This Privacy Policy (and included Cookie Notice) describes the data practices of Write.law LLC (“Write.law,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) for information that we collect and use about you when you access or use the Write.law Online website (https://learn.write.law) or other services that link to or otherwise present this Privacy Policy. We refer to these products and services collectively as the “Services,” “Site,” “Website,” or “Write.law Online.”

PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY CAREFULLY TO UNDERSTAND HOW WE HANDLE YOUR INFORMATION. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SERVICES.

This Privacy Policy contains the following sections:

Information We Collect

When we provide the Services to you, we get information about you through the methods discussed below. Please understand that we need certain types of information so that we can provide the Services to you. If you do not provide us with this information, or ask us to delete it, you may no longer be able to access or use our Services.

1. Information You Provide to Us

We collect a variety of information that you provide directly to us. For example, we may collect information from you through:

Information about you

When you enroll as a student or subscriber on our Site or related courses, as part of the enrolling process, we collect the personal information you give us like as your name and email address. 

While parts of the Services may not require you to provide any information that can directly identify you by name (like if you choose to browse the Website without logging in), the specific types of information we collect will depend upon the Services you use, how you use them, and the information you choose to provide. The types of data we collect directly from you include:

2. Information We Collect Through Automated Means

When you use our Services, we collect certain information as described in this Section. As discussed further below, we and our service providers (which are third-party companies that work on our behalf) may use a variety of technologies, including cookies and similar tools, to assist in collecting this information.

Websites 

When you use our Website, we collect and analyze information like your IP address, browser types, browser language, operating system, software and hardware attributes (including device IDs) referring and exit pages and URLs, the number of clicks, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the date and time you used the Services, error logs, and other similar information.

Location Information

When you use the Services, we and our service providers may automatically collect general location information (e.g., IP address, city/state and or postal code associated with an IP address) from your computer or mobile device.

3. Information We Collect From Social Media and Other Content Platforms

If you access the Services through a third-party connection or log-in (e.g., through a social network like Facebook or Google), you may allow us to have access to and store certain information from your social network profile. This can include your name, gender, profile picture, your “likes” and check-ins, and your list of friends, depending on your settings on these services. If you do not wish to have this information shared, do not use a social networking connection to access the Services. For a description of how social networking sites handle your information, please refer to their privacy policies and terms of use, which may permit you to modify your privacy settings. 

4. Information We Collect from Others

We may receive additional information like demographic and statistical information from third parties (e.g., business partners, marketers, researchers, analysts, and other parties) that we may attribute to you based on your assignment to certain statistical groups. We use this information to supplement the information that we collect directly from you in order to derive your possible interests and to provide more relevant experiences for you and improve our products, analytics, and advertising.

How We Use Your Information

We, or our service providers, use your information for different purposes depending on the types of information we have collected from and about you. We us this information to:

Email Marketing

We may send you emails about our Site and related course(s), registration, course content, your course progress or other updates. We may also use your email to inform you about changes to the course, survey you about your usage, or collect your opinion. 

Combined Information 

For the purposes discussed in this Privacy Policy, we may combine the information that we collect through the Services with information that we receive from other sources, both online and offline, and use that combined information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Aggregate/Anonymous Data 

We may aggregate and/or anonymize any information collected through the Services so that that information can no longer be linked to you or your device. We may use this information for any purpose, including without limitation for research and marketing purposes, and may also share this data with any third parties, including advertisers, promotional partners, and sponsors.

Thinkific

Our course and Site is hosted by Thinkific Labs Inc. (“Thinkific”). They provide us with the online course creation platform that allow us to sell our product/services to you.

Legal Bases to Use Your Information

The legal bases for using your information under this Privacy Policy are as follows:

How We Get Your Consent

When you provide us with personal information to become a subscriber on our Site, make a purchase, or participate in the course, you imply that you consent to our collecting it and using it for that specific reason only. 

Online Analytics And Advertising

1. Analytics

We may use third-party web analytics services (like Google Analytics) on our Services to collect and analyze usage information through cookies and similar tools; engage in auditing, research, or reporting; assist with fraud prevention; and provide certain features to you. To prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.

If you receive email from us, we may use certain analytics tools, like clear GIFs to capture data like when you open our message or click on any links or banners our email contains. This data allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our communications and marketing campaigns.

2. Online Advertising

The Services may integrate third-party advertising technologies that allow for the delivery of relevant content and advertising on the Services, as well as on other websites you visit and other applications you use. The ads may be based on various factors like the content of the page you are visiting, information you enter like your age and gender, your searches, demographic data, user-generated content, and other information we collect from you. These ads may be based on your current activity or your activity over time and across other websites and online services and may be tailored to your interests.

Third parties may also place cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device to collect information about you as discussed above. These third parties (e.g., ad networks and ad servers like Google Analytics, DoubleClick, and others) may also serve tailored ads to you as you use the Internet and Internet-connected applications, and access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Services to assist in this activity.

We don’t have access to and this Privacy Policy does not cover, the use of cookies or other tracking technologies that may be placed on the device you use to access the Services by non-affiliated third parties. If you are interested in more information about tailored browser advertising and how you can generally control cookies from being put on your computer to deliver tailored advertising, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s Consumer Opt-Out link, the Digital Advertising Alliance’s Consumer Opt-Out link, or Your Online Choices to opt-out of receiving tailored advertising from companies that participate in those programs. To opt out of Google Analytics for display advertising or customize Google display network ads, visit the Google Ads Settings page. We do not control these opt-out links or whether any particular company chooses to participate in these opt-out programs. We are not responsible for any choices you make using these mechanisms or the continued availability or accuracy of these mechanisms.

Please note that if you exercise the choices above, you will still see advertising when you use the Services, but it will not be tailored to you based on your online behavior over time.

