Procedure for Making Claim of Copyright Infringement
If you believe that your work has been copied in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you should send written notification thereof, in accordance with the provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, to our Designated Agent, who can be reached as follows:

By mail:

DMCA Designated Agent
Legal Department

Pursuant to 17 U.S.C. § 512(c), to be effective, the Notification must include the following:

(i) A physical or electronic signature of a person authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

(ii) Identification of the copyrighted work claimed to have been infringed, or, if multiple copyrighted works at a single online site are covered by a single notification, a representative list of such works at that site.

(iii) Identification of the material that is claimed to be infringing or to be the subject of infringing activity and that is to be removed or access to which is to be disabled, and information reasonably sufficient to permit LAKANA to locate the material.

(iv) Information reasonably sufficient to permit LAKANA to contact the complaining party, such as an address, telephone number, and, if available, an e-mail address.

(v) A statement that the complaining party has a good faith belief that use of the material in the manner complained of is not authorized by the copyright owner, its agent, or the law.

(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive right that is allegedly infringed.

This process only relates to reporting a claim of copyright infringement. Messages related to other matters will not receive a response through this process.

You acknowledge that if you fail to comply with all of the requirements of this Section, your Claim may not be valid.

If you believe that your User Submission that was removed (or to which access was disabled) is not infringing, or that you have the authorization from the copyright owner, the copyright owner's agent, or pursuant to the law, to post and use the content in your User Submission, you may send a counter-notice containing the following information to the Copyright Agent:
§ Your physical or electronic signature;
§ Identification of the content that has been removed or to which access has been disabled and the location at which the content appeared before it was removed or disabled;
§ A statement that you have a good faith belief that the content was removed or disabled as a result of mistake or a misidentification of the content; and
§ Your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address, a statement that you consent to the jurisdiction of the state of Delaware, and a statement that you will accept service of process from the person who provided notification of the alleged infringement.

If a counter-notice is received by the Copyright Agent, LAKANA may send a copy of the counter-notice to the original complaining party informing that person that it may replace the removed content or cease disabling it in 10 business days. Unless the copyright owner files an action seeking a court order against the content provider, member or user, the removed content may be replaced, or access to it restored, in 10 to 14 business days or more after receipt of the counter-notice, at LAKANA’s sole discretion.

Privacy Statement

This statement informs you of LAKANA’s and this station's practices with respect to the online collection, use, and disclosure of personal information from this Website. This Privacy Statement applies to personal information collected through this Website, but not to LAKANA or this station’s offline business activities.

Personal information is information that allows us to contact you (such as e-mail address, home address, or telephone number) or other information that, when linked to your name or contact information, allows us to personalize your visit to our site by providing you with information that suits your interests. LAKANA and the station are the owners of this website and retain all ownership rights to the information collected at this site. We reserve the right to change, modify, add, or remove provisions of this Privacy Statement. Any changes to this Privacy Statement will be posted here, and we encourage you to review it periodically so that you are up to date on our most current policies and practices.

Although you may use many features of this site without completing a registration or sign-up form, visitors who do register and/or sign up for special services may have access to additional features of the site and are more likely to receive information suited to their interests. For example, a registered user is eligible for additional services provided by this website such as listener clubs, interactive services such as chat room or blogs, and personalized content. Our registration and special services sign-up forms may ask you for contact information (like name or e-mail address) and demographic information (like zip code or age). You must provide the information in order to receive the benefits of registration or of the special service.

We may use the contact information you give us to better tailor your Website experience to your interests, and to send you information about us and our services as well as promotional material on behalf of some of our partners. We use other information that you provide to us to show you content in which you may be interested and to display the content according to your preferences. We will also share this information within the LAKANA family in order to enhance your experience on this and other LAKANA Websites.

In addition, we may share this information with advertisers or other third parties that are not part of the LAKANA family on an aggregate or other basis that does not disclose your identity or contact information.

Online Surveys/Contests
From time to time, LAKANA clients may conduct online surveys and contests that may ask you for contact information (like name or e-mail address) and demographic information (like zip code or age). We may use this contact information from our surveys and contests to provide you with information about our company and promotional material on behalf of some of our partners, and to contact you when necessary. Any contest will, at all times, comply with applicable state, federal and local laws.

Supplemental Information
To enhance our ability to tailor this site to your preferences, we may combine information that you provide us on registration and other online sign-up forms with other information about you that we may obtain. LAKANA retains this data to ensure businesses listed, posted user comments, user nominations and user voting are as legitimate as possible. We do not share that information with any other party, unless otherwise mandated by legal process.

Shopping/Commercial Services
This Website may offer shopping services, which may be offered by us or by a firm that operates a store under contract with us. If our Website offers shopping or other commercial services, you will use a customer order form to request information, products, and services. The order form will ask you to give us contact information (like name or e-mail address), financial information (like account or credit card numbers), and demographic information (like zip code or age).

