Your privacy is critically important to us. At Kids Eye Care of Maryland (herein referred to as “Company”) we have a few fundamental principles:
Like most website operators, Company collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Company’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Company’s visitors use its website. Company also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses with website form submissions. Company only discloses IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that form submission IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrator of the website.
Certain visitors to Company’s websites choose to interact with Company in ways that require Company to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Company gathers depends on the additional information provided through the “Message” or “Question” textarea on our website forms. In each case, Company collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Company. Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Company may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. However, Company does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Company discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Company’s behalf or to provide services available at Company’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Company’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Company will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Company discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Company believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Company, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of a Company website and have supplied your email address, Company may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new products/services, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Company. If you send us a request (for example via a website form, email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it without your personally identifiable information in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Company takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
