Sharing Your Personal Data


We and our service providers collect and use information to provide you with a customized interactive experience and to make our Services more valuable to you.

DRS may share your personal data with third parties in order to complete the processing of your order, for example, processing credit card payments and activating purchases of web and email hosting services with our third party provider/partner, or to fulfill our contractual obligations, for example, providing required contact data elements to the applicable tld registry provider, ICANN, and ICANN accredited escrow provider. We may share any collected information in connection with a substantial corporate transaction, such as the sale of an DRS Service or division, a merger, a consolidation, an asset sale, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.

DRS may disclose personal data when deemed necessary in order to comply with any applicable laws, government rules or requirements, requests of law enforcement, or in compliance with any dispute resolution process (UDRP) or ICANN domain contact or WHOIS verification requirements. DRS will make reasonable attempts to notify customer when data is shared for this purpose.

Retention


DRS retains personal data only for as long as necessary to provide the service(s) you have purchased and to meet our contractual obligations or business requirements for record keeping purposes.

DRS will not process data in a way that is incompatible with this Agreement. DRS will take reasonable precautions to protect data from loss or misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

Security


We employ physical, electronic, and managerial safeguards in an effort to secure the information we collect. We provide a secure https web-based support/ticketing system. Because no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases or that information you supply will never be intercepted, accessed, or disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy. Because most email and mobile transmissions are not encrypted, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email, text messages, or other mobile transmissions.

Our web pages contain links to other sites, applications, platforms and services operated by third parties whose privacy policies we don't control and may differ significantly from ours.

DRS is not responsible for the content or privacy practices of these third-party services and we recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies of any such sites or services you visit or access.

Changes to This Privacy Policy


DRS reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes will be posted to this page, so please check back periodically.
