You are not required to register or give us any personal information about yourself in order to visit the Website and or to view certain features made generally available on our Website.

Although registration is not required to visit our Website, in order to access our premium features available on our Website, and in order to use certain other services that may be offered on our Website, you will be required to register and create an account with LingualBox ('LingualBox Account'). When you create your LingualBox Account, you will be required to provide certain personal information from you, including your first and last name, a user name (which will be your email address), the country in which you reside, your phone number and a password. At other times, you may also be asked to provide us with additional information, such as your age, gender, and other personal information about yourself in order to receive additional information about our services.
In addition, prior to using the Service, you may also be required to provide your credit card information and your billing address. If you authorize us to do so, we will retain your credit card information in our database to facilitate your checkout process for future transactions.
As part of the process to create an LingualBox Account or to participate in certain promotions offered by LingualBox such as entering sweepstakes, contests, surveys, newsletters, etc., in addition to name, email and address, you may be asked to provide certain information which, by itself, does not personally identify you. For example, you may be asked to provide information concerning your education or preferences, purchasing habits, and the like. LingualBox may request this information in order to enhance your online experience by understanding you better and to also make you aware of new services, programs or offers in which you may be interested.
You may be able to visit our Website and use certain of our services while remaining anonymous. However, whether you have registered with us or not, LingualBox may still collect certain non-personally identifiable information about your use of our services. For example, LingualBox might collect information concerning the type of Internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, your IP address, your connection speed, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the geographic location from which you are accessing our service and/or the Website or advertisement from which you linked to the Website. Once you have registered with us, we also track and collect information about you, including your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others, and your site usage patterns, such as the pages on the Website you have visited, searches you have conducted and the amount of time you have spent on our Website. If you contact us, we may keep a record of your correspondence.
When you visit our Website or click through hyperlinks appearing thereon, or use one or more of our services, we may use an industry-wide technology called 'cookies' which stores certain information on your computer and which will allow us to customize your experience to better match your interests and preferences or simply facilitate your signing-in to use the services. Most browsers will allow you to erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block acceptance of cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Please note, however, that if you set your browser to block acceptance of cookies, you may not be able to use the Service or enter our Website or it may otherwise adversely impact the functionality of the site.
In general, LingualBox may use information about you to provide and improve its Service. LingualBox may share this information with the suppliers of content on the service, affiliates and other entities in non-personal form to show general demographic and preference information among users of the Service or for other purposes. This information may include usage and demographic data, but it will not include personal information (such as your email address).
As part of the Service, LingualBox may provide you feedback regarding your progress in the form of video messages hosted on third party websites, which messages can be viewed by other users of such third party websites. Although these video messages will not identify you by name or photograph, if you do not wish to receive such feedback, you will have the ability to opt-out of receiving and having such messages hosted on the third party websites.
In order to keep you informed about our services, we may send e-mails and announcements that are needed for the administration of our Website and Service. We also may provide our users with the option of joining our mailing list to receive additional information about our Website, services and offers, including the services and offers of LingualBox, Inc. or its affiliates. Additionally, we may, from time-to-time, allow you to choose whether you would like to receive mailings from third parties with whom we have affiliate relationships. You will always have the ability to change your options by accessing your LingualBox Account. Each marketing e-mail from LingualBox will include instructions for how to unsubscribe from our mailing list.
We use reasonable security methods to protect the data that resides on our servers. However, because no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers. It is also possible that information you supply to us will be intercepted during transmission.
Whenever you give LingualBox sensitive information (e.g., credit card numbers), LingualBox will take commercially reasonable steps to protect such information by establishing a secure connection with your Web browser. LingualBo employs an industry standard technology known as a secure-socket-layer ('SSL') to protect the transmission of payment information to the Website. You can check the security of your connection by looking at the address in your browser window. After you have accessed a secure server protected by SSL, the first characters of the address will change from 'http' to 'https.'
To help protect your LingualBox Account information, please keep your password secure. Your password will be maintained on our system in encrypted form because LingualBox understands that privacy is important to you. LingualBox will generate a new password in case you forget it and send it to the email account you provided. This will not affect your settings in any way. We suggest that you pick a non-obvious password that mixes numbers and letters. In addition, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. Ultimately, you are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your passwords and any LingualBox Account information.
Remember to sign out of your LingualBox Account, and close your browser window whenever you leave your computer. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information, because your computer may be accessible to others or used in a shared setting.
Consistent with the federal Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of thirteen (13) without requiring parental consent. Any person who provides their personal information to us through the Service represents that they are 13 years of age or older.
LingualBox does not provide any personally identifiable information to these third-party ad servers or ad networks without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in. However, please note that if an advertiser asks LingualBox to show an advertisement to a certain audience or audience segment and you respond to that advertisement, the advertiser or ad-server may conclude that you fit the description of the audience they were trying to reach.
