Like most website operators, LVB Ltd 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. LVB Ltd's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LVB Ltd's visitors use its website. From time to time, LVB Ltd may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally Identifying Information
Certain visitors to LVB Ltd's website choose to interact with LVB Ltd in ways that require LVB Ltd to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LVB Ltd gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, through our contact forms in some cases we may ask for an email address, name, telephone number. In each case, LVB Ltd collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor's interaction with LVB Ltd. LVB Ltd does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
LVB Ltd may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. For instance, LVB Ltd may monitor the most popular pages on the LVB Ltd site or use spam screened by our filters to help identify spam. LVB Ltd may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LVB Ltd does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
LVB Ltd discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LVB Ltd's behalf or to provide services available at LVB Ltd's websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organisations may be located outside of your home country, by using LVB Ltd's websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. LVB Ltd will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organisations, as described above, LVB Ltd discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally -identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LVB Ltd believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LVB Ltd, third parties or the public at large. If you are a user of an LVB Ltd website and have supplied your email address, LVB Ltd may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what's going on with LVB Ltd and our products. We primarily use our social media channels or blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.
We also may be required to disclose an individual's personal information in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
LVB Ltd acknowledges that all individuals have the right to access the personal information/data that we maintain about them. An individual who seeks access, or who seeks to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data, should direct their query to email@example.com. If requested to remove data, we will respond within a reasonable timeframe, not to exceed one week.
If we ever were to engage in any onward transfers of your data with third parties for a purpose other than which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized, we would provide you with an opt-out choice to limit the use and disclosure of your personal data.
