LC Media Online Privacy Statement

Disclaimer: In case of discrepancy or litigation, the original official English version of these rules and regulations will prevail.

LC Media respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the personal information that you share with us. Generally, you can browse through our website without giving us any information about yourself. If or when we do need your personal information to provide services you request or when you choose to provide us with your personal information, this policy describes how we collect and use your personal information.

1. Information Collection

Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal or other physical address, title, birth date, gender, occupation, industry, personal interests, and other information when needed to provide a product or service you request.

We do not automatically collect personal information, including your email address. We do collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our website and other related information, such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our website. We use this information to monitor and improve our website. We do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged into a subscriber account.

LC Media collects personal information when you register with LC Media for a LC Media subscriber account, when you use certain LC Media products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, when you submit an entry for promotions, or when you submit your personal information to LC Media for any other reason. LC Media only uses information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices and applicable laws.

Access to certain LC Media web pages is only available to subscribers and requires a login and a password. The use of those web pages and the information or programs downloadable from those sites may be governed by a written agreement between either you or your employer and LC Media. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by LC Media to verify compliance with the agreement, log software licenses granted, track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.

When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you are a subscriber to our service(s) and have previously indicated that you wish LC Media to remember your login and password. In that instance we can determine which subscriber account is browsing our website; however, we do not know whether the individual using the subscriber account is the individual registered to that account. For example, if you have provided your login to someone else or otherwise allowed someone else to use your account, we do not know who is using the subscriber account.

Like many other commercial websites, the LC Media website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Please go to "Cookies and Tracking Information" below for more information.

2. Notice

When personal information is collected, we will inform you at the point of collection of the purpose for the collection. LC Media will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, except under the limited conditions described under "Information Sharing and Disclosure" below.

We will always give you the opportunity to "opt in" to receiving direct marketing or market research information.
