We respect your privacy. Any information you give us is held with the utmost care and security, and will not be used in ways to which you have not consented or which are not described here.
The Website may ask that you complete a registration form, or otherwise provide us certain information, so that we can: (a) register you to receive the Local Link products and services which you have selected to receive, (b) implement those products and services technically, and (c) provide you with new product and service offerings (or promotions for them) in which we believe you may be interested. During registration you may be asked to give your contact information and other demographic and technical information such as: name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, your related Internet access needs, interests, and other information which may help us provide the best and most targeted product and service offerings to you. This information may be used to contact you about the services that we provide on or through the Website, or other products or services we or our partners provide, and also provide a more personalized experience on the Website. This information may be shared with third parties on an aggregate basis, but the Website does not share any of our registrants' personally identifiable information with any third parties except with our registrants' prior consent.
We may also ask for your personal credit card information if that is how you choose to be billed. This information will only be provided to our merchant service providers and other service billing partners as necessary for billing purposes and related purposes.
We may partner with other parties or use contractors to provide specific services. When you accept to receive information or products or services from our partners, we will share contact information and other information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services.
If you consent to receive our offers and information now, but later change your mind, you may at any time withdraw your consent by notifying us at hostmaster@LL.net or by writing us at Local Link, User Privacy Agreement, c/o Tiger Communication, Inc., 116 West Illinois, Suite 6E, Chicago, Illinois 60610. If you withdraw your consent, Local Link will immediately stop using your information except as necessary to administer and/or bill for any Local Link products or services you elect to continue to receive.
The Website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that Local Link is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our registrants to be aware when they leave the Website and to read the privacy statements of each and every site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by the Website.
We may have relationships with third-party service providers and other partners. These third party companies may use the information that you provide to the Website or to Local Link to deliver to you email messages and promotions about goods and services you have indicated are of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, please contact us at hostmaster@LL.net.

We may periodically ask you to participate in surveys to provide us with information that helps us to improve our product and service offerings.

For example, we impose strict rules on Local Link employees who have access either to the databases that store registrant information or to the servers that host our services. While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of data will not occur, we make commercially reasonable efforts to prevent such unfortunate occurrences.
