided with personal identifying information required to perform their functions, but are prohibited by contract from using the information for other purposes. These persons engage in a variety of functions which include, but are not limited to, fulfilling orders, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer services
(d) Marketing Analysis by Third Parties. DRS reserves the right to disclose to third parties personal information about customers for marketing analysis; however, any information disclosed will be in the form of aggregate data that does not describe or identify an individual customer.
(e) Disclosure to Governmental Authorities. Under certain circumstances, personal information may be subject to disclosure to governmental authorities, or pursuant to a judicial or other government subpoenas, warrants or orders.
- Use of Computer Tracking Technologies
(a) Tracking of Personal Information. The Website may obtain personal information about visitors or other persons from third parties’ application program interfaces, or APIs. Through Website access logs, DRS collects clickstream data and HTTP protocol elements, which generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal purposes by technical support staff for research and development, user analysis and business decision-making, all of which provides better services to the public. The statistics garnered, which contain no personal information and cannot be used to gather such information, may also be provided to third parties.
In addition, our server logs automatically collect information, such as your IP address, your browser type and language, and the date and time of your visit, which helps us track users’ movements around our site and understand trends.
(c) Use of Web Beacon Technologies. DRS does not use web beacon technologies.
(d) Collection of Non-Identifiable Information. DRS may collect non-identifiable information from user visits to the Website in order to provide better customer service. Examples of such collecting include: traffic analysis, such as tracking of the domains from which users visit, or tracking numbers of visitors; measuring visitor activity on Website; Website and system administration; user analysis; and business decision-making. Such information is sometimes known as “clickstream data.” DRS or its contractors may use this data to analyze trends and statistics.
(e) Collection of Personal Information. DRS collects personal identifying information from customers during a transaction. DRS may extract some personally identifying information about that transaction in a non-identifiable format and combine it with other non-identifiable information, such as clickstream data. This information is used and analyzed only at an aggregate level (not at an individual level) to help DRS understand trends and patterns. This information is not reviewed at an individual level.
(f) Online Tracking. Online tracking technology enables website operators to collect personal information about consumers as they move across websites and other online services. Most browsers incorporate “do not track” (DNT) features in their privacy settings. When enabled, a DNT signal or request informs a website operator that the visitor does not wish to be tracked online. The Website is currently designed only for tracking movement within the Website. DRS does not honor DNT requests, and does not treat visitors who make DNT requests differently from visitors who do not make DNT requests. DRS also does not differentiate between visitors who make DNT requests and visitors who do not make such requests, when it comes to the collection or usage of personal information. DRS uses Google Analytics for various website analysis, and Google Analytics may conduct online tracking on the Website.
- Information Security
(a) Commitment to Online Security. DRS employs physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the security and integrity of personal information. Billing and payment is handled through a third party. Personal information is accessible only by staff designated to handle online requests or complaints.
(b) No Liability for Acts of Third Parties. DRS will exercise all reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of customer personal information. However, transmissions protected by industry standard security technology and implemented by human beings cannot be made absolutely secure. Consequently, DRS shall not be liable for unauthorized disclosure of personal information due to no fault of DRS including, but not limited to, errors in transmission and unauthorized acts of DRS staff and/or third parties.
- Access Rights to Data
(a) Information Maintained by DRS. Upon customer’s request, DRS will provide a reasonable description of customer’s personally identifiable information that DRS maintains in its data bank. DRS can be contacted by e-mail at info@DoctorAviation.com.
