What information are you collecting and how are you collecting it?
Every computer connected to the Internet is given a domain name and a set of numbers, that serve as that computer’s "Internet Protocol" IP address . When a visitor requests a page from any Web site within the Lynx, our Web servers automatically recognize that visitor’s domain name and IP address. The domain name and IP address reveal nothing personal about you other than the IP address from which you have accessed our site. We use this information to examine our traffic in aggregate, and to investigate misuse of the Lynx, its users, or to cooperate with law enforcement. See also Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties? We do not collect and evaluate this information for specific individuals. Our Web servers do not automatically record e-mail addresses of the visitors.

What information do you collect when I register for something?
Lynx offers access to some services that require registration. We may use your registration contact information to send notification to you of Lynx products and services by e-mail and/or postal mail. We also may share that information with our clients. Our clients may send you promotional material that is related to the topic of the service for which you registered. We may also use your IP address internally and share it with third parties. See Will you disclose the information that you collect to outside third parties?
What information do you collect when I purchase something?
Lynx uses 256 bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encrypted servers. SSL codes the information transferred between you and the server, rendering it unreadable to anyone trying to intercept the information. Other Lynx media properties do not use SSL and thereby do not offer a secure coded way to transfer information.
Will you disclose the information you collect to outside third parties?

1) Cooperate with the investigations of purported unlawful activities and conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Lynx,
2) Protect and defend the rights or property of the Lynx of sites and related properties, or visitors to the Lynx of sites and related properties,
3) Identify persons who may be violating the law, the Lynx legal notice and Web site User Agreement, the rights of third parties, or otherwise misusing the Lynx or its related properties,

Lynx reserves the right to transfer all such information in connection with the sale of all or part of Lynx’s capital stock or assets.

We are not responsible for such third party privacy policies or how they treat information about their users See below, What else should I know about my privacy when online?
