Why we collect personal information:
ShoulderSphere collects personal information from you only with your knowledge and consent to help meet our commitment to provide excellent service and to continuously improve your experience on our website.

We collect this information to allow you to purchase or register for certain products and services and complete those transactions; to enter contests; to subscribe to email newsletters; and to provide you with services or information that may be of interest to you. The type of personal information we collect falls into 5 categories:

To help prevent fraud and identity theft, we may also use a third-party service provider to validate your identity through an online authentication process. While you are required to provide personal information, this information is not collected by the third-party service provider and ShoulderSphere does not have access to the personal information.

How do we protect your personal information?
ShoulderSphere uses well-established technology to protect the security of your online personal information and your personal content. While we are committed to maintaining the security of your information, you play an important role in helping us meet this obligation. Never reveal your username or password to anyone.
Encryption is a way of “scrambling” electronic information for transmission. 128-bit encryption is the strongest, most secure form of encryption that is generally available in Internet browsers on the market in North America today. That’s why we require all of our customers to use a browser that supports this level of encryption. Many areas of the ShoulderSphere website require 128-bit encryption. Your browser may use symbols such as a key or a padlock icon to show you when you are in a secure area. For more information about the encryption capabilities of your browser, use the browser’s HELP menu. In general, if your browser’s encryption level is not high enough, you will not be able to use many of the services on the navage.com website.
A software virus is a computer file which, when installed (either from a disk or by downloading it via the Internet), can cause damage to a computer. Some viruses are relatively harmless and display annoying messages; others can seriously damage your computer and the information on it. If you choose to download files from the Internet, you should be aware of the risk of viruses. New viruses continue to be detected on the Internet. If you choose to download any files available through links from this website, please take reasonable and appropriate precautions to scan for computer viruses.
ShoulderSphere.com contains links to other websites. While ShoulderSphere takes measures to ensure that the links on our website are to reputable and well-established companies, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those websites.

Click stream data:
Click stream data includes general log information (click stream) such as the full Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of the pages you accessed on the Canada Post website and the Internet Protocol (IP) address used to connect your computer to the Internet.

A “cookie” is a piece of data that a web server creates when you visit a website. This data is typically encoded information about how and when you use a site. It is placed on your PC in the form of a small text file. Cookies cannot carry viruses or other damaging data. For more information about cookies and why they are used, please refer to our cookies page.
A web beacon, also referred to as a clear gif or page tag, consists of code on Navage.com that delivers a small graphic image from another website or third party server. They may not be visible as the beacon is generally a 1×1 pixel that is often designed to blend into the background of a web page. We use beacons, often in conjunction with cookies, to monitor the effectiveness of ad banners and to understand certain actions that you took (such as a purchase), but not to know who you are. We do not use beacons to store or link to personal information.

ShoulderSphere does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of majority without the consent of a parent or guardian.

ShoulderSphere is a commercial website promoting and selling the ShoulderSphere. We do not give medical advice, make diagnoses, or recommend treatments for individual patients, and the information on the website is not presented for that purpose. We believe that the best customer is an informed customer, and we endeavor to provide expert information about nasal irrigation from trustworthy sources. However this information is neither exhaustive nor inclusive, and there are nasal irrigation issues about which experts disagree. Our company’s approach is rooted in western medical science including scientific research, clinical trials, the scientific method, and obtaining the advice of trained medical professionals. We encourage you to learn as much as you can about nasal lavage here and elsewhere, enjoy the educational experience, and most importantly, consult your personal physician.
