The information we collect
This site collects information about users who choose to register with the site, post comments, or participate in the forums. This information includes users’ email address, name, website, and biography. It is stored according to industry standards for security.
It also collects anonymous information about all users who visit this site, which is stored in the aggregate and is not personally identifying.
Why we collect it
Our intention is always to gather only the information needed to serve users better and never to gather information without their knowledge. We aim to provide users with a level of privacy they would reasonably expect in the normal “offline” world.
Anonymous information about our users as a group is collected mostly through standard analysis of our Web-server log files. We use this information to closely monitor which areas of the site are used most and to determine which areas we need to focus on improving. This information is used exclusively by Open Law Lab in aggregate form so that we may continue to improve the value of the services and information on the Web site for our members as a whole.
Third-party use of this information
Open Law Lab may use the information its users provide about themselves to fulfill their requests for products, programs and services, and to respond to their inquiries about offerings. We will never use this information to sell or offer third parties’ products to users.
We sometimes use the information to communicate with users, such as to notify them when we make changes to subscriber agreements, to fulfill a request by them for an online newsletter, or to contact them about their account with us.
We will disclose the information we maintain when required to do so by law, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena. We also may disclose such information in response to a law enforcement agency’s request.
Open Law Lab does not request any sensitive information from its users. If users choose to provide any sensitive information in comments, profiles, or forum entries, they do so at their own risk. Open Law Lab will not sell any data that its users provide.
Third Party Advertising
Open Law Lab does not serve any advertisements, and does not contract with third parties to serve any advertisements.
