We take your privacy seriously. We provide this Policy so that you understand how we treat the information that you provide us as you use the Service (“Collected Information”).
This Policy applies only to information that we collect via the Service. It may not apply to information that we may collect in other ways (for example, via phone calls or through your emails to us). We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. Any changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately as soon as we give you notice of them, which we may do by means including updating this Policy or by email to you if you have provided us with your email. It is your responsibility to review this Policy periodically and to be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of the Service after any modification means that you acknowledge the change and consent to the practices that we disclose in the Policy.
We collect information in these ways:
User-Provided Information. The Service offers users the option to manually provide us with their name, contact information, credit-card payment information and information about legal matters that they may wish to discuss with us. If you wish to provide us this information without doing so through the Service, you may call or email us instead. You are also free to use the Service without manually providing us with any information of any type.
Automatically Collected Information. When you use the Service, we may automatically collect or generate information including but not limited to the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer; web pages that you access within the Service; geographic information; a unique user ID; the type of browser, device or operating system you use; referring services or websites; search information; and usage and browsing information.
We refer to all of the information described in this section as “Collected Information.”
We use Collected Information to deliver services to you, to bill clients who have chosen to provide us with their payment information for billing purposes, and for communicating with you about the Service. We will never use your private customer information for our own purposes, except as expressly described in this Policy or in a written agreement with you. If we use your email address to communicate with you, you will always have the option to opt out of future emails.
We will not sell, rent, trade, license or otherwise disclose Collected Information to anyone, except:
– to provide payment-related information to financial services and credit card processing companies in order to process payment transactions;
– where necessary for us to work with third-party companies that we use to provide the Service (“Third-Party Services,” detailed below);
– to disclose such information in response to a court order or investigation or where otherwise required by law; or
– to disclose to another law firm in the course of a business acquisition, merger or sale of assets.
We use various Third-Party Services to operate the Service. These currently include Google Forms, Paypal, Square Cash, LawPay, Bookly and Tinyletter. We may use other Third-Party Services in the future. Third-Party Services will handle Collected Information according to their own privacy and security policies, so we encourage you to read those services’ own policies. By using our Service, you consent to our providing Collected Information with Third-Party Services to be used in accordance with their own privacy and security policies as they exist today and as they may change in the future.
We use reasonable efforts to protect your Collected Information, but we cannot guarantee that your it will be free from unauthorized access by third parties such as hackers. By using the Service, you consent to our using your Collected Information as described in this Policy notwithstanding this risk, you waive any claims against us relating to the interception, use or disclosure of Confidential Information by third parties unauthorized by us; and you agree to notify us promptly if you suspect any unauthorized usage of Confidential Information. For more information on protecting your privacy, please visit www.ftc.gov/privacy.
If you would like us to update any of the User-Provided Information that you have provided us, you may call or email us and we will be happy to update it.
We make no representations, warranties or promises about the security of Collected Information except as we state expressly in this Policy or where required by law.
