LASIK Guider takes your privacy seriously. This privacy policy describes what personal information we collect and how we use it. See this privacy policy primer to learn more about privacy policies in general.

Routine Information Collection

Our web server, like all web servers, will automatically track basic information about our visitors. This information includes, but is not limited to, internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages.

None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes. We use Google Analytics for this same purpose.

You can visit our website without revealing any information about yourself. Our site is not set up to track, collect or distribute personal information about you (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and product preferences) unless you voluntarily provide this information, such as when you ask us to e-mail a friend or you provide this information when you fill out a "contact us" form.

How We Use Information

We automatically use electronic records to compile statistics about how collectively our visitors interact with our website. These statistics contain no personal information.

On certain pages, you may have the opportunity to provide personally identifiable information. When you voluntarily provide us with information about yourself, you consent to our use of it in accordance with this policy.

We use the personally identifiable information only for clearly stated purposes. For example, we may use your email address to respond to a question you have sent us. We never add email addresses to lists for purposes of additional communication, unless you have asked us to.

Your personally identifiable information will be provided to third parties only at your request. Examples of this include but are not limited to:

(1) We may provide your medical question to a doctor for a response;
(2) If you use a feedback form in an advertising section, the information will be sent to the advertiser;
(3) If you provide your personal information for purposes of a product rebate or value-added service, it will be provided to a third party for fulfillment.

We may share this information in aggregate form with our advertisers, but we never supply without your permission personal information such as: "Diana Jones wears contact lenses."

Unless otherwise required by law or if pertinent to a judicial or governmental investigation, personally identifiable information is not shared with other organizations or persons. Should we ever need to make an exception, we will say so at the point where you are giving the information.

Information submitted or provided to us by a website user or any person or entity regarding us or our products or services, including but not limited to ideas for new products or services or modifications to existing products or services, shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and we shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose and distribute such information to others without limitation or attribution.

Cookies and Web Beacons

Cookies are small text files that websites store on your computer's hard drive. When they are supplied from our site, they may contain information you have given us and are intended to be a convenience to you. They may enable the functionality of certain interactive features. They also may anonymously record how often you visit our website, or what pages you looked at.

Where necessary, LASIK Guider uses cookies to store information about a visitor's preferences and history in order to better serve the visitor and/or present the visitor with customized content.

Advertising partners and other third parties may also use cookies, scripts and/or web beacons to track visitors to our site in order to display advertisements and other useful information. Such tracking is done directly by the third parties through their own servers and is subject to their own privacy policies.

Controlling Your Privacy

The best option is to disable or enable cookies on a per-site basis. Consult your browser documentation for instructions on how to block cookies and other tracking mechanisms.
