For example, we collect information when you interact with us as a client (or as a prospective or former client), send us an email, fill out a form, make a payment, apply for a job, interact with us on social media, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of information we may collect include your name, username and password, postal address, email address, phone number, current occupation and business contact information, checking account, credit card or other financial account number, social security number, employment application information (including education and work history), social media username or handle, demographic information, preferences, state bar number and any other information you choose to provide.
Information Sent to Us by Your Web Browser
When you access or use the Services, we collect certain information about you that is sent to us automatically by your web browser, including:
- Log Information. Information about your use of the Services, including your internet protocol address (“IP address”), the identity of your Internet Service Provider, the name and version of your operating system, the name and version of your browser, the date and time of your visit, and the pages you visit. An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you connect to the Internet. It is used to identify your computer’s “location” in cyberspace, so that the information you request can be delivered to you. If you use a dial-up connection or a connection that assigns dynamic IP addresses, your computer will be assigned a new IP Address each time you connect to the Internet. If, however, your computer is permanently connected to the Internet using a static IP address, the IP address assigned to your computer will generally be the same each time you use your computer. Although it does not identify you by name, we treat your IP address as your personal information.
- You should know that when you access the Services by clicking on a link in an electronic communication you receive from us, your browser tells us that someone has clicked on a particular link in that particular electronic communication. We use this information to improve our marketing efforts. In addition, we review our server logs — which contain visitors’ IP addresses — for security and fraud prevention purposes. If criminal activity is suspected, we may share our server logs and the personal information we have collected through the Services with the appropriate investigative authorities who could use that information to trace and identify individuals.
