Privacy Policy

Your privacy is important to us. The Colorado Dental Association is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide us when using this Website. This Privacy Policy explains why we collect particular information and how we will protect your personal privacy within our Website.

What personal information do we collect?
We collect personal information from you when you place an order, make a donation, subscribe to our newsletter, respond to a survey or fill out a form. When ordering, registering or making a contribution on our site, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information. We may also collect information that our users divulge about other people, such as referrals or gift purchases. You may, however, visit our site without providing this type of information.

What do we use your information for?
The personal information we collect from you may be used in one or more of the following ways:

  • To personalize your experience
    Your information helps us to tailor our site to your preferences and needs.
  • To improve customer service
    Your information helps us to respond more effectively to your requests and support needs.
  • To process transactions
    Your information will not be sold, exchanged, transferred, or given to any other company without your consent, other than for the express purpose of completing your order and delivering the purchased product or service requested.
  • To send periodic e-mails
    The e-mail address you provide for order processing, will be used to send you information and updates pertaining to your order. If you opt-in to our mailing list, you will receive e-mails that may include company news, updates or related product or service information.
  • Note: If at any time you would like to unsubscribe from our mailing lists, we include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each e-mail. Please note that when unsubscribed you may still receive transaction and account related e-mails, and e-mails to confirm an action you take on our site, such as filling out a form, e-mailing your member of Congress, making a gift, etc.

How do we protect your personal information?
While no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed secure, we implement a variety of measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or access your personal information.

We transfer data using a secure server. All sensitive or credit information is transmitted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL is a proven coding system that lets your browser automatically encrypt, or scramble, data before you send it to us. We also protect personal information by placing it on a secure portion of our Website that is only accessible by authorized CDA personnel, who are required to keep the information confidential.

Do we use cookies?
Yes. Cookies are pieces of information that many Websites use for record-keeping purposes. Use of cookies makes Web-surfing easier by performing certain functions such as saving your passwords, remembering your personal preferences and making sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. For example, the “Remember me” feature in the Member Login utilizes cookies. By selecting the “Remember me” option, your username and password will be saved to keep you from having to enter it each time you visit our site.

Your browser is probably set to accept cookies. However, if you would prefer not to receive cookies, you can alter the configuration of your browser to refuse cookies. If you choose to have your browser refuse cookies, it is possible that some areas of our Website will not function properly when you view them.

We use also cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

How is my Internet Protocol (IP) Address used?
An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. We use IP addresses to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Website, analyze trends, track users’ movement, gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in order for us to improve the site, and deliver customized, personalized content. IP addresses are not linked to any personally identifiable information.

We collect an IP address from all visitors to our Website. We may track other anonymous data such as the name of the Website from which you linked to our site, the time and date you accessed our site and the pages you visit. We will not use this information to identify you in any way.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer your personal information to outside parties, including marketing or advertising companies or information brokers. We will disclose your personal information without your consent only in the event that we are required to do so as part of a legal proceeding, to comply with the law, to enforce our site policies, or to protect our or others rights, property, or safety.

Your personal information may be provided to trusted contractors or vendors who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business or servicing you under an agreement that they will keep the information confidential.

We may use non-personally identifying and aggregate visitor information to share with advertisers, to better design our Website and for other uses. For example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our Website, or that Y number of men and Z number of women filled out our registration form, but we will not disclose anything that could be used to identify individuals.

While we have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of linked sites, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance
