MyBDLaws respects the privacy and security of its users. Our goal is to provide you with a personalized Internet experience that delivers the information, resources, and services that are most relevant and helpful to you. In order to achieve this goal, we sometimes collect information during your visits to understand what differentiates you from each of our millions of other users. In order to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy, we have prepared this statement disclosing the privacy practices for the entire MyBDLaws site. Additional terms and conditions, if any, regarding the collection and use of your information may also be provided to you before you sign up for a particular service. Here, you will learn what personally identifiable information of yours is collected, how and when we might use your information, how we protect your information, who has access to your information, and how you can correct any inaccuracies in the information. You should remember that whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information online, such as on message boards, through e-mail, discussion groups, or in chat areas, your information can be collected and used by others. Although MyBDLaws tries to protect your personal information, MyBDLaws cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the secrecy of any passwords you set up and/or any account information. MyBDLaws collects certain information from and about its users directly from the user. When you sign up for a service, such as the Legal News, free Web Sites, or free e-mail services, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, and some other personal information. The more accurate information you volunteer, the better we are able to customize your MyBDLaws experience. We use information in different ways, depending on the type of information. This information is used for purposes such as personalization and verification. The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. MyBDLaws does not make personal information available to any third parties without your permission. Any user statistics that we may provide to prospective advertisers or partners regarding your MyBDLaws usage are provided in the aggregate only and do not include any personally identifiable information about any individual user. Your access to some services and content is password protected. We recommend that you do not divulge your password to anyone. MyBDLaws will never ask you for your password in an unsolicited phone call or in an unsolicited email. You should not disclose your user name and password to others. In addition, if applicable, you should remember to sign out of your MyBDLaws account or service at the end of each session. You may also wish to close your browser window when you have finished your work. This is to ensure that others cannot access your personal information and correspondence if you share a computer with someone else or are using a computer in a public place like a library or Internet cafe. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, MyBDLaws cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or to or from our online products or services. You transmit all such information at your own risk. However, once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Except as described below, MyBDLaws will not willfully disclose any individually identifiable information about its users to any third party without first receiving that user's permission. MyBDLaws may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights or property of MyBDLaws. When you are at the MyBDLaws site and asked for personal information, you share that information with MyBDLaws alone, unless the service is offered in conjunction with another party. For example, some MyBDLaws services, such as MyBDLaws Fax, are offered in conjunction with another company. In order to provide such co-branded services to you, it is necessary for us to share your personal information with the company offering the co-branded service. If you do not want your data to be shared, you can choose not to allow the transfer of data by not using that particular service. If you choose to share your data with a provider of a co-branded service, you should understand that those providers may have separate privacy and data collection practices. MyBDLaws has no control over and accepts no liability for these independent practices. Each provider should provide more information regarding its privacy and/or use policies.
