The LCVB collects two types of information:
Personal Information When you sign up for services or request information, you may be asked to provide personal information. Personal data may also be requested when registering for events or email services. This information will not be released without authorization from you and we will not disclose personal identification information.
Web Site Activity Data Activity data is gathered through several methods, and is tracked as a whole rather than individually. This allows us to track the LCVB Web site — we never use it to personally identify you. By tracking we can build the most effective Web site for all visitors. Generally, we look at how well pages, products or sections of the Web site perform based on traffic. Specifically, we can determine which areas are most effective or appropriate based on the amount of traffic to particular areas.
The LCVB will not disclose to any business personal information that identifies you to any third party without your consent unless we clearly define the nature and manner of disclosure or disclosure is legally required or to protect our rights.
When using some of our Web sites and signing up for certain selected services (such as information requests), users are required to give contact information (such as name, email address, mailing address). We also may collect demographic information (such as travel habits and preferences). For internal purposes, we use this information to communicate with users and provide requested services, and, for our Web site visitors, to provide a more personalized experience on our sites. We use aggregate demographic information about our audience to improve our service, for marketing purposes and/or industry reporting purposes.
If users wish to subscribe to our email newsletter, we ask for contact information (such as name, email address and, occasionally demographic information). We use this information in the same manner as we use contact information in the registration process described above. Recipients of our newsletters can unsubscribe using the instructions listed at the end of the email newsletter.
Surveys and Contests
From time to time we invite users to provide information via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether to disclose requested contact information (such as name and mailing address) and demographic information (such as zip code or job title). In addition to other uses set forth in this policy, contact information collected in connection with surveys and contests is used to notify the winners and award prizes, to monitor or improve the use and satisfaction of the site.
Communications with Us
We have features where users can submit information to us (such as our feedback forms and contact information for each LCVB staff member).
Notification of Privacy Changes
Our Web site contains links to other sites. The LCVB is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each Web site to which we may link that may collect personally identifiable information.
