Like most website operators, the LA Fashion District BID 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. The LA Fashion District BID’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how the LA Fashion Distric’s visitors use its website. From time to time, the LA Fashion District BID may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. The LA Fashion District BID also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. THe LA Fashion District BID does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
GATHERING OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to the LA Fashion District's website choose to interact with the LA Fashion District in ways that require the LA Fashion District BID to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the LA Fashion District BID gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, the LA Fashion District BID collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the LA Fashion District BID. The LA Fashion District BID 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.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
The LA Fashion District BID 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 the LA Fashion District BID’s behalf or to provide services available at the LA Fashion District’s website, 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 the LA Fashion District website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The LA Fashion District BID will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone, unless it is part of a business transfer, as described below. Other than to its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations, as described above, the LA Fashion District BID discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when LA Fashion District BID believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the LA Fashion District BID, third parties, or the public at large. If you are a registered user of a LA Fashion District website and have supplied your email address, the LA Fashion District BID 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 the LA Fashion District and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support 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. The LA Fashion District BID takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
