2. COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Your use of the Services results in the following information collected by LPL:
A) Registration Information.
- Name, email address, and zip code.
B) Use Analytics
The Services may automatically collect certain types of technical information, such as: browser or device type, language preference, referring site, operating system, date and time of visit, and average duration of session. LPL uses technical information to better understand how users use the Services so that LPL can maintain and improve the Services.
C) Location Information & IP Addresses
Internet Protocol addresses indicate the location of your computer or mobile device on a network connected to the Internet. Accessing the Services may result in the logging of IP addresses for systems administration, troubleshooting, and to prevent prohibited access. While this may be used to infer an approximation of your location when using the Services, LPL does not log IP addresses to track your location. LPL may link IP addresses to other information in order to monitor account sharing and prevent prohibited activity.
3. USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
LPL may use the information collected or shared with LPL for several purposes, including but not limited to, to: provide the Services, improve the Services, communicate with you, perform analytics about use of the Services, ensure legal and contractual compliance, and carry out any other lawful purpose as may be disclosed to you at any time. LPL may share the information collected with third party service providers for the limited purpose of providing the Services.
4. ANONYMIZED DATA
In addition to the other uses described in this Policy, LPL may de-identify, anonymize, and aggregate data so that it is no longer personally identifiable data. LPL may use this data to improve the Services or, without limitation, to develop, analyze, or combine the anonymized data for commercial purposes. LPL use this information to better understand how LPL’s visitors use the Services, and to maintain and improve the Services.
6. PROTECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
LPL takes commercially reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, sharing, alteration, or destruction of personal information. LPL discloses personal information only on an as needed (or required) basis as follows:
- To LPL’s employees, contractors, or service providers that: (1) need to know in order to provide the Services; and (2) that have expressly agreed not to disclose it to others outside of the the purpose for which it was shared with them. As required by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process. To the extent LPL is legally permitted to do so, LPL will take commercially reasonable steps to notify you in the event that LPL is required to provide your personal information as part of a legal process or proceeding.
- When LPL believes in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect LPL’s rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a written government request.
- To any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
7. FEEDBACK & SUPPORT
If you send LPL a support request, LPL reserves the right to publish questions and answers, or other information (after it has been anonymized and de-identified) in order to help LPL clarify or respond to your request or to help LPL support other users (for example, a FAQ or support page).
To prevent unauthorized access, safeguard data accuracy, and maintain the appropriate use of information, LPL has put in place appropriate procedures to protect personal information that LPL stores. LPL makes every effort to ensure the integrity and security of LPL’s network and systems. However, since the Internet is not 100% secure and as new technology evolves and emerges, LPL cannot guarantee that LPL’s security measures will prevent third-party interferences from illegally obtaining or tampering with your personal information. LPL encourages you to help LPL by also taking precautions to protect your personal information when you use the Services and to notify LPL immediately if you believe there has been a security breach.

LPL does not promote or offer the Services for use by anyone under the age of 13 (“minors”), knowingly solicit or collect personal information from minors, and will not knowingly link to any third-party website or platform that solicits or collects personal information from minors. If you believe that a minor has disclosed personal information to LPL or that LPL has linked to such a third-party or user website or platform, please contact us immediately.
10. CALIFORNIA CONSUMER PRIVACY RIGHTS

Under CCPA, personal information generally means information that can identify, relate to, describe, be associated with, or be reasonably capable of being associated with a particular consumer, household, or device.
