Your SMILE is our SMILE
What Information Do We Collect?
Upon visiting this web site you may provide us with two types of information: personal information you knowingly choose to disclose that is collected on an individual basis and Web site use information collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse our Web site. This is typically what happens as you browse websites and is by no means out of the ordinary.
1. Personal Information You Choose to Provide
When you register for any of our products, services or newsletters you will provide us information about yourself. Such information may consist of your Name, Mailing address, Email address, billing address, Business and home phone number.
Should you choose to correspond with us through email, we may retain the content of your email messages together with your email address and our responses. We provide the same protections for these electronic communications that we employ in the maintenance of information received by mail and telephone as standard practise.
2. Web Site Use Information
In very similar ways to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilises a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server log files to collect information about how our Web site is used. Information gathered through cookies and Web server logs might include the date and the time you and others visit our website, the pages viewed, time spent at our Web site, and the Web sites visited just before and just after our Web site was viewed.
How Do We Use the Information That You Provide to Us?
Essentially, we use personal information for purposes of administering our business activities, providing our products and services you request, possible processing of your payment, our marketing and promotional efforts and improve our content and service offerings, and customize our site’s content, layout, services and for other legal determinations.
Such information may be shared with others on an aggregate basis. Personally identifiable information or business information will under no circumstances be shared with any third party except as required by lawful means.
On very odd occasions, we may use the information we collect to notify you about important changes to our Website, new services, and special offers we think you will find valuable. You may inform us at any time if you do not wish to receive these offers by emailing us at the link provided on the newsletter or clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email sent to you.
What Are Cookies?
A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you view a Web site of any nature, that web site’s computer asks your computer for approval to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. It’s standard for web browsers to accept cookies. Nevertheless, if you prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your web browser to decline cookies thus deliver no information.
Understanding how we use IP Addresses
An IP addresses is used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web server as part of demographic and profile data known as “traffic data” so that data (such as the Web pages you request) can be sent to you. This process is standard and occurs every second of every day online.
