Visiting Our Site.
When you visit websites, use search engines, or conduct business on the Internet, many different parties gather information about your online behavior by tracking your searches, visits, and transactions, and then by matching that data with other information about you. We only collect very limited information about you when you visit drgharabeki.com. When you submit the contact form, we use that information to contact you. We also use information to provide you with a better experience while you use our site.
Use of Your Information.
We passively collect information about you. Like most websites, we automatically receive and record information in our server logged from your browser when you visit drgharabeki.com. The information that we collect with these automated methods includes your IP address, cookie information, browser type, system type, and referring URL. If you sign up for our email newsletter, we may also use an embedded image to track whether you open our email. We use this information to improve the performance of our site and newsletters. On occasion, we may also access this type of information to investigate or maintain the stability and security of our site. For information you have voluntarily shared through the contact sheet, we will use it to contact you.
Third Party Vendors.
We work with a limited group of vendors to process data, facilitate the operation of our website, and deliver messages to you on other platforms. For example, outside vendors like MonsterInsights, WPforms, or Google will help analyze traffic on our site or send out periodic email updates.
How Third Parties Use the Cookies Feature.
Our site is connected in a variety of ways to content residing on other platforms. We provide links to content on social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, and to content on other sites, such as articles posted on the sites of news organizations. Our site may also feature embedded media, such as videos, that are hosted on other platforms (such as YouTube) but viewable directly through the buttons we provide. When you click on links or buttons for any of these types of external content, the providers of that content may place their own cookies on your computer, access existing cookies that were set when you previously visited other websites, or otherwise gather information about you as you access their content. To learn about how those content hosts treat the data they collect through cookies and otherwise, see their respective online privacy policies and other posted guidance. We do not vouch for those privacy policies either. You should read them and make your own decisions about them.
Securities Measures & Data Transmission.
We use reasonable measures to help protect information from loss, theft, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. You should understand that no data storage system or transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Please note that information collected by third parties may not have the same security protections as information you submit to us, and we are not responsible for protecting the security of such information.
You may opt out of our email newsletters by clicking the “unsubscribe” at the bottom of each newsletter and following the subsequent instructions. You may also opt out of all communications from us by contacting us using the contact information below. You may be able to refuse or disable cookies by adjusting your web browser settings. Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the “help” section). Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable Local Shared Objects and similar technologies. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Sites may no longer be available to you.
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under the age of 18 without parental consent, unless permitted by law. If we learn that a child under the age of 18 has provided us with personal information, we will delete it in accordance with applicable law.
