IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THE Site.

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“PII”)

When you use the Site, the Company receives personally identifiable information that you when you voluntarily supply it, for example when you request information, subscribe to a mailing list, participate in a survey, enter a sweepstakes or other promotion, or apply for a job. The Company defines personally identifiable information as any information unique to you such as your name, mailing address, physical address, email address, telephone number, or social security number. The Company does not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to provide the information voluntarily. If you are asked to disclose certain personally identifiable information while visiting the Site that you do not want to share with the Company, simply do not enter the information.

NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (“NON-PII”)

The Company also gathers certain Non-Personally Identifiable Information about use of the Site, including the number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the programs and services preferred. We look at the data in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. We gather this information so we can, for example, learn how many people visit the Site, see which pages are the most and least viewed, and identify which web sites are referring visitors to the Site and related information. The data helps us determine the extent to which visitors use certain parts of the Site and tailor the Site in the future. The Company may collect this information through means such as, without limitation, cookies and web beacons.

SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION

Information submitted to the Company or collected by the Company may be used for the purpose for which it was submitted or collected, as well as shared among all Company affiliates, subsidiaries, and parent companies, and with third party marketing partners, and with third parties that help manage the Site. The Company may also use information in other ways, such as to contact you about changes to Site and Company policies, to provide you with information about products and offers we believe will be of interest to you, or as otherwise disclosed to you at the point of collection.

 

In order to better understand user preferences and better provide services to users, the Company may combine information we receive with other information from third party sources, transactions and communications. We may also combine that information with data that is publicly available and data that we receive from other reputable sources. We also reserve the right to share information with legal authorities if it is, in our sole opinion, necessary to investigate, prevent, or otherwise take action regarding suspected fraud, situations involving threats or potential harm, or if otherwise required by law (such as by a subpoena, court order, or other legal means). In the event that we reasonably believe that a user has violated any of the terms or policies governing use of the Site, we reserve the right to use any information we have collected in connection with any efforts we make or made by any of our agents on our behalf. We may transfer PII to an affiliate or third party as part of a transfer of business assets. Such a transfer would be within the scope of this policy so long as the affiliate or third party agrees to continue to maintain use and storage of PII in accordance with this policy.

 

RIGHT TO VERIFY THE ACCURACY OF INFORMATION

Keeping information accurate and up to date is important to the Company. If any information you previously provided changes, or you no longer desire certain services, the Company will correct, update, or remove your personal information.

Implant Direct

Implant Direct has a 29 year history of innovation in the dental implant industry. Implant Direct's philosophy has always been to provide high quality, innovative dental implants at cost-effective prices. It started with the Core-Vent implant system in 1982, launching the concept of simplified surgical procedures and versatile prosthetic application. In 1986, the self-tapping *Screw-Vent Implant with its internal hex-thread connection was invented and considered to be the cornerstone for modern dental implant designs. Then, in 1997 came the Tapered *Screw-Vent for two-stage surgery and the Tapered *Advent for one-stage surgery, both with the same body design and dimensions allowing insertion with the same set of surgical instruments. In all, Implant Direct has developed a spectrum of seven application specific implants, all with the same body design and dimensions.
