The Information That We Collect
Ideal Legal Group collects two types of information about users of our Site:
(1) Personally identifiable information: In general, you do not have to provide us with your personally identifiable information to use this Site. However, certain services to which you may subscribe through this Site (e.g., “legal updates” email messages) may require you to provide personally identifiable information, such as your name, physical address, and email address. We use such personally identifiable information to respond to your inquiries and to send you newsletters or publications that you request. You may also receive other mailings relating to Ideal Legal Group seminars or events that we think may be of interest to you. If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive mailings from us, please refer to the paragraph below headed “Changing or Deleting Personal Information.”
If you contact us by email through the Site, we may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and we reserve the right to use your email address, and any information that you provide to us in your message, to respond thereto. In addition, on rare occasions, we may send by email important administrative information regarding the Site or services to users who have provided us with their email addresses; because this information may be important to your use of the Site, it is not possible to “opt out” of receiving these emails.
The Site is not directed to children under thirteen (13) years of age, and Ideal Legal Group does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from such children. If you are younger than thirteen, please do not provide any personally identifiable information while using the Site.
How We Use the Information We Gather
Generally, we will not disclose personally identifiable information that we collect through your use of the Site to unaffiliated third parties. We reserve the right, however, to provide such information to our employees, contractors, agents, and designees to the extent necessary to enable them to perform certain Site-related services (e.g., web hosting, improve Site-related services and features, or maintenance services) on our behalf. We also reserve the right to disclose such information to any third party if we believe that we are required to do so for any or all of the following reasons: (i) by law; (ii) to comply with legal processes or governmental requests; (iii) to prevent, investigate, detect, or prosecute criminal offenses or attacks on the technical integrity of the Site or our network; and/or (iv) to protect the rights, property, or safety of Ideal Legal Group and its affiliates, their partners, and employees, the users of the Site, or the public.
Special Notification for Our Individual California Clients
We do not disclose our clients’ personal information to unaffiliated third parties for purposes of their direct marketing. However, we may provide our clients’ personal information to other affiliated entities of Ideal Legal Group, such as our partner law offices, consistent with our goal of providing the highest level of service to our clients. This information may be used to send you legal updates, seminar invitations, and other information about the services offered by our other entities. Because separate legal entities are considered “third parties” for purposes of California Civil Code Section 1798.83, we are providing the following information for individual California clients who have given us their personal information pursuant to an established legal services relationship that is primarily for personal, family, or household purposes (“Individual California Clients”).
Effective January 1, 2008, Individual California Clients may request information about our disclosures of certain categories of personally identifiable information to third parties (i.e., other legal entities of Ideal Legal Group) for their direct marketing purposes. Such requests must be submitted to us either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at the following address:
Ideal Legal Group
One West Hellman Avenue
Alhambra, CA 91030
Within thirty (30) days of receiving such a request, we will provide a list of the categories of personal information disclosed to separate legal entities for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of these entities. This request may be made no more than once per calendar year. We reserve our right not to respond to requests submitted other than to the email or mailing addresses specified in this paragraph.
Changing or Deleting Personal Information
If you would like to change your personal information, or if you no longer wish to receive materials from us or want your personal information removed from Ideal Legal Group’s database, please contact us at email@example.com. Alternatively, when you receive materials from us by email or other communications you can make use of the “opt out” provision in such communications so that we know that you no longer wish to receive such materials from us.
Ideal Legal Group seeks to adopt commercially reasonable security measures consistent with legal industry practice to assist in protecting against the loss, misuse, and alteration of personally identifiable information which is under our control. Unfortunately, no security system, or system of transmitting data over the Internet, can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result of the foregoing, while we undertake commercially reasonable efforts to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee the security of our servers, the means by which information is transmitted between your computer and Ideal Legal Group ‘s computers, or any information provided to us or to any third party through or in connection with the Site. You provide all such information entirely at your own risk.
Ideal Legal Group reserves the right to transfer any and all information that we collect from users, or that we otherwise collect in connection with the Site, including, without limitation, to unaffiliated third parties or third parties, in the event of a sale or transfer of assets or of any portion of our business.
