Protection of your personal information
The personal information that you provide in connection with registering yourself as a user of Diplodock products or services or registering the Diplodock product is classified as Registration Information. Registration Information is protected in several ways. Access by you to your Registration Information is available through a password and unique username, which is the same as your E-Mail address. We recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. In addition, your Registration Information resides on a secure server that only selected Diplodock personnel and contractors have access to via password. Diplodock encrypts your personal information and thereby strives to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted to Diplodock.
Personal information that you provide that does not constitute Registration Information also resides on a secure server and is only accessible to selected Diplodock personnel and contractors via password. Since this information is not accessible by you, you will not be asked to select a password in order to view or modify such information.
Please note that any information you post to a public bulletin board, or other forum, such as the Diplodock User to User Forums (the "Forums"), is available to all persons accessing that location. Your E-Mail address will not automatically be posted on the Forums unless you modify the default setting to permit that, in which case your E-Mail address would be available to all persons accessing the Forums.
