From time to time, we may change this Privacy Statement. For example, as we update and improve our services, new features may require modifications to the Privacy Statement.

What is personally identifiable information?

"Personally identifiable information" is information about you, such as name, address, e-mail address, user ID, credit card number, social security number, and so on.

How is information collected, used, and disclosed?

As you browse through lynxservices.com, LYNX Services does not collect personal information -- including your e-mail address -- you are anonymous as you browse.

ClaimPoint™

On some of our sites, such as ClaimPoint™ we may request that you voluntarily supply us with information, including your first and last name, e-mail address, street address, telephone number, policy number or other information so that you may complete the claim form. The claim information provided is submitted to your insurance company. Whether you provide any information is entirely up to you. The information provided in the ClaimPoint™ application is considered confidential. Within LYNX Services we communicate the need to protect your information to those individuals who may have access to it, and we have established safeguards to protect your information.

METRYX®

For information requested to register with METRYX® it is subject to the Terms and Conditions stated in the METRYX® Registry.

For sites other than ClaimPoint™ or METRYX®, if you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement. We do not sell or rent personal information collected through this site to anyone. Also, LYNX Services may provide aggregate statistics about visitors to our sites, such as volume, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifiable information. LYNX Services may also disclose information in special cases when we have a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to legal requirements or comply with legal process; (b) protect and defend our rights or property; (c) enforce the Web site Terms and Conditions of Use; or (d) act to protect the interests of our users or others.

What are cookies and how are they used?

Some LYNX Services sites, like many other commercial web sites, may utilize a standard technology called "cookies" to collect information about how our site is used. Cookies were designed to help a web site operator determine that a particular user had visited the site previously and thus save and remember any preferences that may have been set while the user was browsing the site. Cookies are small strings of text that web sites can send to your browser. Cookies cannot retrieve any other data from your hard drive or obtain your e-mail address. If you are simply browsing a LYNX Services informational site, a cookie may be used to identify your browser as one that has visited the site before.

We may also make use of memory-based cookies in support of authenticating the user of certain LYNX Services web applications. Similarly, if you are a registered user of a site providing service to LYNX Services clients (and have a user ID and password), we may use cookies so that we can provide personalized information based on preferences you have indicated while using the site. Although you have the ability to modify your browser to either accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is sent, or reject all cookies, it may not be possible to utilize LYNX Services’ services which require registration if you reject cookies.

What are your choices regarding collection, use, and distribution of your information?

If you have voluntarily provided information, you consented to the collection and use of your personally identifiable information as described in this Privacy Statement. If, in connection with your use of a particular service, we ask to use your data in a way not described in this Privacy Statement and you do not wish to permit that use, you can choose not to use the particular service.

How do we protect your information?

We exercise great care to protect your personally identifiable information. This includes, among other things, using industry standard techniques such as firewalls, encryption, intrusion detection and site monitoring. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us or receive from us. This is especially true for information you transmit to us via e-mail. We have no way of protecting that information until it reaches us. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our servers.

Internally, we will restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need access to the information in order to do their jobs. These employees are limited in number, and are committed to our privacy policies. We will review our security arrangements from time to time as we deem appropriate.

How can you help protect your information?

If you are using a LYNX Services web site for which you registered and chose a password, we recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. We will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited e-mail. Also remember to sign out of the registered site and close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if others have access to your computer.

Other sites.

LYNX Services sites may contain links to other sites, including those of our business partners. While we seek to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy, we are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by other sites.
