Lenos Software may also receive information about Customers and Attendees from other sources, including third parties from whom we have purchased data, and combine this information with Data we already have about you. This helps us to update, expand and analyze our records, identify new customers, and create more tailored advertising to provide products and services that may be of interest to you.

4. Web Site Navigational Information
Cookies, Web Beacons and IP Addresses
Lenos Software uses commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies to collect information as you navigate the Company’s Web sites (“Web Site Navigational Information”). As described more fully below, we and our partners use these cookies or similar technologies to analyze trends, administer Web sites and Services, track users’ movements around our Web sites and Services. This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information used on the Company’s Web sites and Services, and how this information may be used.
The following sets out how Lenos Software.com uses different categories of cookies and your options for managing cookies’ settings:
Type of Cookies
Required cookies enable you to navigate the Company’s Web sites and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the Web sites and using Lenos Software Services.
If you have chosen to identify yourself to Lenos Software, the Company may place on your browser cookies containing an encrypted, unique identifier. These cookies allow the Company to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the Web sites and Services and to process your online transactions and requests.
Because required cookies are essential to operate the Company’s Web sites and the Services, there is no option to opt out of these cookies.
Log Files, IP Addresses, URLs and Other Data
As is true of most Web sites, we gather certain information automatically to analyze trends in the aggregate and administer our Web sites and Services. This information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address (or the proxy server you use to access the World Wide Web), device and application identification numbers, your location, your browser type, your Internet service provider and/or mobile carrier, the pages and files you viewed, your searches, your operating system and system configuration information, and date/time stamps associated with your usage. Due to Internet communications standards, when you visit or use the Company’s Websites and Services, we automatically receive the URL of the website from which you came and the website to which you go when you leave our Website. This information is used to analyze overall trends, to help us improve our Websites and Services, to track and aggregate non-personal information, and to provide the Websites and Services. For example, Lenos Software uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Visitors navigate the Company’s Web sites. Lenos Software also collects IP addresses from Customers when they log into the Services as part of the Company’s “Identity Confirmation” and “IP Range Restrictions” security features.
Social Media Features and Single Sign-on
Do Not Track
Currently, various browsers — including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari — offer a “do not track” or “DNT” option that relies on a technology known as a DNT header, which sends a signal to Web sites’ visited by the user about the user's browser DNT preference setting. Lenos Software does not currently commit to responding to browsers' DNT signals with respect to the Company's Web sites, in part, because no common industry standard for DNT has been adopted by industry groups, technology companies or regulators, including no consistent standard of interpreting user intent. Lenos Software takes privacy and meaningful choice seriously and will make efforts to continue to monitor developments around DNT browser technology and the implementation of a standard.
5. Public forums, refer a contact, and customer testimonials
Lenos Software may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Company’s Web sites. Any personal information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Lenos Software is not responsible for the personal information you choose to submit in these forums.
Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company’s referral program to inform contacts about the Company’s Web sites and Services. When using the referral program, the Company requests the contact’s name and email address. Lenos Software will automatically send the contact a one–time email inviting him or her to visit the Company’s Web sites. Lenos Software does not store this information.
6. Sharing of information collected
Lenos Software may share Data about Lenos Software Visitors, Customers and Attendees with the Company’s contracted service providers so that these service providers can provide services on our behalf. These service providers are authorized to use your personal information only as necessary to provide the requested services to us. Without limiting the foregoing, Lenos Software may also share Data about Lenos Software Visitors, Customers and Attendees with the Company’s service providers to ensure the quality of information provided. Unless described in this Privacy Statement, Lenos Software does not share, sell, rent, or trade any information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
From time to time, Lenos Software may partner with other companies to jointly offer products or services. If you purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly–offered product or service from or through Lenos Software, the Company may share Data about Lenos Software Customers collected in connection with your purchase or expression of interest with our partner(s). Lenos Software does not control our business partners’ use of the Data about Lenos Software Customers that we collect, and their use of the information will be in accordance with their own privacy policies. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may opt not to purchase or specifically express interest in a jointly offered product or service.
Lenos Software does not share Data about Lenos Software Attendees with business partners unless you specifically opt in to such sharing via an event registration form. If you do not wish for your information to be shared in this manner, you may choose not to opt in via event registration forms. If you choose to share your information with business partners in the manner described above, your information will be subject to the business partners’ respective privacy statements.
Lenos Software uses a third-party service provider to manage credit card processing. This service provider is not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on the Company’s behalf.
Lenos Software reserves the right to use or disclose information provided if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that use or disclosure is necessary to protect the Company’s rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
7. International transfer of information collected
The Company primarily stores Data about Lenos Software Customers and Data about Lenos Software Attendees in the United States. To facilitate Lenos Software’s global operations, the Company may transfer and access such information from around the world, including from other countries in which the Company has operations.

10. Customer Data
LLenos Software’s Customers may electronically submit data or information to the Services for hosting and processing purposes (“Customer Data”). Lenos Software will not review, share, distribute, or reference any such Customer Data except as provided in Lenos Software’s Master Subscription Agreement, or as may be required by law. In accordance with Lenos Software’s Master Subscription Agreement, Lenos Software may access Customer Data only for the purpose of providing the Services or preventing or addressing service or technical problems or as may be required by law.
Lenos Software acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. If personal information pertaining to you as an individual has been submitted to us by a Lenos Software customer and you wish to exercise any rights you may have to access, correct, amend, or delete such data, please inquire with our customer directly. Because Lenos Software personnel have limited ability to access data our customers submit to our Services, if you wish to make your request directly to Lenos Software, please provide the name of the Lenos Software customer who submitted your data to our Services. We will refer your request to that customer, and will support them as needed in responding to your request within a reasonable timeframe.
Lenos Software uses robust security measures to protect Data about Lenos Software Customers and Data about Lenos Software Attendees.
