HOW DOES LABW COLLECT INFORMATION ONLINE?
LABW collects information in two ways:
1. Personal Information You Submit:
LABW collects personal information you enter into data fields on the Website. For example, you may submit your name, address, email address, credit/debit card (etc.) and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for programs, contact customer service, or respond to surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide any information not specifically requested. We may also collect other personal information that will be identified on the applicable page(s) of the Website. If you submit any personal information to us, you can be assured that we will not sell, lease, or share your personal information with or to anyone else, except as follows: (1) to our third party service and/or product providers, and only so that they may help us provide the services and/or products you’ve requested; (2) upon notice posted on an applicable location of the Website where we collect your personal information for an economic transaction and notify you that we will be sharing such information with a third party, where such third party is clearly identified; and (3) on occasion, we may offer a special promotion regarding services and/or products on the Website in conjunction with a third party service and/or product provider, sponsor, or promotional partner, and share your information with that third party provider, sponsor, or promotional partner so that it can send you other special promotions it offers.
2. Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:
The Website may also collect information about your traffic to and on the Website without your active submission of information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to the Website some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of the Website easier by allowing LABW to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Website. Certain features of the Website may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identity you without your active submission of additional identifiable information.
IN WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES MIGHT LABW COLLECT AND USE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
LABW may use personal information you provide through the Website to respond to your questions and to provide you with more efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on the Website, LABW may use certain identifying technologies to allow that the Website to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of that Website you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user identification. We may also use personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding LABW’s products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions. If you don’t want to receive these emails and text messages, you may change your preferences.
DOES LABW CONSOLIDATE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
LABW may consolidate personal information of customers who use the Website. LABW may use this information to help improve the design of the Website or LABW products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE ABOUT HOW LABW COLLECTS AND USES PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
You may always limit the amount and type of personal information LABW receives about you by not entering personal information into forms or data fields on the Website. However, some of our online services may only be available to you if you provide certain personal information. Other parts of the Website may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt in our contact lists to receive special offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.
You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want the Website to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to “remember” your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, tracking technologies used to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.
WHO WILL HAVE ACCESS TO PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
Personal information will only be accessible by a restricted number of LABW employees, certain companies with whom LABW may conduct joint programs, and/or by individuals and entities with whom LABW contracts to carry out certain business activities on LABW’s behalf. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to appropriately handle, manage and secure customer data. LABW requires contractors who may have access to your personal information to not only secure such information but also to use such information only in the performance of its services on LABW’s behalf.
DOES LABW SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?
Unless it is necessary to provide access to your personal information in order to conduct a joint program or carry out a program or activity with a contractor, such as for credit card processing, LABW does not generally share your personal information with any third party and, whenever applicable, you will be provided with an opportunity to opt in or opt out of the program. In the event LABW sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. LABW requires contractors who may have access to your personal information to not only secure such information but also to use such information only in the performance of its services on LABW’s behalf.
Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, LABW reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.
As time passes, LABW may be sold along with its assets, or other transactions may occur in which customer information is one of the business assets transferred. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, in such a case, the personal information which we have gathered may be one of the business assets we transfer.
HOW DOES LABW SECURE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
