LAKE is committed our user privacy and using our technology in the safest way. We work hard to earn your trust, and therefore we will never sell your personal information to third parties for marketing purposes or share your contact information with another user without your consent.
How We Collect Your Information
The first thing to remember about privacy is that there is only so much information that any website can collect without your answering of specific questions. For example, in order to post any content on the LAKE website, you must first register. During the registration process you are required to provide certain personally identifiable information, such as your e-mail address.
Any content you post on the LAKE website becomes public. By submitting any content, this information may be collected and used by others. User Content may be also used by LAKE magazine as described in our Terms of Service. We are not responsible for any personally identifiable information that you choose to include in such User Content. You understand and acknowledge that, even after removal, copies of User Content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or if other users have copied or stored your User Content.
Use of your Personal Information
LAKE's website is based on a platform built by LOVMedia.Net. Your registration is handled through LOVMedia.Net's OpenWeddingID and subsequently all of your information is stored and used through their technology.
Through the use of LOVMedia.Net's platform, LAKE collects and uses your personal information to operate the LAKE website and deliver the services you have requested. LAKE also uses your personally identifiable information to inform you of other products or services available from LAKE and its affiliates.
LAKE does not sell, rent or lease its user lists to third parties.
LAKE will only use and share your information as described in this policy.
Like most websites, LAKE uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a tiny data file which resides on your computer and allows LAKE to recognize you as a user when you return to the LAKE website from the same computer and browser. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the LAKE Website or Services you visit.
Third Party Advertisers
Advertisements, promotions and offers from third-party advertisers may be provided to you while you are visiting the LAKE website. We may also use third-party widgets (i.e. Facebook plug-ins). These companies may employ cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons). Any information that these third parties collect via cookies and action tags is completely anonymous. LAKE does not have access to or control of the cookies or action tags that may be placed by the third-party. These widgets have no access to your contact information stored on LAKE unless you choose to share it with them.
Third Party Content
LAKE follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personally identifiable information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. We use industry standard efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal identifiable information, such as firewalls and Secure Socket Layers (SSL) where appropriate. We also protect the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
But no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can send us an email at [email protected]
Once you become a registered user of LAKE, you will receive an account, accessible by a password of your choosing. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password and account. Furthermore, you are entirely responsible for any and all activities that occur under your account. You agree to immediately notify LAKE of any unauthorized use of your account or any other breach of security known to you.
Though we make every effort to preserve your privacy we may need to disclose personal information when required by law wherein we have a good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with a current judicial proceeding, a court order or legal process served on our Web site.
