We also use this personal information to provide you with information related to your account, the products, or services you purchased from us, to better understand your needs and interests, to improve our service, and to personalize communications.
Sharing Your Personal Information
3DISC reserves the right to transfer your personal information in connection with the sale or transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets. We do share your personal information with certain 3DISC business affiliates. For a description of these business affiliates, please refer to the information located at the bottom of this page. 3DISC may also disclose personal information to third parties without your consent for any of the following reasons: to comply with law, regulation, or court order, to cooperate with Government investigations, to help prevent fraud, or to enforce or protect the rights of 3DISC or its subsidiaries.
Your Choices about Receiving Email
3DISC may send you email about your orders or your account and in response to your questions. 3DISC and its subsidiaries may also send you email with information and/or special offers about products and services that may be of interest to you.
Under most circumstances, we will give you an opportunity to let us know your preference regarding the receiving of promotional emails. This option applies to promotional emails only, as we may find it necessary to send you emails relating to your account, order, product, or pricing changes.
We provide you with the opportunity to update or delete certain Personal Information and to opt-out of having your Personal Information used or disclosed for certain purposes. For example, you may
- correct or update your Personal Information;
- change your preferences for certain communications;
- request that we do not share your Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes; or
- request access to your Personal Information.
Because we plan our communications in advance, it may take up to several weeks for your request to become effective. If you continue to receive our communications after expressing an opt-out preference, please let us know so that we can investigate the situation. We will, however, continue to send transaction-based communications if you place an order, request a sample, request customer support, register a product, or make similar requests.
Please be aware that if you do not allow us to collect and use your Personal Information, we may not be able to deliver certain products, promotions, and offerings to you.
We may also collect and record information about what you viewed on our website. We may use this type of information and combine it with your personal information to help customize our future interactions with you. In doing so, we hope to provide better service to you by tailoring our communications to match your interests—to give you more of what you want and less of what you don’t want.
Protecting Your Information
However, while we strive to protect your personal information, you must also take steps to protect your information. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information while you are on the Internet.
Some of our sites may enable you to participate in public services such as discussion boards, chats, and live events. Please use discretion when posting personal information about yourself when using these services. Be aware that when you disclose personal information at these sites, such as your name, member name, email address, etc., the information may be collected and used by others to send unsolicited emails. The services are open to the public, and what you post there can be seen by anyone and is not protected. 3DISC cannot control the comments that you may receive while you participate in these services. You may find other people’s comments to be offensive, harmful, or inaccurate.
Some 3DISC web pages contain links to and from other websites. 3DISC is not responsible for the privacy practices of those sites. 3DISC encourages you to ascertain the privacy practices of those websites.
Consent to Processing Outside Home Country
By using our sites or providing information to 3DISC on or through our Sites, you understand and consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and retention of information in the United States and other countries and territories, for the purposes set forth in this Policy. You hereby consent to the collection, use, disclosure, and retention by 3DISC of your personal data as described under this Policy, including but not limited to the transfer of your personal data between 3DISC’s third party business partners, affiliates, and subsidiaries in accordance with this Policy. For further certainty, any consent relating to a right to transfer information referred to in this paragraph shall be deemed to include your consent to the transfer of the applicable personal data to a jurisdiction which may provide a different level of privacy protection than that available in your own country.
