We collect various types of information from you to better meet your needs and to provide you with a more relevant user experience. Some of this information is collected automatically through cookies (a small text file placed on your computer) or other Internet tracking technologies. The type of information your browser or Internet session may automatically provide us with can include the browser you are using, your Internet domain, the operating system on your computer, your IP address and the URL you saw just before coming to our site, the pages of the site you visited and the URL of the page you visited upon leaving the site.
Personally Identifiable Consumer Information
In addition, we collect information that you may choose to provide to us when requesting additional information from us or from one or more of our clients. Examples of personally identifiable data that you may provide to us includes name, address, and email address.
How Collected Information is Used
The non-personally identifiable information that we collect is used for marketing and sales efforts to better target advertisements and other content in an effort to create a more personally relevant experience. The information is also used to predict responses to advertisements, and to help determine which ads perform best and which content is most appropriate for different individuals.
If you elect to provide us with personally identifiable information, we may utilize such information for marketing purposes, and this use may result in follow-up communications from our organization and from our clients. In addition, that information may be combined with information collected from other sources to assist with targeting ads to your preferences and behaviors, and for our other sales and marketing efforts.
Sharing Information with Third Parties
All personally identifiable information you provide is maintained in confidence by our organization. There are instances, however, in which your personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information is shared with third parties, as described below.
Your non-personally identifiable data may be shared with our third-party partners on an anonymous basis.
When you request information from us or one or more of our clients, we may transfer that information within our organization or route your information to our client(s), across borders and from your country or jurisdiction to other countries or jurisdictions around the world, so that they may provide the information on the product or service that you requested.
We may also disclose information to a third party who provides substantially similar services as the original service about which you requested more information. Please be aware that we are very careful in selecting companies with whom we do business.
In addition to the above situations where your information may be shared with others, there is also the possibility that Opticianedu.org may one day be purchased by, or merged with, another company. In the event of such transaction, the acquiring (or merging) company will have access to all collected personally identifiable information.
Finally, we may share your information as necessary to comply with a court order or to cooperate with government and law enforcement officials.
Wherever your personally identifiable information may be held within our organization or on its behalf, we intend to take reasonable and appropriate steps to protect the information you shared with us from unauthorized access or disclosure. Please note that while we will make every reasonable effort to protect your information, no transmission of data over the Internet is 100% secure.
