Privacy Policy

This Privacy and Security Policy (“Privacy Policy”) below are applicable to the website 1800TheLAW2.com, a domain (“Site”) produced and maintained by Legal Rights Defenders, Inc. dba Walker & Walker Attorney Network and 1-800-THE-LAW2 (referred to as “Legal Rights Defenders” or “we”, “us”, or “our”). We have established this Privacy Policy to let you know the kinds of personal information we may gather during your visit to the Website, why we gather your information, what we use your personal information for, when we might disclose your personal information, and how you can manage your personal information.

Please be advised that the practices described in this Privacy Policy apply only to information gathered through the Site and, where applicable, through our Customer Service Department in connection with the Site. This Privacy Policy does not necessarily reflect our practices with respect to information gathered through other websites that we operate or through other off-line means.

BY VISITING THE SITE, YOU ARE ACCEPTING, WITHOUT MODIFICATION, THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO ANY PORTION OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THEN EXIT THE SITE IMMEDIATELY AND DO NOT RETURN. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO CHANGE, MODIFY, ADD, OR DELETE THE TERMS OF OUR PRIVACY POLICY FROM TIME TO TIME WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE. YOUR CONTINUED USE OF THE SITE FOLLOWING THE POSTING OF CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY MEAN YOU AGREE TO THE NEW TERMS. If we make material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the changes to this Privacy Policy on this page and will indicate at the top of this page the date these terms were last revised. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Policy retroactively, we will provide you with notice of the modifications or amendments.

If you have any questions about this Privacy Policy or don’t see your concerns addressed here, you should contact us by email at: privacy@walkeradvertising.com.

1. GENERALLY, WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED AND STORED?
One of the basic principles we’ve tried to follow in designing the Site is that we ask for only the information we need to provide the service you’ve requested. As a result, the information we collect and store depends almost entirely on how you choose to make use of the Site and its related services.

2. PERSONAL INFORMATION
We collect and store information that you enter into the Site or that you provide through our Customer Service Department. For example, when you provide information about your accident to us or download information that requires submission of a form, we collect and store some or all of the following information that you provide, for example: name, address, email address, telephone number and a description of your case. This information is used to provide the services that you have requested, and to provide customer service. Information not required to provide the services that you have requested is always optional. Personal Information may also be collected in certain portions of the Site in which you specifically and knowingly provide such information to us or to operators of subnetworks within the Site (“Subnetwork Operators”), suggestions, or customer service requests. Some of this information also may be used to contact you about new features, new services, and special offers unless you have elected to not receive such promotional communications in connection with the Site.

3. TRANSFER OF EMAIL ADDRESSES
We will not give, sell, or otherwise transfer email addresses maintained by the Site to any other party for the purposes of initiating, or enabling others to initiate, electronic mail messages to you.

4. ANONYMOUS INFORMATION
Through your use of the Site, we may also gather certain information that does not identify you individually (“Anonymous Information”). Generally, this information is collected through “traffic data”. We collect and store certain other information automatically whenever you interact with the Site. For example, we collect your IP address, browser information and reference site domain name every time you visit the Site. We also collect information regarding customer-traffic patterns and site usage. This information is used to analyze and improve the Site and to provide our customers with a fulfilling experience.

5. COOKIES AND SPYWARE
We never use or install spyware on your computer, nor do we use spyware to retrieve information from your computer. Like many websites, we use “cookies”, which are files stored on your computer’s hard drive by your browser. Cookies help us to identify users and to optimize their experience. Cookies also allow us to hold selections in a “shopping cart” when a user leaves the Site without checking out and send reminder emails about your requests and other opportunities. Most browsers accept cookies automatically but allow you to disable them. We recommend that you leave cookies “turned on” so that we can offer you a better user experience on the Site. You may occasionally get Cookies from companies advertising on our behalf. We do not control these Cookies, and these Cookies are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

We also may collect and store information about you that we receive from other sources, to enable us to update and correct the information contained in our database and to provide information about our service, recommendations, and special offers that we think will interest you and, if you have agreed to receive email from us, send you reminders about offers and other helpful information.

6. REGULAR CORRESPONDENCE
After you submit a web form, we may use the email address and zip codes of all users who subscribe to any of our newsletters or other regular correspondence. Except to our third-party agents (as described below), this information is not shared with any third parties. Anyone who no longer wishes to receive this newsletter or other regular correspondence can, at any time, follow the “Unsubscribe” instructions located within each newsletter.

