How Collected Information May Be Used
If you submit a request to receive an electronic publication or communication from SEDDS, you will receive these publications or communications from SEDDS until such time as you elect to unsubscribe or otherwise notify SEDDS you wish to discontinue receiving said publications or communications. SEDDS maintains a directory of dentists that may include information dentists submit via this Web site. Some portions of this directory, containing information about SEDDS members, are publicly accessible on www.sedds.org for patients to use. This may include a link to a dental practice Web site which may contain an email address.

While we will continue to share information we maintain about you with national and local dental societies, SEDDS will do our best to be sure any other specific contact information you so identify is removed from any list we share with other organizations.

On request we also offer visitors the ability to have inaccuracies corrected in contact information, financial information, unique identifiers, transaction information and communications that the visitor has directed to the site.
You may also contact us if you believe your information is being used for purposes other than those for which it was originally collected.
