WHO WE ARE?
WHAT PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT AND WHY WE COLLECT IT
1. Personal Information
“Personal Information” is unique information that identifies you. Personal Information includes information such as your name, email address, or telephone number. The personally identifiable information may include email addresses, profile pictures or other similar information linked to your Registered Account through the access you granted to us through your Facebook account.
Certain aspects of your Personal Information will be visible on the Site to other Users. Visible information may include your name, your profile picture and your email address. All other Personal Information not described above will remain private and not publicly available on the Site or Services. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing shall prevent you from sharing Personal Information with other Registered Users.
We may also ask you for financial information for payment purposes, including, but not limited to your billing name; billing address; credit, debit, bank card or PayPal account information; or any other information that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate (“Payment Information”). We will not store your Payment Information on our database. Once you provide us with your Payment Information to us, we will forward the information to our third party payment processor, who will only use your Payment Information to process your payment of the ordered products.
You can review and update your private, password protected Personal Information and Payment Information that you provide us in your user account. Please be aware that even after your request for a change to your Personal Information is processed, we may, for a time, retain residual information about you in backup and/or archival copies in our database. Additionally, you can also close your user account through the Site. If you close your Registered Account, we will remove your private, password protected Personal Information from our database. However, please note that in the event you delete your Registered Account, we will retain any aggregated Non-Personal Information on our database.
2. Subscribing and Unsubscribing From Lowiyo Communications
When you create a user account, you have the option of subscribing to our email notices and communications (“Company Communications”). If you did not elect to receive Company Communications when you created a user account, you can subscribe to the Company Communications by emailing the Site administrator at [firstname.lastname@example.org]. You can unsubscribe from Company Communications by emailing the Site administrator at the email address listed above.
Please be aware that even after you unsubscribe, we may retain information about you to make sure you remain unsubscribed until requested to re-subscribe to Company Communications.
3. Sharing and Disclosure of Personal Information
In addition, we disclose information to companies and individuals we employ or contract with to perform functions on our behalf. Examples include, but are not limited to, hosting our web servers, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing payments for the ordered products, and conducting criminal background checks of you. These companies and individuals will only have access to your Personal Information as necessary to perform their functions, but they may not share that information with any other third party.
We reserve the right to transfer or disclose your Personal Information to a successor in interest that acquires rights to that information as a result of (i) the sale of HLM; (ii) a transfer of all or substantially all of our assets; or (iii) a transfer of the Site and/or the Service.
4. Non-Personal Information
“Non-Personal Information” is information that does not specifically identify you or any person as an individual and includes, but is not limited to, such non-unique information obtained from Users of the Service like aggregated data, web-browser type, browsing history, IP address or an Internet Service Provider (“ISP”). Non-Personal Information is used to manage the Site and Service; track usage and improve the Site and/or Service; and is not linked to any Personal Information. Non-Personal Information may be shared with third parties to provide more relevant services and advertisements to Users, and to enhance the Site and Service.
5. Aggregate Data
Non-Personal Information may be collected about your usage of the Site or Services or retrieved from your Registered User account, if any, and aggregated with data from other Users. This aggregated anonymous data will not contain any Personal Information. Aggregate data is collected to build higher quality, more useful services by performing statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behavior of Users of the Site and Services. We may provide statistical information based on this data to advertisers and other current and potential business partners.
6. Log Files

This information can be used to analyze overall trends to help us improve the Services. IP addresses may also be recorded for security and monitoring purposes as well as providing more relevant advertisements. The linkage between your IP address and your Personal Information is not shared with third parties without your permission unless otherwise required by law.

In the event that we learn that information has been collected from a child under age 18 without verification of parental or guardian consent, that information will be deleted as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 18, please contact us.
