Our Privacy Statement

Similasan recognizes and respects the need for privacy for each visitor to our Website.

Because we may collect personally identifiable information when you visit our Website, this Privacy Statement describes what information we may collect and how we may use it.  By continuing to visit our Website, you are agreeing to the practices described in this Statement.


Information We Collect Directly From You

When you interact with us on our Website or through our Customer Service team, we collect any personally identifiable information that you choose to provide to us, primarily your name, mailing address, email address, and phone number, which we use to respond to you.


Information We Collect Automatically When You Visit Our Website

Our Website also collects passive information about visitor activity, such as cookies and pixels.  Cookies are small bits of data saved in a visitor’s browser, and pixels are web beacons that help save cookies.

We use session cookies, which expire at the end of the session, to improve Website use and function.  We use persistent cookies to distinguish visitors who have been to our Website previously from new visitors.  We also use statistical and aggregated information from our session and persistent cookies for research purposes, to assess the effectiveness of our Website, and to improve visitor experience.

We do not:

  • Use our session or persistent cookies to identify the specific individuals who visit our Website,
  • Combine cookie information with the personally identifiable information that we collect directly from individuals
  • Permit third parties to access the persistent cookies for non-Similasan marketing purposes, or
  • Permit third parties to attempt to identify specific individuals who visit our website.

Our Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"), to help us analyze how visitors use our Website. The information generated by the cookies, described above, about visitor use of our Website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the U.S. Google will use this information for evaluating your use of our Websites, compiling reports on the website activity, and providing us with other analytic services relating to our Websites and Internet use. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

We have activated IP anonymization so that Google will truncate/anonymize the last eight-bit segment of your IP address beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and truncated there.

You may manage and opt out of Google’s use of cookies by visiting Google’s Ads settings and selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Websites. Alternatively, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For further information on Google’s terms of use and data protection/privacy, please see https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html, and http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/index.html.

How We Use and Share Information

We use the personally identifiable information we collect from you only to respond to your questions or requests for additional information, to provide services to you, and in connection with marketing products and services of Similasan.  For example, we might use this information to announce a new product or promotion or to permit our Customer Service team to follow-up with you.

We only share your personally identifiable information with third parties acting on our behalf to provide the services and fulfill the purposes described in this Privacy Statement, and otherwise to the extent required by law or authorized by the individual who provides the personally identifiable information.

You may see advertisements about us on other websites or social media sites that you visit.  That is not because we have individually identified you.  We do not track you when you leave our Website, and we do not disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties.  Instead, you may see our advertisements on other websites and social media platforms either because you fit within a demographic profile that we identified to a third-party marketer or platform for advertising purposes or We do not provide personally identifiable information about you to third party marketers, other websites, or social media platforms, and we do not receive personally identifiable information from any of those sources about you.

As noted above, you may choose to disable cookies, and the links provided under “Information We Collect Automatically” include information about how to disable session and persistent cookies.  In addition, if we send you a promotional email, it will include information about removing your name from our e-mail list by "opting out."  If you receive a communication from Similasan via U.S. mail, you may opt-out of our mailing list by calling us at 1-800-240-9780 or emailing getinfo@similasanusa.com.
