Parkridge Dental respects the privacy and security of its users. Our goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, we sometimes collect information during your visits.
In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for the entire Parkridge Dental site complex, including the personal websites hosted within the Parkridge Dental web domain. Here, you will learn what personally identifiable information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information.
What Information is Collected:
Parkridge Dental collects certain information from and about its users in three ways -- directly from the user, from our Web server logs, and with cookies.
When you sign up for a service we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, and some other personal information. The more accurate information you volunteer, the better we are able to customize your experience.
Server Log Information:
When you visit an Internet Web site, you disclose certain information about yourself, such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time of your visit, and the referring location (e.g., the Site or page that offered a link to a Parkridge Dental page). Parkridge Dental, like many other sites, may record this basic information about visits to its site.
You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although Parkridge Dental tries to protect your personal information, Parkridge Dental cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information.
How and When Information is Used:
We use information in different ways, depending on the type of information.
This information is used for purposes such as personalization and verification.
Web Server Logs:
This information helps us identify which areas of our site are of interest to our visitors. Parkridge Dental may also collect the Internet [Protocol] (IP) addresses of its visitors for the purposes of system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
We use "cookies" to let you use our services more easily and to let us keep track of certain statistical information that helps us improve our site. Cookies allow us to save passwords and preferences for you so that you won't have to re-enter them the next time you visit.
How We Protect Your Information:
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Parkridge Dental does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding your Parkridge Dental usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user.
Your access to some services and content is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Parkridge Dental will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. You should not disclose your user name and password to others. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to sign out of your Parkridge Dental account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Parkridge Dental cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Who Has Access to the Information:
Except as described below, Parkridge Dental will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user's permission. Parkridge Dental may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of Parkridge Dental.
When you are at the Parkridge Dental site and asked for personal information, you share that information with Parkridge Dental alone.
