As a general policy, with the exception of IP addresses, no Personal Information is automatically collected from visitors to the David Dawson website. David Dawson may gather and analyze IP addresses and certain Information of a Non-Personal Nature regarding website usage by visitors to the David Dawson website.

Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
In certain portions of the David Dawson website, certain Personal Information may be voluntarily and knowingly provided to us by visitors to the David Dawson website. When entering a contest or requesting franchise information, for example, we will ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, as well as certain other information.
David Dawson may use Personal Information for editorial, feedback or other fully disclosed purposes, such as to enter you into a contest or respond by email to an inquiry that you posed on-line, to the extent such use by David Dawson is explained to visitors when the information is voluntarily and knowingly provided to David Dawson. We may also match your Personal Information that you provide to us on this website to information contained in our database. Your Personal Information may also be used by David Dawson, or any other division of David Dawson, to contact you regarding other products or services which may be of interest to you (including those that we may offer jointly with other companies).
We will not give, sell, rent, or loan any of your Personal Information to any third party (with the exception of third parties performing functions on our behalf who have an obligation to keep your information completely confidential or a third party who buys our business) unless you have authorized us to do so.
David Dawson reserves the right to access and/or disclose Personal Information where required to comply with applicable laws or lawful government requests or, in David Dawson’s reasonable opinion, to operate the David Dawson website properly and securely, or to protect David Dawson or visitors to this website. David Dawson, acting reasonably, shall attempt to obtain the prior consent of the individual to whom such Personal Information relates prior to disclosure to third parties.

A Note to Parents
David Dawson is very sensitive to privacy issues and is committed to protecting the online privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users. As a result, no Personal Information should be submitted to or posted on this site by children under the age of 13 without their parent’s or guardian’s permission. In addition, if a user younger than 13 wishes to send us Personal Information, he or she must first give us his or her parent’s or guardian’s email address so that we can obtain their permission, or have the child’s parent or guardian consent on his or her behalf. No Personal Information will knowingly be accepted from a child under 13 before this permission is obtained. Be assured that David Dawson will not condition a child’s participation in any website activity on the child’s disclosure of more Personal Information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity.
If your child has already provided us with Personal Information, you may ask to see this information for the purpose of correcting it, or ask us to delete this information from our records entirely (see “Who to Contact” below).
