Are there special considerations regarding information transmitted through the Internet?

In addition to the general provisions of this Privacy Policy, the following applies to personal information acquired by DELTA through its Web sites.

We receive and store certain types of information when you interact with one of DELTA's web sites. For example, like many web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses our web sites. We may also receive and store any information you enter on our web sites, for example when you sign up for the gift registry, or give to us in any other way.

Our web sites allow you to contact us directly with questions or comments regarding our products, services, web site, warranty registration, surveys, contests and other matters. This process requires you to give certain personal information so that we may address your inquiry. We may receive a confirmation when you open email from us if your computer supports such capabilities. This helps us make our emails more useful and interesting. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers. If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please adjust your customer communication preferences as discussed further below.

In an effort to continually improve our products and services, we may use your personal information to conduct market research and on-line surveys. This may include contacting recent and/or past customers and web site visitors who have provided personal information to DELTA. We may use your information to deliver information that is targeted to your interests and to describe new products, promotions or events.

Our web servers may automatically monitor the number of visitors, the average time spent on the site, the popularity of our web sites, and any programming errors or failures on any of our web sites in order to determine their effectiveness.

DELTA's web sites do not target children and our requests for information are not directed to children. We do not intentionally collect personal information from children. If registration or other information provided through our web sites reveals that the visitor is a child, we will not allow the child to continue to provide personal information and any information provided to that point will be deleted from our records. We do not filter advertisements or other content that children may view through the public portions of our web site.

We may add external links to other related web sites. We try to link to only web sites that maintain the same high regard for privacy on the Internet as we do; however, we are not responsible for the use that such linked sites make of personal information that their visitors provide to them or the content that may be on such linked sites. Additionally, the existence of any external link does not suggest that DELTA endorses the linked company, product or service.  We recommend that you read the privacy policies of each site that you visit.
