Our Commitment to Privacy
Your privacy is important to us. To
better protect your privacy we provide this notice explaining our online
information practices and the choices you can make about the way your
information is collected and used. To make this notice easy to find, we make it
available on our homepage and at every point where personally identifiable
information may be requested.

collected or submitted on the Optometry Divas website and/or during meetings.
On some pages, you can order products, make requests, and register to receive
materials. The types of personal information collected at these pages are:
Credit/Debit Card Information (etc.)
On some pages, you can submit
information about other people. For example, if you order a product online and
want it sent directly to the recipient, you will need to submit the recipient’s

Phone Number (etc.)
The Way We Use Information
When Optometry Divas
receives information about you, we use that information to improve our
services, to personalize your Optometry Divas experience, and in some cases
this involves sharing non-public personal information with our
service providers and partners.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this Privacy
Policy or controls we may otherwise offer to you, we may preserve, use, or
disclose your personal data or other safety data if we believe that it is
reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation, legal
process, or governmental request; to protect the
safety of any person; to protect the safety or integrity of our platform,
including to help prevent spam, abuse, or malicious actors on our services, or
to explain why we have removed content or accounts from our services8;
to address fraud, security, or technical issues; or to protect our rights or
property or the rights or property of those who use our services. However,
objections that you may have to a third party’s, including a government’s,
request to disclose your personal data.
We use the information you provide
about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not
share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to
complete that order.
We use the information you provide
about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to
confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except
to the extent necessary to complete that order.
We use return email addresses to
answer the email we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose
and are not shared with outside parties.
We use non-identifying and aggregate
information to better design our website and to share with advertisers. For
example, we may tell an advertiser that X number of individuals visited a
certain area on our website, but we would not disclose anything that could be
used to identify those individuals.
We may release personal information
where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation or is
requested by a government agency.
Finally, we never use or share the
personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to
the ones described above without also providing you an opportunity to opt- out
or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. We never sell or rent your personal
Our Commitment to Data Security
To prevent unauthorized access,
maintain data accuracy, and ensure the correct use of information, we have put
in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to
safeguard and secure the information we collect online. We use Secure Sockets
Layer (SSL) encryption when collecting or transferring sensitive information
such as credit card information. SSL encryption is designed to make the
information unreadable by anyone but us. This security measure is working when
you see the symbol of either an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending on
your browser) at the bottom of your browser window.
Our Commitment to Children’s Privacy
Protecting the privacy of the very
young is especially important. For that reason, we never collect or maintain
information at our website from those we actually know are under 13, and no
part of our website is structured to attract anyone under 13.
Links to Non-Optometry Divas Websites
Our website may provide links to
third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those
links, you will leave our website. We do not control those sites or their
privacy practices, which may differ from our practices. We do not endorse or
make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you
choose to provide to or that is collected by these third parties is not covered
company before submitting your personal information.
Computer Tracking and Cookies
Our Web sites are not set up to track,
collect or distribute personal information not entered by visitors. Our site
logs do generate certain kinds of non-identifying site usage data, such as the
number of hits and visits to our sites. This information is used for internal
purposes by technical support staff to provide better services to the public
and may also be provided to others, but again, the statistics contain no
personal information and cannot be used to gather such information.
