Notification

Please note that Lendaland, Inc. has a policy of using commercially reasonable efforts to notify users in the United States when we receive legal process from a third party requesting user data. Generally, except where a court order (and not just the request for information itself) requires delayed notification or no notification, or except where notification is otherwise prohibited by law or where we, in our sole discretion, believe that providing notice would be futile, ineffective or would create a risk of injury or bodily harm to an individual or group, or to our property, we will endeavor to provide reasonable prior notice to the relevant user of the request for user data in the event the user wishes to seek appropriate protective relief.

Generally, we will notify the relevant user of your request except where a court order (not a request) expressly requires us to delay or withhold notification, or where notification is otherwise prohibited by applicable law, or where based upon the information supplied by law enforcement we, in our sole discretion, believe that providing notice would be futile or ineffective or would create a risk of injury or great bodily harm to our rights or property or to an individual or group of individuals, including minors.
