In addition, DH Pace may combine your information with information that DH Pace collects from other companies to manage, administer, enhance and personalize the Website, Content and Website advertising.
DH Pace uses “cookie” technology that allows its servers to deposit codes on a user’s computer. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you may not be able to take full advantage of the Website.

DH Pace also employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that helps DH Pace better manage the Website by informing us what Content is effective or popular. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. DH Pace does not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your Personal Information.

Please do not re-post your content at issue yourself. The counter-notice must contain the following information to the Designated Agent listed below.

If a counter-notice is received by the Designated Agent, DH Pace may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that DH Pace may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in ten (10) business days.
