The legal basis for our collection and use of your personal information

This information may include unique browser identifiers, IP address, browser and operating system information, device identifiers (such as the Apple IDFA or Android Advertising ID), geolocation, other device information, Internet connection information, as well as details about your usage and interactions with the relevant website, application, email or other online property (for example, the URL of the third-party website from which you came, the pages and content on our Site that you view, how frequently you access or use the Services, and how you engage with or navigate our Services (including the links you click on), error logs, and other similar information). In some cases (such as cookies), the tools described here involve storing unique identifiers or other information on your device for later use.
These technologies help:
For example, in some cases, we assist with the collection of information by advertising services provided by third parties. We and ad services may track your online activities over time by collecting information through automated means such as cookies, and we or they may use this information to show you ads that are tailored to your individual interests or characteristics, your prior visits to certain websites, or other information we or they know, infer, or have collected from people like you.
How to opt-out of cookies
To opt out of the non-essential cookies, please select ‘Cookie Settings’ on our pop-up banner to view the full list of cookies in use and manage your preferences.

For mobile devices, please read your operating system's instructions for complete instructions.
You can also opt out of Google Analytics and customize the Google Display Network ads by visiting the Google Ads Settings page from each browser. Google also allows you to install a Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on for each browser.

We share your information with third parties as follows:
Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the United Kingdom or Europe, we ensure a similar degree of protection by using at least one of the following safeguards:
Please contact us at [email protected] if you would like further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of the United Kingdom or Europe.
We urge you to use a unique password for each of the Services, to keep them in a safe place and not to give them to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit to the Sites or your other use of the Services. However, no security method is perfect, and even if you take those steps, we cannot guarantee that any personal information will remain secure.
In general, we will retain your information in identifiable form only for the time necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal information, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information and the purposes for which we process your personal information, to determine if we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
Information may persist in copies made for backup and business continuity purposes for longer than original copies.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you, in which case we may use such information without further notice to you.
If you are a resident of Nevada:
If you are a resident of California:
Californians have a right to direct us not to “sell” certain personal information as that term is defined under the California Consumer Privacy Act or CCPA. You can exercise that right by completing our CCPA Data Requests Form or emailing us at [email protected].
CCPA Information and Deletion Rights
If you are a California resident, California law may permit you to request that we:
Certain information is exempt from such requests under applicable law. You also may have the right to receive information about the financial incentives that we offer to you (if any). You also have certain rights under the CCPA not to receive discriminatory treatment by dtx for the exercise of your CCPA rights. To request to exercise those CCPA rights, please email us at [email protected]. For security and legal reasons, dtx may not accept requests that require us to access third-party websites or services. We do not respond to browser-based do-not-track signals or similar mechanisms. We will take steps to verify your identity before responding to your request, which may include confirming that the browser in your possession matches the one associated with the relevant QR Codes, requesting that you respond to an email that we send to you, or otherwise verifying your name, email address or other information that will help us to confirm your identity.
If you are an agent making a request on behalf of a consumer, you must verify that you are authorized to make that request, which may include requiring you to provide us with written proof that satisfies CCPA requirements, such as an appropriate letter signed by the consumer or a power of attorney. We also may require the consumer to verify their identity directly with us.
CCPA “sale” of California personal information
dtx does not “sell” and has not “sold” personal information in the way those terms are conventionally defined. For example, we do not sell email lists or any other personal information in exchange for monetary value from a purchaser. However, the CCPA defines a “sale” in very specific terms, that may encompass some situations when a website or application uses third-party cookies and similar technology for its own analytics or advertising purposes, even when the website or application pays the third-party provider (not vice versa). dtx, like most companies, does use those sorts of services.
California Shine the Light Disclosure
The California “Shine the Light” law gives residents of California the right under certain circumstances to request information from us regarding the manner in which we shared certain categories of “personal information” with third parties for their “direct marketing purposes” (as defined in the Shine the Light law) in the prior calendar year. To exercise that right, please contact us as described below.
If you are located in Europe or the United Kingdom:
It is important that the personal information we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal information changes during your relationship with us.
Under certain circumstances you have the right to:
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personal information, object to the processing of your personal information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personal information to another party, please contact us.
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.
We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal information is not disclosed to any unauthorised people.
In the limited circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. To withdraw your consent, please contact us. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.
You can unsubscribe from dtx marketing emails at any time. If you have established an online account with our Services, you may also be able to login to that account to access or change your personal information, or to use certain privacy preference settings.
If you do not want us to see or access your device location, you can turn off location sharing on your device, change your device privacy settings, or change your device’s location settings for our application. Please note that disabling such features may result in you not being able to access or receive some of the present or future content available in the Services.
If you would like to opt out of receiving marketing or promotional emails from dtx, please contact [email protected] or follow the instructions in those messages. Please note that if you opt out, we may still send you non-promotional or non-marketing messages, such as communications regarding Services you have requested.
