Item A: Why do you need my personal information for Member Registration?
In order to provide community services and benefits to you as a Member, Low Country Today maintains a limited amount of your personal information given during Registration and the optional Member Profile Survey. Your identifying information protects your uniqueness as a Low Country Today member, preventing others from using the same log-in or Message Boards Screen Name.
We also compile general Member info to create an in-house demographic profile of our Members for the sole purpose of bringing more relevant content and services to the Low Country Today community of residents, users and businesses. We always welcome and rely upon your suggestions for improvements and additional services.
Item B: Who has access to my Member Registration & Profile Survey information?
First, we pledge that Low Country Today will under no circumstances willingly give access to your Registration or Profile Survey information to any third party for any purpose, either commercial or otherwise. Even in-house use of your information is restricted and password-protected: only a limited number of our Professional Staff can view your personal demographic information.
The information you entrust to us is protected on a secure web server; we have made and continue to make substantial efforts to achieve a well protected environment. However, Low Country Today - nor any Web Site operator - can completely guarantee that your information will be immune from unauthorized access.
