SHARING OF INFORMATION

As further described below, we will only share certain personal information with:

  • our partners;
  • third party service providers and vendors;
  • in connection with a sale, merger, acquisition or corporate reorganization;
  • authorized users within your organization; and
  • for legal reasons.

SHARING WITH PARTNERS

When we share personal information with certain third-party partners, including marketing and advertising partners, that information includes your name, email address and other information enabling partners to:

  • assist you in using our products and services,
  • contact you with offers, services or products that may be of interest to you, and
  • provide you with their products or services.

If you are located in a jurisdiction where such sharing requires your permission, we will only do so with your consent. Please note that if you access our services through a tool that hides your location, such as through a virtual private network, you may not receive our request for permission because we were not able to identify you as being located in a jurisdiction where your permission is required.

Further, our partners are prohibited from using your contact information for any purpose beyond those set forth above without your consent. We will not provide our partners with your credit card information. Further information about certain partners we share personal information with is available below in the "List Of Third Party Data Controllers And Subprocessors" section.

In the event we collect information from you in connection with an offer that is jointly presented by us and a partner, we will let you know who is collecting the information and whose privacy policy applies, as well as any options you may have regarding use of your information.

SHARING WITH THIRD PARTY SERVICE PROVIDERS AND VENDORS

Occasionally, we enter into contracts with carefully selected third parties so that they can assist us in servicing you (for example, providing you with customer service, fraud detection and deterrence or access to advertising assets and providing us with information technology and storage services) or to assist us in our own marketing and advertising activities (including providing us with analytic information and search engine optimization services). Additional information about certain third-party service providers we share personal information with is available in the "List Of Third Party Data Controllers And Subprocessors" section. Our contracts with such third parties prohibit them from using any of your personal information for any purpose beyond the purpose for which it was shared.

If you purchase a product or service from a third party through one of our brands, we will pass your personal information to such third party in order for them to fulfill your order.

We also share non-personal information with certain third parties, including the media, industry observers, marketing and advertising partners, vendors, customers, potential customers or partners. For example, we disclose mobile search trends, email open rates by industry, campaign best practices or the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, our websites or evaluated or purchased our products and services.

DO WE DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT TO OUTSIDE PARTIES? 

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information unless we provide you with advance notice, except as described below. The term "outside parties" does not include Social Dental Network Marketing. It also does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety.

However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

THIRD PARTY LINKS

In an attempt to provide you with increased value, we may include third party links on our site. These linked sites have separate and independent privacy policies.

SECURITY

The transmission of information via the internet, email or text message is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted through the Services or over email; any transmission is at your own risk.

 Once we have received your information, we will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to safeguard your personal information against loss, theft and unauthorized use, access or modification.

When we collect financial account information, such as credit card numbers, we protect its transmission through the use of encryption such as the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol.

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information. Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. When you place orders or access your personal information, we offer the use of a secure server. All sensitive/credit information you supply is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and then encrypted into our databases to be only accessed as stated above.

 TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES AND ONLINE ADVERTISING

We use cookies, web beacons, pixels, tags, scripts and other similar technologies in the course of our business. Information about the technologies we use, why we use them (for example, in connection with online advertising), and how you can control them can be found in our Cookie Policy below. 

LOG FILES

Like many other Web sites, we make use of log files. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol ( IP ) addresses, type of browser, Internet Service Provider ( ISP ), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user’s movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

COOKIE POLICY

Effective May 21, 2018

This Cookie Policy describes how and why Social Dental Network and our subsidiaries (“we,” “us” or “Social Dental Network”) use cookies, web beacons, pixels, tags, scripts and other similar technologies in the course of our business, including through websites and apps that link to this Cookie Policy. It also explains your rights to control our use of these tracking technologies.  

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small data files placed on your computer or other internet-enabled device that enable our features and functionality. They allow us to record information when you visit or interact with our websites, products and services (collectively, our “Websites”). Other tracking technologies, such as web beacons and pixels work similarly to cookies, placing small data files on your device that monitor your Website activity.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

We use cookies and other tracking technologies to make our websites easier to use and to better tailor them to your interests and needs. We use the information we obtain from cookies and other tracking technologies to carry out profiling activities in order to learn more about you and offer you tailored advertising based on your behavior on our websites. We also use these technologies to compile anonymous, aggregated information that allow us to better understand our customers and visitors.

 WHAT KINDS OF COOKIES AND TRACKING TECHNOLOGIES DO WE USE?

PERSISTENT AND SESSION COOKIES

We use two categories of cookies: Persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that help us recognize you. They are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences and actions across multiple sites and on multiple visits. Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session, allowing us to link your actions during a particular browsing session.

