Modern Optical International Privacy Policy

Modern Optical International knows that you care how information about you is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust that we will do so carefully and sensibly. This notice describes our privacy policy. By visiting modernoptical.com, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Notice.
What Information About Customers Does modernoptical.com Gather?
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your Modern Optical experience. Here are the types of information we gather.
  • Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our website or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing future website experiences for you, and communicating with you.
  • Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use "cookies," and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses modernoptical.com and other content served by or on behalf of modernoptical.com on other Web sites.
What About Cookies?
  • Cookies are unique identifiers that we transfer to your device to enable our systems to recognize your device and to provide features such as EZ Ordering, and storage of items in your Shopping Cart between visits.
  • The Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as flash cookies, by changing the addon's settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer. Because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of modernoptical.com’s essential features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to add items to your Shopping Cart, proceed to Checkout, or use any modernoptical.com products and services that require you to sign in.
Does modernoptical.com Share the Information It Receives?
Information about our customers is an important part of our business, and we are not in the business of selling it to others. We share customer information only as described below.
  • Third-Party Service Providers: We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mail, removing repetitive information from customer lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, providing search results, processing credit card payments, and providing customer service. They have access to information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes.
  • Protection of modernoptical.com and Others: We release account and other information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law; enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of modernoptical.com, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. Obviously, however, this does not include selling, renting, sharing, or otherwise disclosing identifiable information from customers for commercial purposes in violation of the commitments set forth in this Privacy Notice.
How Secure Is My Information?
We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input.
  • We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order. We transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
  • It is important for you to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer.
What Choices Do I Have?
  • As discussed above, you can always choose not to provide information, even though it might be needed to make a purchase or to take advantage of such modernoptical.com features.
  • You can add or update certain information at any time.
  • If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please advise us accordingly.
Conditions of Use, Notices, and Revisions
If you choose to visit modernoptical.com your visit and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Notice and our Terms and Conditions of Use, including limitations on damages, resolution of disputes, and application of the law of the State of Illinois. If you have any concern about privacy at modernoptical.com, please contact us with a thorough description, and we will try to resolve it. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Notice applies to all information that we have about your account. We stand behind the promises we make, however, and will never materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
