Landbase Community Ventures LLC. (“Landbase Ventures” "Landbase Community Ventures" or "LbCV") operates landbaseventures.org. It is LbCV’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, LbCV collects non-personally-identifying 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. LbCV’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LbCV’s’ visitors use its website. From time to time, LbCV may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

LbCV also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments. LbCV only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to LbCV’s website choose to interact with LbCV in ways that require LbCV to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LbCV gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with LbCV are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, LbCV collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with LbCV. LbCV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

LbCV may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, LbCV may monitor the most popular posts on LandbaseVentures.org and may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LbCV does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

LbCV discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on LbCV’s behalf or to provide services available through LbCV’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. LbCV will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. We repeat, LbCV will never ever sell or distribute your or your organizations personally-identifying data. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above. LbCV discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when LbCV believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of LbCV, third parties or the public at large. LbCV takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

LbCV visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using LbCV’s website, with the drawback that certain features of LbCV’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of LbCV’s may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
