Data is shared with third parties only when necessary to process a transaction, or to comply with appropriate laws and regulations.
Additional Information Collected Automatically
Certain non-personal information is collected when you browse our Web site, read pages or download information. This information does not identify you personally. It is collected to help us improve our Web site and general services to the public. The items we gather will include the internet address of the computer accessing the site, the type of browser or other client application used, the operating system of the computer, the web pages visited, the referring web pages and the time spent on our site.

Children and Privacy
The LLCC Foundation is committed to complying fully with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act. Accordingly, if a user of the LLCC Foundation Web site is under the age of thirteen, such user is not authorized to provide the LLCC Foundation with personally identifying information, and the Foundation will not use any such information in its database or other data collection activities. The Foundation appreciates cooperation with this federally mandated requirement. Users under the age of thirteen and their parents or guardians are cautioned that the collection of personal information volunteered by unauthorized children online or by e-mail will be treated the same as information given by an adult until the Foundation becomes aware that the user is under the age of thirteen.
Third-party Web Sites
This Web site contains links to a wide variety of other sites. Please be aware that the LLCC Foundation is not responsible for the privacy practices of those other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every Web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by this Web site.

When users submit sensitive information via our site, this information is encrypted and remains secure during all stages of transmission. The LLCC Foundation Web site complies with all State and Federal statutes requiring safeguards on specific types of information. However, due to the rapidly evolving nature of information technologies, no transmission of information over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. While the LLCC Foundation is committed to protecting the privacy of our visitors, the Foundation cannot guarantee the security of any information visitors transmit to Foundation sites, and visitors do so at their own risk.
