CALIFORNIA RIGHTS

LDB employees and participants who are residents of the State of California have certain rights under California laws.

Under California law, website and online service operators are required to disclose how they respond to web browser “do not track” signals. LDB does not currently take actions to respond to “Do Not Track” signals as a uniform standard for such response has not yet been established.

California law requires website and online service operators to disclose whether third parties may collect Personal Information about their users’ online activities over time and across different sites when the users use the operator’s website or service. Third parties that have content or services on our Site such as a social feature, analytics service, or an advertising network partner, may obtain information about your browsing or usage habits but this information does not include personal information. We do not knowingly permit such third parties to collect any Personal Information from our Site unless you directly provide it to us and we provide it to them with your consent.

If you are a minor under 18 and have an Account, you may ask us to remove any user content that you posted on the site by writing to us and providing as much detail as possible (i.e. date and caption) as to the post(s) you want removed. We will begin to process your request within 30 days. Please note that processing your request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of user content that you posted.

CHILDREN

The Site is not directed to children under 16. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose Personal Information from anyone under 16 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 16, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.

RETENTION AND SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION

We may retain your Personal Information only for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected as described in this Policy. We also retain your Personal Information in order to protect our rights and the rights of others; to resolve disputes; and to enforce our legal terms or policies to the extent permitted under the applicable laws.

We take the security of your Personal Information very seriously and we maintain a risk-based approach to physical, administrative, and technical security measures to protect the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your Personal Information. We regularly monitor our systems for possible vulnerabilities and attacks.
