When uploading data or information to the Service, you send us such data but you may also be sending file system information, including names of files and directories. YesLaw may also record your IP address when you submit information. YesLaw also may collect, at your option, certain preference and demographic information from you.
We track usage data and user traffic patterns throughout our site(s) to improve the Service and for billing purposes. This information is collected to help improve site flow and usability. In addition, we track click-through information (including IP addresses). We may correlate your Personal Data with your usage data for specific circumstances, including but not limited to, security reasons, for purposes of providing customer service, billing, or to track down a specific problem related to a specific user’s use of the Service.
All Personal Data collected by YesLaw is used for internal purposes of providing the Service, providing support to users, improving the Service, billing purposes, and for YesLaw’s and the Service Affiliates’ marketing purposes .

This aggregated data may be disclosed to Service Affiliates and other third parties, but will not be connected to your Personal Data. By accessing and using our protected and secured sites, you agree to maintain the confidentiality of the user name and password you selected to access such site(s), and you also consent to our Terms and Conditions of Use.
All users may opt to remove their Personal Data from our live database by contacting YesLaw and canceling their YesLAW user account, although your Personal Data and other information may be retained for billing purposes, in our archive or backup records, or for other required purposes, such as to comply with applicable law.

Change of Ownership
In the event of a change in ownership (including through bankruptcy), or a merger, acquisition or sale of assets with or to another entity, we reserve the right to transfer all of the YesLAW user information, including Personal Data, to such separate entity. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you (by posting on our site or an email to the email address you provide when you register) of any change in ownership, merger or acquisition of the YesLAW Service assets by a third party.
The circumstances under which YesLaw may disclose user electronic communications are when: (i) it is necessary in order to provide the Service to the user; (ii) it is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of YesLaw, its users or third parties’; (iii) it is required to cooperate with interception orders, warrants or other legal process that YesLaw determines in its sole discretion to be valid and enforceable; and/or (iv) it is necessary to provide to a law enforcement agency when the contents are inadvertently obtained by YesLaw and appear to pertain to the commission of a crime that, in YesLaw’s reasonable opinion, has not yet been reported.
Personal Data may be stored and processed in the United States, or in any other country in which YesLaw or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using or accessing the Service, you consent to any such transfer of Personal Data outside of your country.

Although we make good faith efforts to store the information collected by the YesLAW Service in a secure operating environment that is not available to the public, such as using SSL security measures, YesLaw cannot guarantee complete security. Further, while we take reasonable steps to ensure the integrity and security of our network and systems, we cannot guarantee that our security measures will prevent third-party “hackers” or “crackers” from obtaining this information.
