Website Privacy Policy 



Virtual Incision Corporation (“Virtual Incision”, “we”, “us”, “our”, or similar) understands the importance of your privacy and we take our responsibility to protect it seriously. Virtual Incision operates MIRA IQ™, our proprietary technology Services that allows surgeons and staff to access procedure data and other case information collected during surgical procedures using the MIRATM Surgery System (“MIRA”). We refer to MIRA IQ as the “App.”

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes the types of information we collect from you through your access and use of our App, as well as our website located at virtualincision.com, and when you interact with us or communicate with us (collectively, the “Services”).

By providing us with personal information or otherwise accessing or using the Services, including the App, our websites, and any other applications widgets, or chat features, you expressly consent to the information-handling practices described in this Policy. If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use the Services or provide us with your information.

To assist us in ensuring that we can provide the most accurate information possible, we ask that you check this Policy for updates. We also ask that where we have an ongoing relationship with you and any of the data you have provided becomes no longer accurate that you keep us informed of this so we can amend our records accordingly.

B. Automatically Collected Usage and Device Information

Like most website and mobile application operators, we use various technologies to automatically collect the following types of information about you.

For example, we use log files to track actions occurring on the website and our App and collect data about visitors, including IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, date/time stamps, and device identifiers. This information is used for security purposes and to detect and prevent fraud.

We also use the following technologies in our business:

Cookies are small text files that a website transfers to a visitor’s device or browser for recordkeeping purposes.  Our website uses different types of cookies to, among other things, automatically recognize you when you return to our website, store information regarding your preferences, personalize content for you, provide social media functionality, and analyze our website traffic.   Please note that if cookies are disabled, you may not be able to enjoy certain features of our website.
  • Pixels, tags, web beacons and similar technologies. Our website may use other tracking tools, including pixels, tags, and web beacons, which are small electronic images embedded in web content and email messages that are not ordinarily visible to users.  These technologies are small pieces of code that run when a website page or email is loaded. They are used to monitor the behavior of the visitor or email recipient—such as what icons were clicked or whether links in an email were opened—and gather analytics.  Web beacons allow us to track pages and content accessed and viewed by users, as well as to monitor email readership.  We may also use pixels to track visitors.  Pixels work in conjunction with cookies to let us know what portions of our website are of interest to you and to help us provide you with tailored information from our website. If you turn off cookies, the pixels, tags, and web beacons we use may still detect certain information about your interaction with our website and disregard any cookie-prohibitive markers or signals. Note, the vendors that supply us these pixels, tags, web beacons, or similar tracking technologies collect your personal information instantaneously and simultaneous to our collection of such information and they may use the information for their own purposes.
  • Analytics. Our website may also use third party analytics vendors such as Google Analytics.  Please click here for more information about how data is collected and processed in connection with the Google Analytics service:   https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.  We use analytics data for a variety of purposes, including to analyze use of our website and improve its design and content.

The information collected through these technologies may be combined with personal information. We may share information about your use of our Services with our advertising and analytics partners, who may combine it with other information that you previously provided to them.

Note, we do not use any of the above technologies in connection with our App for marketing purposes.

We, and the third parties we engage, may combine information we collect from you over time, and across the Services, with information obtained from other sources.  This helps us improve the information’s overall accuracy and completeness, and also helps us better tailor our interactions with you.
