Information We May Collect About You
The information we collect via our website is used to improve the content of ghds.org and advance the Greater Houston Dental Society’s mission. For each visitor to our website, our
web server automatically recognizes only the user’s domain name, but not the email address,
where possible. We collect the domain name and internet protocol (IP) address of visitors to our site, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, user-specific information on what pages users access, and information volunteered by users, including from surveys, purchases and/or registrations. We also may collect the email addresses of those who communicate with us via email.
How We May Use Information We Collect
The GHDS, its subsidiaries and affiliates may use your contact information to alert you to new
products and services, events and other opportunities.
With Respect to Your Email Address
We have instituted reviews and opt-out capabilities to ensure that you do not receive unwanted email from the GHDS. We do not give or sell email addresses to any entity outside
the GHDS, including state or local dental societies.
You may also contact us if you believe your information is being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected.
