Lasting Legacies (“Lasting Legacies“) at http://www.lasting-legacies.net respects your privacy and has taken steps to safeguard your information. This policy was written to explain what information we may collect from you, why we collect it and how we use it. You are encouraged to read the following information carefully.
Like most website operators, Lasting Legacies collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Lasting Legacies’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Lasting Legacies’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Lasting Legacies may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Lasting Legacies also collects potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on lasting-legacies.net blogs/sites. Lasting Legacies only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Lasting Legacies’ websites choose to interact with Lasting Legacies in ways that require Lasting Legacies to gather personally identifying information. The amount and type of information that Lasting Legacies gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
For example, we ask visitors who sign up for one of our resources at lasting-legacies.net to provide a name (or username) and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Lasting Legacies are asked to provide additional information, which may include telephone numbers for consultations and, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to process purchase transactions.
In each case, Lasting Legacies collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Lasting Legacies. Lasting Legacies does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
All personally identifying information is voluntarily provided by visitors who elect to receive one of our resources, products, or services. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from receiving resources or engaging in certain website-related activities.
Lasting Legacies does not collect any personally identifying information without each visitor’s consent, whether it is through our website or one of our social media channels (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter). If visitors choose to interact with Lasting Legacies via social media, we may collect the personal information visitors elect to provide, which may include the visitors’ profile names. Note that Lasting Legacies abides by the privacy policies of each of the aforementioned social media sites and only collects and stores personal data as permitted by them.
When visitors arrive at Lasting Legacies’ website after clicking a link from another site (someone else’s blog, website, social media platform), such personally identifiable information as the visitors’ IP address and country of origin may be collected and stored by the company/individual that owns the blog/website/social media platform that contained the link, as well as Lasting Legacies. Lasting Legacies is not responsible for the privacy of visitors’ information stored by those other companies/individuals.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Lasting Legacies discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Lasting Legacies’ behalf or to provide services available at Lasting Legacies’ websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Lasting Legacies’ websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
Lasting Legacies will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Lasting Legacies discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Lasting Legacies believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lasting Legacies, third parties or the public at large.
If you are a registered user of a Lasting Legacies website and have supplied your email address, Lasting Legacies may occasionally send you emails to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Lasting Legacies and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms such as a contact form), we reserve the right to publish the request (but not your personally identifying data) in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
Lasting Legacies takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Lasting Legacies occasionally works with affiliate partners. You may receive marketing emails from us notifying you about these vetted providers who offer complementary services or products that we believe you may be interested in. If you elect to participate in the proffered affiliate programs and voluntarily provide personally identifiable information, that information will be used by both Lasting Legacies and the affiliate company.
Lasting Legacies also occasionally outsources certain business functions to trusted third-party business vendors such as order fulfillment and shipping companies, administrative and customer service providers, and credit card processing companies.
Below is a list of third-party companies used by Lasting Legacies (as of 5.24.18):
If Lasting Legacies, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Lasting Legacies goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Lasting Legacies may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
