2. Types of Information We May Collect
Our Website collects this information: (a) directly from you when you provide it to us in connection with a request for a product, service, or information; and (b) automatically as you navigate through the Website.
In some cases, this information is personally identifiable information. Our definition of personally identifiable information includes any information that may be used to specifically identify or contact you, such as your name, postal and email addresses, phone number, etc. If we combine any non-personal information with personally identifiable information, we treat such information as personally identifiable.
Information Automatically Collected: A few of the methods and/or avenues that may be used to collect information on the Website include, without limitation, the following (and subsequent technology and methods hereafter developed):
IP Addresses. An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer, mobile or other computing device whenever you are surfing the Internet. Web servers (computers that “serve up” web pages) automatically identify your computer or other computing device by its IP address. When users request pages from our Website, our servers may log their IP addresses. We may collect IP addresses for the following purposes, among others: system administration, to report non-personal aggregate information to others, and to track the use of our Website. IP addresses are considered non-personal information and may also be shared as provided above.
Email Communications. If you send us an email with questions or comments, we may use your personally identifiable information to respond to your questions or comments, and we may save your questions or comments for future reference. For security reasons, we do not recommend that you send non-public personal information. In certain instances, we may provide you with the option to set your preferences for receiving email communications from us; that is, agree to some communications but not others. We reserve the right to send you transactional emails such as customer service communications.
3. Use of Collected Information
The information collected through our Website is generally used to fulfill your requests for our products and services and to respond to your inquiries about our offerings. We may also use this information to later contact you for a variety of reasons, such as customer service, offering you other products or services that we believe may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you about content or other information you have posted or shared with us via our Website.
- where we need it to perform a contract with you (e.g., to fulfill an order);
- where the processing is in our legitimate interests (which include the purposes listed, above); or
- if we otherwise have your consent.

5. Your Rights
If you would like to access, amend, erase, export, or object to or restrict the processing of, personally identifiable information about you, you may submit a request to [email protected] We will promptly review all such requests in accordance with applicable laws.
Depending on where you live, you may have a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority or other regulatory agency if you believe that we have violated any of the rights concerning Personal Information. We encourage you to first reach out to us at [email protected], so we have an opportunity to address your concerns directly before you do so.
6. Keeping Your Information Secure
We have implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. Please be advised, however, that while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information. In the unfortunate event that your “personally identifiable information” (as the term or similar terms are defined by any applicable law requiring notice upon a security breach) is compromised, we may notify you by e-mail (at our sole and absolute discretion) to the last e-mail address you have provided us in the most expedient time reasonable under the circumstances; however, delays in notification may occur while we take necessary measures to determine the scope of the breach and restore reasonable integrity to the system as well as for the legitimate needs of law enforcement if notification would impede a criminal investigation. From time to time we evaluate new technology for protecting information, and when appropriate, we upgrade our information security systems.
7. Retention of Personally Identifiable Information
Our site is intended for adults 18 years of age and older with surgical instrument needs. The features, programs, promotions, services, and other aspects of our Website that require the submission of personally identifiable information are not intended for anyone under 18 years of age. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children. If you are a parent or guardian of a child and believe he or she has disclosed personally identifiable information to us please contact us at [email protected] If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information.
