This Site is a commercial website and is intended for use by persons and organizations, and their employees and agents, to obtain information about LexShift’s products and services (collectively, the “Site”). 

If you have arrived at this Privacy Policy by “clicking” on an authorized link directing you to a LexShift-operated Site, then this Privacy Policy applies to you and such Site. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any website owned and/or operated by or on behalf of any third party, even if we provide a link to such website on one of our Sites. Capitalized terms used herein without definition shall have the meanings given such terms in LexShift’s Terms of Use.

We created this Privacy Policy to help you understand how we collect Personal Information, what types of Personal Information we collect, how we use and share it, the steps we take to safeguard it, and the choices you have regarding how it may be used and disclosed. This Privacy Policy addresses some types of information, including Personal Information, means of collecting such information, and uses of such information that may not presently apply to you or the Site.  We are nevertheless advising you about these matters because we want to maintain flexibility in offering additional features without having to revisit this Privacy Policy every time we revise the Site or offer new functions.  No description of any type of information, means of collecting information, including personal information, or use of such information will obligate us to collect or retain any particular information, make any particular use of any such information, or offer any particular functionality for the Site.

Please note that the Site may be hosted in countries other than yours, including the United States. By accessing the Site, you expressly consent to the transfer of your information to places outside of your home country, which may provide for different data protection rules than in your country.

We collect Personal Information from you or about you when you provide it to us directly through the Site or otherwise, such as signing up for a newsletter or by joining our mailing list. We may also obtain Personal Information when you request information, products or services from, or otherwise interact with, us. We may also gather such Personal Information through your access to your account online, as well as your asking questions through the “Contact Us” section of the Site. You may, however, visit our Site without providing such information.

3. Cookies. 

The Site may use a browser feature known as a “cookie.”  A cookie is a piece of data stored on the computer that runs an Internet browser and is commonly used to store information about a consumer’s online activities, including information such as the content or advertisements that a consumer views or the pages a consumer visits within a particular website.  It can contain information about you, your computer, your browser, your session, the websites you visit and other information about you or others who use, or have used, the computer or browser you use to access the Internet. We use cookies as a convenience feature to save you time, to understand how our Site is used, and to improve the content and offerings on our Site. For example, we may use cookies to personalize your experience at our web pages or recall your specific information on subsequent visits (e.g., to recognize you by name when you return to our Site). We may also use cookies to offer you or inform you of products, programs or services that LexShift offers. 

You can also choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this through your browser (like Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer) settings. Each browser is a little different, so please look at your browser’s Help menu to learn the correct way to modify your cookies.

The information collected by these tools is aggregated and anonymized. To opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.  This will allow you to download and install a Google Analytics cookie-free web browser.

C. Information Provided To Us By Others.

We may supplement the information we receive from you with other information we receive from third-party sources.  Thus, information we obtain through the Site may be intermingled with and used in conjunction with information obtained through sources other than our Site, including both offline and online sources.

III. How We Use Information We Collect

We may use your Personal Information to help us improve our product and service offerings, improve the Site’s functionality, process queries on the Site, to contact you when necessary in connection with products or services you have inquired about via the Site, and to send you information about our products and services.  We may also use your Personal Information for any other purpose to which you expressly consent.

IV. Who We Share Your Information With

A. No Sale of Personal Information to Third-Parties for their Own Use.

LexShift does not, and will not, sell to third-parties for their own use any of the Personal Information that you provide. Similarly, except as described in this Privacy Policy, we do not disclose to third-parties information about your visits to our Site or Personal Information that you provide to us, except (i) when you direct us to disclose such information to intentionally interact with a third-party; or (ii) when we believe, in good faith, that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a legal obligation. As mentioned, LexShift also does not knowingly collect and therefore does not share Personal Information of minors under 16 years of age without affirmative authorization.

B. Sharing Personal Information with Service Providers That Help Us Perform Our Business Purposes.

We may provide your Personal Information and other information that you have provided to us through the Site to other companies (“Service Providers”) that provide services to help us with our business activities such as to host or maintain our Site; for data processing services; to provide website or data security; to provide operational, analytical or reporting services; or to provide technical support.  In connection with providing those services to LexShift, a Service Provider may have access to your Personal Information.  Such Personal Information will not be used for any purpose other than as reasonably necessary to perform a business purpose that LexShift authorizes, and it will not be further used or disclosed by the Service Provider to any Third Party.

C. Responding to Law Enforcement and Legal Requests.

LexShift may disclose your Personal Information when required by subpoena, court order or other legal process, or if it has a good-faith belief that disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with any applicable federal, state or local law or regulation, (b) assist government enforcement agencies, (c) investigate, prevent or take action in connection with suspected or actual illegal activities, (d) investigate suspected or actual violations of LexShift’s rights, (e) protect the rights, property or safety of LexShift and its customers or employees, or others, (f) investigate and defend against any third-party claims brought against LexShift or (g) protect the security and integrity of our Site.

LexShift may also disclose Personal Information and other information to a third party in connection with the sale, assignment or transfer of some or all of the assets of LexShift or its subsidiaries or affiliates or as the result of a change in control of LexShift, in which case we will require any such third party to treat any such Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.  Any such third party to whom LexShift sells, assigns or transfers LexShift’s assets will have the right to use the Personal Information and other information that you have provided to us.

E. Internal Use and Research.

LexShift reserves the right to use and disclose de-identified information; anonymized information; aggregated information or publicly available information that has not been combined with nonpublic Personal Information for purposes including, but not limited to, LexShift’s internal use and research.

V. Other Sites/Third Party Links

Our Site may contain links to other websites operated by third parties whose practices may be different than ours. When you click on such links and visit such other websites, you need to be aware that we may not control such other websites or such other websites’ business practices, and that this Privacy Policy does not apply to those other websites.  Consequently, the operators of the other websites may collect different kinds of information about you, and may use and disclose that information in different ways than we would. You should check the other sites’ privacy notices because LexShift has no control over information that is submitted to or collected by them. We encourage you to review other websites’ privacy policies and remind you that we will not be responsible for the actions of the operators of such websites, or their use of your information.

VI. Protection Of Your Information

LexShift will take reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to protect the Personal Information we collect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction that are appropriate to the nature of the data.  Our data security policies and practices are periodically reviewed and modified as necessary.

While LexShift strives to undertake reasonable measures to secure Personal Information provided to us through the Site, such security measures do not guarantee the security of all Personal Information, and LexShift cannot guarantee that the Personal Information it collects, uses and retains will be protected in all circumstances, including those beyond LexShift’s reasonable control.

VII. Notice Regarding Unauthorized Access or Disclosure of Personal Information

For the purposes of any applicable law regarding notification of persons whose Personal Information was, or is reasonably believed to have been, acquired by an unauthorized person, any required notification may, where permitted by law, be made by the use of e-mail, telephone, fax or mail (including a notice printed in an available area of a bill or statement) or by posting a notice on the Site.  The specific means used is up to us, and we will use our best judgment based on the circumstances and as may be required by law.  Where any notice is to be sent to a specific address or number (such as an e-mail address, physical address, telephone number, etc.), we will use the most recent available address in our records.  BY USE OF THIS SITE YOU AGREE TO THIS MEANS OF NOTIFICATION.
