This policy does not describe information collection policies and practices of websites and platforms that we do not provide. This policy does not cover information you may choose to share with other users of the website.

By providing your email address to us, or by purchasing, downloading or otherwise using any LRI products or services, including, but not limited to, books, curricula, consulting services, lesson plans, websites and similar, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, the LRI Terms of Service, and any other policies, rules or guidelines that may be applicable to any of our services, offers or other features of LRI and agree to be bound by the terms of this Policy.

Information we collect

We collect personally identifiable information about you which you affirmatively choose to submit to us, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number(s), credit/debit card(s) and related billing information. From time to time we automatically collect certain information that may be considered personally identifiable information such as the IP address of your computer or network connection. We also automatically collect other non-personally identifiable information such as the time and date of your visit, your geographic location, the pages and other content that you access, and the number of times you return to the website. This information is used in the aggregate for our internal marketing and similar purposes. This process may involve the automatic placement of a small, removable text file (commonly referred to as a “cookie”) on your computer's hard drive, or the use of tiny graphics with unique identifiers that are used to track the online movements of website users, otherwise known as a web beacon. We may also integrate into the website technology provided by third parties (e.g., Google Analytics) to accomplish this information collection.

How we use the information we collect

We use the information collected primarily to improve our site and to learn about how it is used and accessed. We may also use information we collect to analyze user behavior as a measure of interest in and use of the website, and may disclose such analyses to advertisers or other third parties in the form of aggregate data, such as overall patterns or demographic reports that do not describe or identify any individual user. We may disclose information about you to third parties if we have a good-faith belief that we are required to do so by law or legal process, to respond to legal claims, or to protect our rights, property or safety, or the rights, property or safety of others.

We do not sell, share, rent or trade your personally-identifiable information other than as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time you provide us with your information. We do not share your personally-identifiable information with third parties for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Notwithstanding, we may extend any of our rights under this Privacy Policy to any third party operating on our behalf.

We may disclose information about you to a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, or other sale or disposition of all or a portion of our assets. The successor organization’s use and disclosure of your personally-identifiable information will continue to be subject to this policy unless (i) a court orders otherwise, for example a bankruptcy court; or (ii) the successor organization gives you notice that your personally-identifiable information will be subject to the successor organization’s own policy, along with an opportunity for you to opt out (which may cause you not to be able to continue to use the website). If you submit personally-identifiable information after such a transfer, that information may be subject to the successor entity’s policy.

Data Protection

We use industry standard data security and encryption technology to protect the personally-identifiable, financial, and all other usage information that we collect. No security technology is 100% secure however. We cannot guarantee the security of the servers that are used for our services, or guarantee that there will be no unauthorized access to or use of any of the personally-identifiable and/or financial information stored therein. All information that you disclose to us is at your own risk.

Children’s information

The website is not directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect any personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13, and any such disclosure is strictly prohibited.

Changes to this policy

We reserve the right to change or update this policy, or any policies or practices, at any time without notice to you. Without affecting our rights to change this policy, we will attempt to notify you using the information we have on file of any material changes. Any changes or updates will be effective immediately upon posting to the website.

Do Not Track

We do not track users over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore do not respond to “do not track” signals. Third parties that have content embedded within the service such as a social feature may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific location from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from the service unless you provide it to them directly.
