Sensitive and private data exchange between the Site and its Users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

Due to the nature of the internet, we implement as many safeguards as possible to prevent security breaches. In case of a breach, you will be notified within 48 hours of the time and severity of the security breach.


Personal information of non-purchasers that submit their personal data to our business will be kept in our customer database as long as it is actively being utilized by Dorner for business or analytic purposes. After a user unsubscribes, requests removal from the database or the information is no longer necessary to keep, it will be deleted from our database.


Personal information of customers who purchase from Dorner, or who have purchased from Dorner in the past will be kept in our database until explicitly asked to remove any type of data.
