WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit the public area of the website, you remain anonymous. To the extent you use e-mail links or contact forms via the website to communicate with us and provide us with personally identifiable information, however, you will not remain anonymous.

The private member areas, which are not accessible to the public but only to those with appropriate authorizations including valid user IDs and passwords, requires completion of a registration process that may include basic information about such as you, such as name, address, e-mail address and the like. That information is accessible to our personnel involved in the transaction or matter for which the member area has been created and who have been authorized to access that area and, in some instances, to personnel of other legal services programs also involved in the transaction or matter for which the member area has been created and who also have been authorized to access that area. That information may also be accessible to personnel of a third-party service provider that provides maintenance to the member area for the purpose of such administration.
