Collection of Personal Information. We do not disclose information about your individual visits to our website, your individual contact information (such as your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number), or any other confidential information, to any outside parties without your consent. However, we may share with trusted partners for the purpose of obtaining certain aggregated statistical information about the use of our website. We may also share your information with attorneys for the sole purpose of consideration for the attorneys to take on your case.
We collect personally identifiable information such as your name, email address and telephone number, only when you decide to provide us with such information.
We automatically collect information regarding your visit to our website to maintain and improve the quality of the service and to provide general statistics regarding use of our website. This information may include but not limited to your IP address, browser type, domain names, access times and referring website addresses.
We do not host question and answer forums or public discussion boards (when you participate in such activities, the information you share may be collected and used by others, so use appropriate caution). We encourage you to review the privacy statement of any website you visit, including sites linking to or from our website. The better you understand how websites collect, use and share your information, the more you can protect yourself. We are not responsible for the privacy statements or content on websites outside of our ownership and control.
Use of Your Information. We only use your personally identifiable information to fulfill your requests for information and/or to facilitate contact from a participating attorney. Unless you tell us otherwise, we may contact you to inform you of other products or services available from us or our trusted affiliates. We also may contact you via surveys to conduct research about your opinion on our services or potential new services we may offer in the future. This is not something we will do frequently, but we value your input and appreciate your participation. If you sign up to receive newsletters or to be added to our mailing list, you may receive such information periodically, but you will be able to unsubscribe from these communications at any time.
In some circumstances, we must disclose your information without notice if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us, (b) protect and defend our rights or our property, and (c) in exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of our website users or the public.
Security of your Personal Information. All information we collect is stored in a secure environment. When you are prompted to enter sensitive information, and when that information is stored or transmitted, it is encrypted and protected with SSL encryption software. We also have digital and physical protections in place to secure your information both online and off-line. Only employees who need information to perform a specific job are granted access to your personal information. Furthermore, access to such information is strictly limited, and not accessible to any one outside of our company. Our employees are dedicated to ensuring the security and privacy of all user information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be 100% secure. Any attempt to breach the security of our network, servers, databases or other hardware, software supporting our website or other websites under our ownership and control, constitutes a crime punishable by Federal law. We will provide law enforcement with any and all evidence relating to a potential breach of security or any other abuse against our systems. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we will notify you via email in the event that we learn of a security breach with respect to your personal information. Such notices will only be delayed when necessary to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of a network breach, and to engage in remedial measures.
Children Under Thirteen. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to continue using our website.
