What Information We Collect
You are not required to give us any personal information to browse LiveLifeResources websites.

If you purchase products, services, event registrations, and other for-sale items from us, we will collect payment information from you at the time. If you elect to pay with a credit card, that information is never stored on our servers nor on any third-party platform we employ to process credit card transactions. LLR staff will never have access to your credit card data unless you provide it directly to us. If you provide your credit card data to us verbally or through our secure fax number, that information is never duplicated and is destroyed after the proper processing of your request.
When completing forms on LiveLifeResources websites, the IP address of the network you are using may also be collected with the personal information you provide. Your IP address is used by the LLR only to administer our website(s) and help diagnose server and website error reports and is not stored in any other record. We do not collect IP addresses on anonymous forms and surveys.
Other information than what is outlined here may be requested depending on the circumstances, but it is completely voluntary to provide it.
In addition, when you interact with LLR websites, our servers may keep a log that does not identify you personally (“non-personal information”) since we do not combine it with any identifying information. We use this data to ensure the security and performance of our websites and mitigate website and server issues. This data includes:
- Device information used for accessing the website such as device type, platform, IP address, geolocation information, unique device identifiers, browser type, browser language, and other transactional information; and
- Other “traffic data” such as time of access, date of access, error reports, pages accessed, and referring website addresses.

- Demographic data such as age, gender, general interests, and five-digit zip code;
- Usage information about what is accessed on the website including pages viewed and time spent on the website; and
- Search terms and search results.
There are many ways that you can control non-personal data that your computer sends sent to us but it depends largely on privacy settings you control through your internet browser. We suggest that you visit your internet browser setting options to limit to stop this data from being sent to us.
