Privacy Policy


Domain Development Corp. and its affiliates (collectively, "DDC") are committed to protecting the privacy of your information, informing you what information we collect and why, and empowering you to control the information you share with us. This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") describes DDC's information practices with respect to the websites owned or operated by DDC ("Sites") and DDC products ("Products") and services ("Services") available or enabled via the Sites, because by using any of our Sites, Products, and/or Services, you consent to the collection, transfer, storage, disclosure, and use of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. This includes any information you choose to provide that is deemed sensitive under applicable law. This Privacy Policy does not apply to DDC or DDC affiliated websites relating to loans and/or insurance or to any products or services available on such loan and/or insurance sites, all of which are governed by the privacy policies and Terms of Service accessible directly from the applicable website(s). Regardless of which country you live in, you authorize us to transfer, store and use your information in the United States. The privacy and data protection laws and rules of the United States may vary from those in the country where you live.

I. INFORMATION COLLECTED

DDC uses common Internet technologies such as cookies and Web beacons to keep track of users' interactions with DDC's Sites, Products, and/or Services and to improve the quality of its service. DDC may also collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information, your referring website addresses, browser type, domain name and access times.

  • Cookie: When you visit one of DDC's Sites and/or utilize a DDC Product or Service, DDC's servers may send a cookie (a small file with a string of characters) to your computer. Standing alone, cookies do not personally identify you but would recognize your web browser; unless you choose to identify yourself to DDC (through an account or otherwise), you will remain anonymous to DDC. A cookie can be either session based (assigned to you each time you sign in) or persistent (it identifies browsers that have previously visited DDC's Sites or utilized a Product or Service). Most web browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can disable your web browser's ability to accept cookies; however, if you do so, certain Site, Product or Service features may not work.
  • Web Beacon: A web beacon is an electronic image on a web page that recognizes certain types of information on your computer when you visit that particular web page.
  • IP Address: an Internet Protocol Address is a numerical label that is assigned to each computer on the Internet.
  • Referring website address: a referring website address identifies the address of the webpage you were on previously.
  • Browser: A browser is a software application used for retrieving, presenting, and traversing information resources on the World Wide Web.

In addition, DDC may utilize third parties to track and analyze usage information, and in so doing may use third party cookies or other technologies. This Privacy Policy does not cover how third parties use cookies or other technologies or any information third parties gather or share; third party information practices are addressed in the third parties' privacy policies. DDC shall not be liable for information collected by third parties.

  • Voluntary Collection: DDC may collect certain information that personally identifies you ("PI") or is protected personal information ("PPI"), such as your name, address, email address and/or billing information (collectively referred to herein as "personally identifiable information"), if you choose to share such information. For example, this information may be requested as part of account registration, the purchase of Products or Services, or some other information request. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you elect not to register or provide the requested information, you may not be able to access certain content, products, services or features or participate in certain areas of the Site.
  • Publicly Posted: Information that you post on or through any public areas on the Sites (or elsewhere on the Internet) may be collected and used by anyone and may result in unsolicited messages or other contact from others.

II. HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?

DDC uses the collected data to communicate with you, to customize content for you, to make it easier for you to utilize our Sites, Products, and/or Services and to maintain and improve DDC's Sites, Products, and Services.

For example, the information we collect enables DDC to:

  • customize the advertising and content you see
  • fulfill your requests for Products and Services
  • improve its services
  • contact and communicate with you
  • conduct research and analysis
  • provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients
  • provide you with additional information

III. WHEN DO WE SHARE OR DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION?

  • We may share non-personal information with others, such as advertisers, sponsors, and business partners, in aggregate anonymous form (meaning the information shared will not contain any personally identifiable information about you).
  • We may share and/or disclose your information at your direction.
  • We may engage service providers to perform functions, gather data, and provide services to us. For example, we may use a variety of third-party services to help provide our Sites, Products, and/or Services and to help us understand and improve them, such as Google Analytics. We may share your private personal information with such providers subject to obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and on the condition that the third parties use your private personal data only on our behalf and pursuant to our instructions.
  • In the event of a sale, merger, consolidation, change in control, transfer of substantial assets, reorganization or liquidation, we may transfer, sell or assign information to our successor or buyer subject to the terms of this privacy policy.
  • We may disclose your personally identifiable information if it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect our or our users' rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's, including a government's, request to disclose your information.

