- What Information Do We Collect?
Information You Provide to Us
When you register for an account with Lihtec or use our Services, we may ask you to provide us with certain information such as: (1) information that could reasonably be used to identify you personally, such as your name, address, email address, or phone number (“Personal Information”); and (2) other information about things like your accredited investor status or development experience. We may combine non-personal information with Personal Information, but we will treat the combined information as Personal Information as long as it is combined.
The Services are operated in the United States and intended for users located in the United States.
The Services are not intended for anyone under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from children younger than the age of 13. We will delete any Personal Information collected that we determine to be from a user younger than the age 13. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13 and believe he or she has disclosed Personal Information or other information to us, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org via email.

In addition to any Personal Information or other information that you choose to submit to us, we and our third-party service providers may use a variety of technologies that automatically collect certain information telling us how you access or interact with the Services (“Usage Information”). The Usage Information we may collect includes:

When Third Parties Provide Services on Our Behalf. We may use third party service providers or vendors to support or perform certain aspects of the Services on our or your behalf, such as hosting the Services, designing or operating the Services’ features, tracking the Services’ analytics, providing data used, directly or indirectly, in connection with the Services, marketing the Services, enabling Lihtec to contact you with offers or performing other administrative services.

- How Do I Access and Change My Personal Information or Change My Communications Preferences?
Accuracy of Your Personal Information
You are responsible for maintaining the accuracy of the information you submit to us, such as your contact information provided as part of registration.

New categories of marketing communications might be added to the “Communications and Monitoring” page from time to time.
Terminating Your Account
Your California Privacy Rights
California’s “Shine the Light” law, California Civil Code § 1798.83, requires certain businesses to respond to requests from California customers (those who have an established business relationship with us) asking about the business’ practices related to disclosing Personal Information to third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. We do not share customer information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and California’s Shine the Light law therefore does not apply to Lihtec.
For additional information, or if you have questions regarding this policy or privacy practices at Lihtec, please submit your questions or comments directly to firstname.lastname@example.org via email.
