We may release the information we collect to a third party if the information is provided to enable the third party to provide services to us, provided that the third party has agreed to use at least the same level of privacy protections described in this Privacy Policy, and is permitted to use the information only for the purpose of providing services to us.

We store information you provide to us on a computer system located in a controlled facility with limited access and our company databases are accessible only by LRNGO. However, while we make reasonable efforts to prevent third party, non-affiliate access to personally identifiable information, all data transmission over the Internet is not 100% secure, and information disclosed online can potentially be collected and used, illegally or otherwise, by those other than the intended recipients. Therefore, despite these safeguards, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to our Website, or guarantee that information on our website will not be improperly accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

We use reasonable measures to safeguard the security and integrity of your personal information through procedures and technology designed for that purpose. You should always safeguard your own personal information by protecting any passwords or other identifying information used to access your account with us and by safely disposing of any personal information that is no longer needed.

Verification

LRNGO, INC. utilizes the self-assessment approach to assure its compliance with its Privacy Policy. LRNGO regularly verifies that the Privacy Policy is accurate, comprehensive, and prominently displayed, and conducts its self-assessment periodically to ensure that all relevant privacy practices are being followed. Internal procedures for periodically conducting objective reviews of compliance are in place.
