PRIVACY POLICY

Like most websites LONAFoundation.org collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LONA Foundation’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LONA Foundation visitors use its website. From time to time, LONA Foundation may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

 

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the LONA Foundation website choose to interact with LONA Foundation in ways that require LONA Foundation to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LONA Foundation gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with LONA Foundation are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LONA Foundation collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LONA Foundation. LONA Foundation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

LONA Foundation may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. However, LONA Foundation does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

LONA Foundation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LONA Foundation’s behalf or to provide services available at LONA Foundation’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. LONA Foundation will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, LONA Foundation discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LONA Foundation believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LONA Foundation, third parties or the public at large. LONA Foundation takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
