Austin Lane, respects the privacy of every individual who visits our websites. This privacy statement provides notice of the standards and terms under which Austin Lane protects the privacy of information supplied by visitors to sites on the World Wide Web that are owned and operated by Austin Lane, including www.austinlane.com and any site built or maintained by Austin Lane. This privacy statement provides notice of our information collection practices and of the ways in which your information may be used. This policy may change from time to time, so please check back periodically to review this information.
What information does Austin Lane collect and how is it used?
A. Personally-Identifiable Information:
Austin Lane typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail. Of course, some of these activities require that you give us information, such as when you make a purchase, use a credit card to pay for services, submit your resume, or request certain types of information. When you provide personally-identifiable information to Austin Lane through one of our websites, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want Austin Lane to use this information for additional purposes. You may also request that Austin Lane not use your information by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, however, Austin Lane reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about your Austin Lane services. Absent any instructions from you, Austin Lane may use information you provide to inform you about additional services and products offered by the Austin Lane family of companies, Austin Lane authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom Austin Lane has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. Austin Lane will not, however, sell or trade your personally-identifiable information unless we are authorized or legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others. On those Austin Lane sites where you may provide Austin Lane with credit card or other ordering information via the web, Austin Lane protects and secures this information by employing commercially customary web-based security and encryption protocols, examples of which include Secure Socket Layer (SSL) and Secure Electronic Transaction (SET). On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Austin Lane will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Austin Lane assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.
B. Non Personally-Identifiable (Generic) Information:
In general, Austin Lane gathers some generic information automatically. Generic information does NOT reveal the identity of the visitor. It usually includes information about the Internet address assigned to your computer, the number and frequency of visitors, and the Austin Lane sites visited. Austin Lane gathers this information for the limited purpose of determining customer service and website needs. We accomplish this by using certain technologies, including "cookies" (a technology that can be used to provide the visitor with tailored information about Austin Lane services). Austin Lane does not combine information collected in this way with any personally-identifiable information. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie and you can refuse it.

For the limited purposes of accomplishing such cooperation and measures and in compliance with applicable laws, Austin Lane may be required to disclose personally identifiable information. In addition, Austin Lane may elect to monitor the areas of communication of any kind (i) to satisfy any law, regulation, or government request; (ii) if such disclosure is necessary or appropriate to operate Austin Lane; or (iii) to protect the rights or property of Austin Lane or others. In connection with the potential sale or transfer of any of its interest in www.Austin Lane, and other sites owned by the company, Austin Lane reserves the right to sell or transfer your information (including , but not limited to name, address information, and other information you provided to Austin Lane) to a third party that (i) concentrates its business in communication products or services; (ii) agrees to be Austin Lane's successor in interest with regard to the maintenance and protection of information collected and maintained by Austin Lane; and (iii) agrees to the obligations of this policy statement.