IV. ACCESSING OR RECTIFYING YOUR INFORMATION

You have the right to obtain from DDC free information about your personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information.

If the information DDC holds about you is inaccurate or not complete, you have the right to ask us to rectify it. If that data has been passed to a third party with your consent or for legal reasons, then we must also ask them to rectify the data.

V. ERASING YOUR INFORMATION

DDC shall process and store your personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by applicable laws or regulations to which DDC is subject to.

You have the right to request the erasure of your information. This is sometimes called 'the right to be forgotten'. You have the right to the erasure of personal data concerning you without undue delay, and DDC shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay when:

  • The original purpose for the personal data is no longer necessary or the data itself is no longer necessary for the purpose
  • When you no longer consent.
  • If you object to your data being processed and there is no legitimate reason to override this objection.
  • If the data being processed relates to the offer of information society services to a child.
  • If the data is ever processed in breach of data protection regulations (i.e GDPR).
  • There is a legal obligation to erase the data.

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and you wish to request the erasure of personal data stored by DDC, you may at any time contact our Data Protection Officer or the controller who shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that you have requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required.

VI. OBJECT, RESTRICT, OR WITHDRAW CONSENT

You have the right to ask DDC to restrict how we process your data. This means we are permitted to store the data but not further process it. We keep just enough data to make sure we respect your request in the future.

It is your right to lodge an objection to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time, to the processing of personal data concerning you. This also applies to profiling.

DDC shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If DDC processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to DDC to the processing for direct marketing purposes, DDC will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning you by DDC for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

If you have given DDC your consent to process your data but change your mind later, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, and DDC must stop processing your data.

VII. DATA PORTABILITY

DDC must allow you to obtain and reuse your personal data for your own purposes across services in a safe and secure way without this effecting the usability of your data. In exercising your right to data portability, you shall have the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

VIII. AUTOMATED INDIVIDUAL DECISION-MAKING

You shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you, or similarly significantly affects you, as long as the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and a data controller, or (2) is not authorized by law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on your explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and a data controller, or (2) it is based on your explicit consent, DDC shall implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your point of view and contest the decision.

IX. CHILDREN AND OUR SITES, PRODUCTS, AND/OR SERVICES

Our Sites, Products, and/or Services are not directed to children and you may not use our Sites, Products, and/or Services if you are under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information online from children under 18. Because we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 18, we do not knowingly distribute information to third parties. Our Sites, Products, and/or Services may include content that may be unsuitable for children under 18 and are not necessarily monitored. DDC encourages parents to talk to their children about online safety and to monitor their children's use of the Internet.

You must also be old enough to consent to the processing of your personal data in your country (in some countries we may allow your parent or guardian to do so on your behalf).

X. THIRD PARTY WEBSITES

The Sites, Products, and Services may contain links to websites or content operated and maintained by third parties over which DDC has no control. Privacy policies on such linked websites may be different from our Privacy Policy, and you access such linked websites or third party content at your own risk.

XI. SECURITY

Information that DDC collects from the Sites, Products, and Services is stored on servers that DDC solely manages, using standard security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information. Please be aware that no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, DDC cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit on or through the Sites, Products, or Services and you do so at your own risk.

XII. CHANGES TO PRIVACY POLICY

DDC reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time and will do so by posting the revised Privacy Policy on the Sites. The new Privacy Policy will apply to all current and past users of the Sites, Products, and Services and will replace any prior Privacy Policies that are inconsistent. Your continued use of the Sites constitutes your agreement to the Privacy Policy as revised.

XIII. DISPUTE RESOLUTION

This Privacy Policy shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements made and performed in California, excluding the application of the conflict of laws provisions. You agree that any action or suit brought by a party to enforce or adjudicate your rights under this agreement shall be brought in the federal or state courts located in Los Angeles, California.
