PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT
IDEAL COLLECTS INFORMATION THROUGH THE SITE IN TWO WAYS:
• Information You Give Us – You do not have to give us any personal information to browse the site. However, you may be asked to provide personal information (such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, and other information) to send information to us, to receive information from us, or to apply for enrollment in the surgeon Network.
If you decide to purchase implants from this site, an approved third party service provider will collect your credit/debit card number, credit/debit card expiration date, credit/debit card type (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express), and billing name and address in order to qualify and bill you for these implants. Ideal does not collect or retain this information.
• Cookies and Other Information We Get From You – Cookies are small pieces of data stored by web browsers on your computer’s hard drive and to keep track of your movement from one page to another.
When you visit the site, we send cookies or other identifiers to your computer or device that uniquely identify your browser or device. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you unless it is added to identifiable information. Ideal or third party advertising companies may serve ads on our behalf using those technologies.
Our web server automatically collects information from your computer and navigation patterns when you visit the site, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer’s operating system, the type of browser you use, and the specific web pages visited during your connection.
HOW WE USE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Ideal may use personal information to: (a) administer and improve the site; (b) manage your account and process implant orders; (c) respond to your comments, questions and requests for information; (d) customize your experience at the site; (e) invite your feedback in consumer surveys; (f) contact you by newsletter, email or postal mail, with information about the site, our products, services, or promotions; and (g) as otherwise provided in this policy.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change your browser settings to block all cookies. If you disable cookies, some features of the site may not function properly.
Some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites’ privacy practices. We do not currently respond to the browser DNT signals or similar mechanisms.

Such services may include processing credit card payments or refunds, fulfilling and delivering orders, website hosting, marketing, and website usage analytics. Your personal information may be stored and processed by our service providers in the United States or other locations where the service providers maintain facilities. Ideal is not responsible for the conduct of these third parties, and we expressly disclaim all liability for damages of any kind arising out of the action or inaction of such third parties.
