This website is owned and operated by Medical Horizons Consulting, LLC which does business as Horizons ID Systems for the purpose of online sales.  We are committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors while they interact with the content, products and services on this site (the “Site”).  This Privacy Policy applies to the Site only. It does not apply to other websites to which we link.  Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we want you to understand what information we collect about you, how we collect it, how that information is used, and how you can control our disclosure of it. You agree that your use of the Site signifies your assent to this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with this Privacy Policy, please do not use the Site.

1)  Information Collected

We collect two types of information from you: i) information that you voluntarily provide to us (e.g. through a voluntary registration process, sign-ups or emails); and ii) information that is derived through automated tracking mechanisms.

By registering with us, you consent to the use and method of disclosure as described in this Privacy  Policy.

·         Voluntary Information for Services and Features

We collect personally identifiable information when you choose to use certain other features of the Site, including: i) making purchases, ii) consenting to receive email about upcoming promotions or events, iii) consenting to receive email, iv) commenting on products. When you choose to use these additional features, we require you to provide your “Contact Information” in addition to other personal information that may be required to complete a transaction such as your phone number, billing and shipping addresses and credit card information.  Occasionally, we may also request information such as your shopping preferences and demographics which will help us better serve you and our others users in the future.

·         Cookies

Our site uses "cookies" and other tracking technologies.  Cookies enable us to serve secure pages to our users without asking them to sign in repeatedly.  Most browsers allow you to control cookies, including whether or not to accept them and how to remove them. If a user's system is idle for a defined time, the cookie will expire, forcing the user to sign in again to continue their session. This prevents unauthorized access to the user's information while they are away from their computer.

You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but please note that if you choose to erase or block your cookies, you will need to re-enter your original user ID and password to gain access to certain parts of the Site.

While no computer system is completely secure, we believe the measures we have implemented reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved.

4) Third Party Advertising

Horizons ID Systems does not allow Third Party Advertising on our site.   We do provide links to other sites for the purposes of providing you with the most up to date information regarding our products, for creating your own ID badges, and for creating your own custom lanyards.  These sites are generally manufacturers or partner sites which allow you to use a tool developed by that particular manufacturer or partner to select the best product for your needs from their line, to receive instruction in how to use their product or to see video or a slide presentation about their product.

Our manufacturers and partners may set cookies. Doing this allows the manufacturer or partner to recognize your computer each time you visit their site. In this way, they may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer linked to their site and determine which links are clicked. This information may allow them to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. Horizons ID Systems does not have access to or control of the cookies that may be placed by these third party servers of the manufacturer or partner.  If you do not wish to receive these cookies, you may disable cookies in your browser, or you may elect not to click on the links to our manufacturers or partners sites.  

This privacy statement covers the use of cookies by Horizons ID Systems and does not cover the use of cookies by any of its manufacturers or partners.
