Notification of Changes to This Policy. OpenArc is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to its websites and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, OpenArc’s data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, OpenArc will post the changes on our websites to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page frequently. This policy was last updated on February 26, 2016.
Personal Data Collected Through OpenArc.net. Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data OpenArc currently collects through its websites is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our sites.
For example, you may use this site to contact OpenArc with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our websites, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company’s name, your e-mail address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your name and e-mail address. When you submit information to us through OpenArc.net, you will receive a confirmation e-mail if you enter a valid e-mail address.
Use of Personal Data Collected Through OpenArc.net. OpenArc uses the personal data information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. OpenArc and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. OpenArc and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications.
Similarly, we may provide “subscription” e-mail services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news about OpenArc products or related medical conditions and procedures. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to “opt-out” of, or cancel, the subscription.
Anonymous Data Collected Through OpenArc.net. In addition to the information you provide when you use our websites, OpenArc uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our websites. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our websites, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our sites (for example, if they connected to the OpenArc website by clicking on one of our banner ads).
This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our sites. OpenArc and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.
While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, OpenArc uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods in our physical facilities.
Children. OpenArc does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under thirteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to OpenArc, please contact us, and we will try to delete that information from our databases.
