SMILE BRILLIANT collects information from you when you when you place an order or enter a giveaway. When ordering or registering on our site, you are asked to enter your: first and last name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number or credit card information.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
When you place your order, we need to know your personal details in order to fulfill (and communicate about) your order. When you enter a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for minimal contact information (or social media information) so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
Visitor traffic and site usage is monitored to improve user experience. We may also use the information that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Smile Brilliant also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This information is used for the purposes of identifying potential fraud and/or determining state or country of origin. IP addresses are only disclosed internally for the purposes of enhancing user experiences and determining fraud. SMILE BRILLIANT’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how SMILE BRILLIANT’s visitors use its website. From time to time, SMILE BRILLIANT may release non-personal, aggregated information, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. We may also collect personal information to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to our Website, new products and special offers we think you might find valuable. We may also use your information to personalize your experience and to improve our customer service.
Certain visitors to SMILE BRILLIANT’s websites choose to interact with SMILE BRILLIANT in ways that require SMILE BRILLIANT to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that SMILE BRILLIANT gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, anonymous data such as page visits, time on site, products added to cart, live chat requests etc are collected. If/when a visitor becomes an active customer or giveaway participant, that data becomes associated with a unique user/customer. In each case, SMILE BRILLIANT collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with SMILE BRILLIANT. SMILE BRILLIANT does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you place an order or enter your personal information. When you place orders, we offer the use of a secure server. The secure server software (SSL) encrypts all information you input before it is sent to us. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access.
SMILE BRILLIANT may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. For instance, SMILE BRILLIANT may monitor the most popular topics on our site. SMILE BRILLIANT may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, SMILE BRILLIANT does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
We may also collect the following technical information about you when you visit our website: type of browser and operating system, internet speed, time spent browsing site, visits, views and other traffic related data, IP address, referring URL, etc. We collect this information through the use of order/registration forms, Google Analytics, and our own analytics software. We, in turn use this information to improve the overall site experience. We may share aggregate traffic or demographic information to third parties such as advertising partners, sponsors or investment companies, but we will not provide such third parties your personal information such as your name or email address.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, SMILE BRILLIANT discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law (such as in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request), or when SMILE BRILLIANT believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SMILE BRILLIANT, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered customer or contest registrant of the SMILE BRILLIANT website and have supplied your email address, SMILE BRILLIANT may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with SMILE BRILLIANT and our products.
