Privacy

This privacy policy applies only to the websites and services controlled by LG Electronics Panama, S.A.("LGEPS") where this privacy policy is posted or referenced (collectively, the "Sites"). This privacy policy does not pertain to information that is collected offline or to information that is posted or provided by third parties. BY USING THE SITES, YOU CONSENT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY AND TO OUR PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES STATED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITES.

We collect two types of information from visitors to the Sites: (1) Personally Identifiable Information; and (2) Non-Personally Identifiable Information, such as your IP address or cookies.

(1)  Personally Identifiable Information

"Personally Identifiable Information" is information that identifies you personally, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, or company name. LGEPS collects and stores the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us. Here are some examples of manners in which we may collect your personally identifiable information on the Sites:

  • We may collect your first and last name, address, telephone number and product or service details if you contact us with a question related to our products or services;
  • We may collect registration details about a product or any hardware that you purchase from LGEPS and this information may be tied to your name and address;

(2)  Non-Personally Identifiable Information

"Non-Personally Identifiable Information" can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, location, gender or interests. Non-personally identifiable information does NOT identify you personally. Here are some examples of the non-personally identifiable information that is collected via the Sites:

  • Internet Protocol (IP) address -- Your IP address is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data -- such as the WebPages you view.
  • Cookie -- A "cookie" is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the Sites. For example, when someone visits a page within the Sites, a cookie is placed on the user's machine (if the user accepts cookies) or is read if the user has visited the Sites previously. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized featuresenjoyed by other users to our Sites. Some of the cookies we use may be flash cookies or Adobe cookies. While they are harmless, they may contain non-personally identifiable information and depending on your browser these cookies may not normally be deleted when your cookies are deleted. Please check your browser to determine where these types of cookies are stored and how they may be deleted.
  • Product Information – we may collect registration information or other details about your product or service.  Unless this information is tied to your name or address, it is not considered personally identifiable.

The above list is not all-inclusive and is only intended to provide examples of the non-personally identifiable information that may be collected on the Sites.

We collect non-personally identifiable information from all visitors to our Sites. If you do not want LGEPS to have access to this information, please do not visit our Sites.

B. Use of Information Collected Via the Sites

(1)  Personally Identifiable Information

  • To deliver services;
  • To alert you to special offers, updated information and other new products or services from LGEPS, or other third parties, or to forward promotional materials to you;
  • To complete a transaction or service requested by you;
  • To fulfill the terms of a promotion;
  • To ensure the Sites are relevant to your needs;

(2)  Non-PersonallyIdentifiable Information

Non-personally identifiable information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws, including combining non-personally identifiable information with personally identifiable information.

C. Sharing and Disclosure of Information

(1)  Personally Identifiable Information

We may share or disclose your personally identifiable information in the following instances:

(I)   To fulfill a service to you. For example, if you purchase or download an item from a site, we may share your personally identifiable information in order to provide the item to you. In addition, if you email us a question, we may use your email address to process your request and respond to your question.  In addition, if you purchase a product via the Sites, we may need to share your data with third parties in order to have that product delivered to you and installed as you requested.  Also, if you are entering a sweepstakes or contest, we may use your personally identifiable information in order to fulfill the terms of that promotion.

(II)   To our parent company, subsidiaries and affiliates in order to better serve you.  LGEPS may have to share your data with these parties in order to provide you with services that have been requested by you, or so that we can ensure our services and products are meeting your needs.  For example, in some instances LGEPS may be required to transfer your data to our parent company in Korea in order to provide you with a product or service requested by you.

(III)   To strategic partners, agents, third party marketers or other unaffiliated parties who are offering products or services that we believe may be of interest to you.  These parties may use your personally identifiable information to contact you with an offer or advertisement related to a product or service. If you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information in this manner, please do not provide us with this information.

(IV)   To unaffiliated third-party service providers, agents or independent contractors who help us maintain our Sites and provide other administrative services to us (including, but not limited to, order processing and fulfillment, providing customer service, maintaining and analyzing data, sending customer communications on LGEPS's behalf, and entry collection, winner selection and prize fulfillment for contests and other promotions). We seek to ensure that these unaffiliated third parties will not use the personally identifiable information for any other purpose than to provide the administrative services for which they are responsible. Because such unaffiliated third-party service providers that help us administer our Sites will have access to users' personally identifiable information, if you do not wish for our unaffiliated third-party service providers to have access to your information, please do not register or submit any personally identifiable information to us.

(V)   To comply with the law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary in order to conform to the requirements of law or comply with legal process served on us, protect and defend our rights or property, including the rights and property of LGEPS or act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our end users.

(VI)   To third parties as part of any corporate reorganization process including, but not limited to, mergers, acquisitions, and sales of all or substantially all of our assets.

(VII)   To track and analyze non-identifying and aggregate usage and volume statistical information from our visitors and customers and provide such information to third parties.

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise use, share or otherwise disclose your personally identifiable information to any third parties.

Generally, users cannot opt-out of these communications, but they will be primarily informational in nature rather than promotional.

However, we provide you the opportunity to exercise an opt-out choice if you do not want to receive other types of communication from us, such as emails or updates from us regarding new services and products offered on the Sites or if you do not want us to share your personally identifiable information with third parties. The opt-out choice may be exercised by ticking or un-ticking the appropriate box if such checkbox is available at the points where personally identifiable information is collected or by contacting us.
