STATEMENT OF ONLINE PRIVACY PRACTICES
Your privacy is important to us and we go to great lengths to protect it. This Privacy Statement applies to the online collection of personal information via this website. This Statement does not apply to information collected in any other way, including offline. This website may contain links to sites maintained by others. This Privacy Statement does not reflect the privacy practices of those sites.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND HOW DO WE USE IT?
We collect information about our users in three ways: directly from the user, from our web server logs, and through cookies. We use the information primarily to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. We don’t share any of the information you provide with others, unless we say so in this Privacy Statement, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
When you submit a contact form via our site, we ask you to provide some personal information, for example, your name, zip code, phone number, email address, and information about your situation. The information we collect through the submission forms will be passed on to lawyer(s) and law firm(s) that pay us to jointly advertise their services via this website. Information that you provide to us through the submission form will be used so that an attorney can respond to your inquiry. We may also use information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future. If you do not wish to receive such communications, you may opt out as described below.
Please do not submit any confidential, proprietary or sensitive personally identifiable information (e.g. Social Security number; date of birth; drivers license number; or credit card, bank account or other financial information) (collectively, “Sensitive Information”). If you submit any Sensitive Information, you do so at your own risk and we will not be liable to you or responsible for consequences of your submission.

HOW DO WE PROTECT THE PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT WE COLLECT?
We have implemented certain appropriate security measures to help protect your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. For example, some of our websites are protected with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology. Also, we store the information about you in a data center with restricted access and appropriate monitoring, and we use a variety of technical security measures to secure your data. In addition, we use intrusion detection and virus protection software. However, please note that we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.
Also, please note that we may store and process your personal information in systems located outside of your home country. However, regardless of where storage and processing may occur, we take appropriate steps to ensure that your information is protected, consistent with the principles set forth under this statement.

- To agents, vendors and/or contractors who may use it on our behalf or in connection with their relationship with us.
- As required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, as needed in connection with the transfer of our business assets (for example, if we are acquired by another company or if we are liquidated during bankruptcy proceedings), or if we believe in good faith that sharing the data is necessary to protect our rights or property.
We also rely on some of our affiliates for support of the products and services we offer, and we may share some of our back-office functions with other Thomson Reuters companies. Our affiliates are all required to preserve the confidentiality of any personal information they may access. We may also use statistics regarding usage for product development purposes, but we only use those statistics in the aggregate and they don’t include any personally identifiable information about individual users.
