Personally Identifiable Information Collection and Use
At our website, we do not collect personally identifiable information from individuals unless they provide it to us voluntarily. Personally identifiable information, like names and e-mail addresses, is collected only when voluntarily submitted by the website's visitors so that they can avail themselves of the site's interactive features. If you have elected to receive information from the website, Dickinson may occasionally co-promote with other reputable organizations and companies, and you may receive from Dickinson joint offers that include promotional information about such other organizations and companies. Please note that your information is not sold or transferred to these other organizations or companies; the e-mail will come from Dickinson.
From time to time, the website will carry various online promotions and offers, and any personally identifiable information you provide in response to those offers will only be used for the specific offer or promotion, unless you give us permission to use such information for another purpose. If you send an e-mail to the website, your name and e-mail address are used only to respond to your inquiry. The information provided in the e-mail is not used after we respond to your inquiry and is deleted from our system in the normal course of business.
Dickinson will not share your personally identifiable information with others (except as provided below), without your permission. We may also disclose personal information if we are required to do so by law or, if in our good faith judgment, such action is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process, to respond to any claims, or to protect the rights of Dickinson and its customers and the public.
For the purpose of website and promotional program administration, agents, contractors or partners of Dickinson may have access to your personally identifiable information in connection with providing services for us. Such agents, contractors or partners will keep this information confidential and will use it only to carry out the services they are performing for Dickinson.

We may ask for demographic (age, gender, etc.) information in a survey or at registration. This information is used to assist Dickinson in tailoring the website and our products to visitors and consumers. We may share aggregated demographic and survey information, as opposed to individual information, with third parties.
