Welcome to the Loud-Hailer website located at www.loud-hailer.com (the “Site”) and operated by Loud-Hailer, Inc. (“LHI”). This Privacy Policy addresses LHI’s practices regarding information collected from visitors to the Site and users of the LHI platform, such as through LHI’s mobile application (the “App”) or its customer content management system (“CMS System”). The Site, the App, and the CMS System are hereinafter sometimes referred to, collectively, as the “Products.” This Privacy Policy only addresses information collected directly through or from the Products – it does not address or govern any information gathering, use, or dissemination practices related to information collected from a visitor (sometimes referred to as "you" or "your") other than directly through or from the Products, such as from telephone, facsimile, postal mail, personal delivery, or other or additional offline means or media. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into LHI's End User License Agreement for the Products by reference, as if set forth fully therein, which must be reviewed and accepted by you. The Products are not intended for children under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information online from visitors in this age group. LHI can be contacted by email at support@loud-hailer.com.

If you are uncomfortable with the idea of your information being used in this way, most computer systems and web browsers offer privacy settings and options, such as disabling cookies or opting for “Do Not Track” features. LHI does not override these settings or options, and encourages you to use them to enhance your choices and personalize your experiences. However, in order to access certain content, features, services, products, or benefits of the Products, you may be required to provide LHI with certain information, including some types of personally identifying information such as your email, your address, and your phone number. If you do not wish to provide such information through the Products or if you opt to utilize the aforementioned privacy features of your computer system or web browser, you may be unable to obtain certain content, features, services, products, or benefits of the Products.
