Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

STAAR Alert and its subsidiaries (“STAAR”) believe strongly in protecting the privacy of the personally identifiable information you share with us. We also believe it is important to inform you about how we will use your personal data, and to give you choices about how those data will be used. Therefore, we encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

 

Scope

In General. In general, this Privacy Policy applies to all personal information of consumers collected or used by STAAR Alert. This includes information from websites for commercial use that are owned by STAAR Alert and offline collections of personal data for commercial use owned by STAAR Alert.

 

Special Data. Some of our websites or data collections, as well as those of partner companies whose products and services we distribute or support, work with special kinds of data (for example, medical data) which require a somewhat different privacy policy. For example, the disclosure and use of health information is governed by the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”). Whenever a customer’s interaction with STAAR Alert or a partner company requires a privacy policy different from the general STAAR Alert Privacy Policy described below, STAAR Alert will make it clear what that different privacy policy is.

These third-party companies often have their own privacy policies governing their use your personal data, which may differ from the STAAR Alert Privacy Policy. It is STAAR Alert’s policy to requires these companies to adequately safeguard your personal data and not use it for any other purpose not authorized by STAAR Alert.

Automatic Information Gathering

Some of STAAR Alert’s Websites will send a “cookie,” a small text file, to your computer. This allows STAAR Alert to recognize your computer the next time you visit, without bothering you with another request to register. Should you use an online “shopping cart,” cookies allow us to keep track of the products you purchase. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO RECEIVE COOKIES, please refer to the “Help” file of your Internet Browser to learn how to either block all cookies or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. To learn more about cookies we encourage you to visit www.cookiecentral.com If you visit our Web Sites to browse, read, or download information, we collect and store some “visitor information” from you, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet Protocol (IP) address of the computer you are using, the date and time you access our Web Site, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our Web Site. We use this information to measure the traffic on our Web Sites and to help us make our Web Sites more useful. We delete this information after some time.

 

Protecting Your Social Security Number

STAAR Alert may collect Social Security numbers (“SSNs”) from you in the course of business. We strive to protect the security of SSNs in our possession, custody or control.
