ABOUT INFORMATION COLLECTION

Like many websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate with us via e-mail and/or feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, etc.). Any personal information collected through the website will be process in accordance with applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features or to participate in a particular activity. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional. If you submit any personal information relating to another individual to us, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not want to provide this information, please do not utilize these features of the website.

AUTOMATIC/PASSIVE INFORMATION COLLECTION

The website of Paradigm Spine LLC collects a series of data and information when a user or automated system calls up the website. This data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected information may include

  1. the browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers),
  4. the sub-websites,
  5. the date and time of access to the Internet site,
  6. an Internet protocol address (IP address),
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and
  8. any other similar data and information.

Paradigm Spine LLC analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject. Depending on a user's country and the information involved, this information may or may not be personal information.

COOKIES AND SIMILAR TOOLS

The Internet pages of Paradigm Spine LLC use cookies and internet tags. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Internet tags (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the Web site server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor's computer. This site uses Internet tags. Tags may have also been placed on online advertisements that bring people to the site. This site may collect or seek personally identifiable information through these tags.

Through the use of cookies and internet tags, Paradigm Spine LLC can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the use of these tools.

By means of these tools, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. These tools allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. For example. a website user that uses cookies would not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

If you prefer not to receive cookies from this website, configure your internet browser to refuse all cookies from this and other websites that you may visit. This will provide you with more control over the acceptance of cookies on your computer. You may also delete cookies already storied on your computer using your internet browser's settings. Please note, however, that certain portions of the website may function slowly or not at all if you choose to refuse or delete cookies. By using this website and not disabling cookies, you consent to their use.
