  • Information we collect

    Information collected about Visitors: Like other website operators, Case & Suit collects information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools such as cookies (please see Section 4, “Our use of cookies,” for details). This non-personally identifying information (“User Non-Personal Information”) includes the visitor’s browser type, language preference, referring site, additional websites requested and the date and time of each Visitor request. We also collect potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (please see Section 1, “Information we collect-Information collected about Users” for details about this collection procedure). Case & Suit’s purpose in collecting User Non-Personal Information is to better understand how our Visitors’ use our website to improve their user experience and to serve more relevant ads or promotional offers on our site or third parties’ sites based upon that information.

    Information collected about Users: Either form of account creation may create any information about a User which could, alone or together with other personally-identifying information, personally identify him or her (“User Personal Information”). Case & Suit collects User Personal Information only with your consent which you express by using our Service after reviewing this Privacy Statement and Case & Suit’s Terms of Use. User Personal Information may include information you provide us directly, such as your email address, or information we collect through your use of our Services, such as your preferences or your search terms. User Personal Information may include, without limitation, your name, your email address, your billing address, your credit card or banking information, your State Bar number (for attorney Consultant Users), your profession, your business or industry, your photograph, and other personal information you provide to us through your use of the Service.

    We only gather the information you give us access to, and we only use it as described below. We only collect the minimum amount of personal information necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of your interaction with us or to serve you more relevant ads or promotional offers. User Personal Information does not include aggregated, non-personally identifying information. You may refuse to supply personally-identifying information; however, that refusal may prevent you from using Case & Suit’s Service.

If we learn or have reason to suspect that a User of our Service is under the age of 18, we will promptly delete any personal information in that User's account. Location-based data: Case & Suit also makes use of location-based data for our Website. If you allow these Services, we will ask you to enter your general location.

  • Gathering and protecting the information we collect

    Industry standards in data security: Case & Suit takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect User Personal Information from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction; maintain data accuracy; and help ensure the appropriate use of User Personal Information. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the User Personal Information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.

    No responsibility for third party service providers’ security: In addition, while we take measures reasonably necessary to ensure that our third-party service providers, such as our payment processing and data tracking, re-targeting or data analysis services, keep your information secure, these organizations' practices are ultimately beyond our control. By using our Service, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume these risks.

    Documents, in general: Case & Suit uses third party service providers to transmit, store, encrypt, process and display uploaded documents on our behalf. Case & Suit has taken measures reasonably necessary to ensure that these services keep uploaded documents private and secure, but these organizations practices are ultimately beyond our control. By using the documents feature, you acknowledge that you understand and agree to assume the risks.

    International data transfer: Information that we collect may be stored and processed in and transferred between any of the countries in which we operate in order to enable us to use the information in accordance with this privacy policy. By using the Service, you agree that we can store, process and transfer your information in this manner.

  • Compelled Disclosure

    Case & Suit discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Case & Suit, third parties, or the public at large. In complying with court orders and similar legal processes, Case & Suit strives for transparency. When permitted, we will make a reasonable effort to notify Users of such disclosure.

    However, if you have engaged an attorney Consultant through the Service (for example, by accepting a proposal and promising to pay or paying any required fees or costs), Case & Suit considers communications and documents shared with Consultant Users who are attorneys to be privileged attorney-client communications and, to the extent legally permissible, may notify the engaged attorney Consultant User of the subpoena, court order, or governmental request so that they may respond to the request. Furthermore, if an attorney Consultant User has been engaged, Case & Suit may no longer disclose information on a “good faith” belief.
