If LawPracticeSale offers and you access our Q&A Service, LawPracticeSale may collect and store your name, email address and information about the relevant jurisdiction and your legal matter or question for quality assurance purposes and to connect you with a professional (but LawPracticeSale does not monitor or access any communications between you and a professional that occurs outside of our Services). LawPracticeSale may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your Postal Code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites.

LawPracticeSale may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you. In cases where you request LawPracticeSale to do so, LawPracticeSale will share your personal information with trusted business partners so that they can offer you products or services that you’ve expressed interest in. In those cases, your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) is not transferred to the third party without your express consent. Notwithstanding the language in this paragraph, LawPracticeSale may sell, rent or lease our customer list to attorney Robert V. Schaller (and any law firm with which he is associated), which includes your unique personally identifiable information (e-mail, name, address, telephone number) so that you can receive communications, solicitations, or legal advertising material from Robert V.

In addition, LawPracticeSale may share data with vendors or processors to help LawPracticeSale perform statistical analysis, send you email or postal mail, perform tasks required to complete a purchase transaction, provide customer support, or provide other types of customer relationship management and fulfilment. LawPracticeSale may also share information on your use of our Site, such as pages visited, links clicked, non-sensitive text entered, and mouse movements, with third party providers of web and application analytic services in order to enable LawPracticeSale to understand site usage, detect fraud and potential threats and improve its Services. All such third parties are prohibited from using your personal information except to provide these Services, and they are obligated to maintain the confidentiality of your information, although in some cases those third parties are allowed to use aggregated and de-identified data for the improvement of their own services.
LawPracticeSale may use tracking pixels and other technology to track the pages our customers visit within our websites. This data is used to understand our customers’ needs, how customers use our Services, improve our Services and deliver customized content and recommendations to users whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. Please note that any “do not track” signals sent by your web browser or other mechanism may have no effect on the collection of personally identifiable information by LawPracticeSale. LawPracticeSale may use third parties such as Google Analytics for data collection and analytics to collect, process and store your site usage and browser information on our behalf when you use our Services. These parties are limited to using personal information to provide support for our Services.
LawPracticeSale may use tracking to create remarketing audiences of users based on user behavior and visits to our website. LawPracticeSale may also target these users with custom ads based on affinities/interests, geographic and demographic signals. Users can opt out of these advertising features by visiting Facebook’s ad page, Google’s opt-out page or resources like the NAI consumer opt-out page.

LawPracticeSale shares customer information with third parties to perform services (advertising) on our behalf.
Information about our customers, including personal information, may be disclosed and transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of LawPracticeSale’s business assets. In such an event, you may not have the right to opt out of any such transfer.
3. Communications with Attorneys & Other Professionals
If LawPracticeSale offers and you access our Q&A Service, LawPracticeSale may collect and store your name, email address and information about the relevant jurisdiction and your matter or question for quality assurance purposes and to connect you with a professional (but LawPracticeSale does not monitor or access any communications between you and a professional that occur outside of our Services).
LawPracticeSale does not interfere with or control the content of advice from attorneys and other professionals to clients in any way. Although LawPracticeSale believes such communications may be subject to a legal privilege, whether any particular communication is privileged is a fact-specific analysis and depends on the laws of the relevant jurisdiction. As a result, if you choose to communicate with professionals, please note that, depending on the laws in the applicable jurisdiction, any such communications between you and professionals may not necessarily be protected by a privilege doctrine.

6. For California Residents
Effective January 1, 2020, the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) afforded California residents (i) the right to request disclosure of data collection and sales practices in connection with the requesting consumer; (ii) the right to have the requesting consumer’s information deleted, subject to certain exceptions; (iii) the right to request that their personal information not be sold to third parties, if applicable; and (iv) the right not to be discriminated against because they exercised any of the new rights.
California residents may submit a personal information or erasure request via email to schaller @lexlawlawyers.com. LawPracticeSale will need to collect information from the requesting party to verify their identity, and will respond within 45 days of receiving a personal information request (subject to an additional 45-day extension in certain circumstances).
Please be aware that such a request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of your content or information and that there may be circumstances in which the law does not require or allow removal even if requested. For example, if your personal information is contained in a document created by a LawPracticeSale user, only that user can delete that document.
