4. POLICY APPLICABLE TO ONLINE ACTIVITIES ONLY
5. PERSONAL INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
In providing you the Services, we may ask you for certain information referred to as “Personal Information,” which includes information that pertains to your identity. Such information may include, but is not limited to, items such as your name, address, date of birth, age, gender, e-mail address, or telephone number. You will be required to provide Personal Information to create a LawTova account and access or use certain parts or features of LawTova. If you do not provide the requested Personal Information, you may not be able to access or use the Services.
6. LOCATION INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
You may also choose to provide us with or publish your location information (“Location Information”) through your use of LawTova. If provided, we may use and store your Location Information to provide certain features of the Services and to improve and customize LawTova with more relevant lawyer directory listings.
7. GENERAL INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT
There may be other instances in which we collect information from you that is more general in nature (“General Information”). Such information may include your Internet Protocol (IP) address, which enables us to identify your computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network, which includes the World Wide Web. Your computer has an IP address, which is required in order for you to communicate with others via the internet. Such General Information, including the click stream data and cookies, as mentioned below, may be collected from you whenever you access LawTova, whether or not you provide us with any Personal Information or register as a user.
When you visit our website, we may also collect “Click Stream Data” (server address, domain name). This information can be combined with information you have provided to us by registering, for example, which will enable us to analyze and better customize your visits. We may use Click Stream Data for traffic analysis of our website to determine which features of our site or the Services are most or least effective or useful to you.
8. GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
We will primarily use the Personal Information you provide and any General Information we receive from you to provide the Services to you. We may also use your Personal Information for other purposes including, but not limited to, the following:
To send you information or materials via e-mail about products, offers, and news we think might interest you. This information may relate to products, offers, and news of the Company or its licensees or selected commercial partners. We send you this only if you have double-opted-in to receive e-mails from us. If you no longer wish to receive any e-mails from us, or if you want to modify your personal data or want your personal data to be deleted from our database, see the section titled “Deleting or Modifying Personal Information”.
To analyze visits to our website and learn about the interests of our visitors in aggregate and also on a personal level to better understand your interests and needs, so we can improve LawTova and deliver to you the type of content, features and promotions that you are most interested in.
9. PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND GENERAL INFORMATION
In order to protect both the Personal Information and the General Information that we receive from you through LawTova, we have implemented various security measures through the use of Amazon Web Services (“Amazon”). Find Amazon’s Overview of Security Process whitepaper here.
Please keep in mind, however, that whenever you give out Personal Information online there is a risk that third parties may intercept and use that information. While the Company strives to protect your Personal Information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online. By using LawTova, you expressly acknowledge and agree that we do not guarantee the security of any data provided to or received by us through the Services and that any personal information, general information, or other data or information received from you is provided to us at your own risk, which you expressly assume.
10. PASSWORD PROTECTION

You will also be asked to provide a user name and password. You are entirely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your password. You may not use the account, username, or password of someone else at any time. You agree to notify Company immediately concerning any unauthorized use of your account, user name, or password. Company shall not be liable for any loss that you incur as a result of someone else using your password, either with or without your knowledge. You may be held liable for any losses incurred by the Company, its affiliates, officers, directors, employees, consultants, agents, and representatives due to someone else’s use of your account or password.

11. STRIPE PAYMENT SYSTEM
12. CALIFORNIA DO NOT TRACK NOTICE
We do not track our users over time or across third-party websites and therefore do not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals.
13. NOTICE CONCERNING CHILDREN
We are a general audience site, and do not direct any of our content specifically at children under 13 years of age. We understand and are committed to respecting the sensitive nature of children’s privacy online. If you are a parent or guardian and have authorized a minor (under 18 years of age) to use LawTova, you are responsible for the online conduct of such minor, and the consequences of any misuse of LawTova by the minor. If you become aware that your child has provided us with Personal Information without your consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we learn or have reason to suspect that a LawTova user is under age 13, we will promptly take action to delete any Personal Information and terminate that user’s account.
14. INTERNATIONAL USERS
By using LawTova and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that, due to the international dimension of the Services, we may use the data collected in the course of your use of LawTova for the purposes identified in this Policy or in our other communications with you, including the transmission of information outside your resident jurisdiction.