7. KIDS AND PRIVACY
We do not knowingly collect any personal information from anyone who we know to be under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, you should use the Site only under the immediate supervision of a parent or guardian and should not submit any personal information to us. Our Website is not intentionally targeted to children under the age of 18. IF YOU ARE UNDER 18, THEN IMMEDIATELY EXIT THE SITE UNLESS YOU ARE DIRECTLY SUPERVISED BY A PARENT OR OTHER LEGAL GUARDIAN.

8. HOW DO WE USE YOUR INFORMATION?
Except as disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we do not use or disclose information about your individual visits to the Site or your Personal Information collected online to any companies not affiliated with us. If we propose to permit any use of your Personal Information, you will be provided an opportunity to decline such contact.

8.1 Customer Service and Feedback
We may use your Personal Information to provide services available through the Site, provide customer service, track your compliance with the Site’s rules and regulations, or for editorial and feedback purposes (to the extent that is explained when you provide the information).

In the event we plan to publicly post any of your Personal Information on the Site (as, for instance, a letter), you will be provided prior notification of such posting and given the option to decline same.

8.2 Use of Anonymous Information
We use Anonymous Information to help us determine how people use parts of the Site and who our readers are so we can improve our Website and ensure that it is as appealing as we can make it for as many people as possible. We also use Anonymous Information to provide statistical “ratings” information in aggregated form to our partners and other third parties about how our users collectively use the 1800thelaw2.com website. We may also use or share Anonymous Information (or other information, other than Personal Information) in any other manner that we deem appropriate or necessary.

8.3 Third-Party Agents
We occasionally have third-party agents, subsidiaries, affiliates and partners that perform functions on our behalf, such as marketing, computer programming, analytics, customer service, fraud protection, etc. These entities have access to the Personal Information needed to perform their functions and will be contractually obligated to maintain the confidentiality and security of that Personal Information. They are restricted from using, selling, distributing or altering this data in any way other than to provide the requested services to the Site.

8.4 Subnetwork Operators
Subnetwork Operators will have access to your user name, location, first and last name. Subnetwork Operators will be subject to the restrictions included in this privacy policy and may not use this information collected by the Subnetwork Operator in any way that would not have been permitted to us under this privacy policy.

8.5 Transactional Partners
We may share non-personal information with our partners and others from time to time. Examples of such non-personal information include the number of users who visited the Site during a specific time period or purchased a specific product through the Site. This information generally is shared in an aggregated form.

8.6 Emergency Situations
We may also use or disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to applicable law or comply with legal process served on us or the Site; (b) protect and defend the our rights or property, the Site or our users, and (c) act under emergency circumstances to protect the personal safety of us, our affiliates, agents, or the users of the Site or the public.

9. WHAT STEPS ARE TAKEN TO KEEP PERSONAL INFORMATION SECURE?
Personal Information collected by the Site is stored in secure operating environments that are not available to the public. In certain instances, such as in the case of information about your accident, the Personal Information is either encrypted before you conduct your transaction or you are asked not to supply any confidential information about your case. Only those employees who need access to your Personal Information to do their jobs are allowed access. Any employee who violates our privacy and/or security policies is subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination and civil and/or criminal prosecution.

While we try our best to safeguard your Personal Information once we receive it, you understand and agree that no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. While we have security measures in place to prevent the loss, misuse, destruction and alteration of the information that you provide us or we obtain from you. We will have no liability to you or to any third party arising out of any such loss, misuse, destruction, or alternation.

10. CONTESTS AND SWEEPSTAKES
When we run a contest or sweepstakes relating to the Site, it will be accompanied by a set of rules. The rules for each contest/sweepstakes will specify how the information gathered from you for entry will be used and disclosed, if it is different than as described in this Privacy Policy. Personal Information will be collected only if you voluntarily submit it to our sponsors or us.

11. PUBLIC AREAS, CHAT ROOMS AND NEWSGROUPS
Please remember that any information you share in public areas, such as message boards, blogs, or feedback sections, becomes public, and therefore this Privacy Policy does not apply to any information you choose to make public. Use common sense about what you disclose and do not post any Personal Information that you expect to keep private.

12. THIRD-PARTY SITES
Please note that this site may maintain links to other web sites. This Privacy Policy only applies to the 1800TheLAW2.com web site and not to any other web sites that you may access from 1800TheLAW2.com, each of which may have privacy policies that are materially distinct from this Privacy Policy. If you choose to visit other web sites, we are not responsible for the Privacy Practices or content of those other web sites, and it is your responsibility to review the Privacy Policies at those web sites to confirm that you understand and agree with their policies.
