Information Collected on the DWEN Site
DWEN collects information from users and allows users to share information and post content at several different points on Site (collectively, “Interactive Features”):

  • Registration

In order to use the DWEN Site, you must first complete the registration form. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We may use this information to contact you about services on our site for which you have expressed interest. We do require some basic information about your business like location of headquarters, employee size and industry so that members can connect based on those attributes, and we can ensure you have a good user experience. If you have previously provided information through the DWEN member intake form, and have opted in to have your account created, we uploaded your information for you.

  • Member Information

Other users of the DWEN Site may view information you provide about yourself and your organization. At any time, you may choose to go into invisible mode so other users will not see your profile. You have the option to deactivate your profile at any time and have your data removed from our systems. DWEN does not store this information after you remove it. In order to enable it again you must re-enter the information.

  • Discussion Forums

During your use of the Site, you may wish to participate in our discussion forums by asking questions or responding to other users’ questions.
