LDB COLLECTS INFORMATION FROM YOU. WHAT DOES LDB COLLECT?
Personal Information vs. Non-Personal Information. Our primary goal in collecting information from you is to provide you with an efficient and helpful experience while using the Website. In order to do so, the Website collects two types of information about you: “Personal Information” and “Non-Personal Information”.
“Personal Information” refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are and can be used to identify, contact or locate you. We may also collect and use Personal Information to verify your identity when you are making purchases via the Website. Examples of Personal Information include your full name, first name, last name, your credit card number, your mailing address and/or email address, and your phone number. Generally, we collect Personal Information when you use the Website to make product purchases, fill out surveys, correspond with us, choose to submit testimonials, stories, photos or the like to the Website, or otherwise volunteer information about yourself.
Access and Change to Personal Information. Upon written request, LDB will use reasonable efforts to allow users to update or correct Personal Information previously submitted, but only to the extent such activities will not compromise privacy or security interests. Also, upon a user’s written request, LDB will functionally delete the user and his or her Personal Information from the database where such information is stored; however, it may be impossible to delete a user’s entry without some residual information being retained because of the nature in which backups of data are maintained.
Rights to Collected Personal Information. By using the Website and enabling cookies, you are allowing us to collect data on you. Under federal, international and various state laws, consumers are afforded particular rights in relation to their personal information. In accordance with these rights, we have applied further transparency to ensure users are able to take advantage of these benefits. The individual rights afforded under those laws are as follows:
You retain the right to be informed of the collection and use of their personal data.
You retain the right to access your personal data. This request must be made in writing.
You retain the right to have your data rectified should it be inaccurate, or completed if it is incomplete.
You retain the right to have your personal data erased. This request must be made in writing and is only applicable in certain circumstances.
You retain the right to request that your personal data is restricted or suppressed.
You retain the right to obtain and reuse your data for your own purposes through different services.
vii.You retain the right to object to the processing of your personal data. This is only applicable in certain circumstances.
viii.You retain the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
Information You Provide To Us. You will have the opportunity to provide us with Personal Information and Non Personal Information which we will collect directly from you as follows:
For customers purchasing products. If you make purchases at our online store, we will collect and maintain your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, purchased product information, payment data supported by our website such as debit or credit card number, order tracking number, referring URL, IP address and a password. If you purchase a gift certificate at our online store, we will also collect the name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number of the recipient. Before confirming your order, you will have the opportunity to review the order form and make changes and additions to the information it contains, and these changes will automatically be kept for future use. If you cancel an order or do not complete an order, we may collect and use any email address or other information that you have entered as we would collect and use it if you had completed an order.
Information Collected Through Technology. LDB or its third party service providers may collect information from visitors to the Website regarding the referring URL, your IP address, which browser you used to come to the Website, information regarding your domain server, the country, state and telephone area code where your server is located, your type of computer, timestamp data and the pages of the Website that you viewed during your visit. Some of this information is gathered through the following technologies:
IP Address. You can visit many areas of the Website anonymously without the need to become a registered user. Even in such cases, we may collect IP addresses automatically. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you begin service with an Internet Service Provider (ISP). Each time you access the Website and each time you request one of our pages, our server logs your IP address. Standing alone, your IP address is not necessarily personally identifiable.
Web Beacons. LDB may use a variety of other technical methods for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in web pages and e-mails. We may use these technical methods in HTML e-mails that we send our users to determine whether they have opened those e-mails and/or clicked on links in those e-mails. The information from use of these technical methods may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable.
NOW THAT LDB HAS COLLECTED INFORMATION FROM YOU, HOW IS IT USED?
System Administration. We use your IP Address and other information discussed above in Section 1.4 for the purposes of system administration; to assist in diagnosing problems with our server(s); to monitor our system performance, the level of activity on the Website and specific portions of our Website, how the traffic on our Website is apportioned and from where it may come; and to gather broad demographic information about our Website visitors and customers, so we can make it easier and more convenient for you to navigate and use the Website, and make our Website more useful and better targeted for you and our community in general.

SAFEGUARDING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.
Our Security Measures. LDB’s credit card transactions and order fulfillment are handled by established third-party banking institutions, process agents and distribution institutions. They receive the information they need to verify and authorize your credit card transactions and to ship your order. When collecting credit card information for online purchases, we offer secure server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to prevent someone from intercepting it and misusing it. When you access your account information, the information is kept on a secure server. Furthermore, all of the customer data we collect is protected against unauthorized access by physical security means. Although LDB uses reasonable efforts to safeguard the security of your Personal Information, transmissions made on or through the internet are vulnerable to attack and cannot be guaranteed to be secure. In addition, submissions made via email are not protected by SSL technology and are vulnerable to interception during transmission. You hereby acknowledge that LDB is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner. LDB will promptly notify those persons whose information has been compromised should there be a security breach.
Protecting Yourself. You are solely responsible for safeguarding and maintaining the secrecy of your User ID, passwords and/or any account information in your possession or control. Please be careful and responsible whenever you are online. The website contains links to third parties who may collect information directly from you. Each of the websites linked from the Website have separate privacy policies and data collection practices, independent of LDB, and LDB has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites nor does LDB make any warranties or representations about the contents, products or services offered on such websites or the security of any information you provide to them. In addition, it is important to keep us updated with your most current contact information. You may ask us in writing to have the information on your account deleted, updated or corrected, subject to Section 1.2; however, because we keep track of past purchases, you cannot delete information associated with past purchases. Note that we may retain changed or deleted information for archival or other purposes.
Managing Your Information.

Children, Parental Consent Policy. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act imposes certain requirements on websites directed toward children under 13 years of age that collect information on those children, or on websites that know they are collecting Personal Information from children under 13 years of age. We want to let you know that it is LDB’s policy not to collect Personal Information from any person under 13 because children are not permitted to use the Website or services on the Website, and we request that children under 13 years of age not submit any Personal Information to us via the Website. We require that all individuals provide a valid credit card number before completing a purchase order. If we learn that we have inadvertently gathered Personal Information from children under 13 years of age, we will attempt to notify such child’s parent or guardian and erase such information from our records, unless the child’s parent or guardian consents to our maintaining such information.
