Following termination or deactivation of your Member account, Laflife may retain your profile information and User Content for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, or audit purposes. Furthermore, Laflife may retain and continue to use indefinitely all information (including User Content) contained in your comments and communications to other Users or posted to public or semi-public areas of the Service after termination or deactivation of your Member account.
Laflife may use certain information about you and/or your User Content internally for purposes such as analyzing how the Service is used, diagnosing service or technical problems, maintaining security, and personalizing content.
Laflife reserves the right, but has no obligation, to monitor the User Content you post on the Service. We reserve the right to remove any such information or material for any reason or no reason, including without limitation if in our sole opinion such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law or our Terms of Service, or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party. Laflife also reserves the right to remove information upon the request of any third party.
How We Share Your Information
Personally Identifiable Information
Our Services allow you to share information about yourself with other individuals and other companies. Consider your own privacy and personal safety when sharing your information with anyone.
We do not share your personal information with third parties other than as follows:
- With your consent; for example, when you agree to our sharing your information with other third parties for their own marketing purposes subject to their separate privacy policies;
- To (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process or other government request, (b) enforce our Terms of Service, including the investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) investigate and defend ourselves against any third party claims or allegations, (d) protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of Laflife, its users or the public as required or permitted by law and (e) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues;
- In connection with any merger, sale of company assets, reorganization, financing, change of control or acquisition of all or a portion of our business by another company or third party; and
- With third party vendors, consultants and other service providers that perform services on our behalf, in order to carry out their work for us.
We may also share information with others in an aggregated form that does not directly identify you.
As we develop our business, we may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer or assign such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution.
Any personal information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the Service, such as User Content (including surveys, ratings, votes, predictions, polls, comments, answers to questions and other User Content), becomes available to the public, as controlled by any applicable privacy settings. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users have copied or saved that information.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties to help them understand the usage patterns for certain Laflife services.
Protecting Your Information
Protecting user privacy and Personal Information is a high priority for Laflife and we take reasonable measures (such as requiring a password with a minimum character count) to help protect your personal information in an effort to present loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. Unfortunately, no electronic communication over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to take great care to protect your Personal Information, we cannot warrant the security of any information that you submit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
We also take precautions to protect your Personal Information off-line. Access to all user information is restricted. Only our employees, agents and processors whose jobs require accessing users' Personal Information are granted database access or administrator-level accounts on servers that contain such Personal Information. Finally, all servers containing users' Personal Information require a secure login to access them remotely.
Remember to sign off our Site and close your browser window when you are finished using it. This is to ensure that others cannot pose as you online. This is especially important if you are at a terminal that is accessible to others, such as the library, at school, at the workplace or at an internet café.
Laflife cares about the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Laflife or guarantee that your information on the Service may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. Your privacy settings may also be affected by changes to the functionality of Laflife's distributors, such as social networks. Laflife is not responsible for the functionality or security measures of any third party.
To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as requesting a unique password) to verify your identity before granting you access to your account. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your unique password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from Laflife, at all times.
Your Choices About Your Information
You may, of course, decline to submit personally identifiable information through the Service, in which case Laflife may not be able to provide certain services to you. You can review and request a correction of the information about you that Laflife keeps on file by contacting us directly at email@example.com.
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, Laflife does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 is allowed to provide any personal information to or on Laflife. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
