Collection of Personally Identifiable Information
We collect personally identifiable information about you when you provide it to us. For example, if you decide to complete a user registration form or make a purchase, you may be asked to provide certain information such as your contact information (name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number). If you place an order, we will also need to know your delivery and billing address, credit card number and expiration date. To protect your personal information, users registering at the Site must also enter a user name, email address and password. If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you, please do not provide us with any such information.
LAFCO does not seek to collect such information from persons under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not submit any such information to us. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under the age of 18 who has provided such information to us, please inform us (through the telephone number listed below) and we will remove such information from our database as described further below.
How LAFCO.com Uses Your Personal Information
LAFCO collects personal information to fulfill your requests and communicate with you, operate, support and improve our website, products and services, conduct internal research, and personalize the content, products, services and advertisements offered to you. If you opt-in during the site registration process or at other times when you submit personally identifiable information, the information you provide may be used by LAFCO.com to create and deliver to you emails such as newsletters, and messages containing product or event information (“Opt-in emails).

How LAFCO Protects Your Information
We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer ("SSL") authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception. We never display your full credit card number once it has been entered. We will only reveal the last four digits of your credit card for verification purposes. We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone or share your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail.
To protect LAFCO’s customers from fraudulent transactions, all orders are subject to review and verification. As part of the verification process, an order may be temporarily placed on hold in order to verify credit card billing information, which may include contacting the credit card holder.
Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.

LAFCO may share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. Such third parties may be provided with access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.
Fraud Protection and Compliance with Law
We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We may also exchange information, including personally identifiable information, with other companies and organizations for credit fraud protection and risk reduction.
Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only LAFCO has the right to access this information.
LAFCO does not sell or license personal information.
