TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT, AND HOW IT IS USED.
LOH gathers personal information submitted by you. This information may include, without limitation, first and last name, e-mail address, street address and phone number. It also may include other personal information accessible by LOH or voluntarily provided by you, such as a screen name, an SMS address, a credit card number, or other information and/or materials provided by you. (As discussed below, LOH, like most other web sites, also uses certain passive technology to collect non-personally identifying information. We describe these passive practices and policies below, under “NON-PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND PASSIVE COLLECTION OF INFORMATION.”) We collect this information for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, the following: (1) to process and fulfill orders for our products or services (such as our programs); (2) in connection with activities, requests for suggestions, and visitors’ requests for information; and (3) to customize the content on our site for our visitors’ and customers’ current and future needs. In addition, this personally identifiable information may be used for our legitimate business purposes, and/or to provide our visitors, via e-mail or other means, information about materials and activities that may be of interest to them, including products or services of third parties. For these reasons, we may share such information with third-parties. You can, of course, always opt-out, including opting out of the provision of personal information to third-parties. Please see “HOW TO OPT-OUT OR LIMIT THE INFORMATION COLLECTED AND/OR USED,” below. LOH from time to time engages other companies to perform services on our behalf, such as fulfilling orders, assisting with promotions or sweepstakes, providing technical assistance, and developing new products and services. These companies may have access to personal information to the extent necessary or desirable to perform these kinds of functions, but we require that any such company’s use of such information be limited to these purposes. We also reserve the right to use or disclose any information as needed to meet any legal obligation we may have, to protect the integrity and security of our site, to fulfill your requests, to comply with any applicable law, rule or regulation, or to cooperate in any law enforcement or public safety investigation.

OPTING OUT OF AD SERVING COOKIES
You can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You can do this through your browser (like Google Chrome, Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies. If you turn cookies off, you won’t have access to many features that make your web experience smoother, like the features mentioned above, and some of our services may not function properly.
USE OF IP ADDRESSES
We collect IP addresses to obtain aggregate information on the use of LearnOurHistory.com. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by a Web server when you’re on the Web. When you are on our site, we have a back-end server that logs your computer’s IP address. We only use the information we find out from tracking IP addresses in the aggregate, such as how many users entered a specific area of our site, and not to track a specific IP address to identify an individual user. However, we may use such information to identify a user if we feel that there are or may be safety and/or security issues or to comply with legal requirements.
We may use third-party companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site and to monitor traffic to our Web site. These companies may (via cookies, or IP addresses, or other or similar passive information collection technology) use aggregate information about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide us with data about our site and/or to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice, or about the options available should you wish not to have this information used by these companies, please send us an email to the below link, or call us at the number listed below.
