Protecting Your Information
1. SUBMISSION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
2. USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
LBPC may conduct research based on its users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to LBPC during user registration, as well as on order forms, during promotions, through surveys, and from its server log files. This information is used to better serve its users. Aggregated information, which is statistical information that may be compiled from personally identifiable information but which is not personally identifiable itself, may be shared with advertisers or other businesses. Under a confidentiality agreement, LBPC also may share information with third parties in service of LBPC.
Unless LBPC provides specific notice prior to collecting particular information (such as, for example, prior to a survey), LBPC will not provide users’ personally identifiable information to any third party, except that it may provide or publish information in the aggregate.
LBPC also reserves the right to send you offers about its services and those of its affiliates. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request removal from this list.
If you wish to unregister from LBPC’s sites, please contact email@example.com and ask to have your registration deleted. Once your account has been deleted, you will no longer be able to submit comments and/or other material to LBPC’s websites. You may re-register at any time, unless your account has been terminated by LBPC.
4. PRIVACY WITH RESPECT TO VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSURES
If you voluntarily disclose personal information in comments and/or other materials submitted to LBPC for use on its websites, such information may be collected by other viewers and may result in unsolicited messages from others.
5. DISCLOSURE IN SPECIAL CASES
As stated previously, LBPC will not—without specific notification—as a rule disclose personal information submitted to LBPC to third parties. However, LBPC may disclose such information when required by law, subpoena or order issued by a court or governmental body, or when LBPC has reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating LBPC’s User Agreement or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) LBPC’s rights or property, other LBPC users, or anyone else who may be harmed.
6. DATA SECURITY
LBPC has physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the information collected online. However, no security system is impenetrable. LBPC cannot guarantee the security of its database, nor can it guarantee that information will not be intercepted after being transmitted from you to LBPC over the internet.
7. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY LBPC SERVERS
LBPC’s web servers automatically collect certain personally identifiable information, such as which pages each user visits and the domain names of visitors. This information is used for a number of purposes internally and may also be provided to advertisers on an aggregated, anonymous basis.
LBPC also places a “cookie” on the browsers of computers of users of its websites to store and track information. A “cookie” is a data file that can be used to tell when your computer has visited a certain website. The information may be used for editorial purposes, for measuring traffic patterns, and to make sure that you do not have to reenter your password multiple times during a visit. Advertisers on LBPC’s website also may have their own cookies.
Any user may opt-out of cookies (including but not limited to LBPC’s cookies) by changing a setting on your browser. Opting out of cookies by changing this setting will disable all cookies and may cause problems with some websites.
8. INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 18
Children under the age of 13 should not send any information to LBPC, including but not limited to names, addresses, or email addresses. LBPC does not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If LBPC learns that it has collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13, it will delete that information from its database as soon as possible.
Teen-agers who are at least 13 years of age may submit personal information only with the permission of, and under the supervision of, a parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian agreeing to LBPC’s User Agreement for the benefit of a teen-ager between the ages of 13 and 18, you are fully responsible for any comments and/or other submissions by the teen-ager and any legal liability that the teen-ager may incur.
