Cookies. “Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers we transfer to your device’s hard drive for tracking purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Service, while others are used to enable and optimize certain Service functions, support the security and performance of the Service, or allow us to track activity and usage data within our Service.
Pixel Tags. Pixel tags (sometime called web beacons or clear GIFs) are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. While cookies are stored locally on your device, pixel tags are embedded invisibly within web pages and online content. We may use these, in connection with our Service to, among other things, track the activities of users, and help us manage content and compile usage statistics. We may also use these in our emails to let us know when they have been opened or forwarded, so we can track response rates and gauge the effectiveness of our communications.
We allow you to manage your preferences and privacy choices, as described below:
The Website may contain links or references to other websites outside of our control. Please be aware that this Policy does not apply to these websites. The Company encourages you to read the privacy statements and terms and conditions of linked or referenced websites you enter. These third-party websites may send their own cookies and other tracking devices to you, log your IP address, and otherwise collect data regarding your use of the Website or solicit Personal Information. The company does not control and is not responsible for what third parties do in connection with their websites, or how they handle your Personal Information. Please exercise caution and consult the privacy policies posted on each third-party website for further information.
Our Services are intended for users who are 13 years or older. We do not knowingly collect information from children under 13 years old. If you are a parent or legal guardian and think your child under 13 has given us information, you can call us at (888) 530-1066 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn that we have collected the information of a child under 13, we will delete such information from our records.
We retain your Personal Information for as long as needed, or permitted, based on the reason why we obtained it (consistent with applicable law). When deciding how long to keep your information, we consider whether we are subject to any legal obligations (e.g., any laws that require us to keep records for a certain period of time before we can delete them) or whether we have taken any legal positions (e.g., issued any legal holds or otherwise need to preserve the information). From time to time, we may also deidentify your Personal Information, retain it and use it in compliance with applicable laws.
The laws and regulations in different countries impose requirements on the Internet and data protection. The servers that make the Website available worldwide are located in the USA. All matters relating to the Website are governed by the laws of the State of California. Please note that any information you provide will be transferred directly to the USA, and by using the Website or providing us your Personal Information, you authorize this transfer.
We will continue to review and revise our privacy practices and policies as our technology, services, and use of data evolves. We will not retroactively use or share data in a manner that is materially different from this policy without first providing you notice. This Notice is reviewed and updated annually and we will use reasonable means to inform you of any changes.
If you are a California resident, you may have rights to the information we collect that identifies, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with you (“Personal Information”).
We do not sell dental products or provide services directly to patients. Instead, we receive patient data directly from dental providers in the course of providing our products and services to the dental providers. To the extent you are a dental patient and we received your information from your dental provider, you do not currently have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CCPA”). Your dental provider may be required to provide you certain privacy rights under federal and state law. If you would like a copy of your privacy rights under federal and state law, please contact your dental provider directly.
To the extent you are a resident of California who is not a dental patient, you may have the following rights:
Right to Request More Information
You may have the right to request information about how we have processed your Personal Information, including:
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information we collected about you. Not all requests to delete can be fulfilled. If we are unable to comply with your request, we will provide a response explaining why your data cannot be deleted.
Right to Correct
You have the right to request that we correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information.
Right to Opt-Out of Sales/Sharing
California residents may have the right to opt-out of “sales” or “sharing” of their Personal Information under the CCPA. CCPA defines a “sale” as disclosing or making Personal Information available to a third-party in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration. CCPA also defines “sharing” as disclosing or making available Personal Information to a third party for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising. While we do not disclose Personal Information to third parties in exchange for monetary compensation, we may “sell” or “share” (as defined by the CCPA) Personal Information, such as identifiers and internet and electronic network activity information to third-party ad networks. We do so in order to improve and evaluate our advertising campaigns and better reach customers and prospective customers with more relevant ads and content.
To opt out of the sharing or sale of Personal Information collected through advertising cookies, please click on the “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” Link on the bottom of the website homepage. Please note that submitting an opt out request will only opt you out of disclosures that are considered “sales” or “sharing” under the CCPA, but it will not opt out of other disclosures, such as to our service providers.
You may also opt-out of “sales” and “sharing” of your Personal Information through the use of an opt-out preference signal. If our website detects that your browser or device is transmitting an opt-out preference signal, such as the “global privacy control” or “GPC” signal, we will opt that browser or device out of cookies on our website that result in a “sale” or “sharing” of your Personal Information. Please note, if you come to our website from a different device or a different browser on the same device, you will need to opt out, or use an opt-out preference signal, for that browser and/or device as well.
We do not sell or share sensitive Personal Information, nor do we sell or share any Personal Information about individuals who we know are under sixteen (16) years old. We do not provide your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
Right to Limit the Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information
We do not use or disclose sensitive Personal Information for any purpose that would require us to provide you with a right to limit the use of your sensitive Personal Information under the CCPA.
Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the rights described in this section.
Before we can respond to your request, we must first verify your identity using your Personal Information. If we are unable to verify your identity after a good faith attempt, we may deny the request and, if so, will explain the basis for the denial.
Response Timing and Format
We will endeavor to respond to your request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days total), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If we cannot respond to your request, either fully or partially, we will also explain our reasons. For data access requests, we will deliver the data in a readily, useable format. Where permitted under the CCPA, we may charge you a reasonable fee to process your request.
We will continue to review and revise our privacy practices and policies as our technology, services, and use of data evolves. We will not retroactively use or share data in a manner that is materially different from this policy without first providing you notice. This Notice is reviewed and updated annually, and we will use reasonable means to inform you of any changes. The effective date of this Policy is the Last Updated date above.
