What types of information does Louse Herman Collect?
Louse Herman gathers two basic types of information through the Site: “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”) and “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” (or “Non-PII”). Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies you as an individual; that is, your name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address as well as any user name and password you create on the Site. PII also includes payment information, including, without limitation, your credit card number, the expiration date of your credit card, your billing address, and your shipping information (collectively, “Payment Information”). Non-Personally Identifiable Information is any other information, such as aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.
(i) Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
You do not have to provide PII to use the Site. However, in order for you to take advantage of particular opportunities provided through the Site (for example, to register to enter an online tournament or to make a purchase), we may require that you furnish PII. We collect PII from you only if you voluntarily provide it to us — for example, when you register to enter an online tournament or for a chance to win a prize, when you register to receive our newsletters, when you make a purchase through the Site or when you contact us through the Site. Please note that before you can use some of the activities above, you may be required to register and create a user name and password.
(ii) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
When you visit and interact with the Site, Louse Herman and third parties with whom Louse Herman has contracted to provide services to Louse Herman may collect Non-PII (for example, a catalog of the Site pages you visit). Non-PII is generally collected from five different sources: cookies, IP addresses, MAC addresses, log files and information you voluntarily provide.
- a) Cookies
- b) IP Addresses
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. Although we do not generally collect IP addresses, we may collect and use your IP address when we feel it is necessary to protect our service, the Site, customers, or others.
- c) Log Files
Other Non-PII that may be collected by Louse Herman is in the form of logs – files that record website activity, including how many “hits” a particular web page is getting (a.k.a. “navigational data”). These entries are generated anonymously, and enable Louse Herman to gather statistics about users’ browsing habits, assess overall website activity, track interest in advertised sales, and maintain website security. We also use the log file entries for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online services we provide you. Log files are used internally only, and may be combined with data collected via cookies to help us aggregate behavior patterns of registered users.
- d) Other Information Collected Automatically
When you participate in an Event (as defined below) through the Site, we may collect certain other information about you or your computer, such as your game board serial number.
- e) Information You Voluntarily Provide
Louse Herman also collects Non-PII (e.g. your interests and demographic information, such as geographic location, etc.) when you voluntarily provide such information to us.
How does Louse Herman use the information it collects?
(i) Personally Identifiable Information
Generally, PII that we collect for a particular purpose is used only for that purpose. For example, if you email us a question, your PII will only be used to provide a response to your inquiry. Similarly, PII collected from those who register on the Site is used to provide registrants the benefits that come along with registration, which often include a subscription to our newsletter, access to the latest game news and special offers, contests, tournament prize claims and other features.
If you wish to purchase any product or service made available through the Site (each such purchase, a “Transaction“), we may collect Payment Information from you related to such Transaction, and may use such Payment Information in order to complete the Transaction and, if applicable, to fulfill your purchase. We may also provide such Payment Information to third parties as necessary to complete your Transaction (for example, to process your credit card).
In some instances, however, you may also be given the option to have your PII used for an activity or service different from the activity or service that you are requesting (for example, have your email address added to our newsletter mailing list when entering a contest). If you choose to receive these additional services, we will use your PII to provide them to you.
From time to time, we are approached by third party companies and organizations that provide products or services that we believe may be of interest to you. To extend these products or services to you, we may use your PII to send out notices on their behalf, subject to your right to opt-out (See “Can I choose how my Personally Identifiable Information is used?” below). We strive to limit the notices and communications to those that we think you would appreciate receiving.
In addition, PII may be used for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online products and services we provide you and better meet your needs. Additionally, we may use PII that we collect to ensure that someone who is cheating is excluded, and to enforce our rights under our Terms of Service. No matter what method we use to collect PII and no matter how we use that information, we will only collect the PII deemed reasonably necessary to fulfill your online requests and our legitimate business objectives.
(ii) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Because Non-PII collected on the Site does not personally identify you, Louse Herman may use Non-PII for any purpose. For example, Non PII may be used for our internal marketing and demographic studies, so we can constantly improve the online products and services we provide you and better meet your needs, and such Non-PII may also be analyzed in order to track your standing in an Event (as defined below), the popularity of certain pages of the Site, the success of our email notifications, traffic levels on the Site and other usage data, all of which helps us to improve the Site and related services and to gauge interest in the Site and Louse Herman .
