Privacy Policy

Your Privacy is Important

Your privacy is critically important to us. At Vaksman Dental Group (“VDG”) we have some fundamental principles:

  1. We don’t ask for personal information unless we actually need it.
  2. We share your information with Stripe, the billing agency that will be handling your financial transactions.
  3. We don’t share your personal information with anyone else except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  4. No personal information is stored on our servers unless we need it for the on-going operation of our services.

If you have questions about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact our support team.

Irena Vaksman, DDS, PC (doing business as “Vaksman Dental Group”) operates this website (www.drvaksman.com) and any subdomains. It is VDG’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, VDG collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. VDG’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how VDG’s visitors use its website. From time to time, VDG may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

VDG also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users submitting forms.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to VDG’s websites choose to interact with VDG in ways that require VDG to gather personally-identifying information. Users seeking to become members will need to provide personal and financial information necessary to process the membership application and perform billing operations, including a username, email address, phone number, family relationships if this is a group account, and billing information. In each case, VDG collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with VDG. VDG does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from becoming members or maintaining their on-going membership.

Aggregated Statistics

VDG may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, VDG may monitor the most popular uses of our VDG control panels, or look at the most common referrers to our public site.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

VDG discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on VDG’s behalf or to provide services available at VDG’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using VDG’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. VDG will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, VDG discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when VDG believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of VDG, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an VDG website and have supplied your email address, VDG may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with VDG and our products. However, we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. VDG takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. VDG uses cookies to help it identify and track visitors, their usage of VDG website, and their website access preferences. VDG visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using VDG’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of VDG’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If VDG, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that VDG goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of VDG may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, VDG may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in VDG’s sole discretion. VDG encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
