In general, you can visit the Website on the Internet without telling us who you are or giving us your personally identifiable information. As to any of your personal information described below, EDSG LLC will not give, sell, rent or exchange the information with anyone else without your prior consent except as compelled by law (see below). You can be assured that when we collect information from you, we will never use it for any marketing purposes. You may also turn off cookies in your browser. For more information on what a "cookie" is and how it works, please see below.
We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time and from time to time. Such changes, modifications, additions or deletions shall be effective immediately upon notice thereof, which may be given by posting the revised Policy on this page. You acknowledge and agree that it is your responsibility to review this Policy periodically, and be aware of any modifications. Your continued use of the Website after any such modifications will constitute your: (a) acknowledgment and understanding of any modified Policy; and (b) agreement to abide and be bound by any modified Policy.
B.TYPES OF INFORMATION COLLECTED
The Website is strictly informational and we DO NOT collect any personally identifiable information ("PII") from you unless you provide it to us. PII refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are, for example your first and last name or e-mail address if you register as a client or attorney. The PII that we do collect is never shared with anyone. However, this policy is subject to change without notice and we encourage you to periodically check our Policy statement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary above, we may retrieve and/or disclose PII about a user: (1) if compelled by law, or (2) in response to a request from a law enforcement official in connection with a court proceeding.
Non-personally identifiable information ("Non-PII") refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. For example, our service provider may gather certain general information about you based upon where and how you visit the Website in several ways. This information may be compiled and analyzed on both an individual and an aggregated basis. This information may include the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and/or your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web ("Web"). An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Web or allowing Web servers to locate and identify your computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet. We use Non-PII to enhance the smooth operation of the Website, statistically analyze the Website's use, improve our service offerings and customize the Website's content. Like your PII, we DO NOT share your Non-PII with anyone.
C.PRIVACY POLICIES OF THIRD-PARTY SITES
D.SECURITY OF INFORMATION
At our Website, you can be assured that your information is secure, consistent with current industry standards. The importance of security for all information associated with our users is of utmost concern to us. We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. For example, when you register and login to our Website through the Internet, we protect the information using encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 256-bit encryption protocol, which prevents unauthorized parties from viewing such information when it is transmitted. We review these security measures from time to time and evaluate new technologies or approaches that would further enhance the security measures currently in place. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we conscientiously strive to protect your information, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations of the Internet that are beyond our control; (b) the security, integrity, and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through this Website cannot be guaranteed; and (c) it is possible that any such information and data may be viewed or tampered with while in transit by a third party.
Once you leave the Website, the cookie remains on your computer's Web browser in case you choose to visit our Website again. The cookie is not deleted when you close your Web browser, although you may set your Web browser to delete cookies.
