Your Privacy is Important to Us
At Legal Access and LegalEASE, we understand that your privacy is important. Therefore, to better protect your privacy, we have created this Privacy Statement to explain our online information practices to assist you during the course of your visit and interaction with our websites.
This Privacy Statement applies to all the online services and websites offered by LegalEASE LLC or its subsidiaries or affiliated companies (collectively, LegalEASE' "services"). Furthermore, this statement applies to all information collected from or submitted to authorized LegalEASE websites.
Our websites contain links to other websites operated by third parties which may or may not be affiliated with LegalEASE. LegalEASE is not responsible for the privacy practices or policies of such third-party websites and this Statement does not apply to those websites.
If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please feel free to e-mail us or write to us at Privacy Issues, c/o LegalEASE LLC, 5151 San Felipe St., Suite 2300, Houston, TX, 77056 USA.
APPLICATION OF THIS STATEMENT
This Statement applies only to the information collected by LegalEASE from the users of our websites. It does not apply to information collected by LegalEASE in any other way, including offline.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT and HOW WE USE IT
LegalEASE offers online services that do not require you to register for an account or provide any personal information to us, for example, LegalEASE Member Guides. To provide our full range of online services, we may collect the following types of information:
Log Information: When you use LegalEASE' Services, our servers automatically record and log information that your browser sends whenever you visit the website. These server logs may include your web request, Internet Protocol address, the name of your Internet Service Provider, browser type, browser language, the state or country from which you accessed our website, the webpage you linked to our website from, the number of links you click within the website, the pages you viewed on the website, and the date and time of your request.
User Communications: When you send email or other communication to LegalEASE via our website, we may retain those communications in order to process your inquiries, respond to your requests and improve our services as appropriate.
Information You Provide: In a few areas on our websites, we ask you to provide information that will enable us to verify whether you are entitled to access and use certain information, materials and services available from our website, or to enable us to enhance your site visit, to assist you with member service, technical support issues, follow up with you after your visit, or to otherwise support your relationship with LegalEASE. Participation in those areas of our websites that require you to provide your personal information before proceeding are completely optional. However, declining to participate may mean that you will not be able to access and use certain information, materials, and services.
Other Websites: This Privacy Statement applies to web sites and services that are owned and operated by LegalEASE. We do not exercise control over the sites displayed as search results or links from within our various services. These other sites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer.
Our websites do not automatically collect personally identifiable information from visitors. The IP address of the visitor is recorded in web server logs and ingested into a SIEM to search for potential attacks and vulnerabilities. For example, when a member visits our website, we can tell both the IP Address and, by extension, the Internet Service Provider the member is using, but not the names, addresses or other personally identifiable information that would allow us to accurately identify them. With that understanding, the information that is collected is used only for internal purposes that include but are not limited to:
- Providing Services to our Members;
- Auditing, research, and analysis used to maintain, protect and improve our services;
- Ensuring the technical functioning of our online services and networks; and
- Development of new services.
LegalEASE only processes the information collected through the various means listed above for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement and/or any applicable Privacy Notice issued by LegalEASE.
