This Privacy Policy supplements and is incorporated as a part of Advocatia's Terms & Conditions available at https://www.advocatia.io/terms-conditions.

If you are accessing the Services from outside the United States, by providing your information to Advocatia and using the Services, you hereby consent to the transfer of your information to the United States for processing, storage and maintenance in accordance with this Privacy Policy and our Terms & Conditions.

1. Right To Modify Privacy Policy

Advocatia reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to alter this Privacy Policy at any time without prior notice to any User of the Services, including to comply with privacy laws, regulations and/or our own or industry standards or otherwise. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy each time you access or use the Services. Your use of the Services at any time, including after any change to this Privacy Policy, indicates your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, and any change made to this Privacy Policy.

2. Collection And User of Information From Users

While some Services, such as visiting the website, will not prompt a collection of information, you generally need to provide us with information to use the Services or to obtain information from most of the features on the website, including to allow us to provide you with certain personalized or enhanced services that you have requested. We collect information on our Users in various ways, including by your voluntary submissions, and through “cookies” (as explained below) and other tracking technology. The information we collect is used in a variety of ways including, but not limited to: fulfilling and providing the Services and any other services requested by you; improving the website and our Services; notifying you about updates to the website and our Services; and/or informing about products, services, and promotions in which you may have interest. With your authorization or as otherwise permitted under this Privacy Policy, we may also share the information you provide with third parties.

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.

Aggregate Information: From time to time, we may collect general, non-personal, statistical information about the use of the website, such as how many visitors visit a specific web page, how long they stay on that page, and which hyperlinks, if any, they click on. This information represents a generic overview of our Users’ collective viewing habits and allows us and other third parties to modify information, promotions, offers, and/or discounts on products and services based on user traffic and behavior. We collect this information through the use of technologies such as “cookies”, which are discussed in greater detail in this Privacy Policy. We collect this information in order to determine, for example, which areas of the Services are most popular and to enhance the Services. We may also group this information into aggregate visitor data in order to describe the use of the Services to our existing or potential business partners or other third parties, or in response to a government request. From time to time, we may use this information to optimize third-party offers of products and/or services. We also may share aggregated demographic and preference data with third parties to enable the provision of targeted information. However, please be assured that this aggregate data in no way will it personally identify you or any other Users of the Services.

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.

Do Not Track: We automatically collect cookies and other non-Personally Identifying Information when you use the Services. We currently use third-party cookies, as discussed above, to track your visits across websites. While our collection of cookies does not include Personally Identifying Information, you may opt out of such collection in accordance with applicable laws by contacting us pursuant to Section 9 of this Privacy Policy.

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.

6. Applicable Law

This Privacy Policy shall be governed by the laws of the State of Illinois, without regard to conflicts of law principles. Any action relating to this Privacy Policy must be filed and maintained in a state or federal court of competent jurisdiction located in Illinois, and each User consents to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in such courts for such purpose. Advocatia makes no representation that this Privacy Policy and such practices comply with the laws of any country outside the United States.
