Third Party Websites
Luxand does not control the information collection and distribution policies on Internet domains other than those Internet domains that are under the control of Luxand itself. When you are on the Luxand Websites, you may be directed to other sites that are beyond our control. These other sites may independently collect data, solicit personal information, or send their own “cookies” to you. Luxand is not responsible for any use of the information including click-stream data created when using such third party sites.
This Website may also contain advertising and other links to other Websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices or content of those other sites. Also we do not send random marketing emails to personal email addresses (spam). This Website may contain hyper links to external Websites owned and operated by third parties. Luxand has no control over or association with such third party sites and Luxand is not responsible for the accuracy, completeness and quality of the information contained within them. Any and all contents on these external Websites do not reflect products, services or information provided by Luxand. You should direct any concerns regarding any external link to the site administrator or webmaster of such site.
This Website may be subject to the laws of various jurisdictions, including the laws of the United States of America, Russian Federation and European Union and other jurisdiction because the access to our Website may use internet traffic of different jurisdictions, including without limitation the United States of America and European Union. Luxand will disclose personally identifiable information without your permission when required by law, or in good faith belief that such action is necessary to investigate or protect against harmful activities to Luxand guests, visitors, associates, or property (including this Website), or to others. As mentioned above, laws related to personal identifiable information vary by country. For example, personally identifiable information collected in the European Union and its Member States is subject to the EU Directives concerning personal data, privacy and electronic communications, including but not limited to Directive†2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of†12 July 2002 concerning the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector and Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 24 October 1995 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and the subsequent legislation adopted in the EU Member States.
B. COLLECTED INFORMATION
As a visitor to the Website, we may collect both personal and non-personal information about you. Non-personal information includes anonymous information such as demographic data. Under all circumstances, we will only collect the information deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests and our legitimate business objectives. Below for your review is a short description of the information that we may collect from you:
· Personal Information is information that can be used to identify you such as your name, address, telephone number, or email address. We do not collect any Personal Information about you unless you choose to provide it to us by, for example, filling out and submitting an online form. If you choose not to provide Personal Information, you may be unable to use certain features on our Websites.
· Demographic information is anonymous information such as your age, date of birth, gender, hobbies, interests, zip/postal code or country. If demographic information is collected for an activity that also requires Personal Information, we may combine the demographic information with your Personal Information. Combining data allows us to customize the notices we send you and the content we provide you according to your interests and preferences. Demographic information is not considered Personal Information unless it is linked to Personal Information about a specific user. If you choose not to provide certain demographic information, you may not be able to use certain features on our Websites.
· Aggregate information is anonymous data about individuals that is grouped together to study a group or category of services or users. Aggregate information is not considered Personal Information unless it is linked to Personal Information about a specific user.
C. COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We request Personal Information and demographic information to respond to your requests and provide services to you such as: sending email newsletters; participating in online; processing orders through our online store; setting up repair orders; and sending email correspondence. Each category below describes how we handle the requested information.
Browsing the Website
When you use the Website, we or third parties, authorized by us, may also collect certain technical and routing information about your computer to facilitate your use of the Website and our services. When you surf the Internet, your Internet browser (such as Mozilla Firefox or Microsoft Internet Explorer) automatically transmits some information to us every time you access content on one of our internet domains within the Website. Examples of such information include the URL of the Web page you were just on, the IP (or Internet Protocol) address of the computer you are using, or the browser version you are using to access our site. All of this information may be collected by us and used to help improve our offerings to you.
If you purchase goods or services through our online store or elsewhere on our Websites, you may need to provide a valid credit card number, expiration date and credit card security code, in addition to your name, mailing and billing addresses, phone number and email address. Please note that you must be over the age of eighteen (18) to place orders online. All financial information is transmitted through the use of encryption, i.e. a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol via our secure server.
Email Correspondence and Other Communication
We may respond to your email correspondence and communications if such correspondence includes a return email address. Because an email address is Personal Information, we protect the privacy of the sender by limiting access to these email messages. Only employees with a legitimate business need to access the emails are allowed to do so. For quality control purposes, email messages may be kept for a period of time. There may, however, be certain cases where hard copies may be kept on file, such as emails concerning product safety or consumer complaints. Information from email messages will not be used for marketing purposes and will be maintained in a secure location.
Our Website may make chat rooms, forums, message boards, and/or newsgroups (“Public Forums”) available to users. Please remember that any information disclosed in Public Forums becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding whether to disclose your Personal Information in these Public Forums. We do not permit children under thirteen (13) to participate in Public Forums unless they are monitored, the child’s parent or guardian has provided verifiable consent, or the Public Forum complies with the relevant legal requirements in another manner.
