You are not required to provide all personal information identified in this Privacy Policy to use our Services or to interact with us, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain personal information.

  1. Cookies  


A cookie is a small string of information that a website that you visit transfers to your browser for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity while using a website or across websites, and that information helps companies understand your preferences and tendencies, as well as improve and personalize your website experience. Some cookies are necessary to operate a website, while others can be functional, analytical, or used for targeted advertising (as discussed in more detail below). More information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org 


Cookies on our website, (the “Site”) are generally divided into the following categories: 


  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are required for the operation of our Site.  They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas.  These cookies are session cookies that are erased when you close your browser. 

  • Analytical/Performance Cookies: These allow us to recognize and count the number of users on the Site and understand how such users navigate through the Site (e.g., when and which pages are visited, in what order the pages are visited, how long a user may stay on a particular page, and where a user is located).  This helps to improve how the Site works, for example, by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily.  These cookies are session cookies which are erased when you close your browser. For example, we use Google Analytics for this process. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ and www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html. You can optout of Google Analytics’ collection and use of data generated by your use of the Site by going to http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.    

  • Functional Cookies: These improve the functional performance of the Site and make it easier for you to use.  For example, cookies are used to remember that you have previously visited the Site and asked to remain logged into it.  These cookies qualify as persistent cookies, because they remain on your device for us to use during your next visit to the Site.  You can delete these cookies as detailed below. 


You can prevent the use of certain cookies by modifying your Internet browser settings, typically under the sections Help or Internet Options.  If you disable or delete certain cookies in your Internet browser settings, you may still access the Site, however, you might not be able to access or use important functions or features of the Site, and you may, for example, be required to re-enter your log-in details.   



Once our mobile application (the “App”) goes live, our App will use Google Firebase Analytics which uses SDK (Software Development Kit) features to log certain activities while using the App for analytical purposes. This information helps us understand your preferences and tendencies, as well as improve and personalize your App experience. You can prevent the logging of certain events by such SDK features by limiting the permissions you provide to the App, (e.g., GPS, camera). 


Device Information 


Similar to cookies, we may automatically collect certain information about the device you use to access the Services. For example, we may collect and analyze information such as IP addresses, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser types, browser language, operating system, the state or country from which you accessed the Services, and other information about your mobile phone or other device(s). In addition to analytical purposes, this information helps us diagnose problems with our server, administer the Services, and display the content according to your preferences. 


Do Not Track 


Dio respects your privacy, but we do not alter the information we collect or change the Site upon receiving do-not-track signals, as the term appears in Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 22575(b)(5). For more information about DNT signals, visit http://allaboutdnt.com.

We have no control over these linked sites, each of which has separate privacy and data collection practices independent from us. As such, we have no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any such websites.
