Our Commitment To Privacy
The Information We Collect
Our Web site does track certain non-personally-identifiable information about the visits to our Web site. For example, we compile aggregate statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Web site and its individual pages. These aggregated statistics are used internally to improve our Web site and for product development and marketing purposes generally. The aggregated non-personal statistics may also be provided to advertisers and other third parties for certain purposes, but again, the statistics contain no personally-identifiable information and cannot be used to gather such information.
In a few areas on our Web site, we may ask you to provide personally-identifiable information that will enable us to verify whether you are entitled to access and use certain information, materials and services available from our Web site; to enable us to enhance your site visit; to assist you with customer service or technical support issues; to follow up with you after your visit; or to otherwise support your customer relationship with Lawyers Guide. Your provision of this information and participation in the areas that require it is completely optional. You may decide not to provide the information and not to visit or access the areas that require it.
For example, we may request such information from you when you:
1. Log-on to certain areas of our Web site that require your user name and password as a condition to gaining access to the information, materials or services in that area.
2. Register or sign-up to subscribe to a service.
3. Subscribe to a newsletter or ask to be added to our mailing lists for other products or services.
4. Place an order for a product or service.
5. Participate in a sweepstakes or other promotional offer.
6. Provide feedback in an online survey.
7. Participate in any online forum.
In each of the instances above, we typically ask for some or all of the following information: your name, e-mail address, phone number, mailing address, the type of business you are in, product preference information, any applicable identification number or password that we may require, as well as other similar information that is needed to register or subscribe you to services or offers. On occasion, we may ask for additional information to enable us to provide you with access to and use of certain other information, materials and services. In the case of mailed materials, you will be able to "unsubscribe" to these mailings at any time.
How We Use Information:
Lawyers Guide may merge your information collected at our Web site with similar data from third parties for purposes of marketing products or services to you.
Other unique circumstances may arise where we are required to disclose your personal information to third parties, such as in connection with a corporate divestiture or dissolution where all or a portion of our business or assets (including our associated customer lists containing your personal information) are sold, or if disclosure is required by law or is pertinent to judicial or governmental investigations or proceedings.
You can opt-out of receiving further marketing materials from Lawyers Guide at any time. We may send you information about our various products and services, or other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. Only Lawyers Guide (or agents or contractors working on behalf of Lawyers Guide and under confidentiality agreements) are authorized to send you these direct mailings. If you do not want to receive such mailings, you can tell us when you give us your personal information. Or, at any time, you can opt-out of receiving further marketing materials from Lawyers Guide.
Our Web site may make chat rooms, forums, message boards and other interactive features available to you. Please remember that any information that is disclosed in these areas is not protected as confidential and becomes public information. You are solely responsible and should exercise caution when deciding to disclose any personal information in these areas.
