Privacy policy

At Drama Queen Communications Oy (referred to as “DQ” or “we” in this document), we are committed to protecting privacy. DQ has adopted privacy principles which guide how we protect and manage personal data and demonstrate how information practices are embedded in our culture. We aim to protect the privacy of visitors to the sites that we operate (collectively, the “Site”).

You can navigate most of the Site without giving us any personal information which identifies you. However, sometimes we might need additional information about you in order to provide you with information or services you want to receive from us.

The Information We Collect

The types of information

1. Personally identifiable information: This is information that personally identifies one individual from another or enables you to be individually contacted (for example, names, e-mail addresses and other contact information). This information is voluntarily provided to us by Site visitors and is used by us for responding to user submissions and fulfilling requests for further information about our services.

2. Aggregate user and tracking information: This information gives us insights on how Site visitors use our site. This data is anonymous and does not contain any personally identifiable information. We use this information to analyse the performance of our website, e-mails and marketing efforts.

Information you voluntarily provide to DQ

DQ only collects personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide. Examples of such personally identifiable information that you provide to us may include, among other information, your name, physical address and email address.

Other information DQ collects

When you visit our Site, we may automatically collect some information about your visit using cookies, log analysis software and other tracking technologies.

If you wish, you may set your browser to refuse cookies. However, by refusing to accept a cookie, you may not be able to use some of the features or functions of the Site. DQ cookie files do not contain personally identifiable information.

3rd Parties on Our Sites

In addition to data we directly collect, and data collected on our behalf through 3rd party service providers operating on our behalf, our sites may contain additional 3rd party content from companies over whom we do not have direct control. They will collect data like what we described earlier in “The Information We Collect” and may have their own cookies. These parties can change from time to time, but may currently include:

Google

Facebook

Twitter

These 3rd parties may use cookies for advertising purposes including targeting and measurement.

How DQ uses Information

We store the information you provide in a secure database to provide you with the information, products, and/or services you request and may be used to provide you with additional information about our services we believe may be of interest to you. The information is stored for a period and in a manner relevant to responding to your request unless you request that it be removed. The information you provide us will be shared with DQ employees and service providers to the extent necessary to administrate our systems and/or accommodate your request.

If you provide your name, mailing address, telephone and/or email address and request more information about DQ services, this information will be shared with appropriate DQ personnel to fulfil your request. This information will not be shared with non-affiliated third parties without your consent.

We use non-identifying and aggregate information about the use of the Site to improve the navigation, content and design of the Site. This information may include, for example, the most and least requested pages, analyzing traffic regarding specific features, and the number of users from different countries, among other things.

Promotions, surveys and voting

We may operate contests, sweepstakes or other promotions through the Site, which may require registration in order to enter. Your personally identifiable information may be used by us to contact you for winner notification, prize delivery confirmation or other promotional purposes. Your entry in the contest or sweepstakes may also result in your being added to our mailing lists as well as those of our promotional partners or clients associated with the contest or sweepstakes. Acceptance of a prize may require you (unless prohibited by law) to allow us to post publicly some of your information on the Site, such as in social media or on a winner’s page, in the event you win a contest or sweepstakes.

We may also request personally identifiable information from you via surveys or voting polls. Participation is voluntary and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to disclose information. At times, you may have to register to vote or to take part in a survey.

Exceptions

DQ may preserve and has the right to disclose any information about you or your use of the Site without your prior permission if DQ has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) protect and defend the rights, property or safety of DQ or its clients or their respective partners, employees, affiliates, other users of the Site, or the public; (b) enforce the Terms of Use for the Site; or (c) respond to claims related to your use of the Site. We may also disclose information as we deem necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or lawful governmental request or in the event of a sale or potential sale of DQ.

Data Security

DQ understands that the safety of your personal information is extremely important to you. Accordingly, DQ uses reasonable physical, technological and other measures to keep your information protected from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction, taking into due account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal information. Due to the nature of the Internet and related technology, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information and DQ expressly disclaims any such obligation.
