Personal Information and Choice

"Personal information" is any information concerning a natural person that can be used to identify that person (e.g., an individual's name, e-mail address, street address, and phone number). A domain name or Internet Protocol address is not considered personal information.

Personal information is not collected through this website unless you provide that information voluntarily by sending an email to DASNY through this website or by initiating any other online transaction, such as completing an online form, or requesting information.

Note, if you choose not to communicate through this website, your ability to receive specific services, products, or information through this website may be limited, however, it will not prevent you from requesting services, information, or products from DASNY by other means.

Currently, DASNY does not knowingly collect personal information from children or create profiles of children through this website. Users are cautioned, however, that the collection of personal information provided by any individual in an email will be treated the same as information given by an adult, and may, if not protected by federal or State law, be subject to public access. DASNY encourages parents and teachers to be involved in children's internet activities and to guide them whenever they are asked to provide personal information online.

Disclosure of Information Collected Through This Website

The collection of information through this website and the disclosure of that information are subject to the provisions of the Internet Security and Privacy Act and the Personal Privacy Protection Law. DASNY will only collect personal information through this website or disclose personal information collected through this website if the user has consented to the collection or disclosure of such personal information. The voluntary disclosure of personal information to DASNY by the user, whether solicited or unsolicited, constitutes the user’s consent to the collection and disclosure of the information by DASNY for the purposes for which the user disclosed the information to DASNY, as was reasonably ascertainable from the nature and terms of the disclosure.

Employees of DASNY are prohibited from disclosing without your consent any personal information you provide, except as provided or required by court order or other law, including the Freedom of Information Law, which requires DASNY to make certain information available to the public upon request. However, pursuant to the Internet Security and Privacy Act, DASNY may collect or disclose personal information without user consent if the collection or disclosure is: 1) necessary to perform the statutory duties of DASNY; (2) necessary for DASNY to operate a program authorized by law; (3)  authorized by state or federal statute or regulation; 4) made pursuant to a court order or by law; 5) made for the purpose of validating the identity of the user; or 6) to be used solely for statistical purposes  in a form that cannot be used to identify any particular person.


DASNY is strongly committed to protecting personal information collected through this website against unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Consequently, DASNY limits employee access to personal information from this website to only those employees who need access to perform a specific job. Employees who have access to this information are required to follow appropriate procedures in connection with any disclosures of personal information.

In addition, DASNY has implemented procedures to safeguard the integrity of its information technology assets including, but not limited to, authentication, monitoring, auditing, and encryption. These security measures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and day-to-day operations of this website as part of our continuing commitment to the security of electronic content as well as the electronic transmission of information.
