This website is owned by Perception Eyecare (“Perception Eyecare” or the “Company”). At Perception Eyecare, we respect the privacy of our website visitors.
Children Under the Age of 13
Our websites are not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to our websites or the Company. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on our websites or provide any personal information or other information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
Information We Collect and How We Collect It
Like many websites, this website collects information from its visitors. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information. Generally speaking, personally identifiable information means information that can be used to identify an individual, including information such as your name, address, e-mail address, personal health information, and other information, such as resume or employment-related information that you may choose to voluntarily provide to the Company by e-mail or through this website.
As you navigate through our website, certain information may also be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cookies, internet tags and navigational data collection. Our servers automatically log information about visits to our website in the normal course of establishing and maintaining web connections. Server logs record statistical information, such as visitors’ IP addresses, type of operating systems, time and duration of visit, web pages requested, and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains and browser types. These statistics are reported in aggregate form to us and are used to improve our website and ensure that it provides the optimal web experience for visitors. We do not link server log information to any other data, in a way that would enable us to identify individual visitors. However, we may review server logs for security purposes, for example, to detect intrusions into our network. The possibility therefore exists that server log data, which contains visitors’ IP addresses, could in instances of criminal malfeasance be used to trace and identify individuals. In such instances, raw data logs would be shared with appropriate investigative bodies authorized to investigate such breaches of security.
How We Use Information of Visitors to Our Websites
We use personal information for the purposes for which you provide it to us, and as permitted or required by law. In particular, we use personal information that you provide electronically for purposes that include: (i) processing your requests for an appointment with one of our optometrists; (ii) processing your requests for, and sending you, e-mail updates and any other information you have requested about our products and services; (iii) responding to your feedback, questions and comments about us and our products and services; (iv) understanding how we can improve the website and our products and services; and (v) assessing website use and traffic.
[We may disclose your personally identifiable information to third party service providers, and/or our agents for operational purposes, in order to assist us in achieving the purpose for which the information is collected. Some of these affiliates may be located outside of Canada; United States or the EU and, as such, they are subject to foreign laws including laws that may require disclosure of personal information to foreign government authorities. In addition, we may disclose your personally identifiable information where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.]
Whenever we process personal information, we take reasonable steps to ensure that your personal information is kept accurate and up-to date for the purposes for which it was collected. We will provide you with the ability to object to the processing of your personal information if such processing is not reasonably required for a legitimate business purpose as described in this policy or our compliance with applicable laws.
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our website and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this website may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this website, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
Accessing and Correcting Your Information
If you wish to contact us in order to access or correct your personal information, or regarding our use of your personal information, or to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information, please email us at email@example.com. If you contact us, please note the name of the website where you provided the information, as well as the specific information you would like us to correct, update or delete. As part of your request, you may be required to provide documentation to verify your identity. Requests to delete personal information will be subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document filing or retention obligations imposed on us.
As with many other websites, our website makes use of session and permanent “cookie” technology. Cookies are small text files that contain a unique identification number that is automatically deposited on a visitor’s computer. This information helps us determine, in the aggregate, the total number of visitors to the website on an ongoing basis and the types of Internet browsers (e.g. Safari, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Internet Explorer) and operating systems (e.g. Windows or MacOS) used by our visitors. This information is used to facilitate and enhance your online visits. We do not cross-reference the information automatically collected through “cookies” with any type of personal information that is voluntarily offered on or through this website.
