GeniusLaw is dedicated to protecting your personal information. We have implemented this privacy policy to keep your personal information secure and to govern data collection and usage of the products, services, software, platform and websites (collectively, "Services") provided by Genius Law, Inc., and any of our affiliates (collectively, "GeniusLaw"). The Privacy Policy covers GeniusLaw’s treatment of the personal information we collect when you use the Online Services and further describes the choices available to you regarding our use of your personal information and how you can access and update this information. Specifically, GeniusLaw requires each customer to provide us with personal information such as: (1) "Contact Information" (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) "Financial Information" (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) "Demographic Information" (such as your zip code and sex); and (iv) other "Legal Information" (such as your mortgage information, property address, marital information, and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents) (collectively referred to as “Personal Information”), in order to access and use our Services.

By using our Services, you consent to the data practices described in this policy as well as our Terms of Use and Service. If you do not agree to any part of this Privacy Policy, then you should stop accessing the Services.

  1. Information We Collect. Certain information is collected during your use of GeniusLaw, detailed as follows.
    1. Personal Information. GeniusLaw may collect the following personal information: your e-mail address, name, physical address, telephone number, or employment information. If you purchase our Services, we will also collect and store your billing and credit card information. We may also collect anonymous demographic information, which is not unique to you, such as your Postal Code, age, gender, preferences, interests and favorites. This information will not be deleted for paying members.
      1. Security of your Personal Information. You are responsible for safeguarding and preventing unauthorized access to the user information and password that you use to access our Services. You agree not to disclose your password to any third party and you are responsible for any activity using your account, whether or not you authorized that activity. Please immediately advise GeniusLaw of any suspicious or unauthorized use of your account. GeniusLaw secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. In addition, GeniusLaw secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
      2. Public Record. Certain personal information becomes public record when documents are filed with a court or with the state or federal government. For example, your name, home address and other information included in the Complaint or Motions become public information when you file a lawsuit with a court. The Court may publish this information to its website or provide this information to third parties for a fee. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office publishes the names and addresses of trademark registrants. The Secretary of State publishes information regarding business entities. In some states, fictitious business names, including the name and address of the business owner, must be published in a newspaper. Our Privacy Policy does not cover these or similar third-party actions.
    2. Traffic Data. Information about your computer hardware and software may be automatically collected by GeniusLaw. GeniusLaw may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data. GeniusLaw may use this information to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use GeniusLaw at specific intervals (collectively "Traffic Data"). GeniusLaw may use Traffic Data to analyze site traffic, administer the site, diagnose problems with the server, or display content according to preferences. This information may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose personally identifiable information or personally sensitive data through the Services, this information may be collected and used by others. GeniusLaw encourages you to review the privacy statements of websites you choose to link to from our website so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and share your information.
