Diagnostic Innovations LLC collects data from users in four main ways.
- Registration screens and online forms
- In the process of online purchases (transaction records) and sales inquiries
- In e-mails sent to Diagnostic Innovations LLC from users
- Through automated means such as communications protocols and cookies
Diagnostic Innovations LLC may receive data from you as part of the communication connection itself - the standard electronic greeting between your computer, the network, and our servers. This information often consists of network routing (where you came from), equipment information (browser type), date and time. At this time our server will also query your computer to see if there are "cookies1" set by Diagnostic Innovations LLC.com to facilitate log in or other site navigation procedures.
Cookies also serve as a convenience to users by creating a more streamlined login process, keeping track of shopping cart additions and preserving order information between sessions. In the future, as we enable further customization of the site, cookies will help in assuring that information provided to you will be the most relevant to your needs.
You can set your Web browser to alert you when a cookie is being used. You can also get information on the duration of the cookie, and to learn what server your information is being returned to. You then have the opportunity to accept or reject the cookie. Additionally, you may set your browser to refuse all cookies or accept only cookies returned to the originating servers. Users may generally disable the cookie feature on their browser without affecting their ability to use the site, except in some cases where cookies are used as an essential security feature necessary for transaction completion. In order to provide maximum site utility, Diagnostic Innovations LLC also uses a tracking technique that uses embedded URLs2 to allow use of the site without cookies. Embedded URLs manifest themselves as plain-text or encoded extensions to the URL that appears in the browser address or location toolbar. This technology allows limited information to follow you as you navigate the site, but is not identified to personal information and is not used beyond the session. While this increases your ability to surf the site, it does not replace the functionality or streamlining of cookies and may limit your use of many convenience features offered by the site.
To learn more about cookies and browser functionality relating to cookies please search for "cookies" in the help function of your browser.

Diagnostic Innovations LLC recognizes that users may not wish to be contacted about new or related products. Diagnostic Innovations LLC.com allows you to opt out of any e-mail marketing that may result from use of the site. Diagnostic Innovations LLC allows visitors to self-select into communities as a way to provide initial customization to the Diagnostic Innovations LLC web site. There are also plans to allow users to determine the way requested information is delivered.
Diagnostic Innovations LLC only shares information with selected companies after providing users with an ability to either opt out of or opt into the sharing. In some cases, where the service is designed to provide marketing, the opt out may be not to utilize the service. The limitations to such opt outs/opt ins are in the case of joint sale or joint events where the information goes to both Diagnostic Innovations LLC and the other party at the same time, where the customer has requested follow up which involves Diagnostic Innovations LLC partners, and as needed with third parties required to accomplish the transaction including delivery and credit card clearing services. As we further develop our preference tools we will endeavor to have our partners join in their use as well to provide the user with a more seamless and streamlined environment.
