Except where otherwise specified in the Limitations section of this policy:
The remainder of this policy specifies the terms of this policy more precisely.
Multimedia. Multimedia, within this policy, is (and only is) images, movies, sound files, or other files (except web pages) that a browser can render or delegate rendering of to another program.
Policy Item. A Policy Item, within this policy, is (and only is) software, Multimedia, a web page, or an E-Mail address that is subject to this policy in its current form. See the section Scope to determine which items are subject to this policy.
Access. To Access, within this policy, is (and only is) to download, view, submit a form from, execute, send information to, or otherwise use.
User. A User, within this policy, is (and only is) any person who is Accessing a Policy Item, or has Accessed a Policy Item.
Access Time. Access Time, within this policy, is (and only is) the exact time at which a User has Accessed a Policy Item.
User Information. User Information, within this policy, is (and only is) any information, private or otherwise, about a User that Lumental receives only as a consequence of the User's Accessing of a Policy Item. Access Times are also considered to be User Information.
Collect. To Collect, within this policy, is (and only is) to retain, use, transfer or publish.
Referring URL. A Referring URL, within this policy, is (and only is) User Information that is sent by a User's browser that identifies the URL of the web page containing the link that the User has used to Access the Policy Item, or sometimes simply the URL of the web page that was most recently viewed by the User's browser before the Policy Item was Accessed.
Browser ID. A Browser ID, within this policy, is (and only is) User Information that is the name and version of the browser that is used by the User to Access a Policy Item (as is typically sent by the browser).
Traffic Information. Traffic Information, within this policy, is (and only is) User Information including (and only including) the IP addresses of Users, Referring URLs, Browser IDs, and Access Times.
Embedded Object. An Embedded Object, within this policy, is (and only is) an object that is included within a web page such that it is usually automatically Accessed by a browser that is Accessing the web page. (Examples include images, sound files, movies, applets, or scripts that can appear to be part of the web page.)
This policy is subject to the laws of the jurisdiction of Lumental, and to the laws of the jurisdiction of the User.
Notwithstanding any indication to the contrary contained within the Terms of this policy:
Lumental shall not Collect any User Information, except for:
If Lumental Collects any User Information, such information shall not be published or transferred to any third parties.
Lumental may use an IP address that is User Information to identify the Internet Service Provider of the User. This information may be used to approximate the country, state, province, or city in which the User resides.
Lumental may use Referring URLs to gain information about the sources of traffic coming into the lumental.com web site. The host of the Referring URL is considered a third party, and so no User Information about the User shall be transferred to said host.
Lumental may use Browser IDs to gain information about the relative popularity of the various browsers that are Accessing the Policy Items.
Lumental may use Access Times to measure the trends in traffic amounts with respect to time.
Traffic Information, as defined above, shall be used for statistical purposes only. Traffic Information shall not be used to identify or send information to the User, nor to yield any information about the User that can be used, directly or indirectly, to identify or send information to the User. Statistics formed using Traffic Information may be published or transferred to third parties, provided that such statistics do not contain any User Information, such as the IP address of any User or any Access Times.
The version of a browser that is identified by a Browser ID is not considered within this policy to be User Information when it is no longer associated with the IP address of the User, the Access Time, or any other information that can identify the User who sent the Browser ID, because the information is no longer about the User. Therefore, such information may be transferred or published, for example in the aforementioned statistics.
The URL identified by a Referring URL, or a truncated version thereof, is not considered within this policy to be about a User, and is therefore not considered to be User Information, if and only if all of the following are true:
Lumental may retain any E-Mail address that is User Information, and may send E-Mails to the E-Mail address while it is retained.
A User may request, by an E-Mail or written notification sent to Lumental, that Lumental deletes its record of the User's E-Mail address, provided that the User's E-Mail address is User Information (ie. Lumental has not acquired the E-Mail address by any other means). In this case, Lumental shall comply with the request within 24 hours of when the request is received, and it shall thereby no longer retain or use the E-Mail address until any time in the future when Lumental again receives the E-Mail address.
This policy applies exclusively to all of the following:
This policy does not apply to third-party web pages that are directly linked to by a web page that is subject to this policy.
Although a Policy Item may cease to exist or may no longer be a Policy Item (due to a change in or removal of this policy), User Information that was acquired by the Accessing of the item while it was still a Policy Item will continue to exist as User Information and will continue to be subject to this policy in its current form. The statements in this policy shall be considered valid at all times in the future.