D. NETWORK AND INFORMATION SECURITY
We will notify users of a data breach involving unencrypted Personal Information by email or by posting a notice on the affected Website. We also strive to limit access to Personal Information to employees performing a legitimate business function. We review our security procedures periodically to consider appropriate new technology and updated methods. Despite our efforts, no security measure is ever perfect or impenetrable.
It is your responsibility to keep your password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you are sharing a computer with anyone you should always log out before leaving a site or service to protect access to your information from subsequent users.
E. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF INFORMATION
We are the sole owner of the information it gathers on the Website. We do not sell or rent Personal Information to third parties. We may share Personal Information with vendors who help us perform various internal functions necessary to operate our business. We may disclose Personal Information (a) in the good faith belief that we are required to do so by law; (b) if doing so is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process; (c) to respond to any claims; (d) to enforce the terms and conditions of our Websites; or (e) to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of our customers, or the public. We also may disclose your email address to our partners solely to send you email messages you have requested, or to ensure that you do not receive such messages if you have opted out of receiving them. Any vendors or partners with whom we may share Personal Information are permitted to obtain only the Personal Information they need to deliver the services requested. They are required to maintain the confidentiality of the information and are prohibited from using it for any other purpose. In addition, information about our customers, including Personal Information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, sale, transfer of company assets, or acquisition, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable laws.
Our Website uses “cookie” technology. “Cookies” are short pieces of data generated by a web server that a website stores on a user’s computer. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to the Website, it knows who you are and can personalize your visit. Cookies may be linked to Personal Information about you. In addition, cookies are used to:
- measure usage of various pages on our Website to help us make our information more pertinent to your needs and easy for you to access;
- identify and categorized the internet webpages from which the visitor came to the Website and observe the browsing patterns; and
- provide functionality such as online orders, our services and other functionality that we believe would be of interest and value to you.
You may set your browser to block cookies (consult the instructions for your particular browser on how to do this), although doing so may adversely affect your ability to perform certain transactions, use certain functionality and access certain content on our Website.
We maintain log files, which contain Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses. An IP address is a numeric address that is assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider. We do not link IP addresses to Personal Information, unless we notify you or unless necessary to enforce our Websites’ terms and conditions. In general, we use log files to monitor traffic on our Websites and to troubleshoot technical problems. In the event of abuse, however, we may block certain IP addresses.
Choices available to you
You can always choose whether or not to disclose personally identifiable information and that choice will not prevent you from using the Website. Please note, however, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with some of the services dependent upon the collection of this information and you will be given an opportunity to “opt-in” and make your preference choices for any items that are optional and which are not prerequisite for our rendering such services.
You can choose at anytime to opt out of receiving emails from Luxand or from having your personally identifiable information shared with selected companies. If you want to opt out, you can do so by editing your preferences with respect to email or the sharing of information. If you elect to “opt out” we will not, as applicable, share your personal information with third parties or send you emails. However, we may continue to use your personal information for internal purposes, to enhance your user experience or as necessary to administer the site or comply with applicable law.
If you wish to opt out of receiving emails, the sharing or retention of any personal identification information, or otherwise change your personal preferences, you must contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
To ensure that your request is honored, you must provide Luxand with information sufficient for us to accurately identify and access your records. The information we require is your full name, address and the email address you provided to Luxand when you requested services or products. We reserves the right to contact you to verify that we have accurately identified your record.
We do not collect Personal Information from visitors under the age of 13 (“children” or “child”) in connection with the registration on our Website. Nor do we collect any information from children in a manner inconsistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). COPPA provides parents with specific rights regarding their children’s privacy. For additional information and resources on COPPA, please visit the Federal Trade Commission Web site at http://www.ftc.gov/. The Luxand Web site and any products or services available on that site are not directed at children and, therefore, COPPA does not apply. However, we recognize that children may access this Web site and subscribe to the newsletter, purchase products and services, or download software programs. The collection of information is covered above. Parents and legal guardians may request from us to review, delete or stop the collection of the Personally Information of their child. You may do so by contacting us by email at: email@example.com.
For more on how we use information collected from users, including child users, please see our section “Collection and Use of Personal Information” above.
We protect our records in accordance with our obligations as defined by applicable Virginia statutes, including, but not limited to, the Virginia Privacy Protection Act of 1976, the Virginia Freedom of Information Act, and by any applicable U.S. federal laws.

I. PRIVACY-RELATED INQUIRIES AND COMPLAINTS
Please note that if you provide us with inconsistent privacy preferences (for example, by indicating on one occasion that third parties may contact you with marketing offers and indicating on another occasion that they may not), we cannot guarantee that your most recent privacy preference will be honored.
