We gather certain types of information about the visitors to the Lexington Oaks, and we believe our visitors should fully understand how we obtain and use that information. This Privacy Statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.
If you have questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, you should contact us at [email protected].
Your Personal Information
The submission by you to us of personally identifiable information (e.g., your e-mail address) is required in order for you to receive services, products or information you request from either us or companies with which we do business. (We refer to such personally identifiable information, as well as any other information that you voluntarily provide to us about yourself on the Lexington Oaks that we combine with your personally identifiable information, as your “Personal Information.”) Your Personal Information will be shared between us and those companies, and may also be disclosed to other entities who work with us or those companies to fulfill your request.
While we will not use your Personal Information to send you commercial emails unless you have given us your consent, we may use both your Personal Information and other information we may have about you (such as your IP address) or your use of the Lexington Oaks (such as which pages you have visited) to customize or enhance your experience on the Lexington Oaks, including the display of advertisements. In addition, and as described in greater detail in our Membership Agreement, if you are a member of the Lexington Oaks we may send you certain administrative and service messages in connection with our Community Services; you cannot opt out of receiving those communications.
Access to Your Personally Identifiable Information
If your personally identifiable information changes, or if you would like to delete any of your personally identifiable information, you may correct, update or delete it by either (i) modifying your Membership account, or (ii) sending a request to us through our Contact Us form.
“Cookies” are small data files that many Web sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file contains information such as a user ID that a site may use to track the pages you’ve visited. However, the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. Cookies served by us don’t permit us to read data from your hard drive or to read cookie files created by other Web sites.
First Visits: When you first visited the Lexington Oaks, we served a cookie to you. This cookie resides permanently on your hard drive (unless you chose to delete it) and enables us to track visitor activity across our Web sites.
Membership Registration: When you register as a member of the Lexington Oaks, we use a cookie to store your registration information on your computer if you click the “Remember me” box. We use this cookie to enable you to enter the Lexington Oaksas a member without having to sign in each time.
Advertisements: Our advertising results in the serving of cookies that facilitate the delivery and administration of such advertising.
Advertisers: The current Advertising Terms and Conditions for advertisers on the Lexington Oaks provide that advertisers may write cookies to our visitors’ computers solely for advertising campaign tracking and management purposes, but not for advertisement “retargeting” (i.e., for the purpose of targeting advertisements to visitors to a Lexington Oaks Web site when they subsequently view other (non- Lexington Oaks) Web sites).
Please note that we do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our Web sites.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you have any questions about security on our Website, please use our Contact Us form.
Our Community Services
The Lexington Oaks provide a number of means by which you may communicate with other visitors and with us. Many of these are the various communication and personalization tools and services that are part of our “community” (the “Community Services”). In order to add content to the Lexington Oaks through the Community Services, you must first become a member of the Lexington Oaks and agree to our Membership Agreement. (You do not need to register in order to browse or read the content provided by our members.) The Membership Agreement sets forth a number of information sharing and disclosure practices for our Community Services, and accordingly supplements this Privacy Statement.
We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13 or allow such persons to become members of the Lexington Oaks. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register as a member or send any information about yourself to us. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us through our Contact Us form.
Occasionally we conduct visitor surveys to better target our content to our audience or for the benefit of third parties with whom we do business. Accordingly, sometimes the aggregate survey results are shared with our advertisers and partners. We never share any survey information about specific response with any third party unless that individual consents.
E-mail this Page to a Friend
Many of the pages of the Lexington Oaks include a feature that permits visitors to electronically forward that page to someone else by clicking on a link. The sender must provide his or her e-mail address, as well as that of the recipient. The sender’s information is used only in the case of transmission errors and, of course, to let the recipient know who sent the page. Neither the sender’s information nor the recipient’s information is used for any other purpose.
