Aggregated or anonymized information; any publicly available information about lawyers; information about you that is provided by third parties; or information that is posted to publicly accessible areas of the Services is not personal information and may be used publically by LGALX. Personal Information that you post to public areas of the Services or via your profile is not considered personal information and therefore, may become publicly available. For example, information you post in your profile or in client ratings, peer endorsements, Q&A forum, or any other interactive areas may be made publicly available and can potentially be viewed by anyone. Your posting automatically constitutes consent to share such information publicly, and you should assume that such information will be widely disseminated, including via search engines and other tools to locate information online (e.g., internet archive).
In order to provide the level of service we believe you expect from us, we may use your personally identifiable information for the following purposes: (i) to facilitate your use of the Services, to process your requests, to provide you with information, products and services you request, to administer and assist us with the operation of our business, and for the purpose for which the information was provided; (ii) to do all things necessary to administer those Services; (iii) to research, develop, manage, protect and improve our Services and products and include new features and services; and (iv) to analyze data, or to have a third party do so on our behalf (for example, for payment processing, data storage, customer service, email delivery, and to assist us in our marketing efforts). If you use our website, information may also be used to evaluate what portions of our website are visited more often than others, determine where Users come from, where they go, and how long they stay on a particular page, or on our website in general. We may disclose your personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or with legal process or authorities, respond to any claims, or to protect the rights, property or safety of the Services, our Users, our employees or the public, including without limitation to protect LGALX or our Users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of the Services. We may use the information we collect to send you news relevant to you or in accordance with your preferences. We may also send you advertisements from third parties. We do not disclose or make available your personally identifiable information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
Information about our Users (including personal information) may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which information and data could be transferred to third parties as one of LGALX’s business assets. In such an event, we will attempt to notify you before your personal information is transferred, but you may not have the right to opt out of any such transfer.
You can correct certain information by logging into your account and changing the information, and you may also delete certain information by closing your account. In addition, lawyers may change certain information contained in their profile by claiming their profile and editing the information contained therein. Please note that in certain circumstances, we may not, or may not be able to, remove or change certain information, even in the event an account is closed. For example, we may retain and continue to display any information you provided in connection with a question, answer, endorsement or client review.
You may, at any time, decline to share your personal information with us, in which case you will not be able to access some of the features and functionality found in the Services. You may “opt out” of receiving communications from us at the point where we request information about the Visitor by emailing us at email@example.com. However, this shall not affect our ability to send you service and account related emails and to use your personal information as otherwise described in this Policy. If you register as a Member, you may update, correct, or delete your profile information and preferences at any time by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you request your account information be deleted from our database, we may maintain information about individual sales transactions for recordkeeping and servicing.
LGALX endeavors to secure your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure by putting into place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard the information we collect. Additionally, your account information is accessible online only through the use of a password. No security measures are perfect or impenetrable. To protect the confidentiality of your personal information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all use of the Services by any person using your password. Please contact us immediately by emailing us if you believe your password has been misused.
While this Policy states our standards for maintenance of data and we will make efforts to meet them, we are not in a position to guarantee these standards. You should not expect that your personal information or private communications will always remain private. There may be factors beyond our control that may result in disclosure of data. As a consequence, we disclaim any warranties or representations relating to maintenance or nondisclosure of data.
We may change the provisions of this Policy at any time, and we will always post the most up-to-date version on our website. However, we will not notify you personally. Therefore, make sure to check this Policy regularly.
Please contact the LGALX team with any questions or comments about this Policy, your personal information, our third-party disclosure practices, or your consent choices by email at email@example.com.
