Privacy Policy

-

LaPTechS takes your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our Privacy Policy ("Policy").

  1. This Policy applies to the LaPTechS website ("Website"). This Policy does not apply to other companies' or organizations' websites to which we link. You should carefully review the privacy policies of those websites in order to determine how they treat your personal information.
  2. This Policy describes what types of information we gather about you, how we use it, under what circumstances we disclose it to third-parties, and your rights to update or correct it.
  3. This Policy does not apply to the practices of companies or websites that LaPTechS does not own or control or to people that LaPTechS does not employ or manage.

Information Gathered From All Visitors

Aggregate Data:

LaPTechS gathers certain generic information with respect to customers' use of this Website. Information may include number of unique visitors, the frequency with which they visit, and the areas on this Website that they favor. These statistics are very much like television ratings that tell the networks how many people tuned in to a program. We only use this type of data in the aggregate, on a collective basis, in summary form, rather than on an individual basis. This data helps us determine the extent to which our customers use certain parts of this Website, which, in turn, enables us to make it as appealing as possible.

LaPTechS may also share aggregate data of customers' collective use of this Website with advertisers, sponsors, and other companies with which we do business ("Affiliates" or "Business Partners"). We do this so they, too, can improve functionality and offer services and materials that users want.

Cookies:

This Website uses "cookies." Cookies are pieces of information or data sent to your browser from a web server and stored on your computer's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies tell our servers and/or our hosting provider's servers that you've visited before and can help to make your visit more personal so you don't have to re-enter info on a return visit. Cookies also allow us to count the number of unique and return visitors who use this Website.

Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can reset your browser to notify you when you've received a cookie or, alternatively, to refuse to accept cookies. It is important to note that you may not be able to use certain features on this Website if you choose not to accept cookies. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on this Website.

Third-Party Advertiser Cookies:

LaPTechS may use third-party advertising companies who use cookies to serve our ads on the Internet. To do so, these companies may use anonymous information about your visits to this Website and other websites. This information can include: date/time of banner ad shown, the banner ad that was shown, their cookie, the IP address. This information can also be used for online preference marketing purposes.

LaPTechS does not use or have access to this information. If you want to prevent a third-party advertiser from setting and/or reading cookies on your computer, currently you may either visit each ad network's websites individually and opt out or visit the websites of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") to opt-out of all network advertising cookies.

IP Addresses:

LaPTechS may collect and analyses traffic on this Website by keeping track of the IP addresses of our visitors. An IP address is a unique number assigned to your computer when you are using your browser on the Internet. We log this information so that we can monitor things like the number of visitors visiting this Website; however, we do not link your IP address to any personally identifying information.

Uses of Personal Information:

If you have provided us your consent via opt-in subscription, the information we have collected about you that we may use include, but are not limited to, the following communication methods:

  • To send personalized, targeted information that we think our users will find relevant, either from LaPTechS or directly from its Business Partners;
  • To contact the user for feedback and surveys; and
  • To send the user via electronic mail other information about LaPTechS or its Business Partners.

On-Site Advertising:

LaPTechS may also use information about you to target advertising while you are visiting this Website. We may use cookie files to assure that you will not be served the same ads repeatedly.

Disclosure Exceptions:

Notwithstanding the above policies, LaPTechS reserves the right to disclose your personal information to appropriate third-parties if we are required to do so by law or we believe that such action is necessary:

  • To comply with legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena or court order;
  • To protect the company's rights and property;
  • To investigate reports of users sending material using a false e-mail address or users sending harassing, threatening, or abusive messages;
  • To protect LaPTechS against misuse or unauthorized use of this Website and/or the LaPTechS service; or
  • During emergencies, such as when we believe someone's physical safety is at risk.

Your Personal Information

Sale of Assets:

In the event that LaPTechS and/or its units or subsidiaries are ever sold, acquired, merged, liquidated, reorganized, or otherwise transferred, we reserve the right to transfer our user databases together with any personally identifiable information contained therein, to a third-party acquiring LaPTechS' assets.

Use Common Sense in All Your Online Activities:

Even the best policy can't protect your online privacy and security in all circumstances. Unscrupulous advertisers, hackers, and scam artists are constantly searching the Internet looking for new targets. Your best protection is to understand the limits to privacy on the Internet and use common sense in all of your on-line activities.

Be aware that e-mail is an inherently insecure form of communication. Remember that third-parties are sometimes able to illegally intercept your unencrypted messages, including online greetings.

General

Changes to the Privacy Policy:

LaPTechS will occasionally update this Policy in response to changing business circumstances and legal developments. Any material changes to this Policy or in how LaPTechS uses your personally identifiable information will also be prominently indicated under this "Changes to the Privacy Policy" section. LaPTechS encourages you to periodically review this Policy to be informed of how we are protecting your information. You may review our Policy anytime as it will always be linked to this Website.
