The information we collect and how we use it
Geneoscopy is the sole owner of the information collected on this website. We only have access to and collect the information you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact. If you complete a web form on our website, we may use your contact information to tell you about our services or news about Geneoscopy. You may opt out of certain promotional messages. However, certain communications are mandatory regarding our services, such as service messages, critical notices, or legally mandated notices. We will not sell, trade, or rent this information to anyone.
We may automatically collect and store certain information using cookies and similar technology when using our website. This information may include details of how you used our website, such as your navigation paths, pages visited, average time spent on a page, search queries, internet protocol (IP) address, browser type or language, the date and time of your request, and referral URL. Some of this data may uniquely identify your browser, mobile device, or operating system. We use anonymous information, such as web pages viewed, to look at trends to provide a better website experience and gather demographic information for aggregate use. This information does not personally identify you and is used in a general way to help us improve our website.
Certain pages on our website may allow you to leave comments. To leave your comments, you may be asked to create a profile that includes personally identifiable information and a screen name – the screen name may appear on our website.
Certain pages on our website may allow you to share the content of that page using social media or email. If you share content from our site using your social media account, your unique social media alias related to any comments you post will be displayed just like in your social media account. Likewise, any content shared via our email-sharing app will contain the email address you enter in the app. We do not access any other information from your social media or email accounts, and we do not directly post or share anything through your social media and email accounts.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children. In specific forms where we may ask for information about children, we take steps to protect the privacy of those children by making reasonable efforts to ensure that a parent has entered or authorized the collection of the child’s personal information.
We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and securely transmitted to us. While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline.
