Our store maintains a strong commitment to your privacy. LensCircle considers the responsible use of personal information to be a critical element in enabling the Internet to reach its potential as a serious tool for personal and professional activities. As the Internet changes our lives in a number of ways, LensCircle is committed to respecting your privacy.
In general, you can visit LensCircle without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.
There are times, however, when we may need information from you, such as your name, home or business address and e-mail address. LensCircle will seek to let you know before we collect any personal information from you over the Internet. Some examples of when we may need information are if you choose to purchase a product directly from the www.lenscircle.com website, subscribe to the Info Messenger notification service, or when you register. When you choose to give us personal information over the Internet that we may request, LensCircle will endeavor to let you know how we will use this information. LensCircle will also seek to take appropriate steps to protect the information you share with us, including using appropriate technology for credit card data used in electronic commerce transactions.
In general on LensCircle, IP addresses (the Internet address of a computer) are logged to track a user's session while the user remains anonymous. We analyze this data for certain trends and statistics, such as which parts of our site users are visiting and how long they spend there. In general, we do not link your IP addresses to anything personally identifiable to you, except in the cases of certain personalized subscription services (such as Active Answers), which utilize session data to improve the service. In those limited cases where session information is not anonymous, LensCircle will provide notice of the practice and an opportunity to "opt out."
In areas of the LensCircle Web site which may be of particular interest to children, we will use our best efforts not to collect personal information from those identifying themselves as age 17 or under. LensCircle encourages parents to take an active role in their children's use of the Internet and to spend time online with their children. Children may ask their parents to submit a request for information on their behalf.
If you have any questions or comments about our privacy practices, would like to stop receiving information from LensCircle, or would like to correct or update information provided to LensCircle via its Web site, please contact us by sending an e-mail.
