The Services have special provisions for use by children and minors. Propel Orthodontics Services is a general audience service and does not knowingly collect PII from children under 13 years of age. Anyone under the age of 13 should refrain from accessing or using our Services. Anyone between ages 13 and 18 must have this policy reviewed and accepted by a parent or legal guardian.
We reserve the right to modify this Policy at any time, so please review it frequently. Further details about our Services and our commitment to privacy are identified below.
1. Information Collection
1.1 In order to use the Services, you must join Propel Orthodontics and create an account with us. To create the account, we ask that you provide PII, which may include, among other items, your name, email address, gender, birthday, location, company. Certain fields of information are required information, but other information will be optional. You agree to only put the applicable information into each field and to ensure its accuracy.
1.4 A pixel tag is a tiny image inserted in a webpage and used to record the number and types of views for that page. Propel Orthodontics may allow third party pixel tags to be present on Propel Orthodontics for purposes of advertising, providing services or data and statistics collection.
1.5 Some of the advertisements that appear on Propel Orthodontics may also be delivered to you by third-party Internet advertising companies. These advertisers use certain technologies to deliver advertisements and to collect non-PII about your visit to or use of Services, including information about the ads they display, via a cookie placed on your computer that reads your IP address.
1.6 Third-party applications (such as widgets) created by third-party developers may be available on the Services. Third-party applications are small bits of software, often with interactivity, that can be installed into Registered Users’ profiles or shared with other Users. However, Propel Orthodontics does not control the third-party developers, and cannot dictate their actions. When a Registered User engages with a third-party application, that Registered User is interacting with the third-party developer, not with Propel Orthodontics. We encourage Registered Users not to provide PII to the third party’s application unless the Registered User knows the party.
1.7 Due to Internet standards, when you access the Services, we automatically receive information regarding the website you came from prior to Propel Orthodontics and the website you go to when leaving Propel Orthodontics. We also receive the IP address of your computer (or the proxy server you use to access the Web), your internet services provider, and your computer’s operating system. Any linkage between your IP address and your PII is not shared with independent third parties, except with your permission or as required by law.
1.8 Certain information we obtain may reveal or allow others to identify aspects of your private life, including information deemed “sensitive” by applicable law. Please be aware that in providing information to us, you expressly and voluntarily accept this Policy and the terms of your User Agreement.