THIRD PARTY COOKIES

In addition to the first party cookies set by us, we also use third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by others, enabling the third party’s features or functionalities to be provided through the Website you are using. The third party setting these cookies can recognize your device both when it visits our Website and when it visits certain other websites or services. For example, our paid endorsers, or affiliates, may use third-party cookies to identify you as a referral so they can be compensated if you sign up for services from us as a result of visiting one of our paid endorsers. The service providers of third-party cookies have their own privacy policies and may use their cookies to target advertising to you.

CROSS-DEVICE TRACKING

We perform cross-device tracking which allows us to provide more relevant advertising to you on multiple devices. We do this by identifying browsing activity on your smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and other devices connected to the same IP address or logged into the same account to better understand the products and services that might be of interest to you.

LOCAL STORAGE OBJECTS

We also use Local Storage Objects (LSOs), such as HTML5, to, among other things, optimize screen presentation, video and other preference information.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

We use Google Analytics which is a web analytics tool that helps us understand how users engage with our Websites. Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track user interactions as in our case, where they are used to collect information about how users use our Website. This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve our Websites. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors. 

WE USE GOOGLE ADWORDS REMARKETING 

This website uses the Google AdWords remarketing service to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to our site. It could mean that we advertise to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on our site, for example using the contact form to make an enquiry. This could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve ads based on someone’s past visits to the geisheker.com website. Of course, any data collected will be used in accordance with our own privacy policy and Google’s privacy policy.

You can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Preferences page, and if you want to you can opt out of interest-based advertising entirely by cookie settings or permanently using a browser plugin.

WHY DO WE USE COOKIES?

We generally use cookies that are necessary or essential to the functioning of our websites, cookies that help us improve the performance or customize the functionality of our websites, and cookies that help us serve you relevant advertisements. The types of cookies described below may be set by us or by a third party service provider assisting us in performing the below functions. Specifically, we use cookies for the following reasons:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies and tracking technologies let you navigate our websites and use essential features, including secure areas and shopping baskets. Without these technologies, we are unable to deliver core functionality of our websites, products and services to you.
  • Performance: These cookies and tracking technologies help us understand how customers and visitors interact with our websites. They provide us with information about areas of our website visited, time spent on our websites and any error messages you receive, allowing us to improve the performance of our websites. They do not collect any information that could identify you.
  • Functional: These cookies and tracking technologies are used to provide certain services or to remember settings that will improve your visit, but are not essential to your use of our websites. They may include personal information that you have disclosed to us.
  • Targeting or Advertising: These cookies and tracking technologies allow us to deliver content, including advertisements, relevant to your specific interests. This content may be delivered in our websites or on third party websites or services. They allow us to understand and improve the relevancy of our advertisements. They may track personal information, including your IP address.
  • Social Media Cookies: These cookies are set by third parties, including Facebook and Twitter, and allow you to share what you’ve been doing on our websites on social media.

HOW CAN I CONTROL COOKIES?

If you visit our websites from Europe, only strictly necessary cookies and other tracking technologies will be used on our websites by default. Other cookies and tracking technologies will only be used when you consent by visiting each website’s Cookie Management Center at http://preferences-mgr.truste.com/, where available.

Where you visit our website from outside Europe, the cookies and similar tracking technologies mentioned above will be used by default

Internet browsers allow you to change your cookie settings via the “options’ or “preferences” menu in your browser. Please note that if you set your browser to refuse or block all cookies, certain features or functionalities of our websites will be limited or unavailable to you.

Some internet browsers include the ability to transmit “do not track” signals. Because no industry standard has yet been developed with respect to “do not track,” our websites do not currently process or respond to such “do not track” signals.

Where you request correction, please explain in detail why you believe the personal information we hold about you to be inaccurate or incomplete so that we can assess whether a correction is required.

THIRD PARTY LINKS AND INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE BY OUR USERS

Some of our Services provide links to other websites. Because we do not control the information policies or practices of these third-party sites, you should review their privacy policies to learn about how they collect and use personal information.

These services will authenticate your identity and provide you with the option to share certain personal information with us, such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign up form. 

For example, if you take advantage of certain of our social media features, such as the Facebook Like button, and widgets, such as the “Share This” button or interactive mini-programs that run on our site, the applicable social networking sites may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our websites, and may set a cookie to enable it to function properly.

If a parent or guardian becomes aware that his or her child has provided us with personal information without such parent or guardian’s consent, he or she should contact us. If we become aware that a child under 18 has provided us with personal information, we will delete such information from our files.

DATA TRANSFER
