Privacy Policy

Welcome to our Privacy Policy page! When you use our web site services, you trust us with your information. This Privacy Policy is meant to help you understand what data we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. When you share information with us, we can make our services even better for you. For instance, we can show you more relevant search results and ads, help you connect with people or to make sharing with others quicker and easier. As you use our services, we want you to be clear how we`re using information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. This is important; we hope you will take time to read it carefully. Remember, you can find controls to manage your information and protect your privacy and security. We`ve tried to keep it as simple as possible.
 
Our customers have the right to access, correct and delete personal data relating to them, and to object to the processing of such data, by addressing a written request, at any time. Coast Dental & Orthodontics makes every effort to put in place suitable precautions to safeguard the security and privacy of personal data, and to prevent it from being altered, corrupted, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized third parties. However, Coast Dental & Orthodontics does not control each and every risk related to the use of the Internet, and therefore warns the Site users of the potential risks involved in the functioning and use of the Internet. The Site may include links to other web sites or other internet sources. As Coast Dental & Orthodontics cannot control these web sites and external sources, Coast Dental & Orthodontics cannot be held responsible for the provision or display of these web sites and external sources, and may not be held liable for the content, advertising, products, services or any other material available on or from these web sites or external sources.
 
You can view or edit your personal data online for many of our services. You can also make choices about our collection and use of your data. How you can access or control your personal data will depend on which services you use. You can choose whether you wish to receive promotional communications from our web site by email, SMS, physical mail, and telephone. If you receive promotional email or SMS messages from us and would like to opt out, you can do so by following the directions in that message. You can also make choices about the receipt of promotional email, telephone calls, and postal mail by visiting and signing into Coast Dental & Orthodontics Promotional Communications Manager, which allows you to update contact information, manage contact preferences, opt out of email subscriptions, and choose whether to share your contact information with our partners. These choices do not apply to mandatory service communications that are part of certain web site services.
Our web site collects data to operate effectively and provide you with the best experiences with our services. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a personal account. We get some of it by recording how you interact with our services by, for example, using technologies like cookies, and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device. We also obtain data from third parties (including other companies). For example, we supplement the data we collect by purchasing demographic data from other companies. We also use services from other companies to help us determine a location based on your IP address to customize certain services to your location. The data we collect depends on the services and features you use.
Our web site uses the data we collect for three basic purposes: to operate our business and provide (including improving and personalizing) the services we offer, to send communications, including promotional communications, and to display advertising. In carrying out these purposes, we combine data we collect through the various web site services you use to give you a more seamless, consistent and personalized experience. However, to enhance privacy, we have built in technological and procedural safeguards designed to prevent certain data combinations. For example, we store data we collect from you when you are unauthenticated (not signed in) separately from any account information that directly identifies you, such as your name, email address or phone number.
 
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete any transaction or provide any service you have requested or authorized. For example, we share your content with third parties when you tell us to do so. When you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and other entities that process payment transactions or provide other financial services, and for fraud prevention and credit risk reduction. In addition, we share personal data among our controlled affiliates and subsidiaries. We also share personal data with vendors or agents working on our behalf for the purposes described in this statement. For example, companies we’ve hired to provide customer service support or assist in protecting and securing our systems and services may need access to personal data in order to provide those functions. In such cases, these companies must abide by our data privacy and security requirements and are not allowed to use personal data they receive from us for any other purpose. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience. Third parties serve cookies through our websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.

We may also use small pieces of software code called “web beacons” or “clear gifs” to collect anonymous and aggregate advertising matrix, such as counting page views, promotion views, or advertising responses. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognise certain types of information on user’s computer, such as a user’s Cookie number, time and date of a page view, and description of the page where the web beacon is placed. You may render some web beacons unusable if you choose to reject their associated cookies. These web beacons may be used to deliver cookies that conform with our Cookie Policy.

To gain a better understanding of how we utilize cookies, it is helpful to consider a high-level classification that divides cookies into two main groups: session cookies and persistent cookies. These two types are managed differently by both the web server and the browser, serving distinct purposes.

Session cookies are temporarily stored by the browser and are active only during the current browsing session. They collect information that is relevant only while the visitor is actively using the website. Once the visitor leaves the site or closes their browser, the session cookie is removed. Considered safe and integral components of various website functionalities like shopping carts, session cookies are commonly utilized by different types of plugins.

On the other hand, persistent cookies are employed to track a visitor’s activity across multiple visits to a site. Unlike session cookies, they are retained by the browser even after it is closed. A typical application of persistent cookies is simplifying the authentication process for users. For instance, when a user selects “Remember Me” on a login page, their credentials are stored in a persistent cookie, enhancing convenience during subsequent visits. Persistent cookies may also be used to maintain a user’s wish list or preserve other preferences for future visits.

Persistent cookies serve another critical function, which focuses on tracking user behavior across different websites. Companies like Google and Facebook utilize persistent cookies to personalize the user experience by collecting and analyzing user activity. This application is often referred to as tracking cookies.

Whenever a visitor returns to a site using a persistent cookie, the cookie is sent back to the issuer. However, the cookie can also be shared when the user accesses other websites that have resources (such as advertisements) provided by the cookie issuer.

While there are other categorizations for cookies, such as those based on purpose, security, and user authorization, understanding the distinction between session cookies and persistent cookies provides a solid foundation for small business owners looking to maximize the benefits of cookies on their websites.

In conclusion, cookies play an essential role in web functionality, and comprehending their various types empowers website owners to navigate their usage effectively.

Our site uses both Session cookies and Persistent cookies

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.
