Please review this Policy as your use of this Website means you have consented to this Policy. You should also read our Terms of Service which set out the contract between you and Q8dental for the use of our Services.
The information we collect falls into three groups: (1) the information that you may choose to voluntarily provide to us while using our Services (described below under "Information You Provide to Us" and (2) information collected automatically as a result of your use of our Services (described below under "Information Collected Automatically"); and (3) information collected from third parties (described below under "Information Collected From Others").
There are several circumstances in which you may choose to voluntarily provide certain Personal Information to us. For example:
When you sign up for our Services, you give us Personal Information voluntarily by providing it to us. That information includes but is not limited to the username you choose to use for our services, your name, address, and your Dental license number or DEA number.
You may also voluntarily give us Personal Information when you make a purchase through us, subscribe to our emails, newsletters, enter promotions, or communicate with us. Depending on which of these Services you use, that may include your name, address, phone number, email address, Dental license number or DEA number, and your product purchase/return/exchange information.
You may also voluntarily provide us with Personal Information if you fill out a form on our Site that requests such information (e.g., submitting a Take Down Request).
You may also voluntarily provide us with Personal Information when you send an email message to any Q8dental.com email address published on our Site or when you use the Chat feature of our Site. When you use such features, we retain the contents of your messages or chats, your email address, and any information you provide to us through those communications such as your name, your contact preferences, and any response we send back to you.
There may be other circumstances in which you chose to give us Personal Information. However, we ask that you never send us any highly sensitive Personal Information (such as protected health data or Social Security numbers) through our Site.
Like most web-based services, we (or our service providers) may automatically collect Personal Information from your browser or your device when you use the Site. For example we may collect and use your IP address, browser type, operating system, location information, the web page you were visiting before accessing our Services, the pages on our Site which you browsed or the features you used, and the time spent on those pages or features, the links on our Site that you click on, device and advertising identifiers, and your purchase history to understand who is using our Services and how.
Q8dental use several different automated technologies to operate our Site, communicate with our customers, and ensure we are effective in our advertising. For example, we use "cookies," which are small text files that are placed on your computer or device by a Web server when you access our Services. We may place and access cookies and similar technologies on your computer or device, which are known as "first party cookies." Cookies may also be placed and accessed by third parties, which are known as "third party cookies" and are described below.
We also use "web beacons" (also known as web bugs, pixel tags, or clear GIFS) which are small graphics with a unique identifier that may be included on our Services for example to deliver or communicate with cookies, to track and measure the performance of our Services, to monitor how many visitors view our Services, and to monitor the effectiveness of our advertising. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user's hard drive or device, web beacons are typically embedded invisibly on web pages (or in an email).
We use the following types of cookies:
The types of cookies described above may be "session cookies" or "persistent cookies." Session cookies are only stored on your device whilst you are using the Services, and are deleted when you log off from the Services or close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device for a period of time after you log off from the Services or close your browser.
Some cookies may be placed by third parties when you use the Services as some third party service providers that we engage (including third party advertisers) may place their own cookies on your hard drive or device. These cookies may provide information to those third parties about your browsing habits. Some also help to serve you with advertisements which are more relevant to you.
For example, our websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses non-operational cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. At our request, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating how the website is used, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. You can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising and customize Google Display Network ads using the Ads Settings Feature on Google. By clicking Ads Settings, you will be taken out of this Website and to Google where you can control the information Google uses to show you ads. In addition, you can use Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on to disable tracking by Google Analytics. You can also find more information about Google Analytics here.
Similarly, we use the Facebook pixel service. The Facebook pixel is an analytics tool that allows us to measure the effectiveness of our advertising by understanding the actions you take on other websites. We use it to make sure our advertising on Facebook is shown to the right people and is effective. When you visit our website and take an action, this triggers the pixel which reports this action to Facebook. You may opt out of the collection and use of your information for ad targeting by visiting the Digital Advertising Alliance's Consumer Choice Tool.
Q8dental reserves its rights to use other third party cookies or tools not listed here in this Policy. Should you wish to know the cookies being used on our Site at any particular time, we encourage you to use free tools such as Ghostery that will provide you with a list of all cookies as well as the ability to block or prevent them from being used.
Although most browsers automatically accept cookies, you can change your browser options to stop automatically accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting cookies. However, if you don't accept cookies, you may not be able to access all portions or features of the Services.
While you may disable the usage of cookies through your browser settings, Q8dental currently does not respond to a "Do Not Track" signal in the HTTP header from your browser or mobile application due to the lack of industry standard on how to interpret that signal.
In addition to the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically, we collect data that's publicly available. For example, information you submit in a public forum (e.g., a blog, chat room or social network) can be read, collected or used by us and others, and could be used to personalize your experience. You are responsible for the information you choose to submit in these instances.
We also obtain information provided by third parties. For instance, we obtain information from companies that can enhance our existing customer information to improve the accuracy and add to the information we have about our customers (e.g., adding address information).
We use the personal information we obtain about you to:
We will not share any Personal Data that we have collected from you or regarding you except as described below:
When you post product reviews or rate products on our Site, we will share certain Personal Information with other users or visitors to our Site. This Personal Information includes your user name and the contents of your product review or product rating.
When you make purchases through our site, we share certain Personal Information with Q8dental's vendors. This Personal Information is limited to what is necessary to allow the vendor to complete the order and includes your name, address, other contact information such as email address or phone number, the items you ordered that will be fulfilled or provided by that vendor, and any required licensing information. Q8dental's vendors never receive access to your payment information. Additionally, we do not share any additional Personal Information with any third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
We cooperate with government and law enforcement officials or private parties to enforce and comply with the law. We only share information about you to government or law enforcement officials or private parties when we reasonably believe necessary or appropriate: (a) to respond to claims, legal process (including subpoenas and warrants); (b) to protect our property, rights, and safety and the property, rights, and safety of a third party or the public in general; and (c) to investigate and stop any activity that we consider illegal, unethical, or legally actionable.
Information that we collect from our users, including Personal Information, is a business asset. If we are acquired by a third party as a result of a transaction such as a merger, acquisition, or asset sale or if our assets are acquired by a third party in the event we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, some or all of our assets, including your Personal Information, will be disclosed or transferred to a third party acquirer in connection with the transaction.
While no service is completely secure, we have a security team dedicated to keeping personal information safe. We maintain safeguards that are intended to appropriately protect against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, unauthorized alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, misuse and any other unlawful form of processing of the Personal Information in our possession. We employ security measures such as using firewalls to protect against intruders, building redundancies throughout our network (so that if one server goes down, another can cover for it) and testing for and protecting against network vulnerabilities.
In order to keep your personal information accurate and complete, you can access or update some of it in the following ways:
If you do not wish to receive promotional telephone calls, Email support@Q8dental.com or call (800) 517-1997 M-F 8am-8pm ET with your first and last name and telephone number to opt out. This opt out does not apply to phone calls necessary to complete a transaction you request (e.g., confirmation of delivery address).
Q8dental may send promotional emails such as weekly specials and other various products and services. If you don't want to receive this information, you can opt out at any time. Simply visit the "My Account" section of the site and under "Manage Email Subscriptions" simply click on the button which reads "Click Here to Unsubscribe".

Advertising Alliances Opt-out: In addition to adjusting the appropriate settings in your browser described above, many advertising companies that may collect anonymous information for targeted advertising purposes are also members of the Digital Advertising Alliance or the Network Advertising Initiative. Both of these organizations provide directions on how individuals can opt-out from targeted advertising by their members. You can find more information on these opt-out capabilities on www.aboutads.info and www.networkadvertising.org.
