Our information practices depend on how you interact with our Services and which webpages you visit. In addition to visitors to our Website, this Policy applies to our business customers who are California residents and representatives, employees, or contact persons of our current, prospective, or former business customers, business partners, service providers, or contractors which include but are not limited to dental providers.
Except as otherwise noted below, this Policy applies to the Personal Information that Company collects related to:

Additional Notices. Depending on how you interact or engage with us, we may provide you with other privacy notices with additional details about our privacy practices. For example, this Policy does not apply to job applicants and candidates who apply for employment with us, or to employees in the context of our working relationship with them. This Policy also does not apply to the extent we process personal information, as a service provider or processor, on behalf of our business clients. Our processing of business clients’ personal information is subject to the terms of our contracts with each business client, who is the business or controller of such personal information that we process on their behalf. Additionally, protected health information, as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, that we collect, receive, or otherwise maintain about you as a business associate to a covered entity will be covered by the covered entity’s Notice of Privacy Practices and our business associate agreement with that covered entity.

10. LOCATED IN THE UNITED STATES
The laws and regulations in different countries impose requirements on the Internet and data protection. The servers that make the Website available worldwide are located in the USA. All matters relating to the Website are governed by the laws of the State of California. Please note that any information you provide will be transferred directly to the USA, and by using the Website or providing us your Personal Information, you authorize this transfer.
11. REVISIONS TO OUR POLICY
We will continue to review and revise our privacy practices and policies as our technology, services, and use of data evolves. We will not retroactively use or share data in a manner that is materially different from this policy without first providing you notice.

12. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
If you are a California resident, you may have rights to the information we collect that identifies, describes, or is reasonably capable of being associated with you (“Personal Information”).
As a provider of dental lab products and services, we do not sell products or provide services directly to patients. Instead, we receive patient data directly from dental providers in the course of providing our products and services to the dental providers. To the extent you are a dental patient and we received your information from your dental provider, you do not currently have rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, as amended by the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (“CCPA”). Your dental provider may be required to provide you certain privacy rights under federal and state law. If you would like a copy of your privacy rights under federal and state law, please contact your dental provider directly.
To the extent you are a resident of California who is not a dental patient, you may have the following rights:
Right to Request More Information
You may have the right to request information about how we have processed your Personal Information, including:
- The categories of Personal Information we collected;
- The categories of sources from which we collected that information;
- Our business or commercial purpose for collecting that information;
- The categories of third parties with whom we shared that information; and
- The specific pieces of Personal Information we collected about you.
Right to Delete
You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Information we collected about you. Not all requests to delete can be fulfilled. If we are unable to comply with your request, we will provide a response explaining why your data cannot be deleted.
Right to Correct
You have the right to request that we correct inaccuracies in your Personal Information.
Right to Opt-Out of Sales/Sharing
California residents may have the right to opt-out of “sales” or “sharing” of their Personal Information under the CCPA. CCPA defines a "sale" as disclosing or making Personal Information available to a third-party in exchange for monetary or other valuable consideration. CCPA also defines “sharing” as disclosing or making available Personal Information to a third party for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising. While we do not disclose Personal Information to third parties in exchange for monetary compensation, we may “sell” or “share” (as defined by the CCPA) personal information, such as identifiers and internet and electronic network activity information to third-party ad networks. We do so in order to improve and evaluate our advertising campaigns and better reach customers and prospective customers with more relevant ads and content.
To opt out of the sharing or sale of Personal Information collected through advertising cookies, please click on the “Do Not Sell or Share My Personal Information” Link on the bottom of the website homepage. Please note that submitting an opt out request will only opt you out of disclosures that are considered “sales” or “sharing” under the CCPA, but it will not opt out of other disclosures, such as to our service providers.
You may also opt-out of “sales” and “sharing” of your Personal Information through the use of an opt-out preference signal. If our website detects that your browser or device is transmitting an opt-out preference signal, such as the “global privacy control” or “GPC” signal, we will opt that browser or device out of cookies on our website that result in a “sale” or “sharing” of your Personal Information. Please note, if you come to our website from a different device or a different browser on the same device, you will need to opt out, or use an opt-out preference signal, for that browser and/or device as well.
We do not sell or share sensitive Personal Information, nor do we sell or share any Personal Information about individuals who we know are under sixteen (16) years old. We do not provide your Personal Information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes.
Right to Limit the Use and Disclosure of Sensitive Personal Information
We do not use or disclose sensitive Personal Information for any purpose that would require us to provide you with a right to limit the use of your sensitive Personal Information under the CCPA.
Right to Non-Discrimination
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of the rights described in this section.
Exercising Your Rights
If you want to exercise any of these rights, please use one of the following methods:
Submit a data privacy request online
Before we can respond to your request, we must first verify your identity using your Personal Information. If we are unable to verify your identity after a good faith attempt, we may deny the request and, if so, will explain the basis for the denial.
Response Timing and Format
We will endeavor to respond to your request within forty-five (45) days of receipt. If we require more time (up to 90 days total), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. If we cannot respond to your request, either fully or partially, we will also explain our reasons. For data access requests, we will deliver the data in a readily, useable format. Where permitted under the CCPA, we may charge you a reasonable fee to process your request.
Designating an Authorized Agent
You may designate someone to submit requests and act on your behalf (an “Authorized Agent”). To do so, the Authorized Agent must submit a data privacy request using this form and provide us with written consent signed by you to act on your behalf. We may also ask you directly to verify that you have authorized your authorized agent to act on your behalf.
13. CHANGES TO THIS NOTICE
We will continue to review and revise our privacy practices and policies as our technology, services, and use of data evolves. We will not retroactively use or share data in a manner that is materially different from this policy without first providing you notice. This Notice is reviewed and updated annually, and we will use reasonable means to inform you of any changes.
