We do not sell glasses to individuals under 16 years old or to those who are registered as blind or partially sighted.

Embedded Content

Our articles may include embedded content (like videos, images, and articles) from other websites. This content behaves in the same manner as if you have visited the source website directly.

These sites may collect data, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with the embedded content, especially if you have an account and are logged in to those sites.

For registered users, we store the personal information they provide in their profile. Users can view, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (username changes are not permitted). Administrators can also view and edit that information.

Your Data Rights

If you have an account or have left comments on our site, you may request an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including data you have provided. You can also request the deletion of any personal data we have about you, except for any data we are required to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
