DWK follows these principles in collecting and managing personal information:
DWK collects personal information on individuals only as allowed by law and limits the collection of personal information to what is relevant and necessary to accomplish the lawful purpose of DWK. Personal information, as defined in the Information Practices Act, is information that identifies or describes an individual including, but not limited to, name, social security number, physical description, home address, home telephone number, education, financial matters and medical or employment history.
DWK does not collect home, business, or e-mail addresses, or account information from persons who simply browse our Internet website. The information that DWK automatically collects includes the domain name or Internet Protocol address that relates to the machine used to access DWK’s website, the type of browser and operating system used, the date and time when the website is visited, web pages displayed, and any forms that are uploaded.
DWK may use session cookies in some areas of this website to improve the overall usability of the site. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer, often without your knowledge, while visiting certain sites on the Internet used to identify your computer.

There also are commercial programs available to help you manage cookies. Before taking such steps, you should be aware that some websites may not work properly if you choose to block the placement of cookies on your computer. You will need to decide whether enabling cookies outweigh privacy concerns.
DWK makes the best effort in each instance to tell people who provide personal information to DWK the purpose for which the information is collected. At the time of collection, DWK also strives to tell persons who are asked to provide personal information:
- About the specific usage that DWK will make of that information.
- DWK will provide information on the authority under which the request is made.
- The possible disclosures DWK is obligated to make to other government agencies and to the public.
DWK uses personal information only for the specified purposes for which the information was collected, or purposes consistent with those purposes, unless DWK receives the consent of the subject of the information, or unless authorized by law or regulation. DWK does not disclose any personal information, does not make personal information available, and does not sell any electronically collected personal information, to any third-party vendor. DWK allows individuals who provide personal information to review the information and contest its accuracy or completeness.
DWK uses information security safeguards and takes reasonable precautions to protect the personal information on individuals collected or maintained by DWK against loss, unauthorized access, use, modification, or disclosure. DWK has security measures in place to protect against loss, unauthorized access, use, modification, or disclosure of the information under its control. Information that is physically located within DWK is protected by various security measures which may include the following: on our website, DWK uses encryption software to protect the security of individuals’ personal information during transmission of such information throughout the website. Personal information is stored in secure locations. DWK staff are trained on procedures for the management and release of personal information, and access to personal information is limited to those staff whose work requires it.
