To opt-out of or opt-in to receiving marketing communications from LADO, please take one of the following actions:

Safe Shopping Policy on and

Because the security of your personal information is a high priority, we have taken steps to ensure that it is processed confidentially, accurately and securely. The LADO Websites use encryption technology, such as Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), to protect your personal information during data transport. SSL encrypts ordering information such as your name, address and credit card number. Our schools also operate over a private, secure network.

Choosing a Personal Password on Axess

When you create an online account on Axess, you need to select a personal password. To maximize your level of protection, you should choose at least 6-30 characters including a combination of both letters and numbers. You are solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your password or any account information. You have the ability to purchase on our site without using a password; however, you will have to reenter your personal information each time you use our site in order to make a purchase.


Cookies and Clickstream Technology

A cookie is a small data file that a Website or e-mail may send to your browser, which may then be stored on your hard drive. Our Websites and e-mails use cookies to create a more personalized shopping experience for visitors to our site. Cookies simulate a continuous connection — they let us “remember” information about your preferences and session, and allow you to move within areas of our Websites without reintroducing yourself.

LADO may use a third party to place cookies on your computer to collect non-personally identifiable information. Although our cookies may contain a unique user ID, they do not collect or store any of your personally identifiable information.
You may choose to set your Web browser to not accept cookies. If your cookies are disabled, you can still view our site, but you cannot create an account or make purchases.

Our Web server automatically collects clickstream information such as the address (or URL) of the Website that you came from before visiting our site, which pages you visit on our site, which browser you used to view our site, and any search terms you may have entered on our site, among other things.

Our Website may also use other technologies to track which pages of our Websites our visitors view. This anonymous clickstream data helps us understand how visitors use our Website.

Third-Party Ad Providers
Our Websites use third-party service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and to analyze Website traffic on our behalf. They may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Website, and your interaction with our ads. These companies may use technologies similar to those outlined above to measure the effectiveness of ads and e-mails. They may also use information about your visits to this and other Websites so that we can provide advertisements about goods and services.
No personally identifiable information is collected in this process. We may share anonymous information with this service provider in an aggregate form, for purposes of analysis and improvement of our site.
