Specific information regarding our data practices is detailed below.
Information that We Collect: Personal and Non-personal
We collect two types of information from visitors to the Site: (1) Personal Information; and (2) Non-Personal Information, such as your IP address or cookies.
When we use the term “Personal Information” we mean information we may collect that allows others to identify or contact you specifically. For instance, we may collect your email address if you agree to receive newsletters and other information from us. We may also pair that with your address or location and other personal information that you provide to help determine that you may be eligible to receive services from providers in your state or community, and that the information we provide will likely be relevant to you. By contrast, non-personal information is not unique to you by itself. For example, your age does not normally identify you separate from other people your age.
We may collect various personal information, including the following:
While you’re under no obligation to provide the information requested, if you decline to do so, we may be unable to provide you with information about certain services. If you do not want us to collect your Personal Information, please do not provide it to us.
“Non-Personal Information” can be technical information or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender, zip code or other geolocation data, or interests. Non-Personal Information does NOT identify you personally. For example, your age does not normally identify you separate from other people your age. Here are some examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via the Site and a description of how this information is used:
The above list provides examples of the Non-Personal Information that is collected via the Site. We may collect the above Non-Personal Information from all visitors to our Site. If you do not want us to have access to this information, please do not visit our Site.

We may use your Personal Information for other purposes consistent with the overall purpose of the operation of the Site. By providing your Personal Information, you are consenting to these uses of it.
Non-Personal Information is used as described above and in other ways as permitted by applicable laws, including combining Non-Personal Information with Personal Information.
For example, we may use Non-Personal Information and usage data to (i) create marketing analyses and reports showing how our users, as collective groups, interact with our services, (ii) develop reports that help us and other strategic third parties determine what interests our service users, as a group, or (iii) generally improve our program and service offerings. Such reports will be shared with the Legal Services Corporation, and third parties helping us to administer this Site and our services. However, such reports will not contain any Personal Information about you.
Examples of ways in which we may share or disclose your Personal Information includes the following:
We share Non-Personal Information collected on the Site in the manner disclosed above regarding use or sharing of Personal or Non-Personal Information. We may share this Non-Personal Information with third parties helping us administer the Site or our services.
The Site does not target children under the age of 13 or knowingly collect Personal Information from such individuals. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with Personal Information, we will take steps to remove such information.
You may opt-out of receiving promotional messages from us or strategic third parties at any time. For communications through subscription services (e-mail alerts, text alerts, etc.) you can opt-out through the means provided by that service. We will process your unsubscribe as soon as possible, but please be aware that in some circumstances you may receive a few more messages until the unsubscribe is processed. That said, please note that unsubscribing from promotional e-mails will not opt you out of transactional communications or ones that we are required to send.
If you respond to any interactive advertisement or offer by a third party (whether via an e-mail, message or otherwise), or if you request information about a product, program or service offered by a third party, then your Personal Information will be disclosed to such third party. We cannot control, and make no representations about, the collection or use of your information by such third parties. If you choose to register for or subscribe to any such third party product or service, any further correspondence between you and such third party including, without limitation, any resulting contractual agreements, are solely between you and the advertiser/third party. We will not be responsible for upholding any applicable terms, conditions, representations or warranties made by the advertiser/third party in connection therewith and shall otherwise have no liability associated with your interaction with such third party.
If you have any concerns regarding the accuracy of information that we may have collected about you and would like access to such information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we learn of a security system breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Site or providing Personal Information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the Site. We may post a notice on our Site if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the e-mail address you have provided to us in these circumstances or letter to the home address provided. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing. Nothing about this policy or your use of the site creates a duty for LSC to notify you of a breach.
This statement applies solely to information collected on the Site. The Site may contain links to other web sites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of these other web sites.
Please note that our Site does not support “Do Not Track” browser settings and does not currently participate in any “Do Not Track” frameworks that would allow us to respond to signals or other mechanisms from you regarding the collection of your Personal or Non-Personal Information.
In the event that all or part of our assets are sold or acquired by another party, or in the event of a merger, you grant us the right to assign the Personal and Non-Personal Information collected via the Site.
