Information you share with LDSJournal is used for internal business purposes only. LDSJournal is not in the business of selling information about you. This notice tells you what information we collect, steps we take to protect and secure it, how we use and share the information, and finally, how you can access that information or contact us with questions or concerns.

Information We Gather
LDSJournal collects personal information you provide when you register with LDSJournal and use LDSJournal services on the LDSJournal Site (the "Service").

LDSJournal automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser, including your IP address, cookies, and the pages you request.

How we use IP Address Information
LDSJournal may occasionally obtain IP addresses from users depending upon how you access the service. IP addresses, browser and session information may be used for various purposes, including:
  • Diagnosing and preventing service or technology problems reported by our users or engineers that are associated with the IP address(es) controlled by a specific Web company or ISP.

  • Estimating the total number of users visiting LDSJournal from specific geographic regions.

  • Helping determine which users have access privileges to certain content or services that we offer.

  • Monitoring and preventing fraud and abuse.

  • Delivering more relevant advertisements to you.
How We Use Cookies
When you visit LDSJournal, we send one or more cookies - a small file containing a string of characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. We use cookies to improve the quality of our service by storing user preferences and tracking user trends, such as how people use the service. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some LDSJournal features and services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

LDSJournal uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including:
  • Requiring you to re-enter your LDSJournal password after a certain period of time has elapsed to protect you against unauthorized access to your journal.

  • Keeping track of preferences you specify while you are using LDSJournal's services.

  • Estimating and reporting our total audience size and traffic.

  • Conducting research to improve LDSJournal's content and services.
LDSJournal lets other entities that show advertisements on some of our web pages set and access their cookies on your computer. Other entities' use of their cookies is subject to their own privacy policies, and not this policy. Advertisers or other entities do not have access to LDSJournal's cookies.

How We Use, Share and Disclose Information We Collect
LDSJournal does not share personal information we learn about you from your use of the Service or this website with others except as described in this policy. We do not share your information with unrelated third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

When you provide personal information through using the Service you are, however, sharing your personal information with LDSJournal, organizations that may hold a majority interest in LDSJournal, their divisions or subsidiaries and, LDSJournal and any of its divisions or subsidiaries. The use of your personal information by these organizations is subject to this policy.

We do not share your information with unrelated third parties for their direct marketing purposes. However, LDSJournal may display targeted advertisements based on personally non-identifiable information (such as browser type and IP address) and/or personal selection (See the Section entitled "Third Party Advertising" below for more information on how your information is shared with advertisers).

LDSJournal may use your personal information where it is necessary for us to complete a transaction, to operate or improve LDSJournal and related products and services, to do something that you have asked us to do, or tell you of products and services that we think may be of interest.

LDSJournal may use your email address to contact you with required email messages about the Service.

Where you are contacted with an offer or service based on information you have shared with LDSJournal, we will do our best to provide you with an opportunity to opt-out of receiving such further communications at the time you are contacted.

LDSJournal does or may share personally identifiable information about you under the following circumstances:
  • In the course of operating our business it may be necessary or appropriate for us to provide access to your personal information to others such as our service providers, contractors and select vendors so that we can operate the Service and our business. Where practical, we seek to obtain confidentiality agreements that are consistent with this policy and that limit others' use or disclosure of the information you have shared.

  • We may transfer personal information to certain advertising partners that you have explicitly requested to receive information from. It will be clear at the point of collection who is collecting the personal information and whose privacy statement will apply.

  • We may share your personal information to respond to subpoenas, court orders, or legal process, to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims, if in our judgment, disclosure is required or appropriate in such circumstances.

  • We may share your personal information if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of LDSJournal's terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

  • As we continue to develop our business, we might also sell all or part of our business. In such transactions, personally identifiable information you have shared with us is generally one of the business assets that may be transferred. The transferred personally identifiable information will remain subject to the promises made in this privacy policy or subsequent policies to which you have consented.

  • If there is ever a change to how LDSJournal uses or intends to use personal information, we will post that change to this policy and, if the new policy is materially less restrictive than this policy, we will seek your consent.
Third Party Advertising
Advertisements appearing on LDSJournal may be delivered to users by LDSJournal or one of its advertising partners. Our advertising partners may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement. In this way, advertising partners (or "ad networks") may compile information about where you, or others who are using your computer, saw their advertisements and determine which ads are clicked on. This information allows an ad network to deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This privacy policy covers the use of cookies by LDSJournal and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

LDSJournal does not share any personally identifiable information with advertisers. LDSJournal may share general demographic information (such as information about members' aggregate interests and occupations) and non-personally identifiable information (such as browser type and IP addresses) with advertisers and partners. LDSJournal will never give advertisers access to your private personal account information (such as email address or username). However, by selecting, interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

Confidentiality and Security
No data transmissions over the Internet or via wireless networks can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make efforts to ensure security on our systems.

We use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect personal information about you.

Your LDSJournal Account Information is password-protected.
In certain areas, LDSJournal uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to protect data transmissions. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

If LDSJournal learns of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps, however, we will never ask you to submit additional personal information or to verify the status of or information related to your account in any electronic communication email. By using this web site or providing personal information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of this site. LDSJournal may post a notice on our web site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the web site. LDSJournal may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances, however, we will never ask you to submit additional personal information or to verify the status of or information related to your account in any such email.
