What Information Do We Collect?
USAttorneys.com collects personal information in three ways – through information provided directly from our users, from information collected through web server logs and through cookies.
Information Supplied by Our Users
USAttorneys.com collects personal information, such as your e-mail address, name, home or work address and telephone number. USAttorneys.com may also collect demographic information, such as your ZIP code, age, gender, and legal interests. USAttorneys.com does not collect any of this unique information about you except when you specifically and knowingly provide such information.
Information from Web Server Logs
USAttorneys.com records and saves information about you from our web server logs such as your Internet [Protocol] (IP) address, the time day you visited and your browser type. This information is used to verify our records and to provide better services to you.
Information from Cookies
In order to offer and provide you with personalized services, USAttorneys.com may use “cookies” to store and help track your information. A cookie is a piece of data that identifies you as a unique user. USAttorneys.com will not disclose its cookies to third parties except as required by a valid legal process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order.
Links to Other Sites
USAttorneys.com encourages you to review the privacy statements of Web sites you choose to visit from USAttorneys.com so that you can understand how those Web sites collect, use and share your information. USAttorneys.com is not responsible for the privacy statements or other content on Web sites outside of the USAttorneys.com site.
Use or Disclosure of your Personal Information to Third Parties and Co-Brand Partners
USAttorneys.com will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about you to any third party without first receiving your permission. USAttorneys.com may access and/or disclose your personal information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on USAttorneys.com, protect and defend the rights or property of USAttorneys.com or act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of USAttorneys.com or members of the public.
Certain USAttorneys.com services and content may be co-branded with another company. If you register for or use such services, both USAttorneys.com and the other company may receive information collected in conjunction with the co-branded services. In such cases, either a joint privacy statement or a link to the other company’s privacy statement will be provided, which will provide you with information about how the other company will use the information and how you can contact the other company with requests to access the information or other inquiries.
The USAttorneys.com Lawyer Directory will be sharing all user information with Cornell’s Legal Information Institute for their version of the lawyer directory. We may also co-brand the lawyer directory with other third parties, but will not share information marked private or non-public email addresses with those other third parties.
Content Submitted Or Made Available For Inclusion On The Service
With respect to content you submit or make available for inclusion on publicly accessible areas of the Service, this information will be made public on the Internet. “Publicly accessible” areas of the Service are those areas of the USAttorneys.com network of properties that are intended by USAttorneys.com to be available to the general public. By way of example, publicly accessible areas of the Service would include the USAttorneys.com Lawyer Directory, Wikis, Message Boards and USAttorneys.com developed Websites and Blogs.
