Information Collected on DNAC Websites and How It May Be Used
When you access and use a DNAC website, there are 3 ways we may collect information about you:
1. Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
DNAC collects information that is sent to us automatically by your web browser. This information typically includes the IP address of your internet service provider, the name of your operating system (such as Macintosh® or Windows®) and the name and version of your browser (such as Internet Explorer® or Google Chrome®). The information we receive depends on the settings of your web browser. Please check your browser if you want to learn what information your browser sends or how to change your settings.
The information provided by your browser does not identify you personally. We use this information to create statistics that help us improve our sites and make them more compatible with the technology used by our online visitors.
2. Information Collected By Placing a ‘Cookie’ On Your Computer

However, no other user information is gathered. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you may set your browser to reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your computer. Although you are not required to accept cookies when you visit a DNAC website, you may be unable to use all of the functionality of the site if your browser rejects our cookies.
3. Information You Knowingly and Voluntarily Provide
You may also be asked to provide personally identifiable information on the DNAC website, which may include your name, address, DOB, telephone number, e-mail address. This information can be gathered when you register for services through appointment/inquiry/feedback forms or when e-mails are sent to nicolasandasp.ae.
DNAC uses this information for the purposes for which you provide it.

We may also use the information we collect on DNAC websites for various business purposes such as customer service, fraud prevention, market research, improving our products and services and providing you and your company with information and offers we believe may be of interest to you. We may also remove all the personally identifiable information and use the rest for historical, statistical or scientific purposes.

DNAC will not sell personal information collected from its websites to mailing list brokers.
DNAC may also share your personal information with third parties we hire to perform support services for us. These third parties are required to use the personal information we share with them only to perform services on our behalf and to treat your personal information as strictly confidential.
In some cases, DNAC may share your personal information with third parties who partner with us to provide products and services to our customers. When we do so, we will require our business partners to use the personal information we share with them in a manner consistent with the purposes for which it was originally collected (or to which you subsequently consented) and only as permitted under this Policy, any applicable Country or Website Privacy Statements, and all applicable privacy and data protection laws.
In certain, limited circumstances we may share or transfer personal information to unrelated third parties.
