INFORMATION SHARING AND DISCLOSURE

Luxpop does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad. For example, if you click on a 980 nm ad, the advertiser may deduce that you use or may be interested in using 980 pumps.

Luxpop may present ad links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our calculations, customized content and advertising. Similarly, Luxpop can use this information to determine how many times an advertisement is clicked in order to calculate how much the advertiser should be charged.

We take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of data. These include internal reviews of our data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures, as well as physical security measures to guard against unauthorized access to systems where we store personal data.

We restrict access to personal information to Luxpop staff who need to know that information in order to operate, develop or improve our services. These individuals are bound by confidentiality obligations and may be subject to discipline, including termination and criminal prosecution, if they fail to meet these obligations.

The security of your personal information is a high priority for Luxpop. We maintain appropriate safeguards and current security standards to protect your personal information, whether recorded on paper or captured electronically, against unauthorized access, disclosure, or misuse.

Although we cannot take responsibility for any theft, misuse, unauthorized disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction of data by a third party, we take reasonable precautions to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.

ACCESSING AND UPDATING PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you use luxpop.com, we make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your personal information and either to correct this data if it is inaccurate or to delete such data at your request if it is not otherwise required to be retained by law or for legitimate business purposes.
