Richmond Laser Skin Care and Wellness Centre Privacy Policy

Welcome to www.richmondlaser.ca. This site is owned by Richmond Laser Skin Care and Wellness Centre. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site and certain related services. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using, or submitting information, to this site. This site is intended for use by residents of British Columbia.

Your Consent

By using this site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Active Information Collection

Like many web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail and contact us forms. Some of the information that you submit may be Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Personally Identifiable Information is information that can be explicitly used to identify and/or contact you as an individual. This includes information like your real name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card number, etc.

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features, such as newsletter subscription, or to participate in a particular activity, for example our promotions and events. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required from you.

Passive Information Collection

As you navigate through a web site, certain information can be passively collected using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses and cookies.

This site may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally non-personally identifiable information, because is most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to report aggregate information, and administer and improve the site.

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a web site sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. “Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information. “Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g. password), helping to determine what areas of the web site visitors find most valuable, and customizing the web site based on your preferences. This site uses session cookies but does not use persistent cookies.

Use and Disclosure of Information

Except as otherwise sated, we may use your information to improve the content of our site, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you, for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide Personally Identifiable Information to this site, we may disclose such information to other affiliates that agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties, located in British Columbia and/or any other country, but only

(i) to service provider we use to support our business (e.g. technical support, financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy;
(ii) in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or
(iii) where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is in personally identifiable form.

Remember that the information provided by this site is for general background purposes and is not intended to be used in connection with, or as a substitute for, medical diagnosis or treatment by a trained professional. You should always consult a physician about any skin and health care questions you may have.

Access and Correction

To keep your Personally Identifiable Information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct Personally Identifiable Information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.

Security

We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.

Links to Other Web Sites

This site may contain links or references to other web sites. Please be aware that we do not control other web sites and that, in any case, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those web sites. Therefore, we encourage you to read the privacy policy of every web site you visit.

Other Terms
