Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (the "Policy") explains how this web site (the "Site") treats "personal information" it collects from its visitors. "Personal information" is information that is personally identifiable like a name, address, email address, social security number, or phone number, and that is not otherwise publicly available.

SECTION 1: CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

This Site does not collect personal information from visitors unless such information is provided directly by the visitors or through the visitors' browsers.

For example, this Site allows visitors to provide personal information in order to post content to designated portions of the Site. Also, our third party web hosting company uses industry-standard software to track and summarize web log and navigational information (i.e., IP addresses, number of hits, page views, user browser types, etc.).

SECTION 2: USES OF PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED

Personal information provided through use of this Site is not sold or rented to third-parties.

We may use information provided through use of this Site to respond to a visitor's request. For example, if a visitor completes the contact form available on the Site, we may contact him or her using the contact information he or she provided through this Site.

We may use information provided through use of this Site to measure and analyze Site traffic.

We may also use information provided through use of this Site in accordance with legal proceedings (i.e., to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims). Similarly, we may use such information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to any person, violations of our Terms of Use or Posting Terms, problems with this Site, or as otherwise required by law. Furthermore, in the event that any Marc J. Lane entity (or such entity's assets) is acquired by or merged with a third party, personal information collected by this Site may be one of the assets transferred.

SECTION 3: WEB SITES NOT COVERED BY THIS POLICY

This Policy does NOT apply to third party web sites, including:

  • Web Sites Linking to this Site. Other web sites may from time to time link to this Site.
  • Web Sites this Site Links to. This Site may from time to time link to other web sites.
  • Web Sites "Framed" by this Site. Framing by this Site allows a visitor to view content provided (and managed) by a third party without losing access to this Site's navigational menu.

Since this Policy does not apply to any third party web site, you should consult with any applicable third party web site to learn about its privacy policies and security measures. We are not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on such third party web sites.


SECTION 4: SECURITY MEASURES

This Site's security is handled by a company that specializes in hosting web sites. We believe that this company provides maintenance and safeguards that we could not offer as effectively on our own. We are not responsible for the activities and practices of our web hosting company.

Visitors should assume that any electronic communication transmitted through this Site is non-confidential and not protected by the attorney client privilege. We will not be liable or responsible if information that belongs to an individual is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient, or is otherwise accessed and used without our permission. By submitting information through this Site, you assume these risks.

Moreover, as stated in Section 3, individual account information "framed" by this Site is provided (and maintained) by a third party web site that states that it maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard personal information. We are not responsible for the activities and practices that take place on this third party web site.
