This Policy does not apply to our collection or processing of individuals’ health and medical information, which includes personal identifying information such as name or date of birth that a patient might provide when making an appointment. For our policies and practices regarding that type of information, you should review our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices.
Although we may link to third-party websites (for example, Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter), software, or services, this policy applies only to our Services. Please refer to the privacy policies on any third-party websites, software, or services to learn how they use your personal information.
We encourage you to read this policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it if you elect to use our Services. We understand your use of our Services to mean that you accept and consent to the use of your information as described here.
In general, we collect two types of personal information from individuals: User Information and Usage Information. We also collect certain additional information from job applicants as described below.
User Information. As part of providing our Services, we may collect certain categories of information from you that we refer to as “User Information.” Depending on your specific interaction with us, the User Information we collect might include your name, email address, telephone number, age, gender, and any other details or other information that you provide to us, such as comments or questions. For example, if you get in touch with us through our online portal, you will be prompted to enter your name and email, and you will be able to send a message to us. Similarly, if you email us, we will receive your email address, name, and other information you include in your message. If you do not want us to collect information from you, please do not provide it. But if you decline to provide certain information, you might not be able to take advantage of our Services.
Usage Information. When you use our website or click on live links in emails that we send to you, we will automatically collect certain categories of information from you that we call “Usage Information.” Usage Information may include your IP address or other device identifiers, the type of browser, device, or operating system a user employs, the URL that referred users to our website, how and when users interact with our website, and other similar information. In particular, we collect information about the manner in which our website is used, the devices on which is used, and our website’s performance. Depending on your device or browser privacy settings, Usage Information can include location data, such as geographic information regarding the location of the accessing device. If we combine Usage Information with User Information, we will treat the combined data as User Information.
Applicants for Employment. The information we collect from individuals applying for employment is largely similar to the categories of information that we collect from other individuals as part of providing our Services, but there are additional categories unique to the employment application and hiring process. When someone applies to join our team, we will collect the following: name, residential address, telephone number, email address, age, gender, education background, past employment details, applicable licensing and certification information, Social Security number, driver’s license number, credit history, and any other information provided to us through the application process. During the application process, there might be a need to gather additional information, and applicants will be notified of additional categories, if warranted.
We use the personal information we collect from you in conjunction with providing the Services for a variety of business purposes that we believe are consistent with general expectations for a contemporary business with online activities. As a reminder, this Policy and this description does not apply to medical and health information that we collect from patients or that is generated in the course of providing dental or other health care and services. To learn about our policy regarding the use of this type of information, please review our HIPAA Notice of Privacy Practices.
Announcements and Marketing. If you register to receive announcements and our periodic newsletter, we will use your name and contact information to provide you with news about promotions, offerings, events, and other information about our business. From time to time, we may also conduct surveys of subscribers [or individuals who purchase items from our online shop]. Similarly, we may use your information to respond to any questions you have about the Gleamery.
Enhancement of Services. We rely on Usage Information to learn how we can improve the performance and functionality of our website. Usage Information helps us to compile overall statistics about website traffic, pages visited, and is not recorded according to individual activity. This analytics information helps us to determine how best to organize our site and what features are of the most interest so we can better serve website visitors.
Security and Appropriate Use. We hope everyone who uses our website will do so appropriately and with respect for our community. But, probably like you, we realize that not all online activity is beneficial. Therefore, we will use personal information to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity relating to our Services and generally safeguard and maintain the security of our website and business.
Application Process. We will use information collected from individuals expressing interest in joining our team to evaluate qualifications for employment.
We do not sell individuals’ personal information – information that can identify or reasonably be connected to a particular individual. But in the course of running our business, we regularly transfer, share, and grant other businesses access to the information we collect. And there may be special circumstances when we are required to provide information collected to other organizations or persons.
