Acceptance of the Policy
You accept this Policy by using any part of the Platform, including by setting up or registering a user account.
Changes to Policy
If we make any significant changes to this Policy we will notify you by email, post a notice of such changes within the Platform or flag this Policy on the Platform as updated. You agree to our use of electronic communications with you for purposes of this Policy. If you do not agree to the changes to this Policy, we will continue to maintain and use PI previously collected in accordance with the Policy in force as of that date, but we reserve the right to terminate your further use of your account and your access to any Platform functionality.
Personally Identifiable Information
We collect PI that you provide us in connection with your creation of an account (or Sponsor’s creation of an account on your behalf.) This Information might include your name, address, telephone number, email address, job title, information on your accreditation by any relevant state bar association, user name, password, and other information related to your use of the Platform. We primarily use PI to communicate with you about the Platform and our services, to help you manage your access to the Platform, to analyze activity on the Platform, to assess and address security issues, and to administer and improve the Platform. We may also use your PI to provide you with newsletters or our own marketing materials. We may share your Information with your Sponsor.
We may use PI as required or permitted by law, including in response to service of legal process (court order, summons, subpoena, and the like). We may disclose PI to law enforcement or regulatory authorities as part of an investigation into activity at the Platform (such as a suspected breach) or in connection with your account. We shall use reasonable measures to limit disclosure and use of such PI. We may use PI in connection with the establishment or defense of legal claims.
We may collect AI regarding your use of the Platform, such as computer-related information (the device or browser type you used to access the Platform, your Internet Protocol address, the date and time of your login, and the duration of your session) and aggregated Information.
We use Information in the aggregate for our business purposes and other than as specified in this Policy, we do not use aggregated information in a manner that allows identification of an individual user.
We may use AI to operate the Platform, to enhance the Platform and users’ experience thereof, to understand how our Platform is used, to investigate and verify proper use of the Platform, and to monitor the security and integrity of the Platform.
Cookies & Tracking
We may send to your device a “cookie” or “pixel tag” that contains an identification number that is unique to the device you are using.
We may not recognize or respond to browser-initiated "do not track" signals.
You may decline, through your browser’s settings, to provide such cookies or other information to us, although some of the Platform’s features or services may not function properly as a result, and some services may not be available at all.
Although no electronic method of transmission or storage is completely secure, we have, or have caused to be, implemented technical, physical and administrative safeguards designed to protect PI against loss and against unauthorized access, use, and disclosure. We also contract with third parties that encrypt Information while in transit and at rest. Account passwords are stored in encrypted form, but you are also responsible for the confidentiality of your user information and account password and should act accordingly. If you lose your password, you can generate a new password using the Platform once you have authenticated yourself as the authorized user.
We contract with third parties to assist us in administering or providing the Platform, processing payments, and hosting the Information. This may require you or us to share Information in order to make the Platform available for your use. Such third parties agree with us to maintain your privacy at least with the level of protection set forth in this Policy.
Third-Party Links and Resources
Our Platform may contain links to other websites or other information and materials provided by third parties. We do not own or control such other websites, content, or third parties and are not responsible for the information or services provided by those third parties.
Transfer of Information
We may transfer any information we have about you as an asset in connection with a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of a company reorganization or other change in company control. We will cause the new entity or owner of our business to agree to comply with the terms of this Policy.
Information about Children
We do not knowingly collect PI from or about children under the age of 13. If a parent or guardian believes that their child under the age of 13 has provided us with PI, they should contact us.
Your Access to Personally Identifiable Information
You may request access or updates to your PI or request a correction be made to an inaccuracy in your PI by contacting us as set out below or by using the functionality available on the Platform. For security purposes, we may request PI from you in connection with such request.
Deleting and Retaining Personally Identifiable Information
You may request that we delete or deactivate your account or otherwise delete PI, and we shall attempt to accommodate such requests. However, we may retain and use PI for such periods of time as required by law.
