Under special circumstances we may, and you authorize us to, disclose personally identifiable information without your consent if we believe, in our sole discretion, it is reasonable to do so to satisfy laws (such as the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, as amended) or government regulations, comply with legal process or law enforcement requests, commence legal actions for violation of our Web Site User Agreement or to protect Leck’s rights or property.
We use commercially reasonable precautions to secure the personally identifiable information we maintain about you on computer servers in an appropriately controlled, secure environment. We also use encryption technology when collecting sensitive information such as a credit card number.
