Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The La'Rent discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The La'Rent’s behalf or to provide services available at The La'Rent’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.
