Privacy Policy


Last revised and effective as of September 11, 2018

PRIVACY STATEMENT

The following statement explains Cynosure’s policy regarding any personal information supplied to Cynosure when you visit this Site.

Cynosure recognizes that visitors to this Site and with whom we conduct business value their privacy. Often, however, the collection of personal information is necessary and desirable both for the visitor and Cynosure. Thus, in some circumstances Cynosure may request personal information from you, like your name, e-mail address, company name, title, address and/or telephone number. Your response to these inquiries is strictly voluntary. Once submitted, Cynosure may use this information to customize your experience on this Site and for other business purposes, such as sending you information about Cynosure and Cynosure’s products as well as the products and services of our Corporate Affiliates.

We generally disclose information we gather from you through the Site to the following types of third parties and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Statement or as specifically authorized by you.

Laws and Legal Rights.

We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be violating any contract with us, including our Terms and Conditions, to detect fraud, for assistance with a delinquent account, or to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the Site or the general public.

Third Parties Generally.

We may provide to third parties non-personally identifiable information, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Site. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who use the Site, the demographic breakdown of our users of the Site, or the products and/or services purchased using the Site and the vendors of such products and services. In addition to the above, when users use our Site, third parties (including analytics providers) may directly collect information about our users’ online activities over time and across different websites. The third parties to which we may provide or who may independently directly collect information may include providers of products or services (including analytics service providers, vendors (including providers of hosting services and cloud storage) and website tracking services), merchants, affiliates and other actual or potential commercial partners, sponsors, licensees, researchers and other similar parties.

Please note in particular that the Site uses Google Analytics, including its data reporting features. Information collected by Google Analytics includes but is not limited to web metrics. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please see the site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, currently located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. For information on opting out of Google Analytics, we encourage you to visit Google’s website, including its list of currently available opt-out options presently located at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

In Connection with the Practitioner Locator Feature.

In connection with the Practitioner Locator feature of the Site, Cynosure shares with Site users the names and contact information (including addresses, email addresses, and phone numbers) of providers of cosmetic laser services.

In Connection with the Offering of Marketing Services

We may choose to disclose nonpublic personal information about you to a third party for compensation. In particular, included with the purchase of many of our products is the ability to receive discounts off of marketing services related to those products. Certain of these marketing services are provided through our third party vendor, PatientPop, Inc., a company with which we have a co-marketing arrangement (“PatientPop”). Following your purchase, unless you direct us otherwise we will share your contact information with PatientPop and they will reach out to you to determine if you have an interest in their services and redeeming any available discounts due to your Cynosure product purchase. The personal information we may share in this manner includes your name and any business contact information that you may have provided to us in connection with your purchase. We will also share the type of product you have purchased from us.

Outside Contractors.

We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, “Outside Contractors”) to provide specific services and products related to the Site, such as hosting and maintaining the Site, providing fraud screening, and developing applications for the Site, and related to our business generally. In the course of providing products or services to us, these Outside Contractors may have access to information collected through the Site, including your personally identifiable information. We use reasonable efforts to ensure that these Outside Contractors are capable of (1) protecting the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Statement, and (2) not using your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing us with the products or services for which we contracted or as required by law.

Sale of Business.

We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in the event of a sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Cynosure or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined below), or that portion of Cynosure or any of its Corporate Affiliates to which the Site relates, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, provided that the third party agreed to the terms of this Privacy Statement.

Affiliates.

We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about you to our Corporate Affiliates. For purposes of this Privacy Statement: “Corporate Affiliate” means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with Cynosure, whether by ownership or otherwise; and “control” means possessing, directly or indirectly, the power to direct or cause the direction of the management, policies or operations of an entity, whether through ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the voting securities, by contract or otherwise. Any information relating to you that we provide to our Corporate Affiliates will be treated by those Corporate Affiliates in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Statement,

In general, you can visit our Site without divulging any personal information. Certain areas, however, require specific information and may not be available to visitors who choose not to provide such information.

Cynosure automatically collects domain information and pages accessed from all visitors to this Site as part of its on-going administration of this Site. This data helps Cynosure understand more about the types of visitors accessing this Site, how often they visit and what parts of the Site they visit most often. Cynosure may then use this information to modify and improve the Site. Cynosure may modify or update this Privacy Statement at any time without notice.

If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Statement or feel that we are not abiding by the terms of this Privacy Statement, please contact our Privacy Agent in any of the following ways:
