What Information is Collected
In general, you can visit the site while remaining anonymous by not providing any Identifying Information. In some cases, Non-Personal Information may be automatically collected, such as your Internet Browser, computer operating system, domain name of your Internet service provider and/or the website from which you linked to our site.
Identifying Information about you will not be collected unless you provide it to us voluntarily. For example, LBL retains e-mail addresses of visitors who respond to the site’s e-mail forms, online forms, registration forms and surveys. LBL also retains information about the frequency of site visits, length of time of the visit and aggregate information about the site page(s) visitors access.
LBL may send Internet visitors “cookies.” A cookie is a small data file sent by the site to your browser which may then be stored on your hard drive. LBL’s cookie enables the site to recognize you if you have a LBL account or have utilized certain site features. In addition, the cookie may recall information so that you do not have to re-submit it, and also automatically updates site information. If your browser software permits, you may program it to notify you of attempts to send cookies and/or you may decline or delete them.
When you perform a search with LBL’s search engine, we do not record information identifying you or linking you to the search performed. As necessary to provide service, LBL does record limited information for every search request and uses that information only to solve technical problems with the site, to calculate overall usage statistics and to improve the structure and content of the site.
LBL will primarily use Communications to respond to your request(s). If you choose not to provide a personally identifiable Communication, we may not be able to respond to your request. You may receive an error message displayed on your browser. We may use Identifying Information for feedback purposes, marketing and promotional purposes and for a statistical analysis of users’ behavior. Furthermore, LBL retains the right to use ideas, concepts, know-how or techniques contained in any Communications you send to the site for any purpose whatsoever, including, but not limited to, developing and marketing products using such information. Non-Personal Information may be aggregated for internal review and used to improve the site’s content and its structure.
LBL does not distribute Personal Data, Identifying Information or Communications to unaffiliated third parties unless such third parties are under contract with LBL for administrative support and services or unless required by law. LBL will not voluntarily share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose information obtained from visitors to the site, whether Personal Data or Identifying Information, to unaffiliated third parties, unless LBL has contracted with such third parties to provide administrative support and services or as required by law. In such an event, we will contractually require these service providers to protect such information and provide the same level of confidentiality that LBL provides.
Information You Share with LBL
LBL will take appropriate steps to protect all information you share with us. Whenever you provide the site with Personal Data, LBL will take commercially reasonable steps to establish a secure connection with your web browser.
The site contains secured and non-secured sections. Inherent in the use of the Internet and Internet related technologies is some risk of disclosure of information, including without limitation, personal data you supply.

A Special Note for Parents Concerning Privacy
LBL encourages children to consult with their parents before furnishing data. However, LBL believes that parents should supervise their children’s online activities and consider using parental control tools available from online services and software manufacturers that help provide a “child friendly” online environment. These tools can also prevent children from disclosing online their name, address, and other Identifying Information without parental permission. For additional information about parental control tools, please consult the “Consumer Assistance” page of the Direct Marketing Association home page at www.the-dma.org.
