Effective as of October 28, 2020.
We collect two types of information from Site visitors: (1) Personal Information; and (2) Non-Personal Information. Specific information regarding our data collection is detailed below.
“Personal Information” refers to information that allows others to identify or contact you specifically. We may collect various forms of Personal Information, including the following:
For instance, if you agree to receive newsletters and other information from us, we may collect your email address. We may also pair your email address with your address and any other information you provide to determine whether you may be eligible to receive services from providers in your state or local community, and to ensure the information we provide will be relevant to you.
Although you are under no obligation to provide the information requested, if you decline to do so, we may be unable to provide you with information about certain services. If you do not want us to collect your Personal Information, please do not provide it to us.
Unlike personal information, “Non-Personal Information” does NOT identify you personally. Non-personal information can be technical or demographic information, such as your age, gender, zip code or other geolocation data, or interests. Below are some examples of the Non-Personal Information that we collect via the Site and descriptions of how this information may be used:
We may collect the above Non-Personal Information from all visitors to our Site. If you do not want us to have access to your Non-Personal Information, please do not visit our Site.
We use Personal Information that is collected on the Site for the following primary purposes:
We may use your Personal Information in other ways as well to further the overall purpose of the Site’s operation. By providing your Personal Information, you are consenting to our use of it.
We use your Non-Personal Information as described above and in other ways permitted by applicable laws, including combining Personal Information with Non-Personal Information.
For example, we may use Non-Personal Information and usage data to: (i) create marketing analyses and reports showing how our users collectively interact with our services; (ii) develop reports that help us and other strategic third parties in determining the interests of Site users; or (iii) improve our program and service offerings. Such reports will be shared with the Legal Services Corporation and third parties assisting our administration of this Site and its services. Please note that while Personal Information may inform the development of any such reports, reports will not contain your Personal Information.
Examples of ways in which we may share or disclose your Personal Information include the following:
Similar to our use of Personal Information, we share Non-Personal Information collected through Site in the manner disclosed above. We may share this Non-Personal Information with third parties helping to administer the Site or our services.
The Site does not target children under the age of 13 or knowingly collect Personal Information from such individuals. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to remove such information.
You may opt-out of receiving promotional messages from us or strategic third parties at any time. For communications through subscription services (e-mail alerts, text alerts, etc.), you can opt-out through the means provided by that service. We will process your unsubscribe as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few additional messages until the unsubscribe is processed. Please also note that unsubscribing from promotional e-mails will not opt you out of transactional communications or communications we are required to send.
If you respond to any interactive advertisement or offer by a third party (whether via e-mail, message, or otherwise), or if you request information about a product, program or service offered by a third party, your Personal Information will be disclosed to such third party. We cannot control, nor do we make any representations about, the collection or use of your information by such third parties. If you choose to register for or subscribe to any such third party product or service, any further correspondence between you and such third party including, without limitation, any resulting contractual agreements, are solely between you and the third party. We are not responsible for upholding any applicable terms, conditions, representations, or warranties made by the advertiser/third party in connection therewith and shall otherwise have no liability associated with your interaction with such third party.
If you would like access to any information we may have collected about you, or if you have any concerns regarding the accuracy of such information, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we learn of a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. Specifically, we may post a notice on our Site if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to the e-mail address you have provided, or a physical letter to the home address you have provided. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. By using this Site or providing Personal Information to us, you agree to such communications regarding any security, privacy, or administrative issues specific to your use of the Site. However, nothing about this policy or your use of the Site vests LSC with an obligation to notify you of a breach.
Please note that our Site does not support “Do Not Track” browser settings and does not currently participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your Personal or Non-Personal Information.
In the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign the Personal and Non-Personal Information collected via the Site to another party.
