dQuery Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

dQuery is committed to protecting the privacy of visitors to our website. We have established this agreement to explain what information we collect through our website and how it is used, as well as protections for our users' personal information. In this agreement, "dQuery" refers to dQuery developers, administrators, and consultants. "User" refers to website visitors and anyone making use of dQuery services.

dQuery does not sell or rent user information under any circumstances, and we do not share user information without prior consent except as compelled by law. dQuery is located within the United States, however, and therefore will transfer, process, and store your information in the United States. If you are located outside of the United States, note that the United States may not provide as much protection as your home country.

Please read the following agreement carefully. By accessing or using any part of the dQuery website, you agree to become bound by this agreement's terms. If you do not agree to all of the terms and conditions of this agreement, then you may not access the website or use any services. If these terms and conditions are considered an offer by dQuery, acceptance is expressly limited to these terms.

Information We Collect

Logging: For visitors to our website, we generally log only basic information relating to HTTP requests. This information includes timestamps, IP address, user agent, and URL.

Cookies: We do not use persistent cookies on our website except for session cookies. We use session cookies only to track users who are logged in. Session cookies expire automatically after 30 days or may be cleared manually in your browser.

Voluntarily Submitted Information: In addition, dQuery collects and retains information you voluntarily submit to us. It is up to you whether to submit information to us, and how much information to provide. If you choose to sign up for a dQuery account, we may ask for identifying information such as a username and your email address and will retain that information. We may ask for additional personal information when you provide feedback or comments or otherwise communicate with us.

dQuery's Use and Disclosure of Information

In general, dQuery uses the information provided by you to allow you access to your account and dQuery services. We may use your email address to contact you regarding your account, dQuery services, your information, or changes to this agreement.

While dQuery endeavors to provide the highest level of protection for your information, we may disclose personally identifiable information about you to third parties in limited circumstances, including (i) with your consent or (ii) when we have a good faith belief that it is required by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena or other judicial or administrative order.

If we are required by law to disclose your personal information, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice (unless we are prohibited or it would be futile) that a request for your information has been made, in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address. If you do not challenge the disclosure request, we may be legally required to turn over your information.

In addition, we will independently object to requests for access to information about users of our site that we believe to be improper

Updating or Removing Your Information

You may choose to correct, update, access, or delete the dQuery account information you have submitted to us through your User Profile page at any time. Alternately, you may contact us by email to request changes (see contact information below). If you contact us by email, we may require additional information to verify your identity.

Data Storage and Retention

Information submitted in association with dQuery account registration is retained until you choose to delete your account.

If you communicate with dQuery, such as through email, we may keep copies of those communications indefinitely.

If we inadvertently collect more personal information than intended, we endeavor to delete the extraneous information. When we no longer need to retain information or when deleting information on request, we endeavor to remove all copies. However, please understand that deleted information may continue to persist on backup media.

Responsibility of Users

You agree to indemnify and hold harmless dQuery, its contractors, and its licensors, and their respective directors, officers, employees and agents from and against any and all claims and expenses, including attorneys' fees, arising out of your use of this website, including but not limited to any arising out of your violation of this agreement. You represent and warrant that (i) your use of this website will be in strict accordance with the dQuery Privacy Policy and Terms of Use and with all applicable laws and regulations (including without limitation any local laws or regulations in your country, state, city, or other governmental area, regarding online conduct and acceptable content, and including all applicable laws regarding the transmission of technical data exported from the United States or the country in which you reside) and (ii) your use of our website will not infringe or misappropriate the intellectual property rights of any third party.

Your Account: If you create a dQuery account, you are responsible for maintaining its security, and you are fully responsible for all activities that occur under the account along with any other actions taken in connection with the account. You must not describe or assign keywords to your account in a misleading or unlawful manner, including in a manner intended to trade on the name or reputation of others. dQuery may change any description or keyword that we consider inappropriate or unlawful. You must immediately notify us of any unauthorized uses of your account or any other breaches of security. dQuery will not be liable for any actions or omissions by you, including any damages of any kind incurred as a result of such acts or omissions.

