3. Who We Share Your Information With

We share your information with various third parties in a variety of circumstances.

With Your Consent

We may share your information with third parties you have given us permission to share it with. Our services may also let you share information with others, with your consent. For example, if you consent to connect your L4G account with your SurveyMonkey account, SurveyMonkey will be sent some information about you to establish and operate that connection.

With Service Providers

L4G uses a variety of service providers who help us to provide our services. These service providers are contractually required to use your information only as is needed for that purpose, and to protect the security of your information. For example, we engage service providers to:

  • send emails to our users and conduct email marketing campaigns
  • track and analyze activity on our website and usage of our services to understand how our users interact with our website and services
  • help provide customer support and service to you
  • perform product development, maintenance, and troubleshooting
  • develop benchmarks for our services
  • publish advertisements on our behalf or conduct marketing campaigns

To Comply With the Law and Protect Our Rights

L4G may disclose your information to courts, law enforcement, governmental authorities, or authorized third parties to the extent we are required or permitted to do so by law, including to comply with legal processes such as subpoenas and search warrants. We may also disclose your information to those third parties to respond to claims asserted against L4G, to enforce and administer our agreements with clients, or to protect the rights of L4G. If we receive legal requests that relate to your information, we will endeavor to notify you, unless that is prohibited by law.

As Part of a Corporate Transaction

If ownership or control of all or a part of our services or their assets changes (such as via a merger, acquisition, reorganization, sale of assets, or bankruptcy), we may transfer your information to the new owner as a result of the transaction, and in preparation for such transaction (e.g. for due diligence). We will notify you in advance if your information becomes subject to a different privacy policy as a result of such a transaction.

Aggregated and Anonymized Data

We may share anonymized data and aggregated data for marketing and advertising purposes, research and analysis, regulatory compliance, and other business purposes.

4. Your Rights Regarding Your Information

Correcting Your Personal Information

Some of your personal information can be accessed and updated through your L4G account. If you wish to have any other personal information we have relating to you updated, you can contact us using the contact details at the bottom of this policy.

Data Retention

We generally retain your personal information for as long as you have an account with us. To delete an account, please contact us. Note that we may maintain backups of your information, even if you have left an organization, and, due to technical reasons, residual copies of backup data may remain for limited periods of time even after your account is deleted.

Marketing Emails

If you receive any marketing or promotional emails from us (such as newsletters), you can opt-out or unsubscribe from those emails by following the instructions to do so included in those emails.

Do Not Track Signals

L4G currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals in the HTTP headers from your browser or mobile application due to a lack of standardization regarding how those signals should be interpreted.

5. How Changes May Be Made to This Policy

We may change this privacy policy from time to time and post those changes to this online page. If we change this policy in a way that materially impacts the way your information is managed or processed by us, we provide you with reasonable advance notification of the change by email, sent to the address associated with your L4G account or any other email address you have provided to us for contact purposes.
