If you did not give express permission, or you would like to remove your permission, you may suppress all of your information by sending notification to us at [email protected]
1.4. Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Technology Used to Collect Information. Like many commercial websites, we may analyze how visitors use our Website through what is known as “cookie” technology. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your computer when you access the Website and allows us to recognize you each time you visit the Website. We may use cookies to: (i) allow you to use the Website without having to re-enter your user name and password; (ii) enhance or personalize your Website usage and shopping experience; (iii) monitor Website usage; (iv) manage the Website; and (v) improve the Website and our products and services. If you choose, you can set your browser to reject cookies or you can manually delete individual or all of the cookies on your computer by following your browser’s help file directions. However, if your browser is set to reject cookies or you manually delete cookies, you may have some trouble accessing and using some of the pages and features that are currently on our Website, or that we may put on our Website in the future.
We may also use web beacons on the Website, in our emails, and in our advertisements on other websites. Web beacons are tiny graphic images that are used to collect information about your Website visit, such as the pages you view and the features you use, as well as information about whether you open and/or act upon one of our emails or advertisements. We may also collect the URL of the website you visited immediately before coming to the Website. Web beacons help us analyze the Website visitors’ behavior and measure the effectiveness of the Website and our advertising. We may work with service providers, such as Google Analytics, that help us track, collect and analyze this information.
Shapiro MD does not use cookies or web beacons to collect or store any Personal Identifying Information about you.  We may, however, combine the non-personal information we collect through cookies, web beacons, and other technologies with other information we have collected from you.
1.5 Computer Profiles. We may also collect and accumulate other anonymous data which will help us understand and analyze the Internet experience of our visitors. For instance, Shapiro MD may accumulate visitor data relating to referring domain names, the type of browsers used, operating system software, screen resolutions, color capabilities, browser plug-ins, language settings, cookie preferences, search engine keywords and JavaScript enablement. When you provide us with Personal Identifying Information, we are able to use such visitor data to identify you when you visit the Website.
1.6. No Information Collected from Children. Shapiro MD will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of eighteen (18). If Shapiro MD obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of eighteen (18), that information will be immediately and permanently deleted from its database. Because it does not collect such information, Shapiro MD has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Shapiro MD has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA"). Shapiro MD encourages parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and instruct their children to never provide their personal information to the site without parental permission.

When the credit card information is submitted to Shapiro MD, such information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. Shapiro MD will use the credit card information for purposes of processing and completing purchase transactions, and the credit card information will be disclosed to third parties only as necessary to complete the purchase transaction and process payment or any refund. If future orders are automatically shipped, Shapiro MD shall retain credit card information in a secured location with restricted access.

4. Security.
We maintain reasonable and appropriate measures designed to store information we collect in a secure manner.

During your online Shapiro MD experience, you may encounter links to the sites of our business partners or to other Third Party websites that are not affiliated with Shapiro MD, and which may have privacy policies that differ from our own. Once you leave the Website or are redirected to a Third Party website or application, you may no longer be governed by this Privacy Policy or the ShapiroMD.com Terms of Use and Terms & Conditions of Sale. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other businesses or other Websites, and we encourage you to read Third Party website policies before disclosing any personal information. Please contact those websites directly if you have any questions about their privacy policies or other terms.
6. Interest Based Advertising.
We may partner with third-party service providers to serve ads on our behalf on non- affiliated third party sites. These third party websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their own behalf, sometimes use technology to send, directly to your browser, advertisements that appear on our Website. They may also use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect anonymous information in order to measure the effectiveness of their ads and to personalize advertising content. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information we or the online advertising network serving the ad collect about your online activities here and elsewhere over time. For example, anonymous information collected across multiple sites that you visit over time may enable the ad network to predict your preferences and show you ads that are most likely to be of interest to you.
To opt out of these types of ads, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) for information about how to opt-out of interest-based advertising by their members. See http://www.networkadvertising.org for general information about the NAI and http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp for the opt-out page.  You may also visit http://www.aboutads.info/consumers/ to learn about interest based advertising and how to opt-out from online behavioral ads served by some or all participating companies.
Note that electing to opt-out will not stop advertising from appearing in your browser or applications. It may make the ads you see less relevant to your interests. In addition, note that if you use a different browser or erase cookies from your browser, you may need to renew your opt-out choice.
7. Foreign use of the Website.
To the extent that you are accessing the Website while domiciled outside of the United States, you acknowledge that the Personal Identifying Information you are providing Shapiro MD is collected and stored in the United States and therefore consent to the transfer of information from your domiciled country to, and storage of the information outside of your domiciled country  in, the United States.
