It is optional for the user/subscriber to provide demographic information (such as country, or zip code), but encouraged so that we can provide a more personalized and customized experience on the DIAL site.

Cookies
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user.

If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site.
