A key part of this process helps ensure that all information we have about you is both current and accurate. If your information changes, we urge you to update your information in your Account Profile and if you ever discover inaccuracies in our data notify us immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We only use your information as appropriate to provide you with quality services and to ensure security. For example, we may use the information collected from you to verify your identity and contact information. We may also use this information to register you as a user or to issue you a Website password. This information helps us improve our services to you.

A visitor to our Website who does not register to become a user is not required to reveal any personally identifiable information (Personal Information). We do not collect Personal Information from your computer when you browse this Website. Unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide us with Personal Information, we will not know your name, your email address, or any other personally identifiable information. We collect some information about visitors indirectly through standard web logs, including IP address and what browser is being used. However, we only use this information in the aggregate to administer and improve our Website.
If, while visiting our Website, you request information about LUGDEN or the products and services we offer, we may ask you to provide certain Personal Information, such as your name, mailing address, email address and phone number. If you elect to furnish this information, we will collect it and use it so that we may respond to your request for additional information about us. (You may elect not to provide this information about yourself, but doing so may limit your ability to receive information about our products and services.) If you wish to register as a user on the LUGDEN platform, we will ask you to provide certain contact Personal Information, such as your name, email address, address and phone number, as well as sensitive identifying Personal Information. If you elect to furnish this information, we will collect it and use it so that we may register you as a user of the LUGDEN Platform and provide our service to you, maintain the sanctity of the transaction and to ensure your security and the confidentiality of information you post to the Website. (You may elect not to provide this information about yourself, but doing so will limit your ability to utilize the LUGDEN Platform.)
The information we learn from customers helps us personalize and continually improve your LUGDEN experience. Here are the types of information we gather.
Information You Give Us: We receive and store any information you enter on our Web site or give us in any other way. You can choose not to provide certain information, but then you might not be able to take advantage of many of our features. We use the information that you provide for such purposes as responding to your requests, customizing your experience, improving our service, and communicating with you.
Automatic Information: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, like many Web sites, we use “cookies,” and we obtain certain types of information when your Web browser accesses LUGDEN.com or advertisements and other content served by or on behalf of LUGDEN.com on other Web sites.
Mobile: When you download or use apps created by LUGDEN or our subsidiaries, we may receive information about your location and your mobile device, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with location-based services, such as deal information, advertising, search results, and other personalized content. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services.
E-mail Communications: To help us make e-mails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open or click on an e-mail from LUGDEN.com if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please adjust your Communication Preferences.

We employ a software technology called Google Analytics, that helps us better manage content on our Website by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users.

We also maintain appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards, security standards and procedures that meet or exceed industry standards. All personal and general information that we collect is stored on a secure server that is protected by firewalls designed to block unauthorized outside access. Because laws applicable to personal information may vary by jurisdiction, we may implement additional measures that vary depending on the legal requirements applicable in a particular jurisdiction. Information collected on our Website is generally processed and stored in the United States. The security of your Personal Information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and use SSL encryption whenever we transmit your sensitive information.
