How we collect personal information
Generally, we collect an individual’s personal information from that individual. For example we collect personal information when you make an enquiry about our dental products and/or dental handpiece repair services via our website, or when you order dental products from us. However, occasionally we may also collect personal information from someone other than the individual. For example we may collect your information from an existing customer, when they tell us that you may be interested in our dental products or our dental drill handpiece repair services, or from companies with whom you work, other organisations with whom you have dealings.
