Use of Information
As a general policy, no personally identifiable information, such as your name or address, is automatically collected from your visit to LEND. However, certain non-personal information is recorded by the standard operation of LEND’s Internet servers. Information such as the type of browser being used, its operating system, and your IP address is gathered in order to enhance your online experience. For example, it may be used to tailor content and advertising to your interests.
In special cases, LEND may disclose user information when there is reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to, or interference (either intentionally or unintentionally) with, LEND’s rights or property, other LEND web site users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.
Data security for all personally identifiable information is extremely important to us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we strive to protect your personal information, LEND cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or from our online forms, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems.
