Privacy

All of us at T.P. Orthodontics guard your personal information as zealously as we guard our own. When you visit a T.P. Orthodontics Web site, you can be assured that your confidential information will remain private and not be shared with anyone without your permission.

The T.P. Orthodontics Web sites do not collect personally identifiable information regarding the users of its Web site unless such information is voluntarily provided by the user. We will not disclose your individual identity or personally identifiable information without your prior consent except as required by law. The Web sites of T.P. Orthodontics do not contain or collect any personally identifying information, but will collect information regarding the usage patterns associated with the user's personal computer.

Information tracked is primarily used to improve and update the site and to provide site-traffic data, and is only made available on an aggregate basis for the sole purpose of providing information to the creators of this Web site. Voluntarily disclosed personally identifiable information may be used to track purchase orders, shipping requests, and the processing of your orders.

This policy does not protect information you post to any online bulletin board, chat room, links to other Web sites or other public forum within our site. You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personal information (e-mail address, medical conditions, etc.) on bulletin boards or in chat areas, that information can be collected and used by others and may result in unsolicited messages from other participants or parties.

We use the best security technology available.

Customers using credit cards at TP's Web site can be confident that their sensitive information is being transmitted safely and securely. TP has installed a Secure Server ID which is displayed as the seal here. What you see after double clicking on the Verisign logo is TP's digital certificate. A digital certificate is the electronic equivalent of a business license. In physical transactions, the challenges of identification, authentication, and privacy are solved with physical marks, such as seals or signatures. In electronic transactions, the equivalent of this seal must be coded into a digital certificate. This seal proves that all data exchanges with our server are encrypted and/or altered.

By using advanced cryptography, TP has worked with the Verisign company to create the most secure communications channel for customers placing orders over the Internet to T.P. Orthodontics.

This is just another example of how TP intends to develop our online presence, with the same principles that have guided us for nearly 60 years -- trust, security, service and, innovation.

We protect your personal information.
