Data in our customer relationship management records to better understand and serve you.
5.10 Do Not Track. DTN does not directly track you when you visit other websites or engage in
other activities online, so we do not register Do Not Track (DNT) signals from your

operating on our Sites (discussed below) to determine whether they honour DNT signals. For
more information on “do not track” options, please see: http://donottrack.us/.
5.11 Analytics. We automatically collect Personal Data to make use of analytics tools such as
Google Analytics and Eloqua to analyse trends, administer and improve our Services, and
track Users’ movements around the Services and on the Internet, and to gather demographic
information about our user base as a whole. These third party analytics companies do not seek
to identify individual users or to receive personally identifiable information except as may occur
when they use your IP address. This information helps us to improve our Services and deliver
a better and more personalized service. Many of these companies, such as Google Analytics,
collect and use information under their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to
review. For more information about Google Analytics or Eloqua analytics and their privacy
policies, please visit the Google Analytics privacy page and/or the Google Partners’ Page and
the Eloqua privacy page. You may opt-out of Google Analytics or Eloqua web monitoring by

however be necessary for us to process additional Personal Data. When such happens, DTN
will adhere to the safeguards as set out in this Statement.

the contract we have entered into with you or the company you work for, or we may be
prevented from complying with our legal obligations. Certain information is necessary to enter
into an agreement with us and if not provided, we may not be able to enter into such agreement
with you.

make payments through the Services. In such event, DTN may use a third-party shipping
company, such as UPS or FedEX, to fulfil customer orders through the Sites, and may also

unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we
made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your
request.
