Privacy Policy

Last updated: April, 20, 2006.

Curaden Swiss knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting the Curaden Swiss web sites, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.

What Personal Information About Customers Does Curaden Swiss Gather?

The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your shopping experience at Curaden Swiss. Here are the types of information we gather.

  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future shopping for you, improving our service, and communicating with you.
  • Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses the Curaden Swiss web sites. There is software available designed to help you visit Web sites anonymously. Although we will not be able to provide you with a personalized experience at Curaden Swiss if we cannot recognize you, we want you to be aware that these tools exist.
  • E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from us if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know.
  • Information from Other Sources: We might receive information about you from other sources and add it to our account information.

What About Cookies?

  • Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and to provide features such as personalized , and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
  • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of some of the Curaden web sites features, and we recommend that you leave them turned on.

Does Curaden Swiss Share the Information It Receives?

Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.

  • Dental Practitioners, Hygienists and other Dental Service Providers: If you advise us of the name of your dental practitioner, hygienist or other dental service provider for this purpose, we will confirm with them details of your purchases. This information may help them, inter alia, to help you with your treatment. Credit will be given to your dental practitioner, hygienist or other dental service provider for his her or their referral.
  • Business Transfers: As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Notice (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). Also, in the unlikely event that Curaden Swiss or substantially all of its assets are acquired, customer information will of course be one of the transferred assets.
  • Protection of Curaden Swiss and Others: We release account and other personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Curaden Swiss, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing personally identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
  • With Your Consent: Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

How Secure Is Information About Me?

  • We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
  • We reveal only the last five digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. Of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.

What About Third-Party Advertisers and Links to Other Websites?

Our sites may from time to time include third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not provide any personally identifiable customer information to these advertisers or third-party websites.

These third-party websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our website directly to your browser. They automatically receive your IP address when this happens. They may also use cookies, JavaScript, web beacons (also known as action tags or single-pixel gifs), and other technologies to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. We do not have access to or control over cookies or other features that they may use, and the information practices of these advertisers and third-party websites are not covered by this Privacy Notice. Please contact them directly for more information about their privacy practices.

Which Information Can I Access?

Curaden Swiss gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with us for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information.

What Choices Do I Have?

  • As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of many of the Curaden Swiss web site features.
  • You can add or update certain information on our page. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records.
  • If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please let us know.
  • The Help portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. However, you will not be able to use some of our web site features if you do not use cookies.

Are Children Allowed to Use Curaden Swiss web sites?

Curaden Swiss does not sell products for purchase by children. We sell children's products for purchase by adults. If you are under 18, you may use the Curaden Swiss web sites only with the involvement of a parent or guardian.

Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions

If you choose to visit the Curaden Swiss web sites, your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our conditions of use including limitations on damages, arbitration of disputes, and application of the law of the state of South Australia. If you have any concern about privacy at Curaden Swiss, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it.

Our business changes constantly, and our Privacy Notice and the conditions of use will change also. We may e-mail periodic reminders of our notices and conditions, unless you have instructed us not to, but you should check our Web site frequently to see recent changes. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about you and your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
