What Information Do We Collect About Our Customers?
Legalinc may collect a variety of visitor data such as IP addresses, browser settings, internet service provider (ISP) information, referring/exit pages, operating systems, date/time stamps, and clickstream data (collectively “Visitor Data”). The Legalinc internal servers and software automatically recognize Visitor Data. No Personally Identifiable Information is collected in this process. The Site may use Visitor Data to compile traffic data about the types of visitors who use the Site at specific intervals (collectively “Traffic Data”).
We may use Traffic Data to analyze Site traffic, but this information is not examined for Personally Identifiable Information. We may also use Traffic Data to diagnose problems with our server, administer our Site, or display content according to your preferences. Visitor Data and Traffic Data may also be shared with business partners, affiliates, or advertisers on an aggregated and anonymous basis.
We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. web beacons), that help us track referrals from our partners and affiliates and better manage content on our site. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ Personally Identifiable Information.
Third Party Tracking
Legalinc requires each customer to provide us with personal information (collectively “Personally Identifiable Information”) to access and use Legalinc products and services. Personally Identifiable Information is captured only when a visitor accesses the Services, or speaks on the phone with a Legalinc employee, and willingly discloses that information. This disclosure may occur when a visitor registers with a Service, engages in transactions, contacts customer service, or participates in contests, promotions, surveys, forums, content submissions, requests for suggestions, or other aspects of services offered by Legalinc.
Personally Identifiable Information includes: (i) “Contact Data” (such as your name, address, city, state, zip code, phone number, and email address); (ii) “Financial Data” (such as your credit card number, expiration date, and verification code or bank account information); (iii) “Demographic Data” (such as your zip code and sex); and (iv) other “Legal Data” (such as your social security number, mortgage information, automobile information, marital information, trade secrets, inventions, and idea submissions and other sensitive information necessary to generate legal documents).
We may collect the information of third party individuals as necessary, such as to ask our customers to indicate beneficiaries of a will, record shareholders of a company, or register authorized contacts to access their Legalinc account. Legalinc uses this information for the sole purpose of administering its services for our customers, and does not use such information for any other reason.
Testimonials and Reviews
We display personal testimonials of satisfied customers received through email surveys. We ask for your specific consent as part of the survey. If you wish to update or delete your testimonial, you can contact us at support@Legalinc.com. We also display customer reviews. If you provide a review that we display and wish to update or delete it, you can also contact us at support@Legalinc.com.
In the regular course of our business, Legalinc may monitor and record phone conversations or email communications between you and Legalinc employees for training and quality assurance purposes. We may receive a confirmation when you open or click on content in an email from us, which helps us make our communications to you more useful and interesting. If you do not wish to receive email from Legalinc, you may unsubscribe from our mailing list on any of the emails we send.
How Do We Use the Information We Collect and Do We Share the Information We Receive?
We use information we collect from the Services to communicate with you, process your orders, facilitate your transactions with our third-party marketing partners, and inform you of offers and discounts. For example, you may receive a welcome email that confirms your username and password, and later receive communications responding to your inquiries, providing services you request, and managing your account. We occasionally send service-related announcements, for example, to alert you if we need to temporarily suspend the Site for maintenance.
We send promotional emails and newsletters from time to time to users who have registered on the site and to those who have opted in to receive such emails. Generally, you may not opt-out of service-related or transactional communications, which are not promotional. If you do not wish to receive service-related communications, you may terminate your account by contacting Customer Care at support@Legalinc.com. However, you can opt-out of promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions in any communication or by emailing us at support@Legalinc.com.
You may choose not to provide Legalinc with Personally Identifiable Information or you may turn off cookies in your browser by changing its settings. If you make these decisions, you may continue to use the Services and browse its pages. However, Legalinc cannot process orders without Personally Identifiable Information.
Surveys, Sweepstakes, and Contests
We may provide you the opportunity to participate in surveys on our site, to measure customer satisfaction. If you participate, we may request certain personally identifiable information from you. Participation in these surveys, sweepstakes, or contests is completely voluntary and you therefore have a choice whether or not to disclose this information. The requested information typically includes name, email address, and mailing address.
We share customer information with third parties only as follows:
Legalinc, sometimes with the assistance of a third party or Legalinc subsidiary, may use your Personally Identifiable Information to process your payment through merchant account services, and to generate the products and services you order. Your Contact Data may be used to follow up with you on transactions you initiate through the Services, respond to inquiries made through the Services, inform you of changes to the Services, and send you additional information about Legalinc and its products and services.
Registered Agent Requests
If you designate a person or company other than Legalinc to serve as the registered agent for your business entity, Legalinc may provide your name and contact information to that party, if the designee requests.
Third Party Marketing
Unless specifically authorized by you, we do not provide Personally Identifiable Information to third parties for marketing purposes. If you express interest in a third party offer or purchase a package that includes a third-party offer, we may provide your Personally Identifiable Information to that third party solely in connection with the offer you have selected.
Required by Law
We may also disclose your personal information: as required by law, such as in response to a subpoena or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a legal request.
Contact Data and Traffic Data are used to gather general statistics about our customers and visitors. We may use Demographic Data to generate collective information about our users, but not in a way that identifies any user specifically. For example, we may inform third parties about the number of registered users and unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed.
We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with companies that provide support services to us (such as a printer or email service provider), or help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose.
Partner and Affiliate Tracking
Blogs and Forums
The Site includes a publicly accessible blog and interactive forums. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. You should use caution when deciding whether to disclose your personal information in these areas of the site. To request removal of your personal information from our community forums, contact us at support@Legalinc.com. In some cases, we may not be able to remove your personal information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
We may share Personally Identifiable Information and other data with businesses controlling, controlled by, or under common control with Legalinc. If Legalinc is merged, acquired, or sold, or if some or all of our assets or equity are transferred, we may disclose or transfer Personally Identifiable Information and other data in connection with the associated transactions.

