Privacy Policy

Information Practices
Indiana Dental Association ("IDA" or “we”) understands that security and privacy are important issues for visitors to our web site, WWW.INDENTAL.ORG (the "Web Site"), and recognizes our obligation to keep your information secure and confidential. That is why we maintain the following standards to help protect information that personally identifies you. If our information practices change at some point in the future, we will post the changes to this Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) on our Web Site to notify you of these changes. If you are concerned about how your information is used, we encourage you to frequently review the Policy. We will always apply the Policy under which your information was collected, unless we obtain your prior consent.
 
Collection of Personal Information
You may be asked to voluntarily provide your name, address, email address, and/or other personally identifiable information ("Personal Information") to have access to some features of the Web Site. Visitors, who also are members of IDA (“Members”), already may have provided additional Personal Information voluntarily. By using the Web Site and providing us with your Personal Information, you consent to our use of such information as described in this Policy. You may always refuse to provide your Personal Information, and this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain services.
 
Collection of Anonymous Information
We or our business partners may also collect information that is anonymous, such as your IP address (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using ("Anonymous Information"), through the use of cookies or by other means. We hope that by using Anonymous Information we can update the Web Site to make it more useful to you and other visitors. We reserve the right to maintain, update, disclose or otherwise use Anonymous Information, without limitation.
 
How We May Use Information We Collect
Other than for the specific purposes set forth in this Policy, we will not disclose your Personal Information unless we obtain your prior consent or are legally required to do so. We may use your Personal Information for the following purposes: to provide services to our visitors and our Members, to administer and improve the Web site and related services; to notify our Members of products, services, promotional events or special offers that may be of interest to Members; to provide Internet security; and to meet legal requirements. We may work with our business partners who may perform certain functions on our behalf, such as sending email messages, managing data or hosting the Web Site. These business partners have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and may not use it for any other purpose. In addition, we also may work with other third parties that have products and services which may be of interest to our Members. We may sell or provide Personal Information with respect to our Members only to those third parties with products or services that may be of interest to Members. If IDA is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its assets, Anonymous or Personal Information (of both Visitors and Members) may be among the transferred assets.
