We are not responsible for the content or privacy compliance of third party websites or applications, which we do not control. You should check those websites or applications for their privacy statements and terms that apply to them.

We collect information about you, such as basic profile details, your interests and goals, as well as information generated as you use our services, such as access logs. We also collect information from third parties; for example, we transfer data about you from the American Dental Association’s (ADA) member database, such as your name and address.

Information collected when you use our Services

When you use our Services, we collect information about which features you use, how you use them and the devices you use to access our Services. 

See more details in Segment 3 of this document.  

4. COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES

We use and may allow others to use cookies and similar technologies (e.g., web beacons, pixels) to recognize you and/or your device(s). See below for more information on why we use them (such as authenticating you, remembering your preferences and settings, analyzing site traffic and trends, and delivering and measuring the effectiveness of advertising campaigns) and how you can better control their use, through your browser settings and other tools.

Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) have a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) feature that tells a website that a user does not want to have his or her online activity tracked.  If a website that responds to a DNT signal receives a DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user.  Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform.  For this reason, many businesses, including ours, do not currently respond to DNT signals.

See more details about our Cookie Policy in Segment 4 of this document

5. HOW WE USE INFORMATION

The main reason we use your information is to deliver and improve our services. We may also use your information for any purpose permitted in the ADA.org Privacy Notice. Additionally, we use your information to provide you with advertising that may be of interest to you. 

See more detailed explanation of the various reasons we use your information in Segment 5 of this document.  

6. HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION

Since our goal is to help you make successful connections, we share subscribers’ information with other subscribers. We also share some subscribers’ information with service providers and partners who assist us in operating the Services, with ADA and its affiliates, with state and local dental societies that are in the tripartite, and, in some cases, legal authorities. 

See more details about how your information is shared in Segment 6 of this document.  

We may use and share non-personal information (meaning information that, by itself, does not identify who you are such as device information, general demographics, general behavioral data, geolocation in de-identified form), as well as personal information in hashed, non-human readable form, under any of the above circumstances. We may also share this information with ADA, its affiliates, and third parties (notably advertisers) to develop and deliver targeted advertising on our services and on websites or applications of third parties, and to analyze and report on advertising you see. We may combine this information with additional non-personal information or personal information collected from other sources. More information on our use of cookies and similar technologies can be found above in Section 4, COOKIES AND OTHER SIMILAR DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES.

7. CROSS-BORDER DATA TRANSFERS

The Services are designed solely for individuals in the United States.  

8. YOUR RIGHTS

Your rights and responsibilities

While we take measures to protect your personal information, no security measure or network is entirely secure. Your password to access our services should be complex, unique to this website, not shared with anyone, and should be changed from time to time.

10. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION

We use safeguards to protect you from unauthorized access to or alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information. However, no security measure or network is entirely secure. Although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information will always remain secure.

We may suspend your use of all or part of the services without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. If you believe that your account or information is no longer secure, please notify us at the address above.
