In addition, if you send LPP personal correspondence via email or by mail, or if other users or third parties send LPP correspondence about your activities or ads on the Site, LPP may keep the information on a file in your name.

The server’s databases may record statistical information such as the users’ IP addresses, the type of operating system used, the time and duration of visits and pages requested, etc. They can also identify categories of users based on the domain name or the type of browser. Such statistical information is usually collected and used by LPP in a way that does not identify users of the Site.

You also agree that LPP may use your Personal Information to communicate with you and provide you with information that, in some cases, matches your interests, such as targeted banner ads, administrative advice, product offers and communications that are useful to your use of the Site. If you do not wish to receive such communications, LPP wishes to be advised accordingly. You can change your notification preferences at any time.


6.      
Does LPP disclose your Personal Information?

LPP will not disclose Personal Information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with the express consent of the Site’s user or as required by law or by a competent authority.
 

There are a variety of circumstances in which LPP may be required to disclose Personal Information to third parties. For example, LPP may disclose Personal Information to third parties hired to perform functions on LPP’s behalf or to a public authority or an agent of a public authority if, upon reasonable notice by LPP, it appears that there is an imminent threat to the life or to private property that could be avoided or minimized by the disclosure of that information.

 

In situations where LPP discloses Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy, LPP discloses only the information that is required and, if it is reasonable and practical to do so, LPP signs a confidentiality agreement with third parties to whom LPP discloses the Personal Information.

 

It is also possible that LPP retains the services of third parties which it considers as service providers to facilitate or outsource one or more aspects of the business and operations relating to the products and services provided to you, especially for aspects related to web hosting, programming and payment. LPP can send some of your Personal Information directly to these providers. These service providers are subject to a duty of confidentiality towards LPP and to all the legal provisions that prevent them from using your Personal Information for any purpose other than to facilitate or carry out the mandate given by LPP, unless LPP has your express consent or your permission to use additional information. In some cases, the service provider may collect information from you directly. If so, LPP will inform you of the involvement of the service provider, and you will be responsible for any additional information you provide, as well as additional uses for them. If you provide additional information directly to a service provider, its use of your information is governed by that service provider’s own privacy policies.

 

Because of the rules and regulations in place, LPP cannot assure you that all of your Personal Information will never be disclosed in a manner that is not described in the present Privacy Policy. For example, and without limiting the generality of the foregoing, it is possible that LPP may be forced to disclose, in some cases, Personal Information to the government or to third parties. Some third parties may also unlawfully intercept transmissions or private communications, or access thereto; or users can make abusive or malicious misuse of the Personal Information they collect on the Site. Therefore, although LPP uses practices conform to industry standards to protect your privacy, LPP cannot guarantee you that your Personal Information or your private communications will always remain private, and you should not expect them to remain private.

 

7.       How LPP protects your Personal Information?

 

LPP uses various means to protect your Personal Information. Only authorized employees and agents have access to Personal Information. LPP employees who have access to Personal Information receive training on how to protect your privacy. All computers on which is stored Personal Information are protected by passwords. LPP also uses data encryption for increased security of the Personal Information that you provide through the Site.

 
 
 
 

8.       Managing your Password

 

You are responsible for any actions taken using your user name and password, including fees charged to your account. LPP recommends that you never reveal your LPP password to any third party. If you choose to share your user name and password or your Personal Information with third parties, you will be liable for any actions taken through your account and you therefore have an interest in reading the privacy policy of this third party beforehand. If you disclose your password, you may lose considerable control over your Personal Information and you may take the risk that legally binding actions be taken on your behalf. Thus, if the security of your password has been compromised, for whatever reason, you should immediately change it.

 

9.       Your Consent / Audits and Amendment of Personal Information

 

You can withdraw your consent to LPP’s management of your Personal Information in a particular manner, subject to legal and contractual restrictions, upon reasonable notice. However, it will reduce LPP’s ability to provide you with certain products and services. You can contact LPP for more information on the implications of withdrawing your consent.

 

You can also access and review your Personal Information held by LPP and make any necessary changes by contacting LPP at the coordinates indicated in Article 11 above (BELOW?). It may be asked that you to make your request in writing and attach a proof of your identity. The reason why LPP asks for identification documents is to ensure, among other things, that LPP does not disclose unintentionally your Personal Information to a third party claiming to be you.
