Email correspondence.

From time to time, persons may choose to send unsolicited email to our site. Each letter is read, and depending on the nature of its contents, an email response may be returned.

Emails with attached images.

Some website visitors, at their choosing, email to Animated-Teeth.com pictures showing their smile and teeth. And at our discretion, we may choose to edit these images as a way of illustrating the types of cosmetic changes a dentist might possibly make. All images submitted become the property of WMDS, Inc. who has the right to reproduce, modify, and publish the image. The information found in the email letter itself, including the sender's email address and identity, is printed out for our files but is not otherwise retained or utilized by WMDS, Inc. for any purposes, or shared with anyone outside of WMDS, Inc.

Advertising Privacy Statement.

This Site is affiliated with AdThrive, LLC (“AdThrive”), Google, Inc., Amazon.com, Inc. and Walmart Inc. for the purposes of placing advertising on the Site.

Amazon.com and Walmart.com affiliate links.

Currently, advertisements shown on the Site that are associated with WMDS, Inc.'s direct accounts with Walmart and Amazon are links only (they simply direct Site visitors to the websites of these companies). And as such, these advertisements do not collect any Site visitor information.

If the link is clicked, upon arriving at either company's website, their systems will collect user information. For details about what is collected, here are links to the Privacy Notice and Data Privacy FAQ pages for Amazon.com. And this link leads to Walmart.com's Privacy Policy page.

AdThrive and Google advertising.

These companies use standard and widely-available tools for the placement and serving of ads, including those provided by their affiliates. Collectively, these companies publish interest-based advertisements on the Site; that is, ads that are tailored to reflect your interests. To help understand your interests, AdThrive, Google and their advertising partners will track your behaviour on our website and on other websites across the Internet using cookies.

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or "session" cookies: a persistent cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date; a session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed. Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies a user, but personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

By using this Site, you consent to the use of such cookies and the sharing of data captured by such cookies with AdThrive, Google, and their third party partners. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser by visiting: adssettings.google.com. You can also opt out of the network cookie using those settings or using the Network Advertising Initiative's multi-cookie opt-out mechanism at: optout.networkadvertising.org. However, these opt-out mechanisms themselves use cookies, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained.

For California Residents.

California law gives residents the right to opt out of the “sale” of their personal information to third parties, including for advertising purposes. Under California law, the sharing of your information with a service provider for advertising purposes could be considered a “sale.”