We will use the financial information that you provide to bill you for products and services. By giving us your credit card and related personal information, you are authorizing our store to give that information to the merchant and credit card company in order to confirm and fulfill your order.

We will use contact information from the order form to fulfill your orders. We may also use contact data to get in touch with you when necessary. We will not otherwise use or distribute your financial information without your prior approval, unless otherwise mandated by legal process.

Public Forums
This site may make available chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups. Please remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information and you should exercise caution when deciding to disclose your personal information.

Information Sharing With Third Parties
From time to time, we may enter into a special relationship with another company that is not owned by LAKANA to provide additional features at this site. These special relationships may include "powered by" partners, business partners, sponsors, and co-branded sites (referred to here as "co-branded pages"). These might include, for example, pages that share our name and that of another entity, such as TicketMaster. You should look for a specific privacy statement on any such co-branded page. Any personal information that you provide when signing up at one of those co-branded pages may be shared with our third party partner. You should also check our partner’s website for information regarding its privacy policies.

Also, the nature of some features of our Website may require that we share personal information about you with persons or companies outside of the LAKANA family. For example, this may occur at a feature that enables you to ask questions of persons or entities that are not part of the LAKANA family. By responding to those features, whether by e-mail or direct entry of information on our Website, you are consenting to our transferring that information to such persons or entities.

With respect to specific registration modules, like contests, we may disclose personal information collected, and we will post a conspicuous statement on the registration module to the effect that we will be disclosing the information collected with third parties.

Finally, we may share any of the information collected from you with these other non-LAKANA companies in an aggregate basis. The aggregated information is not linked to any information that can identify you.

IP Address and Log Files
We may use your IP address to administer our Website, to help diagnose problems with our server, to analyze trends, to track users’ webpage movements, to help identify you and your shopping cart, and to gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

This Website may use a standard technology called a "cookie" to collect information about how you use the site. Cookies reside on your computer and help our Website to recognize your computer's browser as a previous visitor. This information allows us to customize delivery of information. For example, our Website may use cookies to save and remember registration information or preferences that you may have set while browsing here previously, to keep track of your shopping cart, to ensure you don't see the same ad content repeatedly, to deliver content specific to your interests, and to save your password so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit our site. We use cookies only to gather information as indicated in this policy. In addition, on occasion our site may also set a "session cookie" which helps us administer the Website. The session cookie expires when you close your browser and does not retain any information about you after it expires.

Finally, we may also use an ad network provider to help present advertisements on this and other LAKANA Websites. This ad network provider, like other advertising service vendors, uses cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies on the hard drive of your computer to serve you advertisements tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on this and other sites you have visited, and to determine whether you have seen a particular advertisement before and to avoid sending you duplicate advertisements. In doing so, the provider collects non-personal data such as your browser type, your operating system, Web pages visited, time of visits, content viewed, ads viewed, and other clickstream data. The use of cookies, web beacons, or similar technologies by these ad network providers is subject to their own privacy policies, not ours. If you do not want the benefits of these advertising cookies, you may opt-out by visiting http://www.networkadvertising.org/optout_nonppii.asp. However, if you do so you may not receive the full benefit from the use of our site.

Banner Advertising
We license ad-server software from another company to place banner advertising on our Websites. All of the data provided and generated by the ad-server software remains in our possession and no data is transferred to the licensor of the software. This feature may, on occasion, set "cookies" on your computer. Any information collected or stored by the ad-service or the cookies is treated in the same manner as other information as described in this statement.

Children’s Personal Information
Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act:

  • This site does NOT collect, use, or disclose personal information (including online contact information) of children under the age of 13.
  • In the event that a child under the age of 13 attempts to register on our site, we will NOT accept the registration and will delete information received from the child.
  • In the event that a child posts personal information in a public forum such as a chat room, we will attempt to delete that information once we become aware of it.

Access to Personal Information
We give you the opportunity to modify or remove personal information that you have provided to us. You may do so by modifying your password-protected registered user information on our Website.

Security of Your Personal Information
We employ security measures, consistent with standard industry practice, for information collected through this website. We believe that we have adequate security measures in place in our physical facilities to protect against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information we collect on our website. We also use internal protections to limit access to users' personal information to only those employees who need the information to perform a specific job.

Sale or Merger
If this site is sold to, or merges with, another company not owned by LAKANA, you should expect that some or all of the information collected from this website may be transferred to the buyer/surviving company. If so, we will seek to obligate the acquiring company to use any personal information transferred by this site in a manner consistent with this statement, but cannot guarantee that it will be able to impose that requirement or that the acquiring company will comply.

Legal Process
You should be aware that we may be required to disclose your personal information to the government or third parties under certain circumstances, such as in court or regulatory proceedings.
