4. How do third-party advertisers use my information? As an LTTF.com member, you may, at the time of sign up and during subsequent use of our services, request to receive information from select third party sponsors. This information is a good way to learn about special offers on the web. In order to provide you with your requested services, we may share some of your information such as name and e-mail address with third party sponsors.
You may request that e-mail be sent to your LTTF.com account containing promotional offers, editorial content, or calendar reminders at any time. If you have requested such e-mail and you have not logged into your account for a prolonged period of time, we may forward the requested information to your alternate e-mail address. LTTF.com will not disclose your alternate e-mail address to any third parties without your permission.
All promotional e-mails that you request through LTTF.com will include a removal procedure which will allow you to discontinue receiving further e-mail offers. i.e., you can change your mind about receiving further e-mails at a later date.
If you receive an e-mail from a third party stating that it is associated with LTTF.com, yet you do not recall asking for the information, please follow the third party's removal procedures.

7. How may I protect my privacy on the Internet and within LTTF.com?
1. Know the risks. If you provide your e-mail address to public domains such as chat rooms or newsgroups, or you provide it to websites which don't respect your privacy, you may begin to receive unsolicited e-mail. Unsolicited e-mail is also known as spam. Although LTTF.com has strict rules prohibiting spam and we do block certain known groups from sending unsolicited messages to LTTF.com members, it is generally a good idea to provide your e-mail address only to people or groups that you trust. 2. Educate yourself. Look for a privacy statement on every site you visit on the Web, and search for information on how to protect your privacy. 3. Use complex passwords. If your password is simple, it is also simple for a hacker to break it and gain access to your e-mail account or other private areas. To protect your privacy, you should use complex passwords consisting of very long and awkward keystroke combinations. This makes the hacker's job much more difficult.
We send reminders of your account passwords only after the appropriate security questions have been answered. NEVER GIVE YOUR PASSWORD TO ANYONE. If someone claiming to represent LTTF.com in an e-mail or chat room asks for your LTTF.com password, DO NOT RESPOND. The only time we ask for your password is via a web page, when you need to access our system (such as the login screen). Please help us keep our records current by updating your personal information when it changes. You can access your personal information by selecting "Manage Your Account" from the navigation bar.