Who is collecting my information and is it shared with anyone?
(i) Personally Identifiable Information
generally, the PII that you disclose on the Site is collected by Louse Herman or by a service provider on Louse Herman’s behalf, and is used in accordance with the practices set forth above. Service Providers (or agents) are entities that provide support for the internal operations of the Site and who only use the PII we share with them for the purpose of carrying out the service you have requested (e.g., newsletter delivery, fulfillment of contest entries, and fulfillment of any Transactions, including processing your credit card).
In addition, certain PII, including your user name, town or city and state will be available to the public if you choose to participate in an Event and are featured in one of our ranking tables.
We also reserve the right to disclose your PII if we believe that we are required to do so; (a) by law; (b) to comply with legal process or governmental requests; (c) to enforce our Terms of Service; (d) to protect our operations; (e) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of Louse Herman, you, or others; and (f) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. As an example, we may, to the fullest extent the law allows, disclose PII about you to law enforcement agencies to assist them in identifying individuals who have been or may be engaged in unlawful activities.
In addition, in the event of a merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Louse Herman’s assets or stock (including without limitation in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings), any information collected by Louse Herman on the Site may be transferred to its successor or assign, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.
(ii) Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Generally, Non-PII is collected by Louse Herman and its vendors, and Louse Herman may share Non-PII (which does not personally identify you) with our affiliates and with third parties for any purpose. For example, we may say a particular game title’s audience is X% female and Y% male. This data is used to customize the content and advertising of the Site to deliver a better experience for our visitors. It can also help tailor Louse Herman’s products and services to meet the needs of our customers.
What happens if I refuse to provide my Personally Identifiable Information to AssureMom.com?
If you choose not to submit PII when requested, you may not be able to use many of the features offered on the Site. For example, if you refuse to disclose your name or email address, you may not be able to submit a question to customer service, or to participate in an Event. However, to simply browse and view certain content on the Site, you do not need to give us any PII.
What is Louse Herman’s policy regarding links to third party sites?
Can I choose how my Personally Identifiable Information is used?
If you do not want to receive our newsletters or other email communications (excluding Critical Emails) from Louse Herman, please opt-out from these services at the time of registration or collection of PII. If you have opted-in and, at a later time, wish to opt-out, please click the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of your most current email from AssureMom.com. If you are experiencing problems with opting out, please contact Louse Herman at info@AtlanticBeachClubs.com or Louse Herman PO Box 22684, Fort Lauderdale FL 33335.
How can I access my Personally Identifiable Information?
We provide you with several options for reviewing, correcting, updating or otherwise modifying PII that you have previously provided through the Site:
- You may contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. You may contact us at http://louiseherman.com/contact.
In each event, you must clearly indicate the information that you wish to have changed, or clearly indicate that you wish to have your PII removed from our database. We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as is reasonably possible.
Please note that despite any removal of or change to PII requested pursuant to this section, we may need to retain certain information for recordkeeping purposes, and there may also be residual information that will remain within our databases and other records, which will not be removed or changed. We also reserve the right, from time to time, to re-contact former users of the Site. Finally, we are not responsible for informing third parties (including without limitation our third party vendors and/or third party sponsors) with whom we have already shared your PII of any changes requested pursuant to this section, or for removing information from or causing information to be removed from the databases or records of such entities.
What safeguards does Louse Herman use to protect my Personally Identifiable Information?
Louse Herman maintains appropriate safeguards that ensure the security, integrity, and privacy of the PII we collect and store about you. These safeguards include, among other things, limiting access to such data to those employees performing a legitimate business function; technical security measures, such as encryption or passwords, to prevent unauthorized access; and the storage of data on secure servers or computers inaccessible by modem.
We also have security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control (i.e., maintain data quality). We also take reasonable steps to ensure that third parties to whom we transfer PII provide sufficient protection of such data.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, although we strive to protect your PII, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us through or in connection with the Site. No method of transmitting or storing data is completely secure. You acknowledge and agree that any information you transmit through the Site is so transmitted at your own risk. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with the Site is no longer secure, you must immediately notify us of the problem by contacting us in accordance with the section entitled “Contact Information,” below (please note that physical mail notification will delay the time it takes for us to respond to the problem).
