Information We Collect.
Information You Provide.
When you access the Website or subscribe to or use any LCM Communications, we may collect and store personally identifiable information (PII) about you that may include your name, email address(es), information regarding your computer system, and other information that you might provide via written communications (ie, within the text body of a contact form communication).
For each visitor to our Website, our web server may automatically attempt to identify the user through a cookie placed within the user’s web browser. This is done to provide users with more relevant access to the Website. From time to time we may also track information, in the aggregate, on pages and features that users access or view. The activity is collected and stored in our server’s log files.
We may log Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, or the location of your computer on the Internet, for systems administration and troubleshooting purposes. We use this information in an aggregate fashion to track access to the Website. Our email newsletters utilize tracking technology that allows us to see how many newsletter emails are opened and the email address of users who have clicked on a given link or feature. We use this information for internal purposes only, to measure the aggregate number of people who view a given newsletter item.
Third-Party Vendors and Service Providers.
How We Use This Information.
We mainly use information about you to monitor and analyze trends to better understand how users interact with our site (including, but not limited to: which blog posts people seem to like the most, which client stories people are most interested in, and whether or not people can find our contact form).
We may process information that you provide to us for the purpose of subscribing to our email notifications and/or newsletters. We use this data for the purposes of sending you relevant notifications and newsletters, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
We may also process information contained in or relating to any communication that you send to us (“correspondence data”). The correspondence data may include the communication content and metadata associated with the communication. Our Website will generate the metadata associated with communications made using our website contact forms. We use this correspondence data for the purposes of communicating with you and record-keeping.
Sharing Your Information.
Third Party Vendors.
We may share information about you with third-party vendors who need to know information about you in order to provide their services to us, or to provide their services to you or your site. This group includes vendors that help us provide our Services to you (like email delivery services that help us stay in touch with you, customer chat and email support services that help us communicate with you, registrars, registries, and data escrow services that allow us to provide domain registration services, and your hosting provider) and those that help us understand and enhance our Services (like analytics providers), who may need information about you in order to, for example, provide technical or other support services to you. We require vendors to agree to privacy commitments in order to share information with them. Below are the third-party vendors/applications that Last Call Media currently engages with:

To Protect Rights, Property, and Others.
We may disclose information about you when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Last Call Media, third parties, or the public at large.
