PRIVACY STATEMENT

We respect the privacy of visitors to our website and strive to maintain the privacy and security of their personal information. At times, we may ask you to provide information about yourself. We encourage you to read this Privacy Statement in full to learn how we treat your personal information and check back regularly for any updates.

Why and how do we collect personal information?
We collect personal information in various ways to better serve you. The personal information we collect may include your name, title, company, address, phone number, mailing address, email address, educational and employment information and other relevant data. We generally do not require this information to obtain access to our website but might ask you for this information when you correspond with us, send us a resume or other correspondence, or make a purchase or request products or services. This information allows us to process your request or purchase order correctly and to contact you should the need arise. If you register for Lehigh's On-Line E-Business Site, the information that you provide will enable you to summarize your purchased volumes, retrieve account status updates and review detailed billing information about your account.

We also use information we collect for our internal purposes, in an aggregated form, to measure number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed, and other relevant statistics. We collect this information to measure the use of our website and to improve the content and processes of our website. We also use "cookies" (small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive) to help make access to the site easier for our visitors and to help us accurately measure usage of our website. In all cases in which cookies are used, your personal information will not be collected unless you expressly agree to provide it. Most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies. If you prefer, you can set your browser to refuse cookies.

How do we disclose personal information?
We consider the personal information contained in our business records to be confidential. We may sometimes disclose personal information about you to our affiliates or to others who work for us. We may also disclose personal information about you to service providers and vendors, and to others who provide products and services to us.

It is not our policy to sell, rent or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties unless:

- you have provided us with your express consent to such disclosure; or

- we are required by law to share your information (whether personal or non-personal), including pursuant to judicial or governmental subpoena, warrants or order. If so ordered, we will obey the law. In addition, notwithstanding any term to the contrary in this Privacy Statement, we reserve the right to use and disclose your personal and non-personal information to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving actual or potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of Lehigh's Terms and Conditions of Use.

All third parties with whom we share such information will have independent privacy and data collection practices and Lehigh has no responsibility or liability for their policies or actions. Lehigh will use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that every marketing offer sent to a Lehigh user as a result of the provision of such information contains a link for the user to no longer receive such offers.

How do we protect personal information?
 Lehigh takes physical, electronic and managerial precautions in our effort to secure against unauthorized access and use of the data you send us. We periodically review our security measures in an effort to ensure your privacy. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal information any time you are on the Internet by changing your passwords often, using a combination of letters and numbers, and making sure you use a secure browser, among other measures.

[To protect the confidentiality of your personal and banking information while it is transmitted over the Internet, our website uses industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption on all web pages where personal information is required. To use Lehigh's On-Line E-Business Site, you must use an SSL-enabled browser.]

When you click on links and banners on our website that take you to third-party websites, you will be subject to the third parties' privacy policies. We encourage you to read the posted privacy statement of any and every site you visit, whether you are linking from our website or browsing on your own.
