This Privacy Policy applies to any user or visitor of the Business IP Law (“BIPL”) website, www.businessiplaw.com and mobile applications that include a direct link to this Privacy Policy. We take your privacy seriously. This Privacy Policy informs you of our policies and practices regarding the collection and use of your personal information, and it sets forth your privacy rights.

 

Information We Collect

 

Personal Information. We collect personal information that identifies you such as your name, title, employer, address, telephone number, email address or any information you provide (“Personal Information”) by phone, email or otherwise.

Automated Information. As is true of most other websites and mobile applications, the BIPL website collects certain information automatically and stores it in log files. The information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, the region or general location where your computer or device is accessing the internet, browser type, operating system and other usage information about the use of our website, including a history of the pages you view.

Through Cookies and Other Similar Technologies. “Cookies” include commonly used pieces of information in the form of small files that are placed on an individual’s device to enable the individual to more easily communicate and interact with the website. When you visit our website, we may send one or more cookies to your device. They enable us to store information about your device which helps us, among other things, to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and enhance the level of services and functions provided. 

Do Not Track. Our website does not support Do Not Track settings (“DNT”) at this time. DNT is a privacy preference you can set in your web browser to indicate that you do not want certain information about your website visits collected across websites when you have not interacted with that service on a page.

How We Use Personal Information

BIPL will not use your Personal Information for any purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally obtained without your prior consent. We use your Personal Information to communicate with you, to provide support regarding our services. We may use your Personal Information and data to contact you via email or by telephone regarding your services.

How We Share Information with Others

We do not rent, sell, or share your Personal Information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies for their direct marketing purposes. We use third party service providers to perform functions or services on our behalf. When we transfer your information, we require all our service providers to maintain the privacy, confidentiality and security of the Personal Information and data. We take steps to ensure that these parties take protecting your privacy as seriously as we do.

Types of Service Providers. We engage third parties to perform services on our behalf such as software maintenance services, hosting services, email service providers, database management, web analytics, and other services.

 

Law Enforcement and Internal Operations. Personal Information may be provided where we are required to do so by law, or if we believe in good faith that it is reasonably necessary (i) to respond to claims asserted against BIPL or to comply with the legal process (for example, discovery requests, subpoenas or warrants); (ii) to enforce or administer our policies and agreements with users; (iii) for fraud prevention, risk assessment, investigation, customer support, product development and de-bugging purposes; or (iv) to protect the rights, property or safety of BIPL, its users or members of the general public. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify users about law enforcement or court ordered requests for data unless otherwise prohibited by law. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to any third-party request to compel disclosure of your information.
