We Take Your Privacy Seriously
Here are the bullet points:
Like most website operators, The Dental Care Center collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Dental Care Center’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Dental Care Center’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Dental Care Center may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Dental Care Center also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on WordPress.com blogs. The Dental Care Center only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Dental Care Center’s websites choose to interact with The Dental Care Center in ways that require The Dental Care Center to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Dental Care Center gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for our newsletter at mycarolinadentist.com to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Dental Care Center – by purchasing a monthly local search marketing plan, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Dental Care Center collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Dental Care Center. The Dental Care Center does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
The Dental Care Center may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. The Dental Care Center may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Dental Care Center does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Dental Care Center discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Dental Care Center’s behalf or to provide services available at The Dental Care Center’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Dental Care Center’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Dental Care Center will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Dental Care Center discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Dental Care Center believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Dental Care Center, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an The Dental Care Center website and have supplied your email address, The Dental Care Center may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Dental Care Center and our products. We primarily use our blog or social media channels to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Dental Care Center takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
