Your privacy is critically important to us. It is Lucania’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
- What personal information do we collect?
Lucania Partners, Inc. (“Lucania”) operates a website at ______________. You may use our site without disclosing personally identifiable information. We do not ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. We want to be clear that we will not obtain such information about you unless you choose to submit to us.
Certain visitors to our websites choose to interact with Lucania in ways that require Lucania to gather personal information. The amount and type of information that Lucania gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who wish to post their story, encourage others in our community, or donate to help to provide a username, email address and other information.
Lucania collects anonymous information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the website. From time to time, Lucania may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Lucania also collects information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and commenters to profiles published on the website. Lucania only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personal information as described in this Policy.
Lucania may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Lucania may monitor the most popular pages and content on the site or use spam screened by a third party to help identify spammers. Lucania may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Lucania does not disclose personal information other than as described in this Policy.
2. How do we use your personal information?
Those who engage in transactions with Lucania – by sharing their profile or donating, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal information required to process those transactions. In each case, Lucania collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Lucania.
Lucania does not collect banking or other financial information and does not disclose personal information other than as described herein.
Visitors can always refuse to supply personal information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Lucania takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information

When you post a profile or reply to any of our communications with a request, we may need to collect additional personal information.

Additional questions may be included to help us improve the services we offer.
If Lucania, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Lucania goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Lucania may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
4. What circumstances may require additional information or consent from you?
A separate privacy statement and consent govern Lucania’s receipt and publishing of Featured Profiles, which may include sensitive information in addition to personal information. If you wish to provide a Featured Profile and would like to view this Notice and Consent, please contact us at email@example.com.
5. When do we share personal data?
We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our services, or protect our rights. Only designated personnel within Lucania will have access on a need to know basis to the information you provide.
Lucania may occasionally provide statistics to third parties related to the number of visitors who use the site. These statistics do not provide personally identifiable information.
Lucania discloses personal only to those of its employees, contractors, campaign sponsors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Lucania’s behalf or to provide services available at Lucania’s websites, and (ii) have agreed not to disclose it to others.
Some of these third party recipients may be located outside of your home country. By using Lucania’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to these third parties.
Lucania will not rent or sell your personal information to anyone.
Other than as described above, Lucania discloses personal information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Lucania believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lucania, third parties or the public at large.
6. Where do we store and process personal data?
We do not store your personal information on our servers unless required to do so for the on-going operation of one or more of our services or as otherwise consented to by you.
7. How do we secure your personal data?
Lucania has taken reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of personally identifiable information that you may provide. You should understand, however, that electronic transmissions via the Internet are not necessarily secure from interception and so we cannot guarantee the security or confidentiality of such transmissions.
We use all reasonable efforts to prevent unauthorized access by a secure firewall and use a security infrastructure that protects the integrity and privacy of such personal information. As an additional security measure, your personal information is also encrypted during transmission by Secure Socket Layer 128-bit encryption software. Encryption is a common method used to transmit sensitive data across the Internet. Encryption temporarily makes the text unreadable during the time it is being transmitted over the Internet.
8. How long do we keep your personal data for?
Lucania keeps your personal information only for the length of time reasonably necessary to provide the services requested by you through the site or as otherwise permitted by your consent or by operation of law.
Lucania collects and saves the default information customarily logged by Internet server software. These logs may be kept for an indefinite amount of time, used at any time and in any way necessary to prevent security breaches and to ensure the integrity of the data on our servers.
Comments and other content submitted via the anti-spam service are saved on our servers unless they were marked as spam positive, in which case we store them long enough to use them to improve the service to avoid future false positives.
9. Your rights in relation to personal data
You have the right at any time to request access to or deletion of your personal information collected by Lucania, and to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal information as described in this Policy.
If you have questions about this Policy, your rights, or about deleting or correcting your personal data please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our site is intended only for users who are 13 years of age and older. Lucania will not knowingly collect or use any personal information from children that we know to be under the age of 13. If we become aware of personal information that was collected from a child under 13, we will delete such information.
If you are a California resident, California law permits you to request certain information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by us and our related companies to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send your request by e-mail to email@example.com.
When our website is used outside of the United States, the user understands and provides consent to the transfer of personal information to, and the collection, processing, and storage of personal information in the United States and elsewhere. The laws in the U.S. and these countries regarding personal information may be different than the laws of your state or country.
