Lightning Capital and its affiliates and related entities (collectively, “Company”) are committed to protecting the privacy of certain data that is collected from you and that you submit when you access this web site or web sites under our operation and control (collectively, the “Site”). We recognize the sensitive nature of much of the information with which we are entrusted on a daily basis, and we are committed to the highest standards of privacy.

The following outline is intended to familiarize you with our policies for the gathering, use, maintenance and protection of private information.

Most of our information comes directly from you when you register on the Site, order our service, enter a promotion such as a sweepstakes, answer our polls or surveys, sign up for additional services on our Site, or communicate with us by mail, telephone or electronically.
