Privacy Policy

1. Purpose And Nature Of Our Privacy Policy.  BookLawyer is committed to protecting the privacy of its users, and we have created this privacy policy to inform you of our information practices and our commitment to the privacy of your personally identifiable information.  The following statement discloses the information gathering and dissemination practices we use at www.booklawyer.com (Site).

2. Information We Collect And How We Use It.  Our goal is to provide you with an unmatched legal research experience that delivers the relevant information in the most efficient way possible.  To achieve this goal we sometimes collect information when you visit the Site.  BookLawyer collects certain information from and about its users in three ways: (1) from web server logs; (2) with cookies and a password hash that is securely stored on your computer/machine for user authentication purposes; and (3) directly from the user.  This information is not shared with third parties for marketing purposes and BookLawyer does not disclose to any third party any information about any user’s usage of the Site, except to enforce the terms of our Terms Of Use and Terms Of Service agreements, or as required by law.

(a) Personally Identifiable Information: BookLawyer does not automatically collect any personally identifiable information such as name, address, or email address when you visit the Site.  Personally identifiable information about visitors to the Site is collected only when voluntarily submitted.  By voluntarily submitting such personal information the user is consenting to receive occasional email messages from BookLawyer regarding new products, events, or promotions.  If at any time the user does not wish to receive such non-account-related email messages the user may unsubscribe from such email messages through the link provided in the email message.

(b) Web Server Logs.  When you visit the Site we may track non-personal information to administer the Site and analyze its usage.  Many websites automatically collect this non-personal information. Examples of such non-personal information we may collect include:  (1) your internet protocol address; (2) what kind of browser or computer you are using to access the Site; (3) the number of links you click within the Site; (4) the state or country from which you accessed the Site; (5) the date and time of your visit; (6) the name of your internet service provider; (7) the web page from which you linked to the Site; and (8) the pages you viewed on the Site.  If you are a subscriber to the Site we may also collect your email address and the date, time, documents accessed, and client identification you provided so we can provide your firm or organization’s account administrator with a report of such usage for internal billing and other records.

(c) Cookies.  The Site uses cookies—which are small bits of text that our servers place into a file on your computer’s hard drive.  Cookies are used to track and save your account and log in information, to authenticate your subscription status, and more generally to collect anonymous traffic data on the Site.  You may reject or disable cookies by changing your browser settings, but this will disable some of the functionality of the Site.  You must accept/enable and maintain cookies to subscribe for a trial period or a regular subscription period that permits access to the BookLawyer Memos on the Site.

(d) Password Hash. When you check the “Remember Me” checkbox in the Login form, the Site uses a password hash that is securely stored on your computer/machine to match your computer/machine with your registered email address for user authentication purposes.

(e) Contact And Financial Information.  Our registration forms on the Site require (1) contact information such as name, address, email address, and telephone number and (2) financial information, including account or credit card numbers. We use contact information to occasionally send users information about BookLawyer and to contact them when necessary.  We use financial information to bill subscribers.

3. How We Protect Your Information.  BookLawyer uses technical security measures to help prevent the loss, misuse, or alteration of information within our control.  For example, when we ask subscribers to provide financial information such as a credit card number, that data is protected using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology.

4. Who Has Access To The Information. BookLawyer will only share your personally identifiable information in the following ways:  (1) as required by law, in a matter of public safety or policy, or as required in connection with the transfer of other business assets.  In compliance with United States law, BookLawyer does not share such information with any unaffiliated third parties, unless expressly requested by you; (2) with agents and contractors that use such information on BookLawyer’s behalf or in connection with their relationship with BookLawyer.  For example, BookLawyer uses a third party to accept your online credit card and other payments as safely and easily as possible.  Thus, the credit card processor will have access to your financial information, including your credit card or other account information necessary to accept such payments.

5. Links To Other Companies’ Sites.  The Site contains links to sites maintained by companies that are not affiliated with BookLawyer.  BookLawyer is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those sites, and we encourage you to use caution when visiting them.  For example, we recommend that you read the privacy policy posted on each site.

6. Privacy Policy Changes.  If our information practices change in a significant way we will post the changes here.

7. Questions Regarding Our Information Practices.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding our information practices please send an email message to privacy@booklawyer.com.
