L Marie Consulting believes that privacy is important to the success and use of the Internet. This statement sets forth L Marie Consulting’s Privacy Statement and describes the practices that L Marie Consulting will follow with respect to the privacy of users of this Site.
What is personally identifiable information?
“User identifiable information” is information which can be associated with a specific individual or entity, such as name, address, e-mail address, user ID, credit card number, social security number, and so on.
Recognition of a Customer’s Expectation of Privacy
At L Marie Consulting, we believe the confidentiality and protection of user information is one of our fundamental responsibilities. And while information is critical to providing quality service, we recognize one of our most important assets is our users’ trust. Thus, the safekeeping of user information is a priority for L Marie Consulting.
We do not collect personal information (including your e-mail address) unless we first ask you for it. On some of our sites, we may request that you voluntarily supply us with information, including your e-mail address, street address, telephone number or other information so we may enhance your site visit or follow up with you after your visit. Whether you provide any information is entirely up to you.
If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement. We do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone. However, L Marie Consulting may provide aggregate statistics about visitors to our Sites, such as volume, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information. L Marie Consulting may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the Web site Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d) act to protect the interests of our users or others.
Use, Collection and Retention of Customer Information
L Marie Consulting limits the use, collection and retention of user information to what we believe is necessary or useful to conduct our business, provide quality service, and offer products, services and other opportunities that may be of interest to our customers. L Marie Consulting will collect and use user identifiable information for billing purposes, to provide service to you, to anticipate and resolve problems with your service, or to create and inform you of products and services that better meet your needs.
L Marie Consulting servers automatically gather information about which pages are visited within the L Marie Consulting Web Site. We do not use that information except in the aggregate.
Protection of Information via Established Security Procedures
L Marie Consulting recognizes that a fundamental element of maintaining effective customer privacy procedures is to provide reasonable protection against the unauthorized access to customer information. Therefore, L Marie Consulting has established appropriate security standards and procedures to guard access to customer information.
Disclosure of Privacy Principles to Customers
L Marie Consulting recognizes and respects the privacy expectations of our users. We want our users to understand our commitment to privacy in our use of customer information. As a result of our commitment, we have developed these Privacy Principles which are made readily available to our users.
What are cookies and how are they used?
L Marie Consulting, like many other commercial web sites, may utilize a standard technology called “cookies” to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a web site operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that web sites can send to your browser. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or obtain your e-mail address. If you are simply browsing L Marie Consulting a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has visited the site before.
What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?
If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement. If, in connection with your use of a particular service, we ask to use your data in a way not described in this Privacy Statement and you do not wish to permit that use, you can choose not to use the particular service.
If you have voluntarily provided personally identifiable information, we may, from time to time, send you e-mail regarding products and services. If you do not want to receive such offers and mailings, you can easily opt-out by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do we protect your information?
We exercise great care to protect your personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers.
How can you help protect your information?
If you are using a payrollfocus web site for which you registered, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.
L Marie Consulting may contain links to other sites. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.
These Privacy Principles apply to individuals, and we reserve the right to change these Privacy Principles, and any of the policies or procedures described above, at any time without prior notice. These Privacy Principles are for general guidance and do not constitute a contract or create legal rights and do not modify or amend any agreements we have with our users.
