Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Healthy Lombard collects non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request.  Healthy Lombard’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Healthy Lombard’s visitors use its website.  From time to time, Healthy Lombard may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
