Can I use this relay to turn on or off 12V DC electronic equipment?

Yes, as long as the amount of 12V current you are switching on and off don't exceed the maximum current rating of the contacts on the relay.

The dfrobot page has a link to the data sheet for the relay which states that it is rated up to 5A at 24V DC.

EDIT: whoops, it links to the wrong datasheet :P. Here's the correct datasheet.

Do you know what is the maximum current rating of the relay for 12V DC? I am not sure reading the datasheet.
