This Policy outlines the information Copeland Dental Group will collect and how we will use that information. By visiting our site, you are accepting the practices described in this Policy.
Our Privacy Pledge
Our privacy pledge to you is this: subject to the exceptions below, we will not share any private information that personally identifies you (“personal information”) with any third party, unless we have your consent. The only exceptions to this pledge are that we reserve the right to disclose personal information to protect our rights or property, to enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use, and to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate (including as required by operation of law or at the request of government regulators or other law enforcement officials or the courts)(these exceptions referred to herein collectively as the “Privacy Exceptions”). We shall have no duty to notify you of disclosures for these reasons.
What information do we collect, and how can you access it?
How is this information used?
When we use personal information gathered through our site, we will do so pursuant to this Policy. When we share personal information with third parties other than with respect to the Privacy Exceptions, we will require the third parties to enter confidentiality obligations similar to this Policy or other appropriate confidentiality obligations. Copeland Dental Group currently uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) to encrypt and protect the transmission of users’ information and communications over the Internet.
Note, however, that e-mail communications may not be secure or private. If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail, like most non-encrypted Internet e-mail communications, may be accessed and viewed without your knowledge or permission while in transit to us. If you consider the information you are communicating to be confidential, please do not use e-mail. As an alternative, you may contact us by telephone at the numbers provided our on website. If you choose to communicate confidential information to us via e-mail, by pressing the “send” button, you acknowledge that you are transmitting information to us which may be intercepted by third parties and are authorizing us to respond to you by e-mail.
Copeland Dental Group will make reasonable efforts to use the latest security technologies to ensure that the information its users provide is secure. However, we would like to remind its users that technology is no substitute for common sense. For this reason, we strongly encourage users to keep their login names and passwords secret and to change their password when they think they have become compromised. Furthermore, we recommend that our users communicate over secure channels wherever possible, disable the automatic login features found in some browsers, and empty their browser caches regularly.
Copeland Dental Group users may be provided with chat rooms, forums, message boards and/or newsgroups. Please remember that any information disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.
Terms and Conditions of Use
If you choose to visit our website, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the State of Missouri. Our business changes constantly. This Policy and the Terms and Conditions of Use will change also, and use of information that we gather now is subject to the Policy in effect at the time of use.
Copeland Dental Group serves general users of the World Wide Web. We support and comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and other laws and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13, nor do we share such information with third parties.
