This site is owned and operated by Starkey. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At Starkey, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe.

Rest assured that the information you provide is safeguarded. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
Information Starkey gathers and tracks
We gather two types of information about users:
Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. We collect this information to customize our features for individual visitors who are Starkey customers and to notify customers about updates to our site and products or services.
Information Starkey gathers through aggregated tracking is used to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. We collect this information in order to determine how to create the best experience for our customers. We may track search terms entered in our Search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but this tracking is never associated with an individual user.

Starkey strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We disclose your information to no third parties unless it is specifically stated otherwise. We may use third party contractors to help us operate our business and the sites or administer activities on our behalf, and may share your personal information with these contractors for those limited purposes. We use your information solely to fulfill services, transact a purchase, and help us improve our website and product offering to you. Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, Starkey reserves the right to cooperate with local, state and federal officials in any investigation relating to any purported illegal activity(ies) and, when required by law, regulation, legal process or government requests, to disclose any personal information furnished by you or collected by Starkey to law enforcement authorities or other relevant or related third parties.
Your information may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Starkey or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities.
