This Privacy Policy sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interacts with our website. By accessing and any related subdomains (the “Site”), you acknowledge and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described herein. Please read this policy in conjunction with our Website Terms of Use.

  2. Collection and Use of Your Information

    Caremoli USA may collect certain information from and about its users, including personal information.

    Automatically Collected Information. When you visit the Site, we may automatically track, collect and store information in order to administer the Site and analyze its usage. Examples of this automatically-collected information include:

    • Your internet protocol address
    • The kind of browser or computer you use
    • Number and type of links you click within the site
    • State or country from which you accessed the site
    • Date and time of your visit
    • Name of your internet service provider
    • Web page from which you linked to the Site
    • Pages you viewed on the Site

    Use of Cookies. Caremoli USA may use “cookies” to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. A cookie is uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

    Caremoli USA reserves the right to share site statistics with its business partners and affiliates, but generally does not allow other companies to place cookies on the Site unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into the Site a third-party site that relies on third-party cookies).

    You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our website.

    Your Personal Information. Registration with the Site may be required in order to use certain aspects of the Site’s functionality. If you register with the Site, we may require that you provide certain some personal information, such as your name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information (including financial information) (collectively, “Personal Information”).

    Caremoli USA does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13. If we become aware that a user under the age of 13 has registered or is attempting to register, we will notify the user that he or she is not eligible for registration. We will then expunge any related Personal Information from our records.

    Use of Web Beacons or GIF Files. The Site may contain electronic images known as web beacons – sometimes also called single-pixel gifs – that allow Caremoli USA to count users who have visited the Site and to deliver services. Caremoli USA may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

    Some of these web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site.
