Information Collection, Use, and Sharing
We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfill your request, e.g. to ship an order.
Your Access to and Control Over Information
You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number given on our website:
See what data we have about you, if any.
Change/correct any data we have about you.
Have us delete any data we have about you.
Express any concern you have about our use of your data.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.
Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.
We collect information such as the internet protocol (IP) address of visitors to our website, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by users, including from surveys, purchases and/or registrations. We also may collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email.
Advertising on ArtofDentistry.com may be served through a vendor that uses IP addresses for purposes such as controlling ad frequency.
Your Contact Info
With respect to your email address: We generally do not knowingly disclose your e-mail address without your express or implied consent. We may disclose your e-mail address if you serve in a leadership capacity or if you provide your e-mail address in connection with an event or an attendee list. We have instituted opt-out capabilities to help you avoid receiving unwanted commercial email messages from ArtofDentistryDallas.com. We will not knowingly give or sell your email address to any unrelated entity outside the Art of Dentistry, its service providers, subsidiaries and affiliated entities, and state and local dental societies.
The Art of Dentistry may share or license information about you to a third party if, in our sole discretion, we believe that it is:
– reasonably necessary to perform a service or deliver a product or publication
– authorized by you or as set forth in any applicable agreement (whether express or implied) between you and the Art of Dentistry, or with your consent
– permitted under this Privacy Notice
– required by statute or regulation
– of interest to dentists, dental students, members of the dental team, or consumers of dental services, or
– in the good-faith belief that such action is appropriate for reasons of security or legal compliance.
The ArtofDentistryDallas.com also occasionally hires other companies to provide services on our behalf, including, but not limited to, hosting of online resources, processing credit card transactions, answering customer questions about products or services, consulting services, data modeling, printing, and sending postal mail. We will provide those companies with information they need to deliver the service. Third parties may collect information such as your IP address that may indicate your online activities over time or across different websites when you use our website.
Your Rights and Responsibilities
It is important when you wish to exercise your rights that you contact us via any of the means listed in the first section of this Privacy Notice.
If you do not want to receive email, postal mail, telephone calls from us in the future, or if you do not want us to share your contact information in the manner described above, please provide us with your exact name, email and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org. It may take up to four weeks for your opt out to become effective. While we will continue to share information we maintain about you with our service providers, subsidiary and affiliates, and with state and local dental societies, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that any other specific contact information you so identify is removed from lists we share with other organizations.
On request we may provide site visitors with access to information that they submitted via ArtofDentistryDallas.com, such as certain transaction information (e.g., dates on which users made purchases, amounts and types of purchases), communications that the visitor has directed to our site (e.g., emails, user inquiries), and contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number).
On request we may also offer the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in contact information, financial information, unique identifiers, transaction information and certain other data.
If you believe your information is being used improperly, please contact us immediately.
You may provide consent to additional uses and disclosures; for example, in connection with a product or service offered by The Art of Dentistry.
We do not knowingly solicit data online from, or market online to children under the age of 13.
