- Who To Contact
If you choose not to provide Personal Information on this site, you may not be able to do certain things, like access particular areas of the site, enter a sweepstakes or contest, place an order, or send us e-mail.
The site you entered may also collect Personal Information from you about a third party (e.g., the site might allow you to send an electronic recommendation to a friend, in which case we will need that person's name and e-mail address). Please note that we use such information only for the specified purpose (e.g., to send the recommendation) and we will not contact the third party again by e-mail unless and until the third party contacts us.
When you supply Personal Information at this website, we will use it for the express purpose for which it was collected (e.g., to enter you in a sweepstakes or to send your order). It may also be used by us to contact you regarding other products and services which may be of interest to you (including those we may offer jointly with other companies). At any time, however, you may opt out of such future contact (see "Who to Contact" below).
At times we may retain third parties to analyze data we collect on our websites, including Personal Information, solely to help us improve our products and our website. In addition, if you order a product or service from us, we may share Personal Information with suppliers and other third parties to allow delivery of such product or service. These suppliers and other third parties are not authorized by us to use your Personal Information in any other way.
Finally, please note that we will release your Personal Information if required to do so by law, or by search warrant, subpoena, or court order.
In addition, we are constantly trying to improve how we promote our websites. To help us do this, we may measure the effectiveness of our web presence by determining what you clicked on to get to our site. Site measurement statistics may be used to personalize your website experience, as well as to evaluate — anonymously and in the aggregate — statistics about usage of the website. Information about your computer, such as your IP address (a number assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Internet), the type of Internet browser you are using and the type of computer operating system you are using may also be collected and linked to your Personal Information. This is to ensure that our websites present the best web experience for visitors, and that they are an effective information resource.
Some of the pages you visit may also collect information through the use of pixel tags (also called clear gifs) that may be shared with third parties which directly support LCC's promotional activities and website development. For example, website usage information about visitors to our website may be shared with our third party advertising agency in order to better target Internet banner advertisements on LCC's website. The information collected through the use of these pixel tags is not, however, personally identifiable, although it could be linked to your Personal Information.
Finally, we may supplement the information that you provided us with other information that we receive from third parties. We do this for marketing purposes in order to provide more targeted products and service to meet your needs.
LCC is committed to protecting the online privacy of children and making the Internet safe for our users, and for this reason, LCC does not collect personally identifiable data from children under 13. We encourage parents of children under 13 to regularly check and monitor their children's use of e-mail and other online activities.
We take reasonable precautions to keep your Personal Information secure. All personally identifiable information is subject to restricted access to prevent unauthorized access, modification, or misuse.
