We will not share your personally identifiable information once you have informed us that you no longer wish to receive information from us, but we do not have control over information shared with third parties prior to receipt of notice from you.
How Do We Use The Information We Collect?
The collected information belongs to us and is used to improve the content, layout and/or operation of our Web Site. We may release this information in the aggregate, for example, by sharing it with our partners or authorized service providers, or by publishing a report on the usage of the Web Site.
We use personal information and non-personal information for internal purposes, including:
- enhancing your experience at the Site;
- performing administration and technical support for the Site;
- enabling you to enter sweepstakes, contests and other promotions;
- enabling you to use certain services and features available on or through the Site;
- creating aggregate information about demographics and usage patterns;
- inviting our promotional vendors and advertisers”with your permission”to call to your attention special offers, products and services that may be of interest to you; and
- enabling purchases of goods and services.
We may use aggregate information to measure general Site usage patterns and characteristics of our user base, and we may include such aggregate information about our audience in reports to our commercial vendors. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, a certain percentage of our users live in a certain area) without your permission in order to describe our audience to existing and prospective advertisers or other third parties. However, this aggregate information does not reference names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or other personal information, and it is not traceable to a specific recipient or user e-mail address.
We also may share personal information with entities controlling, controlled by, or under common control with LAMAR. In the event that LAMARis merged, or in the event of a transfer of our assets, we may disclose or transfer your personal information and non-personal information in connection with such transaction.
From time to time, we might establish a business relationship with other persons or entities whom we believe trustworthy and whom we have asked to confirm that their privacy practices are consistent with ours (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services including credit card processing, advertising, promotions, analytics tools, data management, Web hosting, and Web development. We provide our Service Providers with the information needed for them to perform these services. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of your information in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to LAMAR or its affiliates, or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law or legal process requires such disclosure. Please note that courts of equity, such as Kuwait Courts relevant to bankruptcy, may have the authority under certain circumstances to permit your personal information to be shared or transferred to third parties without your permission.
As you browse lamar-kw.com and other websites, online ad networks we work with may place anonymous cookies on your computer, and use similar technologies, in order to understand your interests based on your (anonymous) online activities, and thus to tailor more relevant ads to you and enhance user experience to benefit other visitors. If you do not wish to receive such tailored advertising, you can visit this page to opt out of most companies that engage in such advertising. (This will not prevent you from seeing ads; the ads simply will not be delivered through these targeting methods.)
Security and Integrity
LAMAR is committed to ensuring the security and integrity of gathered information about users. We maintain reasonable security procedures and practices to protect the personal information you provide from unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure; and we require that our authorized service providers that have access to your personal information implement and maintain such security procedures and practices as well. For example, we use industry-standard tools such as firewalls to protect your personal information; we host our servers in a physically secure environment; and when you provide personal information through this Web Site, we use a secure socket layer (SLL) connection to enhance security by means of encryption. Please note, however, that Internet transmissions are never completely private or secure and that no security measures are 100% effective against hackers. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of your personally identifiable information and you do so at your own risk.
Please note that while we will assist you in protecting your personal information, it is up to you to protect your password and access to this site.
