Welcome to http://ark-surgical.com (the “Site”). This Site is owned by Ark Surgical Ltd. (“Ark Surgical”, “We”, “Our”). Ark Surgical respects the privacy of the visitors and/or users of its website and is committed to protecting its user’s privacy (“User” or “You”).
About Children. This Site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via this Site from visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to websites.
Information You Provide. Some areas of this Site may ask you to submit personally identifiable information, i.e. information that is unique to You, such as your name, e-mail, profile information and any such other personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) in order for You to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing, or resume submission) or to participate in a particular activity (such as sweepstakes or other promotions). We collect such Personal Information from You when You voluntarily provide such Personal Information to us and via the use of the Site by You. You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.
Passive Information Collection
This Site may use and combine such passively collected anonymous information to provide better service to Site visitors, customize the Site based on your preferences, compile and analyze statistics and trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Site for your use. Such information is not combined with Personal information collected elsewhere on the Site unless You have consented.
More Information about Cookies
A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your web browser that helps the site remember information about You and your preferences.
“Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve navigation, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the site “remembers” previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters and blocks subsequent changes), and collect aggregate statistical information on the site. They are erased once you exit your web browser or otherwise turn off your computer.
“Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (such as passwords), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis. Persistent cookies placed by this Site on your computer may hold personally identifiable information, but only if You have registered or have otherwise consented to the retention of personally identifiable information you have provided at the Site. Otherwise, Our Site’s server only knows that an unidentified visitor with your cookie has returned to the Site. You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. To learn more about cookies and how to specify your preferences, please search for “cookie” in the “Help” portion of your browser.
A site may use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so You can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). The IP address can be used to diagnose problems with a server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to a site, and administer and improve the site.
“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Tags may be placed both on online advertisements that bring people to the site and on different pages of the site. Such tags indicate how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.
“Navigational data” (log files, server logs, and clickstream data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.
Use and Disclosure of Information
Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this Site to improve the content of Our Site, to customize the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to You (if You have requested it), for Our marketing and research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, We may make full use of all information acquired through this Site that is not in personally identifiable form. If You provide Personal Information to this Site, We may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We may disclose Personal Information You provide via this Site to third parties but only:
For avoidance of all doubt, any other non-personal information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists
Security. This Site takes commercially reasonable steps to protect Personal Information as you transmit it to Our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free and there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet (In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure) and that there is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart Our security systems. As a result, we cannot ensure or warrant the security and privacy of your Personal Information or other content You transmit using the Site, and You do so at your own risk. We encourage You to exercise discretion regarding the Personal Information You choose to disclose.
