Opting Out of Behavioral Advertising
LotNetwork may display advertising on the Site and other websites both on our own behalf and via third-party advertising service providers, including targeted behavioral advertising. LotNetwork adheres to the guidelines of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising, and has implemented opt-out procedures in accordance with those organizations’ programs. Some of our advertising service providers may also be members and offer an opt-out of behavioral advertising. You may want to visit http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp, which provides information regarding targeted advertising and the opt-out offered by NAI members. You may also want to visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/, which provides an opt-out by participating companies in the DAA Self-Regulatory Program. If you would like to opt-out of behavioral advertising controlled by us and/or our advertising service providers you may visit the NAI and DAA links provided above. Your opt-out choice is applied only to the browser from which you make the choice. Please note that LotNetwork and other companies may still collect information when you are online and opting out through these mechanisms does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to be served generic ads while online.
For mobile device users, to opt-out of the collection and use of data for interest-based advertising on your mobile device, you can modify the settings on your mobile device. For example:
For Apple Devices: Go to Settings, Select Privacy, Select Advertising, and enable the “Limit Ad Tracking” setting.
For Android Devices: Open the Google Settings App, Select Ads, and enable the “Opt out of interest-based advertising” setting.
The specific opt-out instructions for each device may differ slightly depending on which version of the operating software you are running. Your opt-out choice is applied only to the collection of data from applications on the device from which you opt-out and if you use a different device, a different browser or if you delete browser cookies, you may need to repeat the opt-out steps for that particular device or browser. Should you elect to opt-out, you will still receive ads, but these ads may be less relevant to your interests.
We post customer testimonials on our Web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer's name. We do obtain the customer's consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial. If you want to remove your personal information that is being displayed on our Web site under public pages please send your request to email@example.com.
We may provide your personal information to companies that provide services to help us with our business activities such as processing your order or offering customer service. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide these services to us.
We may also disclose your personal information
as required by law such as to comply with a subpoena, or similar legal process
when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request,
if LotNetwork is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information,
to any other third party with your prior consent to do so.
We do not share your personal information with other companies so that they can market their products or services to you. We may facilitate opportunities for other companies to market to you without sharing such information with them. We make your personal and business contact information and listing information available to be viewed on the Site by other users via listings and profiles so that you may connect with them or to help facilitate a connection.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
Our Web pages and email messages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) that may be used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our site is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.
Social Network or Platform Integration & Links to Other Web Sites
Our Site may contain integration with social networks and other platforms. For example, the Site may contain buttons that direct users to our social networking pages (such as Facebook or Twitter) or enable you to “like” or “share” the Site’s content to other online services. If you choose to “like” or “share” content or to otherwise post information to a third-party Web site or other online service, that information may be publicly displayed and the third-party Web site may have access to information about you and your use of our Site.
Our Site incorporates processes, software or services offered by other companies, and may include links to other Web sites, whose privacy practices may differ from those of LotNetwork and this Site. If you purchase a service, share information, click on social networking buttons or third-party links or otherwise submit personal information on the Site via any of those other sites or platforms then your information is governed by their privacy statements too. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy statement of the Web sites or platforms you visit or that we identify here, as we are not responsible for the privacy or business practices of any third party. As examples, here are links to the privacy terms and policies of the primary third-party companies whose services are used on the Site:

When we collect personal information directly from you, the transmission of your information is encrypted and 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 we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
