  • our email marketing and email management software service provider

Note that, while the above entities act as data processors on our behalf, some or all of them may also act as data controllers in their own rights.

The payment merchants or other data processing entities may also exercise control over the other purposes that a customer's data is used for, for example direct marketing of their products and services, which is not within our control. The payment merchants or other data processing entities also have legal requirements of their own to meet, such as regulations relating to the use and retention of payment card data or other personal data.

How Long Your Personal Information Will Be Kept

We will retain any personal information you choose to provide to us until you let us know you would like for us to delete it, which you are free to do at any time. 

This does not apply to information from patients of Dr. Saru Bala, PLLC. We will hold patient personal information in our files as required by applicable law and until at least one (1) year after any relevant statute of limitation on professional liability has run.

Data Security and Information Storage

We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors.

Whenever Dr. Saru Bala, PLLC collects sensitive personal information (such as credit card data), that information is encrypted and transmitted to Dr. Saru Bala, LLC in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of their web browser, or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While Dr. Saru Bala, PLLC uses encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, customer service) are granted access to personal information. The computers and servers in which we store personal Information are kept in a secure environment.

However, unfortunately, please note that no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure.

Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Website.

The safety and security of your information also depends on you. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password for access to certain parts of our Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.

Please note that we may retain some or all of the information you submit for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.

You may also decline to share certain personal information with us, in which case we may not be able to provide you with some of the features and functionality of our services. 

When you place an order through the site, we will maintain your order information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.
