If you do not accept this Privacy Policy and/or do not meet and/or comply with the provisions set forth herein, then you may not use any of the Platform.

1. Information we collect

When you use our Platform, you may provide LawyerLetter with two main types of information: (1) Non-Personal Information and (2) Personal Information.  We collect information from you when you (a) use and/or access our Platform, (b) open and/or respond to our emails, (c) contact LawyerLetter, (d) visit any page online that displays our content, (e) purchase products and/or services through our Platform, and/or (r) provide information to any of our Service Providers (as defined below).

1.1 Personal Information

“Personal Information” is personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis.  We may ask for certain Personal Information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request.  We collect Personal Information such as your: (i) contact information (including name, address and email); (ii) information regarding the details of your situation for purposes of having a Service Provider prepare a letter or other document, (iii) financial information (such as credit card number, expiration date, verification number and billing address); (iv) contact information of your company and/or other identity information you share with us (including industry or profession); (v) location information (such as geographic location of the device you are using) and/or (vi) preferences and feedback.  By using our Platform, you are authorizing us to collect, store and use your email address, and other such information you provide, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  Once you use our products or services, you have opted in to receive electronic communications from LawyerLetter.  If you use an external application accounts (like ‘Google’) to sign into the Platform, we will collect and store your user identification information (“ID”). The privacy practices of external applications and websites are set forth in their privacy policies, and LawyerLetter has no control over the use of your ID by such parties.  LawyerLetter may also provide you with the opportunity to participate in surveys through our Platform.  If you participate, we will request certain personally identifiable information.  Participation in surveys is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether to disclose such information.

1.2 Non-Personal Information

“Non-Personal Information” is general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you use our Platform.    We collect Non-Personal Information such as:

Cookies: We use cookies and web log files to track usage and trends, to improve the quality of our Platform and to customize your experience.  A “cookie” is a data file that resides on your computer, mobile phone, or other device, and allows LawyerLetter to recognize you as a user when you return to our Platform using the same computer and web browser.  Information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, and time spent at our Platform. You can remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to use our Platform.  Sending a cookie to a user’s browser enables us to collect Non-Personal information about that user and keep a record of the user’s preferences when utilizing our services, both on an individual and aggregate basis. For example, we may use cookies to store the following information: session data, email address, username, and preferences. LawyerLetter may use both persistent and session cookies; persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your session and until you delete them, while session cookies expire when you close your browser.

Analytics Data: We may use third party analytics services to help analyze how users use the Platform. These analytics services use cookies to collect information such as how often users visit our website and we use the information to improve the Platform. The analytics services ability to use and share information collected by them is restricted by their terms of use and privacy policy, which you should refer to for more information about how these entities use this information.  If third party services collect information, they do so anonymously without identifying individual visitors.  However, we may link the information we record using tracking technology to Personal Information we collect.

Device Data: We use device data, which is information concerning a device you use to access, use, and/or interact with the Platform, such as operating system type and/or mobile device model, browser type, domain, and other system settings, the language your system uses and the country and time zone of your device, geo-location, unique device identifier and/or other device identifier, mobile phone carrier identification, and device software platform and firmware information.

Aggregate: We may collect non-identifying and statistical information about the use of our Platform, such as how many visitors visit a specific page, how long they stay on that page and which links, if any, they click on.  This information represents a generic overview of our users, including their collective habits. Information collected in the aggregate is not associated with you as an individual. We may share user information in the aggregate with third parties.

Other Tracking Technologies: We may supplement information you provide to us with information from other sources, such as information to validate and/or update your address and/or other demographic information. This information is used to maintain the accuracy of information on our Platform and for internal analysis.  We may also use clear gifs, pixel tags and web beacons, which are tiny graphic images placed on website pages and/or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed specific actions and are further used to track online movements of our users.  In contrast to cookies, which are stored on your computer’s hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages.  We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your Personal Information.

You may submit User Content (as defined in our Terms and Conditions) to the Platform, including certain information via online forms.

1.4 Information you send to other Users

This Privacy Policy only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to other parties using the Platform, or visit other websites linked through the Platform, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Since LawyerLetter does not control the privacy policies of third parties, or other individual’s actions, you are subject to the privacy policies of that third party or those individuals. We encourage you to be sure the recipients are authenticated to your satisfaction before you send them any documents or sensitive information.

4. California Privacy Rights

Effective January 1, 2020, the California law known as the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) allows, with some exceptions, California residents to request that a business that collects consumers’ personal information to give consumers access to the specific pieces and categories of personal information that the business has collected about the consumer, the categories of sources for that information, the business or commercial purposes for collecting the information, and the categories of third parties with which the information was shared. California residents also have the right to submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances. Consistent with the CCPA, if you choose to exercise your rights, we won’t charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information.

Notice to Business-to-Business Consumers: Many of the obligations imposed by the CCPA currently do not apply to personal information reflecting communications or transactions between the business and a California resident where the resident is acting on behalf of another business, e.g., a business-to-business transaction. If your personal information is being processed within this context, your rights under the CCPA are limited.

Your Rights Under California Law

The following are your rights under California law:

  • To request that the business disclose what personal information (about you) it collects, uses, discloses, and sells.
  • To request deletion of your personal information collected or maintained by the business. This right is limited, and we may not always honor your request, particularly when it is necessary to maintain your information for legal purposes or to complete the business we have with you.
  • To opt-out of the sale of your personal information by the business. A “sale” occurs when your personal information is exchanged with a, non-service provider, third party in exchange for valuable consideration. It is not a sale when you intentionally authorize us to disclose your personal information or interact with a third party. To exercise your right to opt-out, please contact us at [email protected]
  • To not receive discriminatory treatment by the business for exercising any of the privacy rights conferred under the CCPA.

Exercising Your Rights Under the CCPA

How to make a disclosure request: You may request these disclosures by contacting us at [email protected]. You have the right to make a free request two times in any 12-month period. We will make the disclosure within 45 days of receiving your request, unless we request an extension. In the event that we reasonably need a 45-day extension, we will notify you of the extension within the initial 45-day period.

Right of deletion: You have the right to request that we delete your personal information, subject to certain exceptions. After we receive and validate your request, we will delete your personal information, as well as direct our service providers to delete your personal information, unless an exception applies. Contact us at [email protected] to delete your data.

The CCPA permits using a designate an authorized agent to make a request on a consumer’s behalf. You may designate an agent by filling an agent-designation form. Both the designated agent and the consumer are subject to verification before accepting a consumer rights request.

All consumer rights requests are subject to verification by us. We verify requests by matching the information provided by the consumer to the personal information of the consumer already maintained by the business. In some instances, we may use your contact information to contact you in order to verify your identity.

Residents of the state of California have the right to request certain information from us with respect to the types of personal information we share with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, as well as the identities of the third parties we have shared such information with during the immediately preceding calendar year. To exercise your choices, please contact us at [email protected]
