In General. We may collect personal information that can identify you, such as your name and email address, and other information that does not identify you. When you provide personal information through our website, some of that information such as your name, likeness, company or firm name, professional bio and comments will be visible to other users of the website. If you are an in-house attorney, you have the option of making only your first name and last initial visible on the website and/or hiding your company name and title from public view. However, if you apply for continuing legal education credit through the website, we will supply your full name to the law firm or organization providing the credit, in order to enable the firm or organization to prepare and send you your certificate of attendance and maintain appropriate continuing legal education attendance records. The information you provide to us may be sent to servers located in the United States and other countries around the world.
Information from other sources. We may also periodically obtain both personal and non-personal information about you from business partners and other third parties. Examples of information that we may receive include: updated address information, purchase history, and additional demographic information.
Information about others. We may also collect and store personal information about other people that you provide to us. For example if you use our website to send others (friends, colleagues, etc.) information that may interest them or messages (such as invitations) through our system, we may store the contact information of each such recipient. Similarly, if you use our website to upload, share and/or distribute content (including videos, comments or other submissions), and such content contains personal information about others, that information may be stored in connection with the uploading, sharing and/or distribution of the content.

If you choose to decline cookies, please note that you may not be able to sign in or use some of the interactive features offered on our website.
Other Technologies. We may use standard Internet technology, such as web beacons and other similar technologies, to track your use of our site. We also may include web beacons in promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether messages have been opened and acted upon. The information we obtain in this manner enables us to customize the services we offer you to deliver more relevant, personalized content and/or offers to you, and to measure the overall effectiveness of our online advertising, content, programming or other activities.
Information collected by third parties. We may allow third parties, including our authorized service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display content or advertisements on our site. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. Unless expressly stated otherwise, our website does not provide any personal information to these third parties. This information allows them to deliver more relevant and personalized content and/or advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. Some of these third-party advertising companies may be advertising networks that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies (www.networkadvertising.org).
In General. We may use information that we collect about you to:

Please review "Your Choices About Collection and Use of Your Information" below.
We want you to understand when and with whom we may share personal or other information we have collected about you or your activities on our website or while using our services.
Personal information. We do not share your personal information with others except as indicated below or when we inform you and give you an opportunity to opt out of having your personal information shared. We may share personal information with:
Aggregated and non-personal information. We may share aggregated and non-personal information we collect under any of the circumstances described above. We may also share it with third parties to attract more subscribers to our website and/or to develop and deliver personalized content and/or advertising on our websites and on websites of third parties. We may combine non-personal information we collect with additional non-personal information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to our website and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any personal information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.
If you have an online account with us, you have the ability to review and update your personal information online by logging into your account. You can also review and update your personal information by contacting us. More information about how to contact us is provided below.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because the information may be required in order for you to register as a member; purchase a subscription; submit, view and/or access continuing legal education programs and accompanying materials; apply for or obtain continuing legal education credit; submit a comment or question; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; or initiate other transactions on our website.
When you register on our website you may be given a choice as to whether you want to receive email messages and/or newsletters about product updates, improvements, special offers, or containing special distributions of content by us. At any time you can choose to no longer receive commercial or promotional emails or newsletters from us by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and describing the items you no longer wish to receive. You also will be given the opportunity, in any commercial e-mail that we send to you, to opt out of receiving such messages in the future. It may take up to 10 days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them. Please note that, changing information in your account, or otherwise opting out of receipt of promotional email communications will only affect future activities or communications from us. If we have already provided your information to a third party (such as a credit card processing partner or an event provider) before you have changed your preferences or updated your information, you may have to change you preferences directly with that third party.
We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees and contractors are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. In addition, we use encryption in the transmission of your sensitive personal information between your system and ours, and we use firewalls to help prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to your personal information.
We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/menus/consumer/data.shtm for information about how to protect yourself against identity theft.
We may provide areas on our websites where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others; upload content (e.g. pictures, videos, documents, etc.); and post comments or reviews of content found on our website. Such postings are governed by our Terms and Conditions of Use. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information. Once you have posted information, you may not be able to edit or delete such information.
Our website is intended for users who are 18 years of age or older. In any event, we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.