Service Providers. Like most businesses, we rely on support from other businesses to provide our Services. We share personal information collected from individuals with digital marketing partners that assist us with delivering our newsletter and announcements. Our payment processor and customer relationship management platform provider will have access to and process information of individuals who make purchases from our online shop. We may rely on a service provider for IT and security support and grant access to information collected as part of those services. We will transfer or share information with service providers only in accordance with applicable information privacy laws. Furthermore, our service providers are authorized to use your information only as necessary to provide services to us and are not permitted to use your information for other purposes.
Legal Requirements. We may be required to use or discloses your personal information when necessary to comply with legally mandated reporting, subpoenas, court orders, or other legal process requirements.
Publicly Posted Content. If you post comments, images, and other content to a location which is public-facing, including any public-facing Websites, Apps, storage locations, or social media, your posted information will be publicly viewable.
With Your Consent. We may share some or all of your information to any other third party with your affirmative consent. For instance, we may display personal testimonials of satisfied customers on our website in addition to other endorsements. With your consent we may post your testimonial along with your name. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us.
Anonymized Data. We may share information that has been anonymized with others for their own uses, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
You may choose whether to receive interest-based advertising by submitting opt-outs. Some of the advertisers and service providers that perform advertising-related services for us and our partners may participate in the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising. To learn more about how you can exercise certain choices regarding Interest-based Advertising, visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices, and http://www.aboutads.info/appchoices for information on the DAA’s opt-out program for mobile apps. Some of these companies may also be members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). To learn more about the NAI and your opt-out options for their members, see http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/. You can also opt out of interest-based advertising within mobile apps based on advertising identifiers on your device (for example, through cross-app tracking). See the Advertising and Privacy options under your device’s Settings for more information. Please be aware that, even if you are able to opt out of certain kinds of interest-based advertising, you may continue to receive other types of ads. Opting out only means that those selected members should no longer deliver certain interest-based advertising to you but does not mean you will no longer receive any targeted content and/or ads (e.g., from other ad networks). The Gleamery is not responsible for effectiveness of, or compliance with, any third-parties’ opt-out options or programs or the accuracy of their statements regarding their programs.
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, the Gleamery currently does not take action in response to these signals. For more information on “do-not-track,” visit http://www.allaboutdnt.com.
Access. We value the principles of transparency and control. Accordingly, as part of our policy, you have the right to request that we disclose what specific information we have collected regarding you over the past 12 months. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights, below), we will disclose to you:
Deletion. You also have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collect regarding you, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive your request and verify your identity (see Exercising Your Rights, below), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:
Exercising Your Rights. To exercise the rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by one of the following methods:
Only individuals on whom we have collected information may make a verifiable request related to your personal information. You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or deletion twice within a 12-month period.
To verify the identity of an individual making a request, a two-step process will need to be completed. A verifiable consumer request must:
We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.
Making a verifiable request does not require you to create an account with us. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
We want to earn and maintain your trust and confidence and are committed to taking reasonable and appropriate precautions to safeguard the information we collect. This includes working with service providers who also take privacy and security seriously. We believe that these precautions account the risks involved in information storage and other processing and the nature of the information. But the internet is not completely safe and network security measures are not completely protective or impenetrable under all circumstances. Thus, we cannot guarantee the security of your information all of the time. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so. If you have any questions about the security of our Services, please contact us.
Other than Usage Information that is automatically connected when you visit our website, you are not required to provide personal information to us and you can choose not to do so. If you do provide personal information to us, for example, your name and email address, you can decide to decline future communications. If you have previously signed up to receive information about our Services, you may unsubscribe or opt out of future marketing communications from us by clicking the unsubscribe link on any email marketing communication you receive.
We do not knowingly collect or process personal information about children younger than 13 years of age without advance parental consent. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under 13 years of age and believe that your child has directly disclosed information to us, then please contact us so that we may delete the child’s information.
We review this policy at least annually and reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so we encourage you to review it frequently. If we make a material change to this Policy, we will notify you at the email address we have in our records or by means of a notice on our websites before the change takes effect. We will post any modifications or changes to the Policy on our website. If you continue to use the Services after we updated this Policy, we understand this to mean that you are agreeing to the processing of personal information as described in the updated Policy
If you have any questions about this Policy or our use of your personal information you may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
