Cookies

Like many websites, Luvo utilizes “cookies” to maintain a record of your visit to the Sites. A cookie is a small text file that is transferred by a web server and stored on the hard drive of your computer. It can only be read by the server that sent it to you. This information does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous unless you have otherwise provided Luvo with personal information.

Cookies help Luvo to improve the Sites and to deliver more personalized service by enabling Luvo to estimate audience size and usage patterns; to store information about your preferences; to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to the Sites.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. If you would prefer to prevent your computer from accepting Luvo’s cookies, you may follow your Internet browser’s steps for doing so. Please note, however, that if you do disable cookies from your browser, you may not be able to access certain sections of the Sites.

IP Addresses

An IP address is a computer’s numeric address, by which it can be located within a network. Luvo may record your IP address when you visit or use services or features on the Sites. Luvo may use your IP address for the purposes noted above, and also to help diagnose problems with Luvo’s server, or to administer the Sites. Luvo may also use your IP address to identify you when Luvo feels it is necessary to enforce compliance with this Privacy Policy or the Terms of Use, or to protect the Sites, systems, information, employees, service providers, business partners, users, customers and others.

Protection of Your Information
To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, maintain data accuracy and facilitate the appropriate use of information, Luvo uses physical, technological and administrative procedures to protect the personal information that Luvo collects through the Sites that are appropriate to the sensitivity of the personal information.

By making personal information publicly available where the Sites allow you to do so, you consent to such publication by Luvo or its service providers and agents. Please refer to the Terms of Use for additional provisions relating to user submissions that may apply to you.