3. Notice Concerning Do Not Track

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers. Write.law strives to provide you with meaningful choices about the information collected on our Website and Services for third-party purposes, and that is why we provide the variety of opt-out mechanisms listed above. However, we do not currently recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals. To learn more about Do Not Track, you can do so here.

How We Share And Disclose Your Information

Write.law will share your information in the following ways:

Affiliates and Subsidiaries

We may share information we collect within Write.law to deliver products and services to you, ensure a consistent level of service, and enhance our products, services, and your customer experience.

Service Providers 

We provide access to or share your information with select third parties who perform services on our behalf. They have access to your information to perform these services. They provide a variety of services to us, including billing, sales, marketing, product content and features, advertising, analytics, research, customer service, data storage, security, fraud prevention, payment processing, and legal services.

Protection of Write.law and Others 

By using the Services, you acknowledge and agree that we may access, retain and disclose the information we collect and maintain about you if required to do so by law or in a good faith belief that that access, retention, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (a) comply with legal process (e.g. a subpoena or court order); (b) enforce our Terms of Service, this Privacy Policy, or other contracts with you, including investigation of potential violations; (c) respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third parties; (d) respond to your requests for customer service; and/or (e) protect the rights, property or personal safety of Write.law, its agents and affiliates, its users and/or the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection, and spam/malware prevention, and similar purposes.

Business Transfers

As we continue to develop our business, we may buy, merge, or partner with other companies. In these transactions, user information may be among the transferred assets. If a portion or all of our assets are sold or transferred to a third party, customer information (including your email address) would likely be one of the transferred business assets. If a transfer is subject to additional mandatory restrictions under applicable laws, we will comply with those restrictions.

Public Forums

Certain features of our Services will or do make it possible for you to share comments publicly with other users. Any information that you submit through these features is not confidential, and we may use it for any purpose (including in testimonials or other marketing materials). Any information you post openly in these ways will be available to the public at large and potentially accessible through third-party search engines. So please take care when using these features.

Aggregate/Anonymous Information 

From time to time, we may share Aggregate/Anonymous Information about the use of the Services, like by publishing a report on usage trends. The sharing of that data is unrestricted.

How We Keep Your Information

We only keep your information for as long as necessary. The length of time we keep information depends on why we collected and used it and or as required to comply with applicable laws.

Your Data Rights and Choices

You have certain rights with respect to your information as described in this section.

1. Your Legal Rights

If you would like further information related to your legal rights under applicable law or would like to exercise any of them, please contact us using the information in the “Contact Information” section below at any time. Your local laws (e.g., in the EU) may permit you to request that we:

We will consider all requests and provide our response within the time period stated by applicable law. Please note, however, that certain information may be exempt from these requests, which may include if we need to keep processing your information for our legitimate interests or to comply with a legal obligation. We may request you to provide us with information necessary to confirm your identity before responding to your request.

2. Marketing Communications and Sharing

You may instruct us not to use your contact information to contact you by email, postal mail, or phone regarding products, services, promotions and special events that might appeal to your interests by contacting us using the information below. In commercial email messages, you can also opt out by following the instructions located at the bottom of our emails. Please note that, regardless of your request, we may still use and share certain information as permitted by this Privacy Policy or as required by applicable law. For example, you may not opt out of certain operational emails, like those reflecting our relationship or transactions with you, or important notifications regarding courses in which you are enrolled.

Third-Party Services

In general, the third-party services we use will only collect, use, and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.

But certain third-party service providers, like payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information we are required to provide to them for your purchase-related transactions.

For these providers, we recommend that you read their privacy policies so you can understand the manner in which your personal information will be handled by these providers.

Certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction than either you or us. If you elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third-party service provider, then your information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

As an example, if you are located in Canada and your transaction is processed by a payment gateway located in the United States, then your personal information used in completing that transaction may be subject to disclosure under United States legislation, including the Patriot Act.

Once you leave our Website or are redirected to a third-party website or application, you are no longer governed by this Privacy Policy or our Website’s Terms of Service.

Links

When you click on links on our Site, they may direct you away from our Site. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other sites and encourage you to read their privacy statements.

Age of Consent

By using the Services, you represent that you are at least the age of majority in your state, province, or jurisdiction of residence, or that you are the age of majority in your state or province of residence. 

The Services are intended for general audiences and not for children under the age of 13. If we become aware that we have inadvertently collected “personal information” (as defined by the United States Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) from children under the age of 13 without valid parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible. We do not knowingly process data of EU residents under the age of 16 without parental consent. If we become aware that we have collected data from an EU resident under the age of 16 without parental consent, we will take reasonable steps to delete it as soon as possible. We also comply with other age restrictions and requirements in accordance with applicable local laws.

The information discussed in this Policy is processed in the United States by Write.law, whose principal office in the United States is located at 6720 N. Hualapai Way. Ste # 145-112, Las Vegas, NV 89149.

If you are located in the European Union or other regions with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, please note that you are transferring information to a country and jurisdiction that does not have the same data protection laws as your jurisdiction. As described above, we also may subcontract the processing of your data to, or otherwise share your data with other members within Write.law, service providers, and business partners in countries other than your country of residence, including the United States, in accordance with applicable law. These third parties may be engaged in, among other things, the provision of Services to you, the processing of transactions and/or the provision of support services. By providing us with your information, you acknowledge any transfer, storage, or use. 

How We Protect Your Information

To protect your personal information, we take reasonable precautions and follow industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using secure socket layer technology (SSL) and stored with a AES-256 encryption.  Although no method of transmission over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we follow all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Changes To This Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy at any time to reflect changes in the law, our data collection and use practices, the features of our Services, or technological advances. We will make the revised Privacy Policy accessible through the Services, so you should review the Privacy Policy periodically.
