Privacy Policy

Your privacy is very important to us. Accordingly, we have developed this Policy in order for you to understand how we collect, use, communicate and disclose and make use of personal information. The following outlines our privacy policy.

1. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Lingo101 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. Lingo101’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Lingo101’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Lingo101 may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Lingo101 also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on Lingo101.com blogs/sites. Lingo101 only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

2. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Lingo101’s websites choose to interact with Lingo101 in ways that require Lingo101 to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Lingo101 gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at Lingo101.com to provide a username and email address. Those who engage in transactions with Lingo101 are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Lingo101 collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Lingo101. Lingo101 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

3. Aggregated Statistics

Lingo101 may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. Lingo101 may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Lingo101 does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

4. Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

Lingo101 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Lingo101’s behalf or to provide services available at Lingo101’s websites, 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 Lingo101’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Lingo101 will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Lingo101 discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Lingo101 believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lingo101, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Lingo101 website and have supplied your email address, Lingo101 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 Lingo101 and our products. If you send us a request (for example via 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. Lingo101 takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

5. Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Lingo101 uses cookies to help Lingo101 identify and track visitors, their usage of Lingo101 website, and their website access preferences. Lingo101 visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using Lingo101’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of Lingo101’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

6. Business Transfers

If Lingo101, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Lingo101 goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Lingo101 may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

7. Ads

Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by Lingo101 and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

8. Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, Lingo101 may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Lingo101’s sole discretion. Lingo101 encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a Lingo101.com account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
