Los Angeles Copyright Society



The Los Angeles Copyright Society is committed to protecting your privacy online.  This policy explains the information we may collect through your use of this site and how we use, share, and store that information. 

Please read this policy carefully.  It applies to all information collected through our website (https://www.lacopyrightsociety.com) and/or any related services, programs, or events (referred to collectively in this policy as the “Events”).  This policy describes the information that LACS may collect from you and how that information may be used.  By using our website and interacting with our Events, you agree to the collection and use of your information in accordance with this policy.

The Los Angeles Copyright Society (“LACS”) is a nonprofit, unincorporated association within the meaning of Section 180.20 of the California Corporations Code.  As set forth in its By-Laws, the primary purposes of the LACS are (i) to study, analyze, and discuss all phases of United States and International copyright law and other aspects of law and business in the entertainment and communications fields; and (ii) to present speakers on topics concerning and to otherwise disseminate information regarding all aspects of copyright law and law and business in the entertainment and communications fields.

Collection of Personal Information

We collect your Personal Information only when you provide it to us voluntarily through various activities on this website or through your participation in our Events.  “Personal Information” includes your name, organization, mailing address, email address, telephone and fax numbers, State Bar registration number, and credit card information.

For example, the LACS website contains pages where you can fill out a profile, register to attend one of our Events, pay the registration fee for the Event, make your annual dues payment, or send an email inquiry.  We contract with outside providers, including Wild Apricot and its affiliate AffiniPay, to process credit card transactions.  These providers use secure servers, so your credit card number and other Personal Information will be encrypted and will remain confidential. 

At any time, you may contact us or access the website directly if you wish to update, modify or delete the information in your personal profile or if you wish to be removed from any of our mail or email lists.

Use of Personal Information

By submitting your Personal Information through this web site, you give your consent for LACS to collect, use, and disclose such information as described in this Privacy Policy.  We will use your Personal Information to fulfill your request or otherwise to accomplish the purpose for which you provided it.  We also may use it for such purposes as sending you, either electronically or through the U.S. mail, information about our programs, services, scholarships, speakers, and upcoming Events; processing and communicating with you about annual dues payments; and sending you other materials relating to LACS’s operations and activities that we think may be of interest to you.  At any time, you may request that we discontinue sending you these communications by contacting us with your request to unsubscribe, as described in the Contact Us section of this website.

LACS does not sell, trade, transfer, lease, or rent any Personal Information to any third party except as authorized by you or as disclosed in this Privacy Policy.  To provide services to you, we may share your Personal Information with third parties, such as those who facilitate activities on this web site or our Events.  We will not sell or rent your Personal Information to third parties for marketing purposes and will require our service providers not to use your Personal Information for marketing purposes without your consent.

LACS reserves the right to disclose your Personal Information to respond to a subpoena, court order, search warrant, or other legal process, to defend LACS against legal claims, or for other reasons that we determine in good faith are necessary or appropriate.  LACS may transfer Personal Information to its successors or assigns, if permitted by and done in accordance with applicable law.

Cookies and Aggregate Information

A “cookie” is a small text file that can be sent to your browser and placed on your device which allows the website to recognize repeat users, to facilitate ongoing access to and use of the website and to allow a website to track usage and collect aggregate data in order to improve the website.  Through the use of cookies, a website may collect information about you, including personal identifiers such as your name and email address, as well as information about your IP address, web browser version, location of your browser or mobile device, and the actions that you take on our website.

  • The LACS Website.  LACS contracts with an outside vendor to help maintain our website, our membership and electronic mailing lists, and our payment processing capability.  To ensure you get the best experience in using our website, our vendor uses standard technology to read and write cookies and to generate web server logs.  These technologies collect information about your use of the website.  This information may include the date and time of visits, your internet protocol address, the pages your view on our website, the time spent at our website, and whether an online payment has been initiated.  None of this information is directly associated with any personal information you provide to us, and we make no attempt to relate such information to your personal information.

  • Other Websites.  LACS is only responsible for this Privacy Policy and the content of our website.  Our website may contain links to other third-party websites that are not under our control and that we do not sponsor, endorse or maintain.  LACS is not responsible for the content or the privacy practices of such websites, and they are not governed by this Policy.  Please consult the privacy policies of those websites for information about their privacy practices.

For example, presentation materials on our website may include embedded content (such as videos, images, or other media) that comes from other websites belonging to third parties.  Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if you had visited the other website.  This means that these other websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account with the third-party website and are logged in to that website.

  • Managing Cookies.  You may adjust your internet browser to not accept or to delete cookies at any time.  Browsers that allow you to manage cookies include Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Internet Explorer.  You must take these steps on each browser or device that you use.  If you replace, change or upgrade your browser or device, or delete your cookies, you may need to use these opt-out tools again.  If the browser you use is not listed above, please refer to your browser’s help menu for information on how to manage cookies.


LACS uses reasonable precautions to host and maintain this web site in a secure manner and to safeguard it from unauthorized access.  However, no transmission through the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure, so you should submit information at your own risk.  If you send us an email, it is not necessarily secure against interception.

We have implemented controls in an effort to protect your information against unauthorized access.  However, you can also help keep your data secure.  You are responsible for choosing a secure password when creating your account to log into our website.  You should keep this password confidential and choose a password that you do not use on any other website.  You should not share your password with anyone else, including anyone who works for us.

Personal Information of Minors

This website is not intended for use by minors, and we do not knowingly solicit or collect personally identifiable information from minors.  If we obtain actual knowledge that we have collected information from someone under the age of 16, we will promptly delete that information.

Effective Date of Privacy Policy

The effective date of this Privacy Policy is January 1, 2021.  This policy may be updated as industry practices change and develop or as legal and regulatory requirements change.  We invite you to check back here and review this Privacy Policy from time to time.  We may modify it at any time in our sole discretion.  If we make material changes to this Policy that change our rights to use your information that we have previously collected about you, we will notify and/or obtain your consent, as required by law.  Any changes to this Policy will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy on our website.
