Information We May Collect About You
The information we collect via our Web site is used to improve the content of ladental.org and advance the LDA’s mission.

For each visitor to our Web site, our Web server automatically recognizes only the user’s domain name, but not the e-mail address (where possible).

We collect the domain name and internet protocol (IP) address of visitors to our Web site, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by users, including from surveys, purchases and/or registrations. We also may collect the e-mail addresses of those who communicate with us via e-mail.

With respect to cookies: We use cookies for a number of purposes, including to administer our web site and to record session information, such as items that users add to their shopping cart and user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, and to ensure that visitors are not repeatedly sent the same banner ads.

How We May Use Information We Collect
The LDA, its subsidiaries and affiliates may use your contact information to alert you to new information, products and services, events and other member benefits. From time to time, we may also make your contact information available to other reputable organizations whose products or services we think you might find interesting.

The LDA maintains a directory of dentists that may include information you submit via our web site. This directory is shared with the ADA and local dental societies. A subset of this directory, containing information about LDA members, is publicly accessible on ladental.org.

A particular LDA subsidiary or affiliate may have certain privacy policies that differ from those noted here, which will be indicated on its specific portion of ladental.org or its own site.

Your Rights
To help us keep our promise to respect your privacy, it is important when you wish to exercise your rights that you contact us via any of the means listed in the first section of this Privacy Policy.

If you do not want to receive e-mail, postal mail, telephone calls or faxes from us in the future, or if you do not want us to share your contact information in the manner described above, please provide us with your exact name, e-mail and postal addresses, phone and fax numbers and, if appropriate, ADA membership number. We will no longer use information you so identify and secured via ladental.org  if that is your wish. While we will continue to share information we maintain about you with the ADA and local dental societies, we will do our best to be sure any other specific contact information you so identify is removed from any list we share with other organizations.

On request we provide site visitors who can verify their identity with access to all information that we may maintain about them, including financial information (e.g., credit card account information), unique identifier information (e.g., user/member number or password), transaction information (e.g., dates on which users made purchases, amounts and types of purchases), communications that the visitor has directed to our site (e.g., e-mails, user inquiries), and contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number).

On request we also offer visitors the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in contact information, financial information, unique identifiers, transaction information and communications that the visitor has directed to the site.

You may also contact us if you believe your information is being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected.

More About Our Privacy Practices
With respect to other web sites and servers: ladental.org contains links to other web sites. We have no control over and take no responsibility for the privacy practices or content of those sites.

With respect to security: We use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our site. When we transfer and receive certain types of sensitive information such as financial or health information, we redirect visitors to a secure server and will notify visitors through a pop-up screen on our site. We have appropriate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our site. When users choose to make payments via credit cards, we submit the information needed to obtain payment to the appropriate clearinghouses. We do not store or reuse this credit card information, unless you have given your authorization for us to do so.

Note: Health information you may share via ladental.org is neither private nor confidential and should be shared, if at all, only in accordance with applicable laws.

Changes, Comments and Questions
If our information practices change at some time in the future we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you and allow you to opt out of new uses. The latest version of our Privacy Policy will always be available at ladental.org. If you are concerned about how your information may be used, please check back at our Web site periodically.
We welcome your comments or questions about our Privacy Policy and privacy practices. If you feel that this site is not following its stated policy, please let us know.
