When we say “we” or “us” or “Advocatia” we mean Advocatia Solutions, Inc. “You,” “Your,” or “User” means any person who accesses or uses the Services.

2. Collection And User of Information From Users
Information We Collect: We may collect information from our Users including Personally Identifiable Information, Protected Health Information, Aggregate Information and other information to allow us to provide you with the personalized and enhanced services you have requested. Examples of the type of information we may collect include name, telephone number, email, and postal address.
Personally Identifiable Information: Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name, phone number, email, or postal address, and possibly information relating to certain support or customer service issues (collectively, “Personally Identifiable Information”). While some Services, such as visiting the website, will not prompt a collection of Personally Identifiable Information, you generally need to provide us with Personally Identifiable Information to use the Services or to obtain information from most of the features on the website. How we collect and store information depends on the page you are visiting, the activities in which you elect to participate, and the Services provided. As noted, you can access or use many pages and services on the website without providing any Personally Identifiable Information. Still, other pages and services may prompt you to provide Personally Identifiable Information.
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA): In certain instances, Advocatia is subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as modified by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”). Specifically, Advocatia's use and disclosure of information that Advocatia creates, receives, maintains, or transmits for or on behalf of a HIPAA-covered entity that constitutes Protected Health Information (“PHI”) is subject to HIPAA. PHI refers to individually identifiable health information about an individual’s past, present or future physical or mental health or condition, the provision of health care to an individual, or the past, present or future payment for such care but only if we receive that information for or on behalf of a HIPAA-covered entity. If any information collected through the Services constitutes PHI, then Advocatia will use and disclose the information in accordance with HIPAA and any applicable contractual arrangements between Advocatia and the HIPAA-covered entity.
Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: The Services also may collect information automatically and through the use of electronic tools that may be transparent to Users. For example, we may automatically collect non-Personally Identifiable Information and data through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are small text files a website uses to recognize repeat Users, facilitate the User’s ongoing access to the website and facilitate the use of the website. Cookies also allow a website to track usage behavior and compile site usage information that will allow for the improvement of content and targeted advertising. It may be possible to disable some (but not all) cookies through your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect your ability to use the Service and your preference settings may not be saved. The method for disabling cookies may vary by device and browser, but can usually be found in preferences or security settings. You may occasionally get cookies from third parties with links on the Services as described below. We do not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third party ad servers is standard in the Internet industry.
Tracking technologies may record information such as Internet domain and host names; Internet protocol (IP) addresses; browser software and operating system types; clickstream patterns; and dates and times that the Services is accessed. An IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the web. Web servers, the computers that “serve up” webpages, automatically identify your computer by its IP address. We may link the information we record using tracking technologies to Personally Identifiable Information we collect through the Services for our own marketing purposes. In addition, we reserve the right to use IP addresses and other tracking technologies to identify a visitor when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our Terms & Conditions, to protect the Services, our customers or others, or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.
3. Disclosures And Transfers Of Information
We may share information about you with third parties as follows:
Aggregate Information: We may share user information in the aggregate with third-party advertisers and content distributors for our own marketing purposes. For example, we may disclose the number of Users that use the Service, how they use the Service, and basic non-personal demographic data. We will not share to third parties your personal information in a manner that identifies you for any direct marketing purposes by such third parties nor sell information that could be used to identify you as an individual.
Investigations: We may investigate and disclose information from or about you if we have a good faith belief that such investigation or disclosure is (a) reasonably necessary to comply with legal process and law enforcement instructions and orders, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, judicial proceeding, or other legal process served on us; (b) helpful to prevent, investigate, or identify possible wrongdoing in connection with the Service; or (c) protect our rights, reputation, property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.
Sale or Transfer of Business or Assets: If we are sold or disposed of as a going concern, whether by merger, reorganization, sale of assets or otherwise, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, any and all Personally Identifiable Information may be one of the assets sold or merged in connection with that transaction. Information about you may also need to be disclosed in connection with a commercial transaction where we or any one of our businesses are seeking financing, investment, support, or funding.
4. Data Security And Integrity
We take reasonable precautions to protect the privacy, accuracy, and reliability of any information you provide and to protect such information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. The Personally Identifiable Information you provide and we collect is stored within databases that are controlled by us or by our service providers. As we deem appropriate, we use security measures consistent with industry standards, such as firewalls and encryption technology, to protect your information. However, since no security system is impenetrable, we cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. As a result, you transmit any information to or from the Services at your own risk.
5. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act
We understand and share your concerns regarding your children’s access to Internet and the Internet’s access to your children. Consistent with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not knowingly request or accept Personally Identifiable Information submitted to the Services by any visitor under 13 years of age. If you become aware that your child has used the Services, and we may have Personally Identifiable Information about a user under 13, please contact us.
