Privacy Policy

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

Labortopia is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Statement sets forth our current privacy practices with regard to the information we collect when you or your computer interact with our website. By accessing any of the Labortopia websites including Labortopia.com and Labortopia.net, you acknowledge and fully understand Labortopia 's Privacy Statement and freely consent to the information collection and use practices described in this Website Privacy Statement.

PARTICIPATING MERCHANT POLICIES

Related services and offerings with links from this website, including vendor sites, have their own privacy statements that can be viewed by clicking on the corresponding links within each respective website. Online merchants and others who participate in Labortopia services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage that you always review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND HOW WE USE IT

Labortopia collects certain information from and about its users three ways: directly from our Web Server logs, the user, and with Cookies.

1. Web Server Logs

When you visit our Website, we may track information to administer the site and analyze its usage. Examples of information we may track include:

2. Use of Cookies

Labortopia may use cookies to personalize or enhance your user experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalized functionality.

Labortopia reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into Labortopia.com a site that relies on third-party cookies).

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies. If you reject cookies by changing your browser settings then be aware that this may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

3. Personal Information of Users

Visitors to our website can register to purchase services. When you register, we will request some personal information such as name, address, email, telephone number or facsimile number, account number and other relevant information. If you are purchasing a service, we will request financial information. Any financial information we collect is used only to bill you for the services you purchased. If you purchase by credit card, this information may be forwarded to your credit card provider. For other types of registrations, we will ask for the relevant information. You may also be asked to disclose personal information to us so that we can provide assistance and information to you. For example, such data may be warranted in order to provide online technical support and troubleshooting.

You should be aware that when you voluntarily disclose personally identifiable information (e.g., user name, e-mail address) via your profile, messages, forums, postings, or in other areas of the Labortopia site, that information, along with any substantive information disclosed in your communication, can be collected, aggregated, sold, correlated and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages from other users of our site or third parties. Such activities are beyond the control of Labortopia. Please do not post any personal information on the Labortopia site or in other areas that you expect to keep private. As a Labortopia member or consumer user, you can modify your personal information at any time by accessing your account or profile section of the site. Also, upon your request, Labortopia will use commercially reasonable efforts to functionally remove you and your personal information from the site; however, it may be impossible to remove your entry without some residual information being retained by Labortopia. Registered users who wish to close their account should contact support@ Labortopia.com.

Information submitted with your membership profile such as your full name, profile photo and any personally identifiable information you have included in your profile may also be published on our site and viewable to the public and/or consumers.

Your full name and email address may also be used when you send an email notification to other users of Labortopia's services including members (such as in an invitation, or when sharing a review). We may also use your email address to send you updates or news regarding our site, but you may choose not to receive email of this type by accessing the "Account" tab of the web site and updating your notification settings. Additionally, we use your email address to contact you on behalf of other members or consumers (such as when someone sends you a personal message).

Browser-type related information, IP address, requested URL, referring URL, and timestamp data help us diagnose problems with our server, administer Labortopia, and otherwise provide the highest possible level of service to you. In addition, we use this information to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site and to inform advertisers of such information as well as the number of users that have been exposed to,or clicked on, their advertising banners.

We will not disclose personally identifiable information we collect from you to third parties without your permission except to the extent necessary including:

We will disclose information about individual users to governmental or judicial authorities or law enforcement agencies, or to other individuals or entities in response to subpoenas, court orders, or other legal processes. Further, Labortopia may share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities or suspected fraud, or to enforce or apply the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to transfer your personal information in the event of a transfer of ownership of Labortopia, such as an acquisition by or merger with another company. In such an event, Labortopia will notify you before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy. Labortopia will notify you when information about you may be provided to third parties in ways other than explained above, and you will have the option to prevent such information sharing.

4. Call and Email Logs

Visitors to our website may click to call or email workers. We maintain records such as the number of the caller, email of the sender, the time of day a call or email was made, duration of a call, etc for billing purposes and the safety of our community.

USE OF WEB BEACONS OR GIF FILES

Labortopia.com and Labortopia.net pages may contain electronic images known as Web beacons - sometimes also called single-pixel gifs - that allow Labortopia to count users who have visited those pages and to deliver co-branded services. Labortopia may include Web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters in order to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon.

Some of these Web beacons may be placed by third party service providers to help determine the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or email communications. These Web beacons may be used by these service providers to place a persistent cookie on your computer. This allows the service provider to recognize your computer each time you visit certain pages or emails and compile anonymous information in relation to those page views, which in turn enables us and our service providers to learn which advertisements and emails bring you to our website and how you use the site. Labortopia prohibits Web beacons from being used to collect or access your personal information.

ACCESSING WEB ACCOUNT INFORMATION

We will provide you with the means to ensure that personally identifiable information in your web account file is correct and current. You may review this information in the Account pages at Labortopia.net or by contacting us via email to our support personnel support@ Labortopia.com.

SECURITY

Your Labortopia account and membership profile are password-protected. Labortopia exercises commercially reasonable methods of protecting our your information. These methods are intended to protect your information that is stored within our database. We limit the access to your information to those employees who need access to perform their job function such as our customer service personnel. If you have any questions about the security at our website, please contact us. Although we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Privacy Policy.

You hereby acknowledge that Labortopia is not responsible for any intercepted information sent via the Internet, and you hereby release us from any and all claims arising out of or related to the use of intercepted information in any unauthorized manner.

CHANGES TO THIS STATEMENT

Labortopia has the discretion to occasionally update this privacy statement. When we do, we will also revise the "updated" date at the top of this Privacy page. We encourage you to periodically review this privacy statement to stay informed about how we are helping to protect the personal information we collect.
