In very similar ways to other commercial Web sites, our Web site utilizes a standard technology called “cookies” (see explanation below, “What Are Cookies?”) and web server log files to collect information about how our Web site is used.

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you view a Web site of any nature, that web site’s computer asks your computer for approval to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a Web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. It’s standard for web browsers to accept cookies. Nevertheless, if you prefer not to receive cookies, you may alter the configuration of your web browser to decline cookies thus deliver no information.

Your personal information may be provided to a different dental service provider if you request that information to be provided, or the treating dentist requests that information to be provided and it is relevant to your treatment.

We may also use or disclose your personal information if required or authorised by law or a court/tribunal order.
