How collected information is used
The primary purpose of gathering information is to allow LVC to link a name and contact information to a user ID or browsing experience. Once you have provided appropriate information, you will be enabled to use a variety of products or personalized services, and to access online help or support.
How we work to keep information secure
LVC takes precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, we make commercially reasonable efforts to protect your information both online and off-line.
A cookie is a piece
of data stored on the user's hard drive that sometimes links to personally identifiable
information about the user. LVC uses session cookies which are designed not
to be permanent or persistent. The session cookie is designed so that, once
you close your browser, the cookie will simply terminate. If you configure your
browser to reject cookies, you may still use some, but not all, portions of
our site. For example, accessing our online journals requires that your browser
accept cookies. We recommend closing browsers on publicly available machines
(such as those in libraries) after use.
Disclosure of aggregated and other information
We use IP addresses and other user information to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
LVC sites contain links to other sites, and other sites have links to LVC. Please be aware that LVC is not responsible for the privacy practices (or other practices, goods, services, or content) of other sites. We encourage you to be aware when you leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by LVC.
Users who participate
in LVC forums or discussions may have their messages or postings edited for
size and/or content. Submissions to such forums explicitly grant such editorial
rights to LVC staff who reserve the right to remove inappropriate submissions.
By participating in an online forum or discussion, you consent to our use or
disclosure of any content you submit.
Protection of Children's Personal Information
LVC is a general audience site and does not knowingly collect any personal information from children.
