You may choose not to provide personal information to us. However, you may not be able to enjoy full use of DTA Global websites if you choose not to provide your personal information. You may choose to “opt out” of our use of personal information you feel is incompatible with the purposes for which it was originally collected or authorized by you by contacting us by email or by postal mail at the addresses shown in “Contact Us” section below.
In accordance with applicable data privacy laws, you may have the right to be provided with a copy of your personal information held by us; the right to request the rectification or erasure of your personal information held by us; to request that we restrict the processing of your personal information or object to the further processing of your personal information; and, where the processing of your personal information by us is based on consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent without detriment at any time. You may exercise these rights by contacting DTA Global by email or postal mail in the addresses shown in the “Contact Us” section below.
4. Use Of Collected Information
DTA Global uses personal information to establish and enhance our relationship with you. We may use personal information to (a) operate, provide, improve, and maintain the DTA Global websites; (b) to prevent abusive and fraudulent use of those websites; (c) to personalize and display content on the DTA Global websites; (d) to respond to your inquiries and for other customer service purposes; (e) where permitted by applicable law, to send you information, including via email, about our products and services in which we believe you may be interested; and (f) for administrative, operational and internal business purposes.
We may also use data collected on the DTA Global websites to remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit, and to monitor aggregate website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.
We use Google Analytics to analyze our users’ use of DTA Global websites. Google Analytics provides us with aggregated data in order to help us make informed business decisions. Google, as a third party, ultimately controls information collected through Google Analytics. Prior to using DTA Global websites you should be comfortable with Google’s privacy policies with respect to Google Analytics.
We may send you administrative messages and updates regarding your account, updates regarding the DTA Global websites, and, where permitted by applicable law, information regarding our products and services, including, without limitation, through social media updates, by email and postal mail. If you no longer want to receive unsolicited commercial email messages from us, you may indicate your preferences by taking the steps described in such messages. Also, you may indicate your preferences regarding commercial email messages and postal mail messages by contacting us using the information in the “Contact Us” section below.
Third-Party Ad Networks
We use third parties to assist us in displaying advertisements on third party websites, and to evaluate the success of our advertising campaigns. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to our website as well as other websites. This enables us, and these third parties, to target advertisements by displaying ads for products and services in which you might be interested.
You may opt out of many third-party ad networks, including those operated by members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and companies participating through the Digital Advertising Alliance in the US, the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada in Canada, or the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance in Europe. Please note that if your browser is configured to reject cookies when you visit an opt-out page, or you subsequently erase your cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, your NAI or DAA opt-out may no longer be effective. Ad blockers may also interfere with these controls.
5. Disclosure Of Collected Information
We do not sell or rent email addresses and other personal information that we collect. Please be aware, however, that any information you voluntarily choose to display on any publicly available portion of the DTA Global websites may be collected and used by us or others without restriction. We share your personal information as follows:
We may disclose personal information if we have a good-faith belief that doing so is required by a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order or otherwise required by law. Additionally, we may disclose personal information where we, in good faith, deem it appropriate or necessary to prevent violation of the DTA Global Terms of Service or our other agreements; take precautions against liability; protect the rights, property, or safety of DTA Global, any individual, or the general public; maintain and protect the security and integrity of our websites or infrastructure; protect ourselves from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; investigate and defend ourselves against third-party claims or allegations; or assist government enforcement agencies.
6. International Users
DTA Global websites are hosted in the United States, and we may use service providers in the United States and elsewhere to process personal information on our behalf. If you use the DTA Global Websites outside the U.S. please note that your personal data may be transferred outside of your home jurisdiction to the United States and to other jurisdictions where our service providers are located. Some of these jurisdictions, including the United States, do not have equivalent data protection laws as the European Union and other jurisdictions. By using our websites, you are agreeing that your personal data may be transferred to the United States and other jurisdictions, as explained in this section.
The security of your information is important to us. We use reasonable security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personal information under our control, both during the transmission and once we receive it. This includes, but is not limited to, the use of firewalls and encryption. Although we make good faith efforts to maintain the security of such personal information, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that it will remain free from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, or alteration. Further, while we work hard to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent “hackers” or other unauthorized persons from illegally accessing or obtaining this information.
If we learn of a security breach involving your personal information, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using DTA Global websites or providing personal information to us, you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the DTA Global websites. If a security systems breach occurs, we may post a notice on the DTA Global websites and may send email to you at the email address you have provided to us. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach, involving your personal information, in writing.
8. How Long We Keep Your Information
We will retain personal information for the period of time necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you; the length of time that lets us understand how people use our websites and the impact of marketing offers we make; whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; and whether the retention is advisable considering our legal position such as, for example, statutes of limitations or regulatory investigations.
We may continue to store anonymous or pseudonymized information, such as website visits, without identifiers, in order to improve our services.
Please be aware that even if you update or remove personal information you provided to us, your personal information may be retained in our backup files and archives for a reasonable period of time for legal purposes.

Like most web based services, DTA Global may automatically receive and record information when you use our websites using a variety of methods that may include “cookies” and “web beacons” to collect this information. This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalized web experience.
1. Cookies And Other Automated Passive Data Collection
All automated means of passive data collection will be jointly referred to as ‘cookies’ throughout this policy, except as set forth in this section. This section provides more information about some of those technologies and how they work.
Cookies store information about your activities on a website or other platform. For example, cookies can store your session information for easy sign-in to a website or other platform you have previously visited. They enable us to make your use of the DTA Global websites more enjoyable and to improve functionality.
Clear GIFs, also known as web beacons, are used in combination with cookies to help website operators understand how visitors interact with their websites. A clear GIF is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a website. The use of a clear GIF allows the website to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the clear GIF. It makes it easier to follow and record the activities of a recognized browser, such as the path of pages visited at a website.
Clear GIFs, which can be embedded in web pages, videos, or emails, can allow a web server to read certain types of information from your browser, check whether you have viewed a particular web page or email message, and determine, among other things, the time and date on which you viewed the Clear GIF, the IP address of your computer, and the URL of the web page from which the Clear GIF was viewed.
2. Information We Passively Collect
3. How We Use Passively Collected Data
On the DTA Global websites we may use passively-collected data to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit a DTA Global website; (b) monitor your interaction with various sections of our websites; (c) customize content, such as providing you with recommendations; (d) monitor aggregate website usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed; and (e) administer, operate, and improve the DTA Global websites.
4. Cookies We Use And Why
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as registering on the website, signing in, performing account related functions, customizing products, filling in forms, establishing your privacy preferences, facilitating language translation, and keeping track of shopping cart contents. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site may not work then.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are popular, ensure users are finding what they are looking for easily, and otherwise observe how visitors move around the site. With the exception of phone calls made to DTA Global, all information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.
These cookies may be used by our advertising partners to show you relevant ads on other sites based on your interests and previous browsing activity. They work by uniquely identifying your browser and device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will not experience our targeted advertising across different websites.
Whether a cookie is considered as a ‘first’ or ‘third party’ cookie refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those cookies set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g. cookies placed by www.outdoor-movies.com or www.dcprojection.com). Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user.
Session cookies allow website operators to link your actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Persistent cookies on the other hand are cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. We use both session and persistent cookies.
5. How To Disable Or Remove Cookies
You can configure your Internet browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies completely or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the website you visit. Please note that disabling cookies may interfere with the performance and features of DTA Gobal websites.
