Dickman Supply Gathers User Information In The Following Processes:
We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
Dickman Supply gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe to the Dickman Newsletter. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters at the time of registration.
Dickman Supply gathers information of users who voluntarily subscribe to online events and games. This information is used in conjunction with the event and usage is directly related to and dependent on the activity.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. Dickman Supply may use a system to "tag" users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
Dickman Supply may occasionally conduct user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We sometimes share the aggregated demographic information in these surveys with our sponsors, advertisers and partners. We never share any of this information about specific individuals with any third party.
Dickman Supply tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. Dickman Supply does break down overall usage statistics according to a user's domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user's browser).
Dickman Supply sometimes tracks and catalogs the search terms that users enter in our Search function, but this tracking is never associated with individual users. We use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

We send out newsletters to subscribers on a regular schedule and occasionally send out special editions when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing. Dickman Supply never shares newsletter mailing lists with any third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
