COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION
Optident collects and processes personal data volunteered by the visitor in registering or participating in surveys: your full name, job title, company, postal address, email address, telephone number, function, account number and order information. Optident uses this personal data to administer its business activities, improve its Web site, provide customer service, and to make available other products and services to its customers and prospective customers.
Optident shall not disclose personal data to unaffiliated third parties for their independent use, unless pursuant to confidentiality agreements. Optident may share your personal data with its suppliers, distributors, agents or contractors in connection with services they perform for Optident or pursuant to agreements with its suppliers. To the extent required or permitted by law, Optident may also collect, use and disclose personal data in connection with security related or law enforcement investigations or in the course of cooperating with authorities or complying with legal requirements.
Optident may use your personal data for marketing purposes, such as information about new products and services or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such direct marketing information, you may “opt out” by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and requesting to ‘opt out’ of such correspondence.
In addition to the personal data you volunteer, our Web server automatically collects such information as the domain name of the Web site providing you with Internet access, the Internet protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet, your browser type and version, operating system and platform, the average time spent on our Web site, pages viewed, information searched for, access times and other relevant statistics. Optident uses this information in order to ensure that unauthorised users do not access the information on its Web site, and in the aggregate to measure the use of its Web site and to administer and improve it.
Most browsers used by visitors have options that allow the visitor to control whether the browser will accept cookies, reject cookies, or notify the visitor each time a cookie is sent, but setting a browser to reject cookies will prevent access to our Web site. In addition, you can delete your Optident cookies from your browser program at any time.
Optident takes commercially reasonable precautions to keep all information obtained from our online visitors secure against unauthorised access and use and Optident periodically reviews its security measures. Although there is no way that any Web site can absolutely guarantee the security of your personal data, Optident is committed to employing reasonable security measures and to regularly reviewing its security practices. As noted in the Terms and Conditions, however, you are responsible for keeping your login information and passwords confidential. Optident uses VeriSign for its Web sites’ security certificates. Please be aware that these protection tools do not protect information that is not collected through Optident Web site, such as information provided by e-mail.
TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
Please note that in proceeding to the purchase order, your personal data will be transferred to Optident’s parent company in the United States, Henry Schein, Inc. A data transfer agreement based on an EU model contract has been entered into by Optident and Henry Schein, Inc for providing adequate protection for transfers of personal data to the United States.
