Some copies of your information (e.g., log records) may remain in our database, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.

LAMARK will provide access to the data associated with the deactivated account upon receipt of the required legal documentation.
We are continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration. Some of the safeguards we use to protect your information are firewalls and data encryption, and information access controls.
