Privacy Policy:

LPLD Alliance ("LPLD Alliance") operates lpldalliance.org and may operate other websites. It is LPLD Alliance's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LPLD Alliance collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LPLD Alliance's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LPLD Alliance's visitors use its website. From time to time, LPLD Alliance may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LPLD Alliance also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on lpldalliance.org blogs/sites. LPLD Alliance only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LPLD Alliance's websites choose to interact with LPLD Alliance in ways that require LPLD Alliance to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LPLD Alliance gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at lpldalliance.org to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with LPLD Alliance are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LPLD Alliance collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with LPLD Alliance. LPLD Alliance does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

LPLD Alliance may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. LPLD Alliance may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LPLD Alliance does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LPLD Alliance discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LPLD Alliance's behalf or to provide services available at LPLD Alliance's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using LPLD Alliance's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LPLD Alliance will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LPLD Alliance discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LPLD Alliance believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LPLD Alliance, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an LPLD Alliance website and have supplied your email address, LPLD Alliance may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with LPLD Alliance and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. LPLD Alliance takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
