Lindal Cedar Homes Privacy Policy

At the Lindal.com family of web sites, user privacy is of utmost concern. We are committed to your privacy and security, and to providing you the best possible user experience. The Lindal.com family of sites, including our networked independent dealer sites, is committed to your privacy and security. Except as described elsewhere within this privacy policy, we will never disclose your personally identifiable information through the web site to any third party without your consent. Here's how we collect and use information from you in our efforts to provide the highest quality user experience:

IP Address - Your IP or "Internet Protocol" address and other site usage data is used to gather broad demographic information. This data helps us serve you by allowing us to understand how visitors use our web sites.

Cookie - Our sites use a technology called "cookies," small files stored by your browser to help keep track of your user profile. Our cookies do not collect personally identifiable information, nor do we share them with anyone. We use cookies to remember your personal profile for your convenience, and to help deliver content specific to your needs. We also use cookies to track user trends and improve areas of our sites that our users find valuable.

Registration - Our site includes registration forms that require users to give us contact information (such as your name), unique identifiers (such as your email address), and demographic information (such as your Zip code or home style preferences).

We use customer contact information from registration forms to send you information related to our products and services if you consent to receiving such mailings. Your contact information may also be used to contact you when necessary for administrative purposes related to your account. We use your email as a unique identifier in our record system, to verify communications from you, and to send you newsletters and promotional offerings that you ask to receive or to tell you about changes to the Lindal.com family of web sites.

Demographic information and site usage data is also collected on our sites. We use this data to tailor your experience, allowing us to provide content related to your preferences and information on products or services we think you may be interested in.

Email Services - If you take advantage of any email notification features on our sites, you will receive email updates as described in the service. The Lindal.com family of sites provides users the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from us and our associates. Users can remove their personal information from the database of our site by sending a request by email to the contact for our site listed below and by typing "unsubscribe" in a response to any email received from Lindal.com.

Personal Tools - Certain tools on our site, such as Your Lindal Folder, allow you to store your personal information for future use. We do not share this information with third parties.

Order Forms - Our sites use forms for you to request information, products and services. We only collect financial information to bill you for the products and services you indicate. We collect contact information, unique identifiers and demographic information for the purposes described in "Registration" above. See "Disclosure" for more information on when we provide your information to third party business associates.

Contests and Surveys - Online, we may also survey visitors for contact information, unique identifiers and demographic information. You are never required to answer these questions. The information you submit may be used for analyzing overall site demographics, user preferences and tastes and similar "getting to know our customers" purposes. We may disclose this data to third parties in an aggregated form (such as summary reports for our advertisers) but never with user data or identification assigned to the information provided. When you enter a contest, we will require that you submit a limited amount of personally identifiable data such as contact information. We may also ask you questions related to your preferences and age or background. We will designate which questions are required to be answered in order to enter the contest. The information you submit may be used to analyze site demographics and user preferences, and for similar "getting to know our customer" purposes. We may share this data with third parties in aggregate form only (as in summary reports to advertisers), and never in the form of personally identifiable information.

Your Security - Lindal.com has taken the following important measures to protect against loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. First, we store no financial information or social security information on our sites. When we do transmit your data, we use only Secure Servers using current encryption technology to encode your data safely. The personal data we do store on our system is protected by firewall and password. Our network firewall is a combination of hardware and software designed to keep unauthorized users from accessing our network. The password you select, along with your unique email address, prevents others from accessing your information. We suggest that you do not disclose your password to anyone.

Outside Links - While on a Lindal.com family web site, you may be led to other web sites. Be aware that other sites may collect data and personal information and operate according to their own privacy practices. Please remember that, once outside of our family of sites, any information you submit is outside of our control.

Disclosure - To provide you the best service and experience, we may team with business associates. When you indicate that you want to receive a product or service, or contact a person or organization, we share the data needed for you to receive what you have indicated. Occasionally, we hire consultants that may need access to our member database to perform their services for us. We take great care to require that these business associates agree by contract not to use any member information that they may receive access to.

Lindal.com may contract with outside companies to administer our mailing lists or provide retail services. Your personal information may be shared with an outside company for the sole purpose of administering the products, services and programs you have selected.

Choice/Opt-out - The Lindal.com family of web sites provides you the opportunity to opt out of receiving communications from our associates, independent dealers and us. To remove your personal information from one of our websites, email a request to the site at the address listed in "Contact Lindal." To remove your name from an email service, simply reply to the email and type "Unsubscribe" in the subject line.

Correct or Update - You can change or update your personal information for a particular tool by going to the "Edit Profile" section of the site in Your Lindal Folder and following instructions to update your information.
