Please review the following information to understand how the information you provide will be treated.
Information Lei Chic Collects
The information gathered by Lei Chic falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to Lei Chic upon signing up to receive emails and (2) tracking information routinely gathered as visitors navigate through our site.
Voluntarily Supplied Information
You are free to visit leichic.com without identifying yourself. However, if you would like to receive emails we need to collect a few pieces of required information, such as your email address. We’d also like to collect additional information to further define our user community. These items are optional and it is at the discretion of the user to supply such information. To remove yourself from the mailing lists, follow the instructions at the bottom of any newsletter.
Lei Chic's Web server gathers information about all users collectively, such as what areas users visit most frequently and what services users access most often. Lei Chic automatically logs IP addresses, sessions sources, and other data which tracks users' access to Lei Chic. We analyze these logs for funding purposes as well as system performance monitoring. These logs are analyzed for the overall aggregate trends they reveal about our readers, not for the behaviors of individual users. A listing of such data is provided below.
• The Internet Protocol Address (IP Address) of the machine used to
access our Web site*
• The date and time visited
• The pages visited on our site
• The brand and version of the browser used and the type of computer used
• A list of files downloaded or viewed
• Any errors you encountered
*Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data.
*Your IP address does not identify you personally and most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use a "dynamic" form of assigning IP Addresses. This means that you may have a different IP Address each time you visit Lei Chic.
To help make our sites more responsive to the needs of our visitors, we invoke a standard feature found in browser software, called a "cookie," to assign each visitor a unique, random number, a sort of anonymous user ID that resides on your computer. A cookie is a small data file. The cookie doesn't actually identify the visitor, just the computer that a visitor uses to access our site. Unless you voluntarily identify yourself (through registration, for example), we won't know who you are, even if we assign a cookie to your computer. The only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply. A cookie can't read data off your hard drive, and our cookie can't read the cookie files created by other sites. Our sponsors may also assign their own cookies to your browser to track which ads you have viewed, a process that we don't control.
Hyperlinks Accessed at Lei Chic
To make our site more valuable to our visitors, we will be linking content in our emails and website to applicable websites to help you save time. These links termed “hyperlinks” allow the user to click on a web address and navigate to that site automatically.
All of the information is stored on servers at a location designed specifically to ensure that no unauthorized individuals have access to the server or its data.
If Lei Chic changes this privacy statement, we will post the changes at http://www.leichic.com/Lei-Chic/Site-Info/Privacy-Policy so that you will always know what information we gather, how we might use that information, and whether we will disclose it to anyone.
