Privacy Policy


We are com­mit­ted to our users’ rights to pri­va­cy. We promise to share trans­par­ent­ly all aspects of how the Dojo Update web­site works in regards to pri­va­cy, terms, and per­son­al data, and we are in full sup­port of efforts to ensure your pro­tec­tion online.

The fol­low­ing is a col­lec­tion of infor­ma­tion and resources to help answer any ques­tions you have about your expe­ri­ence with We’re grate­ful for your inter­est and proud to have you as a part of our dojo fam­i­ly!

GDPR compliance

The EU’s Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tions (GDPR) take effect May 25, and we are ful­ly behind the spir­it of these reg­u­la­tions for a safe and secure Inter­net. We aspire to embrace pri­va­cy by design and, when­ev­er pos­si­ble, to not col­lect and store per­son­al­ly-iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion.

Our Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy con­tains men­tions of the few instances where per­son­al­ly-iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion is required. Typ­i­cal­ly this will include an email address and/or phone num­ber you pro­vide through an infor­ma­tion request form as a way for us to con­tact you.

Over­all, we aim for pri­va­cy by default: if data col­lec­tion is not inte­gral to the way our prod­uct works, then we won’t col­lect it. This approach has felt very much in line with the spir­it of GDPR.

At any time, you may request your infor­ma­tion to be export­ed and sent to you for review, and we prompt­ly hon­or any requests by you to have your infor­ma­tion delet­ed and for­got­ten.

Here is our progress so far on GDPR com­pli­ance ahead of the May 25, 2018, dead­line:

Who we are

Personal data we may collect and why we collect it

For the pur­pose of this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, “Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion” means any infor­ma­tion relat­ing to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fi­able indi­vid­ual. We obtain Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion relat­ing to you from var­i­ous sources described below.
Where applic­a­ble, we indi­cate whether and why you must pro­vide us with your Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion, as well as the con­se­quences of fail­ing to do so. If you do not pro­vide Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion when request­ed, you may not be able to ben­e­fit from if that infor­ma­tion is nec­es­sary to pro­vide you with the ser­vice or if we are legal­ly required to col­lect it.

We keep con­tact form sub­mis­sions for up to three years for cus­tomer ser­vice pur­pos­es, but do not use the infor­ma­tion sub­mit­ted through them for mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es.

Com­ments. When vis­i­tors leave com­ments on we col­lect the data shown in the com­ments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and brows­er user agent string to help spam detec­tion.

Like many web­sites, we also use “cook­ie” tech­nol­o­gy to col­lect addi­tion­al web­site usage data and to improve A cook­ie is a small data file that we trans­fer to your computer’s hard disk. A ses­sion cook­ie enables cer­tain fea­tures of and our ser­vice and is delet­ed from your com­put­er when you dis­con­nect from or leave A per­sis­tent cook­ie remains after you close your brows­er and may be used by your brows­er on sub­se­quent vis­its to Per­sis­tent cook­ies can be removed by fol­low­ing your web brows­er help file direc­tions.

Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cook­ies from, you may not be able to uti­lize the fea­tures of the Ser­vice to their fullest poten­tial.

These oth­er web­sites may place their own cook­ies or oth­er files on your com­put­er, col­lect data or solic­it Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion from you. Oth­er sites fol­low dif­fer­ent rules regard­ing the use or dis­clo­sure of the Per­son­al Infor­ma­tion you sub­mit to them.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a com­ment, the com­ment and its meta­da­ta are retained indef­i­nite­ly. This is so we can rec­og­nize and approve any fol­low-up com­ments auto­mat­i­cal­ly instead of hold­ing them in a mod­er­a­tion queue.

All users can see, edit, or delete their per­son­al infor­ma­tion at any time (except they can­not change their user­name). Web­site admin­is­tra­tors can also see and edit that infor­ma­tion.
