LAW BULLETIN MEDIA’S PRIVACY POLICY

Law Bulletin Media (”Law Bulletin”) adopted this privacy policy in recognition of the importance of protecting the privacy of your personally identifiable information. Your privacy is important to Law Bulletin. Law Bulletin’s intent is to balance its legitimate business interest in collecting and using personally identifiable information and your reasonable expectations of privacy. This Privacy Policy applies only to information collected by or through Law Bulletin’s websites and does not apply to information collected or used by Law Bulletin through other means.

1. SUBMISSION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Law Bulletin asks you to provide personally identifiable information, which is any information that can be used to identify a specific individual, in order to enhance your experience on Law Bulletin’s websites and improve Law Bulletin’s ability to serve you. In order to become a registered user, you must submit information including your name and e-email address. In addition, Law Bulletin asks you to submit information including your year of birth, gender, preferences, and information regarding your job and areas of interest in order to better serve you. Law Bulletin may at times also ask for other information, including, for example, when you submit comments or respond to surveys being conducted on its websites. Law Bulletin also may collect information when you purchase products or services from Law Bulletin offline, but that information is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

2. USE OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

Law Bulletin’s intent in collecting personally identifiable information is to provide users with an improved experience on its websites. This may include interactive communications, such as contacting you for a survey. In addition, Law Bulletin may use this information to: (1) contact you with legal notices, (2) advise you of any material changes or additional to Law Bulletin’s User Agreement or this Privacy Policy, and (3) advise you of any changes in your status as a registered user.

Law Bulletin may conduct research based on its users’ demographics, interests, and behavior based on the information provided to Law Bulletin during user registration, as well as on order forms, during promotions, through surveys, and from its server log files. This information is used to better serve its users. Aggregated information, which is statistical information that may be compiled from personally identifiable information but which is not personally identifiable itself, may be shared with advertisers or other businesses. Under a confidentiality agreement, Law Bulletin also may share information with third parties in service of Law Bulletin.

Unless Law Bulletin provides specific notice prior to collecting particular information (such as, for example, prior to a survey), Law Bulletin will not provide users’ personally identifiable information to any third party, except that it may provide or publish information in the aggregate.

Law Bulletin also reserves the right to send you offers about its services and those of its affiliates. If you do not wish to receive these offers, please contact info@chicagolawyermagazine.com to request removal from this list.

If you wish to unregister from Law Bulletin’s sites, please contact info@chicagolawyermagazine.com and ask to have your registration deleted. Once your account has been deleted, you will no longer be able to submit comments and/or other material to Law Bulletin’s websites. You may re-register at any time, unless your account has been terminated by Law Bulletin.

3. APPLICABILITY OF Law Bulletin’S PRIVACY POLICY

Law Bulletin’s advertisers or other websites that have links on Law Bulletin’s websites may also collect personally identifiable information directly from you. This Privacy Policy does not cover the actions of those advertisers or linked websites. Please visit those advertisers or websites to view their privacy policies.

4. PRIVACY WITH RESPECT TO VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSURES

If you voluntarily disclose personal information in comments and/or other materials submitted to Law Bulletin for use on its websites, such information may be collected by other viewers and may result in unsolicited messages from others.

5. DISCLOSURE IN SPECIAL CASES

As stated previously, Law Bulletin will not—without specific notification—as a rule disclose personal information submitted to Law Bulletin to third parties. However, Law Bulletin may disclose such information when required by law, subpoena or order issued by a court or governmental body, or when Law Bulletin has reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be violating Law Bulletin’s User Agreement or may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Law Bulletin’s rights or property, other Law Bulletin users, or anyone else who may be harmed.

6. DATA SECURITY

Law Bulletin has physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to protect the information collected online. However, no security system is impenetrable. Law Bulletin cannot guarantee the security of its database, nor can it guarantee that information will not be intercepted after being transmitted from you to Law Bulletin over the internet.

7. COLLECTION OF INFORMATION BY Law Bulletin SERVERS

Law Bulletin’s web servers automatically collect certain personally identifiable information, such as which pages each user visits and the domain names of visitors. This information is used for a number of purposes internally and may also be provided to advertisers on an aggregated, anonymous basis.

Law Bulletin also places a “cookie” on the browsers of computers of users of its websites to store and track information. A “cookie” is a data file that can be used to tell when your computer has visited a certain website. The information may be used for editorial purposes, for measuring traffic patterns, and to make sure that you do not have to reenter your password multiple times during a visit. Advertisers on Law Bulletin’s website also may have their own cookies.

Any user may opt-out of cookies (including but not limited to Law Bulletin’s cookies) by changing a setting on your browser. Opting out of cookies by changing this setting will disable all cookies and may cause problems with some websites.

8. INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 18

Children under the age of 13 should not send any information to Law Bulletin, including but not limited to names, addresses, or email addresses. Law Bulletin does not knowingly collect information from children under 13. If Law Bulletin learns that it has collected any personal information from a child under the age of 13, it will delete that information from its database as soon as possible.

Teen-agers who are at least 13 years of age may submit personal information only with the permission of, and under the supervision of, a parent or legal guardian. If you are a parent or legal guardian agreeing to Law Bulletin’s User Agreement for the benefit of a teen-ager between the ages of 13 and 18, you are fully responsible for any comments and/or other submissions by the teen-ager and any legal liability that the teen-ager may incur.

9. RIGHT TO ALTER POLICY

Because Internet technology is changing constantly, Law Bulletin reserves the right to change its Privacy Policy, as well as its User Agreement, at any time. If Law Bulletin make revisions to the way it collects or uses personal data, Law Bulletin may provide notice of those changes by taking action as the Law Bulletin deems appropriate under the circumstances, including without limitation, posting the revised draft of this Privacy Policy on its website. Any changes will apply as soon as notice is posted. Your continued use of Law Bulletin’s websites indicates your acceptance of those changes.
