Dynamic has centralized certain aspects of its data process and human resources administration in order to allow it to better manage its business. That centralization may result in the transfer of Personal Information from one country to another within the limits and subject to the requirements of the applicable laws. The countries where the information will be transferred may or may not have laws that seek to preserve privacy of the Personal Information. However, whenever Personal Information is transferred outside of the country, the Personal Information will be processed in accordance with the principals of this Policy and Privacy Legislation.
Individuals may obtain written information regarding cross-border transfers by contacting Dynamic’s Privacy Officer.
When an individual visits the Dynamic website, no personally identifiable information is collected unless the individual consents to that collection. The Dynamic website collects non-personally identifiable information as follows:
A. Non-personally Identifiable Information
Information from visitors to the Dynamic website is not tracked on an individual basis; but rather, the information is collected on an aggregate basis that includes all site visitors. Any visit to the Dynamic website automatically generates session log data consisting of the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which the connecting computer came (which contains no personal information), the website that referred the computer to the Dynamic website, the pages that are visited by the user, the date and time of those visits; and, the amount of time spent on the Dynamic website. Dynamic uses this information to perform analytics on users’ experience while using the site and to improve the functionality of Dynamic’s website to better meet user wants and needs; identify popular features; measure site activity including peak site usage times; and, page visits and click throughs. These site metrics may be shared with Dynamic’s affiliated service providers and others.
B. Cookies, Web Beacons and Advertisements
The Dynamic website uses “cookies”, web beacons/GIF/pixel tags, and third-party advertising networks that use ads and other tracking technologies to collect aggregate or other non-personally identifiable information to develop website metrics and improve a user’s online experience.
The Dynamic website may use session and/or persistent cookies to track user movement or other events across the website and the website of franchisees and business partners. A “cookie” is a small text file that helps Dynamic to improve the functionality of a user’s visit to the Dynamic website. Several different types of cookies are used by the Dynamic website. A session cookie is stored only on a visiting computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for an individual’s browsing session. When an individual closes all of the browser’s windows or shuts down their computer, the session cookie disappears forever. A persistent cookie is stored on an individual’s computer hard drive until a specified date. Persistent cookies stay on an individual’s computer until they expire, they are overwritten by new cookies, or the individual manually removes them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent a user from having access to some site functions or features.
The Dynamic website may use web beacons/GIF/pixel tags to help determine site metrics such as if a page has been viewed and how many times. In general, any electronic image viewed as part of a web page can act as a web beacon. When an individual requests information on a course or a newsletter, Dynamic may also use web beacons to establish how many of the emails are actually opened.
C. Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information on Dynamic’s Website
There are instances where Dynamic requests Personal Information on the Dynamic website in order to provide the user with a service, information on a course, a newsletter or where a user participates in interactive online activities such as course registration. Dynamic may conduct voluntary online surveys to obtain a user’s feedback. Dynamic requests e-mail addresses as a means of contacting a user if the user wishes to obtain ongoing information from Dynamic.
D. Links to other Websites
The Dynamic website may contain links to other websites. Dynamic encourages users to review the privacy statements of all sites which a user visits, including those whose links are provided, so that a user can understand how those sites collect, use and share a user’s information. Dynamic is not responsible for the privacy statements, content or data handling practices on other websites.
E. How Dynamic Uses and Discloses Information Collected From Dynamic’s Website
