LSL has a program designed to protect PII in its possession or control. This is done through a variety of privacy and security policies, processes, and procedures, including administrative, physical, and technical safeguards that reasonably and appropriately protect the confidentiality, security, and availability of the PII that it creates, receives, maintains, or transmits. While the security of users’ PII is of the utmost importance to LSL, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure; and therefore, LSL cannot guarantee its absolute security.
