Note: DS Computer Services Limited does not read any of your private online communications.

DS Computer Services Limited encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to link to from DS Computer Services Limited so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information.

Use of your Personal Information

Computerly does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party.

Computerly does not use or disclose sensitive personal information, whatsoever.

Computerly keeps track of the Web sites and pages our customers visit within Computerly, in order to determine what Computerly services are the most popular. This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within Computerly to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area.

Computerly Web sites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Computerly or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Computerly; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Computerly, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The Computerly Web site uses “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalise Computerly pages, or register with Computerly site or services, a cookie helps DS Computer Services Limited to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Computerly Web site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Computerly features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Computerly or Web sites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

Computerly secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Computerly secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other Web sites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.

How long do we keep your Personal Information?

We keep your information for as long as it remains current, to enable us to use it for the reasons given in this Privacy Statement.

Changes to this Statement

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in legislation, Company and customer feedback. We encourage you to periodically review this Statement to remain informed of how we are protecting your information.
