Our site https://dplinks.com

This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from users of the Site.

last update 7/8/2020

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

We use your Personal Information only for providing and improving the Site, personal communication, our products, and to support you and our legal requirements as sellers of products and services. By using the Site, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

We will anonymize your IP address. The IP anonymization sets the last octet of your IPv4 IP addresses and the last 80 bits of your IPv6 addresses to zeros in memory shortly after being sent to the Analytics Collection Network. The full IP address is never written to disk in this case; thus your Personally Identifiable IP address is not saved by The Portugals in Spain.

For users logging in with accounts on our site an IP address will be collected and anonymized before storing it to the database. Additional data such as login time and number of logins will be stored for analytical and security reasons. Subscriber information is retained in the local database indefinitely for analytic purposes and for future export. Data is retained until requested or user has been deleted.
