LaMont is committed to protecting the privacy of our customers and therefore does not sell or rent our customers’ Personal Information to any third party. Further, we do not share your Personal Information with any third parties for their direct marketing purposes without first providing you the opportunity to opt-in or opt-out of such sharing. The www.lamontlimited.com website (the "Website") is owned, operated and maintained by LaMont Limited (“Lamont”, “us”, “we”)
We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently. If we make material changes to this policy, we will notify you here, by email, or by means of notice on our home page.
2. Types of Information Collected and Uses of Collected Information
We collect two types of information about our Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
a. Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information is information that identifies a specific User. When you engage in certain activities on the Website, such as creating an account, ordering a product or service from us or our partners, submitting content and/or posting content in discussion forums, filling out a survey, posting a review, sending us or our partners feedback, requesting information about our company, submitting an affiliate agreement, applying for a job, posting a video or signing up for special offers from third parties through the Website (collectively, “Identification Activities”), we may ask you to provide certain information about yourself. It is optional for you to engage in an Identification Activity. If you elect to engage in an Identification Activity, however, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your first and last name, mailing address, email address, telephone number and date of birth. When you order merchandise, we may also ask you to provide us with your credit card number, expiration date and authentication codes or related information. Depending on the activity, some of the information we ask you to provide is identified as mandatory and some is identified as voluntary. If you do not provide the mandatory information for a particular activity that requires it, you will not be permitted to engage in that activity.
3. Release of Personally Identifiable Information
We will not share, sell, rent, or trade your Personally Identifiable Information with other parties except as provided below:
a. We may share your information with Third Party Merchants. From time to time, we may provide offers from particular merchants (referred to as “Third Party Merchants”) who, as part of the offer, request information on our customers who responded to the offer. In those cases, we share some of your Personally Identifiable Information with Third Party Merchants. Sharing this Information may allow a Third Party Merchant to market directly to you. However, we will only share Personally Identifiable Information with a Third Party Merchant if you engage in an Identification Activity, and then only to the Third Party Merchant involved in that Identification Activity. We specifically disclaim any responsibility or liability for the actions of such Third Party Merchants.
b. We may share your information with Authorized Third Party Service Providers. These “Third Party Service Providers” perform functions on our behalf, like sending out and distributing our administrative and promotional emails. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with such Third Party Service Providers to perform their services including but not limited to: remove repetitive information on customer lists, analyze data, provide marketing assistance, provide search results and links, process credit card payments, troubleshoot, and provide customer support.
c. We may also collect personal information from individuals and companies with whom we have business relationships (“Affiliates”) and may share information with Third party Service Providers to accomplish our administrative tasks. For example, when you order merchandise, we release your credit card information to the card-issuing bank to confirm payment for the service. Likewise, we may release an Affiliate’s information to our bank to send out a payment. We encourage Third Party Merchants and Third Party Service Providers to adopt and post privacy policies. However, the use of your Personally Identifiable Information by such parties is governed by the privacy policies of such parties and is not subject to our control.
g. We may run a promotion such as a sweepstakes or a contest (a “Promotion”), and you will be given the opportunity to enter by filling out an entry form, or in some cases, you may be automatically entered by using a designated type of credit card when placing an order in store, online or via phone. Your entry information may be shared with Third Party Providers for the limited purposes of administering the sweepstakes and selecting a winner(s) and may be used to notify you in connection with the sweepstakes or contest and to verify your identity. When you enter such a Promotion, you will have the opportunity to consent to receive future communications from us. We do value your privacy, and thus you will always have the opportunity to opt-out of such communications as detailed below. Some Promotions may have co-sponsors, and you may also be asked upon entry to consent to receive future communications from such co-sponsors. If you provide such consent, the information from your entry will be shared with the co-sponsors and the third parties will then have the right to use your information for their own purposes, in accordance with their own policies, and we are not responsible for how co-sponsors may use your information. We will make it clear to you in the entry, order or registration form, whether you are consenting to receive information from any party, and you will be given the opportunity to confirm or withdraw such consent prior to submitting your entry, order or registration.
