Who we are
Why we collect data
During the course of carrying out our business and performing our services, Dotco collects personal data to conduct our business, provide our services, and meet our legal obligations.
You may refuse to provide us with some or all of your personal data although that may limit the ways in which we can interact with you, including providing you with our services.
When you access our website, your internet IP address is anonymised in our internet access logs (i.e., log files on server). We record the URLs of the websites and pages you visit, the times and dates of such visits, and information about the computer hardware and software used.
This information may include browser type and version, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data, number of visits, websites from which you accessed our site (Referrer), and websites that are accessed by your system via our site.
The processing of this data is necessary for the provision and the security of our website. We do not link these data to specific individuals. After the processing for the mentioned purposes, the data will be deleted.
Our contact form can be used to get in contact with us electronically. To handle your request it is necessary to provide us with a valid email address, and, in addition, we store your IP address and the time of your request to prevent any misuse of our contact forms. Alternatively, you may contact us via the e-mail address above. If you use one of these channels, the personal data transmitted will be stored automatically by Dotco as data controller to handle our contact with you.
Unsolicited special categories of personal data
We do not generally seek to collect special categories of personal data through this site.
“Special categories of personal data” includes the various categories of personal information and data identified by privacy laws of United States, European and other jurisdictions as requiring special treatment, including in some circumstances the need to obtain explicit consent. These categories may include personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data, data concerning health or data concerning sexual orientation.
Therefore, we advise you not to provide any unsolicited sensitive personal data if you contact us. Dotco applies HTTPS or other appropriate technical and organizational measures to secure personal data transmitted over its website.
When you visit our website, the following categories of cookies will be set in your browser:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around a site and use its features. Without these cookies services you have asked for cannot be provided.
These cookies collect information so that we can analyse how our visitors use our site. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how our site works.
In order to keep our website services relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use web analytics services to help us understand how people use the site.
Cookies allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited our website before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes, and it helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience.
Third Party Applications
Dotco shares your personal data with third parties, in particular no-Dotco parties, only with your express consent or under another lawful basis for processing under the applicable law.
Categories of non-Dotco parties with which we share your personal data include vendors such as host and cloud service providers and sub-contractors involved in the fulfilment of our contractual obligations towards our clients.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, www.google.com (“Google Analytics” or “Google”). Google Analytics employs cookies that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.
In using Google Analytics our website anonymises your IP address. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymises your IP address before transferring it from EU/EEA member states. Google uses this information to analyze your use of our site, to compile reports for us on internet activity and to provide other services relating to our website.
Google Analytics also uses electronic images known as web beacons (sometimes called single pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used.
