Information We May Collect About You
The information we collect via our website is used to improve the content of fwdds.org and advance the FWDDS’s mission.
For each visitor to our website, 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.
How We May Use Information We Collect
The FWDDS, its subsidiaries and affiliates may use your contact information to alert you to new information, products and services, events and other opportunities. The FWDDS maintains a directory of dentists that may include information you submit via our web site. This directory is shared with national, state and local dental societies. A subset of this directory, containing information about FWDDS members, is publicly accessible on fwdds.org.
With respect to your e-mail address
We have instituted stringent reviews and opt-out capabilities to ensure that you do not receive unwanted e-mail from the FWDDS. We will not give or sell your e-mail address to any entity outside the FWDDS, its subsidiaries and affiliated entities (such as local dental societies).
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 fwdds.org, if that is your wish. While we will continue to share information we maintain about you with 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.
You may also contact us if you believe your information is being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected.
