We Are Committed to Your Privacy
What Information We Collect
The information we collect on our Site generally falls into the following two categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. The Personally Identifiable Information we collect when you use our Site may include: your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, employer, and job title. We request Personally Identifiable Information when you register for a seminar, request information or correspond with us. It will be clear when you are on a part of our Site that requires personal information, because we will ask you for it and you will have a choice about how we use that information.
We do not connect the Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect on our Site.
Why We Collect Information About You
Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide clients with superior service and to provide all visitors a smooth, efficient, and personalized experience while using our Site. For example, if you request information on our Site, we use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide the requested information. We use Non-Personally Identifiable Information on an aggregated basis to analyze customer behavior to help us understand how visitors use our Site and to measure interest in the various pages. We use this information to improve the content of our Site, to make our Site easier to use.
How We Collect Information
Our Web servers may automatically recognize a visitor's domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the Web page from which a visitor enters our site, which pages a visitor visits on our site, and on some sites, how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information does not reveal a visitor's identity. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our Web site.
There may be times at which we ask you to provide certain information about yourself, such as your name, mailing address, telephone number, email address, occupation, personal interests, etc. Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to access certain services, offers, and content on our Web site.
Using Information About You
While we do not disclose Personally Identifiable Information obtained on-line about our visitors to anyone, we may use some Personally Identifiable Information for services regarding updates, news, conferences, or other information, which we deem to be important to our visitors. If you provide Personally Identifiable Information to us in the context of an event LPG sponsors with another company, you may also be providing the Personally Identifiable Information to the co-sponsor.
Although unlikely, in certain instances we may be required to provide Personally Identifiable Information in response to a court order, subpoena, or government investigation. We may release certain Personally Identifiable Information when we believe that such a release is reasonably necessary to enforce or apply our Terms and Conditions.
LPG will not use or share the Personally Identifiable Information collected on our Site in ways unrelated to the purpose for which you provided the information or without providing you a choice whether to permit any such unrelated uses. At the time you provide your information, we will offer you a choice as to whether you want to receive further communications about newsletters, alerts, firm information or other messages. If you choose not to receive these communications, we will not use the information you provide for this purpose.
If you change your mind and wish not to receive further marketing communications from LPG, let us know by calling us at (212) 758-9300. You can opt out at any time. All email communications from us, such as newsletters, tell you how to stop receiving them. Please follow these instructions if you no longer wish to receive the email messages. If you would like to update or correct your email address, street address or other personal information with us please contact us the same way.
Please remember, if you delete certain information you may not be able to continue access other portions of our Web site without entering additional information.
We at LPG take special care to protect the safety and privacy of children. Our Web site is a general audience site. We do not authorize children under the age of 13 to register with us. We also do not send email correspondence to anyone who tells us that they are under the age of 13.
Children under the age of 13 should always ask their parents or guardians for permission before providing any personal information to anyone online. We urge parents and guardians to participate in their children's online activities and use parental control or other Web filtering technology to supervise children's access to the Web.

Protecting Your Information
We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of your personal information that you share with us. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Web site, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems.
When you make a request from our Site, we use Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") encryption technology to safeguard your credit card and other sensitive information while it is being sent to us. This security measure is working when you see either the symbol of an unbroken key or closed lock (depending on your browser) on the bottom of your browser window.
We urge you to keep any password(s) used in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone. Also remember to sign off your account and close your browser window when you have finished your visit. This is to ensure that others cannot access your account, especially if you are sharing a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place such as a library or Internet cafe.

To improve the services it can offer you, LPG may opt to expand its capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future. LPG will update this privacy statement continually to ensure that you are aware of developments in this area.
We will post those changes here so that you will always know what information we collect online, how we use it, and what choices you have. Please be sure to check this page before proceeding to use our Site. Regardless of any changes we make to our Online Privacy Statement, we will always use your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the version of the Statement in place at the time you provided your information, unless you give your express consent for us to do otherwise.