User and Authorized Contact Access to Order Information
Legalinc will give you, or anyone listed as an authorized contact for your account, information about your orders. This may include information about the nature and status of your order, information you provided to process your order, payment information, and contact information.

You can confirm who is listed as an authorized contact for your account, add new authorized contacts, or remove authorized contacts by clicking first on “My Account”, and then on “User Settings”. We may send a confirmation email to your authorized contact(s), alerting them that they have been added as an authorized contact.

For product-specific information about who may request information about your order, please contact Customer Care at support@Legalinc.com.
At minimum, we will retain your information for as long as needed to provide you services, and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. Legalinc may maintain some or all of this data in its archives even after it has been removed from the Site.

Documents are delivered to you via UPS or similar overnight delivery services, the United States Postal Service, or email. Unfortunately, no data transmission is guaranteed to be 100% secure and we therefore cannot guarantee the security of information you transmit to or from the Site, Applications, or through the use of our services, and you provide this information at your own risk.

Our Policy Toward Children
The Services are not directed to children under 18 years of age. In order to use Legalinc, you are required to be 18 years of age or older. If you are under 18, you may not use the services without parental consent. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under 13. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain her Personal Information without the parent or guardian’s consent. If a parent or guardian learns his or her child has provided us with Personal Information, he or she should contact us at email@example.com (please include the child’s name, address, username, and e-mail address) If we learn a child under 18 has provided us with Personal Information, we will delete such information from our files.
Consent to Transfer
Our computer systems for the Services are currently governed by and operated in the United States, so your personal data will be processed by us in the United States, where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. Legalinc makes no representation that the Services are governed by or operated in accordance with the laws of any other nation. If you create an Account with the Services as a visitor from outside the United States, by using the Services, you agree to this Policy and you consent to the transfer of all such information to the United States, which may not offer an equivalent level of protection of that required in the European Union or certain other countries, and to the processing of that information as described in this Policy.
