Basic Confidentiality Policy
It is our policy that personal information, such as your name, postal and email address, and telephone number, remains private and confidential. The personal information you provide is stored in a secure location, and is accessible only by designated personnel.
If you also indicate on our site that you would like to be added to our mailing database, your personal information will be added to the appropriate mailing list. If, at any time, you change your mind and would like to remove your name from our mailing list, or update your personal information, please contact us at (504) 891-3937 or email us. Please note that we do not share email addresses or other personal information with third parties.
No Release of Information to Third Parties
Personal information will not be released to third parties except if release is required by law, by court order, or by judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings. There are no other circumstances under which we will provide personal information to third parties, nor will such information be sold by Southern Eye Bank.
No Computer Tracking of Identifiable Information
Our site does not track, collect, or distribute personal information about its visitors. It does recognize the home server of visitors, but not email addresses. For example, we can tell which Internet Service Provider our visitors use, but not the names, addresses, or other information about our visitors that would allow us to identify them individually. Our site is able to recognize the web address of a site a user was visiting immediately before accessing our site. This information is used only for internal purposes.
Our site tracks general information about visits to our site for the purpose of analysis. For example, we compile statistics that show the daily number of visitors to our site, the daily requests we receive for particular files on our site, and what countries those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used internally to better provide services to the public. For example, we may use this information to target relevant content and advertising to our site’s visitors. However, these statistics contain no personal information.
The cookies on our site do not contain any personally identifying information, but enable us to improve the site so that it is easier to use. Cookies also enable us to display online advertisements based on a visitor’s past visits to our site. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can usually change your browser’s preferences to prevent this.
