What Types Of Information Do We Collect, How Do We Use it and To Whom Do We Disclose It?
Visiting Our Platforms. When you visit any of our platforms to browse, we may collect and store the domain name and host from which you access the Internet (e.g., google.com), the IP address of your computer, your browser software and operating system and your entity identification. We may use this information to organize and analyze IP addresses so that we can provide items such as efficient service, enhance security, monitor appropriate usage and produce traffic volume statistics. This type of non-Personally Identifiable information may be shared with third parties, such as when we aggregate and disclose site traffic information for marketing and commercial purposes. When you visit our platform, you may also choose certain options such as Contact Us to obtain more information about us, or Subscribe to our Newsletter.
Through these options, you may provide us with Personally Identifiable Information.
Information You Submit. When you choose to participate in the questionnaires, you must provide Personally Identifiable Information, including your name, address, e-mail address, phone number, a photo of yourself and respond to the survey questions. We collect and store this Personally Identifiable Information and any modifications that either we or you make to that information. The process of how we analyze your Personally Identifiable Information, such as the details of your photo and your responses to the survey questions, is described on our platform here [insert link]
We will not reveal any such Personally Identifiable Information to any third party without your consent, except as set forth in this policy. For example, we may share User Information with our service providers who assist us in managing the platform and running the research analytics. In such cases, the service providers are permitted to use this information only in order to carry out the services Lapetus Solutions has contracted for. We will also share User Information (including Personally Identifiable Information that you submit) with our client that has sponsored the research. Even though we are acting on their behalf in collecting and analyzing the information, our client will not use or share your Personally Identifiable Information in a way that is inconsistent with this policy.
Furthermore, we may use, disclose or transfer certain User Information (i) to provide you information you request; (ii) to send you additional information about your transaction on the platform such as a confirmation, reminder, or problem status; (iii) to send you a newsletter or other marketing materials; (iv) to protect the confidentiality or security of your records; (v) to comply with government requests if appropriate for your protection or in connection with an investigation or prosecution, court order, or subpoena or similar legal process; (vi) in connection with a sale or merger of Lapetus Solutions or other change in corporate control, or (vii) for other legally permissible purposes. We may also share aggregate, anonymized data relating to the transactions on the platform and use of the User Information for marketing, research and other purposes.
Blog / Forum
Our platform may offer publicly accessible blogs or community forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them.

We use this information to send surveys; and we may use this information notify contest winners and award prizes, to monitor site traffic or personalize the site (in the case of anonymous information collected in surveys), and to send participants an email newsletter. We use a third-party service provider to conduct these surveys or contests; that company is prohibited from using our users’ Personally Identifiable Information for any other purpose.
