What information do we collect?
We collect information from you when you register on our Site, place an order, respond to a survey, fill out a form or provide feedback or ask a question. Some of this information may be “personally identifiable information”, which means information that can be associated with you and can be used to identify you.
When ordering or registering on our Site, as applicable, you may be asked to enter your user id and password, name, e-mail address, mailing address, practice information, profession or phone number or other information. You may visit our Site without providing that information, but certain information will be required to place an order or register with the Site. We may also collect information about the browser and/or device that you are using to access our Site (such as the type of browser or device you are using, browser settings, and the device identification number). We also collect the information you provide us regarding your clients to allow us to provide our services. Such information may include information such as prescription information for the production or provision of ophthalmic products (“Client Information“). We ask that you provide any such information to us in unidentifiable form such that we are not able to associate it with an identifiable individual. Where you provide us with Client Information, you must have provided any notices or obtained any consents necessary for the use and disclosure of such Client Information that you ask us to perform.
Device information may or may not be personally identifiable depending upon whether it is linked to the identity of or could be used to identify the user. We may automatically log information, such as a user’s IP address, domain name, browser type, date and time of access, and other log file data. This information may be used to analyze trends or administer our Sites. We may collect statistical or non-personally-identifiable information about our users, such as which pages of our Sites are visited, how long a visitor stays on a particular page, the website from which a user came to our Site, which of our advertisements are clicked, whether email we send is opened, or similar such information. We also may collect aggregate information such as the total number of unique or return visitors to our Site, using our application, or visiting a particular page in a given timeframe. We may use this information to measure the use of our Sites and applications and to improve our content.
We may use Google Analytics, a third party provider of analytics tools, or a similar third party service to analyze information about visits to our Site. You can learn “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps” at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. For information about opting out of Google Analytics please visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
All of your transferred Information will be handled in accordance with the Protected Health Information (HIPPA) Laws. Under HIPAA, protected health information (PIH) is considered to be individually identifiable information relating to the past, present, or future health status of an individual that is created, collected, or transmitted, or maintained by a HIPAA-covered entity in relation to the provision of healthcare.
Some Internet browsers offer what is referred to as “do not track” mechanisms for browser users to automatically signal privacy preferences to websites that they visit. Our site does not recognize these mechanisms, but you can disable cookies using your Internet browser settings. Please consult your browsers’ help function for information on how to disable cookies. Note that if you disable cookies, certain features of our Site may not function properly.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
- To communicate with you and to process transactions that you may request, including the use of Client Information to prepare your order in accordance with your order;
- To personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs);
- To understand how our Site is used and improve our Site (we continually strive to improve our Site offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you);
- To improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs);
- To administer a contest, promotion, survey or another Site feature;
- To send marketing communications and to conduct market research, if you opt to receive further communications from us;
- To notify you of any changes with our Site which may affect you;
- For historical, statistical or business planning purposes;
- To prevent fraud and investigate potential misconduct;
- To provide educational opportunities and training certification; and
- To comply with the law and legal process.
We may use the personally identifiable information, and other information (other than Client Information) to compile statistics which are non-specific to you and do not identify you, and to create other aggregated and anonymous information. We may use and disclose such aggregated information to maintain and improve our Site, or for any other purpose we choose.
What choices do you have about how we use your information?
You have a number of choices regarding our collection and use of information through our Sites:
In cases where you are requested to affirmatively provide information, such as to register or to complete a form, or an application, or a survey on our Site, you may decline to do so. Please understand, however, that in some cases certain information is required to complete an application, form or survey, and if you decline to provide the information requested you may not be able to submit the application or request or to use certain functionalities of our Site(s).
If you would like to restrict the placement of cookies on your device, please see the discussion of cookies above.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to help maintain the safety of your personally identifiable information.
If you use this Site or mobile application, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any user ID and password or other access credentials that you may be provided. You should notify us immediately if any user ID and password or other access credentials we may issue you are compromised. We are not responsible for your failure to do so, or for any delay in shutting down your account after you make a report, and you are responsible for all actions taken under your user ID and password.
While we take steps to help protect the personally identifiable information we collect, no security measures can provide absolute protection. As a result, while we are committed to protecting your personal information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you provide to us.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information except as described in this policy or as required by applicable law.
However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.
Your personally identifiable information may also be collected across websites for learning or training purposes.
Access and correction
If you wish to request that we correct, change or remove any information about you that we may have collected, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help protect against fraudulent requests for access to your personally identifiable information, we may ask you for information to allow us to confirm that the person making the request is you or is authorized to access your personally identifiable information before granting access. For example, we may require you to verify your identity before you access your personally identifiable information.
Please note, if the information we have about you is Client Information, typically, requests to access that information we process for one of our clients must be directed to that client.
Opting out of emails
For communications received via email, utilize the “opt out” functionality embedded within the email if you would like to be removed from our mailing list. Even if you opt out, however, we may continue sending certain communications (e.g., responding to an inquiry from you, communications related to a business transaction).
