Thank you for visiting The Online Dentist. Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice explaining our policy within this area. If you do not agree to the terms in this Policy, we kindly ask you to leave the site.
Collection of data
The Online Dentist’s site provides a number of services such as news, dental health advice articles, dental health advice videos, school resources, children’s educational resources, children’s activities, etc.
For some services, The Online Dentist may require your e-mail address or other personal information such as your name, age, gender, health information and various habits. Providing us with this personal and identifiable information is, of course, optional. However, in some cases it may not be possible for us to provide the service in question without receiving specific information from you.
Disclosure of data
The Online Dentist will use the information received to provide The Online Dentist’s services and to improve the content of the site. In order to provide the services, your personal data may in some situations be seen by third parties, such as doctors or operations and maintenance contractors repairing and maintaining The Online Dentist’s technical systems.
The Online Dentist may further use the aggregate information to study statistical results and produce summary reports. Such reports may be shared with The Online Dentist’s partners and advertisers, but the reports will not disclose personally identifiable information.
Except from that stated above, The Online Dentist will not disclose any of your personally identifiable information without your permission except under special circumstances, for instance if The Online Dentist in good faith believes that the law requires disclosure.
Any information collected by The Online Dentist will be treated confidentially.
Correcting/Updating/Storing Personal Information
The Online Dentist stores information only as long as it is necessary. If your personal information changes or you no longer want to use one of our services to which you have subscribed, we will provide a way to correct, update, delete or remove your personal data. This can usually be done by you at the member information page or by e-mailing our site administrator.
Information from our discussion forums or comments is stored in archives since it is considered useful to future users.
The Online Dentist’s Security Policy
When you provide The Online Dentist with personal information, that information may be sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside of the country where you entered the information. Whenever The Online Dentist handles personal information, regardless of where this occurs, The Online Dentist takes every precaution to ensure that your information is treated securely, for instance by encrypting the information with SSL and by storing the information in a secure environment.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, The Online Dentist cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to The Online Dentist, and you do so at your own risk.
