We do not obtain personal information (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, etc.) about you when you visit the Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today Website unless you choose voluntarily to provide such information to us. If you identify yourself by sending an e-mail, by using a form like “Contact Us,” or by registering to receive information from us, there are a few things you should know.

Our policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Other sites which you may be directed to or linked to through the use of our site may have their own policies and practices, which we do not control, and thus are not addressed by this policy. To the extent that you disclose your information to other parties, such as other members or third party suppliers of products and services that link to our site, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the personal information you disclose to them since we do not control the privacy policies of third parties.

Due to the existing regulatory and technical environment, we cannot guarantee that all of your communications and other personally identifiable information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Policy.  For example, we may be required by law to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access your transmissions or communications. Further, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, although we use industry standard practices to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personally identifiable information or communications will remain private.
