Privacy Statement

DC By the Book is committed to protecting the privacy of all visitors to our Website through the following practices.


Collection and Use of Online Information
When you visit our Website, certain data, such as your computer’s unique Internet protocol (IP) address, will be automatically collected and sent to the servers that support our Website system to help us provide better service and a more effective Website. In addition, as part of these efforts, sections of this site may place a small text file (typically only a few bytes) on your hard drive to allow us to identify your computer. We will not attempt to read any additional information on your hard drive, and we do not combine collected information with other personal information to determine your identity or your e-mail address.


Secure Transmissions
Please be assured that this site is equipped with security measures to protect the information you provide us.


Protection of Personal Information
Your individual identifying information will not be shared, sold, or transferred to any third party without your prior consent, or unless it is required by law.
