Security and SSL Encryption
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. When we transfer sensitive personal information like the credit card information, we guard it from harm using encryption technology, a method that is used by computers for secure communication. We utilize encryption during the event of an online check out, including the acceptance of your credit card information.
Like most website operators, The Lab Mine collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Lab Mine’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Lab Mine’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Lab Mine may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
The Lab Mine also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on thelabmine.com blog posts. The Lab Mine only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to The Lab Mine’s websites choose to interact with The Lab Mine in ways that require The Lab Mine to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Lab Mine gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at thelabmine.com to provide a username and email address. We receive and may store all personal information that you provide us including, without limitation, through our site.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Lab Mine discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information (information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, first and last name, home, billing or other physical address, an email address, phone number or other contact information) only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Lab Mine’s behalf or to provide services available at The Lab Mine’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Lab Mine’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Lab Mine will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone, unless you have granted us the permission to do so. This may include information that you choose to share, information other users share about you, and third parties may provide. However, The Lab Mine may combine the non-personally identifiable information you provide to The Lab Mine with information that is publicly available, collected through data collection devices and/or information that is received from The Lab Mine’s partners, affiliates or other third parties to improve and customize the The Lab Mine website, its content, layout and services. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Lab Mine discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Lab Mine believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Lab Mine, third parties or the public at large. The Lab Mine also reserves the right to share such aggregate information with third parties for that sole purpose, as well.
If you are a registered user of thelabmine.com and have supplied your email address, The Lab Mine may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Lab Mine and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Lab Mine takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
