Information We Share with Third Parties

DSTC collects data that is critical to the function of our Services and delivering the best experience possible. As a general rule, we will not share or otherwise disclose any of your personally identifiable information except when we have your permission or under special circumstances, such as we believe in good faith that the law requires it or under the following circumstances: 1) Under a confidentiality agreement, we may match user information with third-party data; 2) We may disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, we have customers in 50 states and 11 countries) in order to describe our Services to prospective partners, advertisers, and other third parties; and 3) As required by law.

Sharing by You

You will have the ability to share your User Content with another user. If you share your User Content with anyone, we shall have no liability to you (or anyone with whom you share your User Content).

Accessing Your Personal Information

You may edit your personal account information with DSTC at any time by using your unique user name and password and accessing your personal account page.

You have the right to request the restriction of certain uses and disclosures of personally identifiable information. You can contact us in order to update or correct your personally identifiable information. You may change your communications preferences concerning what you receive from us. You can request the deletion of personally identifiable information about you on our systems, but only subject to the following condition: you must cancel your DSTC membership (if applicable) and delete your entire account.

In order to request personal information or account changes, you will be asked to verify your identity.

Please be aware that it is not possible to remove every record of the information you have provided to us from all of our systems.

After receiving your request, all personal information stored in databases we actively own and control will be updated, corrected, or deleted, as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably and technically possible.

Protecting Your Information

Your personal account information with DSTC is password protected so that you and only you have access to this personal information and the User Content therein. We strongly advise that you do not disclose your unique user name or password to anyone. Be sure to sign out of your account and close your browser window when you have finished using our Services after each session. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information or User Content.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online Services, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our commercially reasonable effort to ensure its security on our systems.


We may use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or instructions provided in any email we send.

For example, DSTC sends welcome e-mail after you create an account, when you signup for our newsletter, when you enter a contest on our website, and when you purchase any product on our website. We also may send other e-mail related to the website and your account, such as product announcements, changes in your account, and changes to our company policies and Services. We give you the option to unsubscribe from these emails in every email we send you.

Outside Service Providers & Third-Parties

We may employ third party companies, outside service contractors, vendors, and individuals to facilitate our Services, to provide the Services on our behalf, to perform Services-related services or to assist us in analyzing how our Services are used. For example, these services may include our website hosting, credit card processing (Stripe and PayPal), and our mailing list (Infusionsoft and ConstantContact).

These third parties have access to your Personal Information only to perform specific tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use your information for any other purpose. DSTC requires that these third parties agree to protect the privacy of your personal information consistent with this Privacy Policy and not use or disclose your personal information for any purpose other than providing the products or services as contracted or as required by law.

Compliance With Laws

DSTC may disclose your information if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or another valid legal process. We may disclose personal information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe it is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating our Terms of Service, uncover fraud, or to protect the safety or security of our users, website, or the general public.

Business Transaction

If DSTC is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, your Personal Information may be transferred as a business asset. In such cases, we will provide notice before your Personal Information is transferred or becomes subject to a different Privacy Policy.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, and we strive to implement and maintain reasonable, commercially acceptable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of the information we store, in order to protect it from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.

However, please be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we are unable to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information we have collected from you.

International Transfer

Your information, including Personal Information, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.

If you are located outside United States and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the information, including Personal Information, to United States and process it there.

Your consent to this Privacy Policy followed by your submission of such information represents your agreement to that transfer.

DSTC Minors Notice

DSTC will not solicit and does not intend to collect personal information from people under eighteen (18) years of age.

California Residents

If you live in the State of California, under the California Civil Code, you have the right to request that companies who conduct business in California provide you with a list of all third parties to which the company has disclosed Personal Information during the preceding year for direct marketing purposes.

Alternatively, the law provides that if a company has a Privacy Policy that gives either an opt-out (often referred to as “unsubscribe”) or opt-in choice for use of your Personal Information by third parties (such as advertisers or affiliated companies) for marketing purposes, that the company may instead provide you with information on how to exercise your disclosure choice options.

This web site qualifies for the alternative option; it has a comprehensive Privacy Policy and provides you with details on how you may either opt-out or opt-in to the use of your Personal Information by third parties for direct marketing purposes. Therefore, we are not required to maintain or disclose a list of the third parties that received your Personal Information for marketing purposes during the preceding year.

If you are a California resident and want to request information about how to exercise your third party disclosure choices, you must send a request to the following address with a preference on how our response to your request should be sent (email or postal mail). Please send an email to the Privacy Administrator at, or you may contact us via regular mail at:
