Back to terms and conditions
Your privacy is critically important to us. At Lawrence and Harris we have a few fundamental principles:
- We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
- We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
- We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
Like most website operators, Lawrence and Harris 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. Lawrence and Harris’ purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Lawrence and Harris’ visitors use its website. From time to time, Lawrence and Harris may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Lawrence also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Lawrence and Harris does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Lawrence and Harris’ website choose to interact with Lawrence and Harris in ways that require Lawrence and Harris to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, Lawrence and Harris collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Lawrence and Harris. Lawrence and Harris does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Lawrence and Harris’ website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Lawrence and Harrs will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Lawrence and Harris discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Lawrence and Harris believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Lawrence and Harris, third parties or the public at large.

If you send us a request (for example via an email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Lawrence and Harris takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
