The goal of Texaslegal.org is to provide a rich array of information and online tools to Texas Legal members and the public while at the same time respecting your privacy. To do this effectively, certain user data may be collected and/or reviewed so that we can understand our users and in turn make Texaslegal.org more and more relevant to each individual user. Information about members and the public is used in different ways, as outlined below.
Disclosure to Outside Third Parties
Texas Legal does not sell, trade or rent your personal information to others. We may provide information about customers, traffic patterns, sales and other site-related information to reputable third-parties on an aggregate basis, but this will never include any information identifiable to an individual.
Information collected from both members and the public includes:
Server log information: When you visit Texaslegal.org or any other website, you are identifiable as a unique number, called an IP address. Your IP address is automatically collected in server logs. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our server and to analyze server traffic to learn which pages on Texaslegal.org receive more or fewer visitors. This information is anonymous and cannot be traced back to a specific individual. The server log also can tell us which browser you are using (i.e. Internet Explorer or Netscape), and the name of the website that referred you to our site.
User-supplied information: Current and future services on Texaslegal.org, may require that you give us your name, email address, or other personal information. By providing this information, you can and will be able to transact business via the Internet which in the past required telephone or mail contact with Texas Legal. These online services are provided as a convenience to our members, and allow Texas Legal to provide you with efficient and high-quality service at a lower cost.
Access to some services is protected by a password or PIN number. We recommend that you not divulge your password or PIN number to anyone.
Certain features of Texaslegal.org allow Groups, Attorneys and Members to request updates to their membership information, including their address, telephone numbers, and email addresses. Groups, Attorneys and Members should be aware that certain member information, regardless of whether it is submitted via Texaslegal.org, is subject to the Texas Public Information Act. This act requires Texas Legal to disclose this information upon request. Because of this requirement, this information may be obtained by commercial vendors. Groups, Attorneys and Members can limit the information they provide to Texas Legal as long as Texas Legal has at least one address on file so that mandatory compliance materials can be mailed to and reach the Groups, Attorneys and Members.