4. Release of Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may disclose or share Non-Personally Identifiable Information with partners, Affiliates and advertisers. For example, we may share aggregated demographic information (which does not include any Personally Identifiable Information) with “Third Party Advertisers” or “Third Party Advertising Companies” and other parties as provided below:
a. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information to troubleshoot, administer our Website, analyze trends, gather demographic information, comply with applicable law, and cooperate with law enforcement activities. We may also share this information with our authorized Third Party Service Providers and Advertisers to measure the overall effectiveness of our advertising, content, and programming.
b. We may use Third Party Advertising Companies to serve ads when you visit our Website. These companies may use Non-Personally Identifiable Information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide, through the use of network tags, advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you. Some of these Third Party Advertising Companies may be advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”). If you would like more information about any NAI member company, or you would like to opt-out of targeted advertising from any NAI member company, click here: http://www.networkadvertising.org/consumer/opt_out.asp
c. We may also use Third Party Service Providers to track and analyze Non-Personally Identifiable usage and volume statistical information from our Users to administer our Websites and constantly improve its quality and the quality of our merchandise. We may also publish this information for promotional purposes or as a representative audience for advertisers. Please note that this is not Personally Identifiable Information, only general summaries of the activities of our Users. Such data is collected on our behalf, and is owned and used by us.
5. Mobile Device Identifiers
You may be visiting the Website from your mobile device. Certain mobile service providers uniquely identify mobile devices and we or our Third Party Service Providers may receive such information if you access the Website through mobile devices. Some features of the Website may allow for the collection of mobile phone numbers and we may associate that phone number to mobile device identification information. Furthermore, some mobile phone service providers operate systems that pinpoint the physical location of devices that use their service. Depending on the provider, we or our Third Party Service Providers may receive this information
6. Updating and Correcting Information
We believe that you should have the ability to access and edit the Personally Identifiable Information you provide us. You may change any of your Personally Identifiable Information by logging into your account or sending us an email at email@example.com. Please indicate your name, address and email address, and what information you would like to update when you contact us.
We encourage you to promptly update your Personally Identifiable Information if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, because we keep track of past transactions, you cannot delete information associated with past transactions. In addition, it may be impossible for us to completely delete all of your information because we periodically backup information.
If you choose to store credit card information on the Website, this is stored on a secure page and you may delete your credit card information at any time by going to your account profile.
7. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information (“Opt Out”)
Please understand that you can always choose not to provide information, although it may be required to purchase merchandise and thereby preclude you from purchasing any items.
We will only send e-mails for customer service purposes and to those customers who have indicated that they wish to receive other types of e-mail from us and our subsidiaries, including promotions, advertisements and information about our products.
If at any time you wish to stop receiving e-mail from us, you can always remove your name from our mailing list by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating that you wish to unsubscribe and indicating in the subject line of the e-mail "NO E-MAIL". This is commonly referred to as “opt out” or “opting out”. Although we will promptly remove your name from our e-mail list upon receiving your request, it is possible that you may still receive e-mails from us that had been initiated prior to your opting out.
At any time you do not want to receive offers and/or circulars by mail from us, you can always remove yourself from our mailing list by sending an e-mail to email@example.com indicating "NO SNAIL MAIL" in the subject line along with your name and address. Please note that our mailings are prepared in advance of their being sent. Although we will promptly remove your name from our mailing list upon receiving your request, you may still receive mailings from us that had been initiated prior to your name being removed from our list.

8. Security of Information
We take security seriously and have adopted numerous precautions to protect the security of Personally Identifiable Information. You can only access your Personally Identifiable Information through a password and your login information. This password is encrypted. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone. In addition, your Personally Identifiable Information resides on a secure server that only selected personnel and contractors have access to. We encrypt certain sensitive information (such as credit card information) using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology to ensure that your Personally Identifiable Information is safe as it is transmitted to us.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect data and seek to partner with companies which do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of any transmitted information, and we are not responsible for the actions of any third parties that may receive any such information.
9. Data Tracking
b. Other Tracking Devices. We may use other industry standard technologies like pixel tags and web beacons to track your use of our Website pages and promotions, or we may allow our Third Party Service Providers to use these devices on our behalf. Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on certain pages on our Website, or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, pixel tags and web beacons generate a Non-Personally Identifiable notice of that action. Pixel tags allow us to measure and improve our understanding of visitor traffic and behavior on our Website, as well as give us a way to measure our promotions and performance. We may also utilize pixel tags and web beacons provided by our Affiliates and/or Marketing Partners for the same purposes.
