When you use DMS Online Services we may receive or collect and we may retain personal information about you.
In particular, when you sign up to any DMS Online Services (such as electing to receive the DMS newsletter service or downloading any materials made available by DMS on the Site), you provide personally identifiable information such as your email address, your name, your age, and your nationality. Or, you may provide your e-mail address to participate in our interactive programmes, or your location to benefit from a customized newsletter adopted to the region where you reside.
In addition, we collect, by default, standard data such as your IP address or additional data like anonymous labels, through labels and information provided by OS in order to understand how DMS Online Services are being used or to benefit from push notification.
Individuals under 16. DMS does not intentionally, or knowingly, process personal information from individuals under the age of 16. When necessary, users under the age of 16 will be told not to submit any personal details. We will make every effort to delete any details of such users where a parent or guardian has informed us that these details have been collected.
Our main objective is to collect and use only the information we believe is necessary for the performance of DMS’s Site and the provision of DMS Online Services where available, in order to better understand your interests and improve your experience of using our Site.
We use your data (including personal information) notably to:
We will securely store your information confidential except when disclosure is required by law or for technical purposes. Indeed, your personal information may be transmitted to suppliers of technology and services to ensure the optimum operation of the Site and DMS Online Services. When this is the case, we will ensure your personal information is treated with a similar, but no less stringent, level of care as the one we apply.
We securely store your information for as long it appears necessary to ensure effective operation of our DMS Online Services in accordance with applicable law. If you have not interacted with us in any way, we will generally no longer hold your information after 5 years. We would only keep it for longer than this if we are required by law or if we have a regulatory reason to justify such longer retention.
DMS only processes your personal data for the purposes described in these Terms; it does not divulge them for other purposes.
If you request for us to no longer contact you, for example with marketing communications, we will retain the minimum amount of information about you so that we can ensure we remove you from any future communications. Please note that if you ask us to completely remove all information about you, and you subsequently use our products and services at a later date, we will no longer be able to recognise your previous request to not be contacted, which is why we would keep it and suppress it in line with industry standards.
As the internet is a global environment and we work with third parties across the globe, collecting and using your personal information may involve the transfer of this information internationally, including outside of the European Union. By using our products and services you acknowledge and agree to your personal information being transferred in this way, including to jurisdictions outside the EEA.
We maintain strict policies to ensure all information that is transferred is done so safely and securely.
The applicable legal framework is the European and United Arab Emirates framework irrespective of the country you reside in.
In the European Union, the processing of personal data is governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) No 2016/679.
For the Emirate of Dubai, the Dubai Ruler’s Decision no. 2/2017 and for the United Arab Emirates, the relevant laws and regulations of the United Arab Emirates, as applicable by the Emirate of Dubai.
You can exercise your right of access, request to modify, suppress or delete data related to you. However, please note that there are circumstances in which complete erasure of your information or ceasing to process your information will not be possible for operational, legal and business reasons. This may include if you remain a customer for whom we need to provide services, or if you wish us to no longer contact you for marketing purposes. In this case we may need to retain some of your details securely in order to facilitate this request by, for example, keeping you on a “do not contact” or suppression list. This will be the only purpose for which your data will be used if this is the case. You may request this by sending a letter to the following address:
