Privacy & Security
International Dermatology (“IDR”, “we” or “us”) is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. From time to time, we collect individualized information from users in order to process orders or otherwise customize and fulfill our customer needs. This may happen on several different areas of our website and all data and information adheres to the following guidelines for privacy and usage.
When purchasing products from International Dermatology Research, we request certain personally identifiable information from you on our order pages. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number, and expiration date) otherwise we cannot process your order. We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we will use this information to contact you. Also, please rest assured that all purchases and credit card transactions sent via International Dermatology Research are private and secure. We use the latest technologies of encryption available from trusted web retail providers.
How We Use Your Personal Information
We collect personal information not only to fulfill your order, but also to make our site more intuitive and simple for you to use. We primarily use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers’ preferences and improving the customer experience. However, with your permission, we may also use your information to contact you for account and promotional purposes. We will only share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, processing credit card payments, providing customer service, and other similar functions. Such companies may have access to your personal information in order to perform their roles, but they may not disclose your information for any other purposes.
We do not sell, rent or license any of our customer’s personal information
We may share aggregate web site usage information with marketing partners and affiliates, however, this information does not identify individual users and is only of statistical relevance. For instance, a web traffic report may show that our site receives more orders on Thursday than any other day of the week, and while your order would be among the orders that make that statement true, partners and affiliates will not have access to your personal order information nor the personal information of other customers from that data set. We reserve the right to disclose your personal information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served against us.
The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our site, please contact us as indicated below.
