What Personal Data We Collect and Why We Collect It

What We Collect

We capture some information automatically about visitors to our website using cookies and other tracking and storage technologies. Here are some examples of types of information collected: browsing and navigation information, device type, IP address, operating system, referring site, social sharing, location data, and web browser. You may adjust the settings on your browser to decline the use of cookies. Most of the information we collect automatically is statistical data that does not identify you as an individual. However, we may tie the information we collect this way to information about you that we collect from other sources or that you provide to us. Some automated tools we use, such as customer relationship management software and PayPal, collect additional information on our behalf, such as your business domain name and phone number, email open and click information, IP city, IP state, and IP time zone. Where the use of our website can function as legal consent, you consent to our collection of this data by using our website.

We capture some information about you from you directly when you volunteer information to sign up for newsletters, fill out a form on our website, complete a search query on our website, or contact us by email. Examples of this type of information include your name, email address, physical address, and telephone number. By providing this information, you consent to our collection of your personal data. We may also collect information about you from public sources.

We do not collect credit card or payment information on our site; all financial transactions are handled externally via PayPal.

Why We Collect and How We Use Personal Information

We use the information we collect to respond to your inquiries; to perform our contractual obligations; to provide services you request; to administer, monitor, and improve our web traffic and usage; to present and customize our site for return visitors; to speed up user searches and loading time; to recognize users when they return to our site; to improve our marketing and sales; to fulfill any legal obligations we have to governmental authorities; and to provide you and other users with better services and a better website experience. We use the information you volunteer to respond to your requests and to provide you with additional information. Providing this information is voluntary and you should not submit personal information to us.

How Long We Retain Your Data

We may keep information for an unlimited period of time or may destroy or delete information after use for it has passed.

Data Security

Please note that electronic communication, including email and general contact forms, are not necessarily secure against interception, and we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your data. Please do not send sensitive data using these methods. We do not collect or process payment information when payments are made for our services, such as continuing legal education registration; instead, these payments are handled outside our website by PayPal.

We take reasonable precautions to protect your personal data and communications. This includes entering into written commitments from third parties that may have access to your data that they will protect that data using safeguards that are substantially similar to those used by TOPDOG Legal Marketing. The inclusion of links to third-party websites on our site does not imply that we endorse any products or services on those sites. If you choose to visit these sites, we suggest that you review their privacy policies, as we have no responsibility or liability relating to your visits to those sites.

When We Share Data

TOPDOG Legal Marketing never shares, sells, or rents your data to third parties for marketing purposes. We may collect and disclose anonymous and aggregated information about our users for the purposes of product research, to improve our services and website, and for other commercial purposes. We may disclose your personal information to comply with a court order, law, or legal process, or to enforce or apply our agreement with you.
