WHAT INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND WHY
Our Focals™ Product
The use of the Focals™ product involves the collection, use, processing and disclosure of certain kinds of personal information. In order to use the Focals™ product, you have to create an account with the Company. This involves providing your name, email address and a password to keep your account secure. We also collect information about how you use the Focals™ product and how it performs for you so that we can understand how users use the product, to improve the product and to help you with any issues that you may have with the product.
Each Focals™ product is custom made or sized for the user, and is then delivered to the user. This requires us to collect information about the wearer’s head and eyes, which we do using precision scanning equipment. This information is then used to custom manufacture the Focals™ product for you and to assist us in developing our products. If you use prescription lenses, we collect information about your prescription in order to manufacture the lenses for your Focals™ product.
