This Policy contains details about how DNP collects, uses, shares and protects information from you when you use the Site.
This Policy covers only the Site identified above, and does not apply to information you may send us by other means. Other DNP sites and other online locations may have their own privacy policies, and you should consult those accordingly.
Effective Date of Policy
This Policy is effective as of July 29, 2019.
DNP may update this Policy from time to time. In the event DNP changes this Policy, the changes will be posted on this page and will be effective when posted. Any changes will be immediately incorporated into this Policy, and will be prospective only, unless DNP is legally required to make retroactive changes.
Your continued use of the Site after the changes become effective constitutes your acceptance of the changes. If any changes are unacceptable to you, you should stop using the Site.
If we make a change that will substantially affect how we use and/or share personally identifiable information that DNP already collected from you, we will attempt to notify you and give you thirty (30) days to opt-in to the changes as they pertain to your information. If you do not opt-in, your information will continue to be used in a manner that is consistent with the version of this Policy under which it was collected, or the information will be deleted.
