To Target Content

To Provide Interactive Communications from LoJack SCI
To enhance your experience, we may provide you with interactive communications, such as our electronic newsletters, to the email address that you provide to us. Such interactive communications are provided only to those users who have expressly provided us with their permission to receive them as part of their user profile.
From time to time, we may provide emails highlighting new features, promotions, or contests on the website to those users who have expressly provided us with their permission to send such communications as part of their user profile.
To Provide Communications from Third Parties
We respect the privacy of our users and shall not disclose or distribute our user list to any third party, nor shall it permit anyone else to do so. However, we do make available for rental our list of those registrants who have expressly provided us with their permission to receive third party information and offers as part of their user profile. In those cases, your personal information is not transferred to the third party.
Control of Your Information
Users may change their user profile to stop receiving newsletters, or marketing material from LoJack SCI, or on behalf of external third party business partners. Users may choose to stop receiving such communications at any time by following instructions at the end of any email.
As Necessary to Provide Services to You
We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, such as handling the processing and delivery of newsletter mailings, processing transactions, or performing statistical analysis of our services. We will only provide those companies the personal information they need to deliver the service. In some instances, one of these companies may collect information directly from you (such as for credit card processing for purchase of archived articles). In these cases, you will be notified of the involvement of the external service provider. In all cases, these companies are subject to agreements that require them to maintain the confidentiality of your information and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
In the Event of Sale or Bankruptcy
The ownership of LoJack SCI may change at some point in the future. Should that occur, we want this site to be able to maintain a relationship with you. In the event of a sale, merger, public offering, bankruptcy, or other change in control of SC-integrity, Inc. and/or LoJack SCI, your information may be shared with the person or business that owns or controls this site. Opting out of receiving information from third parties will not affect our right to transfer your information to a new owner, but your choices will continue to be respected regarding the use of your information.
As Required by Law
LoJack SCI may disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law, or comply with legal process served on LoJack SCI, or to protect and defend the rights or property of LoJack SCI.
Your information is stored on LoJack SCI's servers located in the United States. We use procedural and technical safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access and disclosure to protect your privacy, including encryption, "firewall," and Secure Socket Layers.
