website, products, apps, and services (together, the “Services”). The Policy is intended
to inform you about how JURISQ and its affiliates (collectively, “we” and/or third parties
collect and use information so you can make an informed decision about using the
Services. Please read it carefully before using the Services or submitting any
information to us. If you do not agree to any part of this Policy, then you should stop
accessing the Services.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
What information do we collect?
1. Usage/log information
We collect usage information when you use the Services. This includes information
such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system and browser
type, the address of a referring website or a website to which you exit, the date and time
you access or use the Services, items you click on, pages you view and the amount of
time you spend on particular pages.
2. Cookies and online advertising
We also collect certain information (automatically) through the use of “cookies”; and
similar tracking technologies. Cookies are small data files that are stored on a user’s
computer or device at the request of a website to enable the website to recognize
previous visitors and retain information such as user preferences and history. If you
wish to block, erase, or be warned of cookies, please refer to your browser instructions
or “help screen” to learn about these functions. However, if your browser is set to not
accept cookies or if you reject a cookie, you will not be able to sign in to your JURISQ
account or use certain parts of the Services.
We may also use third parties to display and target ads, provide certain functionality
(such as maps), or to place their own cookies and other tracking technologies to collect,
track and analyze usage and statistical information from users. We are not responsible
for the information collection practices of any third parties.
3. Personal information
We collect and store Personal Information that you provide to us when accessing or
using the Services. “Personal Information” means information relating to a person who
is or can be identified directly from that information. This includes your name, address,
telephone number, email address, credit card or other account number. Personal
Information does not include: (1) aggregated or anonymized information; (2) any
publicly available information about lawyers; or (3) information that is posted to publicly
accessible areas of the Services. Examples of Personal Information we collect include
information that you provide when you (a) create or update your JURISQ account, (b)
communicate with us, (c) purchase services from us, (d) contact or recommend a
lawyer, (e) submit client ratings or peer endorsements. If you are a lawyer and claim or
update your profile “Profile” or post information using your Profile, we may also collect
4. Publicly posted Information
Personal Information that you post to public areas of the Services or via your Profile
may become publicly available and is no longer considered Personal Information. For
example, information you post in your Profile or in client ratings, peer endorsements,
Q&A, or any other interactive areas may be made publicly available and can potentially
be viewed by anyone. Your posting to such public areas of the Services constitutes
consent to share such information publicly, and you should assume that such
information will be widely disseminated, including via search engines and other tools to
locate information online (e.g., internet archive).
How we use the information we collect
1. Non-personal information
We use certain information (such as usage information, information collected
automatically through cookies and other tracking technologies, and aggregated or
anonymized information), for remarketing with Google Analytics, for ad targeting, to
analyze trends, administer the Services, improve customer service, diagnose problems
with our servers, track user movement, and gather demographic information for
aggregate use. Third-party ad platforms may use this information for a similar purpose,
but you should follow up with third parties and confirm their information collection and
usage practices directly. We may freely publish, disclose and use this information to or
with third parties.
2. Personal information
We use Personal Information to facilitate your use of the Services, to process your
requests or transactions, to provide you with information, products and services you
request, to administer and assist us with the operation of our business, and for the
purpose for which the information was provided. We may use the information we collect
to send you news relevant to you or in accordance with your preferences. We may also
send you advertisements from third parties. We do not disclose, rent, sell or otherwise
make available your Personal Information to third parties for direct marketing purposes.
3. Third-party service providers
In the event that we engage with third-party service providers in connection with our
Services, we may share Personal Information with such service providers who need
access to such information to carry out their work for us. For example, we may use
credit card processing or verification companies to verify credit card information or to
verify your identity. Other than such service providers, we do not share Personal
Information with third parties unless (1) you have indicated to us that you wish to
receive information from such parties; (2) you otherwise give us your consent to do so;
or (3) in response to a request for information or a subpoena.
4. Text messaging
We do not ordinarily send text messages for marketing purposes, but to the extent you
provide us with your mobile telephone number, you consent to the transmission of text
messages to such number, and waive any rights you may have under the Telephone
Consumer Protection Act. You may, however, contact us and opt-out of receiving such
Managing your preferences
1. Managing online advertising preferences
We respect all browser instructions for setting or rejecting cookies on generally
available browsers. This is one way to manage your preferences regarding the
collection of information by JURISQ. Additionally, and because data acquired across the
internet is often associated with information about you acquired in other places online,
you can manage online advertising preferences via these links:
Google Ad Preferences Manager
Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on
Facebook Ad Preferences Manager
Network Advertising Initiative
Digital Advertising Alliance
While JURISQ will follow any such preferences, we make no representations regarding
whether third parties, including third-party ad platforms, will do so.
2. Managing your newsletter/communications preferences
You may select whether or not you wish to continue to receive newsletters or other communications from JURISQ by following the unsubscribe instructions or using the unsubscribe links within the emails we send. You may “opt-out” of receiving of other emails from our affiliates and partners by following the unsubscribe instructions included in each email. Please note, however, that as long as you maintain an account, you may not “opt-out” of receiving service or account-related emails from JURISQ.
Requests for information; disclosure for enforcement purposes
We may disclose Personal Information when we are required to or we believe it is
appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to
enforce or apply this Policy or our other policies or agreements; to initiate, render, bill,
and collect for amounts owed to us; to protect our or our users’s rights, property or
safety; to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of the Services; or
if we believe that an emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury
to any person requires or justifies disclosure of Personal Information.
Updating your listing information and public posts
You can correct certain information by logging into your account and changing the
information, and you may also delete certain information by closing your account. In
addition, lawyers may change certain information contained in their Profile by claiming
their Profile and editing the information contained therein, or by sending us an email.
Please note that in certain circumstances, we may not, or may not be able to, remove or
change certain information, even in the event an account is closed. For example, we
may retain and continue to display any information you provided in connection with a
question, answer, endorsement or client review. In addition, lawyers cannot “unclaim”
profiles, and cannot remove their Profiles, ratings, endorsements or reviews by closing
JURISQ endeavors to secure your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use
or disclosure by putting into place reasonable physical, electronic and managerial
procedures to safeguard the information we collect. For example, when we collect credit
card information, we use a secure server with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption
software and store such credit card information using encryption methods designed to
prevent unauthorized access. Additionally, your account information is accessible online
only through the use of a password.
No security measures are perfect or impenetrable. To protect the confidentiality of your
Personal Information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to
any other person. You are responsible for all use of the Services by any person using
your password. Please advise us immediately by emailing us if you believe your
password has been misused. You should also note that email is not secure, and you
should not send any confidential or sensitive information to us via an unsecured email.
Third-party websites and practices
The Services may contain links to other websites or make available third-party services,
including ad platforms and technologies. We are not responsible for the privacy
practices of such third parties. We encourage you to be aware and to read the privacy
policies of any website or service that collects your information. Similarly, if you
accessed the Services through another website, we are not responsible for the privacy
website before providing any information to that website. This Policy applies solely to
information collected by us. Any opt-out requests related to a third party’s products or
services must be submitted directly to the third-party providing the products or services.
Transfers of information
Information about our customers, including Personal Information, may be disclosed as
part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, as well as in the
event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which Personal Information could
be transferred to third parties as one of JURISQ’s business assets. In such an event, we
will attempt to notify you before your Personal Information is transferred, but you may
not have the right to opt-out of any such transfer.
Our Services are not intended for use by children under the age of 13, and such use is
children under 13. If you become aware that a child has provided us with Personal
Information, please contact us as set forth in this Policy.
