Privacy Statement

The Luminis Developer's Networks (LDN) is committed to protecting your privacy and to developing technology that gives you the most powerful and secure online experience. This privacy statement explains data collection and use practices of the LumDev.net site (the "Site"); it does not apply to other online or offline LDN sites, products or services. By accessing the Site, you are consenting to the information collection and use practices described in this privacy statement.

Collecting Your Personal Information

We will collect personal information if you choose to create a new member account. If you choose to do this we will store items such as your name and email address, and (at your choosing) a brief personal description, interests, location, timezone, occupation, birthday, homepage, message board signature and image. Only your name and email is necessary to create a profile, all other information is optional.

When you visit the Site, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically captured. This information includes the name of the Internet service provider and the Internet Protocol (IP) address through which you access the Internet; the date and time you access the Site; the pages that you access while at the Site and the Internet address of the Web site from which you linked directly to our site. None of this information is personally-identifiable. This anonymous information is used to help improve the Site, analyze trends, and administer the Site.

Use of your Personal Information

We use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To register you for LumDev membership.
  • To customize your experience on the Site.
  • Send electronic e-mail newsletters and content notifications, if requested by you.
  • To fill in certain information for you such as your name and signature when posting to message boards.

LDN may disclose personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served to LDN, or the Site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of LDN and our family of Web sites; or (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of LDN, our Web sites, or the public.

Personally identifiable information collected on this site may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which LDN or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.

Email addresses

Email addresses collected as part of the sign-up process are not made publicly available. Email addresses are used to confirm your identity and to communicate with you via email.

Third Party companies wishing to send offers to our members do so through us. They send us the offer and we email it to you on their behalf. In order to comply with anti-spam legislation such as CANSPAM there may be cases where a third-party email data house is used to advise us as to which addresses on our list have specifically opted out of emails from a given advertiser. In order for this to occur we send our list to the data house, the advertiser sends their list to the data house, and the data house then advises us of the results. At no time do we see the third party company's list nor do they see our list. The data house operates under strict privacy guidelines.

Control of your Personal Information

Except as otherwise described in this statement, personal information you provide on this site will not be shared outside of LDN and its controlled subsidiaries and affiliates without your permission. It will only be used for the purposes stated above.

Please be aware that this Privacy Statement and the choices you make on the Site will not necessarily apply to personal information you may have provided to LDN in the context of other, separately operated, LDN products or services.

Access to your Personal Information

You can review and edit your member profile information at the LDN site by logging on to the LDN site with your logon email and password, and then clicking on the 'MyProfile' link.

Security of your Personal Information

LDN strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. Data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration or destruction.

Cookies

We use cookies to store your viewing preferences on the Site and, at your choosing, to store your login information so that once you have logged in you do not need to repeat the login process. We also use a session cookie, meaning it expires soon after you leave the registration process and is not placed on your hard drive, to store your session information during your visit to the Site.

For material changes to this privacy statement, we will notify you either by placing a prominent notice on the home page of our web site or by directly sending you a notification.
