Privacy policy

Introduction

DNEG respects your privacy. This privacy policy explains more about the data we collect from visitors to www.dneg.com; what we collect, how we use it, how we store it and protect it and what your rights are.

We may change this policy and you should check back to this page from time to time to ensure that you’re happy with any changes.

 

What we collect and why we collect it

Website visitors

www.dneg.com is packed full of information about our projects, people and services.

Any data we record while you are using the site is used on aggregate to help us analyse website traffic or identify any performance issues.

We also use some third party tools to help us with this, specifically Google Analytics and Yoast SEO.

We DO NOT use data from the website for direct marketing.

Job Alerts

Visitors to our website have the option of registering for job alerts. If someone chooses to register for an alert they will be asked to provide:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email Address

These alerts are provided by a third party called Jobvite and data you choose to provide will be handled by them in accordance with the Jobvite Privacy Policy.

Events

We run events for partners or members of the public and we may use our website to gather expressions of interest or details about guests, to help with planning.

In such cases, we may request:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address
  • Contact telephone number (mobile or landline)
  • Social media usernames
  • Dietary requirements

Forms used on the site are provided by third parties, but accessible via our website. Providers of these forms currently include Google and Jobvite, but other services may be added in the future. Anyone completing these forms will be made aware of the third party provider we are using and advised to review the relevant privacy policy.

 

Log files

Every time someone visits our website a log file is generated on our host server. The log file records the time and date of your visit, the files that were requested, your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the referrer URL (if provided) and the browser version.

We collect this information to help us diagnose problems and administer our systems.

We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that you remain anonymous even though we may include your IP address in our aggregate information.

However, we may attempt to use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our terms of use, or to protect our services.

Our website is hosted by a third party called DigitalOcean. Please refer to their Privacy Policy for more details.
