Like most website operators, LMA/LMF collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. LMA/LMF’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how LMA/LMF’s visitors use its website. From time to time, LMA/LMF may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
As of July 1, 2021, this website does not accept comments on posts, or uploads of media files or other documents, from end users. Interactions with end users that result in LMA/LMF collecting end user personally identifying information are limited to user-initiated actions such as submitting event registration forms, newsletter subscription requests, or grant applications via third-party platforms.
Certain visitors to the website choose to interact with LMA/LMF in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that LMA/LMF gathers depends on the nature of the interaction.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that complete and submit a form or newsletter subscription, or register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide for the purpose of enacting their specific requests.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, have submitted a form, or left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Links to external sites
We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
LMA/LMF may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. LMA/LMF may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, LMA/LMF does not disclose your personally-identifying information.
To enrich and perfect your online experience, LMA/LMF uses “Cookies”, similar technologies and services provided by others to display personalized content, appropriate advertising and store your preferences on your computer.
