PriorSmart does not automatically collect personally identifiable information in connection with the Service unless you register with PriorSmart and sign in to the Service, or unless you are invited by another user to receive PriorSmart litigation alerts through the Service (as discussed more below). We do track certain information about the visits to our website. We compile traffic-based statistics that show the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Service and individual web pages on the Service. The compilation is an aggregated statistical report that we use internally to understand traffic on the Service, manage the Service, and help diagnose any problems. Unless you are signed in to the Service or are invited by another user to receive PriorSmart litigation alerts through the Service, these statistical reports contain no personally identifiable information and are not used to gather such information. We also record information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, PriorSmart cookie information (as discussed more below), and software attributes.
When you register with PriorSmart and sign in to the Service, or when you are invited by another user to receive PriorSmart litigation alerts through the Service, PriorSmart may collect the following additional information:
* your name;
* your contact information, such as email address and/or physical address;
* the names of the individuals whom you have invited to receive PriorSmart litigation alerts through the Service;
* information relating to the links that you click on and emails that you open through the PriorSmart litigation alerts (which information is collected through PriorSmart user-specific links and web beacons, as discussed more below); and
* the names of individuals who invited you to receive PriorSmart litigation alerts through the Service.
We use user-specific web-links and web beacons in PriorSmart litigation alerts to collect information relating to the links that you click on and emails that you open through the PriorSmart litigation alerts. These user-specific links and web beacons are small snippets of code contained in PriorSmart litigation alerts. If you prefer not to receive user-specific links and web beacons and want to unsubscribe to PriorSmart litigation alerts, you may unsubscribe by clicking "Unsubscribe" in any PriorSmart litigation alert or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We use information gathered through the Service for the following general purposes: to fulfill your requests for information or services, improve the Service, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.
We may also disclose personal information collected through the Service if we believe it is necessary in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, or violations of our Terms and Conditions of Service; to protect and defend our rights and interests and those of our users; or as otherwise required by law.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet or e-mail is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect personal information that you submit to us, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Service. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
