This policy describes the types of information FizzLaw collects from its users and how that information is used. Please read this policy carefully before providing FizzLaw with any personal information. If you have questions about this policy, feel free to e-mail FizzLaw at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information We Collect
We log your IP address in order to help diagnose problems with our server, administer our Web site and track usage statistics. Your IP address may vary each time you visit, or it may be the same, depending on whether you access our site through an always-on type of Internet connection (e.g., cable modem or DSL), or through a dial-up connection (e.g., AOL or Earthlink). Either way, it would be extremely difficult for us to identify you through your IP address, and we make no attempt to do so. If you reached our site by clicking on a link or advertisement on another site, then we may also log that information. This helps us to maximize our Internet exposure, and to understand the interests of our users. All of this information is collected and used only in the aggregate; that is, it is entered into our database, where we can use it to generate overall reports on our visitors, but not reports about individual visitors.
If you choose to register with us and you otherwise meet the guidelines for registration posted at our site from time to time, you'll be able to add content to our site and to personalize your FizzLaw site experience. The benefits of registering will increase over time as we get to know you better and introduce new features.
If you register with us, we will collect personal information from you in addition to the non-personal information described above. That personal information may include your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number, user name and password, as well as contact information for other people that you provide to us. The information we collect may vary, but we only collect the information that you manually enter into our forms or otherwise authorize us to collect. We may store all or some of that information in a cookie file on your hard drive, so that our system will recognize you each time you visit our site. In that way, we can save your preferences from visit to visit and present you with a customized Web site, without requiring you to log into our site every time you visit. To improve services and enhance personalization, we may periodically obtain information about you from other independent third- party sources and add it to your registration information. Additionally, authorized FizzLaw personnel may update your registration information to accurately reflect any new information included in communications received from you.
How We Use The Personal Information We Collect
Registering with FizzLaw may allow you to post reviews and other content to our site, as well as to personalize our site so that it is most useful to you. Reviews and other content you post to our site will be made available to the general public. We may also use your personal information to periodically contact you with news or important information from FizzLaw, to provide you with other information or invitations related to your membership or the FizzLaw community, and to request your feedback on our site. In addition to these periodic updates, we may email you additional materials, but only if you specifically request them. These might include opt-in newsletters and other materials that you proactively request from FizzLaw.
In addition to these communications, if you have provided an email address, we may use your personal information to send you notifications about special offers or to tell you about opportunities available from our partners. You may opt-out of any or all marketing communications from FizzLaw in any commercial e-mail we send or at any time, as well as access and update your personal information, by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
We may also use certain information that you provide in order to present you with advertising that you may find interesting. You can cancel your registration with us by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and placing your email address in the subject of the e-mail. We will send you an e-mail to confirm your request. After we receive confirmation, we will remove your information from our active database, but some information may remain in our archives. We may not be able to remove your information from our partners' databases, if we have transmitted any information to them.
Disclosure of Your Personal Information
FizzLaw does not sell or rent any personal information to any third party, other than our partners, as discussed in this policy. We may aggregate personal information from all of our users and provide that information in the aggregate to other parties, including advertisers, for marketing and promotional purposes. However, if we do so, that information will not be in a form that will allow any third party to identify you personally.
As you might expect, FizzLaw must cooperate with legal authorities, and may in some circumstances be required to disclose personally identifiable information in response to requests from law enforcement authorities, or in response to a subpoena or other legal process. We don't expect this to happen, but if it does, we will provide only the information required. We can also turn over information about you if we believe we must in order to prevent a violation of the law, and by accepting this policy, you consent to our doing so, in our sole discretion. You also consent to our disclosing information about you in the course of legal proceedings if we are legally required to do so, if we reasonably believe that doing so may mitigate our liability, or if doing so will assist us in enforcing our legal rights. We also may share your information in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation or asset sale.
If you choose to participate in any member-to-member communications programs, you may be contacted by other FizzLaw members, using FizzLaw as an intermediary. All FizzLaw members will have the option to turn off the member-to-member communication features, to the extent offered, at any time.
How You Can Review and Update Your Personal Information
You can review and update the personal information you have provided through the registration process by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
Steps We Take to Protect Your Personal Information
FizzLaw has implemented security procedures to help protect the personal information stored in our systems. For example, we limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information. But please know that there is no way for us to guarantee the security of your personal information.
This website is a general audience site, and we do not knowingly collect information about children. Should a child whom we know to be under 13 send personal information to us, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before receiving his or her personal information.
We reserve the right to change this policy should we deem it advisable to do so. Such changes will be effective on the date posted at our site – you are encouraged to review this policy from time to time
