LightScalpel is committed to protecting your best interests and personal information. To earn your trust and confidence, we strictly adhere to the principles outlined below. By visiting our website, you are accepting the practices described in this notice.
We protect the confidentiality and security of personal information transmitted to us using this website. To help guard your information, our website uses Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your form submissions so only LightScalpel is able to decode your information.
What Is “Personal Information”?
“Personal information” means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by LightScalpel. Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address and your telephone number.
This policy may be revised from time to time as new features are added to the website.
How Do We Collect This “Personal Information”?
Such information is collected using Contact Us forms. These mechanisms allow you to ask specific questions of LightScalpel or offer feedback, comments or suggestions about the product described therein. LightScalpel limits the collection of personal information to that which is necessary for the purposes of providing the products and services you have requested and conducting our business efficiently.
What Do We Do With “Personal Information” Collected?
We will strive to keep personal information as accurate, complete, and up-to-date as is necessary for its intended purpose. Personal information is used as necessary to serve our customers and only in accordance with applicable law. Personal information is not used or disclosed to any third parties except:
- As required in rendering the services that you have requested.
- As required by subpoena or law (as to tax authorities or regulators).
- As may be appropriate to protect against fraud or illegal activity, for the safety of customers, employees, or property, or is otherwise permitted by law.
- If you elect to disclose, or specifically direct us to disclose for you, personal information to a third party (as in the case where you request a product or service from a third party after receiving information or a link from LightScalpel).
Cookies and Other Similar Technologies
A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. A “session cookie” expires immediately when you end your session (i.e., close your browser). A “persistent cookie” stores information on the hard drive so when you end your session and return to the same website at a later date, the cookie information is still available. Tags are small strings of code that are used in conjunction with a cookie and that allow us to record activity on our websites.
Website Optimization Services
We share data with Google Analytics to understand and optimize website performance and enhance site usability for our customers. This tool runs in the background of our sites analyzing site usage information and then returning reports to us through an encrypted connection. They are required to maintain data securely and confidentially, and are not permitted to share data collected with parties other than LightScalpel. Your “Personal Information” is not collected through Google Analytics. In addition, Google Analytics may associate and group session visits to our website from various browsers and devices.
Third-Party Platform Advertising
We may also use platforms provided by companies such as Facebook and Google to offer you interest-based ads. These platforms allow us to personalize the ads that we display to you. We do not share any of your personal information with these platform vendors. Although we do not provide any personal information to these platform vendors, they may gain insights about individuals who respond to the ads we serve. You may opt-out of third-party platform ads from LightScalpel by clicking here.
