Notice of Privacy Practices
By using our service and/or registering an account you agree to have read and understood our Website Privacy & Cookie Statement as set out below.
Contact Person for Data Protection
If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, in case of disclosure, rectification, blocking or erasure of data as well as in the case of revocation of granted consents please contact our Privacy Officer at ADCS Clinics, LLC, 151 Southhall Ln, Ste 300, Maitland, FL 32751.
Information You Provide
There are various processes to make an appointment, place online orders, request we contact you, apply for a position, join our loyalty programs, subscribe to our e-newsletter, and so forth. When you place an order, complete an account profile, or sign up to receive emails, we collect the information you provide. This may include your contact and payment information, and any other information necessary to provide service or to meet your request.
Purchasing Through our Website
Our website offers the possibility of convenient purchases. The conclusion of contract requires the entry of your invoice address and possibly your delivery address if different as well as a telephone number. Furthermore, you must choose between several payment options and possibly enter further data such as your credit card details.
A free customer account may be required for purchases. The access to your customer account is only possible after creating and entering a personal password; therefore, you should always treat your access information confidentially and close the browser window once you have ended your communication with us, particularly if you share the use of the computer with other persons.
Without your explicit consent, we solely use the data you provided to execute and process your order. If we advance the order, we might seek credit information to complete the process and use secure measures to collect this information.
Your personal data is transferred through the internet in an encrypted form during the ordering process. We use industry-standard technical and organizational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification, or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. However, no e-commerce solution, website, database, or system is completely secure or "hacker proof." You are also responsible for taking reasonable steps to protect your personal information against unauthorized disclosure or misuse.
Disclosure of Personal Data
We will only disclose personal data for the purpose of the execution of the order, for instance to group companies, logistics companies or payment providers, or if we are legally bound to do so.
Information We Collect
You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only collect an aggregate of data which includes age, gender, interests based on website browsing, language, location, new vs returning behavior, browser and OS, network, type of device, and cross-device usage. We also record and process this information to improve your online experience.
Cookies and Pixel Tags
A cookie is a small piece of computer code sent by a website and stored on the hard disk of your computer. A pixel tag (also known as a tracking pixel) is an embedded image on a website that may track and register a user's website session visit or website activity. Some cookies exist and collect data only for as long as your browser is open, during a single session. These help manage items added to your shopping bag. Some cookies are persistent, which means they last from visit to visit, even if you close your browser. These cookies, for example, help enable items in your cart to remain upon your return, provide an easier log in experience and in some cases personalize your shopping visit based on your interests.
Our website uses Google Analytics including the functions of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allows the activities on our website to be analyzed across devices (e.g., accessing it on a laptop and later on a tablet). This happens by assigning a pseudonym user ID to a user. However, no person-related data is shared with Google. Even when Universal Analytics adds additional Google Analytics functions, this does not mean that protection of privacy is reduced. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
In the event that you wish to avoid disclosure of any personal data, which could be shared through the tracing service of Google Inc. you are advised to make use of the deactivation-add-on as supplied by Google under “http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en". Additionally, you are also entitled to withdraw any pseudonym user profiles at any time for future effect, should these have been created.
Also, you can exercise your general right to object to the use of your data for marketing purposes at any time with effect for the future. In view of the discussion on the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" so that IP addresses are only processed further in abbreviated form to prevent them being linked directly.
You can choose to disable or block cookies in a variety of ways:
- Refer to the Privacy Section in your Internet Browser’s Settings via the Help Button. Please note, you will be unable to purchase on https://www.advancedderm.com/dermatology-shop if you disable cookies.
- To opt out of interest-based marketing with the above partners, please visit their privacy information with the links provided.
- To opt out of interest-based tracking on your mobile device, turn off ad tracking within your device settings.
Website Optimization Services
We have enabled Google Analytics to collect data to better understand and optimize website performance and enhance site usability for all our customers.
Advanced Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery uses third-party advertising companies to serve interest-based marketing. These companies compile information from various online sources to match user profiles with ads or information we believe will be most relevant, interesting and timely, based on that user profile. We also market on social networks and with new technology companies that may serve ads to you based on your interests.
Social Media Ads
We may display targeted ads to you through social media platforms. These ads are sent to groups of people who share traits such as likely commercial interests and demographics. For example, we may target customers who have expressed an interest in shopping for skin care products.
We also use the technical extension "Google Signals", which enables cross-device tracking. This makes it possible to assign an individual website visitor to different end devices. However, this only happens if the visitor has logged in to a Google service when visiting a website and has activated the option "personalized advertising" in his Google account settings at the same time. Even then, however, no personal data or user profiles are accessible to us; they remain anonymous to us.
If you do not want "Google Signals" to be used, you can disable the "Personalized advertising" option in your Google Account preferences.
Please note that when you opt out of receiving marketing that targets you based on interests, you will continue to receive generic non-personalized marketing.
Communications We Send
Emails and texts may be used for multiple reasons, including:
We do send out emails or texts for appointment confirmations and reminders. You may unsubscribe to receive confirmations and reminders using the communication channel where the message was delivered to opt-out of each method.
Marketing emails may be sent to inform you of new services, products, events and so forth. You can unsubscribe from marketing emails at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the email.
Customer Survey/Review Emails
We may separately send surveys, via e-mail or text, in order to collect opinions and feedback. You may also receive patient satisfaction surveys from a partnering firm via email or text. To opt-out of receiving survey or review emails, you may use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any survey email or the opt out option on text message.
Do Not Track Policy
Some browsers have a “do not track” feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. At this time, we do not respond to browser "do not track" signals, but we do provide you the option to opt out of interest-based advertising. To learn more about IBA or to opt-out of this type of advertising, visit the Network Advertising Initiative website or Digital Advertising Alliance website. Options you select are browser and device specific.
