Privacy Policy

Effective February 10, 2017

This Privacy Policy describes and governs the information collection, use, and sharing practices of community.lawyer. Please note that this Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by community.lawyer and not to information collected by any third-party sites to which community.lawyer may link or information provided to, or collected by, third-parties through third-party cookies, web beacons, or other third-party technologies served during your visit to the community.lawyer service.

BY ACCESSING OR USING COMMUNITY.LAWYER, YOU AGREE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND ARE BOUND BY THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY.

Information We Collect and Why We Collect It

We collect non­-personally identifying information from users who visit our site, including but not limited to IP addresses, device operating systems and browser versions, referring or outgoing websites, and website usage. This is needed to analyze trends and improve our services.

We also collect personally identifying information. No personally identifiable information will be shared with third parties except with the consent of the provider of the information. The personally identifying information we collect is as follows:

  1. Contact information, such as emails and phone numbers, which is needed to facilitate requests between consumers and attorneys and to communicate with users;
  2. Consumer financial information, such as household income and size, which is needed to estimate what rates consumers may be charged by listed attorneys; and
  3. Other information, such as consumer inputs concerning their requests and user-generated content, which is needed to perform the services requested by users, to communicate with users, or to improve our services.

Sharing Your Information as Permitted by Law

Community.lawyer may share your information with others as required by law. We may also share your information with others as permitted by law. This may include sharing your information with government entities or third-parties in response to subpoenas, court orders, and other legal process. We may also share your information if we believe it is necessary to exercise our legal rights, to defend against legal claims that have been brought against us, or to defend against possible legal claims that we determine might be brought against us.

Business Transition

As community.lawyer continues to develop our service, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies. If a portion or all of community.lawyer’s assets are sold or transferred to a third-party, customer information (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred assets.

How We Secure Personal Information

We take reasonable and appropriate measures to help keep information secure and to help prevent it from becoming disclosed to individuals who are not described in this policy. Even though we follow reasonable procedures to try to protect the information in our possession, no security system is perfect, and we cannot promise, and you should not expect, that your information will be secure in all circumstances. In addition, because no attorney-­client relationship is formed by the use of our service, user communications are not protected by privilege or work product protections.

Miscellaneous

  1. Communications with you — If we need, or are required, to contact you concerning any event that involves your information, you agree that we may do so by email, telephone, or mail.
  2. Children — We do not provide products and services to children and do not knowingly collect or solicit information from children. If you are a parent or guardian of a child under the age of eighteen and believe he or she has disclosed personally identifiable information to us, please contact us at hello@community.lawyer. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of eighteen may review and request deletion of a child’s personally identifiable information as well as prohibit the use thereof. If we become aware that a child under eighteen has provided us with personal information, we take steps to remove that information and terminate the child’s account.
  3. Changes to the Privacy Policy — We reserve the right to modify or amend this policy at any time by posting the revised privacy policy here. Material changes will only affect the information we collect after the effective date of the change to our privacy policy unless we clearly express otherwise.

You acknowledge that you have read, understood, and are bound by the terms of this privacy policy. If you have any questions about this agreement, please email us at hello@community.lawyer.
