Harris Dental respects the privacy of our patients. Any and all information collected at this site, within the Harris Dental Commerce Network Server (HDCNS), is held with the utmost care and will not be shared without consent.
What Information do we collect? How do we use it?
When registering to view images from our site, Harris Dental may need to collect the registrant’s name, email address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill orders and provide notification of order status. When entering a contest, sweepstakes or other promotional feature, Harris Dental may ask for the entrant’s name, address and email address in order to administer the contest and notify winners. Harris Dental may use the information we collect to notify our patients about important functionality changes to the Web sites and/or special offers. For any registrants who does not want to receive this information, please refer to the detailed instructions included in every offer.
How do we protect customer information?
Patients who register through the Harris Dental secure systems are shopping on a secure server, which encrypts all of the patient’s personal information including name, address and credit card number. Encryption ensures that no one can access or use personal information in an unauthorized manner. A clear opt-out option is available on any customer-service or client e-mail Harris Dental sends. Harris Dental has made an investment in protecting its patient’s information utilizing the following technologies:
Firewalls allow the use of authenticated access and can prevent certain types of traffic from entering the private network. Customizing the firewall according to the network topology is essential to having a useful firewall protection mechanism.
SSL (Secure Socket Layers)
Because we accept sensitive information from end-users such as passwords and credit card numbers, Harris Dental’s site uses SSL. This logic encrypts the data being sent to the server from the browser using high-level encryption technology. Once the data is received from patients on the Harris Dental Network, it may be required that the data be maintained for a certain period of time inside our private network. Encrypting the data means it cannot be viewed in plain text.
What about cookies?
“Cookies” are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive. Harris Dental’s cookies are used only to identify the patient, not to identify any specific patient traits. This allows us to maintain consistency in the shopping basket and enable a more pleasant shopping experience.
Harris Dental Privacy Guarantee
Harris Dental will never rent or sell our patient’s information to third parties.
At Harris Dental, we believe in permission-based, email marketing. That’s why:

- every email served by Harris Dental on behalf of our clients contains an opportunity for the patients to decline future communications.
- patient-specific and network-wide suppression files are maintained at Harris Dental to ensure that only those patients interested in receiving communications do so.
- at any time, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, a patient may email Harris Dental customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask to be removed from future emails.
