The privacy principles and procedures set forth below are intended to tell you how we collect, use, and distribute user information via our primary public website (www.bensonit.com).

Lost Creek General Website Privacy Statement covers the following topics:
Specific Lost Creek Sites and Services
Lost Creek offers a wide variety of products and services. We encourage you to review the privacy statements for the sites we are linked too, services and products that you use. Unless more-specifically addressed (or to the extent otherwise provided) in those other privacy statements, the terms of this General Privacy Statement govern your interaction with Lost Creek.
Types and Uses of Personal Information
If you use this website, personally identifiable information about you may be collected and processed by Lost Creek employees. In general, we only collect such information (such as your name, address, phone number, e-mail address, and type of business) when you knowingly provide it to us. Additionally, Lost Creek may automatically collect or process personally identifiable data (such as your Internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this website or during the course of your activities on or use of this website. In nearly all cases this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, Lost Creek facilities in Canada and in other countries where Lost Creek does business; the data is then subject to the legal systems of those countries. By using this website (which resides in part on servers located in Canada), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of any personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of this website.
Sharing with Other Lost Creek Companies
We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our affiliates throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law.
How Personal Information Is Shared With Third-Parties
Without the user's consent, Lost Creek will not sell, trade, or disclose the user's personally identifiable information to third parties that want to market products to the user. However, Lost Creek may disclose information to third parties assisting us in carrying out a transaction or providing a service for you (e.g., packaging, sending and delivering purchases and information to you, clearing credit card transactions, or performing statistical analyses of our services), or in connection with merger and acquisition discussions. Additionally, Lost Creek may disclose information when required by subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process, or in response to activities that are unlawful or a violation of Lost Creek rules for use of the website, or to protect and defend the rights or property of Lost Creek.
Lost Creek has implemented technological and operational security processes to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. While no security measure can guarantee against compromise, Lost Creek regularly reviews and updates its security measures in an effort to provide appropriate security for all information held by Lost Creek.
