Consent to Transfers to U.S. of Personal Information for Other Countries
The servers DIA uses to collect and store information reside in the United States. Thus, by voluntarily providing information through the DIA website or other medium, you consent to the transfer of your information, including personal information, to the United States.
Information Collected by DIA
The information that DIA receives, and how we use it, depends on what you do when visiting our website. DIA collects and uses your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information.
The DIA website automatically collects certain non-personal information from its visitors, such as the name of your Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the website, the pages that you view while browsing the website, browser types and versions, geographic information, device use, and the Internet address of any third-party website from which you linked directly to our website. This information is used to help improve the DIA website, personalize your experience, analyze trends and administer the website. All guests to the website can use the open portions anonymously. We may track the number of users who visit areas of the website for internal use, but this tracking will not identify users.
The DIA website will prompt you to voluntarily provide personal information if and when it is needed by DIA to provide a service or conduct a transaction that you have requested, such as registering as a member to gain access to members-only areas of the website or the personalized features of the website, ordering publications or registering for courses and webinars, downloading DIA products, accessing My Transcript to request credit for participation in an educational program, downloading a statement of credit, submitting information, joining the discussion boards and online forums, making contributions to DIA and communicating with DIA through email. The types of personal information that you may be asked to provide to DIA includes your name, home, business or other mailing address, title, company or organization, telephone number, mobile number, fax number, email address and credit card information.
In support of the uses described above, DIA may use personal information for the following purposes:
- to respond to your requests;
- to contact you with information about upcoming events, programs, products and services of DIA and to provide updates and other notifications;
- for analytical purposes and to research, develop and improve DIA’s programs, products, and services and content, including the DIA website; and
- to enforce this Privacy Statement and the other rules regarding use of this website.
DIA may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal process, protect the rights of DIA and its website or, in certain circumstances, to protect the health, safety or welfare of DIA or its employees, users of DIA’s products and services or members of the public.
Security of Personal Information
The security of personal information is important to DIA, and DIA employs various security measures to protect against the loss of information that is collected through the DIA website and other means. However, those providing personal information to DIA should keep in mind that the DIA website, network, and information management system are run on software, hardware and networks, any component of which may, from time to time, require maintenance or experience problems or breaches of security. No method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is one hundred percent secure and we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Users of the website are solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of their username and password and are responsible for any unauthorized use.
Disclosures to Third Parties
DIA will not sell, rent, exchange, publish or otherwise share your personal information with any third parties except as otherwise described in this Privacy Statement. In the ordinary course of business, DIA may engage third parties to provide services on our behalf, such as website hosting, packaging, mailing and customer service functions. DIA will only provide those companies the personal information necessary to perform the service, and they are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information and are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Member names and business contact information are made available to other members via DIA online communities.
You also may provide information to be published or displayed on DIA discussion boards, online forums, online communities, or other public areas of the website, or transmitted to other uses of the website or third parties (collectively, “User Contributions”). You provide User Contributions and transmit them to others at your own risk. We cannot control the actions of other users of the website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. Therefore, we cannot and do not guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons.
Access to Your Personal Information
You may review and update the information and contact preferences you provided to DIA through the website by visiting the customer profile area or contacting us at the email address below. In the customer profile area, you may view and edit your personal information, opt-out of DIA mailings and other marketing information. Please note that some non-marketing communications, such as product download and sales transactions, are not subject to general opt-out.
Members and other customers have the option to determine how they receive their various communications from DIA (i.e., whether they prefer to receive communications at their home email address rather than their work email address, etc.). After registration, members can change how they wish to receive their membership benefits and other customers can change how they wish to receive communications from DIA, through the Manage My Subscriptions feature of their customer profile.

Cookies and Tracking Technology
Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. We do not currently take action in response to these signals. We may revise this policy if and when a standard for responding to these signals is established.
We may use a web analytics service, such as Google Analytics, to record and analyze your activity on this website. The website or any such service may track your browsing across web sites that use the same service.
Links to Non-DIA Websites
The DIA website may include social media features such as the Facebook like button, widgets or interactive mini-programs that run on our website. These features may collect your IP address, browsing information and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policies of the parties providing them.
Protection of Children’s Personal Information
Our website is intended for adults, such as our members. DIA does not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 13. Please contact DIA at dia@DIAglobal.org if you suspect that DIA has collected any such information.
