This Privacy Policy covers LegendFire's treatment of personal information that LegendFire gathers when you are on the LegendFire website and when you use LegendFire services. This policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that LegendFire does not own or control, or to individuals that LegendFire does not employ or manage.

Information Collected by LegendFire

We only collect personal information that is relevant to the purpose of our website, which is to enable users to discover and share information with one another. This information allows us to provide you with a customized and efficient experience. We do not process this information in a way that is incompatible with this objective. We collect the following types of information from our LegendFire users:

Information You Provide to Us:

We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our special features.

Registration: In order for you to use LegendFire services, such as creating new tests, sharing tests, and studying tests, you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require select personal information.

Automatic Information:

We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. LegendFire and its authorized agents automatically receive and record certain "traffic data" on their server logs from your browser including your IP address, LegendFire cookie information, and the page you requested. LegendFire uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website.

LegendFire may collect and, on any page, display the total counts that page has been viewed. This includes User Profile pages.

E-mail Communications

LegendFire is very concerned about your privacy and we will never provide your email address to a third party without your explicit permission, as detailed in the "Sharing Your Information" section below. LegendFire may send out e-mails with LegendFire-related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions. You may also receive notification e-mails from LegendFire, which inform you of actions (e.g. friend requests) that have been performed on the site. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us, please visit the User Options section and follow the instructions contained in the unwanted e-mail message. However, please note that in all cases you will continue to receive all system e-mails (e.g. those regarding forgotten user passwords) and legal notices (e.g. updates to our policies) from us.

Cookies

Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and when pages in our website are visited and by how many people. LegendFire cookies do not collect personal information, and we do not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your screen name or e-mail address is.

The "help" portion of the toolbar on the majority of browsers will direct you on how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to command the browser to tell you when you receive a new cookie, or how to fully disable cookies. We recommend that you leave the cookies activated because cookies allow you to use the LegendFire website. If you disable your cookies, you will not be able to login to the Site.

Some of our business partners, like our advertisers, may use cookies on our website. We have no access to, or control over, these cookies.

Sharing Your Information

Rest assured that we neither rent nor sell your personal information to anyone and that we will share your personal information only as described below.

LegendFire Personnel: LegendFire personnel and authorized consultants and/or contractors may have access to user information if necessary in the normal course of LegendFire business.

Business Transfers: In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, user information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Moreover, if LegendFire, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred.

Protection of LegendFire and Others: We may release personal information when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with a law; to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other policies; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of LegendFire, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

With Your Consent: Except as noted above, we will contact you when your personal information is shared with third parties or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected, and you will be able to opt out to prevent the sharing of this information.

Keeping Information Secure

Your LegendFire account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. Protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by logging off once you have finished using a shared computer.

Only employees who need personal information to perform a specific job (for example, a customer service representative) are granted access to it. All of our employees are kept up to date on our privacy and security practices.
