The Lifestyle Republic
Lifestyle Republic collects different types of information in connection with the rendering of our services and the administration of our Web site. Lifestyle Republic will not voluntarily disclose or sell any information gathered about our users (“Personal Information”) to third parties for solicitation or other reasons unless you consent, and except as otherwise provided below.
Lifestyle Republic may from time to time approach its users regarding product, service, and other information, or offers which Lifestyle Republic feels, based on your Personal Information, may be of interest to our users. If you do not wish to receive such information, you can contact us in the manner provided above. In addition, Personal Information may be released to third parties (i) if Lifestyle Republic is required by law to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena, or court order; (ii) if release of such information is required in connection with the maintenance and administration or our site; (iii) in the very rare circumstance in which Lifestyle Republic believes in good faith there is a threat to the physical security of one of our users or others. Although it is Lifestyle Republic’s policy to attempt to require our third parties to whom Lifestyle Republic provides Personal Information to comply with our privacy policies, Lifestyle Republic cannot guarantee their compliance.
Our additional practices and policies with respect to our collection and usage practices are addressed as follows:
From time to time, Lifestyle Republic Users may answer online surveys through the Lifestyle Republic’s Web site. Our online surveys may ask visitors for contact information (such as their e-mail address). Our surveys are designed to obtain broad demographic information regarding our services and the desires and concerns of our customers and visitors.
From time to time, Lifestyle Republic Users may participate in contests through the Lifestyle Republic’s Web site. Lifestyle Republic runs contests on our site in which Lifestyle Republic may ask visitors for contact information (such as their e-mail address) and demographic information (such as their zip code, age, or income level).
Outside Ad Company
Our Web site may contain chat rooms, forums, message boards, or news groups available to Users. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information, and that you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your Personal Information. Representation information should not be disclosed in public forums.
Our Web site automatically tracks certain information from Users. This information includes the URL that the User came from, what browser the User is using, and the User’s IP address. Many Web sites automatically collect this information. Lifestyle Republic gathers and uses such information to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer our Web site. As stated above, Lifestyle Republic will not voluntarily disclose or sell any information gathered about our users (“Personal Information”) to third parties for solicitation or other reasons unless you consent, and except as otherwise provided above.
Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can change this feature in your browser. The User is always free to decline our cookies if his or her browser permits, although in that case the service may be largely unusable.
If a User sends us personal correspondence, such as e-mails or letters, Lifestyle Republic may collect such information into a file specific to that User. Users should not send privileged or sensitive materials unless specifically directed, or granted permission, by Lifestyle Republic or one of its affiliate attorneys.
Due to the existing regulatory environment, Lifestyle Republic cannot ensure that all of a User’s private communications and other Personal Information will never be disclosed in ways not otherwise described in this Privacy Statement. By way of example (without limiting the foregoing), Lifestyle Republic may be forced to disclose information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Further, Lifestyle Republic can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you to law enforcement or other government officials as Lifestyle Republic, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. Therefore, although Lifestyle Republic uses industry standard practices to protect our Users’ privacy, Lifestyle Republic does not promise that their personally identifiable information or private communications can remain private.
Lifestyle Republic is aware of Internet User’s concerns about the privacy of their information. Our Web site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under our control. User information is stored on servers protected by firewall, system-level, and database-level security.
Only those employees of Lifestyle Republic who require access to data concerning Users are granted access to the data (e.g., marketing product managers, system administrators, customer service representatives, and engineering personnel). Access to User data by employees is further limited by being solely available through a dedicated administrative interface and through use of a restricted user ID and password. In addition, every employee of Lifestyle Republic is required to sign Lifestyle Republic’s standard Nondisclosure and Developments Agreement that requires employees to keep User data confidential. Lifestyle Republic’s internal Web security policies are reviewed and revised on a regular basis.
Personal data that you have voluntarily entered is delivered electronically to servers located in the United States. By using Lifestyle Republic, you consent to the transfer of this data and to Lifestyle Republic’s use of such data as outlined in this policy.
Users consent to the collection and use of their information as described herein. Users will be notified by e-mail in the event of any fundamental changes to the uses of information that are described herein.
