When you create an account, we collect personal information such as your name, email address, mailing address and telephone number.
When you make a payment, we collect personal information such as your name, address and credit card number, and such information is then used by our trusted third-party service provider to process the transaction.
When using the LawPitch Service, you or other users voluntarily submit information as part of a legal job or proposal. Although we ask that you do not include personal information, it may be included.
When you use the Service, we will automatically record information and your activity (ourselves, or through a trusted third-party service provider).

We also use “cookies” to collect information and improve our Service. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your Device. We may use “persistent cookies” to save your user ID and login password for future logins to the Service. We may use “session ID cookies” to enable certain features of the Service, to better understand how you interact with the Service and to monitor aggregate usage and web traffic routing on the Service. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all aspects of the Service.

We may display your first name, last initial, city and profile picture in your profile page and elsewhere on the Service.
When a Client accepts a legal proposal, we will provide the Client with the Lawyer’s contact information and the Lawyer with the Client’s contact information.
We do not sell trade, or disclose to third parties any personal information derived from the registration or use of the Service without consent (except as required by court order, subpoena, search warrant, or other legal process or in the case of imminent physical harm to the customer or others).
We may disclose your non-private, aggregated, or otherwise non-personal information, such as usage statistics of our Service.
You may review, update or correct the personal information which you provided when registering to the Service by logging into the service and changing your “Profile".

We may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, service other users, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Consistent with these requirements, we will try to delete your information quickly upon request. Please note, however, that there might be latency in deleting information from our servers and backed-up versions might exist after deletion. In addition, personal information provided during the course of using the Service, such as in a proposal, may not be able to be deleted.
LawPitch follows generally accepted standards to protect the information submitted to us in order to safe-guard the privacy of your personal information from unauthorized access or improper use, and we will continue to enhance our security procedures as new technology becomes available. However, no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your personal information.
