Collection of Information

The information collected via these websites is used to improve the content of tndental.org and musiccitydentalconference.org and to advance the TDA’s mission. For each visitor to these websites, the TDA web server automatically recognizes only the user’s domain name, but not the email address (where possible). The TDA collects the domain name and Internet Protocol (IP) address of visitors to tndental.org and musiccitydentalconference.com, aggregate information on what pages users access or visit, user-specific information on what pages users access or visit, and information volunteered by users, including from surveys, purchases, and/or registrations.

How Collected Information May Be Used

If you submit a request to receive an electronic publication or communication from the TDA or Music City Dental Conference, you will receive these publications or communications from the TDA or Music City Dental Conference until you elect to unsubscribe or otherwise notify the TDA or Music City Dental Conference that you wish to discontinue receiving said publications or communications. The TDA maintains a directory of dentists that may include information dentists submit via the tndental.org website. Some portions of this directory, containing information about TDA members, are publicly accessible on tndental.org for patients to use. This may include a link to a dental practice website which may contain an email address.

The TDA, its subsidiaries, charities, and affiliates (including musiccitydentalconference.com) may use or disclose an individual’s contact information and other information about you, such as your occupation, specialty, member status, graduation date, and dental school, to alert you to new information, products and services, events, and other opportunities. From time to time, we may also make your contact information and other information about you available to other organizations we believe to be reputable, such as companies whose products or services we think you might find interesting. If you register on tndental.org and musiccitydentalconference.com to attend an event, the TDA may provide an attendee list to other attendees and to entities that collaborate with the TDA on the event.

With respect to email addresses: We generally do not knowingly disclose an individual’s e-mail address without the individual’s express or implied consent outside the TDA, its service providers, subsidiaries, and affiliated entities (including musiccitydentalconference.com), TDA members, and national, state, and local dental societies. However, we may disclose your e-mail address in certain situations; for example, if you serve in a leadership capacity or if you provide your e-mail address in connection with an event or an attendee list.

The TDA and Music City Dental Conference may also occasionally hire other individuals and entities to provide services on their behalf, including but not limited to hosting of online resources, processing credit card transactions, packaging, order fulfillment, answering customer questions about products or services, consulting services, data modeling, printing, sending postal mail, and processing membership and event registration.
