Privacy Policy

Last Updated: January 7, 2015
Version 1.1

Communications between you and LawGo are protected by this Privacy Policy but are not subject to an attorney’s duty of confidentiality and are not protected by the attorney-client privilege or as work product. LawGo provides access to independent attorneys at your specific direction. LawGo is not a law firm or a substitute for an attorney or law firm. LawGo is not a “lawyer referral service” and does not provide legal advice or participate in any legal representation; for legal advice, you should consult a licensed attorney — LawGo can assist you in finding such an attorney, but is not itself an attorney or a law firm. 

At LawGo Inc. (“LawGo”, “we”, “our” or “us”), privacy, integrity and trust are of utmost importance to us. We want you to understand how we collect, use, disclose and protect your private information. LawGo operates the website located at www.lawgo.co (the “Site”). This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explains the ways in which your information is collected and used on the Site and any other online or telephone services which are owned or operated by LawGo, including all features, content, products and services which may be offered from time to time by any or all of the foregoing. The services, features, content, or applications that may be offered from time to time by LawGo in connection with the Site and/or LawGo’s business are collectively referred to as the “Services”.

By the Site or by instructing a LawGo representative to create a LawGo account on your behalf, you are accepting the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy and agreeing that LawGo will have the right to use your personal and other information as described in this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, you must immediately discontinue your access to and use of the Site and Services.

As used in this Privacy Policy, the terms “you” and “your” mean each individual or entity that accesses, browses or uses the Site and/or Services in any manner. If you are accessing the Site and/or using the Services on behalf of an entity, you represent and warrant to LawGo that you personally satisfy the eligibility criteria in Paragraph 3 below and you have the authority to bind the business to the Privacy Policy. Your agreement to these terms will be treated as the agreement of the entity you represent.

1. Scope of this Privacy Policy
This Privacy Policy covers personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information collected by LawGo when you visit or use the Site or use the Services. Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to third parties, including, without limitation, entities that LawGo does not own or control, such as third party sites that may have a link to or from the Site.

2. Information is Not Subject to Attorney-Client Privilege
By using the Site and/or Services, no attorney-client relationship will be created with LawGo. Accordingly, while communications between you and LawGo are protected by this Privacy Policy, they are not protected by attorney-client privilege, an attorney’s duty of confidentiality, or the work product doctrine.

3. Children under 13 Years of Age
The Site and Services are general audience services, and are not directed to individuals under 13 years of age. LawGo does not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under 13 years of age. If you are under 13 years of age, you may not use the Site or Services.

4. Personal Information
LawGo may collect both personally identifiable information (“PII”) as well as non-personally identifiable information (“Non-PII”) when you visit or use the Site.

4.1 Personally Identifiable InformationPII means information that would allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. PII includes, without limitation, your full name, email address, zip code, telephone number, birth date, and credit card number. LawGo only collects PII if that information is voluntarily provided by you. This may happen in several ways:

4.1.1. User Accounts In order to access and utilize certain products or services provided by LawGo, you may be required to create a user account or to have our customer service personnel create one on your behalf and to provide certain PII, such as your full name, an email address, telephone number, a user name and/or a password, etc. You are under no obligation to provide this information to LawGo. However, if you decide not to share this information, you may be unable to utilize all or some of the Services.
4.1.2. Financial Transactions LawGo uses third parties to provide credit card and other payment processing services, such as billing services for lawyers, for the Site and/or Services. When you make or receive any payment on or through the Site, you will be required to provide LawGo and/or its authorized third party agents with financial information and related payment information. LawGo and its third party agents may retain the details of financial transactions or payments you make on or through the Site.
4.1.3. Public Forums LawGo may provide areas on the Site where you can post information about yourself and others, such as the function of the site that allows users to review lawyers or that allows lawyers to create a public profile on the Site. Whenever you disclose personal information on publicly viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and may also appear on other websites and in publicly available search results. If you post your personal contact information, you may receive unsolicited messages. LawGo encourages you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to the public posting of your personal information.
4.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information Non-PII means information that does not allow a third party to identify or locate a particular person. You can visit the Site to read information about the Site and the products and services offered without revealing any PII. However, during your visit to the Site, LawGo may collect anonymous Non-PII such as the activity of your browser when you are viewing the Site; your site path during your visit to the Site; demographic data; the amount of time you spend on the Site and general information regarding your Internet service provider and host. The Non-PII may be collected by LawGo in several ways:
4.2.1.

4.2.2. Cookies LawGo may use “cookies” to enhance your use of the Site and the Services and to monitor your activity during your visit(s) to the Site. Cookies are text files placed in your computer’s browser to identify your Internet browser and to store your preferences. You can remove or block cookies by programming your Internet browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to access certain portions of the Site and certain Services.
4.2.3. Beacons LawGo may also use “web beacons”, clear.gifs, or similar technologies, to track the activity and flow of your visit(s) to the Site. “Web beacons” and clear.gifs are small pieces of code placed on a web page to monitor the behavior of and to collect data about the visitors to that page.

5. Information Collected by Third Parties
LawGo may use the services of third parties for various purposes, including, without limitation, to provide LawGo with data collection (such as impressions, clicks, date and time of impressions and clicks, pages viewed, amount of time spent on certain pages or engaged in certain activities, browser type and operating system, and other general click stream information), user traffic activity, reporting and ad response measurement, and to deliver advertisements and marketing messages. These third parties, or LawGo on their behalf, may use their own cookies to monitor your activity during your visit to the Site and/or use of the Site and the Services. Additionally, these third parties, or LawGo on their behalf, may place web beacons, clear.gifs or similar technologies on the Site, including, without limitation, on any and all (i) webpages and (ii) email or other electronic communications generated as part of the Site or the Services which are sent to you, as well as your replies thereto, and your actions in connection therewith, such as whether or not an email has been opened, a link has been clicked, or a page has been visited. LawGo does not control the foregoing third party monitoring technologies or the information which they may collect and LawGo has no responsibility or liability in connection with the foregoing. A third party’s use of the foregoing monitoring technologies and the information collected is subject to the third party’s own privacy policies and is not covered by this Privacy Policy. You can remove or block third party cookies and similar technologies by programming your Internet browser, but in some cases that may impact your ability to access certain portions of the Site and certain Services.
