The following discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the Websites listed below.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Our primary goal in collecting personal information is to provide a smooth, efficient, and customized experience. This allows us to provide services and features that most likely meet your needs and to customize our service to make your experience hassle-free. You agree that in order to assist our user we may feature user profiles in our editorials and newsletters that we send out from time to time to our members. Your profile is available for other members to view.
We automatically track certain information based upon your activity on our Websites using cookies, internal functions and other devices. We use this information for internal research on our users' demographics, interests, activities and used to better understand and serve you and our community. This information may include and not limited to the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on our site or not) which URL you next go to (whether this URL is on our site or not), what browser you are using, and your IP address.
Personally Identifiable Information: If you choose to create your profile or answer or ask a question or use any Services provided by our website, you must register and create an Account. When you (i) register with us on the Site to become a user (ii) choose to add information to your profile webpage or (iii) create a profile, we will ask you for personally identifiable information. This refers to information about you that can be used to contact or identify you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, your name, company name (if applicable), phone number, email address and home and office postal addresses, as applicable. We use your Personal Information mainly to provide the Services and administer your inquiries. You may register to use the Services directly via the Website or by logging into your account with certain third party social media or social networking services ("Social Networking Site") (including, but not limited to, Facebook) via the Website, as described herein. If you decide to register through a Social Networking Site, we will extract some of the Personal Information which you have provided to the Social Networking Site (such as your name, email address and other information you make publicly available via the Social Networking Site) from the account you have with the applicable Social Networking Site and use that information to create your Account. The specific information that we extract may depend on the privacy settings you have with the Social Networking Site. You hereby consent to our access to and collection of such personal information about you. We also collect the other information that you provide as part of registration and the administration and personalization of your profile webpage (e.g., without limitation, zip code (on its own) and individual preferences) ("Non-Identifying Information"). We use your Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with your Non-Identifying Information) mainly to provide the Services, complete your transactions, and administer your inquiries. Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of your Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. But the same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information (for example, your viewing preferences). We may combine your Personal Information with Non-Identifying Information and aggregate it with information collected from other legistify users (defined below) to attempt to provide you with a better experience, to improve the quality and value of the Services and to analyze and understand how our Website and Services are used. We may also use the combined information without aggregating it to serve you specifically, for instance, to deliver a product to you according to your preferences or restrictions. We also use your Personal Information to contact you with legistify newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please follow the unsubscribe instructions provided in any of the communications.
We use data collection devices such as "cookies" on certain pages of our Websites. "Cookies" are small files placed on your hard drive that assist us in providing customized services. We also offer certain features that are only available through the use of a "cookie". Cookies can also help us provide information which is targeted to your interests. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits.

OUR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION
As a matter of policy, we do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information about you to any third party. However, the following describes some of the ways that your personally identifiable information may be disclosed.
Advertiser: We aggregate (gather data across all our user's accounts) personally identifiable information and disclose such information in a non-personally identifiable manner to advertisers and other third parties for other marketing and promotional purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose to these entities any information that could be used to identify you personally. Certain information, such as your name, email address, password, credit card details and bank account number, are never disclosed to marketing advertisers. We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads on our behalf. These companies may employ Cookies and action tags (also known as single pixel gifs or web beacons) to measure advertising effectiveness. Any information that these third parties collect via Cookies and action tags is completely anonymous.
Other Corporate Entities: We share much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our parent and/or subsidiaries that are committed to serving your online needs and related services, throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will treat it at least as protectively as they treat information they obtain from their other members. Our parent and/or subsidiaries will follow privacy practices no less protective of all members than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law. It is possible that we and/or its subsidiaries, or any combination of such, could merge with or be acquired by another business entity. Should such a combination occur, you should expect that we would share some or all of your information in order to continue to provide the service. You will receive notice of such event (to the extent it occurs).
Users and members: If you ask a question, Legistify's Users will see the content of your question and your contact information. You can choose what Personal Information you provide as part of your question. We recommend that you guard your sensitive information.
Legal opinion: If you make opinion request with an expert via the Services, we will share your Personal Information, including, but not limited to, your name and email address, as well as other information about your request, with the expert so that such expert can coordinate the work with you.
Legistify's Partners: We may also provide Personal Information to our business partners or other trusted entities for the purpose of providing you with information on goods or services we believe will be of interest to you. You can, at any time, opt out of receiving such communications.

CONTROL OF YOUR PASSWORD
OTHER INFORMATION COLLECTORS
We treat data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access.