Posting Content: If you post material to the dQuery website, including links to external resources, you are entirely responsible for the substance of, and any harm resulting from, that content. This is the case regardless of whether the content in question constitutes text, graphics, audio data, or computer software. By making content available, you represent and warrant that:

  • the downloading, copying, and use of the content will not infringe the proprietary rights, including but not limited to the copyright, patent, trademark or trade secret rights, of any third party;
  • if your employer has rights to intellectual property you create, you have either (i) received permission from your employer to post or make available the content, including but not limited to any software, or (ii) secured from your employer a waiver as to all rights in or to the content;
  • you have fully complied with any third-party licenses relating to the content, and have done all things necessary to successfully pass through to end users any required terms;
  • the content does not contain or install any viruses, worms, malware, Trojan horses or other harmful or destructive content;
  • the content is not spam, and does not contain unethical or unwanted commercial content designed to drive traffic to third party sites or boost the search engine rankings of third party sites, or to further unlawful acts (such as phishing) or mislead recipients as to the source of the material (such as spoofing);
  • the content is not obscene, libelous or defamatory (more info on what that means), hateful or racially or ethnically objectionable, and does not violate the privacy or publicity rights of any third party; and
  • you have, in the case of content that includes computer code, accurately categorized and/or described the type, nature, uses and effects of the materials, whether requested to do so by us or otherwise.

By submitting content to our website, you grant dQuery a world-wide, royalty-free, irrevocable, non-exclusive license to reproduce, modify, adapt, and publish that content. This is necessary to allow dQuery to display, distribute, and promote content posted to our site. If you delete content, we will use reasonable efforts to remove it from our website, but you acknowledge that caching or references to the content may not be made immediately unavailable.

Without limiting any of these representations, dQuery has the right (though not the obligation) to, at our sole discretion, refuse or remove any content that, in our reasonable opinion, violates any dQuery policy or is in any way harmful or objectionable.

Accessing Content: dQuery has not reviewed and cannot review all of the material posted to our website, and cannot therefore be responsible for that material's content, use, or effects. By operating our website, dQuery does not represent or imply that it endorses the material there posted, or that it believes such material to be accurate, useful, or non-harmful. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content. The dQuery website may contain content that is offensive, indecent, or otherwise objectionable, as well as content containing technical inaccuracies, typographical mistakes, and other errors. The website may also contain material that violates the privacy, publicity, intellectual property, or other proprietary rights of third parties, or of which downloading, copying, or use is subject to additional terms and conditions, stated or unstated. dQuery disclaims any responsibility for any harm resulting from the use or downloading by visitors of content posted to our website by users.

External Content: Similarly, dQuery has not reviewed and cannot review all of the material made available through webpages that link to our website or that may be accessible through links posted to our website. We have no control over such non-dQuery webpages and are not responsible for their contents or their use. By displaying a link to an external website, dQuery does not represent or imply that it endorses such website. You are responsible for taking precautions as necessary to protect yourself and your computer systems from viruses, worms, Trojan horses, and other harmful or destructive content.

Intellectual Property and DMCA Notice

This agreement does not transfer from dQuery to you any dQuery or third party intellectual property, and all right, title, and interest in and to such property shall remain (as between the parties) solely with dQuery. Certain trademarks, service marks, graphics, or logos used in connection with our website may be the trademarks of other third parties. Your use of our website grants you no right or license to reproduce or otherwise use any dQuery or third-party trademarks.

As we ask others to respect our intellectual property rights, so too do we respect the intellectual property rights of others. If you believe that material located on or linked to by our website violates your copyright, you are encouraged to notify dQuery pursuant to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (see contact information below). dQuery will respond to all such notices, including by removing or disabling links to the infringing material, as appropriate or required. In the case of a user who may infringe or repeatedly infringes the copyrights or other intellectual property rights of dQuery or third parties, dQuery may terminate that user's access to and use of our website at our sole discretion.
