This Policy describes how LMI Group International, Inc., including its affiliates (collectively “LMI Group”), treats personal information that it collects on www.lmigroupintl.com and its associated websites and services (each a “Website”). This Policy does not apply to information that LMI Group collects other than through a Website. This statement governs information you provide to LMI Group or that LMI Group learns from your use of a Website and tells you how LMI Group may collect and use information, the circumstances in which LMI Group discloses or share information, and how you can access, update or delete certain information LMI Group has collected about you.
Information That LMI Group Collects
When you visit a Website, LMI Group may collect certain personal information about you, such as your name, address and email address as well as any other personal information that you may provide. In addition, LMI Group may give you the option to provide it with certain demographic information about yourself and to upload photographs or other personally identifiable information. Unless you voluntarily provide or send LMI Group personally identifiable information, LMI Group will always ask your permission before collecting your personally identifiable information. If you provide or submit your personally identifiable information to LMI Group, it will provide you with the ability to review, update and/or delete your personally identifiable information, subject to its obligations to comply with legal, regulatory, internal audit and record-keeping requirements. To update and/or delete your personally identifiable information you have on file with LMI Group, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
LMI Group collects the following non-personal information about you and your visit or visits to a Website:
• the IP address and domain name used (the numerical identifier assigned either to your Internet service provider or directly to your computer);
• the type of browser and operating system you use;
• the date, time and duration of your visit to a Website, the number of times you visited a Website and your geospatial location at the time of each visit.
LMI Group and its operational service providers and others who host the Website often use technology that can recognize, collect and/or transmit information that is associated with the device you use to access and otherwise interact with the Website. Although the term “cookie” specifically refers to a small text file that is stored on a User’s computer for record-keeping purposes, LMI Group uses the term “cookie” to refer generically to any technology that can recognize, collect and/or transmit information about your visits to the Website. This type of information includes such data as the Internet or web domain that referred you, the type of operating system and browser you are using, the date and time of your visit, data relating to activities on the Website (e.g., so-called ‘clickstream’ data) and other technological attributes about your visit to the Website. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the Website, track user movements on the Website, and gather aggregate demographic information about visitors so we can continually improve the Website. Cookies also allow the Website to recognize your computer or access device each time you visit and cookies can keep count of how often you return. Cookies can also track how you use the Website and your preferences for features and functions, and cookies can store information such as your user name and password so that you don’t have to re-enter them each time you return to visit.
When you visit the Website, LMI Group may send one or more cookies – a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. LMI Group uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Website. By using these cookies, LMI Group can “remember” what you have done on the Website before and personalize the Website for you. These persistent types of cookies can be removed. You can disable or turn the cookie feature off by changing the settings on your Internet browser and you can also change the settings to stop your browser from automatically accepting cookies. Each web browser implements different functionality, so please refer to the manuals or technical support resources that are available in conjunction with your web browser to learn the correct way to modify your cookies set-up. If you are using the Website in a jurisdiction where your prior consent is required for LMI Group to deploy any particular cookies, you will be asked to accept such cookies before they are deployed. Please note that disabling cookies or declining to accept certain cookies will prevent you from accessing some of the functionality and site offerings available via the Website, and may also require you to re-enter certain information each time you visit or attempt to use the Website.

Protection of Information
No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, LMI Group cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to LMI Group and you do so at your own risk. Once LMI Group receives your transmission, it makes reasonable efforts to ensure security on its systems. LMI Group is strongly committed to protecting any personal information collected through a Website against unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Your personal information is not collected for commercial or marketing purposes. LMI Group will not sell or otherwise disclose any personal information collected from a Website, other than as described in this Policy. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be illegally or improperly accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

LMI Group cannot, and does not, guarantee the effectiveness of the security systems and procedures of those third parties.
In addition, LMI Group has implemented procedures to safeguard the integrity of its information through technology assets, including, but not limited to, authentication, monitoring, auditing, and encryption. These security procedures have been integrated into the design, implementation, and day-to-day operations of a Website as part of a continuing commitment to the security of electronic content as well as the electronic transmission of information.

Each Website is subject to United States laws, which may not afford the same level of protection as those in your country of residence, incorporation or legal domicile.
If LMI Group learns of a security systems breach, then it may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Website or providing personally identifiable information to LMI Group, you agree that it can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy, and administrative issues relating to your use of the Website.
