“Personally Identifiable Information” consists of information that can be associated with a specific individual or entity, or permits the individual or entity to be contacted either physically or online. This information includes, for example, a customer’s name, address, 911 Service Address telephone number and e-mail address.
Lingo recognizes that any personal information is very important to you, and that you should have a right to control the use and dissemination of that information. Therefore, Lingo collects Personally Identifiable Information for a variety of purposes, all geared toward making your experience as a customer or prospective customer a positive one. Lingo may collect and use Personally Identifiable Information for any of the following purposes:
The information collected by Lingo will only be used internally at Lingo, subject to the limited circumstances listed below. Unless you give us your express consent, Lingo will not disclose your information to third parties who want to market products to you. When Lingo uses agents, contractors or other third parties to perform services on its behalf, and those third parties have access to your Personally Identifiable Information, Lingo will require that those third parties are subject to a confidentiality agreement so that your information is protected.
What are the Limited Circumstances under which Lingo Will Disclose Personally Identifiable Information to Third Parties? Lingo may be required to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information to comply with applicable law. For example, Lingo may be required to disclose certain information under a subpoena, a court order, or as required by a regulatory or administrative agency (e.g., in response to a customer complaint). Additionally Lingo may disclose this information if we, in good faith, believe that this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against individuals who may be a threat to public safety or interfering with Lingo network, services or our customers.
If Lingo is required to or decides to stop providing Lingo Service, or sell or transfer parts of its business to unaffiliated companies, Lingo will provide only that portion of your Personally Identifiable Information that will allow these companies to offer you the same or similar services or as to accomplish our business objectives. Be assured that these unaffiliated companies will be bound by confidentiality requirements and will be obligated to keep Lingo customer information confidential.
Lingo may also share your Personally Identifiable Information with selected third parties for the purposes of delivering special promotions, complimentary subscriptions, and gifts to you.
Lingo collects Personally Identifiable Information in various ways, such as over the phone, over the Internet (if you transact with us on-line), or when you complete an application form for one of the products or services that we offer or promote.

This internet usage data is not resold, and is only used on a macro scale (i.e., aggregate basis) to evaluate the Lingo website. Lingo may also contract with third parties that use “web beacons” on the Lingo website. These web beacons are used to track the performance of our marketing efforts with respect to the Lingo services and no personally identifiable information is collected in the process. This non-Personally Identifiable Information may also be gathered and used for general advertising and/or market research, but shall be authorized by Lingo in advance.
Lingo will not read your outgoing or incoming e-mail, private chat or instant messages. Subject to applicable law, Lingo may store messages for a brief period of time and could be compelled to disclose those messages to comply with applicable law as described in the section titled “What are the Limited Circumstances Under Which Lingo Will Disclose Personally Identifiable Information to Third Parties?”
