1. YOUR CONSENT
2. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE
GREATER SPRINGFIELD ORTHODONTICS does not store specific information about you without your permission. Any information that is personally identifiable is stored secured in our database. All information is stored on Australian systems and is governed by the Privacy Act 1988 and subsequent amendments.
You may be invited to opt-in to a specific program, or to participate in a particular activity. In such case, you may be asked to submit personally identifiable information, with each such program having its own terms and conditions for use of such personal information.
3. PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION
As you navigate through Our website, certain anonymous information may be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information). We may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to website users, customise your experience based on your preferences, compile and analyse statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve Greater Springfield Orthodontics for your use. Such information is not combined with personally identifiable information that may be collected elsewhere by us, without your consent.
4. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
Except as otherwise stated, Greater Springfield Orthodontics may use information collected by us to improve the content of our web site and to customise your experience based on your preferences. We may use this information to communicate information more relevant to you (if you have requested it), or for our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired by us that is not in a personally identifiable form.
If at any time you no longer wish to receive communications from Us please let Us know.
5. AGGREGATE INFORMATION
We gather individual pieces of information that are not traceable to any individual user and cannot be used to identify an individual user. We may provide general traffic, site usage, and length-of-stay information in reports to third parties, including, but not limited to advertisers and firms with which we have a business relationship. This type of information is shared only in aggregate and does not personally identify you. Depending on the circumstances, we may charge third parties for this information. We require parties with whom we share aggregate information to agree that they will not attempt to make the information identifiable, such as by combining it with other databases.
We take reasonable steps to help Our website users protect personally identifiable information and to protect such information from loss, misuse unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. You are responsible for securing your device(s) to protect against unwanted access to your information.
We are constantly developing and enhancing our use of online technologies. We make all reasonable efforts to ensure we keep this Privacy Statement and related documents up to date in this regard.
